SHEA BUTTER SOAP
ABOUT THE SOAP
All of our soaps have a touch of shea butter in them. This bar has an extra boost of shea butter. Scented with essential oils of lavender, lemon and lemongrass. Pretty lavender buds dot the soap. Feel so soothing on the skin. The shea butter we use is the white, refined type. No nutty scent to interfere with the essential oils.
$4.50 bar – shea butter bar soap
THE SOAP STORY
We created the shea butter bar before we started adding shea butter to all the soaps. At the time we started selling it, customers flocked to it because it was our only soap that included it. When we reformulated our base to include shea butter in everything, we had to do something to make this bar different. The answer was simple – MORE shea butter!
ABOUT SHEA BUTTER
Shea butter, also known as karite butter, is a cream-colored fatty substance made from the nuts of karite nut trees that grow in the savannah regions of West and Central Africa. Karite trees, or shea trees, are not cultivated. They grow only in the wild, and can take up to 50 years to mature (they live up to 300 years!). In most parts of West Africa, destruction of the shea tree is prohibited because this little nut provides a valuable source of food, medicine, and income for the population. In fact, shea butter is sometimes referred to as “women’s gold” in Africa, because so many women are employed in the production of shea butter.
