Great product to use on your skin
Melts in yours palms it's not hard
05/04/2021, By Christine
Brilliant product that I use night and day not only on my face but all over my ageing body and whatever is left on my hands I let it be absorbed in my hair as it seems to really condition my naturally curly hair
31/03/2021, By Poppy
Very good on my dry skin & brighten the skin
24/03/2021, By JC
I wasn't sure about this product after reading the many reviews that say it smells weird and has a grainy texture, but mine arrived yesterday and I didn't experience these issues at all. I love it so much that I've put it on all over my body and face and my skin is feeling glorious.
13/03/2021, By Khosi
Good natural moisturizer for scalp, skin and lips. No flavour or smell. It can put you off if you like nice smelling things.
03/03/2021, By cheryline
Easy to apply, melts when warmed up in your hands.Love the moisturising qualities on my body and feet. I use it on my hair as well.
28/02/2021, By LR
Had to get use to the product and now I like it. At first the smell disturbed me, now it is good. /good quality
23/02/2021, By Etienne
I use this for my curly hair and I love it
17/02/2021, By Clair
Having used and loved another brand of shea butter, I was so disappointed in this product.
I use this brand daily, yet my hands are dry and rough like never before.
Grainy texture and weird smell that lingers doesn't help.
Sadly a waste of money
11/02/2021, By Carmen
Pure and organic - smell not great but it's natural so that is all that matters. love it and use it on all sorts from my skin to the dogs itchy spots. Great value for money and essential cupboard product.
07/02/2021, By Ash
Works as described.
Melts easily from body heat.
Cheapest I've seen for the quantity.
04/02/2021, By Ruzanne
I use this over and over and over. I will never purchase a different butter.
It smells beautiful and raw. It works fantastic for after epilating and waxing to avoid rash or ingrown hair with an exfoliator.
This stuff... I cannot go without.
03/02/2021, By Sabz

I'm so thrilled with my 2nd jar; the texture is creamier and softer. First order was very grainy and dry.
Hope it stays like this.
01/02/2021, By Ella
A small bit goes a long way. Good texture
29/01/2021, By Dee
Excellent products. This is a monthly purchase for me. I use it on my entire body, including hair. It's a wonderful evening under-eye cream, as it keeps wrinkles from forming and locks in hydration. To combat the graininess of the product, I place the entire jar in hot water.
29/01/2021, By One
I use this on my hair and skin. Keeps them both soft! I love it
28/01/2021, By One
My first time using raw shea butter and this was the best introduction to it.
20/01/2021, By Patricia
Love the quality
19/01/2021, By Natalie
Great shea butter
18/01/2021, By Melissa Naidoo
Absolute quality grade. I add 4 drops to a teaspoon of FTN shea butter and I use it as a hair mask. Unbelievable growth results
08/01/2021, By Duané
I love this, got it as a gift for a friend and she loves it too :)
06/01/2021, By Sabz
The best moisturizer - food for the skin.
Application can be a pain (especially if you are in a hurry).
But it's worth it.
04/01/2021, By Duané
Would def buy again, thanks!
31/12/2020, By Mirriam
Love it, and its a repurchase for me and its affordable. I use it to make whipped shea butter for my hair. I saw reviews that its good for skin and will try and use it for that next time
31/12/2020, By Olwethu
Melts in seconds, leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. No breakouts
29/12/2020, By Rosheen
Make my skin feel so smooth and like the smell
28/12/2020, By Clair
Having used another brand of shea butter, I expected this one to be better quality than it actually is.
Not very effective as a softening, moisturising product and the texture is very grainy.
Unfortunately the smell is extremely offputting.
26/12/2020, By Larissa
This is a bit difficult to use. However, it leaves skin looking and feeling great!
25/12/2020, By Papajoe
This is the best shea butter I've ordered from the website by far. However, the only elephant in the room for almost all shea butters is that it attracts insects.
18/12/2020, By Innecke
Really nice and smooth and leaves the skin soft. Use a little bit and warm it in your hands and apply all over. You don't need to use a lot. Can also be used in other DIY stuff
16/12/2020, By Thaakirah
I've been using this product for about 3 weeks now, and wow! My stretch marks have faded tremendously! I will start incorporating 100% extra virgin Olive oil from Faithful to Nature aswell
16/12/2020, By Nicole
Loved it, great on its own and so versatile when used as ingredient in DIY stuff!
11/12/2020, By Jane
has a nice smell
11/12/2020, By Bhavna
A little goes a long way. Can also be whisked making it easier to apply. I buy this every winter and jar lasts several months. This is the best of all the shea butter.
05/12/2020, By Lisa
It's OK for weekends or when you have time to fight with it. Extremely sticky, almost like a putty. Does not melt in your hand like coconut oil would, you have to actually place it in hot water. For this reason, a waterproof sticker would have been better.
02/12/2020, By Ronnelle
I love how natural it smells. And the glow it gives my skin is heavenly.
01/12/2020, By ashika
I love this! I use it all over and a little goes a long way, surprisingly not 'oily'
30/11/2020, By Megan
Smells amazing and really soothes my skin.
29/11/2020, By Candice
Really great as a moisturiser & getting rid of red dots on the skin... just requires some warming in the hands prior to application. Highly recommend!
27/11/2020, By Hannli
Love this product - can definitely recommend it!
25/11/2020, By Zizipho
I like it especially for my hair. But I'd suggest to anyone considering buying it to also buy an essential oil to cover the smell.
25/11/2020, By Innocentia
I love it but i don't like the smell.
24/11/2020, By Engela
23/11/2020, By Ruth
This is the only product I use to moisturise my face at night. In the morning all the oiliness has been absorbed and my skin is baby soft. Love it.
14/11/2020, By Sabrina
13/11/2020, By V
Best moisturiser out there! My skin gets particularly dry during winter and this is the perfect solution to that!
12/11/2020, By Lesa
12/11/2020, By Teresa
nothing better than this shea butter
11/11/2020, By Sandy
Absolutely fabulous product - I use it to keep my hands soft!
11/11/2020, By Kayla
After multiple dermatologist visits and no solution or progress, this has been the only product that has calmed my Eczema as well as helped with lightening the scarring!
10/11/2020, By Thandi
Very happy with it.
09/11/2020, By Emma
This is a good product, the bag is easy to seal and big enough to keep a small spoon in it. L- Glutamine has a faint aftertaste, regardless of which brand is used.
02/11/2020, By Anne
Don't be put off by its peculiar appearance and texture, it melts in your hands within seconds. This is my first time using shea butter. It feels like the most nourishing thing I have ever put on my skin, and to my surprise, my skin immediately looks 5+ years younger, I am GLOWING. I cannot wait to introduce this to my mother. Blown away! I wish I had started using this years ago!
27/10/2020, By Mudzunga
Absorbs well
25/10/2020, By Mien

