Virgin Blueberry Butter starts with Virgin Blueberry Seed Oil and High Melting Point Shea Butter that is formulated into a ready-to-use butter. Most of the other butter like this use a cheap hydrogenated base usually with GMO Soy oil. The finished product has a melting point between 78°F-82°F and melts readily upon contact with the skin for easy application.
-High antioxidant levels: One of the main reasons the skin ages is because of environmental stressors, diet, and more. Blueberries are a great source of antioxidants to help keep your skin looking youthful and glowing.
-Vitamin E: This nutrient is also an antioxidant, but has been found in recent studies to be particularly important for your skin. Certain types of vitamin E, called “tocotrienols” (which are plentiful in blueberry seed oil), have been found to be more potent than vitamin E itself in protecting against environmental stressors. These nutrients also provide nourishing and moisturizing benefits.
-Omega-3 fatty acids: These “healthy fats” are skin care powerhouses. Applying omega-3s to the skin helps diminish the appearance of wrinkles, and helps the skin look firm and plump.
-Fast absorbing: This oil is light and greaseless, and absorbs quickly into the skin, imparting a pleasant sweet blueberry aroma.
-Rejuvenating: Blueberry seed oil is perfect for sensitive skin as it helps the skin look revived.

Formulation Notes: When adding Blueberry butter to creams and lotions, it might be necessary to gently warm it until its texture is soft enough to be incorporated into the final product. Using a hand blender, create a vortex with your cream or lotion and drizzle in the melted butter until fully incorporated and consistently smooth. In addition to soaps, the general rule of thumb is one tablespoon per pound of soap.
