A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap (though this depends on the combination of oils). Also, olive oil in soap can get a bit sticky sometimes but generally is a great oil for soap. Olive oil is imported generally from Spain and the European region.
Stearic Acid is a natural occurring "fatty acid" from vegetable or animal sources. We only use vegetable source stearic acid. Stearic acid is often used for its moisturizing and hardening benefits in soap and this is why we like "shea butter", which is high in stearic acid. This product also helps "pull oils together" in the soap making process."Allergy Warning: Contains Shea Butter (from shea nuts)." It has come to our attention that there are individuals (rare) who will have a reaction to skin contact with nuts, this warning is for those people. Though this may only (possibly) effect individuals with extreme nut allergies (those who are allergic to the actual skin contact with shea butter/shea nuts) we feel obligated to post this notice.
