Summary of Customer Ratings & Reviews

Customer Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 2 out of 5 by stiff I was not pleased with the unyielding texture of this product. I had to use a flat edged knife to get the product out of the container. After that it would not spread evenly on my skin, but clumped. April 4, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best purchase Great for skin especially for the extremities of body Like toes and fingers. December 26, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I love this shea butter! I use it all over my body after I shower. Sometimes I mix it with coconut oil and essential oils to make my own hand and body lotion. It stays on all day, even when I wash my hands. July 2, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful Shea Butter This is a great shea butter and works well on my skin to soften and moisturize. It is a few dollars less expensive than another brand I have used, works as well and will be my choice from now on. May 23, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good stuff! I'm germ-phobic, so I wash my hands constantly. Consequently, I have to moisturize them a lot. I love this shea butter for moisturizing my hands/cuticles. It's soft enough to apply easily and absorb well; and it has a nice shea butter scent. My dog loves it, too. As soon as I apply it he goes crazy licking my hands. What up with that? September 14, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Smooth and soothing This is the best shea butter I've used. Unlike so many, it is smooth and creamy with no granules. It nourishes dry, flaky skin quickly. March 13, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by No Garbage It's simple... I use this cream because there isn't any garbage in it like most other lotions have. The only thing it lacks is convenience, it's not easy to apply. But since our skin is the largest organ of our body and absorbs at least 5 times more than what we eat, I'd rather have a pure product. Garbage in, garbage out---this especially includes my skin! February 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love this product Good price, excellent product, lasts all day on my dry skin December 19, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Wasn't too impressed I decided to try out shea butter for the first time. The shea butter itself was of good quality and it came in equally good condition. But I was not too thrilled with it. I tried using it on both my hair and skin and it was just too thick for my taste. Also there was a buttery almost cheese-like smell to it that I was not very fond of. For anyone who actually enjoys the use of shea butter, I would highly suggest this brand because it is good quality. But shea butter itself is not my cup of tea. January 13, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good price I have not used shea butter before, so I cannot compare the quality and effectiveness to any others. I looked around for the best price which turned out to be from Swanson. What would have made my overall rating better is if the shea butter was made from organic ingredients as some others were. But then, that might have driven up the price to be more comparable to the competitors'. December 23, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Awesome stuff This product is great for skin and hair. I use it for lotion, frizz control, and I even make my own lip gloss out of it. I don't particularly like that the product has to be scraped out of the tub and contaminate everything, but I don't think there's a better way to package it. November 28, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Shea is best I have extremely dry skin. I like being able to find a pure product to use even when I need to stay away from products that contain so many ingredients I cannot pronounce or understand. It works better than any lotion I have tried. Feel like I have baby soft skin for hours after using it. November 1, 2012
Rated 3 out of 5 by She Butter Cream This was more granulated than butter-creamy. September 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by good product yes, this product is in a solid form, need to heat up in microwave in order to mix with other, but still can put directly to skin. smooth my skin without oily look. August 30, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Wonderful product I bought this for a moisturiser and it works wonderful. Especially on my heels! Try...you will love it. May 31, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by A staple item for me This Shea Butter is easier to spread than others I have tried. I like using a pure product on my skin and was thrilled with the reasonable price. March 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best yet! This shea butter is the best I've ever used. It's soft and easy to apply. I'm very glad to have found it at such a good price at Swanson's. March 26, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Soft Skin I love how my skin drinks this up. No greasy leftover feel....just soft skin. March 16, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by I enjoy this product! I saw some complaints about the "roughness" of it! At first it was very moist and felt nice, but as i got further down in the jar, it started getting drier and "crumplier"...i do however really enjoy this product! Makes my skin feel SO wonderful after using it! Also, once you rub it in your hand for a few, it softens right up! I will continue to use this product, especially for the price! January 9, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product This is the best moisturizer I've ever used. No smell and lasts a long time. My face is extremely dry in winter and this lasts all day. March 10, 2011
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most effective moisturizer, best price Shea butter softens and moisturizes my skin like nothing else. I've tried many unrefined natural oils and all-natural creams and lotions. Shea really soaks in and does the job. I can even mix it in with my facial cream to make it extra moisturizing and no breakouts! February 3, 2011
Rated 1 out of 5 by NOT for face I tried this in my face, alternating with Pure Jojoba oil and it actually increased the tiny wrinkles I have below my mouth, in the jaw area! This might work kinda nice for the skin of your hands and feet, but that's it--NOT face! January 28, 2011
Rated 2 out of 5 by I like shea butter, but this was way too gritty I like shea butter very much, it's a superb moisturizer for my super-sensitive, 57 year old skin. It's also good for taming the frizzies on the rare occasion that we have rain here in the desert. I expect some grittiness with any all-natural shea butter, but this was extreme. It didn't matter how much or how fast I warmed/rubbed it in the palms of my hands, I still ended up with grit all over my face that I had to pick off. I use a different brand now. November 11, 2010
Rated 2 out of 5 by gritty I have been using the now brand for a few years and I have loved it until recently. About the time the label was redesigned, the shea butter became very gritty. I try to warm it up in my hands but the grittyness remains. Swanson has been more than gracious in replacing them when this happens. The first replacement was smooth and not gritty. The second replacement was still gritty. Tough to smooth on face with hard grit. Too bad because it was great and good value. I will be looking for a replacement. August 18, 2010
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Buy I'm sensitive to chemicals and found that I can safely use this product with no reaction. I also noticed that it keeps my skin moist. I love how creamy it is. I bring it in the hot shower with me and let it melt a bit before putting it on, just after I dry off. I think the price is great for the quality of product that you get. I'm so glad I discovered this product and I'm pretty sure you will enjoy it too. June 15, 2010