23/10/2020, By Sam
Works well
22/10/2020, By Lins
Best product ever! So soothing and for the first time in years in not using cortisone for my terrible eczema flare ups. This works much better and absorbs fully without feeling greasy. In love!
22/10/2020, By Mich
Great for making your own hand and body creams. Natural base.
22/10/2020, By Sha
It's amazing. Makes my skin feel smooth and moisturized
20/10/2020, By Christine
I love it! use it on my face and body and have found it to work really well on my naturally curly grey hair has a. way to control the frizz and leave a healthy shine while conditioning the hair
17/10/2020, By FRANCIS
Great product
16/10/2020, By FRANCIS
14/10/2020, By Lerato
What a luxury! My skin looooves this butter! I’ve even started using it on my acne prone skin a lot more religiously. Add a drop or 2 of tea tree oil and those breakouts start to disappear
14/10/2020, By Tlego
Great when missed with essential oils. Love it for my hair and skin
12/10/2020, By Kayla
The smell is soothing, and it has definitely helped tone down my eczema. It's easiest to apply when melted over some warm water.
11/10/2020, By Carli
Great all over moisturizer, I used it for skin and sometimes hair
11/10/2020, By Carli
Definitely needs to be warmed in your palms a bit before using, but applies perfectly once softened.
07/10/2020, By Jeanne-Mare
Very good for dry skin. Avoid using on face if your face is oily
07/10/2020, By Liz
Such nice butter! Was told can be used on ethnic hair as moisturiser, looking forward to using it on baby's hair and body too!
05/10/2020, By Mirriam
Great for skin hair and nails
04/10/2020, By Sherele
Bought for diy hair and skincare. Beautiful quality product and happy it comes in glass!
25/09/2020, By ZDA
Brilliant product...makes skin feel soft and smooth immediately. Love that is can be used all over the body!
14/09/2020, By GB
I was a bit nervous about this as there were some reviews about it being gritty and quite thick, but if you just work with a little bit, it spreads easily. It doesn't leave a greasy feeling and absorbs well.
With all the sanitising, I pamper my hands at night with this, and they are amazing in the morning
14/09/2020, By Yammy
Love how it feels on my skin. I also use it on my hair and lips.
14/09/2020, By Gillian
Love this tea :)
10/09/2020, By Bronwyn
I love this product. I use it as part of my daily skin routine and I've noticed my skin feels healthier and softer.
09/09/2020, By Jacqui Weich
Great product. A little bit in the palm of your hand(it melt if you close your hand) with a drop of lavender essential oil is soothing to the skin. For body and face. I also mix it with coconut oil for very dry scalp and rub it in . Works very well. Best time to rub into skin if after a bath or shower when skin is still warm
07/09/2020, By Ilze
Great product, it is just a bit hard to apply to skin, lumps fall off when I rub it on my skin. But once it is on, if feels lovely.
02/09/2020, By Lonski
Man!!!!!!!!!!!!! This butter is just the one for me hey. I cannot even put into words how happy this Shea Butter makes me feel
31/08/2020, By Rae
Such a wonderful moisturizer - I use this on its own or mixed with the Crede sweet almond oil - great combo!
29/08/2020, By AG
If you want nice skin, use shea butter - if you can get it to a workable consistency, that is. This particular shea butter is harder and waxier than a previous brand I had used and is rather resistant to softening/melting in your palms. Maybe it will be easier to work with in warmer weather, but for now it is too much effort to get out of the jar. I look forward to using it at some stage because it is fantastic for nourishing and protecting very dry, cracked skin.
28/08/2020, By Nikki
25/08/2020, By Nabila
I love this because it’s so moisturizing but once it absorbs in your skin it doesn’t feel oily.
25/08/2020, By Jess
Love this product - great for super dry skin.
24/08/2020, By Tam

