Raw Ingredients - Fats, butters & waxes

If you fancy having a go at making your own products you will need the raw ingredients to make a base. We had great fun making our first lipbalms and salves at home in the kitchen and we hope you will too! If you need any advice please contact us and we will be happy to help.

We only source sustainably produced fats, butters and waxes from suppliers certified by official bodies e.g The Soil Assocation, EcoCert etc. Where possible we choose Fairtrade ingredients.


Candelilla Wax (Euphorbia Cerifera)

This is a plant wax native to North Mexico widely used in lipbalms to give firmness and consistency, and can be used as a vegan alternative to beeswax.

Candelilla wax comes as easy to use beads and can be blended with a vegetable oil/butter of your choice in a bain marie. Add essential oils if you wish and pour into your lipbalm container.

Melting point of candelilla wax: 67-79C.

Organic Coconut Butter, Virgin Raw
(Cocos Nucifera)

"Absolutely gorgeous coconutty aroma!"

Our certified organic virgin coconut butter is like silk on the skin. It melts on contact and is perfect for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. It can be used to condition your hair and alleviate scalp dryness.
Some coconut butters have their natural aroma stripped during processing and then added back in! That's just crazy and we guarantee our coconut butter has it's natural aroma retained. You can tell the difference!
Use it in all variety of recipes to add smoothness, moisturising and easy spreading. You can even use it in your food!

Melting point of organic coconut butter: 25C so must be kept in a cool place.

Unrefined Shea Butter (Butrospermum Parkii)

Our unrefined shea butter (karite butter) is not certified organic but is grown and processed without chemicals or GM products by a fairtrade co-operative in Ghana.

Unrefined shea butter has a distinct natural smoky aroma (if it doesn't it has been refined) and is an creamy colour.

We suggest using it in creams, balms and butters where you need consistency but also superior protective moisturising. Shea butter is reknowned for nourishing dry and damaged skin. We use it as a base in nearly all our creams!

Melting point of shea butter: 40C. Do not heat over 75C or it will become grainy when it cools.
