DIY Cocoa and Shea Body Butter

My Dad uses The Body Shop’s Body Butters for dry skin a lot. As it is hard to find a Christmas gift for him, I have improvised an all natural, fragrance-free body butter recipe for him. Maybe, he even likes it.

Ingredients for 200ml:

20g berry wax

75g cocoa butter

85g shea butter

15ml sweet almond oil

10ml vitamin E

Melt together the wax and the butters in a water bath, let cool for five minutes outside the water bath, then add the oil and the vitamin E while the mixture is still liquid. Pour into an airtight container, close the lid and let harden.

Enjoy!
