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.

    I purchased Shea Nilotica a few years ago, and loved it. This new batch from East Africa is even better! I love the scent of this butter.

    Shea Nilotica

    This is my forever bae. For people who don’t like doing a lot of mixing, this is the Butter for you. For people who the regular Shea Butter might be too heavy for, this is also the butter for you. For people who aren’t trying to spend an arm, leg, and a couple of toes, this is also the butter for you. My only request is that y’all don’t hog all the nilotica. I’m gonna be very upsetty spaghetti.

    Good for people with allergies

    I use this in place of a regular moisturizer since I have contact dermatitis. It is a great substitute and has really soothed my skin in the harsh winter months.

    So Creamy

    Posted by Tori on Jan 21st 2021

    I love how creamy this butter is in comparison to regular Shea. I also noticed it’s more affective in softening the skin and helping to reduce breakouts.
