MORE DETAILS

Shea Butter is extracted from shea tree nuts and commonly found in many skin care products because of its moisturizing and anti-aging benefits. It has extremely powerful anti-inflammatory + antioxidant properties, which help moisturize dry skin and treat skin conditions like eczema. Delicious smelling Cocoa Butter helps heal the skin with a distinct chocolate-like scent. It combines strong antioxidants (including polyphenols aka disease fighters) and saturated fats to detoxify and lock in moisture to hydrate skin. Coconut Oil is an extremely versatile, 100% pure, natural, refined oil that blends perfectly with other ingredients used in clean beauty + body care blends as a soothing, softening, hydrating, strengthening, conditioning, protective, anti-aging agent. Arrowroot Powder and Geogard help thicken and preserve formulas to protect them from bacteria and fungi. Almond Blossom + Tonka Cream Fragrance Oil is a sweet, milky, floral scent with notes of almond blossom flower, vanilla, cream, and white lilies. Comes with 8 Frosted Glass Jars that hold 100 ml each + Bamboo Lids.

PROJECT PREP:

Clean your workspace with warm, soapy water or wipe it down with disinfecting alcohol and a lint-free cloth.
Make sure the room you’re working in is properly ventilated so open up windows if possible (with proper netting so insects don’t fly in). Do not work with a fan on as this can ruin your project formula, especially if you’re using powders.
Make sure all of your making supplies are completely clean before beginning your project. Disinfect your supplies by dipping them in a 5% bleach water solution and let them dry. This includes any containers and spatulas or spoons you’re using to mix + blend your formula. It’s important to make sure your formula is made as germ-free as possible so you can reap all the delicious smelling, soothing benefits!
Organize your workspace by having all your supplies out and readily available. It can be helpful to place your unused supplies on one side of your workspace and then once used in the making process, place them on the other side.
If the project you’re working on requires extra layers of protection because of potential unwanted (hot) splashes, you may want to wear protective equipment like these ultra-chic Safety Glasses or Goggles and Maker Apron.

STEPS

In Pitcher #1, chop 9 oz of Cocoa Wafers into small pieces and heat them up in the microwave using 30 second intervals. Once they are softened, smush them with your spatula or a bamboo spoon. The consistency must be semi-soft and similar to the Monoi Oil. Once you achieve this consistency, add in 6 oz of Monoi Oil and mix both ingredients until they are fully combined.
In Pitcher #2, add 10 oz of Shea Butter and make sure to break apart any large chunks. Then, add in your blend of Cocoa Wafers and Monoi Oil and mix everything together until they are fully combined.
Add in 0.2 oz of Geogard and mix it thoroughly into your formula.
Use a Hand Mixer to start whipping your butters for about a minute. Check the consistency to make sure there are no large chunks.
Once your mixture is smooth, slowly add 1.8 oz of Arrowroot Powder to avoid forming clumps. Continue to mix your formula until you have added all of the Arrowroot Powder and the mixture is fully combined. Remember to scrape the sides using a spatula to integrate everything. This should take about 2-3 minutes, or until you have achieved your desirable consistency.
Carefully pour your creamy formula into your Frosted Glass Jars and let them sit and cool to avoid condensation. Once cooled, secure them with Bamboo Lids and let them sit for 24 hours before using.
When you’re ready, simply apply the butter to your skin and enjoy the soothing benefits of your delightfully dreamy creation.

Maker Tip 1: When softening the wafers, the cooler they are, the better they will perform.

Maker Tip 2: Use a Hand Mixer instead of the wand blender, otherwise no whip consistency will be achieved.
