Butters & Waxes
Butters and waxes are commonly used in cosmetic making to add nourishment and hydration to the skin. They can also be used to create a protective barrier on the skin to lock in moisture and to add texture and consistency to cosmetics. Some popular butters used in cosmetic making include shea butter, cocoa butter, and mango butter. Waxes such as beeswax and carnauba wax can also be used to add firmness to cosmetics and as an emulsifier to bind ingredients together. Butters and waxes can be used in a variety of cosmetic products such as lotions, creams, lip balms, and even make-up. When using butters and waxes in cosmetic making, it is important to use the proper amount in order to achieve the desired properties in the final product. It is also essential to use a high-quality, pure form of the butter or wax to ensure the best results for the skin.
