So we know you are all super excited about the upcoming holidays and are ready to start making gifts. We always get requests about recipes and how to get the right product texture for DIY products. In this video, we are showing an up close look at the natural butters we carry and how you can use them to make body butters and more skin care products at home. It is important to know which butters work best for the different personal care products you’ll like to make.
Hard butters like Illipe, Kokum and Cocoa will give your product a stiff texture so they are highly suitable for lotion bars, soaps, thick body butters and deodorants. Medium textured butters like Sal, Mango, Cupuacu and Shea butter will make your products fluffy and airy. The softest butters we carry are Murumuru and Tamanu butter. They make soft body butters and lotions.
You can also learn how to mix the different textures of butters to achieve your ultimate goal. Stay tuned for more tips on making amazing products.

I have ordered several of these butters for my business especially the shea and cocoa butters. I only order from Oslove because I know every product is of the best quality. All of my customers love these butters as well because they also have commented on the quality. The smell, textures of these butters are awesome and they leave your skin feeling so smooth. These butters can’t compare to any other brand.
That is pretty awesome Christy. Thanks for the wonderful feedback.
Very informative information! I just made my first whipped shea butter last week and I did not really research before hand the specifics of choosing the right products for specific lotions ect. I will keeo this information in mind for my next project I will be making a stiffer body cream for eczema!
Thank you for this info. My daughters and I love making diy’s! This is very useful info
Thanks for the feedback 🙂
I love making my own skincare and haircare products, but it never occurred to me that I need to really think about how the butters I choose will affect their consistency. I usually just chose the butters I like, but this totally makes sense. I’ll definitely start thinking about that now though. Thanks so much for sharing this information.
