Project Description

Extra rich and creamy, this body butter is great for extremely dry skin.

It's scented with Cocoa Butter Cashmere Fragrance Oil, which is a soft and comforting blend of tonka, sandalwood, amber, and vanilla.

The blend of avocado and cocoa butters create a creamy and dense texture. We love using this butter on dry patches like the elbows and knees. While this butter does not container water, a touch of optiphen is added to prevent mold and bacterial growth. It is an optional ingredient.

Instructions

Cocoa Cashmere Body Butter Project

  • Skill Level: Beginner
  • Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: About 16 oz. of butter

It's scented with Cocoa Butter Cashmere Fragrance Oil, which is a soft and comforting blend of tonka, sandalwood, amber, and vanilla.

The blend of avocado and cocoa butters create a creamy and dense texture. We love using this butter on dry patches like the elbows and knees. While this butter does not container water, a touch of optiphen is added to prevent mold and bacterial growth. It is an optional ingredient.

You will need:

  • Two 8 oz. Bail Jars
  • 14 oz. Avocado Butter
  • 2 oz. Cocoa Butter Wafers
  • 1 oz. Jojoba Oil
  • 4 mL Cocoa Butter Cashmere Fragrance Oil
  • 1 oz. Arrowroot Powder
  • 5 mL Optiphen

Follow these steps:

1

Place 2 ounces of cocoa butter wafers and 1 ounce of jojoba oil into a heat-safe container. Melt in the microwave using 30 second bursts. Be careful when removing the container - it may be quite hot. 

2

Add 14 ounces of avocado butter to a large mixing bowl. Use a hand or stand mixer to whip the butter until completely smooth. Add about 1/4 of the melted cocoa butter mixture and continue to whip for about 30 seconds. 

3

Continue adding small amounts of the melted cocoa butter until it's gone, whipping between each addition. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure everything is thoroughly mixed.  

4

Add 5 mL of Cocoa Butter Cashmere Fragrance Oil and mix thoroughly. Then, fold in 1 ounce of arrowroot powder with a spatula or spoon. Once it's mostly incorporated, use the hand or stand mixer to fully mix. Finally, add 5 mL of optiphen and whip to incorporate.

5

To achieve a slightly fluffier texture, place the bowl in the fridge for about 15-30 minutes and allow the butter to cool to about 70-75° F. Remove from the fridge and whip again for about 30-60 seconds. 

6

Spoon or pipe the butter into jars and enjoy! Store it in a dry, cool place. If you live in a very hot climate, you may want to store this butter in the fridge to prevent melting and to retain the fluffy texture.
