Light Green Tea Latte Cream 3


While I’m sure you know that I’m the Coffee addict around here you probably didn’t know that Taylor is our Green Tea junkie. As we just recently released the Green Tea Butter, I had to make a body cream to give Taylor and our other tea junkies.

I used the Coffee Butter Latte Cream recipe. I used Green Tea Butter instead of the Coffee Butter and substituted the Sodium Lactate and Isopropyl Myristate for the Liquid Glycerin so I could make a lighter cream.

Collect needed items:

Ingredients
Green Tea Butter
Avocado Oil
Red Raspberry Seed Oil
Conditioning Emulsifier
Stearic Acid
Water (I’m using Reverse Osmosis Water)
Vitamin E Natural
Sodium Lactate
Isopropyl Myristate
Preservative of choice (I’m going to use Optiphen)
Fragrance Oil of Choice (I’m going to use Green Tea Fragrance Oil)
Equipment
Microwave safe container for weighing ingredients
Scale
Transfer Pipettes
Spoons
Immersion Blender
Containers for the finished products (I’m using the I’m using the 2 oz Clear PET Low Profile Jars, Size 58 with Size 58 Straight Black Lids.)

Recipe:

Recipe in ounces:

1.41 oz Green Tea Butter
0.99 oz Avocado Oil
0.21 oz Red Raspberry Seed Oil
0.85 oz Conditioning Emulsifier
0.63 oz Stearic Acid

0.53 oz Isopropyl Myristate
12.35 oz Water
0.07 oz Vitamin E Natural
0.14 oz Optiphen

6 grams Red Raspberry Seed Oil
24 grams Conditioning Emulsifier
18 grams Stearic Acid
5 grams Sodium Lactate
15 grams Isopropyl Myristate

2 grams Vitamin E Natural

Recipe in Percentages

8.1% Green Tea Butter
5.7% Avocado Oil
1.2% Red Raspberry Seed Oil
4.9% Conditioning Emulsifier

1.0% Sodium Lactate
3.0% Isopropyl Myristate
70.9% Water

Weigh all ingredients except the Vitamin E Natural, Optiphen and Green Tea Fragrance Oil into the microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add Vitamin E Natural, Optiphen and Green Tea Fragrance Oil once the temperature drops enough that you don’t feel like you are burning your hands when moving the mixing bucket. Blend until completely mixed. Pour into jars and allow to cool completely. Cap the jars.

Notes: This recipe makes approximately 17 fl oz of cream.

I’m so excited about the Green Tea Butter. Where would you use this fun new butter?

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!

    MMS Green Tea FO is one of my favorites! I really like avocado oil and red raspberry seed oil, so, even tho I haven’t tested the Green Tea Butter, I just know this makes a wonderful cream! I’m putting it on my “TO DO” list for Christmas gifts.

    THANKS!

    I just received ”Orange Butter Fixed Oil” and needed to just use it right away! So – I used this recipe substituting the ”Green Tea Butter” with the Orange Butter and substituting the Avocodo Oil with Grape Seed Oil and replacing the Fragrance OIl with Valencia Orange Essential Oil (1.5 ml.). What a nice result! This basic recipe is so nice – the cream has a wonderful consistency and has a pleasing ”after application” feel. And the recipe is easy – love it! I’m getting so impressive – – – thanks to you!
