Hydrating Body Butter Sticks

Lotion vs. Body Butter

There are DIY moisturizers for every skin type and skill level. If you&#;re on the hunt for the perfect recipe, this post can help. It goes over the difference between lotion and body butter. It also includes recipes to help you get started.

Lotion is created by combining oil and water with an emulsifier. Body butter is a simple mixture of butter and oil that&#;s whipped until fluffy.

Lotion
A typical recipe is % distilled water, % stearic acid, % emulsifying wax, and the rest is oil and butter. Those ingredients are heated and combined with a stick blender.

At its core, lotion is fairly simple. However, all the options can complicate the process. There are several emulsifiers and co-emulsifiers to choose from, and you can use alternative liquids in place of distilled water. The oils and butters you choose will affect the texture of the recipe. You can also include specialized additives like glycerin, honeyquat, and DL-Panthenol. Learn more about formulating lotion recipes in this post.

Another factor to consider is the potential for mold growth. That can happen with any water-based recipe if it&#;s not handled properly. Before making lotion, you&#;ll need to disinfect all your tools in a 5% bleach and distilled water solution. That includes spoons, bottles, bowls &#; anything that will come in contact with the ingredients. Then, wipe the tools dry with clean paper towels.

You&#;ll need to add a preservative at % of the total weight of the lotion. Optiphen and Phenonip are both good options. They help prevent mold and bacteria and extend the shelf life of the lotion. Learn more about preservatives in this post.

No matter what ingredients you choose for your lotion, the water gives it a lightweight consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin. That makes it great for both the body and face, and it also works for multiple skin types. If your skin is oily, you can add more water and use lightweight oils like rosehip and lingonberry seed. For dry skin, try a moisturizing butter like shea.

If you&#;re ready to give lotion a try, check out these recipes:

Body butter
If your skin is very dry or sensitive, body butter is a great option. It couldn&#;t be simpler to make &#; just add butter to a bowl and whip until it&#;s fluffy. You can choose any one you like. For a lighter feeling on the skin, try avocado or lavender butter. More moisturizing options include shea or turmeric shea butter. You can also use harder butters like cocoa, you&#;ll just need to melt them before whipping. Learn more about butters in this post.

We like to add a lightweight oil like avocado, cucumber seed, or argan to the recipe. It softens the butter and helps it glide onto the skin easily. We recommend about 2 ounces per pound to start. If you prefer a more a balm-like texture, you can also add beeswax. Start with 1 teaspoon of melted beeswax per pound and go from there.

Because body butter doesn&#;t contain water and likely won&#;t get any splashed in during use, it doesn&#;t need an emulsifier or a preservative. You can disinfect your tools if you want to be extra safe or if you plan to sell it.

Body butter has a heavier, more hydrating feeling than lotion. It&#;s great for dry patches like elbows, hands, and feet. However, it may be too heavy for the face.

Body butter can feel greasy on the skin. Arrowroot powder helps &#; it cuts the oily texture and helps the recipe absorb more quickly. It also gives it a light and fluffy consistency. Start with 1 teaspoon of arrowroot per pound of butter and test it on the skin. If you want more, add in 1 teaspoon increments until you like the way it feels.

Here are some recipes to try:

Sunday Night Spotlight: Cocoa Butter

Cocoa butter is a hard vegetable fat with a distinct, chocolate-y aroma that is extracted from the cocoa bean. A major ingredient in chocolate, cocoa butter is commonly used in bath and body products due to its skin-loving properties. Because of its hard texture and warm smell, cocoa butter makes a fabulous addition to soap, lip products, body butters and more.

Final

Cocoa butter is available in two varieties: deodorized cocoa butter and non-deodorized. Naturally, cocoa butter has a deep eggshell color and a warm, chocolate smell. Deodorized cocoa butter is deodorized via steam injected into the melted cocoa butter to &#;drive off&#; the components which contribute to the odor. The product is then treated with diatomaceous earth (clays) which remove the color agents. The result is a butter that is lighter in smell and color. When deciding between the two, consider how your project will be affected by the color and smell of cocoa butter. Because of its naturally chocolatey scent, cocoa butter can hide some delicate fragrances, so keep that in mind when working with more faint fragrances.

