Stretch It Out

Ingredients:

10g Beeswax
15ml Coconut Oil
25ml Apricot Oil
15ml Almond Oil

We created this baby in summer time, as all of our friends were asking about remedies for irritating stretch marks ahead of getting out those bikinis and hot pants. Our Stretch It Out butter contains beeswax, which helps replace the skin's elasticity, and coconut oil, which contains antioxidants that fight free radicals and nourish, both reducing the appearance of those pesky marks. The apricot kernel oil is very moisturising but super light, which allows the whole butter to smooth on just perfectly.

How To:

1. Melt the beeswax down over a bain-marie (a bowl within a bowl)
2. Melt the coconut oil down in a separate bain-marie then combine with the beeswax while still hot
3. Add the remaining oils, stir well and decant into a jar
4. Place in the fridge to cool thoroughly before using

Helpful Hint:

Being wax and oil based, there wasn’t a need to add a preservative. However, excessive finger digging might result in contamination, so make sure your hands are clean and dry and if anything starts smelly funky, toss immediately.
