Product Description



Shea Butter is a skin superfood that comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Shea (Karite) tree. It is naturally rich in antioxidants, vitamins A, E and F and also offers UV protection (SPF ~6). PlantOrigin Shea Butter provides your skin with essential fatty acids and the nutrients necessary for boosting collagen and elastin production for soft and supple skin. Shea Butter has been used in Africa and other countries for years to improve skin and hair. Recognized as one of the most versatile natural beauty ingredients, it can easily become a part of your daily regimen. It has been used for years in everything from natural homemade lotion bars, original magnesium body butter, homemade lip balms and healing salves.


There are many different brands of Shea Butter in the market - it can be a challenge to decide which one is the best for you! While Shea Butter is known for its superior healing benefits, not all shea butter are created equal. Below you’ll find what you should look for in a high-quality shea butter.

100% PURE, UNREFINED & HANDMADE: Heating shea butter past a certain point through the refinement process strips out many of the therapeutic components and nutrients that are naturally present in Shea Butter. Our silky-smooth, creamy Shea Butter is 100% pure, unrefined and cold-pressed to ensure all of its nutrients and skincare properties are retained so you are able to reap all the highest benefits possible.

ORGANIC & FREE OF GMOs, CHEMICALS & ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS: To buy the highest-quality shea butter, it is important to ensure it is in fact organic and FREE of GMOs and other artificial ingredients. Our Unrefined Shea Butter is Organic & FREE of GMOs, preservatives, parabens, additives, and other artificial chemicals and ingredients - so you can use it with complete peace of mind!

RESPONSIBLY SOURCED FROM GHANA, AFRICA: Before you buy Shea Butter, it is essential to find out where it is sourced ethically. At PlantOrigin, we source our raw African Shea Butter from a wonderful women’s cooperative in Ghana who lovingly harvest the Shea nuts from indigenous Shea trees. Our process not only provides a dependable source of income for the women who are part of the co-op, it also contributes to the overall health of the local ecosystem and prevents soil erosion.

GRADE A, IVORY, HIGH-QUALITY & FRESH: The color of shea butter is a good indicator of its quality and nutritional value.  Because our Shea Butter is extracted from pure African shea nuts in Ghana WITHOUT heat or chemical alteration, it is ivory in color. But color is not the only indicator of quality. Our Shea Butter is also Grade A, meaning it has never been bleached or deodorized and is extracted from a higher quantity of shea nuts, making it naturally higher in nutrients compared to other brands. In fact it is so natural and high-quality that it even smells slightly nutty and earthy!

RICH SOURCE OF OMEGA FATTY ACIDS, ANTIOXIDANTS & VITAMINS A, E & F:  Because PlantOrigin Shea Butter is organic, Grade A and unrefined, it retains the most natural essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins, especially vitamins A and E, which are partially lost in the other grades.

NEVER TESTED ON ANIMALS & VEGAN-FRIENDLY: At PlantOrigin, we not only care about our customers, but the earth and all living beings on our planet. That’s why our organic shea butter is never tested on animals and vegan-friendly.


As with everything else, you must be careful about your source of shea butter. It’s easy to come across companies who claim their Shea butter as being organic, unrefined and advertised as a great source of income for  communities in West Africa. To make sure these claims have any truth to them, always look out for the appropriate stamps on the product.

Most shea butter brands available over cosmetic counters, pharmacies and stores are shea butter lotions. Inside the beautiful packaging, you may think it contains all Shea Butter, but in reality, shea butter is only an ingredient that makes up 2-5% of the actual product. Flip over the packaging, glance through the ingredients and you’ll see many other ingredients such as water, emulsifying waxes, preservatives, colorants, fragrances and other artificial ingredients.

At PlantOrigin, our Shea Butter only consists of one ingredient: 100% Pure, Unrefined, Grade A, Organic Shea Butter to deliver the highest amount of nutrients and healing potential.

Due to its purity and maximum nutritional value, it delivers the following features:

  • Naturally hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • Rich source of Vitamin A for skin regeneration and firmness
  • Boosts collagen and elastin synthesis to prevent wrinkles
  • Anti-aging - fights free radicals to repair oxidative stress
  • High in Vitamins E, F and omega fatty acids for increased moisture
  • High source of cinnamate - potent anti-inflammatory and UVB absorber
  • Natural anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory properties to prevent rashes
  • Prevents hyperpigmentation and diminishes age spots
  • Loaded with polyphenols - antioxidants with beauty benefits
  • Increases skin elasticity to prevent fine lines and stretch marks
  • Prevents sunburns and sun damage with natural SPF of 6-10
  • FREE of solvents such as hexane
  • Shelf life of 2 years when stored in a cool, dry place
  • Completely safe for men, women, young children and pregnant moms



The high concentration of natural vitamins and fatty acids in our Shea Butter makes it incredibly nourishing and moisturizing for the scalp and hair to help prevent dandruff. The high concentration of Vitamin E seals in moisture into the skin to prevent stretch marks, scarring and cellulite.  It’s also perfect for dry heels, hands, rough elbows and knees.*


Due to the presence of cinnamic acid and its other healing properties, PlantOrigin Shea Butter is a natural anti-inflammatory. One compound in particular, lupeol cinnamate, was found to reduce skin inflammation and even potentially helped avoid skin mutations, according to research. This also makes it beneficial for some people with acne.*


PlantOrigin Shea Butter aids in the skin’s natural collagen production and contains oleic, stearic, palmitic and linolenic acids that protect and nourish the skin. Because it is Grade A and unrefined, it offers superior anti-aging benefits. With long term use, many people report skin softening and strengthening as well as wrinkle reduction.*