Great product, my skin feels so soft and smooth. I also melt the butter and use it on my hair. Absolute goodness in a bottle!
07/08/2020, By Veronica
Brilliant ...protects my skin
06/08/2020, By Fee
Love that it's in glass.
05/08/2020, By Marika
Texture a bit grainy but once it melts in your hands it easy to use. Makes skin feels amazing and moisturized.
04/08/2020, By Marilyn
Great product. Enjoyed how it felt on my skin
02/08/2020, By Rubleen
Love all the butters makes my body so soft
30/07/2020, By Lindo.
So I started using this product about a month ago as I was battling dry skin and high visible stretchmarks and am on my second tin , so far it has been nothing but kind to my skin, it leaves it soft, delicate with a pintch of glow.
27/07/2020, By Greenie
22/07/2020, By Jenna
We just love this, great as a massage butter
20/07/2020, By Sharon
All natural Shea Butter......removed strawberry skin in my inner thighs in one day!!!!! Stretch marks are slowly fading away I am happy!!!!
15/07/2020, By Nana
I have brown skin and have used thousands of moisturizers in my life time. This shea butter is crazy good! The grainy waxy texture is expected - so no issues with that. I use it on my face and on my entire body too. I used it on my son who has ezcema and it's incredible.
great price for a 200ml glass pot.
29/06/2020, By Maryna
I forgot to mention in my original review that it is important to keep this product in a cool place. My first jar became covered with mould during the Boland summer.
29/06/2020, By Maryna
This is one of the best moisturizers I have ever used. It makes my skin feel super soft and nourished. The only reason I am not giving it 5 stars is because of its slightly grainy texture and diffuclty in warming it to usable consitency.
17/06/2020, By Why Vuyiswa?
Works so well for my dry winter skin. Definitely worth it. Please restock soon, I'm in dire need
16/06/2020, By Rubleen
This is one of my favourite products from your site. Will always buy it
16/06/2020, By Rubleen

