Comments: I have to be honest, I am a bit confused about my two purchases of Shea Nilotica. I first ordered a small size to check the quality. I was pleased and then ordered the large 18kg size. It was until recently that I went to use the large container that I discovered the quality is quite different from the smaller container. The small size was was smooth and creamy and grit free. The large size is not as smooth, or creamy and is quite gritty.
FNWL Response: Hi Shawna, Shea Butter, including Nilotica Butter, can naturally become gritty in certain circumstances. Be assured that this is not a reflection of the quality of the butter. You can eliminate any grittiness when you formulate with the butter. Please read the following article for details: http://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/library/sheabutter.asp

Comments: I've tried both the organic Burkina Faso and the organic Nilotica Shea Butter. The Nilotica is so much softer and easier to rub into skin. I also prefer the smell of it to the Burkina Faso. The only downside is the cost difference. I use shea butter to make a lotion for my child. It has helped reduce the itching and redness better than anything else we've tried.
"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
