One of the first things I purchased from BGLH Marketplace was the Coconut Whipped Shea Body Butter. As a child, coconut was a scent that reminded me of summer or the beach. In fact, during the summer, my mother used to slather Hawaiian Tropic sun tanning oil on me and my sisters to help with our tan. The oil was heavily scented with coconut and was so intoxicatingly pleasant. 

Now I only use tanning oil after applying sunscreen, but I remember thinking how great it would be if there were just a regular coconut scented oil or lotion. So when I saw that BGLH Marketplace carried Coconut Whipped Shea Butter, I jumped at the opportunity to purchase it. Not just for nostalgia but because I have actually included coconut scents into my summer “smell good” routine. (I’m big on perfumes, scented lotions, body oil, butters, basically any skincare product that smells good.) 

I use Coconut Whipped Shea Butter as a base for all of my perfumes during the hot summer months. The scent is strong but not overpowering or heady. 

What’s in Coconut Whipped Shea Body Butter?

This butter is super pure with just three ingredients; shea butter, coconut oil and almond oil.

How do I use it?

While all BGLH Marketplace butters can be used for both hair and skin (click here for a detailed description of how to use our whipped butters on hair), Coconut Whipped Shea is particularly versatile in that aspect. Coconut oil has been hugely popular in the natural hair community for years. Here are some ways to use it:

  1. As a daily lotion for 24 to 48 hour moisture. Whether you need a light moisturizer or something more pentrating, this body butter works.
  2. To reduce scars, stretch marks, burns, keratosis pilaris and keloids.
  3. As a softening foot cream.
  4. As a softening hand cream and nail growth treatment.
  5. As a leave in or deep conditioner for hair.
  6. As a styling cream for styles like twist, braids, twist outs and braid outs.
  7. As a curl definer for wash and go’s (either on its own or combined with a gel.)
  8. To reduce frizz and increase shine in hair.
  9. As a scalp treatment to reduce dryness, itching and dandruff, and stimulate.

What do others think of it?

So you already know I love it, but here are what others have to say ;

“Hands down the best shea butter in my opinion. I have been a customer for some time and love the scent of coconut. It reminds me of the islands and smells great in all seasons of the year. I have purchased numerous 12oz containers because it is a great value. Plus a little goes a very long way. I have introduced this product to so many people and everyone has the same reaction. “What is this and where did you get it from?” I am definitely a fan and would highly recommend!” — Nevabeme

“I have to say that I am usually very skeptical and critical of online products like this – but this product is LEGIT! I ordered the Coconut Whipped Shea and it it is amazing! The product is light and airy and it melts into your skin without being greasy. It leaves my skin moisturized and soft. The scent is also light and pleasant. I am so happy that I tried it. I have 2 children with dry skin/eczema issues who both really like this product. It does not irritate their skin and they love the texture. Well worth the money if you want a quality product!” — Karen Draper

“I liked the light weight texture of this coconut whipped butter. It glided over my skin like a satin sheet of moisture. I bought this for hair growth, and for this horrible excema flare up in a new place now… My neck! ( Grr) I noticed that the excema is healing there after using this product there. Thanks for great products, info, and service.” — C. Horton
