Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 51 Customer Reviews)
Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.
Our Soy Butter is white in color with a very mild scent. Soy beans are extremely high in lecithin, sterolins, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids and isoflavones. This butter penetrates easily into the skin, which makes it an effective moisturizing agent for hydrating the skin’s moisture barrier while softening dry, chafed, and rough skin. It exhibits good spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or base for a body balm, and it can be added to soaps, creams, lotions, body butters, and more. Use it in your hair care products for added conditioning and shine.
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.
Shelf Life: Slow to go rancid, when the butter is kept closed, at a temperature below 18°C and kept away from light, the shelf life will be up to 24 months from the date of manufacture. Refrigeration is recommended.
Cautions: For external use only; a skin test is recommended prior to use.

Rating: This is the smoothest most absorbing butter I have dealt with. I have been using it since 2006 and it is the base to most of my products. Now that is has been out of stock for two months, I have to REVAMP my entire company...and my stint on HSN is today. What is the status?????

Rating: Butter is exactly how this feels in the hand. I use it as a base in several salves, and as a base for deep tissue massage that requires a moderate slip. It's great!
Rating: I was surprised to see how soft and moisturizing Soy Butter is. I live in a cold climate and use moisturizers on my hair especially in the Winter months. I know that Soy is a protein and wanted to see how well it made my hair shine. The results were outstanding. A little goes a long way. I used it raw right out the container. It left no odor on my hair which is nice. And after applying, the palm of my hands were so soft yet not greasy. I purchased it for moisturizing and am pleased that it does the job. Not everyone carries this Butter. Will be purchasing it time and time again.
Rating: I bought the 1.1 lb tub of this butter back in may and, love adding it to my lotions and creams next time I am buying the 2.2 lb tub. It's great mixed with other products or on its own.
By:Rose, Saint Albans, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-May-2013
Rating: I had never worked with Soy Butter before and wasn't sure what to expect. However, I am very pleased with this product. It's smooth, white, creamy texture added smoothness to my whipped body butters. It also helped the whipped body butters to hold scents. I am impressed and will order more
Rating: This has a fabulous creamy texture and absorbs quickly into the skin. No offensive odor and would take scent well. Would purchase again.
By:Christina, Columbia, South Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2013
Rating: I just recieve my order of the 2lb Soy Butter.This is my first time ordering from this company. First of all I love how my items were packaged. It was in containers that were sealed securely! The butter is so soft and creamy....its like it melts right into your skin. I am definitely ordering more. My skin is still soft from when I applied the butter at 1:18pm and its not 11:53pm. I will be using this butter primarily for my hair but may need to buy more to use for my skin since it has my skin so soft.
Rating: This butter is great! Just whip a few drops of your favorite e.o. into this and you have a wonderful , easy to make cure for dry skin.
By:Tiffany, Morrisville, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 24-Dec-2012
Rating: This creamy butter has become my obsession. You get so much for your money and it so wonderful straight out of the jar. I use it in my hair and on my skin and it is FANTASTIC!! My entire family loves it. Bye bye dry skin

Rating: I wasn't sure about this product but wanted to give it a try for its great skin conditioning properties and the great price. It's a wonderful butter, so creamy and smooth and practically odorless and completely colorless. Works great in my CP soaps. I'm hooked and will be coming back for more!

Rating: I absolutely love this product! The price is amazingly affordable for the quality of this product. It blends easily with my other butters nicely. I use it for both my natural Haircare and Body line. My customers and myself are pleased!
Rating: I added this to my conditioner. Best thing ever! This soy butter is incredible for you hair. Try it, your hair will thank you.
By:Suzanne, Quakertown, Pennsylvania Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 10-Feb-2011
Rating: Wow this was my first time trying this butter. I bought it as a replacement for shea butter, because sometimes it can be too heavy and greasy for my family. Straight out of the jar it feels AMAZINGLY smooth, not hard like shea or cocoa butter. This feels soft and closer to the texture of real butter from the grocers haha. Its very moisturizing and I like that it is basically odorless and takes scents well. When whipped, it super creamy and light, but depending on how much oils you use to whip it, you can kind of build it (more oil for a heavier mixture). Saw a reviewer mention using this as diaper rash. May have to try that out.
Rating: I bought this just ouf of curiosity and the price cannot be beat! I was pleasantly surprised by this butter. It's very easy to use, and you don't need to melt it to add EO. The natural smell is OK, nothing too strong, it leaves skin soft and silky, and it goes on smooth.
I added it to some 'miracle whips' I make according to inspiration to give Hemp Seed Oil some more consistency at room temp and it blends well.
I will be purchasing more of this as it's an easy lazzy way to have a nice skin cream without any more effort than scooping it out of the jar!!! (It's permanently in my desk drawer as a hand/programmer elbow cream, alongside my Sandalwood powder that I use as an incense!!!)
By:Elise, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I'm not sure if maybe I haven't melted it enough before but this butter always comes out feeling grainy. I got a lot of it and am trying to use it up, but I'm not sure what to do with it. It's not bad, though, and you get a lot for your buck.
By:Kelly, North Babylon, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 21-Jan-2012
Rating: This is a wonderful butter! Had never heard of it before but went ahead & tried it in a lotion. Great moisturizing capabilities and smooth to work with. Will use much more in the future.
By:Julie, Watertown, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Sep-2009
Rating: I really love this butter. I love the fact that it is natural and not a genetically modified butter.
It blend beautifully with coconut oil.
I use it as an alternative to shea butter.
Rating: First butter I have worked with. Whips up lovely and smooth, non greasy. Great texture, my favorite.
By:Megan, Chesterfield, Missouri Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Nov-2011
Rating: HANDS DOWN, this is the most balanced and rewarding product in my product line. Not too greasy, vegan friendly, takes fragrance well and when whipped, it doesnt deflate. I add a lil grapeseed oil and voila...magic
By:Cynthia, Owings Mills, Maryland Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-May-2008
Rating: This product is very easy to use. Good moisture but I find it a bit too oily, very hard to clean my material afterwards.
By:Michele, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Soy butter has become my fave addition to all my creams and whipped butters. It adds a luxurious touch to my moisturizing cream and whips up perfectly alongside more expensive Shea and Cocoa butters. At a time when we all have to be more careful with our recipe costings, this is a great find, thanks!!
By:Jackie, Dundalk, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I just received my soy butter today... fabulous product, fabulous service. I have so many plans for this butter, the possibilities are end less:-)
Its thick and rich great for skin and my really thick dry curly hair. I'm glad the other reviews were on point. Good job NDA.!

