I made a really nice body butter out of cocoa butter, almond oil, coconut oil, and a little shea butter.
However, the instant I put it on my body it melts and feels very oily. I added some cornstarch but it hasn't helped much. How do I prevent a body butter from having a very oily feeling?
Thank you!THE ANSWER
Body butter often tends to feel oily on the skin. Try using only the smallest amount and rubbing it in until it's absorbed into your skin.
You might find you prefer making lotion
to body butter for future recipes - lotion is often less greasy than body butter. Use grapeseed oil - it's very light and easily absorbed into the skin.
I hope that helps!
