Cotton Candy Whipped Shea Butter

Cotton Candy Whipped Shea Butter


For the Shea Butter Base:

For Coloring and Scent:

  • Pink or light blue cosmetic-grade mica powder (for color, adjust as needed)
  • Additional cotton candy fragrance oil (for scent, adjust to your preference)


  • Large mixing bowls
  • Hand mixer or stand mixer
  • Measuring cups and spoons
  • Mixing spatula
  • 8oz containers or jars (50 of them)


  • Prepare Your Workspace: Ensure your workspace is clean and sanitized. Wash your hands thoroughly.
  • Melt the Shea Butter: In a microwave-safe container or a double boiler, melt the shea butter until it becomes a liquid. Be careful not to overheat it. Start with 30-second intervals in the microwave or use low heat if using a double boiler.
  • Combine Oils: In a large mixing bowl, combine the melted shea butter, coconut oil, jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil, apricot kernel oil, and vitamin E oil. Mix them together thoroughly.
  • Add Fragrance: Add the cotton candy fragrance oil to the mixture and stir well. Adjust the amount to achieve the desired scent strength.
  • Add Arrowroot Powder (Optional): If you want a less greasy feel, add the arrowroot powder to the mixture and blend well.
  • Color Your Shea Butter: To achieve the cotton candy color, gradually add pink or light blue cosmetic-grade mica powder to the mixture until you reach the desired color. Mix thoroughly.
  • Whip the Mixture: Use a hand mixer or stand mixer to whip the mixture. Start at a low speed to avoid splattering and gradually increase the speed. Whip until the mixture becomes light and fluffy, resembling the texture of whipped cream.
  • Taste and Adjust: Taste a small amount of the whipped shea butter to ensure you're satisfied with the fragrance and color. Adjust as needed.
  • Fill Containers: Scoop the whipped shea butter into 8oz containers or jars. Ensure they are clean and dry before filling.
  • Label and Store: Label your containers with the product name and ingredients. Store them in a cool, dry place to maintain their texture.
