     Discover the amazing, rich and creamy properties of a rare shea butter found only in secluded areas of East Africa. This anti-aging wonder cream is rich in age-defying vitamins A & E. Velvety soft, this butter luxuriously caresses delicate facial skin and melts into the body providing healing, anti-aging nourishment. Sustainably collected and naturally extracted, this butter goes through no refining yet its aroma is subtle in comparison to its West African counterpart.
     Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is so gentle and pure that it is a must have to protect delicate baby skin. Baby lotions and oils (except all natural ones) contain harsh chemicals, fragrances and dyes. Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is a pure, protective emollient straight from nature. Shea Nilotica Shea Butter keeps babies skin dreamy soft and protects against irritation and chaffing.
     Shea Nilotica Shea Butter is produced by the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative in Northern Uganda. Many of the women have escaped the hands of their kidnappers from the rebel army. Some were even been kidnapped as young girls. Some have lost many of their family members, including their husbands and children. The Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative gives these women an opportunity for independence that most women in Africa will never get. By selling their shea butter to Shea Terra Organics the women earn up to eight times what their western counterparts get for their shea butter. The women then use the money to feed, educate and get medical services for their children. Some women have taken on orphaned children after losing their own to the war, and are now able to care for them. Many of the women have bought their own small homes, in cash, built for them by the project.
     Shea Nilotica grows in green areas which receive far more rain than the dry savannahs where western shea butter grows. The women care for the shea trees and collect the nuts of the fallen fruits which they winnow and allow to sun dry. The nuts are then sent to the mill where they are crushed into emollient, soft butter. While women in western Africa will spend hours producing small amounts of shea butter, the women of the Otuwe Shea Butter Cooperative have been blessed with a mill to do the work for them, saving them hours of back breaking work while producing a superior quality butter. The women are paid premium for Shea Terra Organics' Shea Nilotica Shea Butter, and the cooperative have set the prices so that the women receive eight times what women in western Africa receive. By purchasing Shea Nilotica Shea Butter you are not only doing a great service for your skin, you are changing the lives of women and their children forever.

Why is shea nilotica superior to other shea butters? Shea nilotica is superior to West African shea butter in some ways and not so much in other ways. The two butters complement each other for premium skin care maintenance. Shea Nilotica is higher in olein than West African shea butter, and thus it is less waxy. Overtime, West African shea butter can build up a waxy film. Alternating the two decreases this effect. Selling and using both butters for many years, we have noticed that Shea Nilotica is not as healing as West African shea butter. However, it is gentler on the face where we recommend it the most. It also is much easier to spread making it more likely that a person will use it on larger areas of the body more often.

Creamy lovliness
  Love this shea butter. It is not super thick like the other brands, which I love. You can just see how nourishing it is as it immediately absorbs in your skin and has the most delicate shimmer. It's a fave of mine!

  Shea Nilotica East African Shea Butter is absolutely addictive! My skin is firmer and smoother. I use it everywhere on my body, especially on my lips and around my eyes. I keep it close to me in the evenings so I can apply it as many times as I like. Very happy and impressed with this Shea Butter...will not ever use any other brand! Love it!

  Though I don't doubt the quality of the ingredients, found the butter to be too thick for application. Will try something else when this has been used.

  I have so many different shea butters from other companies to compare this to and I have come to a conclusion finally! This is the most luxurious and pleasant smelling shea butter! You only need a little dab of it and it goes a long way. Don't waste you time with others!

Calypso & Nilotik
  I started using Shea Butter as an aftershave about 1 year ago. Currently using Al's Calypso shaving cream followed by Shea Terra Nilotik. Like another reviewer, I tried shea butter as an aftershave after seeing it mentioned on a shaving forum. I prefer the moisturized feel and nutty fragrance of this product over the sting of alcohol based aftershaves.

  This product is amazing. I have suffered from Lupus for over 10 years. This product as well as most of the Shea Terra Organics products that I purchase from the site are a God send. Tammie, bless you and this company for developing products that are useful during these treatments that I am going through.

Simply the best
  I have incredibly dry, sensitive skin and once I discovered Shea Terra about 10 years ago I was instantly addicted. Shea Nilotica is the best shea butter I have ever used. It trumps all the expensive brands out there. It feels like silk when applied to the skin and spreads easily like melted butter. It also has hardly any aroma for those of you sensitive to strong smells. This product remains a staple in my skin routine. I only wish it was sold in larger sizes since I use it daily.

Traditional shaver
  I first learned about Shea butter around three years ago on vacation in the west. I started using it along with African black soap to help this aging skin that's seen its share of sun. About two years ago I discovered Shea Terra Nilotik' Shea butter through a traditional shaving forum, i.e. double edged razor, brush, and real shaving soap/cream that gives a superb, smooth shave. After shower and a shave, l apply to my face. Most people guess my age at late forties, however I'm sixty three, and I can thank Shea Terra for some of that. Funny, looks like I'm the only man reviewing here, so for all the women that use this product, pass it on to the guys out there for an aftershave embellishment.

Best Cream Ever
  I have been using shea butter on my face since my cousin turned me on to it in 2003. I have tried the different varieties but like the Shea Nilotica the best. People always comment on how beautiful my face is and no wrinkles. They do not believe me when I tell them I have a 40 year old son. When I am out with my Mom and grandchildren they think I am the mother and my Mom is the grandmother. Pretty amazing cream. I also use only the rose hips & pink clay facial soap. Another great product. Try it you will fall in love, it goes on so smooth and is absorbed into the skin keeping it looking young & beautiful. Customer For Life

  Another Shea Terra Organics' product to love. This Shea Butter is everything the description says and more! I don't know why it's different from the other shea butters I've tried, but it is. It's easy to spread and very lightly scented. I really like the way it moisturizes my face. I intend to hand this out at baby showers. I would have loved to have had this during my pregnancies!! Highly recommend.

  Great shea! This shea butter is very different from others I have tried and is creamy and easy to apply. I use it around my eyes and on elbows knees and feet. I live in Florida but if I am going to be indoors with air conditioning I use it lightly all over my face and I simply love it!
