Did you get your recipe from Coastal Scents too? The stuff is awesome tho.I make my own body butter with unrefined shea butter, jojoba oil and grapeseed oil. It's more of a cake frosting consistency. I have seborrheic dermatitis and dry body skin so this works great. I use it for face (which is oily t-zone/acne prone) and body.
No I wouldn't use it on the face since it is a body butter and quite thick right out of the container. I am not sure if cocoa butter is recommended for use on the face either.Is it ok for the face too?
The shea butter with jojoba and grapeseed you can use on your face as well as your body. I`m on my second batch.No I wouldn't use it on the face since it is a body butter and quite thick right out of the container. I am not sure if cocoa butter is recommended for use on the face either.
It is for very dry skin and combines cocoa butter and shea butter. A friend of mine recommended it to me years ago and one container lasts me forever.
A little goes a long way, and it is thick right when you scoop it out but it melts in nicely to the skin once rubbed in, and for me keeps my very dry skin on my legs super smooth.
Sorry... I didn't see the question.I wouldn't use cocoa butter or shea butter on the face. Cocoa butter will clog the pores and shea butter is way too greasy IMHO. I much prefer kokum butter for the face. Babassu is another option, which is like coconut oil but non-clogging.
Jane, what kind of rice powder do you use?
I prefer light body butter -- more of a souffle.
