Shea Butter

FirstSeed Organics only supplies Grade A 100% unrefined shea butter. Unrefined means that the shea butter has been extracted and prepared without the use of chemicals or preservatives. Our shea butter is produced by hand the same way it has been done traditionally for centuries.

Our shea butter is 100% unrefined Grade A shea butter. Nothing else.

Shea butter keeps skin soft, reduces the appearance of stretch marks, restores the elasticity of the skin and offers relief from peeling and itchy skin amongst other benefits. It’s great for sealing in moisture in hair and soothing itchy, flaky scalp. Click on this link to see the many benefits of shea butter.

Yes, you can. Unrefined shea butter doesn’t contain chemical irritants known to dry out the skin. It is non-comedogenic and is gentle enough to use on all skin types including sensitive skin. Even babies! Unlike most tree nut products, it’s very low in the proteins that can trigger allergies.

We source our Shea Butter fairly and sustainably from women co-operatives in Northern Ghana.

Our shea butter is hand processed traditionally the way it has been done by local women for centuries.
