Perfectly Pillowy Whipped Shea Butter

I’m pretty excited about this simple yet perfectly pillowy whipped shea butter! This two-ingredient formulation came about as part of my work on last spring’s Why is my body butter not whipping? video. I needed lots of b-roll of different body butters being whipped—successfully and otherwise—to round out that video. I mixed up this formulation expecting it to be my too-soft flop example… but it was perfect 😍. It quickly because my most favourite-est whipped shea butter, earning a coveted spot in my desk drawer for frequent application—to my hands! Me + body butter + hands is a rare combo, so you know this is something special. Decadent, scoopy, creamy, lightweight—divine.
