Shea butter substitute

by Anonymous

Is there any oils/ butters that can be substituted for shea butter in cold process soaps?


Answer:

Visit my page on Soap Making Oils and scroll down to the heading "Love that creamy lather". There you will find many choices of oils and butters that can be used to replace shea butter in a recipe.

There are probably many more that could be used as well...visit SoapCalc and check out the properties of the different oils until you find some that contain similar values.

Don't forget that you will need to run the recipe through a lye calculator once you decide on the oil you will be using in order to get the correct amount of lye needed.
