This formula makes a light, whipped but firm lip butter, perfect for sun or wind chapped lips.  It contains a lot of Mango Butter, and has Castorlene Gel (a vegetable alternative to petroleum jelly made from Castor Oil) to help protect and repair the lips. The inclusion of Shea Butter Oil, Pure Oat Oil and Vitamin E help to nourish the lips.

This Whipped Lip Butter is made at room temperature, however if you are in a very cold climate, or making this in winter you may want to slightly soften the Mango Butter by giving it 30 seconds in the microwave before you begin.  If using Pyrex, you will find the glass holds the heat, so don't over heat it or it will take ages to cool down again and whip nicely.  FYI our mixture was 27°C when it was whipped and ready to spoon into the jars.

Like all anhydrous products, don't leave it in the glove box, direct sun or other hot environment as it will melt in the Australian summer sun!  Store in a cool spot, away from the heat for it to maintain it's lovely texture to the very end.

Testing the Firmness of the Butter:

We recommend popping a teaspoon into the freezer and then dipping the tip of the spoon into the freshly whipped Lip Butter, this way it will firm up immediately.  Leave on the spoon for 5 minutes of so until it returns to room temperature and test.  If it's a little too firm for you, just add some more liquid oil and continuing beating until well incorporated.

  • Add the Mango Butter to the jug and before you turn the beater on, squish the Mango Butter using the beater to make it softer and easier to whip

  • Done!  The texture looks almost like stiff egg whites and holds it's shape when you remove the beater.
  • Now it is time to check the firmness and lip feel.
  • Remove the teaspoon and allow a minute or so for it to warm up slightly.  Then dip the tip into the mixture and trial it to see if it's the hardness you like - DO NOT PUT A FROZEN SPOON TO YOUR LIPS!
  • If it's too firm add a little more Liquid Shea Oil and beat well to combine.
