Body butter / Anti stretch mark cream recipe


This recipe for a home made body butter / anti stretch mark cream is great for dry skin. The main ingredients offer great benefits for your skin: 

  • Cocoa butter helps to moisturise your skin and offers protection with its natural antioxidants
  • Shea butter smoothes the skin and reduces inflammation
  • Coconut oil assists with healing of tissue

As this is quite a rich cream I recommend using it before bed so the oils can be absorbed by your skin during the night and don't leave you feeling sticky all day.

The required ingredients are:

  • 2 tbsp cocoa butter
  • 2 tbsp shea butter
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • Approx. 10 drops of Vitamin E oil



To produce the cream simply add all the ingredients in a saucepan and let them melt on low heat. Once everything has melted use a whisk to combine. Pour the cream into a sterilised glass jar. Once cooled down I usually put mine in the fridge overnight so the mixture doesn't stay liquid and then I pull it out and keep it in the bathroom cupboard.
