Creamed Shea Body Butter

I’ve been interested in trying to make a creamed or whipped body butter. We receive many questions about this product and I wanted to try it out. In the hot months of summer, it is hard to ship a creamed body butter as it easily melts. This can cause quite the dilemma when trying to ship samples and I left the project for a time that cooler weather would help, not hinder. This was a fast project to make, so let’s go check out the ingredients!

Shea Butter: I wanted to make this really simple and so I chose Shea Butter as it seems to be a common ingredient in creamed butters.

Liquid Shea Oil: To follow the Shea Butter theme, I used Liquid Shea Oil as it allows for slight softening of the finished product and therefore, easier application.

Vitamin E Acetate: I wanted to extend the shelf life of this product by slowing the oxidation process. Vitamin E Acetate was my first choice!

Natural Vanilla Oil: Following my craving for baked holiday goods, I used Natural Vanilla Oil in this creamed body butter. Oh my!
