Foam Bath Butter MPGF / Crystal OPC

Our Foaming Bath Butter is Paraben-Free and Propylene Glycol Free. With the demand for skin care products to be as natural and as environmentally friendly as possible, Stephenson has developed a new formulation for its Foaming Bath Butter.

This is the latest technology in cream soap. It offers both versatility and true luxury. It cleanses while moisturizing, and has a very mild pH of 5.5 - perfect for facial applications.

This product still maintains high performance and stability and does not compromise on quality or price. As a base it provides an entire world of possibilities: whipped into a parfait, colored and layered, as a bath butter, as a body meringue and as a sugar or salt scrub! The list is endless. Easily add essential oils, fragrant oils, other natural butters, and other cream and lotion base with this product you are limited only by your imagination!

Features:
Carrier Oils - Adding up to 2oz (60ml) of a carrier oils (Grape Seed, Evening Primrose, Sweet Almond, Avocado or Sea Buckthorn if you're looking for a really exotic product!) per pound of base has made the foaming bath butter more moisturizing, particularly on products being applied to the face.
Sugar / Salt - Sugar or salt can be added until the product becomes supersaturated. Once the salt or sugar stops melting, it will remain in crystal form and act as a wonderful exfoliater.
Fragrance - The Foaming Bath Butter is incredibly robust, and will accept a fragrance load of up to 5% essential oil or fragrant oil. Consumer applications indicate a load of 2 to 3% is preferred.
Other Butters and Bases - Try adding Shea, Mango or Cocoa Butter, or try adding some of our exotic Amazonian Butters! The Foaming Bath Butter will also accept small amounts of other creams, lotions, and moisturizers!

A Product Advisory: Whenever you purchase anything in a block size, particulate matter will gravitate to the bottom during the pour, just as long-chain fatty acids will gravitate to the bottom of a barrel, making the oil less viscous at the top, and even tar-like at the bottom. For this reason, we recommend cutting or scooping down to the bottom of the product, and not just skimming the material from across the top. In this way, the end product should have the consistency you expect throughout the use of the whole block.

IMPORTANT NOTE: New packaging for this product has instructions to melt the product, which may then be poured into molds or blended into other M&P bases to increase lather. However, the product may continue to be used as is or whipped while cold for creamy formulations – heating it is not necessary.

Caution: Foaming Bath Butter will double in volume when whipped using a blender or cake mixer. However, it can collapse if whipped to more than double its original volume. Under no circumstances should this product be discharged at temperatures higher than 122 degrees Fahrenheit (50 degrees C.); 118 degrees F is the preferred temperature. At temperatures below 113 degrees Fahrenheit (45 degrees C.), the product hardens.

Basic Parfait Sample Recipe:
2 Pounds Foaming Bath Butter
4 Oz of Sweet Almond Oil (2 oz per pound of Foaming Bath Butter)
Color to suit
Fragrance or Essential Oil to suit

Cut 2 Pounds of the Foaming Bath Butter and place in a mixing bowl. Using a cake mixer, slowly break down the product into a soft, consistent form. Add 4 oz of the Sweet Almond for extra moisturizing properties and start mixing at a higher speed until the product doubles in volume. Simply add color and fragrance to suit, and voila! You have created an exotic bath parfait with endless possibilities. Place in your open container of choice and allow 24 hours for the product to set. If you’re feeling really adventurous, try layering different colors and selling as a Foaming Body Parfait!

I've tried foaming bath butter from various suppliers. This is by far the best I've come across. Not only is it a thicker and richer bath whip, but it also bubbles very nicely. Other companies versions cannot compare to New Directions formula. Would highly recommend this!

I am still playing with this, I do like it as a body wash. It needs to be thinned out for shaving and it works well. I put peppermint EO and guava powder into my first batch. I am looking forward to trying other mixtures. I did not find this great as a shampoo, but REALLY like it as a body wash ;)

Why make from scratch, when ND has made the perfect product for foaming bath recipes. So easy to work with too. I am having so much fun with this product and have made recipes using vanilla cream fragrance oil (smells like cupcakes) with it for gifts and everyone can't get enough. Love the way this feels and it doesn't take much to lather up on a loofah or in your bath. Definitely ordering more and saving time.... Thanks ND.

I was pretty disappointed in my last batch. It was incredibly grainy and no matter what I did, I couldn't eliminate the grains. I even tried to melt it and stirred continually until cool. The tub I previously purchased was wonderful. Then I noticed that this last one was from the same batch. Maybe it was getting old? Strange though, because I just finished up the previous tub and was still ok. That being said, when it's not grainy, I love this product for scrubs and face washes. And maybe more, except, I can't test anything with a grainy product. I'm giving it 3 stars but it would get 5 for when it's not grainy, 1 when it is.

