Ahh the body mousse, one of Peppy Galore’s most popular and most loved products. This handmade body butter version of the body mousse is wonderful for very dry skin or for any skin during the dull winter months.
The body mousse is a bit of a tricky product, which is why you can’t get it from just any shop out there – it really needs to be handmade. The success of your handmade body butter really depends on the quality of it’s main ingredient – the mango butter. As a natural product mango butter can vary in texture and colour. Sometimes it can be very creamy, and doesn’t want to fluff up easily. At other times it can be very dry and feel grainy to the touch. It doesn’t have a strong scent in itself, but sometimes it can absorb the scent of your essential oils. Talking about a moody ingredient!
