Foaming Bath Butter (Paraben Free)

RatingRatingRatingRatingRating
Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5 (Based on 48 Customer Reviews)


Foam Bath Butter MPGF / Crystal OPC

Our Foaming Bath Butter is Paraben-Free and Propylene Glycol Free. With the demand for skin care products to be as natural and as environmentally friendly as possible, Stephenson has developed a new formulation for its Foaming Bath Butter.
This is the latest technology in cream soap. It offers both versatility and true luxury. It cleanses while moisturizing, and has a very mild pH of 5.5 - perfect for facial applications.

This product still maintains high performance and stability and does not compromise on quality or price. As a base it provides an entire world of possibilities: whipped into a parfait, colored and layered, as a shaving butter, as a body meringue and as a sugar or salt scrub! The list is endless. Easily add essential oils, fragrant oils, other natural butters, and other cream and lotion bases…with this product you are limited only by your imagination!

Features:
• Carrier Oils - Adding up to 2oz (60ml) of a carrier oils (Grape Seed, Evening Primrose, Sweet Almond, Avocado or Sea Buckthorn if you're looking for a really exotic product!) per pound of base has made the foaming bath butter more moisturizing, particularly on products being applied to the face.
• Sugar / Salt - Sugar or salt can be added until the product becomes supersaturated. Once the salt or sugar stops melting, it will remain in crystal form and act as a wonderful exfoliater.
• Fragrance - The Foaming Bath Butter is incredibly robust, and will accept a fragrance load of up to 5% essential oil or fragrant oil. Consumer applications indicate a load of 2 to 3% is preferred.
• Other Butters and Bases - Try adding Shea, Mango or Cocoa Butter, or try adding some of our exotic Amazonian Butters! The Foaming Bath Butter will also accept small amounts of other creams, lotions, and moisturizers!

Caution: Foaming Bath Butter will double in volume when whipped using a blender or cake mixer. However, it can collapse if whipped to more than double its original volume. Under no circumstances should this product be discharged at temperatures higher than 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees C.); 118 degrees F is the preferred temperature. At temperatures below 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees C.), the product hardens.

Basic Parfait Sample Recipe:
• 2 Pounds Foaming Bath Butter
• 4 Oz of Sweet Almond Oil (2 oz per pound of Foaming Bath Butter)
• Color to suit
• Fragrance or Essential Oil to suit

Cut 2 Pounds of the Foaming Bath Butter and place in a mixing bowl. Using a cake mixer, slowly break down the product into a soft, consistent form. Add 4 oz of the Sweet Almond for extra moisturizing properties and start mixing at a higher speed until the product doubles in volume. Simply add color and fragrance to suit, and voila! You have created an exotic bath parfait with endless possibilities. Place in your open container of choice and allow 24 hours for the product to set. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try layering different colors and selling as a Foaming Body Parfait!

I was a little intimidated by this product once it arrived. I did not want to whip up a 1lbs 'sample' right of the bat, since I have never worked with anything like this product. I opted to sacrifice a small batch to experiment (about 3onz. of the foaming base and 1tsp of hemp carrier oil). I whipped with my mixer added about 3 onz. of sugar - some Basil, Cucumber and Orange Blossom essential oils and the results are AMAZING! The mixture doubled in volume in less than 5 min. So far; everyone that has sampled my end product has simply loved it! Thank You ND for providing excellent products at reasonable prices.

The ND foaming bath butter is truly a luxury It lathers beautifully with just a small amount and leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. Use your favorite blend of pure essential oils and/or fragrance oils for a signature scent. Add coarse sea salt for a lovely exfoliating experience for showers and baths. Makes a beautiful gift when tailored for specific scent personality. A favorite of everyone that tries it.

I have to say first off that this product is amazing. It's very easy to incorporate scents, and is somewhat easy to make. The versatility in products has made anything I make with it a HUGE hit among customers, family and friends as well.

The Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is what provides a luxuriously creamy lather in this product. If you make a sugar scrub, be sure to use large grain sugar. Regular refined sugar tends to dissolve over time in the mix. Overall a great product!

The product itself is great but the packaging is AWFUL. I ordered the ten pound size and it came in a large mouth jug. In order to get it out I had to end up softening it in hot water and digging it out with my hand. I transferred it to a bucket so that in the future I can get it out more easily.

LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this stuff!!! I bought it on a whim, and made a sugar scrub with ND's tangerine, lime, and grapefruit EO's. BLEW ME OUT OF THE WATER! My Big Sister loves this. And boy, does it wake me up in the morning! I find this so much easier to use and less greasy than other sugar scrub products I've bought. So I'm making my own from now on. And to think I'm using my KitchenAid Mixer more for bath products than for consumables... Hmm...

As someone who does this as a hobby, I am really enjoying this base. It's flexible for a variety of applications from scented, tinted sugar scrubs to shaving cream for my husband with sensitive skin. A fun and unique product - I could get carried away.

This stuff is the BEST! I ahve never had s much fun creating products as I do with this. It's just so versatile. It takes scets, colour and other addtives very well. The possibilites are only limited by your imagination. It lathers well and leaves your skin quite soft. And if you have sensitive skin, you can still use it just don't put any scent or colouring and it still works great. Amazing, amazing product.

This is by far the best base I have found for my sugar scrubs and I have shopped around quite a bit. It is very robust and thick, which I find helps stand up to the sugar. I have not had a problem with my sugar dissolving in this base at all. It takes FOs and EOs well and is very easy to work with. Plus it's paraben free!

