15/10/2020, By Anza
Shea butter is awesome, who can deny. But to get this much shea butter at this price is awesome. I mix it up with my favourite essential oils because the smell takes some getting used to. I hope you'll restock it soon because I'll definitely buy it again.
14/10/2020, By Hlengiwe
Absolutely love how soft and moisturized this butter makes my skin and hair feel. Not the best smell but nothing a few drops of your favorite essential oil can’t mask.
14/10/2020, By Kealeboga
I love it, my skin loves it aswell as my hair,also using it on my daughter who has extremely dry skin and sensitive skin, so far she is glowing
13/10/2020, By FiercePatty
I use this Shea butter for my face and body. A little goes a long way plus the tub is big enough to last a LONG time.
My skin is brighter now, soft and well nourished. I love this butter!!
12/10/2020, By Nicola
Such a good price, and the smell isn't nearly as bad as I was expecting.

30/09/2020, By Thandi
It leaves my hair & skin soft, hubby also uses it on his hair. The only challenge sometimes is the lumps. When its cold its hard to smoothen them up. Overall i love it and its good value for money.
29/09/2020, By Tee
Great value for money! My skin feels so moisturised after applying it. I also apply it on my hands and elbows regularly.

My daughter had pimples and bacne and ever since she used the Shea butter her skin is glowing . Within three days if using it her skin was beautiful . I use this Shea butter once a week for my hair and it's amazingly good . Shea butter as shaving cream work like magic .
26/09/2020, By sinalo
its really good, but u need to get used to the smell
25/09/2020, By MaNgcobo
Firstly, value for money. Love the fact that it’s raw and not tampered with like other brands I’ve bought. The smell is something that takes getting used to especially if you’re newly exploring Shea butter. Very moisturizing, helps with my acne, uneven body tone and stretch marks (not overnight tho, stay consistent) . Definitely a 9/10 from me ...
25/09/2020, By Sandra
Love this Shea butter and it's such a saving at this price for this much!
24/09/2020, By Flowergirl
Value for money. It's so moisturizing.
20/09/2020, By K
This shea butter is the business! High quality, fresh, smells a bit like cocoa, super moisturising.
14/09/2020, By Leigh
The tub is huuge and best value I have seen, its clear its great quality by the texture, colour and smell.
My order arrived in 1 day and I am sure this will last me for a year, I look forward to treating my skin.very impressed
11/09/2020, By Eve
Good product and good value for money. I mix this with my essential oils and my skin is loving it.
10/09/2020, By Reinette
Awesome product and if you do not like the nutty smell, you can mix some of Mies body oil in to the body butter
09/09/2020, By S Pillay
Fantastic product that is easily absorbed into skin. I make a vegan butter cream with it ! highly recommend and well prices too.
09/09/2020, By Zekhethelo
I love the unrefined Shea Butter, I use it in both my hair care and skin care routines and it works wonders!

27/08/2020, By Healthy Bean
Great product and great price for the amount you get! A very earthy smell as it is so natural which can only be a good sign. Love using this shea butter to make my own skin care products.
27/08/2020, By @miss_mkhize_
I love this product.It is good on my type 4 hair.I use it all over my body,the product is good for sensitive skin.highly recommend
26/08/2020, By Nicole
Fantastic product. I use it all over my body as a substitute to body cream. Not only does it work out cheaper, but the hydration on the skin lasts almost the whole day. I store some in a glass container that i heat up, otherwise it hardens and you cant use it. Strong smell, but you get used to it and i dont mind it, i have read that you can add essential oils if youd like. Also helps to keep my eczema at bay. Love that it is also organic etc.

