Softest Pure Shea?

NvmbrCurlssNvmbrCurlss Posts: 732Registered Users
I want to mix a smidge of raw Shea with KCKT (to replace my GSO for heavier sealing in these low dews). I would like it nice and soft. I know some raw brands are softer than others. Please help me out?

    Go for the ivory Shea. It's the softest and has a subtler scent.

    You can also heat raw shea better gently and then whip it with a hand/stick blender - soft and light!

    DuchessGabrielle on YT broke down Shea butter and it color. She said the ivory/whiteish color is real Shea butter. The yellow is an African butter but its not Shea butter. She even went on to say that there are companies who go as far as to dye their shea butter yellow and sell it!!! This was so informative.

    I have been buying my Shea butter and African black soap from www.agbangakarite.com for years. But if you want a more softer Shea butter consistency, I highly suggest Now Shea Butter. This stuff is amazing. :-)
