Tamanu Butter is a yellow to greenish solid butter made by a combination of cold pressed tamanu oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil. Tamanu oil can be used in skin care products as it contains phospholipids and glycolipids, which are natural constituents of healthy skin and also act as water-binding agents. This butter can be added to creams or lotions to make them ultra-rich and improve the hydration and smooth texture of the skin. This exotic butter spreads well, making it an excellent choice for a massage butter or as a base for hydrating products.
Common Uses: Solid butter, excellent for making pomades, lotions, body butters, and other skin care formulations. Due to its greenish yellow color, this butter can be used to produce beautifully rich, dark soaps.
• Lotions & Creams: 2 - 20 %
• Balms: 5 – 100 %
• Bar Soaps: 5 - 20 %
• Hair Conditioners/ Pomades: 1 – 10 %
When adding butters to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm the butter before incorporating it into the final product. Using a hand blender, you can create a vortex with your cream or lotion and then drizzle your melted butter in, to fully incorporate it. For addition to soaps, the general rule of thumb is 1 tablespoon per pound (15 g / 500 g). As with most raw materials, results may vary, so we strongly recommend preparing small, lab-scale batches prior to any commercial manufacturing.
Shelf Life: Store in cool temperatures (below 25 °C) away from light and moisture in an air-tight container. The product may become very soft above ambient temperatures (e.g., 36 °C), but will re-solidify upon cooling without affecting its functionality. This butter has a shelf-life of one year when stored properly.
