This is a favorite with me and with my 13-year-old son for hands, feet, elbows, and knees in winter. It soaks in quickly, penetrates deeply, and conditions the skin for longer than regular moisturizers.

In an attempt to change from Origins Precipitation Extra to something more natural and affordable, I chose this Shea Butter. It is very waxy and oily which makes a mess. I doubt if I will even continue using this product.

I love this shea butter. I'm not a fan of chemicals or scents and this is pure shea butter which is difficult to find. I understand that is takes getting use to, but once you learn to rub it around on your palms before you apply to arms and legs, it goes on much smoother. Rubbing it into your arms and legs is good for your circulation (a little daily massage). Thank you for continuing to offer this unscented moisturizer.

This shea butter is the best! I use it on my very dry, callused feet and they look and feel so much better. I have used several different products and none have worked as fast or as well as this does. So glad to have found this product! and knowing how this product has come to be, makes it even better. Thank You!

I've used this Shea Butter for my hands for quite some time. It was one of my first orders from your wonderful catalogue! I use it at night as it is a heavy cream, but my hands love it. Don't expect fragrance in this butter. It is the real deal! Just shea butter with no additives.

Great stuff! I use it after my shower and when my hands are dry from the cold. No strong smell so it's easy on my asthma.

This was a gift for my mother-in-law who seems very happy with it. I would order it again.

I wonder if Isabella has any idea how many little tins of this product I've purchased over the past six or seven years. I'm retired now, but I used to have a tin at work and a tin at home. I make it a practice to never run out of this!

Great substance for aiding dry skin during the winter months. I've also been using it to help heal serious burns on my body.

I like this Shea Butter! I have Lichen Planus, which is a itchy rash, this Shea butter helps with the dryness!

I LOVE this shea butter. I have tried other products that claimed to have shea butter and found that they were mostly water. This shea butter has a pleasant faint fragrance. It does an amazing job of softening my dry heels. I also use a little on my elbows to keep them from becoming "elephant elbows". AND I get to support a worthy cause!

Very loose and runny- not pleasant to use.

The product is great - does exactly what it says. The natural smell of the butter does take a little to get use to but the feel of my skin afterward is totally worth it. I'll definitely be purchasing more.

Wonderful emollient but not crazy about the scent. It is a lovely natural product but somehow I would like it to smell differently! Probably just me, and I am enjoying it.

This is my second tin of Ojoba Shea butter. I love the way it softens my skin, also the rough parts on my feet and elbows. In a cool room you need to put an amount in your hand and rub hands together to melt for application. It lasts a long time only needs a small amount to soften.

Very helpful to deal with my dry skin especially in winter season. I have had red patches on my hands for a while, and after using this butter right after I washed and dried my hands, they are almost gone. Very thin layer is needed as this is butter, not cream. Any type of skin can benefit from this product, I think.

Great find, I'd call it either unscented or "earthy" and natural. Amazing how it absorbs into the skin, it takes about a minute or two - my hands feel so soft afterwards! Used this on my children's eczema as well, with good results.

Bought this before and it worked so well in healing cracked, dry skin on my feet and hands that I got more to give to family members.

Goes on sticky but that soon evaporates. And there is the smell that evaporates too, in about an hour, but does its job well.

I absolutely love this moisturizer! It has helped my cuticles and dry knuckles more than anything else I have tried. A little goes a long way, so it is economical to use, too. I appreciate that it is 100 natural. I am so pleased to have found this product I strongly recommend it to anyone.

Loved it so much I bought it again for my dad, my mom, and my in-laws! Thick but smooths right in to flaking and dry hands.

This is the real deal. I hunted a long time for pure unadulterated shea butter. I thought I found it . . . a few years ago but that one was bleached white. I love that I am supporting a good cause with each purchase, I love the natural smell of this product, and I even love the little tin it comes in. I love that a person touched this instead of a stainless steel machine. All that and it works, too. It's great for my feet and hands at bedtime. Lips, too.

This isn't the best of this type of product. It goes on rather greasy and thick. The smell isn't too bad, but I wouldn't purchase it again. The Lavender and Rosemary Shea product is far superior to me.

I was not sure what to expect, so maybe some of my reserve is that I was not familiar with pure Shea Butter. I have used this product several times and I think it works well. However, it is very thick, gummy, and sticky. It does not go on easily or smoothly. What I have found to help, is to put a glob in my hands and then to rub my hands briskly to create friction heat, thereby allowing the shea butter to go on a little more easily.
Submitted on Dec 31, 2012
Actually, it would probably be easier to use in warmer weather. In the cold, it gets a bit difficult to get out of the container and warm in your hands to spread on. I use it first and use something less thick to help spread it around.

This shea butter really helps my dry, itching, cracking hands. I have also used it on my feet after running. I don't particularly like the smell, but it fades quickly and is definitely worth it!

I purchased this for my cuticles which are always dried out and ragged. It worked wonders. Then I had a reaction to bug bites chiggers and the itching from the inflamed baseball-size bites on my legs were unbearable. After trying every product on the market I thought I'd give the Shea butter a try and low and behold the itching stopped immediately. Also, the product is from a Fair Trade Federation Member. Love that too.

First time buyer.. Love that this product is part of the Fair Trade Project... Use mainly on my hands after washing dishes... Works great!

I was surprised that one tin could last as long. This is a very natural, sort of earthy product, which I use on my eczema, and more. I forget now how many tins I've purchased...but I am a repeat buyer of this economical shea butter.

Great product. Only wish is that it came in a bigger size as I use it as an after-bath all over body treatment.

I use the Ojoba Collective Shea Butter on problem area skin as well as a regular skin treatment. I am out in the sun a lot of the time, on the water, etc. and have developed over the years specific sun "damaged" places, for instance on my shins. I find the butter makes things much better almost immediately. Legs look better and feel better in a matter of moments. It's a great product.

Excellent product. My feet and elbows are very soft. A little goes a long way. I use it anywhere my skin gets dry and irritated and it always works.
