In a heat-resistant jar, put two parts shea butter, one part coconut oil and one part organic olive oil. Immerse the jar in a pot half-filled with hot water and keep it on a burner on very slow heat, stirring with a clean fork until homogenized. Pour it warm into cosmetic jar or any other small glass jars and store them in the fridge until it gets solid. Keep one jar in the bathroom to use it as an excellent moisturizer/emollient/makeup remover. I also keep one jar next to the kitchen sink to moisturize my hands after I do the dishes.

I have bought Now shea butter before and loved it. This batch was gritty and liquidy. I put it in the fridge to solidify it, but didn't help much. I am still using it but the consistency is like cream of wheat. Even after being on my face for 30 minutes the crystals are still there. I have had better batches.

Doesn't stink!

Pros

  • Doesn't Have The Typical Smell
  • Soft

Cons

  • Too Thick For Summer Use

Best Uses

  • After shower

Comments about NOW Solutions Shea Butter 100% Natural, 7 fl oz:

Great for dry winter skin. After much experimentation I've found the best way to use this is to melt and mix with Now Solutions cocoa butter and rub into skin while still wet from the shower.

    Comments about NOW Solutions Shea Butter 100% Natural, 7 fl oz:

    I mix this with cocoa butter, coconut oil, safflower oil and jojoba oil for a nightime moisturizer. Amazingly, it doesn't grease up my pillow. It's a bit gritty on it's own but the heat from your face takes care of that.

        Comments about NOW Solutions Shea Butter 100% Natural, 7 fl oz:

        This is a great, plain shea butter product. I know of places that offer it for a couple dollars less, but when they run out, I purchase it from Drugstore. It is extraordinarily moisturizing, and it has no added fragrance that will irritate my sensitive, dry skin. Shea butter, by nature, is very hard at room temperature. But it isn't difficult to scrape out a chunk and let it warm in my hands, and then it spreads relatively well. It works fabulous on the ends of my hair, and it doesn't weigh it down (I have very fine hair). The benefits this has for the skin and hair far outweigh the difficulty of removing this product from the jar :)

          This is the best stuff EVER! I buy several jars at a time as I never want to run out! I am a nurse and I am constantly washing my hands. This has taken my alligator skin and made it a thing of the past! My cuticles no longer rip and my hands and nails look great! This is also perfect for dry feet, rough elbows, etc...
          Buy it for yourself or as a thoughtful gift for a new mom, a nurse, teacher or secretary! Just make sure you buy one for yourself

              Comments about NOW Solutions Shea Butter 100% Natural, 7 fl oz:

              Based on prior reviews, I bought this 100% shea butter "paste." It appears that I must be the only one (to date) who finds this product to have several drawbacks: leaves skin with a wax-like feel when applied; dry/cake-like when in jar; a bit awkward to apply, over-priced for the amount one gets, possesses no discernible scent, and has questionably "all natural" composition (do read its label!). I will dispose of this somewhat costly small jar and return to using Cantu Shea Butter Body Butter-- which has none of the deficiencies I have cited in this unavoidably uncomplimentary review.

                  Use immediatly after a shower or bath and it is so nice and good to your skin. Use while hair is wet and it is really good (it takes a while to settle in but worth it)African-American hair BTW.
