whipped shea butter revisited

It's been over a year since I last made whipped shea butter.  I wasn't pleased with the results (didn't like the texture), and being a little frustrated and not wanting to waste any more oils or shea butter, I put this project on hold until I was ready to experiment again.  Well...at the start of this week, I was ready!

I completely changed up my recipe this time...I lowered my shea butter amount and also used different oils- jojoba and rice bran..as well as added in some vitamin E.  After I made this batch,  I'm very pleased with how it turned out!  The texture is creamier, almost frosting-like.  The batch I made last time was very hard...I had to "dig" it out of the container.

It's been five days since I made the whipped shea butter...it has set up a little, but not a whole lot. I'm still liking the consistency of it!  I scoured the internet when I was formulating my recipe, and I'd have to say that  the site I referred to the most (in case anyone else is interested in also) was the Point of Interest! blog.

  1. Sounds like you've come up with a great new recipe! I tried to make lotion once and it was a complete disaster, lol. Your whipped shea butter looks absolutely lovely, though - so creamy and rich.