14/06/2020, By Dirk
Fragrant, affordable, down to earth natural shea butter. My sister really liked it and it was so affordable
08/06/2020, By Nombuso
I was scared to buy it because of the reviews, but it was the only one available at my time of purchase.
The product I received is wonderful, the smell takes some getting used to. But the texture was expected.
02/06/2020, By Mishka
No longer need any type of lotion
31/05/2020, By Tshego
Leaves skin soft. Great product
25/05/2020, By Sposh
It is an amazing product. I had leg acne/ strawberry legs and uneven skin tone, but since I started using this product it has cleared my skin. It is even and radiant and I use the product with Crede Sweet Almond Oil. I apply the oil before applying the Shea butter(Glowing skin for days). I even bought my mom the Shea butter because she had been on my case to want her skin to glow too. The shea butter has helped my skin in many way I just love it.
24/05/2020, By Rachel
I love this product. Very moisturising. I make body butter with it
24/05/2020, By Christine
I use it to make whipped body butter!
23/05/2020, By Mrs B
I would definitely recommend this product especially if you experience dry skin during winter. The texture is grainy however after rubbing it in your palms for a couple of seconds it melts and is easily applied to your skin leaving it soft and well nourished.
23/05/2020, By Khanyisa
Noticed after the first use that a very small amount of it goes a long way. Leaving my skin soft and smooth.
22/05/2020, By First born
Excellent glass tub
21/05/2020, By Meryl
I absolutely love this product. I mix a little bit into all my other lotions. I seriously cant live without it. Its helped with my eczema, stretch marks, sry skin and more.
Im so sad now that i can online to order another bottle, its out of stock ????
19/05/2020, By Sandesh Elaine
don't like texture
16/05/2020, By San
Very granular and messy when trying to apply even after warming it in my hands it still stays very granular. However the bit you do get on your skin makes it nice and smooth.
15/05/2020, By Barendina
Can be a bit tough to apply but very effective. Will be purchasing again!
11/05/2020, By Cherie
I liked it. Melted it in my hand and added essential oils that I wanted to massage onto my neck and shoulders. Sometimes used on my feet.
09/05/2020, By Stefanie
Keeping my hair nice
09/05/2020, By Bahle
It's very granular and has a weird texture. I will not repurchase.
08/05/2020, By B Gideon
The most terrible shea butter I have ever used. When I used it on my hair it wouldn't even melt after using the hairdryer, it left so much white residue I had to wash my hair again. I decided to use it on my face instead, but it's so grainy and scratched my skin. Worst purchase I have ever made on FTN.
07/05/2020, By Cortney
Hubby added his favourite essential oil for his own personal scent.
06/05/2020, By Kylie
I've been searching for a good quality unrefined shea butter and here it is... a great product to use as part of my skin routine
05/05/2020, By Kgabo
Non greasy highly moisturizing butter! I’m 6 months pregnant and have been using it since I found out I was pregnant and I have zero stretch marks thus far! Also use it for my natural hair and it’s softer! You get used to the smell with time!
28/04/2020, By Happy
Use it on hair
25/04/2020, By Lwethu
There's a reason why this gem sells out so quickly. Absolutely love it!!
23/04/2020, By Matilda
I love the Pure shea butter but this is even better because it's in a glass jar. Shall definitely be getting this one next time. Hope it will be in stock then...looks like it's pretty popular.
22/04/2020, By Momo
lol not the best smell but its amazing on skin
19/04/2020, By Jobel
This product has completely removed the dry, flakey skin that comes from using Retin-A. It is also the ONLY product I have EVER used (and I’ve tried a lot of products) that does not cause any irritation, itching, or burning. I absolutely LOVE this Shea butter.

Sometimes it doesn’t melt nicely but just rub a bit of the product in your hands for about 10-15 seconds before applying.

It’s also a bit oily (which you will love if you have very dry skin because it is so nourishing) so if you use make up then first pat your face gently with a tissue before applying your make up. I have also found that my make up lasts longer and I don’t get the midday shine.
04/04/2020, By Blue
Leaves skin feeling better
28/03/2020, By Leigh
For those struggling to use it because it is too solid especially in colder weather: it needs to be warmed between ones hands a few seconds in order to soften it enough to be able to apply it. And when this happens - magic.
24/03/2020, By Mash
Lovely product. The smell is tolerable and is completely overshadowed by the benefits of its use.
22/03/2020, By Sposh
The Shea butter is an amazing product, the smell; texture and feel. It gives an instant glow/radiance when applied on skin and also it makes the skin silky smooth. I love it.
20/03/2020, By Laurie
Just find it way too thick and solid to be effectively used. Gave it away.
20/03/2020, By Nels
I love it, my skin is soft and it works best for the hair and lips too.
18/03/2020, By Taryn
Love shea butter, especially this one that is raw and is without additives.
15/03/2020, By Green
Helps on dry skin

