As you might have known that I have ventured into making my own lotions and body butter on a trial basis for now. Let me tell you that it is not a monkey business - needs loads of research and patience.
(But, whatever be the outcome, one always smells great at the end of the day. )
I am giving half an hour each day in my busy schedule to know more and more about ingredients used in homemade lotions and butter. Most of the time, I have to chuck out things as most ingredients are not easily available in India.
But, luckily we have Ekta from Green Junction for Unrefined Raw Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter and Beeswax in India.
I purchased few things from their Ebay.in Shop. And here is what I got.....
Look how beautiful the packaging is.
I loved her attention to details - a cane basket which is recyclable tied with a ribbon Green in color with the brand name. The small gunny bag is made of jute (recyclable and safe for Planet). The tubs are polycarbonate biodegradable food grade pearl pet containers.
I purchased 100 gms Unrefined Raw Shea Butter, 50 gms Unrefined Raw Cocoa Butter and around 100 gms of Beeswax.
While the cube of Beeswax may look tiny and the amount seems less but, the total I ordered is enough to make loads of products. As I am still trying out variations that can work in India so, I am also wasting a little bit now. Sigh...
Other than Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, and Beeswax, Green Junction have
- Mango Butter
- Dead Sea Salt
- Natural Body Loofah
- Uncooked Unprocessed Raw Honey
- Fuller's earth
- French Green Clay
- French Red Clay
- Raw Honey and Glycerin Soap Base ( <---- NEED this! SLS and SLES free, fragrance-free soap....I can make SLS free shampoos using this...maybe....wait...maybe I should master body lotions and butter first.........hmph.....
And they are just expanding!
