Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.

Olive Butter is designed for topical use, and is formulated with 100% pure, cold-pressed Olive Oil, which is very high in vitamins and a wide variety of nourishing fatty acids. non-GMO Soy Butter affords an odourless white base that is soft at room temperature but very rich, and it melts quickly on contact with the skin. This particular butter is very rich and smooth, and deeply hydrates dermal layers.

Common Uses: Olive Oil, so popular in the Mediterranean basin for skin-care and beauty products since time immemorial, aids with the re-hydration of dry or, more specifically, mature skin and hair. Especially helpful to nails and cuticles, it may be used to enhance a variety of formulations including lotions, creams, after-sun products, conditioners, body butters, luxury soaps, baby-care products and lip balms.

Recommended Usage:
Lotions & Creams: 5 - 20 %
Balms: 5 – 100 %
Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
Hair Conditioners: 2 – 5 %

When adding a butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until melted or very soft in texture, and can be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in your melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. For addition in soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound (15 ml/500 g). 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.

Wow! Such a lovely butter, I wish I had ordered more initially! It goes on so beautifully, absorb/ well in to the skin and I am loving it as a key ingredient in my body butters - so many possibilities with this butter. It's the star of my baby line. It's really nice mixed with Shea butter. This will be a staple in my ingredient list - thank you for the fantastic product!

I used this butter for my dry skin, It worked pretty well. It is a good alternative when you don't have enough time to prepare your own cream.

Five stars for this butter. There's everything good about the batch I received. It's harder than I thought it would be but it melts on contact -- this all by itself is a great lip balm or ANY balm. The backs of my hands always get the first test of any product and they are really smooth right now. My purchase today was aloe and olive butter and they both get the same review: five stars, fragrance-free, smooth, easy to work with, will DEFINITELY purchase again.

This is the BEST butter I've ever used so far in my life....creamy, soft texture, no need to dilute with other ingredients and makes the perfect hand balm, non-greasy, a very subtle scent of olive smells divine! Now I've got stuck with this butter.... :)

I am reordering this the olive butter and it is excellent. The order I had previously was not grainy in the least but super creamy and perfect for eczema! I love that I can use this without needing to mix it with other butters and there is little to no scent with it!

Well the appearance of the olive butter was grainy. One look and I was apprehensive as it looked a lot like a clump of wet jojoba beads. But it melted quickly on my skin and there was no greasiness after I rubbed it in. The scent is almost nil. Good product.

The olive butter is great for under eye cream, and on chapped skin. A little goes along way.

This is an amazing butter! I made a foot cream with this olive butter for my Mom who has foot problems. I added peppermint and calendula essential oils to it and my Mom can't stop saying great things about how smooth and nice her feet are now since using it. I definately recommend this to everybody.

What a wonderful greenish smooth butter ! Inspiring for making "something special". Melts in the skin and the very light clean smell could not be a problem for any use. Je ne regrette pas d'avoir acheté de ce beurre d'olive : il est de couleur verdätre et m'inspire pour formuler un produit spécial. Je vais en recommander, c'est évident ! Another marvelous product from New Directions !

This is the first product from New Directions that i have been disapointed in. The olive butter is very, very grainy (so much so, that it almost feels exfoliating) and i feel that the description is misleading. The grains take a long time to melt into the skin...i would NOT say its \"ideal for massage butter\" and i can\'t see how it would be good in lip balms being so grainy. i think in the description area they should mention the graininess, because i know i would not have purchased it knowing it may be grainy.

New Directions Aromatics Response:

Olive Butter is not what we would consider grainy. While we respect each customer\'s opinion, this is the first complaint on this product despite hundreds of sales throughout North America.

This olive butter is an excellent addition to gylcerin soaps. Also very nice for use alone, combined with essential oils.