Lovely product
08/03/2020, By Shaz
Ordering for the second time. 'Working wonders for my skin and heels
04/03/2020, By Pele
Used this product on my dark stretch marks and they started fading as I kept using the Shea butter. Also works well for hair, I melt the butter, then apply it to my 4b/c hair.
04/03/2020, By Jovy
Wonderful product. You just need to learn how to prep it for whatever you plan to use it for because it is unrefined it is doesn't easily melt. For me, it was for hair and at first, I could not get it to perform the way I needed it to but I did some research into the DIY world of hair care and found out I could whip the shea butter and add other ingredients to enhance it as a moisturizer. The whipping made the butter smooth, malleable and able to instantly melt in my hands. I used a handheld whisk machine from Phillips, just fyi.
02/03/2020, By Alyx
I love this product, I use it for my face,elbows,knees etc just because it would take too long and use too much for full body coverage but I love how amazing it makes my skin feel. Highly recommend!
21/02/2020, By Eco
Not messy
13/02/2020, By esma
It has been two days i am using this product. I saw the difference on my very dry skin already. My skin is much smoother and naturally glow. I use it at night or if I am home i am too shiny though.
31/01/2020, By Organic
25/01/2020, By Joanie
Love it, makes my skin super silky soft
21/01/2020, By Reyn
Good quality. Will work wonders in body cream experiment I'm trying out. Very happy!
*just a tad bit on the pricy side in relation to other available sources, but trust FTN brand completely with regards to quality so willing to pay...
07/01/2020, By Brenda
Really did not like this product. The smell is so bad that I gave up on it very quickly so cannot comment on the quality or benefits of the product.
06/01/2020, By Cath
Lovely product! I really don't like strong smelling creams so this is great. Great nourishing product which makes my skin happy!
05/01/2020, By Chonky Raccoon
So silky soft and thick on application. Amazing that it can even be used on the face and lips. I like to press excess into my hair when I am done using it and this makes such an amazing full body moisturizer! Love using it on my feet.
19/12/2019, By Ell
I have used it on my feet almost daily and they are becoming softer.
04/12/2019, By Nhlanhla
This is a super product for my skin. Love the texture and how it is does not leave my skin greasy. My skin feels soft and looks well nourished. FTN Organic Unrefined Shea Butter...where have you been all my life :)
20/11/2019, By CATH
I gave this product 1 star initially due to the awful smell (maybe its a rancid batch?). I can only use it with the addition of lots of essential oils. BUT it is very moisturising and does work well. The initial oily feel on the skin quickly goes away and it is helping with stubborn dry skin areas.
17/11/2019, By Jacqui Weich
Lovely on my skin. No reactions or itching. I use a little bit warm it in the palm of my hand and lighthly rub into dry skin. Shea butter in general is not a perfumed oil so do not expect "perfume" smell as its an oil based product, it is not suppose to smell good and no it does not smell bad to me. It works well and I saw a difference in my skin on face and body within 2 days of use. I had very very dry skin.
12/11/2019, By vegie
It is strange to work with at first if you are not used to it. It it a bit more greasy on the skin, though once it has been absorbed it is nice.
06/11/2019, By CATH
It might be free of fragrance, but it certainly smells. Think combo of vrot milk, cat pee and old takkie. Really bad. The Soil Ugandan shea butter is much, much nicer.
06/11/2019, By Lisa
Great product! So moisturizing. I just bought 2 more as gifts for Xmas!
04/11/2019, By Fran
Very satisfied. High quality Shea Butter.
04/11/2019, By Adel
I use this on my hands and feet before bed every night, and my skin is so soft. I will even use it on my face when my skin is especially dry, and it doesn't aggravate my sensitive, acne prone, skin at all.
02/11/2019, By Rae
Great product as a daily moisturizer. Takes a while to get used to the texture but a little goes a long way.
01/11/2019, By Margaret
I absolutely love this product! I have been using it for about a year. I am almost sure it has anti-ageing benefits, because my skin is looking great!
01/11/2019, By Nkosingiphile
I bought these when you were geting 2 for the price of one, my brother had a baby a week later , the baby had horribly dry skin and we used this on him. we saw results immediately. will always keep a biottle with me.
31/10/2019, By Thobisa
I bought for my hair. Then decided to try it on my face. I have seen much of a difference in my natural hair using this product with TJCO. My hair remains dry still, which makes me disappointed. Instead it works better on my face as a moisturiser than hair

Very moisturizing

Great for skin n hair

I am so happy with this purchase (especially 2 for the price of 1!)
It has been the best moisturizer for my very dry skin. The smell and texture takes some getting use to but the result is worth it.
29/10/2019, By Nadia
What a wonderful deal! Two containers if organic shea butter for R112. And it's good quality. I use only shea butter as a facial moisturiser and this one smells earthy and nutty - I love it.
29/10/2019, By Sarah
The shea butter is amazing. I have very dry skin and nothing has helped except this.
29/10/2019, By Joleen
I have been using this product for around 2 months and it is amazing! It moistures my skin perfectly and there is ZERO irritation or burning that I often get with other moisturizers.

Great for sensitive, dry, and flaking skin. Takes a bit of time to get used to the earthy smell but definitely worth it!
28/10/2019, By Karen
Excellent quality

Have been using the organic shea butter for about 5 days now and I can definitely see the results! Skin is softer with a glow to it and it also helps with acne. I melt the shea butter in my hands by rubbing my hands together, then i apply it to where it’s needed. I definitely recommend this product to anyone! 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
23/10/2019, By Riana
Bought my first container ever, and am pleasantly surprised. Have used it in a DIY hand lotion recipe, and also straight. It really makes a difference to my hands, and the effect lasts much longer than regular hand creams. Helps to warm it (on a cold day) by holding it in my hand a few seconds, then it goes on easily. A bit greasy at first, but within about 3 minutes it is absorbed into my skin.

Too thick.

