Default Shea Butter as an emulsifier

On the recipes board, I saw something for Hot Coconut Milk Chocolate and it seems like a good deep treatment, and I'd love to use it as an everyday condish. I was thinking shea butter would be a good emulsifier so it would have a thicker consistency, so where could I buy it raw? Thanks!

You can buy it raw on Ebay. I got it pretty cheap. Check out the sellers though, some have a few neg f/b because they don't package it properly and it leaked. Look for sellers listing it as "raw unrefined shea butter" You really have to look for the unrefined stuff, that's the one with the good healing/moisturizing properties.

Shea butter isn't an emulsifier, but it would make the product thicker. A lot of curlies like www.nasabb.com
