**Thanks for checking out my store! Please note that sizes under 2lbs are sold as fluid ounces and not dry ounces because packaging is by volume and not weight and for shipping cost optimization. Shea butter and most butters and oils have a specific gravity of around .92 so 16 fl/oz would equal about 92% of the weight of dry ounces. The shipping above 15.99 dry ounces increases the total cost by $3, so using fluid ounces seems to be the best overall value and keeps the total just under 15.99 oz shipped. Let me know if you have any questions.
This East African Shea (Nilotica Shea) is hygienically Cold Pressed & produced in the same way as our West African Shea Butter. East African Shea Butter is very rare and accounts for 1% off all shea butter produced in the world. One of the qualities of this type of shea butter is it's high olien content, which makes it much softer. Nilotica shea butter is considered the “luxury” shea butter product in comparison to western shea butter. It is richer, creamier, & much more difficult to obtain. Many also say that East African Shea Butter contains a higher portion of Shea Butters healing qualities. Often you will see this type of shea butter sold in small 8oz containers for $20. We are the only company selling multiple sizes at reasonable prices anywhere.
In 2010, results from a clinical test shows that Shea Butter contains triterpenes compounds that exhibits significant anti-inflammatory and anti-tumour activity. It helps to reduce joint inflammation while improving circulation.

SHIP IN BOX ADD ON: I typically ship this in a bubble mailer for 5lbs and under. I have an option to ship this in a box but the price difference is based on how far away from my location you are located. For addresses that are within a few states the cost difference is minimal and for states like New York, California, Alaska, Hawaii it is $4. If you select this option and the cost is less than the amount charged i will refund the difference. Its most important to select this option if you live in a hot climate or just want the extra assurance that your product will arrive without issue. Any shipments over 1lb are automatically insured for $100 regardless of shipping method. Contact me if you have any questions.
