I would give it no stars if that was an option. I didn't know organic meant it had BUGS in it! Do not buy this, if it has bugs what other impurities and or toxins does it have that you can't see. I make my own lotions and body butters so I can avoid those things. BUYER Beware!

I LOVE making my own body products and shea butter is one of my favorite ingredients for moisturizing my skin! However, I used it for a little and brought what I had left through the airport (under 3 oz) and I got stopped by TSA for having a potentially dangerous item. When they swabbed the actual product, it came back as a class 4 explosive! (flammable solids; substances liable to spontaneous combustion; substances which emit flammable gases when in contact with water) They later confiscated the item and I had to be interviewed. I love shea butter, but TSA is telling me that I'm putting a potentially dangerous product on my skin.

I've been ordering shea butter for about two years and this has to be the best quality I've gotten. I haven't found shea butter of this quality for such a good price. Its all ivory, no other colors in it. It's not gritty and its hard but melts on contact with your skin and becomes creamy. After I used it my skin instantly looked smooth and healthy. I don't know why people keep complaining about the smell here thats what raw and unrefined shea butter is supposed to smell like. If it doesn't have an earthy or slightly nutty smell then you don't have good shea butter. If you don't want the smell than buy refined shea butter, but you wont have any of the vitamins or healing properties that it's known for. I will definitely be purchasing all my shea butter from this seller from now on.

I was surprised that the butter didn't have a container (arrived in a clear plastic bag), but I could certainly get beyond that because I think that there is too much waste in packaging: however, I was really disappointed to weigh the shea butter on my kitchen scale, to find that it wasn't quite a pound! Seems to me that a company would rather sell a bit over instead of a bit under---better for business that way.

I use TONS of Shea butter. It's my #1 staple for hair and body.

Maybe I got a batch batch but there is noway I will ever intentionally by this kind from this seller again.

This Shea butter is insanely gritty. I tried to work with it...mix it...whip it. And Chile you can rub it together til your palms are sore...there is noway those little balls are going to give. It's a gritty mess.

I can't use this on my body and certainly not my curly hair!

I wouldn't be as annoyed if I didn't need it now! I use it daily and have already run out of my last batch (which was sooo smooth). Shea butter is natural hair magic! This is a curse.

Now I have to wait for UPS to pick it up. And 4 days to get more. What ever will my hair do???

Highly disappointed.

Can't figure out how to add photos! My hair is full of white balls! 🤣

Wow, this product smells wonderful..to me the scent is like a light cocoa butter. (looks just like the advertised picture, came in bags shown sealed) Melts quite easily to warmth of your skin, not too oily just creamy and smooth! Luv luv luv it and will repeat order. Maybe return soon to add another star after I have fun finding ways to mix and use. This is my 1st time ordering this item so took a chance. So far so good! *(excuse the ink stains i used a pen to cover the barcode too many hackers out here!! lol!)

PRODUCT NOTES
The image listed shows the shea butter in chunks, but it arrived in a round tub/plastic container. The shea butter in the tub was a smooth and solid and filled the container. It seems to be a relatively quality from what I can tell so far by visual appearance and smell.

USAGE
I whipped this with coconut oil, olive oil, rosehips oil, argan oil, vitamin E, and jojoba oil to make a very moisture rich lotion. The majority of the ingredients I used in this mixture were the shea butter and coconut oil. I placed all the ingredients in a blender (Nutribullet) and blended until smooth and homogeneous (about 2 minutes). I have used it on my face and body and have not had any issues so far. That is to say, it is a very gentle moisturizer and has not irritated my skin at all. I was using Retin-A when I did this (anyone who has used the topical ointment can tell you it makes your skin extremely sensitive, dry, and exposed) and I did not have any adverse reactions whatsoever.

This was my first time buying Shea butter so I really don't have any knowledge for a comparison. I purchased it for a recipe for face cream and it worked great for that. Price and speed of delivery were great.
