DIY Whipped Body Frosting Recipe for Skin and Hair with Argan Oil and Agave

Mango Coconut Buttercream Homemade Body Frosting Recipe

Beauty DIY - Mango Coconut Buttercream Homemade Whipped Body Frosting Recipe with Agave and Argan Oil

The name on this homemade body frosting recipe is a mouthful, but don’t let that stop you! I combined a delicious blend of mango, coconut and vanilla buttercream fragrance oils for a unique mouthwatering scent! You can enjoy this fantastic body frosting recipe whipped or as a cream. Plus it’s great not only for dry skin but also on thirsty locks. Simply apply it as a hair mask anywhere from ten minutes to overnight, then shampoo out.

I really love how this homemade whipped body frosting made my skin feel so soft and luxuriously smooth. Plus it doesn’t feel greasy like a lot of whipped body butters. Hopefully  you won’t be able to resist the charm of this whipped body frosting recipe either. Here’s how it’s done.

DIY Whipped Body Frosting Recipe for Skin and Hair with Argan Oil and Agave

Mango Coconut Buttercream Homemade Body Frosting Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen


1.5 oz. 76° melt point coconut oil
1 oz. refined shea butter
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.5 oz. refined cocoa butter
.25 oz. argan oil
.25 oz. refined and deodorized/clear jojoba oil
.5 oz. Cyclomethicone
.2 oz. light agave syrup
.25 oz. white cosmetic beeswax
.05 oz. vanilla buttercream fragrance oil
.15 oz. mango coconut fragrance oil


You’ll want to use a digital scale for this recipe to weigh out all of your ingredients.

Start by combining the coconut oil, shea butter and cocoa butter in a double boiler or equivalent. (Here’s a trick you can use if you don’t have one.) Once all the ingredients have melted remove from heat and mix in the remaining ingredients. (If you live in a particularly hot area or it’s the middle of summer you can sub the 76° melt point coconut oil with traditional 92° melt point coconut oil like you find the grocery store to give this a little more solidity as well as to add more coconut-y scent.)

Allow to solidify to a thick lotion/light cream like state then whip with a hand blender until fluffy. Or simply spoon into jars. Keep in mind this does take time to thicken back up. You can speed up the process by putting it in the fridge but this may cause some of the beeswax to separate a bit. On the counter it should reach its final consistency in a day or two.

Now spoon into a 6-8 oz. container of your choice and enjoy!

    Looks fab! Is there an oil you’d recommend to use in place if the argan?

      You can sub with your favorite carrier oil.

    I notice you have quite a few skin care recipes with agave syrup. Can you tell me what the benefit of that is, why it would be in this particular recipe, or a lip recipe for example? I’ve never seen that before. Does it act as a humectant like honey?
    Thanks! Brilliant site!

      It is a humectant like honey and I use it as an alternative because it keeps better in my pantry since I don’t have central/air heat that keeps my home a constant temperature. It’s also a great vegan alternative to honey. It’s also less sticky and easier to work with.

    I can’t get mine to whip at all. I don’t know if I’m not chilling it long enough or what, but it’s not thickening, no matter how long I mix it. 🙁 Also, the beeswax pastilles didn’t melt at all, so I wonder if I should warm the whole thing back up or if that will ruin it? I have totally failed at this seemingly simple recipe. I’m ready to give up.

      Your beeswax has to be melted so it mixes and thickens the product. You can remelt and allow it to solidify more slowly at room temp and then whip.
