amazon ivory raw unrefined shea butter review

I am sure that you have heard of raw unrefined shea butter. Shea butter comes more often than not, from Africa. The main place being referred to as ‘The African Shea Belt’. It covers approximately 3,000 miles. It spans from the foothills of the eastern Ethiopian highlands across to Senegal in the west. This is the region which occurs between the southern African rainforests and the northern Sahara desert. The more popular areas being Benin, Mali, Ghana, and the Ivory Coast.

I am a big time lover of shea butter and although I order most of the times from Back2Africa, there are times when I need my shea butter delivered tomorrow and not in a week or so. You can read more about shea butter in an article I wrote HERE!.

I ordered this brand from Amazon and was nicely surprised once I received it.

Benefits Of Shea Butter

As a regular user, I am well aware of the many benefits of this natural product and I most willingly share them with you so that you can be informed as well.

Here are a few of the many benefits that come with using shea butter:

  • It is a natural moisturizing agent
  • It has a long shelf life
  • It can be used medicinally – it can help in the lowering of cholesterol
  • It can be used for various skin issues such as eczema, sunburn, dryness, and more
  • It has anti-inflammatory properties
  • It can be used in the making of chocolate as substitute for cacao

And for most other long-term users, I am sure they would be able to add a few more benefits to add to this list.

How To Use Shea Butter

Using shea butter is not too complex, in fact, it is relatively simple. You can use it straight from the packet or you can add other wonderful oils – base oil as well as essential oils. 

You can use shea butter to make your own sunscreen protector, lip balm, body butter, or hair moisturizer. I usually make a ‘killer’ whipped shea butter moisturizer that I use from head to toe – for my hair, face, and body. You can see a copy of my recipe here.

Product Description And Features

Ivory Raw Unrefined Shea Butter is 100% unrefined. And because it is unrefined, you might find a few bits and pieces in the butter brick. You can simply melt and strain the bits and then use as you need.

Who Is Shea Butter For

Shea butter is for any and everyone. It can be used on babies as well as adults – male and female. Anyone who wants to have a great skin protectant and a moisturizing agent for their hair, body, or face, should give shea butter a try.

What I Like About Ivory Raw Unrefined Shea Butter

It is not difficult for me to tell you what I like about shea butter. It:

  • Is very malleable. I did not have any problems when I unwrapped the package. As a matter of fact, it was double packed and was easy to manipulate.
  • It smelled good.
  • For an unrefined product, I did not get a lot of particles in the butter itself, as is sometimes possible.
  • It is certainly value for money and I have no hesitation in purchasing again once my supply runs low.

What I Don’t Like About The Product

I did not find any issues with this brand of shea butter other than the few bits and pieces of the raw product that one usually finds in any unrefined product.

My Final Thoughts About Amazon Ivory Raw Unrefined Shea Butter

Quite frankly, this is a great product and I most definitely will purchase again. Have you tried it? Do you like shea butter? Or have I convinced you that it is worth trying? If I have. Be sure to leave me a comment below.

Using shea butter would be a great addition to your body, face, and hair regimen. Why don’t you give it a try!

    Thanks for this great article Michelle. I love the smell of Shea butter and I have a hand wash in my upstairs bathroom and I love how great is smells and it really makes your hands soft.

    When I was reading the part about you making your own moisturiser, before I read that you had put the recipe the thought that I must ask you for what to do came straight to my mind and then I noticed you had already put it up. It sounds good and I will certainly give it a try.

    Thank you.

    This was a great article and fun to read, thanks.
    I have heard about shea-butter years ago but wasn’t sure, back then, if this would be something good for me to try.
    Now I know!
    I certainly will try it out you certainly sound very confident in your article, 🙂

      Hello Sylvia,
      Thanks for visiting. Yes, I love shea butter, if you did not already notice. LOL
      Shea butter is especially great as a basic skin moisturizer if you happen to live in a place where there is a winter season. It is really moisturizing for the skin as it sometimes can get dry once the seasons start to change. I am happy that the article shed some more light on shea butter and that maybe you will give it a try.
      Good luck

      Hello there, Carole.

    Hello Michelle, I so do love me some shea butter! I am so amazed at all of its medicinal qualities. In fact, I sprained my ankle and it really swelled. So I took shea butter and added salt (its a West African remedy), heated it. Then applied it to my swollen ankles. I was amazed. I was actually able to walk on that foot later that day.

    So I am a big believer in all that shea butter can do. I even like to put it on my fingernails and cuticles.

    And, I did not know about it as a sunscreen protector. Good to know. And want to hear more about your killer shea butter moisturizer. Sounds like a fabulous healer for all parts of our bodies, yes?
    So enjoyed reading this article. Always such a pleasure to come to your site. I always learn something new! Thank you!
    In peace and gratitude, ariel

      Thanks for your visit, Ariel. Oh wow, another Shea Butter lover – yeah. Well, you sure taught me something. I did not know about adding salt to shea butter and using it as a salve for swelling – we surely learn something new every day! Yes, shea butter is a versatile product. It is simply amazing what Mother Nature can and has provided for our health and sustenance. Glad you found value in the article. And I welcome your visits.
      All the best, till the next time.
