Rating: I'm finally getting back into making bath and body products, and this is the first thing I'm running back to!! My past customers went crazy over this, I love to customize blends for people's needs, and even if I didn't add anything else but fragrance, this is by far the best! I was going to check out other companies but was afraid their butter base wouldn't hold up and I can't afford to get stuck so I didn't bother, so this is my one and only go to body butter base!! :)

Rating: Such a wonderful product. Given as gifts with essential oil and each recipient loved it, uses it everyday especially in the Great Lakes winters.
Rating: THIS IS AMAZING!!!!! Contrary to other reviews, I think this holds fragrance VERY well. My customers RAVE about this body butter and LOVE the fact that it's not greasy at all! I bought 44lbs last time and will be back for more very soon!

Rating: New Directions continues to produce outstanding products and this ultra premium body butter is just one more example. Our customers LOVE this product and we couldn't be more happy to serve each and every one of them. Thank you New Directions - for our continued success and growth!
Rating: This is my 'go to' base when I'm too lazy or busy to make my own body butter. By adding small amounts of different carrier oils or butters along with a few extras, I make this my own. It's very forgiving and versatile. There is no discernable odor and it takes additives very well. I haven't noticed any stickiness or tackiness as some other reviewers have, it absorbs quickly and it lasts. Definitely a five star product!!
Rating: This body butter is amazing! It's incredibly thick and rich. I put my own spin on it with some extra additives and it turns out absolutely incredible! All my customers rave about it. Love this!

Rating: Excellent product! Takes and holds fragrance very well, didn't find the stickiness that someone else mentioned, feels great!
By:Vanessa, Terrace Bay, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Love this product...and so do my customers :) I am selling out
Rating: I just received my product-less than an hour ago! I was afraid but have to say it is just as the majority of reviews read-WONDERFUL! I added a little orange colorant to give it a mango vibe and added some cranberry peach vanilla fragrance. Its simply lovely!

Rating: Just recieved my item today and I absolutely love it! The body butter is the perfect consistency I was looking for. I cant wait to experiment with different colors and fragrances!! Awesome NDA!
Rating: After so much research for pricing and quality I am entirely pleased with the Body Butter Base (Ultra Premium). Rich thick base that blends well. My only want is that it absorb better. Perhaps I need to find the right EO to aid absorption. A well deserved reputation for quality products. I will be back.
Rating: My clients, customers & other massage therapists I work with just love this body butter!! It's amazing how moisturizing it is but doesn't leave them feeling greasy. Also it's an outstanding product that is perfect that it doesn't have Sulfates & is Paraben free. This is a product I've been purchasing & providing for my customers for a year now, since I started my own business. I plan on continuing to purchase this because it quite simply is the best product out there & that's what I want to provide to my customers! Thanks NDA for having such a great product available & at an affordable price!!
Rating: LOVE LOVE LOVE this base! I made body butters for my family for Christmas (orginally for the females in the family) but ended up making double because the males (who are notorious for their dry, rough hands) were raving about it after I gave them a sample. Will definitely purchase again and again!
Rating: Love this stuff! Takes fragrance and colouring well. Non greasy, and leaves your skin soft!
By:Stephanie, Guelph, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I use this Body Butter with ND's Lotion base. It makes for a fabulous lotion that I cant keep in stock due to high demand. It leaves your skin soft and silky. It also helps with problem dry skin by hydrating it, and locking in the moisture. My customers love how they can wash their hands, and yet they are still soft and silky from the lotion I create using New Direction products. I also use this body butter in my soap as well by melting it down and adding it to my Melt and Pour soap Base. When using the specially blended soap your skin is super soft.
Thanks New Directions for carrying such superb items!
Rating: I love all of new directions products so as a whole, I give you 5 stars. I have used other products but keep returning to NDA! I would love some feedback on this product- looking for a more natural ingredient derived lotion base and I'm curious if anyone has diluted it a bit to go into a pump bottle? What were the results when adding a bit of distilled water or other liquids? firstname.lastname@example.org or just reply here :) thanks!

Rating: I received my order of this body butter today and it is amazing. It is good and thick just like I wanted and has NO chemical smell what so ever, to me it really has no smell. It is not greasy and just absorbs right into the skin. I have not mixed it with my colorant and FO yet, but I will let you guys know how that turns out.
Rating: Wow love it ! Best butter ever for my hands :) Not sticky at all.
By:Melissa, Saint- Colomban, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Very grateful there is an option that's petroleum-free; I will have to try some now. My heart just sank when I read the ingredient list for the other Body Butter; nearly everyone in my family reacts poorly to petroleum jelly and mineral oil, so I have built an entire product line around NOT using them. I specialize in gourmand aromas, as well, so... Yay! =^.^=

Rating: I agree with most of the other reviews, this is an exceptional product. To clarify, there is no cocoa butter in the ingredients, rather coconut oil. I agree that the butter has its own powerful scent that smells more citrus rather than cocoa (chocolate) smell. I have found with small portions of this product that it is quite difficult to get EO's to blend. And all of my customers love this butter...very nourishing.

