Ok, so what are some opinions on which is better between Shea and cocoa butter and why do you feel that way? I really like cocoa butter, but have never had the opportunity to see or work with Shea butter.
Not much different for me. They both lend a creaminess to the lather, just the CB bars feel little more luxurious. Also, Shea bars make my hubby break out while the CB bars don't. No one else has that issue though.
Aye, but you do mention using cocoa butter in soap. I think a lot of people choose to use butters in soap because they like the butters in other products, but it doesn't always work that way
Obsidian, is there a certain smell to Shea butter as well that contributes to the scent of body butters, etc?
And is the creamier lather in soap extremely noticeable?
