Shea Butter Question

by Michele
(United States)

If my soap recipe calls for shea butter - do I use refined or unrefined? Please advise.


You can use's up to you. I think the unrefined has a stronger smell and is a bit greyish in colour whereas the refined has a mild scent and is a pale cream in colour.

Good luck,
