The Non-Greasy Secret

What sets this body butter apart is its light, airy texture and quick-absorbing formula, leaving your skin moisturized without the greasy aftermath. Using only vegan, cruelty-free, and organic ingredients, this recipe promises a raw, pure experience that’s long-lasting and suitable for all skin types, including sensitive baby skin.

Ingredients You’ll Love:

  • 1/2 cup Mango Butter: Known for its non-greasy feel, mango butter is light, moisturizing, and rich in nutrients, making it a perfect base.
  • 1/4 cup Jojoba Oil: Mimicking the skin’s natural oils, jojoba oil absorbs quickly, hydrating without leaving an oily residue.
  • 1/4 cup Arrowroot Powder (Optional): This natural thickener helps reduce the greasiness and leaves your skin feeling silky.
  • A few drops of Essential Oil (Optional): Choose a gentle, skin-safe essential oil like lavender or chamomile for a soothing fragrance and added benefits.

Tools You’ll Need:

  • Double boiler or a glass bowl over a pot of simmering water
  • Hand mixer or stand mixer
  • Airtight container for storage (glass or metal preferred for a plastic-free choice)

Let’s Get Whipping:

  1. Gentle Melting: In your double boiler, gently melt the mango butter, ensuring low heat to keep the goodness intact.
  2. Mix in the Magic: Once melted, take the butter off the heat and stir in the jojoba oil. If you’re using essential oils, now’s the time to add a few drops.
  3. Cooling Phase: Let the mixture cool slightly before moving it to the fridge. Wait until it’s just beginning to solidify but is still somewhat soft.
  4. The Whipping Ceremony: With your hand mixer or stand mixer, whip the semi-solid butter into a fluffy, cloud-like texture. If you’re using arrowroot powder, sprinkle it in during this stage to help cut down on any residual greasiness.
  5. Jar of Joy: Spoon your whipped creation into an airtight container. Your body butter is now ready to soothe and moisturize.
  6. Indulge or Gift: Use this whipped wonder to pamper your skin, or fill a beautiful jar and add it to a gift box as a thoughtful, handmade present.

Perfect for Every Occasion:

This whipped body butter is not just a treat for your skin; it’s a versatile gift that fits almost any occasion. Add it to a bridesmaid gift box for a touch of handmade luxury, bundle it up for a birthday or self-love gift, or pair it with other gentle items for a new mum or baby.
