Recipe: DIY Moisturizer Combination Skin

1 tbl. of kokum butter
1 tbl. of cocoa butter
1 tbl. of ivory shea butter
1 tbl. of tamanu oil

Heat kokum butter until it melts, about two minutes in the microwave for big clump and about 1 minute for small pieces.

Stir in cocoa and ivory shea butter. Depending on how hot the kokum butter is, the shea and cocoa may melt on their own, but the mixture might need up to 30 seconds in the microwave.  

Stir in the tamanu oil and shake.

You can experiment with texture by varying the amount of kokum butter (more kokum means a more solid product).

Reheat for 1-3 minutes if the ingredients begin to separate. Store upside down.
