Whipped body butter is an economical and easy to make body moisturizer that replaces expensive hydrating creams. It contains only 2 key ingredients and a few drops of essential oils if desired.
It is called «butter» because it has almost the same characteristics as butter in the kitchen. It is harder than cream and melts quickly when touched.
From the very first use, the immense moisturizing power of whipped butter will make you forget its more oily appearance than traditional cream. Also, what a surprise to see the results on your skin after the application of whipped body butter.
It penetrates quickly and leaves a glossy finish, but your skin will want more every day!
Whipped body butter protects against frequent hand washing and is excellent for the treatment of eczema.
Whipped body butter simply contains butter and plant-based oil.
With the same recipe, it is therefore possible to create a multitude of variants by modifying the butter or oil.
The general proportion to be respected is 3 parts of butter for 2 parts of oil. For a slightly softer butter, just add a little more oil.
