What attracted me to this opportunity, aside from being a long time fan of pure shea butter, was that it's:
"100% Pure, Unrefined, Organic Shea Butter."
"Helps treat dark spots, skin discolorations, stretch marks and blemishes."
Pure Shea Butter is something I always sought after while pregnant or soon after pregnancy to reduce or get rid of stretch marks. It was like the magic cream. I would also use it on my elbows, knees and feet, because it softens the skin. My husband jokes that I scrape him with my elbows, so I'm so glad Cleopatra's Choice Brand Pure Shea Butter is the real deal! It smells like shea butter should (you know? kind of like candle wax) and made my elbows feel really soft again, from the first use. What's even better is the price for what you get. I used to pay $16 for a small jar of pure shea butter, but Cleopatra's Choice sells a 1 pound container for that same price. The container's large enough to last a really long time and I had the results I expected. Soft skin with no dry areas. After wearing heels daily, it's good to treat the rough, dry areas of my feet. I'm happy to have it again and plan to mix a little of it with a bit of coconut oil before going out in public.
Cleopatra's Choice Brand Pure Shea Butter - Raw & Unrefined Review
August 5, 2014 by
When I lived in NY, I would buy Pure Shea Butter from the Carol's Daughter shop in Brooklyn. After moving to FL, I ordered once from her website, but it was obvious that something had changed. It was no longer the shea butter I remembered, nor did it smell, feel or work the way it once did.
The only time I would have shea butter since then, is after a trip to NY when I can travel to the African Shop to pick up specialty soaps and body creams or when my mom brought some down to FL. I stopped using it for a while, actually it's been years, so I was excited and eager when the chance came to try Cleopatra's Choice Brand 100% Pure Shea Butter - Raw & Unrefined.

Please beware of where you buy your shea butter! There are some unscrupulous vendors out there on certain auction websites and other places that sell versions that have been processed and had the vitamins and nutrients pulled out of them, while claiming that it's the real thing. Please be sure that even if you don't buy from Cleopatra's Choice, that at least you purchase from a trusted vendor with credibility so you know that you are getting only the unrefined, Grade A version (this means the highest vitamin content). According to the Wikipedia article, only Grade A is considered unrefined and unprocessed, meaning the original vitamins and nutrients are still intact. Grades B and C are versions that have had the vitamins pulled out, usually for use in other cosmetics. This lower grade butter does not have the same healing and beauty properties as true, unrefined, Grade A Shea Butter.