Rating: I ordered this soy butter a while ago and decided I wanted to make a baby hair curl cream, it was so creamy and moisturizing I tried it on my hair, I instantly fell head in love with it, I will move forward to market this hair curl cream, I'm hooked, can't wait to order my next batch of soy butter, the price is great.

Rating: Love the way the soy feels! I cannot wait to work with it!! Exciting, thank you NDA!!!
Rating: This butter is great! I use 100% soy butter with lavender and chamomile eo as diaper rash cream and it did wonders on my baby! Recently I have an auto-immune disorder and caused blister all over my body. When the blister is healing, my skin is really dry and crack. So I use soy butter mix with rosehip and rice bran oil as body balm. It soothe my skin right away. The velvet feeling just like putting silk on my skin. Thank you for offering such a great product.
By:Simone, New Westminster, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: By far the best soy butter. I have tried other suppliers and the product was gritty and thin. ND's soy butter is thick and creamy and could be used straight out of the jar! Not to mention customer service is awesome. Product is always delivered when promised.
By:Dawn, Virginia Beach, Virginia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Oct-2010
Rating: I just got my very first order today. I ordered 3.3 lbs and already love it. I make soy candles and sometimes put the melted wax on my hands, especially during the winter when they get really dry. When I first put the butter on, it melted just like the wax but didn't leave my hands as greasy. I'm super excited because I originally ordered it for my dad. His arm get extremely dry and then start to crack and bleed. I am going to mix the Texas Cedarwood with it and can't wait to see the results. This butter is awesom!!!
Rating: This is a beautiful butter, feels wonderful and for such an amazing price
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Pleasant, "slippy" texture...odd as it sounds, sort of like cream cheese. It melts slowly on the skin, kind of oily at first but will absorb with a little help. No discernible scent. Very excited to try it in a cream!
By:Mary, New Westminster, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I fell in love at first touch. So smooth and creamy. Gives my products a great consistency. I also love the scent even though its not really powerful. Always keep in stock NDA pretty please!
By:Shana, New York, New York Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Apr-2010
Rating: This is one of the few places you can get a really great soy butter at a great price. No odor, smooth texture and just melts to the touch. Thanks NDA.
By:Juanita, East Burke, Vermont Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Sep-2008
Rating: Great consistency, and as far as I can tell completly free of any scent. PERFECT for in my body butters, melts quickly and sinks in your skin leaving no greasy feeling.
By:Erin, Oshawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This butter has replaced several of my normally used butter's.I made a batch of full body age defying butter and my customers loved it,i kept a jar just for myself and it's almost gone.I can feel the difference in my skins texture already.The butter is very easy to work with and has very little scent.I added Bulgarian Lavender to this batch.I ordered 2 of the 2.2 lb containers and when I order again I'll be ordering more then that,can't wait to start adding this to my soaps,lotions and creams.
Great job ND for another great product.

Rating: This product is absolutely the best! It is light in texture and works well in the hair & on the skin. My company has built a vey reputable following because of this product. We love it!!!
Rating: Totally loving this butter so far. Bought it as a replacement for Shea since I can't use that anymore due to a severe allergy to tree nuts. Thick white consistency & I found no discernible scent. Tried it as is and it melted immediately with no greasy feel. Made a body butter with it tonight as well and am very pleased with the results! Looking forward to trying it as a whipped butter & in my lip butter as well. I will be purchasing more!

Rating: This butter is perfect for my Afro-American textured hair in the winter...
It's heavy, creamy and leaves my hair feeling silky. I believe that it is also a great price, after all six dollars and change isn't going to put me out much.

Rating: So interseting ! This butter has a "dense" feeling and seems very rich. I will use it in my cp soap with pleasure but will try it "as is" on my skin ... just to try. At first glance, does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I didn't know how this butter would feel but went I used it on my skin I loved it, then I wondered how it would do in my hair and conditioners I have only been using this butter for a little over a month now and my hair is more healthy and has grown and inch longer.

Rating: Very smooth and creamy butter! No offensive odor and will work perfectly for my body butters.
By:Wendy, Regina, Saskatchewan Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love it! Very soft pleasant butter. White and no strong odor. Melts easily on the skin and doesn't feel greasy.
By:Jacinthe, Montréal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This soy butter is interesting, it looked to me like crisco grease and smelt like it. However it relieves extremely dry skin well. My son had very chapped lips that were cracking and bleeding so I applied a little of this butter and it relieved his discomfort well. At night I often use this butter on my hands, feet, knees, elbows and lips to soften and protect my skin. The texture is very thick and heavy, but works well diluted with other products. Over-all it's a good product for intense skin moisturization.
