I use Shorea in both HP Soap and lotion bars.
It is readily absorbed, leaves the skin smooth and hydrated without an oily or waxy feel.

This is the first time I have purchased Shorea Butter and I'm so happy with my purchase! I will definitely be getting more.

This is the first time I've used this butter. Unlike Shea or Cocoa butter, it keeps my lotion bars creamy and smooth even after several uses. I look forward to using this in some of my other products.

I found this butter while looking for another butter but tried it and it is so good for the skin and hair. I used it in my body butter and in my hair butter; love, love, love the softness this butter gives my body and hair.

I am so happy with this product, I use it in soap, lotion and lotion bars. It is an easy to work with product, it comes in a jar, compared to the other place I was getting it from, their product was in a bag. Bulk Apothecary packages to keep the butter safe from any spoilage.
