Shea - Crude (Ghana) Fair TradeVerified by ECOCERT
Tucuma - Refined
Product Rating: 4.8/5 (As per 19 Customer Reviews)
Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.
This refined butter is a rich blend of Lavender Essential Oil and non-GMO Soy Butter for a fragrant white butter that is soft, with a rich viscosity and smooth texture that melts quickly on contact with the skin.
Common Uses: Lavender Oil is renowned for its calming scent and numerous beneficial skin properties. This butter blend has an amazing scent and a creamy luxurious color and texture, making it ideal for massage butters or body balms. Though it can be used as is, it is also a great addition to soaps and any emulsion formulation such as creams and lotions.
When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm them until the texture can 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: This butter should be stored in a cool dark place and has a shelf-life of 1 year when stored properly.
Note: The appearance of this blend may slightly vary from batch to batch due to natural ingredients present in this product such as essential oils.

Rating: The smell alone makes me love this butter. The lavender fragrances is amazing. This melts into your skin and moisturizes like crazy. I love it for hands and feet. I recommend this for those with rough elbows too.

Rating: This blend is amazing. I tried it in my very first order from NDA. I'm addicted. It's amazing on the skin. If you are obsessed with Lavender like I am it's a must have. I can't wait to try it in a lotion bar or soap blend. Will double my order next time.

Rating: I love the scent of this butter. Often adding lavender EO to a butter usually cause the lavender fragrance to fade a bit. I've had this butter for 5 months now and it has NOT faded at all. Perfect for any formulation

Rating: Lovely butter to use on my arms and chest as I get in bed. Lulls me right to sleep and I wake up silky smooth!
Rating: I ordered this butter for the first time and I so in love with this butter. It feels great on the skin and the smell is wonderful. I am so in love with it that I only want to share it with the hubby but, at the same time I want my customers to enjoy also. I will be back for more.
Rating: It feels great! I ordered this butter a year ago and still have it bcuz I love it so much, but this batch does not smell nearly as lovely as the batch from a year ago....kinda disappointed....I wonder if they used a different lavender and less lavender. :(

Rating: I received this the other day and am waiting until my formulation is all worked out before actually using it. I will tell you that this is gorgeous stuff! Creamy with a fabulous lavender aroma!! I think this would make an awesome body butter substitute for shea butter.
Rating: Their butters are just wonderful, they smell wonderful and are awesome for the skin. I mixed equal amounts of the lavender and chamomile together, now that was a sweet smell, just wanted to eat it.

Rating: This butter is so awesome. It smells like lavender essential oil and is just slightly creamier than the shea butter. I used it in a couple of my HP soap recipes and it performs beautifully, especially in my lavender soap. I have also used it in my lavender body butter formula and sold out. You can't beat the price either! I'll be back for more!

Rating: I just received this today so I haven't had a chance to use it yet, but it smells fantastic, very creamy sweet floral lavender scent. I have a feeling that my lavender soaps are going to rock this year!

Rating: This is an incredible product! I love it for lotion bars! I alter the ratios so I can make this my main ingredient.
By:Kat, Cody, Wyoming Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Sep-2011
Rating: This is a wonderful and inexpensive product to use in CP soap. I just use the same SAP as soybean oil and the scent carries through to the soap. Nice way to get a lavender soap without spending money on FO or eo. I also made a lavender body butter using my normal shea, cocoa butter recipe along with a little of the lavender butter and the final product was a touch softer than my regular recipe which was lovely.

Rating: Fabulous fragrance, a true lavender. Butter goes on smoothly and doesn't clump up. Wonderful stuff!

Rating: I just love this butter both plain and mixed with shea soap base. It leaves your skin so soft that now I won\'t go out of the house without washing with the soap and then putting it straight from the jar on my legs and hands. This is the best thing I have found for my dry Nevada skin.
Rating: Wonderful butter. This is one of my first of many purchases from New Directions. Great butter to spread all over your body after a lavender oil and milk based bath. The butter makes your skin feel relaxed and soft - and did I mention the scent? Absolutely scrumptious! Oh yeah, and don't forget to give yourself (or someone else gives you) a foot massage with this butter. Your feet will feel so relaxed, you'll want to take them off (yes, I wrote that), put them in a box and place the box on a top shelf in your closet! I cannot write enough positive remarks about this butter.
Rating: Love this butter! The first time I brought it, I used it straight out of jar for a sleepy time massage rub for my sons. Worked like a charm. I then used it on my winter dry skin, and marveled at how it moisturized without leaving a greasy after feel. Next, I am going to use it in a line of sugar scrubs I am developing.
Rating: LOVE LOVE LOVE the Lavender fragrance of this butter! We have been looking to develop a line of body butters, that will moisturize and fragrance the skin, and this butter will be fabulous! Can't wait to try in all kinds of recipes for butters, and soap! Thank you ND!!
