Whipped Cupuaçu Passionfruit Body Butter

It’s been positively ages since I made a whipped body butter—since late 2020! This one was inspired by some gifted ingredients from Lavida Oils; their cupuaçu butter is utterly lovely and has re-ignited my long-standing love for this uniquely lovely butter. Cupuaçu butter is rich and smooth, but I don’t find it to be particularly greasy. It leaves my skin feeling soft and nourished, with a rather novel silicone-like finish. I immediately wanted to combine it with the oils from Lavida to create a beautiful tropical-inspired body butter, and that’s what we are doing today!
