Creamed Shea Body Butter 14

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!

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 need this! It’s been so dry this winter. Such a simple treat and I love that you used the vanilla oil to scent it!

    I love whipped body butters. Once I started using my own body butters, no more dry skin. Sad to say it took many, many years to figure this out. Never to old to learn!

    This looks yummy enough to eat! I’ll have to get some Shea Oil to try it out soon! Looks easy! Does it feel greasy or not so much? I’m curious about the texture and absorption.

      This is super easy to make. It is a little greasy and took time to absorb (it also depends on how much is used), but I found that it had a nice feeling on my feet and hands at the end of a long day!

    I can’t wait to try this recipe. I do a whipped body butter for my line, but have been wanting to do one that is a bit creamier and not as thick!

    How does a person get on the “tester” list. That Shea body butter sounds awesome and the vanilla favoring makes me think of my moms vanilla creme sauce. Good enough to eat.

      All samples are sent out with orders, so every order you receive will have one of the currently available blog samples. Sometimes you can request particular blog samples in your orders and we will do our best to send a sample along in your order.

    I’ve made a similar product and everyone loves it. I think your ratios and procedure are better than mine. The use of Liquid Shea Oil is a great idea!
