USDA Certified Organic Shea Nilotica-Unrefined

East African Shea Butter

Vitellaria Nilotica

Origin: Uganda

East African Shea Butter is absolute perfection! It is not the same as Ivory or Yellow shea butter from West Africa. The texture is soft, creamy, and smooth. The butter has a pleasantly mild but sweet aroma that is sure to please. This is a for sure winner in bath and body products. The smooth texture can be maintained without the addition of a carrier oil. Whipping this beauty is not necessary, but it will also whip up beautifully for whipped body butters. 


Great to use alone or as an ingredient for Skincare and Hair care recipes.

    Shea Nilotica

    I have been in love with this product since I first tried it. My customers love the feel. I just put it in the mixer and add my other ingredients (which is not much) and it comes out perfect

    Creamy & gently scented

    Consistency: is really nice and creamy ,though my batch seems to have a few small grains , I’m sure It’ll be fine once I whip it up. Scent: Compared to unrefined Shea butter/ west Africa this is a dream. Smells nice, with a light scent. This is a big plus for me ,although I’m accustomed to unrefined Shea, I will always prefer a butter without a heavy nut scent for fragrance purposes. Happy customer.

    So soft and creamy, the family loves it. It had some chunky parts but I can whip it out. I will definitely order again.

    Love The Nilotica. Its by far my fave. Creamy Goodness mmmmm

    Everything from 3Cayg is amazing! Both their Shea butters are creamy, but the nilotica is "perfection" like they say. It is slightly more silky oily feeling than the regular shea, but spreads like an absolute dream and absorbs much faster. The best part is if it melts and resolidifies, it's still amazingly creamy. The women producing the Shea butters for 3cayg are artisans . The butters have a perfect texture and are extremely clean. The Nilotica never becomes grainy or oily. I just love it. I've tried creaming the unrefined she's as they suggest with a wooden mallet, and it's awesomely smooth like the nilotica). But the nilotica does have a special feel to its creaminess factor, its just oh so creamy!
