Dear Customer,

Due to the rising costs of administering small orders, we are instituting a policy for minimum orders of $100, in our efforts to keep costs to as low as possible and offer the best wholesale pricing in the industry.

For orders less than $100, a small order administration fee of $20 will apply. This policy will be effective February 3rd, 2014. We truly regret any inconvenience that this might cause.

Kind Regards,

Alex B. Thomas

Olive Butter

Average Product Rating: 4.9 / 5 (Based on 11 Customer Reviews)

Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.

Olive Butter is designed for topical use, and is formulated with 100% pure, cold-pressed Olive Oil, which is very high in vitamins and a wide variety of nourishing fatty acids. Hydrogenated vegetable oil affords an odourless white base that is soft at room temperature but very rich, and it melts quickly on contact with the skin. This particular butter is very rich and smooth, and deeply hydrates dermal layers.

Common Uses: Olive Oil, so popular in the Mediterranean basin for skin-care and beauty products since time immemorial, aids with the re-hydration of dry or, more specifically, mature skin and hair. Especially helpful to nails and cuticles, it may be used to enhance a variety of formulations including lotions, creams, after-sun products, conditioners, body butters, luxury soaps, baby-care products and lip balms.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 5 - 20 %
Balms: 5 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 2 5 %

When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture, and can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.

Recommended Storage: Please note that this butter should ideally be stored in a refrigerator to maintain its texture. It will become soft in warmer temperatures. For more detailed information, click here.

Shelf Life: Store in cool temperatures (below 25 C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product will become liquid above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored properly.

I love this butter. I alternate between my coconut oil. It has no smell, for those that are sensitive to scents. It is so smooth and not greasy on the skin, and feels great when use on my hair. My whole family uses it instead of all those lotion that are full of chemicals. It is worth buying.

I love this butter for its creamy texture and moisturizing abilities. I have used it along with other butters that I bought from here in my daughter's hair and love it. I'll be buying this again for sure.

Well the appearance of the olive butter was grainy. One look and I was apprehensive as it looked a lot like a clump of wet jojoba beads. But it melted quickly on my skin and there was no greasiness after I rubbed it in. The scent is almost nil. Good product.

The olive butter is great for under eye cream, and on chapped skin. A little goes along way.

This is an amazing butter! I made a foot cream with this olive butter for my Mom who has foot problems. I added peppermint and calendula essential oils to it and my Mom can't stop saying great things about how smooth and nice her feet are now since using it. I definately recommend this to everybody.
