Want Raw Shea Butter?

Buying shea butter online just doesn't make sometimes when you live in Canada because of those shipping fees.

I live in Toronto and I was able to get 100% pure shea butter from a local African & West Indian store for only $5.99. ( Someone was trying to sell me the same size of shea butter at 2 for $20 in the mall and it had that yellow dye in it.)

If your looking for 100% natural shea butter at a good price you should check out these types of stores.

    Where in Toronto did you get it? Also, what size was the tub/jar?
