Support supple, smooth, healthier skin with Shea Butters from Maiga. Traditionally hand processed, Maiga contains pure, raw, 100% organic, Fair Trade shea butter and shea butter blends containing essential oils for a variety of skin and scent-satisfying choices. Used for thousands of years (more than two millennia), shea butter treats not only dry skin, but skin conditions including: Eczema, Psoriasis, dandruff, dermatitis, and stretch marks. Some people have also found shea butter effective for blemishes, scars, sunburn, wrinkles, irritation due to shaving or dry scalp, and pain caused by arthritis. An all-natural option that is safe for babies.
Maiga Shea Butter products are more than simply "fair & green." These ecologically responsible products support their African producers by following fair trade practices, and by forwarding 10% of their profits to provide food, healthcare and educational services to the women and children of the local communities involved.
Most of these products come in a jar, but the 1 pound economy pack and 2 pound value pack (which formerly came in bricks, vacuum-sealed in plastic) now come in square containers (with a lid) made of food-grade recyclable plastic, as shown in the final photo.

Maiga recommends the Shea Butter and Olive Oil type especially for the treatment and conditioning of the scalp and hair, as this combination is extremely moisturizing for them both, keeping them soft and smooth. It also helps the hair to regain its natural elasticity, promotes and stimulates natural hair growth, and prevents weak hair from falling out, breaking or fading.
Directions for using on hair: Apply directly to slightly damp hair and massage sparingly into the hair and scalp. Cover hair with a shower cap for 10 minutes, rinse or leave on overnight for best results.
