PUFA Free Body Butter (even if you aren’t pregnant)

Mountain Rose Herbs sent me over all the goods to make this whipped PUFA free body butter and I couldn’t be more stoked with the recipe I created for you!

Incase you’re wondering what the heck a PUFA is, it’s a fatty acid group that is highly unstable (oxidizes/goes rancid) in the presence of heat, light and oxygen. Basically, life. So, we don’t want to put products that contain these oils on our skin! Especially if we are going out in the sun.

If you’re not so much the DIY person, I highly recommend these PUFA-free skincare products (code SIMPL10) 🙂

Common PUFA oils

  • canola oil
  • cottonseed oil
  • rapeseed oil
  • sea buckthorn
  • sunflower seed oil
  • safflower oil
  • basically any vegetable oil

These products can cause DNA breaks, skin damage, oxidation and the list goes on. Imagine rubbing Crisco all over your body and laying out in the sun.. yeah, that’s what’s happening here!

Ever heard of “age spots” or “liver spots”? These are directly tied to PUFAs whether they are rubbed on your skin or eaten. That’s why I leave them out of this PUFA free body butter!

PUFA-free products I used

What I love about these products is that they come in dark amber glass bottles which prevents the blue light from penetrating and potentially damaging these precious products!

Jojoba oil is extremely hydrating. Shea butter + cacao butter is a dream team combo and the smell us just heavenly. Then, vitamin E oil directly fights against oxidation so it’s perfect for your skin. Vitamin E is used on scars, dry skin and other skin irritations because it’s so healing.

The PUFA free body butter recipe

  1. Melt down the shea butter and cocoa butter
  2. One melted, add to a bowl with remaining ingredients
  3. Give a light stir and put in the fridge for 1 hour
  4. Pull out and use a mixer to whip
  5. Transfer into cute metal or glass containers

I used these for Christmas and mama gifts! This PUFA free body butter isn’t just for mamas though. It’s so so hydrating and my husband is obsessed with it. I use it for dry lips and I put it on after every bath and shower and I got NO stretch marks!

** I ended up not adding in the avocado oil, that was from a test round (if you see it listed in the photo above)

After two months of working with Ashlee, we got pregnant. She's kind, diligent and truly invested in my family and health. We tried for over a year to get pregnant with no luck after our first baby. I definitely recommend!

Ashlee is amazing! She is compassionate and knowledgeable. She helped me understand my body on a whole new level which lead to healing and a pregnancy. My son is now 1-year-old and I am so thankful for all I learned and continue to learn from Ashlee!

Within a month of fully following Ashlee’s protocol I was feeling better than I’ve ever felt before. No more fatigue, headaches, mood swings, you name it! I have honestly never felt better AND was able to get pregnant after previously not being able to. I cannot say enough about her and the knowledge she has. Thank you forever, we’re so excited for our baby!
