Native to Africa, Shea trees bear fruit once annually after they are approximately 20 years old. The fruit of the shea tree is also referred to as a nut. Africans have traditionally referred to the trees as Gods gift to Africa because of their long, 300-year lifespan and the rich, highly nourishing butter that they yield.

Our Shea Butter is pressed and fully refined. It is a semi-soft, white butter with the mild, characteristic odor of shea butter. Our Shea Butter is 100% natural and is produced from premium quality shea nuts. It is pressed and refined without the use of harsh chemicals.


Our Shea Butter is versatile and is well suited for a wide range of skin, cosmetic and hair care applications. Its composition and unique fatty acid profile gives it the ability to moisturize, soothe and protect even very dry and flaky skin. It promotes healthy hair by nourishing the hair shaft, and it conditions dry or distressed hair.

Comments: First time ordering from FNWL. The refined Shea Butter feels creamy, soft and smooth. I like the texture. I would order again, but it is a bit high for my current financial state. However, I am pleased with the overall product.

Customer Testimonial

"Thank you for getting my order to me faster than I imagined with your move. I hope your new home is wonderful! I LOVE the Brown Sugar and Bay Rum scents. I purchased both due to the samples you sent me several weeks ago. I also love the free gift, the heart shaped cellulite brush. What class, a nice little gift for waiting for a short time. Thanks so much!"
