Well Mr Soaperstar and I had a talk last night and it turns out he'd love to get involved in Soaperstar much more than he does already (when you get a package delivered, he's the one that drops it to the Post Office!).
So we decided that today, I'd train him in! We decided to jump right in and make a Body Butter together - this is designed to be anti-heat ... as our Body Butters are 100% butters/oils, obviously, in hot weather, they will tend to melt a little. So, we've added a higher level of harder butters to reduce the "melty" effect (yes, that's a technical term!).
We decided to work with blend of Shea, Mango and Cocoa Butters along with Olive & Sunflower Seed oils as they are soooooo good for your skin. Mr Soaperstar worked to the recipe perfectly and, under minimal instructions from me, made a perfect body butter... he choose a blend of Lime, Litsea, Orange Blossom on a woody/musky base to fragrance it (it's a beautiful, a perfect unisex, Summer scent).
The base butter was a creamy colour but he wanted to colour it with a tinch of purple mica but that sort of turned it silver instead so we choose to call it The Silver Fox! It's very appropriate for Mr Soaperstar as he's a little bit of a silver fox himself! Hope you like the pictures and the story - I have to say it's a really excellent butter and it just smells fabulous!
