This luxurious body butter base is full of skin moisturizing 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 leaves 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.

Bought this a while ago and forgot I had it! Mixed it up with several different scents for Christmas gifts! Everyone loved it ! Lavender Grapefruit was the favorite!!!
Will reorder for sure!!! :)
I'm thrilled with this base. My face is sensitive to just about everything, and I was a little hesitant to try this on my face with the additional elements that allow customizing. But I have to say, straight from the jar I experienced absolutely no redness or itching, just lovely soft skin. My kids love it too, they think it smells like blueberries and who am I to argue? I am definitely getting the bigger jar next time, so worth it!
This is so easy to use and absorbs quickly into my skin. I've tried it with several different scents and they've all turned out wonderful. I'd like to try and color this, but am not sure what kind of pigments I should use.... also will this base go bad?
Tried this out, was absolutely amazing on its own, however the batch that I fragranced turned horribly rancid. One was with oatmeal, Milk & Honey, that one smelled rotten after a day, then another batch with lavender vanilla went bad after about 2 weeks. I also did some with the sweetened cranberry fo, and that one seems to be doing just fine.
Even though I am a longtime and faithful BB customer, as I rule I just do not leave reviews, however, I just spent the day working with this product for the very first time.
I have been wanting to make some really luxurious butters and scrubs, but have not been happy with the many DIY recipes I have tried over the last few months.
When I saw that BB has this Shea Butter Base, I knew I just had to give it a try!!!
This product is very easy to work with.
Wanting to make several different projects with the one bucketful that I ordered, the first thing I made was a very luxurious, yet very rustic Oatmeal Body Polish in Pumpkin Spice Latte (BB's Turkish Mocha and Pumpkin Spice FO's)
After I did the whole melting and fragrancing thing, I let it cool and added very finely ground oatmeal, sugar and BB's Walnut Powder...OMGOSH!!! It is to die for!!!
Special tip...use a stick blender to whip it all up...It really improves the texture and consistency and blends this together really well!!!
