Fantastic Almond Butter Lotion


Our ultra refined Sweet Almond Butter is derived from sweet almonds (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis), specifically from the Mediterranean area. It is obtained by the cold pressing of selected fruits followed by a full refining process.

The natural oil contains essential fatty acids but also contains unsaponifiables. In your cosmetic formulations, we feel the behavior of Almond Butter is somewhat similar to that of Shea butter. It is a very soft butter with great spreadability, making it ideal for massage butters. It adds moisturizing attributes to creams, lotions, and bar soaps.

Today I’ll combine this marvelous butter with Olive Oil, Aloe Extract, and a few other things to make a lovely moisturizing lotion.

About Denise

I'm a crazy goat lady who got into making my own soap with goat milk, found MMS to order supplies, and now I get to combine my love of creating skin care products with a job to pay the feed bill. I live in Alaska and greatly enjoy the unique aspects of my northern home - summer days when it never gets dark and the Northern Lights dancing above in winter. Favorite scents include Wild Mint and Ivy, Rhubarb & Sugar Cane, and Eucalyptus Spearmint.
