You can easily find a set of simple recipes to make your own body cream.

Here is a natural, fragrance-free home recipe:

  • 3/4 cup of vegetable butter (shea, cocoa…)
  • 1/4 cup of liquid coconut oil

In a bain-marie, melt the vegetable butter and coconut oil. Let cool in the refrigerator until hardened, then whisk the preparation. Done! You can keep it in a jar in the fridge or at room temperature.
