Oat Butter is a soothing blend of rich, silky Oat Oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil, to create a soothing butter with a dense viscosity and smooth texture for those with very dry and flaky skin. It is perfect for lotions, creams, and body butters to make them ultra-rich. It makes a particularly helpful addition to products designed for baby care and sensitive skin. With its excellent spreadability, it is ideal as a massage butter or base for skin care products.
• Lotions & Creams: 2 - 20 %
• Balms: 5 – 100 %
• Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %

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.
