Shea Butter Soap Recipe and Video Tutorial

Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter Soap
Live Stream Making Shea Butter Soap

If you have dry, itchy skin this is a great recipe to try and it’s palm free. With the combination of Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Coconut oil this soap creates a moisturizing and cleansing bar that is gentle on the skin. Shea Butter has one of the highest percentages of unsaponifables (properties that stay in the soap), it makes a really fantastic addition to many soap recipes.

Benefits of Shea Butter

Shea Butter is packed with vitamins A, E and F which are all excellent for the skin. Additionally the makeup of Shea butter encourages collagen production (you know the thing responsible for plumper skin…) There are additional benefits when you use raw, unrefined handmade Shea Butter. One of my favorite sources…my only source for Shea Butter comes from Baraka Shea Butter. Every purchase of this Shea Butter provides income and impact on families in Northern Ghana who make the Shea Butter. You can learn more about the company, their mission and impact here.
