Organic Shea Butter Nilotica ~ East African 100g


For shea butter connoisseurs everywhere! We’re excited to finally share with you this wonderfully unique and rare shea butter nilotica from East Africa.

Unlike West African shea butter, shea butter nilotica is naturally soft and buttery and ready to use straight from the tub. An incredible natural skin food, this is as close to nature as a body butter can get! Richly moisturising to dry skin, problem skin and skin exposed to the sun and wind. Nutrient rich, it is very easily applied and it is ideal for hungry or very dry skin.  It has excellent moisturising properties and has a phenolic profile similar to that of green tea.

Why choose Shea Butter Nilotica? Uniquely buttery, it has a higher content of oleic acid, making it naturally soft and creamy.  Also known as golden shea butter, this natural treasure is unrefined, wildcrafted, organic and ethically traded with women’s co-operatives in Uganda and Sudan.

Free from any chemical processing, this shea butter retains all its natural goodness, creamy colouring and natural earthy aroma. Cold processing ensures that it’s vitamin A and E content are preserved.

Colour: Light creamy yellow

Texture: Creamy and buttery. Any occasional graininess melts on contact with the skin.

Aroma: Sweet, earthy, lightly smoky (like forest honey).

    Oh my goodness, this is exquisite. I have used shea butter for years and I wouldn’t be without it. But this is sublime. It’s so creamy and luxurious and I can tell my skin loves it. The shea butters I have used in the past feel quite firm and need warming up before you can apply. This melts so easily and has an almost “frothy” consistency as if there were tiny bubbles in it. If you love shea butter you have to try this, trust me.

    AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!! This is exactly what I wanted and more.
    I hope you provide a large tub for purchase in the future.

    Thanks for getting hold of this Shea butter. It has a lovely warm nutty aroma and is so smooth on the skin.

    This is lovely, great moisturiser. Would be great to have a selection of sizes, and an option for added essential oils.

    This Nilotica Shea is incredibly moisturising. It smells wonderful & is even easier to use than the usual shea. My skin is very sensitive & is responding extremely well. You only have to use a small amount, which makes it quicker to soak in all the wonderful benefits.

    Absolutely the best shea butter I’ve ever come across, this is super moisturizing, my skin is in love with this butter. It doesn’t make me breakout, its fantastic – thank you Akamuti for finding this butter and introducing it to us. I would love to have different sizes of this, a bit one for body, medium for face and specially a travel size. I’m hooked.

    This smells lovely- a mix of coffee and chocolate. The butter is more oily than plain shea butter and therefore is easier to apply.

  8. Anita (verified owner)

    Sublime. I have natural 4b, high porosity hair and this is my hair butter. Nothing comes close.
    Softness – check!
    Shine – check!
    Nourished strands and ends that glide past each other – check!
