I think it was early last year that SheaMoisture released a 100% Coconut Oil product and now for all the shea butter lovers, the SheaMoisture 100% Raw Shea Butter is available now. You can get it at TARGET for $10.99 for 10.5 oz.
SheaMoisture’s 100% certified organic Shea Butter, ethically sourced from women’s cooperatives in Northern Ghana, replenishes hair and skin with vitamins A & E and essential fatty acids. This provides multiple benefits – comforts irritated skin, deeply moisturizes dry, cracked skin, hydrates chapped lips, soothes dry, irritated scalp, conditions hair, protects hair from heat, and softens skin and hair.
I usually get my 100% raw shea butter from Coastal Scents which is also fair trade and sourced from countries in West Africa (Ghana, Mali, and Burkina Faso) and you can get them in various larger sizes besides 10 oz.
But this SheaMoisture 100% Raw Shea Butter is definitely another option to get fair trade raw shea butter. Get it here.
How do you use your raw shea butter? I actually make a whipped shea butter cream which includes other oils and butters and use that on my body and sometimes in my hair to seal. I don’t use it on my face though because I’ve found that even on its own, it’s too greasy for my taste but many people do love using it on their face and tout its anti-aging benefits. It also has some natural SPF in it which is great if you use it on your face.
