Shea Butter conditions, tones, and soothes the skin and is one of the best butters for skincare. Shea has high concentrations of fatty acids, vitamins and has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.

Shea butter is high in Stearic and Oleic acids and will produce a long-lasting hard soap with a stable conditioning lather.

How much shea butter in a soap recipe?

Some recipes go as high as 25% so the 3-5% is only a guide.
