Review: Organic Raw Unrefined Shea Butter From Ghana and Beauty by Shea #BeautyByShea
I have always wanted to learn how to make my own natural, organic beauty products, soaps and scrubs. And give them for presents at the holidays and birthdays. So, I jumped at the chance to review this delicious Organic Raw Unrefined Shea Butter from Ghana in Ivory.
After receiving it (and it came such a nice sized order straight away from Amazon) I set about looking for recipes and ideas to make shea butter gifties. I found an online wholesale site and ordered some basic scents and containers.
Check out my review on Amazon for more details:
I have never experienced raw shea butter, but have always bought it with ingredients mixed in from a major company. I was thrilled to receive this organic butter and make recipes with it. The first thing I decided to do was order a bunch of first grade or grade A fragrance to make shea butter creams with as presents for my friends and family. I took a poll on fave scents and ordered a few from a wholesale supplier including almonds,vanilla ,lavender and other pleasant basic scents. Then, I ordered a couple of little plastic containers to mix the shea butter and scent and coconut oil in. (I love natural oils best). It was easy to use, arrived in a timely manner and worked well with my ingredients. Top quality and organic, just like it should be. I highly recommend this Shea Butter.
So....what I received?:

Why Ivory as opposed to yellow Shea butter?
1. Boiled for a longer period of time mellowing out color to more milder light.
2. Lighter – absorbing into the skin faster with extra fluff.
3. Does not change color of skin.
4. Has a more pleasant nutty smell.
5. Ivory Shea butter is traditionally beige or lighter in color."
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
