Pure Shea Butter


Pure shea butter is extracted in three ways


  • Raw shea butter is extracted using water. The pure shea butter obtained from this method appears like whipped cream and is grayish yellow in color. This type of whipped shea butter is pure and sans preservatives and mineral oils.
  • Refined shea butter is processed when compared to the earlier method of extraction.
  • Hexane is used to extract highly refined shea butter, which is pure white in color.

Some prefer the nutty smell that pure shea butter exudes while others opt for the highly refined shea butter that has been filtered through clay and de-odorized. It is advisable to use products made from pure shea butter rather than those where chemicals such as hexane are used. Pure shea butter has a natural smell. If your shea butter does not have any smell, check to see if it has become too old or rancid. Shea butter need not be refrigerated.