24/08/2020, By Funeka

A great and lucky find. I wish it was always readily available in stock.
22/08/2020, By Neli
My hair and skin are feeling good and repairing well from dryness
21/08/2020, By Lerato
This was my first ordering and using Shea butter. Needless to say, my skin and hair are loving it. Whipped some with a mixture of oils for use in my hair and using another mixture with apricot kernel oil for my face. Skin and hair are happy. Still a lot left so it will be a while before I need to repurchase

20/08/2020, By noluntu
I love this product. I decant it in three ways. In a old vaseline container for my lips, in a reused tub for my body and then I make a butter for my hair with it.
20/08/2020, By Dawn
A beautiful, smooth and very natural shea butter. It works exceptionally well on its own or melt it down and mix with olive oil (and some gorgeous essential oils) for a more spreadable option.
20/08/2020, By Jabhile
It’s great on my sensitive skin
19/08/2020, By Ntsibi
Great for hair and facial use. Keeps them moisturized and soft
18/08/2020, By Tish
This is a great moisturiser!! I love it and it leaves my skin feeling great.
18/08/2020, By Anika
By far the best shea butter i have used, massive tub!! Definitely recommend it.
15/08/2020, By Silinga
I use it for my body and hair. My sensitive skin it so much it and a good price compared to other eczema creams l have been using. I will keep buying this shea butter
14/08/2020, By Lerato
First of all it's really huge, I think it might last me the rest of the year. Plus it makes my skin soft.
13/08/2020, By Amish
Amazing product. Good quality Shea Butter, would highly recommend it to others.
12/08/2020, By Olebogeng
This tub is big. And absolutely love it. I use it for my whipped body butter and hair mouse. Love it
12/08/2020, By Tillie
I received my tub yesterday- it's HUGE, and since you only need a very small amount rubbed between your hands and applied to your face or body, I don't know if I'll be able to use it all up, lol. I have flaky, eczema skin, and last night after cleansing I messaged my face with the shea butter. This morning my skin felt soft like a baby's, as if it just soaked up the shea butter! I'm so impressed and have used it this morning as well. Usually by lunch time, my skin starts feeling dry again, but so far is still feels moisturized. This is truly a wonder product, and such value for money- can't recommend it enough!
11/08/2020, By Mrs B
This is the 2nd time ordering Shea butter. My skin feels soft and hydrated especially during the cold dry winter months. Rub it in your palms for a couple seconds, it melts easily and then apply it to your body. Its best for the body and may cause pimples when applied to the face.
11/08/2020, By Armin
Best buy
10/08/2020, By SV
Very earthy smell but im not bothered by it at all. My skin drinks it up and the moisture lasts long. Really happy, making my own body butters.
10/08/2020, By Khatija
I have used different Shea butters in the past and it really is a game changer. First time using this one and I love it bc it’s unrefined. Kind of grainy but melts down completely. Used on my face, body and hair. Great moisturizer and helps with pigmentation. Plus, you get a large amount for the same price that you would get a 250ml tub.
06/08/2020, By Alida
Best natural skin moisturizer. Ideal to mix with beeswax and essential oils for homemade body lotions.
06/08/2020, By Greenie
06/08/2020, By Hannelie
My skin feels well hydrated, all day long. So happy i found this. A bit difficult to apply, but so worth it
05/08/2020, By Roch
This product is amazing, the big tub is definitely worth the price. I mixed mine with some Olive Oil and Tea tree oil just to make it easier to apply. If you are new to Shea butter it is something to get used to, it is not your normal cream, but so worth it, moisturises and protects your skin.
05/08/2020, By Bayanda
Didn't take long to get the product & when I did it didn't disappoint
30/07/2020, By Thando
Finally there's stock!???? My sister and I have been looking for months. We got our tubs few days ago. I'm not fond of the smell, but I love the consistency when I've put it on my skin. My skin is so soft!!!
27/07/2020, By Cher
I absolutely love this product. It has been amazing for my very dry, eczema skin. I mix it with other oils to make it easier to apply.
This is also great value for money. I love the fact that it is unrefined, raw and that it supplies job opportunities to local women in Africa. Hopefully the plastic container can be replaced with something else in the near future...
24/07/2020, By Monica Gonzalez
Beautiful, I can make my own creams with it. Excellent moisturaiser for dry months.
22/07/2020, By KOLI
it was my first time using this product. ..mixed it with other oils (jojoba, sweet almonds, etc) and my hair loves it... my scalp doesn't itch anymore, didn't know that shea butter is also good for scalp..

