Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 17 Customer Reviews)
Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.
Sweet Almond Butter is a blend of Sweet Almond Oil and non-GMO Soy Butter to create a rich butter with a dense viscosity and smooth texture. Because this butter retains all the natural benefits of Sweet Almond Oil, such as its high levels of essential fatty acids, antioxidants, and Vitamins A, B, and E, it is perfect for lotions, creams, and body butters. Especially designed to enhance formulations for dry skin, its creamy texture enables it to be used as is by those with very dry skin.
Aromatic Description: Mild to no scent.
Common Uses: This butter can be added to creams or lotions to make them ultra-rich and increase their emollience. It makes a particularly helpful addition to products designed for baby care and sensitive skincare. Almond Butter exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for deeply hydrating products.
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 or 15 g/k. 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 one year when stored properly.

Rating: I bought this along with Shea butter and glycerin based on a review from 2008. I combined them to make body butter for my niece who has issues with eczema. The butter worked well for her and also for my mom, who has problems with her fingertips cracking during the cold weather. I love how creamy the almond butter is and how easily I was able to melt it and mix it. I will definitely be ordering more!

Rating: This is a hearty butter, unscented and very, very smooth. I had it for a while and finally tried it. It's phenomenal. It's heavy but when you rub it into your skin, it's not oily. I wish I knew how wonderful this was a long time ago. You must try it.

Rating: I am in love with this butter! I've been using just NDA Almond Oil as a cleanser, NDA rosewater as a toner, and then this wonderful butter straight out of the jar as a moisturizer. It feels amazing and absorbs beautifully. My skin has never looked better, and I've been getting so many compliments on my skin. Most recently, I got asked for ID when buying wine, and I'm 41 years old!

By:Monique, Pembroke Pines, Florida Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: This is my new favorite! I used shea for a few years without wanting even to try anything else. I added Sweet almond butter to a deodorant which turned out much better with this butter, also Peppermint oil from NDA. It even gives you cooling feel for 3 hours after applying.
Also used it in face cream, very good results. I am addicted to it now :) thanks NDA

Rating: The butter was grainy when I got it, but I can easily melt it and I can't feel grains in the final product. The butter is so smooth, I love it in lip balms!

Rating: This is great stuff! Of all the NDA butters I've sampled (including Shea butters, Tucuma and Grapeseed) the Sweet Almond Butter is my hands down favorite. I should point out here that I am not a soap maker, and so I cannot vouch for this product's usefulness in that application. But when it comes to moisturization, texture, and ease of absorption, this butter is without peer. It has a softer texture at room temperature than the processed Shea butter and is more easily absorbed - as well as less greasy - than that butter, but it has a firmer texture than Grapeseed Butter. I should also mention that the texture is completely smooth, without the heavy graininess of the Grapeseed butter. Also, Sweet Almond Butter has no real scent.
In terms of its uses, I like using this butter neat as a moisturizer that will not irritate skin, or blended with Shea Butter and a little glycerine for even better penetration of moisture. When applied neat, Sweet Almond Butter takes a minute or so to absorb, but it leaves the skin quite silky with only the barest hint of oiliness left behind. If you want a moisturizer with no oily residue, try the combination of Shea, Sweet Almond Butter, and glycerine. Experiment with the proportions (or add other butters in small amounts) until you reach the consistency you desire.
I ordered only a pound of this, and really wish I had ordered more! Great value for the price, and I couldn't recommend it more highly!

Rating: Easy to work with. I added some sweet almond butter into my Mand P soap. Softening ingredient. Can be used for massage and as an addition to body butters.
