Butters For Homemade Lotion
Butters For DIY Lotion
Homemade lotions, body butters, and skin balms are an indulgent treat. They feel luxurious on the skin and smell wonderful. As gifts, they’re a wonderful way to help a friend or family member take care of themselves. As products, they’re highly sought after.
Butters are vegetable fats that are solid at room temperature. Some solidify naturally, and others are hydrogenated. These butters are a wonderful ingredient for DIY lotion projects, and essential for body butters. They are moisturizing and help thicken your final product to get the consistency and feel you want in your final product.
We carry such a wide range of butters that you’re sure to find one that’s perfect for your handmade lotion or body butter.
Shea butter is soft, moisturizing, and feels luxurious on the skin. We carry refined shea butter, which is white and neutral smelling, and raw shea butter, which is yellowish in color and has a natural smoky scent.
Cocoa butter is wonderful for body butters and skin balms. It has a melting point of 86 degrees fahrenheit, so it melts in contact with skin. It’s a very firm butter, so it will thicken lotions and butters and is great in firm products, like balms and lotion bars. Cocoa butter has a natural chocolate scent. If you worry that will interfere with the fragrance you’ve chosen, we also offer a deodorized cocoa butter. Mango butter has similar moisturizing properties to cocoa butter, plus lots of vitamin E and vitamin C. Our aloe butter is a mix of aloe extract and coconut oil. It is delightfully moisturizing and carries all the benefits of coconut oil too. It’s soft at room temperature so it spreads onto the skin easily.
No matter your DIY lotion project or your skin type, our collection of butters will have exactly what you need to make the perfect lotion, butter, or balm.
