Shea Butter Recipes

Agbanga Karite is happy to assist in gathering recipes from around the world for natural cosmetic products that are specifically developed for unrefined shea butter, virgin palm kernel oil, virgin red palm oil, virgin coconut oil, and African black soap. The goal of this page is to share ideas with others to increase our knowledge about the use of pure unrefined shea butter and virgin oils in shea butter body butters, soaps, creams, and hair care products. Please submit your recipes and we will be happy to add them to the site. Feel free to use and alter these recipes.* We only ask that you do not sell them for personal financial gain and that you contribute your own recipes to share...
