I whipped this shea butter with equal parts cocoa butter, coconut oil and magnesium and added a few essential oils to make a chocolate orange scented body butter for bedtime. I've also found it helped to dry up and clear the acne that had been plaguing my back and shoulders!
The only problem with this shea butter is that it is refined, which I did not realize until after purchasing. It is white and odor-free and not suitable for the face as it is lacking many of the beneficial properties of unrefined shea butter.

Love love love this shea butter, which I buy on repeat as a facial moisturizer (yes, my skin is extraordinarily dry). Just a note to new buyers, the organic version does sometimes have an odd texture—it can be crumbly, and need a bit of warming up and working in to get going on the skin; alternately, I've had some batches that are creamier and others rather hard. I thought it might be the temp of my bathroom in summer vs winter, but that doesn't seem to make much difference—I suspect it might be the temperature at which it's packaged. Nonetheless, a fantastic product and always delivered super quick thanks to Well.ca!
