Shea butter is a gentle and effective moisturiser. It contains oleic acid, a saturated fatty acid which is highly compatible with the sebum naturally produced by our skin, which means it’s readily absorbed and is said to help the absorption of other active ingredients. The high fatty acid content of shea butter also makes it an excellent additive to soap, shampoos, anti-aging creams, cosmetics, lotions, and massage oils. Combine with coconut oil and castor oil for a luxury and fluffy soap.