21/07/2020, By Tabisa
This is such value for money. I heat mine and add oils ( castor oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil) Its great for my hair. I use the unrefined one on my face
21/07/2020, By Fawziah
Most amazing thing I've done for my skin and hair. So easily absorbed, non greasy and luxurious feeling using this shea butter on my skin. Will definitely be purchasing this again.
16/07/2020, By Lucia
Superb value for money. I could not find Shea butter of this quality any where else ! Its no wonder it sells out so quickly ! I love the smell - reminiscent of milk chocolate ! It is a little bit grainy, hence the 4 stars, and not 5...but it disolves almost immediately in warm hands or when you mix it with other products like beeswax or cocoa butter.
15/07/2020, By Mish
This tube will probably last me for another 6months. I use it everyday on my entire body including my hair. I’m enjoying so much as it leaves my skin feeling hydrated. Improved the texture of my skin and seen improvement with scarring
09/07/2020, By Coni
I have been using Shea butter for many years as a skin moisturizer and in my hair (mixed with some oils). This tub is great value for money. Great product.

20/06/2020, By marika
Amazing product, one of nature's anti aging products. Shea butter is hard to find. Big tub great price and value. Good to use as a moisturizer for hair and face. Mix with your conditioner and use as a deep conditioning treatment.
13/06/2020, By Tarryn
Shea butter is hard to find so getting it in such great quantity was a bonus for me. It's worth the price.
28/05/2020, By Yasmin
Amazing quality, very pleased. Can wait to stock up more!!!
24/05/2020, By Getruida
Really, really amazing Shea butter. I use it on its own as a facial moisturizer. It's affordable and it works so well. Great for winter dry skin.
23/05/2020, By L
I find the scent extremely overpowering. I can't use it without feeling nauseated.
22/05/2020, By Flora

25/04/2020, By Nale
Great quality and value for money and a price that’s hard to come by. I use it from top to toe and my skin and hair can’t thank me enough.
24/04/2020, By Lillian
It's my first time purchasing the product, I will give the feedback of the outcomes since I'm using it for the hair and skin.

Love This Shea Butter. I Added A Few Oils To It And Whipped It Up To Make A Hair Butter. Keeps My Natural Hair Moisturized And Seals In The Moisture. Definitely Value For Money. Would Highly Recommend To All Type 4 Naturals
09/04/2020, By Kris
Love this product and I would highly reccomend it! It does have a strong earthy smell and can be difficult to blend if the product is cold, but it is definitely worth it. Highly reccomend for eczema, sensitive skin and acne prone skin.
23/02/2020, By Mai Atipa
Great and affordable product! My baby has eczema and ever since I started using a combination of this Shea butter and coconut oil, her skin is SO smooth and she hasn’t had a flare up since. I also use it for her hair, mixed with coconut, olive and castor oils... the 1kg tub also lasts for a long time. Bought it last year April, and it is only just about to finish. It’s unfortunate that it’s been out of stock for the past few months :(. When I got a notification that it was available, it was already out of stock when I came online.
21/02/2020, By Puseletso
I like it but I would love it if it were finer.
12/02/2020, By Getruida
Really good Shea butter. Very smooth and creamy. Smells like proper Shea butter and isn't at all "smelly" like other Shea butter brands. This Shea butter is affordable and super quality. Loving it.
08/02/2020, By Charlene
Made a face cream with the Shea Butter and other ingredients it's nice and creamy just glad I added Young Living oils to the mix as not a lover of the smell of the Shea Butter.
14/12/2019, By Dina
The Shea butter is great and is affordable. Great to use as is and to make your own body butter or whipped body cream.
07/12/2019, By Chris
Great additive for home made butters and creams
28/11/2019, By Danny
So good on skin keeps me moist and shiny also use it for my Afro hair great product had cracked heels now it’s so smooth within a period of 10 days
27/11/2019, By Karen
Brilliant product. But most of the time out of stock. Need to find other suppliers. Must keep it in stock in sufficient quantities.
No point in giving a brilliant review when most of the time, no one can buy it.
22/11/2019, By Leandra
So nourishing and soothe your skin.
21/11/2019, By Nora
Bought this back when it was a lot cheaper and what bang for your buck! I've made countless batches of home made whipped shea butter lotions and it's been amazing. Love this product, price is much higher but for a kilo it's still pretty good, specially once you whip it, it makes more.
11/11/2019, By Yolande
Lovely product and the price is very reasonable.
03/11/2019, By Chulumanco
I absolutely love it! My skin feels so soft! It is amazing on my afro!
02/11/2019, By Tholeka
Great value for money. This product is such a steal. Shea butter is luxuriously moisturizing for my skin and is a great sealant for my naturally dry afro.
02/11/2019, By El
A bucket filled with Nourishing Goodness and a little goes a long way.
26/10/2019, By erin
I'm very happy with quality and quantity of this product. Would definitely buy it again!
21/10/2019, By Amo
I'm never going to buy body lotions because of the Shea butter. A little goes a long way and I use on my face, body and hair. I have acne prone skin and it hasn't cause any breakouts instead its leaving my skin moisturized and GLOWING. I'm forever going to come back for it, it has changed my life
11/10/2019, By Kholofelo
My hairline is growing back, richer and healthier I am loving it
02/10/2019, By Shiks
Absolutely loving it! A little goes such a long way! Excellent price and quality.
27/09/2019, By Jesica
We love this product so much in our household. The quality is exceptional and offers great value for money.
19/08/2019, By Nolwazi
Exceptional service, I love my Shea butter! It’s a pity the price has more than quadrupled, would’ve ordered more.
18/08/2019, By Phumeza
I like and my skin loves it so much though I bought it for my hair, I haven't used it on them as yet.And also it is sure Unrefined.
17/08/2019, By TIMO
Really enjoyed using this. It comes at a great price and super easy to use. I just melt some down and mix in caramel essence to give it a rocking smell. I feel its good for my skin and lasts so much longer than regular over the counter lotions that contain stuff I no longer want to use or support the ethics behind it.
12/08/2019, By B
Such great value for money! Hope it remains at this great price. My skin loves the butter. The natural fragrance is quite strong but not unpleasant. Adding essential oils definitely masks the natural fragrance but I really don't mind using it as is.
10/08/2019, By Jaxx
I was surprised how good this product is at such an affordable price. It's so nourishing!
07/08/2019, By Karlien
Fantastic price for a fantastic product! I use this with essential oils as a night cream and my face feels amazing the next day, it is the only product that helps my skin not break out.

