Shea butter is a pure natural moisturiser, made from the nut of the shea (karite) tree. Here’s a look at how shea butter keeps your skin healthy from head to toe:
- Soothes, hydrates and balances your skin.
- Great for dry skin, dry scalp, chapped lips and cracked heels, elbows and knees.
- Soothes the symptoms of eczema and psoriasis.
- Natural anti-inflammatory that helps to heal scrapes, cuts and minor burns.
- Relieves sunburn, rashes and insect bites.
- Has potent anti-ageing powers, as it’s full of essential fatty acids, and high in vitamins A and E.
- Keeps skin supple and elastic and stimulates collagen production.
- Suitable for sensitive skin.
Pure Simple Shea Butter contains no artificial additives, preservatives, cosmetic fragrances, synthetic surfactants, mineral oils or petroleum-based ingredients.
Please Note: Shea butter is solid at room temperature, but melts when it comes into contact with your skin.
Not suitable for those with allergies to nuts or latex.

36 out of 37 people would recommend this product03/03/2019, By AnnetteI mixed this with a few of my leftover lotions and it is very nourishing. It takes a while to soak into the skin but you don't need to use too much. It's great except for the plastic packaging. I hoped it would be a glass jar.28/01/2019, By MicaelaSearched for Shea butter for a long time and I'm glad I've chosen this one!27/11/2018, By Vickimy skin is never dry anymore!20/11/2018, By BiancaI used this to make a body butter for my psoriasis and it blended perfectly.09/10/2018, By ZukiswaI bought this for my sister's dry skin, I ended up using it myself too on my chafed feet. It's very good16/05/2018, By ZeldaThis product has banished my dry, cracked heels without causing any irritation.01/05/2018, By LucindaLove this product! Use it for my skin at night and when I wake up my skin is soft and no tightness at all.03/04/2018, By KGI love the product , its for so good for my sensitive dry skin.27/02/2018, By NickReceived a little sample of this and after using it I was hooked and ordered a whole tub. I like that it has no smell.24/02/2018, By MoSo easy to use! I used this as a moisturiser on its own and then started getting creative. Wow, it makes such a great addition to home made lip balm! A little goes such along way, and it is firm at room temperature (so my lip balms ended up looking like lipsticks), I used beetroot powder to tint them (and add nutrition) and think this is such a great product that it will now be a mainstay in my 'make it yourself' stock cupboard. FTN has changed my shopping habits and my life by stocking such a comprehensive list of all natural and organic products!08/02/2018, By TarynI received this as a sample, I've never used shea butter before but it's great, will definitely be purchasing it in the future. Used it on my face and body before bed and my skin felt great in the morning.31/12/2017, By SamThick and nourishing15/12/2017, By KyleEasy to work with as you just take a small amount and warm it up in your palms. Great results!04/12/2017, By RoseI do like this product but the consistency seems to vary from pot to pot. On one occasion it is softer and easier to apply; on another, the product is hard. Obviously, I prefer the former.20/11/2017, By CorinneToo heavy for my skin22/09/2017, By ArddyI love the richness of this product and have got used to the butter consistency.20/09/2017, By StephanieSmells better than other similar products - will mix it with a drop of my essential oils and try that. Very moisturising!11/09/2017, By ShanShea butter loses a lot of its benefits through refining process although it becomes smoother. A little grit won't hurt. Still safe and great product though.03/09/2017, By HHI mixed mine with a few drops of essentisl oils and that is my moisturizer sorted31/08/2017, By AnelIt works GREAT for dry skin, but I am not COMPLETELY fond of the smell. I know it is natural, but added a couple of drops of essential oil to make it smell nice for me.26/08/2017, By mbaliI did not like the texture , I expected an unrefined product and I got something else , I am using it but not happy
The brand I usually buy was out of stock and I decided to try this was disappointed07/08/2017, By jiah0911This shea butter has many uses, and is very moisturing to your skin.24/07/2017, By AngeeBe warned especially in Winter this is a very firm butter, so warm it in your hands first. But worth it, this stuff is gorgeous and silky and moisturising.09/06/2017, By LarisaThis is the best shea butter product I've tried - smooth, silky and makes my skin so soft. Doesn't smell as strong as the other brands.08/03/2017, By PumlaAbsolutely love this product, my skin feels smoother and looks healthier. I usually use all over my body, since its unscented I think its all good for the face.23/01/2017, By DaniGIve been using this shea butter when I make my own natural deodorant and it does the job perfectly, my only concern is that I can buy it in larger quantities, which I would love to do! Maybe PureSimple could start offering bulk sizes..? :)02/08/2016, By AnnelizeLong lasting moisture, easy to melt, love that its fragrance free!22/06/2016, By ZamaI have been using this product for the past 2 weeks now and i have no complaints, i love how it feels on my skin especially during this winter season!09/12/2015, By NtswakiThis is great for my skin and hair. I like the fact that it is odourless (non funny strong scent), its even better to use in this warm season as the butter isn so hard.23/07/2015, By NiciDuring winter its a bit hard, but I just scoop some out with my nail and warm it in my hands. Works great! I mix mine with some coconut oil and the shea butter really seals in the moisture. Plus it has no smell which is nice.16/07/2015, By KateI used to suffer from dry itchy skin and cracked, chapped hands in winter. This product has dealt with those problems fantastically, and I even use it on my face now. It is great and quite economical, as a little goes a long way.08/01/2015, By TammyThis shea butter is perfect, super moisturising, blends beautifully with natural aqueous cream and essential oils and coconut oil. Very versatile and does not have the slight latex smell of other shea butters. It is solid so I scoop it out with the back of my nail and warm it in my hands for proper aplication. It leaves my skin feeling super healthy and glowing! Great!06/09/2014, By CoemarGood for eczema but it doesn absorb fully so it gets worn away by clothes halfway through the day21/07/2014, By Melanie-annIve been hearing all kinds of things about Shea Butter for curly hair and decided to try it out for myself. All I can say is that the results were stunning!
Its not in itself a moisturiser but rather a sealant for other conditioners so you need to use it in conjunction with say, Coconut or Grape Seed oil. I whipped it up with a tablespoon of Coconut oil and a tablespoon of Sweet Almont oil. The results are fabulous. Its also great on your skin and for cracked heels. Has just become my HG of hair masques.13/05/2014, By ChanellI love this product! For me, its better than the Soil Kenyan shea butter. Will become a staple in my beauty cabinet for sure!08/03/2011, By AnelI'm really enjoying this shea butter. It's a great moisturiser for my preggy belly and even as a hair masque. It requires a bit of work to go from solid to liquid though. To that end I dispense it into a glass that is standing in hot water, a bit like you do with coconut oil.
