Recently we added Acai Butter to our catalog, and we have received several questions about what products can be made with this fun butter. Our response? Use it anywhere you would use other similar butters such as Shea, Mango, Almond or Olive Butters. Today, I’ll show you how to make our Lotion Bar Recipe with Acai Butter instead of Shea Butter.

Weigh all ingredients.

Weigh all ingredients into your microwave safe container. Microwave using shorts bursts of time until all of the ingredients are melted. It took me about 2-1/2 minutes, stirring about every 30 seconds. Once all the ingredients have been melted, pour into your lotion bar tubes or molds. Allow to cool completely before capping or removing from molds. The final lotion bar will be a beautiful tan color. This recipe will fill 9 Lotion Bar Tubes and each tube will contain approximately 0.64 ounces of product.

Notes:
There are specks of the Acai Seed in this butter, so don’t be alarmed by any particles that will settle down on the bottom of your microwave safe container.

If you would like to add a fragrance, use our Fragrance Calculator to calculate the amount of fragrance you want. Simply choose the “Lotion, Cream and Body Butter” product option and the weight of the complete recipe for the first step, then choose the fragrance or essential oil of your choice and click on the “Calculate” button on the bottom of the screen.

Merry Christmas!

2015 Note: Acai Butter has been discontinued since this blog post was originally written in 2009. Excellent alternatives for Acai Butter would be Shea, Mango, Almond or Olive Butters as well as an other butters/oils that are solid at room temperature but not brittle.

About Andee

I'm a twenty something soap snob. I've grown up with hand made soaps and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!
