Best Places to Buy Unrefined Shea Butter - Online or in Chicago area??

Hey all. I'm looking for PURE unrefined shea butter. I previously purchased from nasabb but found that something was off.... So they are not an option. Any other suggestions are most welcome! I live in Chicago but have only seen shea in one African store (and it was blended with something). So again, any suggestions for pure unrefined shea online or in the area are really appreciated!

Thanks ladies!

BTW!!
Has anyone purchased from crabapplesoap.com? Any reviews? Also looking for suggestions for mango and avocado butters.

Thanks again ladies!

I purchase mine from http://www.agbangakarite.com/

The quality is superb and they are fair trade. It's only $12 for a 14 oz tub. You can even puchase it in bulk by the pound.They are very good with shipping. Make sure you purcahse it from the bulk store not the Allaffia retail store (the retail version is refined, more exspensive and what they sell at wholefoods).

I like my gels light, my oils heavy, my conditioners thick, and my curls long...
I see a lot of people on CurlyNikki and YT giving good reviews for the shea butter on http://www.butters-n-bars.com/index.html . I haven't ordered any yet but I plan on getting a few items including the shea butter from that site. Their shea butter is white. She explains why it's white (no additives or something).

I just got my shea butter yesterday. Even though it took too long to get here and my package was busted, I ama satisfied with my shea butter. I love the scents and the raw unrefined shea is divine. Next time I place an order from here, I will definately avoid the winter

You ordered from butters-n-bars?
I want to give them the benefit of the doubt because the weather was bad apparently, but over 3 weeks is too damn long. She gave me a free expedited shipping code for my inconvenience IF I decide to order from BNB again. I really like the shea but I have to think about it. I have a lot right now so when I'm running low and I still like really like it then I'll take advantage of the free shipping. I have tried other unrefined shea butters and I really like the quality of this unrefined one for some reason

The shea butter is nice and I like the mango butter I ordered too. I wanted to try the conditioner mask, but like I said before Im not sure about ordering from bnb again. Im glad we at least like the shea butter

Wait! I didn't know there was an Avocado butter. I like my mango butter from BNB's so much I haven't used the shea yet. Another place with good raw butters is http://www.coastalscents.com/cfwebstore/index.cfm I've also heard good things about their 88 color make-up palettes as a GOOD and less expensive alternative to MAC.

Side note: Butters-N-Bars & Coastal Scents are both fair trade.