This foaming bath butter is one of my best selling products! My customers LOVE how foamy it is and just a little scoop on the loofah goes a long way. Even the most sensitive skin types can enjoy this soap. I use the Blue Raspberry Frag Oil and a little blue and purple food colouring for a layered parfait soap treat! Thanks NDA for making such amazing products.

I recently used this product to make shaving cream and sugar scrub. I absolutely love it as the scrub - it was a little tricky to find the right amount of "whipping" to get the perfect consistency but once you get it, it's amazing. The scrub has been a huge hit.

Just starting using this - and testers love it. I've used it as a face scrub, as a shampoo and as a body scrub. Have no complaints - other than it does have a smell that you need to cover. Or I find anyway.. (that could just be me). Couldn't market this as scent-free, because it does have a "sterile" smell...and it has no added scent. But that would be something that finnicky people might comment on... Just saying. (I notice it, but I don't mind it). But I wanted to say - that I use to buy a clarifying shampoo to strip my hair once in a while from buildup of city water. NOT ANY MORE. This is a very versatile product and I am happy with it. And I am VERY happy with the new re-formulating that has been done to make this product what it is.

I bought the 2.3kg one. The plastic tub that it comes in is huge. However after I had opened it, I had realized that it was half full. It had pieces of foaming bath butter cut up in various sizes put in it. It did weigh 2.3kg though, but the giant tub that is used to store it is misleading for first time purchasers. It has one piece of tape securing the lid on so it is hard to tell if the product was opened previously or not.

I have been dabbling in hand made products for two years now and make many differnet soaps. Last month I thought I'd try the foaming bath butter. I was amazed how easy it was to transform it into a mens shaving butter by adding bamboo and teak fragrence oil and a touch of peppermint essential oil. My husband is hooked and the two others I gave samples to. It now will become part of my men's line I created last year.

I just tried this product to make cupcake soaps and it's so easy and fun to work with. My cupcake soaps look so real and edible, I will definitely be buying this again. It's a little messy, like real icing would be, lol, but at least it washes easily with water. Then again, I'm pretty messy, so it could just be me :) I was unsure when I saw it, but when I mixed it, I was happy with how it was turning out, and when you add color, wow. The brilliant Blue looks amazing with it :) I haven't tried the other colors, yet.

I make cream shampoo with this soap base by adding oil, pro vitamin B5, honeyquat, etc. I was originally intended to use it as bodywash but figured out it works really well as shampoo too! It holds scents well and the quality is just amazing...gentle, creamy. My husband loves shaving cream that I make with this. This product has lots of potentials.

I love love love this product BUT, I would like to know if there is anyway to thin it out further (beyond adding the 4 oz of oil per lb)? I'm after more of a soft whipped cream consistency, thick, but a more of a cream or lotion texture. If not, it's not a big deal, this stuff is AMAZING!!

This stuff is the BEST! I ahve never had s much fun creating products as I do with this. It's just so versatile. It takes scets, colour and other addtives very well. The possibilites are only limited by your imagination. It lathers well and leaves your skin quite soft. And if you have sensitive skin, you can still use it just don't put any scent or colouring and it still works great. Amazing, amazing product.

Anything I make with this sells like crazy!! It is definitely a success in my business, my customers love everything made from this product. The best seller is a creamy facial scrub with jojoba beads or apricot shells & almond oil, works like a charm and never seems to bother the skin. I absolutely love that it is free of propylene glycol & parabens, as well as SLS, I never would have tried it otherwise as I base my business avoiding these ingredients.

Wow, is this stuff ever cool! Just a word of caution, though... I find that fragrance takes a day to "develop" once it's been whipped in, so if it doesn't smell very strong as first, let it sit for a day, smell it again, then proceed accordingly. Otherwise, I'm starting to think it's impossible to screw anything up while using this stuff. Extremely versatile. The 5lb. bucket isn't enough!

Super stuff. Has the look and feel of heavy whipped cream, and feels wonderful on the skin. Makes one of the best facial scrubs I have ever used, and I have sensitive skin! Carries scent very well, and looks professional in clear containers. Not a product you would want to hide! Especially if you add exfoliators, such as ground apricot kernels, or even jojoba spheres. This product sells it's self, so if you are in business, allow your customers to try it out!