This is some of the best stuff I think I have ever used. Easy to make your own soaps just whip and add your essentials oils, and scrubs and walla your done. When adding goats milk and the right amount of essential oils your skin is super soft and smooth. I made a cream scrub that is wonderful with this and I also made bar soaps adding this to it The bar soap I just created with this in the mixture is the best soap ive created and leaves the skin super soft and silky looking soft to. Top rated and I will be back for more!

Absolutely amusing product, highest quality. Use kitchen electrical beater on low to mix ingredients. Start slow and gradually increase speed. Keep bowl with ingredients in bigger bowl with worm water to keep mixture slightly warm - do not overheat. It is my impression that if you beat too long (or too intense), foam may slightly shrinks. I used this product to make shaving cream - perfect on my dry skin. I mixed it with coconut, calendula and chamomile oils. Foam is stable and do not change with time (1 month so far). Great company, pleasure to have deal with. Shipment was fast, packaging - great. They even include hand-written thank-you note. Will buy again.

I've been using this product for a little over a year and my customers can't get enough. I can't keep it in stock long enough to share it with the new customers. I make mine using Apricot & Grapeseed Oil, but I'm tempted to use a touch of Shea Butter.

Anything I make with this sells like crazy!! It is definitely a success in my business, my customers love everything made from this product. The best seller is a creamy facial scrub with jojoba beads or apricot shells & almond oil, works like a charm and never seems to bother the skin. I absolutely love that it is free of propylene glycol & parabens, as well as SLS, I never would have tried it otherwise as I base my business avoiding these ingredients.

Since I have been layed off I started making my own products at home. Now all of my relatives want to try my soaps, scrubs, body butters, ect.. I have to say if I could try only one item this would be it. I got the results I wanted the very first time I tried this . (I was trying to make something to replace one of my favorite foaming sugar scrubs that I used to buy at a much higher price.) Also this is the best thing I have ever used as a shaving cream also. I'm totally addicted!!! Will be buying more of this!!

Back again! Great product, and I'll be ordering more soon. To answer the question about how long it should be whipped for---I phoned NDA directly and they said that it should be whipped anywhere between 5-15 minutes depending on how warm your carrier oil was. Don't heat the base itself, but warm your oil slightly and pour it over no less than 2lbs of butter (which will soften the base) and then blend.

I love this stuff! I add the sweet almond oil as described but also a 1/4 cup local, dark honey per 2 lbs of butter. That seems to work well in keeping it from being too drying. The honey gives it a nice color and a creamy consistency. Sometimes I will add apricot powder and some cinnamon and nutmeg for a nice exfoliating scrub. I use this on my face 2 or 3 times a week and do not find it drying. Once you get the hang of mixing this stuff you can do so much with it. I have not been able to get it to double, but maybe I'm too afraid of it collapsing. Any one with ideas of how long to beat it please comment.

I recently ordered 5 lbs of the Foaming Bath Butter to try and have been very pleased with the product. It took a bit of experimenting to get the results that I was looking for but I know I will be back for more of this product! I've created body parfaits and creamy sugar scrubs with this and am so happy with them. The first batch was made using Apricot Kernel Oil and I found that a bit too drying. My second batch was made using EVOO and Coconut Cream and, WOW! Very creamy and moisturizing while remaining foamy and producing a lot of bubbles! My next batch will be made incorporating Plum Kernel Oil...and I cannot wait to try that! I was a hobbyist...now I am an addict!

I ordered 10 lbs. of this to make gifts for Christmas last December. The gifts were well received, but once the recipients started using it they were wowed! They are now coming back to ask to buy more, and I'm about to run out. My husband also loves it as shaving soap, and a friend bathes her 86 year old mother with thin, sensitive skin with it. I add 2 oz. oil/pound to the base, and it is a lathery, creamy delight. One quibble I have is that I haven't found that it actually doubles in volume, maybe a little less. How long should it be whipped to double?

Not my favorite product. I'm happy that NDA is finding paraben-free products to offer -- but this item could definitely be improved. I find that it's still quite drying to the skin (even with the addition of sweet almond oil at the recommended ratio) compared to the goat's milk soap melt-n-pour soap. And I would never DREAM of applying this to my (or anyone else's) face. Am selling off my remaining product as a scrubby hand-degreaser (like an all-natural 'Fast Orange'-style shop soap) -- but will not be purchasing this item again.

Wow, is this stuff ever cool! Just a word of caution, though... I find that fragrance takes a day to "develop" once it's been whipped in, so if it doesn't smell very strong as first, let it sit for a day, smell it again, then proceed accordingly. Otherwise, I'm starting to think it's impossible to screw anything up while using this stuff. Extremely versatile. The 5lb. bucket isn't enough!

I love this stuff. I like to make smaller batches than you suggest. I actually make each 4oz jar individually after it is ordered. I place 2.5oz of bath butter in a tall, slender tumbler. Use one that your beaters can touch the bottom in and just barely larger around than the beaters. Melt the butter in the microwave for 10-15 seconds only. Add 1/2tsp whatever oil or melted butter you want to add and 1/2tsp. fragrance. One drop of color and beat for 1minute. Pour into a 4oz clear PET jar and allow it to set up before putting on the lid. This works great and helps to keep from wasting product . Thanks for offering this wonderful product.

Super stuff. Has the look and feel of heavy whipped cream, and feels wonderful on the skin. Makes one of the best facial scrubs I have ever used, and I have sensitive skin! Carries scent very well, and looks professional in clear containers. Not a product you would want to hide! Especially if you add exfoliators, such as ground apricot kernels, or even jojoba spheres. This product sells it's self, so if you are in business, allow your customers to try it out!