01/08/2019, By Pheli
Great product I use it for my hair and body. My hair is strong and healthy because of the Shea Butter. Good Value for money.
15/07/2019, By Candice
This is a good quality butter. I must say for the price compared to others I've bought before this is by far value for money. It's easy to work with and my hair loves it.
09/07/2019, By Claudia
Great value
07/07/2019, By Kaminee
Really great price for a 1kg, found it to be alot more rough & crumbly and has a stronger natural smell than another unrefined brand I was using before buying this. Popped a little bit into a smaller container and mixed it well with a spatula under a hairdryer. Now its smooth and easy to apply. Easy peasy. A few drops of essential oils should help with the smell.
06/07/2019, By Revonia
Leaves my skin glow I just love this product
03/07/2019, By CB
Amazing size, amazing price. Bought this for my natural hair - and whipping it up with my favourite essential oils has been so much fun. I won't have to worry about running out of shea butter for a good while.
02/07/2019, By Jane
I love having a product I use safely on my skin.
27/06/2019, By Dominique
This shea butter heavenly. The price is amazing too.
23/06/2019, By Tshemollogo
I love this shea butter, it is so organic and raw, does not have any additives and it is great for almost any use. I mainly use it to moisturize my face. The price is really good value for 1kg of shea butter
10/06/2019, By Robyn
Best bang for your buck with this product! Really great, thanks!
29/05/2019, By Rulize
Very happy with this product! Makes my skin feeling so soft! Love it!
19/05/2019, By Ingrid
FTN has the best price on this product!
09/05/2019, By Lerato
By far the most reasonably priced. Great value for money and great for softening my extremely dry 4c hair.
06/05/2019, By Catherine
This shea butter heavenly. Because it is raw you can do so much more with it, I'm over the moon that FTN sells is. The price is amazing too.
30/04/2019, By Marelize
Firstly, the price on this is insane. It's a great product to have as you can use it for both hair and body, plus you can use it for diy body creams and such. It's very rich and raw, without any artificial fragrances. I highly recommend.
