I’ve ordered from this company twice.Yellow Brick Road. I weigh mine and it’s always a little over. The quality is very nice, I run a small beauty company so it’s important to me. Some of these reviews are silly. Raw Shea butter has a bit of an odor, refined will not, and refined will be white where as this butter is a light yellow. I’ve never found any bugs or debris either. It’s real, raw, quality Shea butter.
I love, love, love this shea butter. I've used many brands from several companies in my soap making, but this is by far my favorite. It comes in a solid chunk and wrapped in a sealed bag. I like that because it's easier for me to cut off bits to weigh. After opening, I put it into a zipper lock bag to maintain freshness. The Yellow Brick Road shea has a buttery color and a slight smell, but that has not impacted the color or scent of my soap. It's the nicest smelling shea butter that I've personally used. It reminds me of a light cocoa butter scent.
I received the Shea butter on time as expected. It came in a foil sealed foil pouch with the bitter inside a clear plastic sealed bag. I was skeptical at first before ordering but decided to give it a chance. There are small noticeable black flecks through out the product and when melted down it appears to have dirt streaked through it. The butter is not uniform in color and doesn’t appear as thigh it was packaged in a clean facility. I canning in good conscience use this to make body butters. Do NOT buy this product.
I am making soap because I and others in my family have dry skin issues. I am absolutely delighted with this product. Thank you yellow brick. PS: if you want white and lower odor, then order the refined shea butter.
This is maybe my4th time buying this product and it was amazing. But...... this last time, I'm very disappointed. It's not sheer and creamy like the past! No matter how much I blended or whipped the shea. It has lil grainy bits of i take it the nut. It is all in my whipped shea butter and Iam pissed about that!
I found this to be a top notch Shea Butter. I made body butter using both the Shea and Cocoa Butters, Camelia Seed andGrapeseed as Carrier oils and Carrot Essential oil. It came out beautifully. I'm already making my second batch. If you are on the fence about this butter, jump as this is the one to purchase.
I love the Shea butter I use it to make all my body butters as well as my hair creams I’ve purchased it a few times when will continue to do so let’s take its rich I like that it comes in a big block and it’s not a whole bunch of crumbled pieces
Color was really off (whitish grey with a little yellow), contents were dried in various patches, whole thing was crumbly and this was all noticeable before I even opened the inner bag to touch it. Won't be buying again.