Love this product! Not the best smell, but its not the worst. As soon as i wash my face i warm some in my hands and apply to my wet face - One of the only natural ways to stop transepidermal water loss.
08/10/2019, By Sarah
This butter is so nourishing. I'm using it as stretch mark prevention for pregnancy and it's been wonderful. Hint: put some blobs where you want them and let it melt a bit with the heat of your skin. Spreads easier that way.
02/10/2019, By Astrid
I got this as a sample and I am really happy with the result. Use it for my hands and feet and I really can see improvement.
So thank you for the sample!
27/09/2019, By Julie
1st time trying it and certainly won't be the last time!
My skin is so dry that normally using coconut oil isn't moisturising enough but this is great - it feels crumbly and has a funny smell but when you put it on, it melts away and the smell isn't that strong!
17/09/2019, By Joy
Nourishing and long lasting
10/09/2019, By Elizna
Husband uses it on his (curly) hair and he is very happy with it. I struggled to find him a natural product for his hair, so happy this works so well! Lasts quite long as well.
08/09/2019, By Buhle
I absolutely love this product. When I bought it, it was meant to be just for my hair, as everyone was raving about shea butter. Look, I have dread locks, and my hairline has taken a bit of a strain thanks to the constant pulling and styling. Just a little bit on my hairline, a few massages on the roots of my hair, and my hair seems to be loving it.

I also started using it at night on my face and for my hands. My skin is looking much much smooother with less blotchiness, and it absorbs quite well to. I also use it on my hands as I seem to suffer from the hardest cuticles. After using this shea butter for at least 3 weeks, and not necessarily every day, my cuticles have softened and my hands are a bit more softer. I've actually added it as one of my favourites and will always be looking out for specials from Faithful to Nature.

