Please note: This is a new formulation. You are advised to run a test batch before using it in full-scale production.
Our Soy Butter is white in color with a very mild scent. Soy beans are extremely high in lecithin, sterolins, vitamin E, omega-3 fatty acids and isoflavones. This butter penetrates easily into the skin, which makes it an effective moisturizing agent for hydrating the skin’s moisture barrier while softening dry, chafed, and rough skin. It exhibits good spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or base for a body balm, and it can be added to soaps, creams, lotions, body butters, and more. Use it in your hair care products for added conditioning and shine.
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.
Shelf Life: Slow to go rancid, when the butter is kept closed, at a temperature below 18°C and kept away from light, the shelf life will be up to 24 months from the date of manufacture. Refrigeration is recommended.
Cautions: For external use only; a skin test is recommended prior to use.

By:Coriene, Tillsonburg, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Jan-2013
Rating: Love this butter, will not buy it anywhere else but NDA. I use it in many products of mine. I don't think people give soy enough credit. My fave is to use it to make Body Butter, its so creamy and great on my skin.

Rating: I love this butter! Its very cost effective, it has little to no scent and works really well in my CP soap. Definitely a must have product.
By:Victoria, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 13-May-2013
Rating: A wonderful rich addition to body butters and lotions. The natural scent is almost imperceptible but pleasant. Can be used "as is" or blended with a multitude of other oils in lotions. I am looking forward to trying a little of this in my CP soaps. The price cannot be beaten and NDA's super quick shipping makes buying all these wonderful products addictive! Thanks NDA :)
Rating: You can mix any scent with this butter. It's soft and blends well with everything I put it in and for the price :)
By:Kristen, Val Caron, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 23-Jan-2012
Rating: What an amazing creamy consistency. I needed a no-scent for my floral, fruity, and masculine body butters instead of the usual cocoa or shea butter, and this hit the bill. What a price, too!!! Some of my male colleagues have been using it straight, buttery enough to use right out of the jar, great for eczema and sensitive skin.
By:Joanne, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 01-Mar-2013
Rating: Pleasantly surprised by this butter. I used it straight out of the jar, loved it. Then I decided to blend with some grape seed oil and a few drops of rose oil...makes a beautiful, silky, sweet-smelling butter that's great for dry hands (absorbs and doesn't leave a greasy feeling) and anywhere else that needs moisture. Much less greasy than shea!
Rating: What an amazing price for something so fantastic! I use it my body butter along with avocado oil. Super luxurious and spreads really nice. I find that there isn't any odor to it, so it doesn't interfere with FOs or EOs.
By:Taryn, Edmonton, Alberta Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 16-Dec-2011
Rating: I whipped an eczema cream using this soy butter and coconut oil plus rosemary eo, jojoba oil, calendula oil and baby cuddles fo. The cream is effective in moisturizing the dry scaly eczema rashes my baby had. A very good product and I like that its cheaper to make this cream than the store bought one.

Rating: Amazing feel and amazing price! Used this with shea butter and grapeseed oil to make a creamy whipped body butter. Coming back for more!!

Rating: Amazing product! Scent blends so well and a fantastic price. This is a buy more product.
By:Mark, Belmont, Nova Scotia
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Feb-2013
Rating: I bought this just ouf of curiosity and the price cannot be beat! I was pleasantly surprised by this butter. It's very easy to use, and you don't need to melt it to add EO. The natural smell is OK, nothing too strong, it leaves skin soft and silky, and it goes on smooth.
I added it to some 'miracle whips' I make according to inspiration to give Hemp Seed Oil some more consistency at room temp and it blends well.
I will be purchasing more of this as it's an easy lazzy way to have a nice skin cream without any more effort than scooping it out of the jar!!! (It's permanently in my desk drawer as a hand/programmer elbow cream, alongside my Sandalwood powder that I use as an incense!!!)
By:Elise, Mont-Saint-Hilaire, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Dec-2005
Rating: I whip this up with shea butter, aloe and fragrance and it is a hit. I love that it can stretch the more expensive shea butter, but still makes a luxurious product.
Rating: This product is very easy to use. Good moisture but I find it a bit too oily, very hard to clean my material afterwards.
By:Michele, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 02-Jun-2011
Rating: Soy butter has become my fave addition to all my creams and whipped butters. It adds a luxurious touch to my moisturizing cream and whips up perfectly alongside more expensive Shea and Cocoa butters. At a time when we all have to be more careful with our recipe costings, this is a great find, thanks!!
By:Jackie, Dundalk, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 14-Nov-2009
Rating: I just received my soy butter today... fabulous product, fabulous service. I have so many plans for this butter, the possibilities are end less:-)
Its thick and rich great for skin and my really thick dry curly hair. I'm glad the other reviews were on point. Good job NDA.!
By:Vivenne, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Nov-2010
Rating: This butter is great! I use 100% soy butter with lavender and chamomile eo as diaper rash cream and it did wonders on my baby! Recently I have an auto-immune disorder and caused blister all over my body. When the blister is healing, my skin is really dry and crack. So I use soy butter mix with rosehip and rice bran oil as body balm. It soothe my skin right away. The velvet feeling just like putting silk on my skin. Thank you for offering such a great product.

Rating: Pleasant, "slippy" texture...odd as it sounds, sort of like cream cheese. It melts slowly on the skin, kind of oily at first but will absorb with a little help. No discernible scent. Very excited to try it in a cream!

Rating: This is a beautiful butter, feels wonderful and for such an amazing price
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: Great consistency, and as far as I can tell completly free of any scent. PERFECT for in my body butters, melts quickly and sinks in your skin leaving no greasy feeling.
Rating: Totally loving this butter so far. Bought it as a replacement for Shea since I can't use that anymore due to a severe allergy to tree nuts. Thick white consistency & I found no discernible scent. Tried it as is and it melted immediately with no greasy feel. Made a body butter with it tonight as well and am very pleased with the results! Looking forward to trying it as a whipped butter & in my lip butter as well. I will be purchasing more!
By:Terry, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 31-Oct-2008
Rating: So interseting ! This butter has a "dense" feeling and seems very rich. I will use it in my cp soap with pleasure but will try it "as is" on my skin ... just to try. At first glance, does not leave a greasy feeling on the skin.
By:Louise, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-Feb-2006
Rating: Very smooth and creamy butter! No offensive odor and will work perfectly for my body butters.
Rating: I love it! Very soft pleasant butter. White and no strong odor. Melts easily on the skin and doesn't feel greasy.
