    So I bought this stuff. Pumpkin seed butter. Didn't know what is was, but it was a decent price - so I figured what the heck! Now that it's in my house I've been trying to do some googling about it and so far come up with squat! I was hoping somebody here might be able to shed some light on this stuff. I've already used it in a HP soap as the SF (5%). It's only a couple days old, and it looks pretty good! Firming up nicely :)
    Thanks guys!

    According to its MSDS this is Pumpkin Seed oil and hydrogenated vegetable oil.....

    Thanks everyone! All the info I could find was either the sammich spread type of butter (Not what I was looking for :p), or the liquid oil. I used it in a HP green tea and lemongrass as I the SF. I'm actually really happy with the results thus far! :D
    Here's a pic... Can ya tell I'm a noob?! I can't contain my excitement! Eek! ImageUploadedBySoap Making1383707178.631301.jpg
    They're still curing, and not the prettiest things I've seen, but my third attempt at soap - and my first HP.

    Looks good! You'll have to let us know what you think of it after it cures.

    Pretty...

    With New Directions they have MSDS for every ingredient they sell and it will tell you what it is composed of if it is more than one ingredient like this butter. I save the MSDS on my computer so I can review it later if I need to...

    I haven't seen pumpkin seed butter before - but have used the oil. It's very pricey in Europe, and I didn't feel that it added enough to the soap to warrant the price tag, and the dark color was difficult if I wanted a lighter colored soap, so I used it up on salads instead! (It tastes great, and is full of antioxidants.)

    Many of the more what I call "exotic" butters such as coffee, pumpkin etc. are made from the oils of the mentioned product and hydrogenated vegetable oils. Here is what I found at Lotioncrafter, I am going to try it to make butter with my infused coffee oil.