Cocoa butter has a high melting point of approximately – °F which makes it brittle at room temperature. When melting cocoa butter for beauty recipes, it’s best to temper it (as you do with chocolate) to prevent crystallization. Cocoa butter tends to crystallize due to its fatty acid profile. Simply put, the fats in cocoa butter melt and solidify at different temperatures, which can lead to fatty acids forming large clumps. To read more about why cocoa butter crystallizes, click here. Tempering the cocoa butter helps ensure your final product (lip butters in particular) is smooth, not grainy. However, in cold process soap, no tempering is needed.

In cold process soap, cocoa butter adds firmness and moisture to the bar. We recommend using cocoa butter at 15% or less; any higher may lead to cracking in the final product. Both palm-free recipes, the Queen of Hearts and Layered Lilac Loofah Cold Process soaps contain cocoa butter to give the bars hardness. In the Espresso Shot Cold Process and Natural Colorant Taiwan Swirl tutorials, cocoa butter is used for moisture and firming abilities.

Due to its moisturizing abilities, cocoa butter makes a great addition to leave-on body products. Because of its hard texture, cocoa butter is perfect for creating thick-textured body butters and creams. In the Moisturizing Heel Butter, cocoa butter is used to help create a firm yet spreadable texture that&#;s perfect for cracked, dry heels. Cocoa butter is also used in the Bramble Baby Belly Butter and Everything Balm, two leave-on creams that are both hydrating.

Looking for even more leave-on body products featuring cocoa butter? We&#;ve got you covered! The Mango Avocado Balmy Salve uses a combination of both hard butters like cocoa butter, and luxurious soft oils such as jojoba oil to create a creamy and skin-loving product. The Soothing Lavender Breast Balm has a similar texture to petroleum jelly, and is scented with soothing Hungarian Lavender Essential Oil. In the Lotion Bar Love tutorial, micas and Summer Fling Fragrance Oil are used to create a lotion bar that&#;s both colorful and fruity.

If lips are feeling dry and cracked, cocoa butter gives lip balms a firm and luxurious texture. In the Vanilla Latte Lip Balm tutorial, cocoa butter and coffee butter come together to create a silky texture and naturally delicious smelling lip product. It smells like a mocha!

What is your favorite way to use cocoa butter? Personally, I love using it in my cold process soap recipes for firmness and moisturizing abilities!

Sunday Night Spotlight: Shea Butter

Skin-loving, luxurious and downright decadent, top product formulators can&#;t get enough of Shea Butter! Over the last few years  Shea Butter has grown in popularity in the bath & beauty product scene. With its versatility in soap, lotion and lip balm, it&#;s easy to see why.

Bramble Berry Shea Butter is a soft solid with an off-white to ivory color, and has a faint odor. It contains 4 &#; 9% unsaponifiables (additional components in the fats and oils that can&#;t be fully converted into soap), which means it&#;s an excellent skin-loving ingredient in cold process soap. It&#;s a popular additive in salves and lotions given its emollient and moisturizing qualities. Shea butter may even provide some medical benefits too, as some of its components are reported to have anti-inflammatory properties.

In soap, Shea Butter does not contribute to lather or hardness (so it&#;s basically a super luxe additive), and the recommended usage rate is typically 10% or less. However, you can use up to % Shea Butter in balms and salves.

These are just a small snapshot of what you can do with shea butter. You can add it to nearly any recipe to give your products a little boost of skin-softening power!

How to Make Pink Peony Body Butter - Bramble Berry DIY Kit

Turmeric Body Butter

DIY Matcha Green Tea Body Butter

This creamy DIY Matcha Green Tea Body Butter is packed full of green-tea goodness. The base is shea butter, which has a soft texture that&#;s perfect for whipping into a smooth texture. Then, Matcha Green Tea Butter is added. This new butter is a combination of sweet almond oil, vegetable oil, and matcha green tea powder. It gives the body butter a light green color and antioxidant properties.

For extra antioxidant power, a dash of green tea extract is whipped into the butter. Matcha Tea Latte Fragrance Oil gives the butter a creamy, green matcha scent. Once all the ingredients are mixed, arrowroot powder helps reduce the greasy feel of the butter. That being said, because this is made with only oils and butters, it does have a heavier, oilier feel than a lotion.

DIY Matcha Green Tea Body Butter

Because this butter does not contain any water, it does not require a preservative. If you&#;d like to be extra safe though, you can add an oil-soluble preservative like Optiphen at 1%. We recommend using a preservative if you&#;re storing the product in the shower, or someplace where it may come into contact with water.
