Description 

This luxurious body butter base is full of skin nourishing oils such as shea, avocado, and rice bran. As if that wasn't enough, we also included calming chamomile extract and vitamin E for even more skin conditioning benefits! This body butter absorbs easily leaving skin hydrated without a greasy feel.

Our creamy body butter base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch! As with any lotion base recommended fragrance usage rate is 1% - 2% or about 0.2 oz in 16 oz. of lotion.

We've packaged this base in a wide mouth container making it easy to scoop out and repackage. It is definitely too thick to use with a pump so we recommend a jar for packaging. We love how classy this body butter looks in our 8 oz glass bail jar or short 8 oz plastic bail jar.

To use this lotion base - Warm the lotion base to 130°F in a fully disinfected container (5% bleach water or rubbing alcohol will disinfect your mixing containers). The lotion base will become the consistency of a melted milkshake. Add your fragrance at the recommended usage rate (typically .1 ounces of fragrance per 16 ounces of lotion) and stir until fully incorporated. Pour carefully into your containers. Let the lotion sit until it is room temperature prior to putting the cap on. The preservative system in this lotion starts to degrade at 176 degrees. Please ensure your lotion gets no warmer than 130°F during the heating phase.

At what rate to Add extra oils?
Does this product contain extra emulsifier? Can I add extra oils/butters? If so, at what rate? Thanks, Della

Love, Love Love this Base!
I love the convenience and ease of this product. Love the feel of my skin after using this lotion, but am wondering if I HAVE to heat the base to 130 degree before adding scent and color? Can I just add them to the base without warming???

Hi Shelly! I'm so glad you love our Shea Body! For best results we recommend heating the base 130 degrees F. This allows the base to become a thinner consistency, making it easier to mix the fragrance and scent in. Without heating the Shea Body Butter first the fragrance and color would be difficult to easily and evenly incorporate into the base.

Where have you been all my life?!
This base is absolutely amazing! I used a coconut fragrance oil and it smells like you are putting on suntan lotion. My parents recently bought a very expensive product for their dry skin that is brought on by the chemo treatments; it is ok. However my mom tried this and says it is so much better! My only regret...not buying a bigger container. I will be making that purchase now.

Shea Body Butter Base
Love, Love, Love this Base! It is a little greasy when you first put it on but once it soaks into your skin, OH what a luxurious feel. My husband even noticed how soft my skin was and couldn't stop rubbing me. Will buy more:). Thanks for the free sample of Island Escape FO. Smells of pina colada and lasts. Yummy. Made a small batch of lotion by just mixing the FO directly into the base and mixed well and it turned out great! No heating required. It is real warm here in Texas so it may have been a temperature issue with the butter but it was just right for mixing :). Thank you so much! Quick question here: How long do the FO's last if kept in a cool dark area? Thanks, Sarah

Hi Sarah! I'm so glad you love our Shea Body Butter! We do too! We recommend using our fragrance oils within a year of purchase. However, they will not go bad in the sense that they will grow mold, bacteria, or go rancid (since they are not diluted in carrier oils). After a year, the scent may start to change, losing its top notes first (think citrus and floral). If the scent does start to change years down the road it's still 100% safe to use. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

I love it!
Body butter is rich and silky. Soaks right in. Not greasy. And now that I can personalize it with my favorite fragrances it is perfect! What a nice gift set this would make with matching soap.
