While researching ingredients for our deodorant bars I stumbled upon an amazing butter. Sal or Shorea Butter as it's sometimes called, is obtained from the fruit of the Sal tree which grows in India. The oil is extracted from the fruit seeds and then further refined to produce a light colored butter with little to no odor. The butter is often used for cooking and interestingly enough, is also used as a substitute for cocoa butter in manufacturing. Sal Butter is chemically similar to Kokum Butter but when melted, shares similar properties to Argan Oil because of the velvety smooth feeling it gives to the skin. With its low melt point and excellent moisturizing properties is it any wonder we chose it as one of our ingredients for our solid lotion bars?