I love that this is a neutral fragrance. Makes it lovely to add watever essential oils and fragrance you prefer.
05/07/2019, By Kay
This has done wonders for my dry brittle natural hair. I spritz water and apply. Makes my hair crazy soft.
04/07/2019, By Mia
Raw gold. Perfect for whipped body butter. Great for beauty diy. Strong natural scent.
02/07/2019, By Petra
This excellent shea butter has worked wonder on my dry skin. I add it to my homemade body butter which includes essential oils and that completely masks the smell. Love that it comes in glass.
27/06/2019, By Mel
Nice product, the smell takes some getting use to but I love that it's in glass and unrefined
27/06/2019, By Naledi
I love to do my own cosmetics with Essential Oils and am exited to have quick access to what I need
24/06/2019, By Helga
Amazing product
13/06/2019, By Leah
Love using it in body butters
13/06/2019, By Bianca
Use it for everything need to buy this in bulk
12/06/2019, By Ray
It works nicely as a moisturiser, or as a base for your home-made products. Do note, though, that it has a strong natural smell, but I didn't really find it to be a problem once it's on the skin.
05/06/2019, By Lebo
This is a rich and well nourishing butter, my hair and skin love it.
04/06/2019, By Lara
I have used this shea butter on my hair and body, I found that this didn't work for my face as it was too oily. It has a very nutty/natural smell which I don't mind, but my boyfriend didn't seem too fond of. The texture is "creamy" and can feel a bit oily if you use too much, but it is really wonderfully "creamy" and thick. Leaves you super soft!
02/06/2019, By Maydene
My skin simply adores Shea butter. It’s nice and thick and works really well with my dry skin
31/05/2019, By Bianca
I love this , I use it for everything my hair, body and skin. Very happy with the product
27/05/2019, By Heidi
My second order of this product. Using it to make my own face cream and body butter. My skin has never looked better. Great for hair too.
22/05/2019, By Nas
This is a huuuuge jar and a little goes a long way. As with any real butter, you have to really warm it up before applying. It leaves my skin feeling soft, hydrated and protected and I generally suffer with extremely dry skin.
21/05/2019, By Bee
Great value for money.
The smallest bit goes a very long way.
Does have a bit of a odd smell but nothing worth loosing a star over.
Works really well and the packaging is amazing.
18/05/2019, By Sotho Snow
I love this product. I buy it all the time. It feels good to know that is truly natural and great that the packaging is more sustainable than the other previous options. My ashy winter legs are now a distant memory thanks to this product and my feet feel very close to baby soft. I use it from head to toe! My hair loves this stuff and I always mix it in with baobab oil and Jamaican castor oil. I could talk for days about how much I love this product!
20/04/2019, By Bettina
Good, simple moisturizer. Quite hard and crumbly when at room temperature and so not easy to apply. Works bedt when heated up shortly under i.e. bathroom heater
12/04/2019, By Lexi
I’ve searched for years for something to sink into my skin... This is the best skin moisturizer I’ve ever had
10/04/2019, By Lady
Great all rounder! Just wish the jar was bigger I use it on my hair and skin as well as on my children’s hair.
10/04/2019, By Cheryl
Really lovely!
09/04/2019, By Ntaoleng
My partner loves it , he has dry feet and it seems to be working for him .
07/04/2019, By Lorraine
A fantastic option for dry winter skin! Warm it up in your hands a bit and then rub in all the deliciousness for your skin to soak up! Don't forget to warm it up in your hands though! Proper moisturizing benefits!
25/03/2019, By rashida
excellent for dry skin and eczema
20/03/2019, By DEBRA
It's my second lot and I'll definitly use it again. Great mosturiser and softener for hair, heels, knees and elbows. Mix in castor oil and favourite essential oils and it's a good all-rounder.
19/03/2019, By Susie
Recommend for dry skin problems.
18/03/2019, By Penny-Jane
Definitely the best shea butter I have used, and love the beautiful glass bottle packaging.
08/03/2019, By Dembe
Great pruduct. I use it on my hair and face abd as acne treatment. it moisturises my hair and ive been glowing since i started using it, hahahh.
01/03/2019, By Malieka
Really amazing! Highly recommend
22/02/2019, By Isabel
It smells divine and makes my skin look beautiful, but I find it a little grainy and oily (once it is on the skin). I have definitely noticed an improvement in the quality and growth of my nails.
11/02/2019, By Bee
Absolutely love this product! I use it daily as a hand cream, lip moisturizer...I have even used it on my hair! Would totally recommend it.
06/02/2019, By Jacqueline
Great Shea Butter for a good price.
01/02/2019, By AJreloaded
Its great skin care
22/01/2019, By Heidi
My first time using shea butter. I used it with other oils and products to make my own body butter.
Will order again when i need to make another batch.
03/01/2019, By Sian
High-quality stuff! Really impressed with it.
31/12/2018, By CRS
I'm almost finished with my first jar and will order again. It has a very earthy/nutty smell but I've fallen in love with it, and although it is a bit oily (first warm it between hands before application) it still feels light on the skin and soaks in nicely after a while. I use this mainly at night when I go to bed on hands and feet. Every now and then I also apply to my face for a bit of a treat (...only when I'm home for the day as it does make skin shine), and also after I cleaned the house or worked in the garden and my hands need a bit of a moisture boost. I have seen a major improvement in the condition of my nails - they used to be very weak but now they grow well and are much stronger. In general my hands look amazing!
27/12/2018, By RUZANNE
I have used sheabutter for a long time, this one however has got to be my favorite! It moisturizes my daughter's skin beautifully as well, as she is prone to dry eczema patches on her arms.
I use it from head to toe on myself and have fallen in love with it.
23/12/2018, By Sharifa
I've seen so many comments regarding the scent of this shea butter, but my jar has a pleasant very light scent, actually reminds me of cacoa butter with a very light scent. Enjoying using it to make my own beauty products.
08/12/2018, By Lynn
I am a great fan of shea butter & have used various ones for years. I thought I would try this one. I followed instructions carefully, but this product will not soften. It is impossible to spread over the skin, in fact it just crumbled like sand
08/12/2018, By Anri
It’s the first time I am trying raw shea butter and its lovely!
04/12/2018, By Tracy
Shea Butter is literally a gift from mother nature herself. I have sensitive skin but have found it to be my go to balm for top to toe pampering. Works like a charm to stop chafing when I run and combined with coconut oil and hemp seed oil I make my own blend of daily moisturiser that I use all over my body and on my face too. Love it!
04/12/2018, By Evlyn
Loving this for the dry skin on my elbows and feet.
04/12/2018, By Celest
I bought the product for diy products like beard balm for my husband and face moisturizer for myself. Love it so much I use it, just as it is, for a lip balm as well. Great product. Smell doesn't bother me at all, just a natural, good for you, light earthy type of smell. Also super moisturizing and glossy when used as a lip balm. Love it and will keep buying.
03/12/2018, By Nelly
Great moisturizer for especially dry skin. Though this has a significantly strong smoky smell. I always mix it with coconut oil and essential oils to mask the scent a bit.
28/11/2018, By Twi
Smells a little strange but you get used to it and it does go away after being applied. LOVE it for my nighttime face routine and have visibly noticed an improvement in acne breakouts, scaring and skin texture.
26/11/2018, By ZakhoLina
I honestly expected it to smell bad based on the other reviews, but it seems good to me. I mix it with coconut oil to moisturise my body, works perfectly fine
23/11/2018, By Neo
I would have given it 5/5 if it wasn't for the's not very pleasant. However, it gets the job done! And a little goes a loooong way. Leaves my skin and hair feeling softer and well moisturized. Will definately be purchasing again.
22/11/2018, By Nthabiseng
It's a great facial moisturizer. It leaves the skin feeling sooth and supple. I do advise using it with oils if you have extra dry skin as the glow and moisture don't last that long. It's also great as a lip moisturizer and hair conditioner. I love how it easily melts in my palms. The smell is not so great but I don't mind it and got used to it. If you can't deal, add essential oils, they mask smell and give the butter creamy consistency.
18/11/2018, By Brenda
This was gifted to me and I wanted to love this shea butter as I'm a big fan of FTN. But this Shea is rancid! Shea butter should smell smokey a bit but there is a revolting sour smell which is a sign of rancidity. Also a bit of debris at the bottom of my jar. I unfortunately won't buy this.
13/11/2018, By Lerato
Initially I was looking for Shea Butter to use for my hair, being a naturalista.
However upon reading further on the product's benefits, it was outlined that it's a great immolient for skin, so I decided to apply it on from head to toe.
Being a person diagnosed with chronic atopic dermatitis for an early age and being on cortisone steroid creams for basically all my life, I absolutely found this product to have an excellent efficacy for my condition.
My skin has NEVER looked so radiant! I would definitely recommend it to anyone who has an eczema problem and the fact that it's organic means it can be used on little ones too.

