And that begins with 33% organic shea butter, loads oforganic extra virgin olive oil, and organic extra virgin coconut butter. What you get is an emollient bar that soothes and comforts your skin while you wash without leaving a yucky film. And because people are important, our soap is made by handby a human the old fashioned way, not a machine. Scented with four African calming essential oils.

Get super fresh skin without the dry, itchiness that accompanies most soap bars. Commercially manufactured soap bars, even those that claim to be all natural, are often made with irritating chemicals and allergy causing synthetic fragrance. In order to make a cheap bar that bubbles well they are often made with a high coconut content. Coconut is a drying oil. The combination of large amounts of coconut oil, fragrance and poor quality oils creates soap that is harsh on skin. Our soap is made using only all natural scents and the highest quality of virgin olive oil, virgin coconut butter and 33% shea butter. This emollient combination makes a soap which is gentle on the skin and leaves the skin feeling soft, not stripped.
Commercially made soap, whether natural or not, is usually made from premade soap pellets coming from countries like India. Big companies give tell the manufacturer what they want to add as far as color and fragrance. A die is made and the pellets are pressed into perfect shaped bars and stamped with logos. Some of these soaps are pretty nice. However, the natural glycerin in the soap is usually extracted to sell because glycerin can be resold for a good amount of money. Taking the natural glycerin out of soap produces a harsh soap that dries out the skin. And despite these soaps being called shea butter soap, very little shea butter is actually in the soap. We insist that in order to produce a superior soap for our customers we must handmake it in our factory the old fashioned way. The result is a superior soap that cleans while nurturing the body's mantle.
Rather than replacing human labor with machines we employ and train people to make our moisture rich soap bars. Hiring people over machines has always been a priority for Shea Terra Organics. As machines and computers take over our daily lives more and more people are finding themselves without work. This system will eventually backlash as less and less people will have the money to purchase the goods the machines are making. Purchasing handmade soap is an important way to support soap makers who in turn use your money to support their families.
