How does Shea Butter smell?
Unlike most other oils, Premium Grade A Shea Butter is non-comedogenic (will not clog the pores).
We have found most people either like the nutty aroma of Natural Premium Grade A Shea Butter or will use their favorite perfume or cologne after applying Premium Grade A Shea Butter.
If you find the aroma of Shea Butter to be strong or really smells bad the Shea Butter is probably rancid or contaminated. Don't buy it.
Some companies will overpower the smell of Shea Butter with essential oils or fragrance oils. If the percentage of essential oils or fragrance oils is too great the medicinal benefits of Shea Butter will be lost.
We add a hint of organic essential oils or a fragrant oil to some of our products for those customers that do not care for the scent of Natural Premium Grade A Shea Butter. We carefully monitor the amounts of oils added making certain not to destroy the medicinal qualities of our Premium Grade A Shea Butter and maintaining our Premium Grade A Shea Butter rating.
