Chia Butter consists of Omega 3 and Omega 6 Essential Fatty Acids, which are required for optimum skin health. It contains powerful phytonutrients as well as antioxidants such as Vitamin E. It protects the skin against the abuse of environmental elements, thereby helping to prevent the signs of aging skin. Chia Butter is an ideal ingredient in moisturizing formulations, as it prevents water-loss by protecting skin's moisture barrier and keeps the skin hydrated, making it look plump and radiant. Chia Butter can also be added to formulations for homemade lotions and creams that are intended to soothe dry and itchy skin, as it restores vital moisture and reduces redness.

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.
