Our Body Butter in the Making
Our Body Butter is handmade, whipped with silky-smooth skin-loving oils. Here is a brief overview of how our luxurious Body Butter is created and what ingredients are in it. We take great pride in our finished product, which is handmade with love, just for you!
Our Body Butter is an emulsion that is water in oil (w/o). A w/o emulsion means you have small droplets of water dispersed in a medium of oils. So, the first 2 key ingredients in our Body Butter are water and oil and these are the main ingredients in any lotion or Body Butter [although lotion has a different balance of ingredients where lotion is an o/w, oil in water, which means droplets of oil into water, hence the difference in consistency]. Other products that are not emulsions of water and oil will not have water as one of their first ingredients and will tout that as a benefit over a product like ours. This is a sleight-of-hand kind of marketing trick, because in this case, those products aren’t comparable to ours, as they will be completely different.
· We Use
PURIFIED WATER – Free of toxins, microbes, & pollutants. Used to aid emulsion & dissolving the other ingredients. It’s commonly used in all lotions & all beauty products.
COCONUT OIL- Praised for anti-aging, it’s known to soften & moisturize very dry skin while protecting the skin from microbial infections. It’s also known to aid in repairing skin & giving it a healthy glow.
HIGH OLEIC SUNFLOWER OIL- It’s known to helps cells regenerate and is great for sunburnt skin and has anti-aging properties, because it forms a seal that helps skin retain moisture while allowing the skin to breathe. It is calming and moisturizing and is known to be effective against acne, eczema, inflammation, general irritations. It’s great for dry, dehydrated, & sensitive skin and it is antioxidant-rich.
COCOA BUTTER –Antioxidant-rich, it’s known to soothe sensitive skin and help save the skin from free-radical damage that causes aging. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids, which is why it's often touted for its ability to hydrate and nourish the skin and improve elasticity. The fat in cocoa butter forms a protective barrier over the skin to hold in moisture. Cocoa butter is also rich in natural plant compounds called phytochemicals, that aids skin in repair as well as calming scars.
EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL – Known as ‘liquid gold’ for the skin! Full of antioxidants, it helps protect from pre-maturing aging, restores skin smoothness, doesn’t clog pores, and protects from UV. It’s well known as an overall beauty booster!
GRADE A ORGANIC SHEA BUTTER- raw and pure, fair trade and sustainable farming made from Africa, coming from the Tree of Life [Shea Tree]; this nut is known to be anti-aging, skin smoothing, very moisturizing, and anti-wrinkle. It contains valuable vitamins, phytonutrients, and nutrients that make this date back in history as Cleopatra’s choice because it’s known to help skin problems, such as blemishes, wrinkles, sunburn, itching, small skin wounds, eczema, skin allergies, insect bites, frostbite, and other skin conditions.
JOJOBA OIL - known as a Miracle Oil for hydrating dry skin & balancing the body’s natural oils. It’s known to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. Comes from the seed of the Jojoba plant found in Arizona, California, & Mexico. It removes sticky buildup in your pores and is excellent for dry skin, and perfect to use full-body for all-over moisturization!
As you know, oil and water do not mix and therefore will separate, that is if you don't have the 3rd key ingredient - an emulsifier. An emulsifier is an agent that helps bind the water and the oil together in a formula, so it will not separate.
· We Use
EMULSIFYING WAX- is a very basic raw material in lotions. Safe, non-toxic, natural, it’s a white substance that helps oil and water mix by attracting them together. The wax helps the oils penetrate the skin, [since it holds the water and oil together] and helps the skin replace lost moisture.
GLYCERYL MONOSTEARATE- is a very basic raw material in creams - another emulsifier that is white, odorless, and sweet [commonly used in foods also]. It dissolves in water by absorbing it. Non-toxic, biodegradable, very “green”, your body will recognize this because it comes from vegetable oils.
CETYL ALCOHOL- Comes from coconuts! It’s an emulsion stabilizer and used to keep water and oils from separating. It also conditions and softens skin. It’s a long chain of organic alcohol, and at room temperature, it is a waxy, white solid.
Thickening Agents, We use a thickening agent to help attain the texture, viscosity, and spreadability that adds a silk-like feel when mixed with our natural oils.
· We Use
CARBOMER – a thickening agent that helps control viscosity & the flow of lotions. It’s cosmetic safe and is very safe for use on skin. It’s typically used in many organic skincare products.
STEARIC ACID – a thickening agent that is one of many fatty acids that occur naturally in various plants derivatives, it is found in cocoa butter. It is safe and beneficial to human health.
Preserving our Body Butter
The last necessary component of our Body Butter is the preservative. Because our formulation contains both oil and water, the preservative needs to protect both. Oils break down when they come in contact with oxygen and must be protected using an antioxidant. Water is susceptible to bacterial, fungal and yeast growth and must have an anti-microbial agent added to it.
· We Use
OPTIPHEN PLUS- an alternative for personal care products, that is found in some organic and natural products. It’s a globally approved preservative that is Paraben-FREE & Formaldehyde-FREE. It’s anti-microbial and prevents mold, bacteria, and fungal growth. It’s a natural preservative that is skin-safe and preferred for use in a high-quality product!
Fragrance Our Body Butter has scent added once it has cooled slightly, by stirring in our phthalate-free fragrance or essential oils.
Sterilization Finally, we make sure that all of our equipment is clean and sterilized throughout the entire process, from start to finish.
Once your product is home, you should be sure to only use clean, dry hands when handling your body butter or a little scoop spoon. Store our Body Butter at room temperature. Our Body Butter has a good year of shelf life. Our Body Butters are made freshly and within days to weeks of your purchase.
Our Body Butter Vs. Lotion Our Body Butter is about 2/3 oil phase (oils, butter, waxes) and 1/3 water phase (all water-soluble ingredients) while lotions are about 2/3 water phase and 1/3 oil phase. The amount of emulsifier and thickening agents we use are generally about 15%. Then our preservative is added at the right time to finish our luxurious handmade whipped Body Butter product.
We hope that you enjoy our body butter as much as we enjoy providing it for you.
