Shealoe Natural Cream

Our ShealoeTM Natural Cream is a combination of Aloe Vera 1X Juice and Shea Butter Natural which is an unrefined shea butter with a characteristic buttery tan color and aroma. It contains a small amount of two emulsifiers and a preservative and that’s it!  This cream is very dense and thick when it has fully set up.  It is best kept in jars as it is way too thick to be pumped out of bottles.  ShealoeTM Natural Cream can be used as an emollient base for other creations or as a stand-alone emollient cream.  To add to other creations, it can be gently warmed to make it more fluid and allow for easy incorporation.  The resulting cream will be a beige/tan color with a characteristic unrefined shea nut aroma.  If you prefer a product with no color or odor, especially for combining with other ingredients, look at our formula for ShealoeTM Cream made with Shea Butter Refined.


Shealoe Natural Cream







Phase A




Aloe Vera Juice 1X**






Phase B




Shea Butter Natural





Sorbitan Stearate





Polysorbate 60






Phase C




Euxyl PE 9010


**If you want to use Aloe Vera 200X instead of Aloe Vera 1X, mix 4.5 grams (0.079 ounces) of Aloe Vera 200X with 445.5 grams (15.67 ounces) of distilled water, then proceed.

  1. Heat Phase A to 80˚C (176˚F).
  2. Since Shea Butter Natural is not refined by the villagers who make it and is simply filtered, we recommend that you melt the shea butter first and strain it through a coffee filter to remove any potential extraneous matter before adding other Phase B ingredients.
  3. Combine Phase B ingredients and heat until 80°C (176°F).
  4. When both phases reach 80°C (176˚F), remove from heat and pour the water phase into the oil phase. Mixing vessel can be placed in an ice water bath to speed up cooling. Immediately begin mixing with a stick or immersion blender until emulsion has cooled to 60°C (140°F). Keep immersion blender deep in the mixture to avoid entraining air bubbles in the mix.
  5. Add Phase C and mix well.
  6. Continue mixing with immersion blender, stopping and starting immersion blender as needed to avoid entraining air. When the temperature reaches 55°C (131°F), stop mixing with immersion blender and switch to a wire whisk. Slowly whisk, keeping emulsion in motion, until the temperature reaches about 22°C (72°F). This slow mixing helps to remove entrained air bubbles to create a smooth emulsion. Once the emulsion has cooled enough, it will look like cake batter and a drizzle of lotion will leave a trail on the surface.
  7. Package in jars, leaving lids off and covering jars with paper towels to absorb moisture. Cool 8-10 hours and then put lids on jars. Mixture will continue to thicken over the course of a week or so. For faster set up, containers can be place in the refrigerator for several hours.
