Refined Shea Butter Bulk
Our bulk refined Shea Butter is great for cosmetics and soaps. After shea butter is extracted from the Shea nut the natural butter is filtered to remove any impurities, resulting in a creamy off white color and an ultra high quality pure product. The refined shea butter also has less odor, making it shea butter of choice for the soap making and personal care industry. This is definitely one of our best sellers. This product comes from Burkina Faso, Africa.
Virgin Unrefined (certified organic) Shea Butter
Our Virgin Unrefined African Shea Butter is extracted from the Shea nut and left completely unrefined. Because of the lack of refinement, Bulk African Shea Butter has a pale yellowish color and has the typical odor normally associated with Shea Butter. This shea butter comes from Burkina Faso, Africa and is certified organic.
At Bulk Apothecary we offer high-quality Shea Butter at amazing prices. We have always been able to offer incredible prices on our products we sell in our store because we sell our own, quality products directly to the customer.
Shea Butter Benefits
Pure Sea Butter first became popular in Africa where it is widely used in cooking and medicinal purposes. Eventually it made its way to the west as more people discovered its amazing emollient qualities. Shea Butter has a high level of non-saponifiables and other qualities that makes it a popular ingredient in many cosmetic supplies, lotions, and other skin care products.
Shea Butter can improve skin elasticity, which has made it popular with both men and women. Today it is used as an essential ingredient for belly butters and stretch mark creams.
More than that, though, Shea Butter can also block the sun’s ultraviolet rays, so you will often find it as a major ingredient in sun block products, lip balms, and lip gloss. It can also be used as an anti-inflammatory and humectants which makes it very useful in medicinal ointments and creams.
Types of Shea Butter
At Bulk Apothecary we offer a couple different kinds of Shea Butter to fit your exact needs.
Refined Shea Butter – Our bulk refined Shea Butter is most often used for cosmetics and soaps. The process to refine the butter involves extracting it from the Shea nut and filtering out any of the impurities. This results in a creamy off-white color and an extremely pure product. There is also less of an odor, which is why refined butter is the normal choice for the soap making and personal care industry.
Unrefined Shea Butter – We also sell butter that is left unrefined. This gives it a pale yellowish color and has the typical odor normally associated with Shea Butter.

I have been purchasing from Bulk Apothecary for the last 8 months and am thrilled with the quality of their products and service. I purchased both refined and unrefined Shea Butter to test them in my home made creams. Both had a wonderful texture that did not crystalize.

I ordered the 7 lb bucket of virgin/unrefined/organic and it is beyond perfect. The price is wonderful and the shipping was very fast. I highly recommend this!

I order 7# and it arrived in a couple of days in a nice bucket. It was whipped and beautiful. I was thrilled with the service and quality. The product was better than I had expected - what a nice surprise!
That being said, I was worried because after I ordered it, I saw some negative reviews. BUT, my situation was perfect. I will definitely order from them again.

This is my favorite Shea butter by far! The product itself is fabulous, but the packaging in the 7lb pail is perfect for storage and the shipping is super fast.

I buy this for my body butters. Whips up nicely. Wouldn't buy anywhere else.

I did try 7lb Natural Refine She butter and I love it. I ordered 2,5 weeks ago 55lb and I still waiting. Do someone know how long will take the shipment? I really need that She Butter for my products. Clients are waiting for that too and I do not know what to say to them. Is no information on website or tracing number, why?? I was riding to them couple times with no respond! Please help with any info.

Although the texture is a little grannie after contact with the skin it does become soft.
I'm use to a more creamy product but the end results are just fine.

Great product. Bought a small bucket full of this to make body butters for a wedding. Worked well and whipped up perfectly. Will purchase again!

This is the best shea butter I have ever worked with. It is soft and easy to whip up. No heat really required. I bought the 7 pound naturally refined pail. It is white is looks like cake icing when whipped up. I have made deodorant, lip balm, and whipped shea body butter so far. I use an ice cream scooper to get it out of the pail. I love it and will purchase again. I really recommend this product for anyone who uses shea.
