The base is bright white in color. The soap is made from our White M&P Glycerin Soap Base with Shea Butter added.
The exotic-sounding butter originates from the Karite Nut tree (also known as the Mangifolia tree) found in the savannahs of central Africa. Shea Butter is a product of the oil extracted from Karite nuts, which are produced once a year, and has been known to be used by healers for thousands of years for a multitude of skin ailments.
Shea butter has soothing, moisturizing, and protecting effects. This natural product aids in protection against UV rays because of its content in cinnamic acid.

Learn to Use
DO NOT allow the Soap to boil.
Once the soap is in liquid form, add your Fragrance or Essentials Oils. Usually no more than one (1) tsp per Lb of Soap Base is all you need. Do not add scent until the soap has cooled below the fragrance's flash point. Other additives may be incorporated at this stage.
Pour into your mold and let rest until solid, silicone molds work best for most applications, wood block molds are great for bulk quantities. Once soap has fully cooled, un-mold and wrap, your soaps are now ready!.
