Oh My Butter! An Exciting Challenge for Soft Skin 2


Last October, I ran a 10-day Soft Skin Challenge and I was asked for a different recipe without Lanolin. After making my test batches, losing and finding the recipe not twice, but three times, I finally got a chance to get into the blog kitchen to make this exciting recipe with you.

Finished tins of Oh My Butter!

I picked a few ingredients that are noted for aiding skin rejuvenation and repair. This luxurious butter will feel great on your dry, scaly skin without feeling extremely greasy. I quickly used my tester tin, and I was very pleased with my smooth skin.

Application Notes: This is not going to be a creamy and easy-to-apply lotion or cream. This is a solid, stick-like butter that will need a combination of body heat and friction to be applied.

Ready for the recipe? I’m excited to share it with you!

About Andee

I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade 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!

    I’ve never used some of those odd butters-green tea, avocado or aloe I’m wondering if on my labels I need to add all of those extra ingredients–they had coconut oil, soybean oil, almond oil. Do those butters come with ingredient labels. This sounds like an incredible product–I can’t wait to make it. I just ordered what I didn’t have–which surprisingly was quite a few items. Thanks so much.

      Each of these oils does have an INCI name for the addition. If you use the percentages from the SDS and combine it with all the ingredients you can list single entries (such as soybean oil) but if working out the percentages is not your thing then just use the INCI name in order of greatest quantity listed first. I am sure you will love these butters!
