About the ingredients.

Matcha green tea is rich in antioxidants that are beneficial in supporting skin health. It can help to reduce inflammation as well as free radicals that accelerate skin aging.

Like matcha green tea, camellia (tea seed) oil also contains valuable antioxidants. Not only does it help to moisturize skin, but camellia (tea seed) oil can also help to improve skin’s tone and texture as well as reduce the appearance of aging.

I’ve also included oat butter in my matcha green tea butter bars recipe for it’s hydrating and soothing skin care properties. Somewhat softer than shea butter, oat butter makes a wonderful addition to homemade skin care products formulated for sensitive skin.

Matcha Green Tea Butter Bars Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. candelilla wax
.5 oz. cera bellina wax
2 oz. oat butter
2 oz. camellia (tea seed) oil
.05 oz. matcha green tea
.15 oz. green tea fragrance oil

Notes & Substitutions:

My matcha green tea butter bars recipe calls for cera bellina wax. Cera bellina wax is a beeswax derivative in which the free fatty acids have been converted to polyglycerol esters. As a result, cera bellina softer is softer than regular beeswax. It also adds a smooth, creamy texture to lotions and lip balms. When added to oils it will cause them to gel.

Recommended usage for cera bellina wax is up to 20% in lotions and lip balms and up to 29% in oils for an oil emulsion. If you’d like to learn more about cera bellina wax, Humblebee & Me blog has a wonderful guide to this unique ingredient here.

If you do not want to use cera bellina wax, you can substitute this wax with regular beeswax. Alternately, if you’d like a plant-based vegan matcha green tea butter bar, you can omit the cera bellina wax entirely and use 1 oz. of candelilla wax instead.

Should you not have or do not wish to use oat butter, you may substitute this ingredient with another hydrogenated butter. Alternately you can also substitute the oat butter with refined shea butter.

Camellia (tea seed) oil can be swapped out with fractionated coconut oil and, should you desire all natural matcha green tea butter bars, you can substitute the fragrance oil with .05 oz. essential oil of your choice.

It is, however, important to note that while making substitutions will still a yield a similar solid lotion bar as my matcha green tea butter bars recipe, the final properties and feel of the end product may differ.

Finally, I specifically used the matcha green tea from Adagio Teas for this recipe. I’ve been a customer of Adagio for over a decade and have always trusted their brand, enjoyed their products and loved their rewards program. (You can use GC code: 8554747659 for $5 off your first order.) However, if you already have a favorite supplier for matcha green tea, then that will work as well!

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the candelilla wax and cera bellina wax into a small glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat the waxes in the microwave at 40% power until melted. (Alternately you can also use a double boiler.)

Once melted, remove the waxes from your heat source. Weigh out the oat butter and stir into the melted waxes until it liquifies.

Next, weigh out the camellia oil and stir into the previously melted ingredients. Follow with the matcha green tea and the fragrance oil, weighing each ingredient first to get the right amount.

Mix well to fully incorporate all of the ingredients and to remove any clumps of matcha green tea. Then pour into your mold of choice.

I used a square silicone ice cube tray for my mold and evenly filled five of the six mold cavities about 1/3rd of the way full.

Once your matcha green tea butter bars have fully hardened, remove them from the mold. Then wrap your matcha green tea butter bars tightly in foodservice film.

If you are wanting to sell the matcha green tea butter bars you’ve made, you will need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
