Small batch:

  • 1 Tbs Shea butter (unrefined)
  • 1 tsp Aloe Vera juice
  • 1/8 tsp of zinc oxide

  1. Melt the shea however you would double boiler, whatever and whisk in the aloe when melted.
  2. When well blended, SIFT in the ZnO.
  3. Whip til it's creamy smooth. It should be a slightly opaque, very light cream color. The Shea Aloe is a pretty common mix ~I call it Shea Lite~but the addition of Zinc I think is a good idea. Not greasy at all, and it makes a great primer.
