A moisturizing blend of sweet, nutty Brazil Nut Oil and creamy Organic Nilotica Shea Butter is the foundation of this balm. These lipids lend an important fatty acid profile that includes Omega 6 and Omega 9; making them effective choices for body care formulations targeting problematic, damaged skin and hair.
The combination of vibrant, exotic Jasmine Grandiflorum Floral Wax and warm, enticing Organic Vanilla CO2 Extract 26% gives our Vanilla Jasmine Body Balm an exquisite, complex aromatic profile. You can offer budget-conscious fragrant variations by substituting the Vanilla CO2 Extract 26% with Vanilla Spice Plant-Based Fragrance Oil, and the floral wax with other Jasmine floral waxes such as Jasmine Sambac and Jasmine Auriculatum. You can customize various options of this formulation by using other From Nature With Love floral waxes.
Yellow Filtered Beeswax Pellets help to bind and thicken the balm. It also helps build the golden color of your final product. You can formulate a vegan-friendly version by swapping out the beeswax for Candelilla Wax Pellets. or Carnauba Wax Flakes. Since both are harder waxes, you’ll want to reduce your wax percentage to about 20%. Test in small batches until you’ve reached your preferred consistency.
