Body Butter Care

Updated: Apr 4, 2023

You may be wondering what should I do if your Inner U Beauty body butter becomes hardened overtime or less manageable? Hmm, well there is a simple answer to this question.


Inner U Beauty uses two types of butter for our body butter. We use Raw Shea Butter and Mango Butter. In our earlier article, we talked about Shea Butter, where it comes from, and the many benefits of using it. It is more known as a soft butter in its natural form and remains more manageable over time and as it is mixed with oils.


On the other hand, Mango butter is a hard butter in its natural state and requires to be melted down before adding oils to it. If I were to try and blend Mango butter it would not be soft at first. So the process of creating body butter with mango butter requires a lot more handling and patience. It requires to be melted down, then add carrier oils and cooled back down before it is whipped. So after the whipping process, when it becomes packaged and use begins, it will reach its solid state again. when it reaches a solid state again. There is nothing wrong with the body butter, that is just the way it is! The natural process Inner U Beauty uses to make body butter does not include putting lotion, additive bases, or preservatives that may create a translucent or everlasting creamy texture. We pride ourselves in keeping the product as organic and natural as possible!!

The Solution



This process can be used for our Mango butter body butter: Masculine & Smooth and Deep Healing. Deep Peace and Orange Dream and the Unscented versions are crafted with Shea Butter and may not necessarily require these steps over time. But they can also be used. Especially if you reside in a colder climate and your body butter is exposed to those colder temperatures.


STEP 1: Melt the body butter down to a liquid in its existing container. You can do this by using the double boiler method on low-medium heat. (Fill one pot with 1-2 inches of water, add a top pot or heat-safe bowl, then place the body butter jar inside of the top pot or heat-safe bowl) This will allow the steam to heat up the top bowl to slowly heat up the body butter. Be sure to keep an eye on the water level in the bottom pot that it doesn't boil out.


STEP 2: Once the butter begins to melt you can start pouring it in a bowl that you will use for whipping. Keep the original body butter jar because you will reuse this later on. Once it is completely melted into a liquid form place the bowl into the fridge for 15-20 minutes or in the freezer for less. The butter needs to cool down enough to room temperature but not into a complete solid. The edge of the butter will become a creamy white color and the middle you should still be able to see through it (not completely melted but not completely hard).


STEP 3: Whip the mixture again for a creamy texture! There should be no clumps in the mixture and if it looks like whipped cream then you're in business!!


STEP 4: Place the body butter back in the original container and you're good to go! Enjoy your body butter again.


Be sure not to put any water or water-based products into the body butter. Keep it away from moisture or wet areas. Because there are no additives or preservatives added to the body butter, any moisture may cause the body butter to grow bacteria or mold if exposed to too much water, moisture and/or sunlight. This is why we also store it in an amber-colored jar.
