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 would return this if it weren't already too late. First, I had to triple filter the debris out after it's melted in order to use it. It looks like there are pepper flakes in it, but who knows what it is. I used this to make cold process soap and something was NOT right. I have been making soap for over 10 years and have not had these results. Something is wrong with this. I'm not sure it's 100% shea butter. I'm SO disappointed!!!! What a waste of money and my other products.
Used to buy from another place, but they stopped selling organic unrefined Shea butter. SO GLAD I found this one! I bought the 4 lb pack and it came in two 2 lb blocks super convenient since I gave half to my coworker! I personally like the nutty smell, so I LOVED it. You can tell by the color and texture that this is in fact unrefined, raw Shea butter. It’s gritty, yet melts when in contact with body heat. And anyone who knows real Shea butter, it’s nkt going to be a perfect white color - the color varies from a darker yellow to a lighter yellow. Will buy again when I run out!
I use this for: Body lotion (obviously haha) Hair masks Lip balm Mixed with essential oils for an aromatic hand salve
SMELLS RANCID !!!! It came packaged horribly, it looked odd (greenish tint). It is a dark brownish green when melted! Soapers beware it turns soap color and smells badly AND has debris floating in it ....specs of floating objects when fully melted! NEVER put this in soap, lotion, or any cosmetic product. When you melt it is has tons of debris in it . SUPER disappointed !
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.
The butter was very smooth and moisturizing, However there were BUGS all in the product. The bugs were visible through the plastic that the Shea butter was in! There’s no way the seller didn’t see. I make body butters for my business. I don’t want to sell something to my customers that have had bugs in it. Will not buy from this seller again
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.
