Gracefruit® Thickening Powder luxurious natural butters

Are you looking for a way to create your own luxurious natural butters? Our Gracefruit® Thickening Powder is the perfect solution. This amazing structuring agent will transform any oil into a beautiful butter. Just add 30% Gracefruit® Thickening Powder to any oil, heat to melt (we like using a microwave for this), and then stir well. The mixture will cool into a gorgeous, natural butter.

We love Gracefruit® Thickening Powder for creating butters that are not commercially available. For instance, we created a lovely cucumber butter by blending 30% Gracefruit® Thickening Powder and 70% cucumber seed oil. Gracefruit® Thickening Powder also works very well with our oil-based infusions, too. 30% Gracefruit® Thickening Powder and 70% aloe vera infusion creates a fantastic, skin-loving butter with all of the benefits of aloe.

Want to make an anhydrous body butter without adding hard oils or waxes? It's easily done with Gracefruit® Thickening Powder. Again, the 30/70 ratio works perfectly. And it's economical! At just £1.89 for 100g, Gracefruit® Thickening Powder is a great way to turn inexpensive oils into extravagant butters.
