Butter Easy (Sunflower Cosmetic Wax)




This ingredient has replaced our original Butter Up!
Butter Easy (Sunflower Cosmetic Wax) is a natural structuring agent from made from pure sunflower oil which offers good emolliency.  It is excellent in a simple oil and wax formula, turning, for instance, Fractionated Coconut Oil into a thicker, creamy moisturiser.  It is a useful addition to add body to many forumlations that you prefer to have a high oil content, but not end up with a product that is too runny. 

We have trialled this lovely ingredient as a straight one oil viscosity increaser in Fractionated Coconut Oil, Jojoba and Shea Butter as a test for increasing the thickness and to keep graininess at bay in the Shea Butter (which our previous Butter Up! product did).   The best results to combat shea graininess were achieve by placing the filled lip pots or jars straight into the fridge or freezer which will help eliminate grains.  The Fractionated Coconut Oil "Butter" was quite impressive, and can also be used as a stand alone product, or as an ingredient in which to carry actives, essential oils or fragrance.

Butter Easy is especially suitable for anhydrous products including:

  • All oil based lip products and balms including lipstick
