How do I use it?

Shea Butter can be used however you see fit. It typically comes in a solid form and once it warms up it softens (and melts). You can scrape the product into your hands with a scooper, fingers, spoon, etc.

It can be used as a daily facial moisturizer, a hair oil (not too often on the scalp), a skin softener, an eczema treatment, and more. You can use as much or as little as you like.


The price of Shea Butter is normally around $5-$8. BUT due to to the import/export taxes and restrictions, I am here to tell you, the price is going up! The price for raw shea butter is almost doubling. If it has not doubled in your area, then it most likely will soon.

Whipped Shea Butter is another option for moisture! Whipped Shea butter is a lighter/ creamier version of typical shea butter with all the same results!!

  • At THH, we can add your favorite scents to your whipped shea butter! For example, we can add Gucci Guilty, Frank & Myrrh, Black Butter, Pink Sugar, and more!