Rating: I ordered this product from maybe over a year ago, and never got around to writing a review until now. Since the product is at least one year old, I'm not sure if there is a new formulation. The cream base itself is wonderful - very creamy, and moisturizing. However, I think the natural cocoa scent, however nice it is, can mask the scent of the EOs that I try to add. Also, I think it would be nice if it sinks into the skin better. Nevertheless, it is a very nice cream. Maybe this applies to just an older formulation of this cream...
By:Tily, Sunnyvale, California Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Sep-2006
Rating: I can't get enought of this body butter. I'm experimenting with your various carrier oils and essential oils to make my own butters. Love them so much! This base is wonderful goes on silky, not greasy at all. I use it all over!
By:Kim, Plano, Texas
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 28-Apr-2009
Rating: Just received my order from NDA and I love this body butter. I hardly smell the cocoa butter, and it just melts into my skin. I think I'm going to love playing with this one!! Can't wait to add stuff to it, to make it our own!! Someone complained about it being hard to get to in the jar it comes in, but we find that a long spatula or a spoon remedy's that problem. I'll post again once I mix some concoctions up!!
By:Rebecca, Mebane, North Carolina Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Mar-2010
Rating: I love this body butter and it is a customer favorite. It does mix well with my essential oil blend. I find it is excellent to use all over, but especially on dry feet! One suggestion: it would be a LOT more user friendly if the gallon container were in a bucket shape, like an ice cream pail, rather than a jar with an opening that is narrower than the base. It is very hard to get out of the container without getting an arm full of product.

Rating: First year for trying bases (getting lazy!) and made a spectacular citrus blend using NDA EOs. May replace my peppermint lotion recipe with this base as it's that good.
By:Dave, Victoria, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: the consistency of this is so luxurious and a little goes a long way, it blends well with everything i've infused it with and absorbs nicely.
Rating: The product performs well and moisturizes like a dream, but I'm with Bernadette's husband...too hard to spread. I play with these products for fun and found this stuff really difficult to get out of the tub and to mix the oils into because it is soooo thick. But if you have dry skin this will solve all of your problems!
By:Gretchen, Phoenix, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2008
Rating: I love this base. It makes my skin soft and silky and my skin. I think it is great in the winter time. My husband complains about the consistency. He thinks it takes too long to spead so he prefers the lotion.
Rating: I love this product. I just received my first order of it and can't believe how rich and smooth it is. No greasy feeling or stickiness. Can't wait to start playing with it. Great product
By:Leah, Elmwood, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I love the product. The natural scent out of the container is refreshing. It can take scent, but you\'ll need more than usual to over power the original scent. The product is thick and creamy and feels great on the skin. I\'ve had great feedback on my trial products so far.
By:Mignon, Greensboro, North Carolina
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Mar-2008
Rating: Wonderful and rich. There's enough of a cocoa butter fragrance that I just don't try to mask it.
By:Christine, Ada, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Feb-2007
Rating: I tried this butter and love it, really. It really works on a dry skin. I gave samples to some friends and we are all in a hurry to buy more. The texture is rich but not sticky, not greasy. This is a fantastic product.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Love the Body Butter by itself, but it's not very good with EO's or any fragrance. No matter what ratio of fragrance, the only scent is the coco butter. Other then the coco butter fragrance, my clients love this Body Butter.
By:Gaelon, Mission Hills, California
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 20-Nov-2006
Rating: This product is great. My husband has very dry skin. I think this helps to make a differance. At 50% off no one should pass up the opportunity to try this.
By:Brenda, Dorchester, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: A great smooth and creamy butter. Glides on and feels wonderful. The smell is very light. I like this much better than the other body butter sold.
By:Julia, Menifee, California
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Nov-2005
Rating: This has become a real hit with my buyers. Packaged in your fancy Calypso jars, this body butter is an outstanding high-end product. It looks expensive in these fantastic jars and then, when you actually apply it, you know that this is quality body butter. I didn\'t add any fragrance to see how it would sell and have not been disappointed with the results!
By:Charlotte, Fuquay Varina, North Carolina
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 04-May-2006
Rating: This butter has a wonderful feeling!!! The only drawback is that I could not get my fragrance oil to hold at the recommended 5ml, even after doubleing the ratio the scent did not hold...all that could be smelt is cocoa butter.
Rating: Love the cocoa butter scent. I might just use this butter on its own!
By:Debra, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: Robust is definately the word!!! This butter is thick and yummy. There is a distinctive smell of cocoa butter, but so far, no one is complaining. Holds EO's and Fragrance well. A keeper!!
By:Kate, Hamilton, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This product is amazing! It has a rich and luxurious consistency but is not greasy and absorbs nicely into the skin. It is unscented but the subtle natural smell is wonderful. I would recommend this product to anyone as you can customize it easily with your own essential oils or natural fragrance - I will definitely be ordering more!
By:Jacqueline, Burlington, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: The Ultra Preminum Body Butter Base is just delicious. It is a dream to work with and upon application, it is non-greasy and leaves a beautiful glow.

Like the description says, the ultra premium products are robust and presto - add your fragrance - you have a lovely body butter for all of us who live to enjoy the moments when that perfect product is created!!!
