Shea Butter

 

Rocket Robin eliminates all the middle men and brings you the finest Shea Butter the world has to offer!

Shea butter melts at body temperature.  Because of its unique fatty-acid composition, shea butter is a soft fat and it absorbs rapidly into the skin, acts as a “re-fatting” agent, and has good water-binding properties.

Shea butter is NON-TOXIC and non-irritating.  It is derived from totally renewable natural resources!  It is easy to use as a cosmetic and within cosmetic formulations, either home-made or commercial varieties.

The peculiar strength of shea butter is due to its up to 8% content of UNSAPONIFIABLES which also provide extra sun protection and cellular growth stimulation.  Shea butter’s healing properties are believed to be due to its superior cinnamic acid content as compared to common oils.  Traditionally, shea butter is used as a balm for rheumatism, muscle aches, burns and light wounds with amazing results!  Shea butter is believed to alleviate many skin irritations by inducing capillary circulation in the skin, which in turn increases tissue re-oxygenation and enhances the elimination of metabolic waste products.

Shea-nuts

Unrefined Shea Butter is…naturally rich in a number of vitamins. Vitamins A, E, F and K.

Vitamin E balances and normalizes the skin. Helps keep it clear and healthy, particularly beneficial for dry or sun-exposed skin.

Vitamin A has soothing and hydrating properties which provides healthy skin collagen in order to prevent premature wrinkles, premature facial lines and premature slackened skin.

Vitamin F – Acts as a skin protector and revitalizer. It soothes rough, dry or chapped skin on contact and helps soften and revitalize dry or damaged hair. Vitamin F consists of linoleic, linolenic and arachidonic acids, the three essential fatty acids.

Processing/refining Raw Shea Butter takes away its natural healing properties.  It is important to preserve the ancient methods of Shea Butter production.  By using it in its RAW state rather than processed, there are countless benefits:

SHEA BUTTER IS SOOTHING AND LUSTROUS AND PROTECTS, MOISTURIZES, REVITALIZES, RELAXES. REFRESHES, AND MAINTAINS SKIN & HAIR MOISTURE.

UNREFINED COLOR:  Because Unrefined Shea Butter is extracted traditionally or cold pressed, the color may vary between light grey, ivory/almond pale and light yellow. The color of Unrefined Shea Butter depends on the Shea Nut itself.  Due to the nature of the nuts, the color of Unrefined Shea Butter may vary.

The traditional method of preparing unrefined shea butter consists of the following steps:

  • Separating/cracking:  The outer pulp of the fruit is removed. When dry, the nut, which is the source of shea butter, must be separated from the outer shell.  This is a social activity, traditionally done by Women Elders and young girls who sit on the ground and break the shells with small rocks.
  • Crushing:  To make the shea nuts into butter, they must be crushed.  Traditionally, this is done with mortars and pestles.  It requires lifting the pestles and grinding the nuts into the mortars to crush the nuts so they can be roasted.
  • Roasting:  The crushed nuts are then roasted in huge pots over open, wood fires.  The pots must be stirred constantly with wooden paddles so the butter does not burn.  The butter is heavy and stirring it is hot, smoky work, done under the sun.  This is where the slight, smoky smell of traditional shea butter originates.
  • Grinding:  The roasted shea nuts are ground into a smoother paste, water is gradually added and the paste is mixed well by hand.
  • Separating the oils:   The paste is kneaded by hand in large basins and water is gradually added to help separate out the butter oils. As they float to the top, the butter oils, which are in a curd state, are removed and excess water squeezed out. The butter oil curds are then melted in large open pots over slow fires. A period of slow boiling will remove any remaining water, by evaporation.
  • Collecting and shaping:  The shea butter, which is creamy or golden yellow at this point, is ladled from the top of the pots and put in cool places to harden.  Then it is formed into balls and/or other shapes.

    Not the best...I did not like this Shea Butter at all. I'm a Ghanian, so I know Shea Butter very well. I don't doubt that it's authentic Shea Butter, but the one I got was a very low grade of Shea Butter and it was very HARD. Other Shea Butter I'm used to is hard but soft on touch and melts on the skin even in the natural state, but not this one. Not only was this exceptionally hard (even though I melted it and added carrier oils to make whipped body butter), but the smell was awful. The warm nutty creamy Shea Butter scent I'm used to was missing. This one smelled like dirty oil. Usually when I make whipped Shea body butter I only add a few drops of essential oil, with this Shea butter I had to empty nearly the whole bottle and the bad scent of the Shea butter was still there! It's so bad that I can't even sell this batch. I am very disappointed.

    I believe the type of shea butter that you are used to is REFINED shea butter that has little aroma and is softer and with lower melting point.  I sell only UNREFINED shea butter with all the natural vitamins, anti-oxidants and magical healing properties that science has not yet even discovered.  My shea butter has a higher lauric acid content than others on the market and this is due to less handling and smaller batches, and it is a lot harder and takes a bit more time to melt on the skin.  It also exhibits more colour variation even within the brick of shea butter itself and this natural variation is due to the individual nuts from which it is taken. I am disappointed that it does not work for you, but I wanted to make sure everyone is fully aware of the differences between refined and unrefined, and that I would never sell anything even remotely refined.- ROCKETROBIN

    AmazingI have bought shea butter elsewhere that has cost me an arm and a leg and this is not only the msot cost effective for me but it is also (I find) a better quality than the ones I buy at the specialty store for only a fraction of the cost. I have already made body butters and lotions using this shea butter and it feels sooooo nice!!

    I hope very soon.  The last shipment was delayed from Ghana.  I buy only in small batches and never stockpile, so sometimes I run into this problem depending on sales volume.  I apologise to everyone waiting. (I know there are thousands of you out there who have already contacted me and thousands more after that). - Rocket Robin
