Hello.

Can anyone tell me how much/ what percentage of powdered caffeine to use in a recipe?

Or, maybe post a recipe for a lotion/balm using caffeine powder?

Thanks!

That's a first for me :im Not Worthy: Why would you use powdered caffeine? Is it about getting a buzz on your lip balm?

No, no, no...lol I want to use it for its skin firming, toning benefits.

Now, I also have some coffee butter....mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I made a lip balm with it and can't keep it on my lips. LOL It smells and tastes sooooo good!

Oh, no buzz :im Not Worthy: darn

For firming, honey is great! I'm putting it in some of my creams. Don't know how you'd do it in a lip balm but I bet it could be done. That would be amazing.

HI!

Ohh La La! Coffee is indeed a slimmer! It's great on cellulite.

Now you know why all the "Spa's" charge a gazzillion dollars for something so inexpensive, considering -- YEP PROFIT$$$$ Can we say CA-CHING!.

It's great to use in a shea butter cream and also in bath prep's, ah hell it's good in just about ANY B&B!

For the creams use at about 5%.....I use it at about 5% in bath treatments too

Hope that gets ya rollin'

I bought some powdered caffeine for my lotions and then promptly forgot why and I don't think I ever knew what percentage to use so I am so thankful that you asked about this, Scarlett!

When I used to work in a spa, we had caffeine cream that we used to rub on client's problem areas. They raved about it! The problem is as soon as you stop, your skin goes the way it was before. I don't know what % of caffeine was in the cream.
