Discover Shea Butter

A daily moisturizer & DIY star made simple.

Many of us now realize how important it is to feel good about products that help us look good. But if you’re new to the natural scene, it can be hard to get the straight goods on plant-based items, like shea butter (Will it work? What does it smell like?). If you’ve been using them for a while, it can still be tough to know which to go with (Will it be hard to spread?). We want to make it simple. Our certified organic Shea Butter is 100% pure — or “raw and unrefined” for shea buffs. Unlike others, it’s soft and easy to put on right out of the jar. Plus, it’s been shown to contain essential vitamins and fatty acids that give dry skin serious care. With its subtle scent and spreadability, it’s great for DIY lotions, lip balms and more — all they’ll contain are natural ingredients, and your creativity.

Product Features:

  • Certified organic, unrefined, cold-pressed Shea Butter
  • Soft & creamy so it’s easy to apply
  • Nourishing, daily moisturizer
  • Ideal base for DIY beauty blends
  • Sustainably harvested in Uganda
  • Not tested on animals

The Details

Product Description: Product Description: Organic, raw and unrefined, our ivory-colored Ugandan Shea Butter is extracted from carefully selected nuts of the African karité tree. Unlike West African shea that can be hard and tough to spread, our Ugandan shea has a soft, creamy texture that melts into skin, leaving it velvety smooth. Great for moisturizing on its own, and the perfect base for do-it-yourself soaps, lotions, hair masks and more.

Ingredients: Organic Shea (Vitellaria nilotica) Butter (Sheanut)

Size: 16 fl. oz. (454g)

Country of Origin: Uganda

Storage: Keep away from heat and light.

How We're Different

Raw, unrefined & soothing to skin 

Our organic Shea Butter is made from carefully-picked shea nuts from a tree in Uganda called the African karité tree. While lower-grade “refined” shea butters are extracted using harsh chemicals, ours is unrefined, meaning it’s extracted using water. This gives it a natural ivory color (as opposed to yellow or white) and a mild, nutty scent, making it a moisturizing must-have for many.

Spread-ready texture means no scooping struggles

It can be tough to spread West African sheas that come to you hard as a rock. Our Ugandan shea is higher in a fatty acid called oleic acid, which makes it softer and creamier. Since its natural fatty acids have different melting points (some are solid or liquid depending on the temperature outside), it can feel a bit runny or grainy when you first touch it. No biggie ― the graininess disappears when you rub it between your fingers, and you can get overall creaminess by placing your closed shea jar in a hot water bath, and cooling in the fridge.

Blends beautifully in your DIY favorites

It’s not just your moisturizer that can benefit from the natural treatment. Our creamy shea makes it easy to whip up your own homemade, nourishing hair masks, body butters, scrubs, lip balms...the list goes on. All sans chemicals! And if you like adding essential oils, our shea’s subtle scent means that’s all you’ll smell. See below for some great ideas.

Fair trade and sustainably-sourced

To help you feel good inside and out, it’s important to know that our Shea Butter is fair trade, and made sustainably by women’s cooperatives in Uganda. So by supporting your skin, you’re supporting thousands of families, too.

Ways to Enjoy

Moisturizing Body Butter 

Perfect post-shower, or anytime! Mix together 1/4 cup of Viva Naturals Nilotica Shea Butter with 1/4 cup of Viva Naturals Coconut Oil, then mix in a few drops of your favorite essential oil until well combined. Transfer to a container and store in a cool, dark place.

All-Natural Face Cream

Getting that fresh-faced glow naturally doesn’t have to be complicated. Mix 1 tablespoon of Shea Butter with one drop of rosemary oil. Massage into your skin using a circular motion, being careful not to get it in your eyes.

Refreshing Lip Balm 

For soft lips, melt 2 tbsp of Shea Butter, 2 tbsp of beeswax pastilles, 2 tbsp of Viva Coconut Oil and 5-10 drops of peppermint essential oil in a double boiler, or small glass bowl over a pot of boiling water. Stir constantly until melted. Remove pan from heat (keeping the bowl over the water to keep the mixture melted). Working quickly, use a dropper to fill lip balm tubes. Let sit at room temp until hardened before capping.

DIY Hair Mask

Not just for skin! For beautiful, shiny-looking hair, melt 1 tbsp of Shea Butter with 2 tbsp of Viva Coconut Oil in a microwave or double boiler. Let cool until almost solid, and add 1 tsp Viva Argan oil. Whip together for 3-5 minutes for a more spreadable texture. Comb through clean, dry hair and let sit for 30 minutes. Rinse hair, and shampoo as usual. Great for quenching dry hair and taming frizz, naturally.
