Note: this body butter is very different than my usual body butters. It's more like a thick lotion or cream and includes water in the recipe, which means it requires a preservative. The addition of water is what gives it a more lotion-like feel.
These body butters are rich and creamy and easily scoopable from the glass jar. It has more of a lightweight feel due to the addition of water, than a typical body butter and includes added glycerin. An emulsifier is used to allow the water and the oils to blend together nicely and not separate.
These body butters are packaged as shown, with a handwritten label. The label does NOT include the ingredients, so please review the ingredients below.
Ingredients: Water, Rice Bran Oil, BTMS-50 (a conditioning emulsifier), Avocado Oil, Coconut Oil, Glycerin, Shea Oil, Stearyl Alcohol (co-emulsifier derived from coconut oil), Sodium Lactate (vegetable-derived liquid salt), Chamomile Extract, Optiphen (a preservative), Vitamin E Oil. Scented versions also contain essential oils.
Choose from the following scents:
The Minimalist is a perfect body butter for those that are sensitive to scents or for those that want to use their own scent (instead of having your body butter clash with your scent!).
Bergamot Lime is a lovely, light uplifting scent that is quickly becoming one of my favorite essential oil blends! I've used bergaptene-free bergamot and distilled lime essential oils to reduce photosensitivity (which causes skin to be sensitive to sunlight). Please be cautious if you apply this body butter right before heading out in the sun though...
About Me All my products are handmade by me in very small batches in my studio in Longmont, Colorado. My soap is cold process soap, which means that I make the recipe from scratch with full control of all the ingredients. Each bar of soap cures for 4 to 6 weeks. This ensures that all the water has evaporated and leads to a harder bar of soap that will last longer.