The scent might be an issue for some but if you've grown up with skin problems it shouldn't be a factor as the benefits of this product outweigh such a small detail.
03/11/2018, By Natassia
First time I use shea butter cannot compare it. I was suprised by the smell when I received it as I imagined it would have a buttery vanilla type smell to it..just shows how processed some products are that says it contains shea butter. After I received my shea butter I ordered some sweet almond oil and jojoba oil and I made my own body whip by using the shea butter, almond and jojoba oils, virgin coconut oil and essential oils..and its yum and so good for my skin. I even apply it under my arms after I shower as I easily get a rash even though I use only natural deodorant. The shea butter really soothes my skin.
02/11/2018, By Margaret
I little of this goes a long way. I have been using the Shea Butter every night on my hands and my hands looks younger! It definitely has anti-ageing properties on top of its moisturising benefits.
31/10/2018, By Millicent
Its a great product, feels soft on my skin. doesn't smell that awesome, but very good for essential oils.
26/10/2018, By anonymous
I agree it doesn't smell all that grand. But it's not the worst. And it's very versatile so you can add any essential oils to it that you after and prefer the smell of to make it smell the way you want.
26/10/2018, By Nadia
I like this for adding my own essential oils to it.
25/10/2018, By Pia
Not really my favourite... it's very unrefined and natural, which is great, but the smell is a bit off-putting, and I don't love the texture - which is full of chunky bits that take a while to melt on your body. It's definitely very good for dry skin, and I'll use it all up, but I don't think that I'd order it again.
23/10/2018, By Nadia
It works well. It's organic... The smell just confirms that it's natural. And no artificial scents has been added
23/10/2018, By Getruida
Faithful to Nature unrefined shea butter has caused me to have an allergic reaction ( red sore itchy bumps ). I applied it over sun burn on my shoulder and it has caused me to have a painful allergic reaction. When I applied the Isivuno shea butter over sun burn in the past, it healed it. This shea butter has caused it to worsen and has caused a allergic reaction which is very painful.
23/10/2018, By Janice
Great stuff to use on really just about anything. Sometimes a little hard when cold, but you only need a little to go a long way.
21/10/2018, By CVdberg
The smell takes some getting used to, other than that it is really effective and moisturising.
20/10/2018, By Pearlene
It smells very smokey but I actually like the smell. The shea butter is very thick and absorbs into the skin quickly. Good quality shea butter. Well done faithful to nature. This is great if you don't want to order shea butter in bulk.
So moisturizing and heavenly. Loving my shea butter.
19/10/2018, By Getruida
The shea butter has a very strong smokey smell which isn't a big deal. It doesn't bother me. It isn't as thick as the Isivuno brand but I am willing to give it a chance and I'm looking forward to seeing good results. All in all well done faithful to nature.
18/10/2018, By Warren
Such a great product! First time using Shea Butter, do not really like chemical based stuff. Use it after surfing it moisturises my skin great. It is fragrance free, but I like the natural Shea smell. Well Done guys!
17/10/2018, By Cam
It smells "off" to me? Not sure I am going to be able to use this as I would hate to smell how it smells?! I do feel "fragrance free" may be misleading- while I am sure no fragrance has been added, this product has a strong, highly off-putting, putrid aroma!
16/10/2018, By ann
Very hydrating and moisturizing, its an excellent quality shea butter, however i dont like the scent
16/10/2018, By Lehana
The smell is quite strong and unpleasant, but goes away after a while. It will take some getting use to.
