USDA Certified Organic Shea Butter: Highest Quality Unrefined Rare Nilotica, Certified Fair-Trade - 8oz


As soon as you uncap your first jar of pure, cold-pressed, unrefined organic shea butter from Sans Pareil Naturals, you’ll know right away by the creamy texture that you’re holding the purest East African shea butter in your hand, not West.

New and Improved for 2020!  Imported directly from a small fair-trade farm in Uganda, our unrefined USDA certified organic shea butter has up to 17x the healing power of standard West African shea from Ghana; plus it glides on smoother and smoother every time.

With five essential fatty acids plus vitamins A, E, F and K, our Premium organic raw shea butter is widely known as an all-around “skin powerhouse”.

Not only do the oils, vitamins and minerals moisturize your skin, but more olein oil in our nilotica shea butter is exponentially more effective than West African shea from Ghana at protecting your skin.

This helps treat conditions like eczema and severe dry skin, while nourishing aged and damaged skin to return that vibrancy you thought was gone for good.

Shea Butter Overview

Shea butter is a staple of natural skin care throughout the world. Many people have discovered it’s secrets: It’s essentially a superfood for your skin and hair! The rich butter comes from the nuts of the Shea Tree, which are native to Africa. The Shea nut has been traditionally cultivated for centuries and contains skin-soothing and medicinal properties.
Shea Butter has a smooth, silky texture that stays firm at room temperature but softens with body heat. There are so many ways to incorporate Shea Butter into your healthy self-care routine to nourish your skin and hair.

History of Shea Butter

Going back to the late eighties Joseph Kony, leader of the Lord’s Resistance Army (LRA), had terrorized Northern Uganda. Ancient and previous Shea trees were cut down for simple firewood. The ancestral practice of Shea farming was nearly lost forever during these times.
Fast forward to today: Now more than 2,000 independent farmers have come to re-learn the practice of shea trading. All the changes over the years ensures the sustainability of the environment and the economy, as well as the restoration of the centuries-old practice of Shea cultivation.

The best shea butter on the planet comes from East African organic shea farms. Shea trees are grown in both West Africa and East Africa; however, Eastern shea nuts contain higher levels of olein acid, which means that the butter has more great-for-your-skin nutrients like vitamin A and vitamin E. Where West African shea butter can be hard and waxy, shea butter from East Africa is noticeably soft, light, and creamy. It is more spreadable and soaks easily into the skin. East African shea butter is considered the luxury shea butter. It is harvested with care and is the richest, nutrient-dense butter that works perfectly for the skin. The butter effortlessly soaks into the skin to protect, moisturize, and heal

Wow! I am so pleased with this Shea Butter!! My face skin has become sensitive since menopause. I used something that caused my face to become dry and inflamed! I was red especially on my nose and across cheeks. I needed healing! I looked on the internet for help. It said to use shea butter,oats, milk & honey! I found a bar soap here on Amazon that has the other 3 ingredients. I tried another more expensive shea butter, but it made my inflammation worse! This one is the best for me! It is hard but when the heat of your fingers touch, it melts enough to apply. I don't care because it works!! Quickly too! I just got this less than a week ago! This is a wonderful product!! In addition, it helps women who really needs our support! An added bonus for me - it is cheaper! This company and Amazon are the BEST!! Thank you for an amazing product!! God Bless You!!

This is the best Shea Butter out there. Reasonable price and very mild Shea smell. I have Psoriatic arthritis and Sorgrens which causes serve dry skin So many creams tout they work miracles Don't believe it, Shea does.

I bought some other shea butter but couldn’t give it as the gift I intended to because it was hard and grainy feeling. This shea butter is nice and smooth and I was happy to give it to my mom for Christmas. Smelled pleasant too. She had never heard of shea butter and liked the feeling on her skin

I have super dry skin, so I'm always trying different lotions. I love the Organic Shea Butter, as it goes on nice & smooth, but doesn't leave you feeling greasy at all. It took a little getting used to, as the Shea Butter is actually hard (not hard-as-a-rock, but not like most lotions), so a little paddle or the back of your thumbnail to scoop some out is required. But then, it warms up quickly and blends in smoothly, with a very mild scent that fades pretty quickly, with no waxy additives. I will definitely be buying more as Christmas Gifts!

As soon as I opened the jar of this soft Nilotica shea butter and scooped a little into my hands and rubbed them together, I knew this was a good buy and just what I was looking for. It's smooth, soft and goes on the skin like soft butter. Love it! No strong nutty Shea butter scent either. It's Fair Trade and Organic! You can't go wrong, and I didn't when I purchased it. Even the package is special and nice. And it's a nice size jar too. This is a keeper and I will be ordering it again.
D. White

This is an excellent product. I had never used it until I got the email from Amazon and decided to try it. It blends beautifully into the skin and the slight odor disappears in a few minutes.I had seen it advertised but never tried it. I am glad that I did. The product came on time in a very nice box that could be used to give as a gift in the future. A little goes a long way and this will last for awhile.
Charlotte R Weinberger

I just received my order and LOVE this product. This was my first time trying shea butter. When I opened the bottle the shea butter was in a semi-solid form. I scooped some out of the bottle and warmed it in my hands then applied the shea butter to only one arm and within minutes my arm was softer and smoother compared to the other arm. It was amazing how it reduced the look of crepey skin. I won't waste my money on expensive creams anymore. Try this shea butter and see for yourself!

One look at the product tells you it is quality. I have only used it a few days but there is a noticeable difference in my skin. I have an autoimmune disease which leaves my skin feeling like a million little cuts, redness & tightness. So far this shea butter has already made my skin more comfortable...

I have only tried one other shea, sample size of nolitica shea. That was from Garden of Wisdom. That was softer and a bit grainy. I didn’t know this company, but GoW was out, so I got this. . I am very happy with it. It feels very rich and soft when it melts. The texture is a bit like cold butter and melts on contact like that would. It goes in fast and is not greasy for such a rich moisturizer. It is harder to get of the jar but it is satisfying to feel it melt. I like that it's hard. It's quite rich. You don't need to use much at a time anyway.. Either way they all work. I use a plastic cake as a spatula to extract it. I put some in a small pot to carry to use as a lip/hand balm. I keep the big jar near the tub.
This works great on my dry skin, as a lip balm, hair oil, hand cream, general moisturizer and face cream. It’s really helping my very dry eczema prone skin. A terrific butter. Has a light play doh or raw pasta smell. Great stuff.
