Product Rating: 4.7/5 (As per 23 Customer Reviews)
Aloe Butter is a rich blend of Aloe and non-GMO Soy Butter for an odorless white butter that is soft, with a rich viscosity and smooth texture that melts quickly on contact with the skin.
Common Uses: This butter is perfect for lotions, creams, and body butters. Especially designed to enhance formulations for normal-to-dry skin, its creamy texture enables it to be used as is by those with very dry or sensitive skin.
When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture is soft enough to be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle your melted butter to fully incorporate. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound. 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.
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 18 months when stored properly.
Caution: For external use only; a skin test is recommended prior to use.

Rating: This Aloe Butter is superb. It really does melt at body temperature! I gently melted a chunk into liquid using 5 second sessions in the microwave, then added some of NDA's Bronze Mica to the melted aloe. After letting it harden again -- it only took a few minute sin the refrigerator, I had a cute little jar of glitter balm! Now I just scrape off a bit of the solid butter with the back of my fingernail, melt the butter in my hands, mix it into a pump or two of lotion, and I've got a subtle but killer bronze glow! The Aloe Butter absorbs into the skin in about 10-15 minutes before there is no greasy feeling. At first it is a greasy, but it soaks in pretty quick, leaving you with well-moisturized skin. I love this stuff and will definitely buy again. it is so versatile.

Rating: THIS STUFF IS AWESOME!!!! I had been searching for something to put in my natural hair to keep it soft and nothing was working. I have a huge afro and my hair get very dry. I had tried tons of products and they weren't working. I made my own mixture of equal parts aloe, soy, and olive butter and my hair literally feels like baby hair again. I have nothing but good things to say about this stuff! GO NEW DIRECTIONS!!! HIGH FIVE :)

By:Madeline, Kingston, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: truly amazing - a water-based ingredient that behaves like an oil! I'm using it to create a whipped shea & aloe butter blend to help with my mom's surgical scar healing and my dad's cracked hands.
By:Philly, Durham, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This butter is very hard at room temperature, but melts rapidly in your hands. Very moisturizing! I prefer this butter over shea as is has no noticeable scent, you do not need to use as much EO/fragrance to scent it. It is light, absorbs into the skin and does not leave a greasy feeling.
By:Jessica, Etobicoke, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I can't live without this stuff! I simply will not make any of my cosmetics or hair care products without it. Leaves your hair and skin silky soft, a little goes a long way. It's my secret ingredient and customers love it! (They actually notice when I didn't add it, that's why I don't go without anymore)
By:William, San Francisco, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Dec-2011
Rating: This butter is GREAT in lipbalms!!!!!! Scent is a little strong on it's own (smells like raw aloe) however eaily covered by the scent of other butters and EOs.
By:Laura, Niagara Falls, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Since this is moisturizing and soothing to skin problems, it is a part of my triple moisturizing lotion bars. Yes I like anhydrous products.

Rating: What a beautiful aloe butter! Creamy, skin soothing, blends beautifully with other oils and butters - just wonderful! And it's great straight from the jar when you've indulged in a little too much sunshine. Excellent product from an excellent company.
By:Joanne, New Brunswick, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 22-Nov-2009
Rating: This was melted when I got it too, but it's summer in NJ so that is to be expected when it's shipped from Canada. Melts right into your skin out of the container and blended very well in my eczema body butter.
By:Christina, Woodbridge, New Jersey Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-May-2010
Rating: It was a tad melted when I got it and some had leaked out. Other than that its awesome. I used some straight out the container, it melted perfectly once it hit my skin. This will be awesome in CP soaps and body butter blends! I can't wait to use it on my daughter for her eczema!
