about body butter
Body butter is essentially a thicker version of lotion and is used for deeper hydration. There are many varieties, but ours is made with all natural plant butters that are amazing for your skin! The mixture is whipped together to create a beautiful texture that can be piped into a beautiful, frosting like shape. The result: a pretty, sweet smelling body butter that you can feel good about putting on your skin.
Below, we will walk you through the ingredients we use in our body butters :)
Ingredient List Breakdown
Shea butter: The star of the show! A natural butter that comes from the kernels of shea trees. Great for boosting skin moisture and contains fatty acids that improve the skin's natural barrier. Shea butter is filled with antioxidants and has amazing anti-inflammatory properties. High in vitamins A & E and helps prevent free radical damage.
Coconut oil: Solid at room temperature and melts upon contact with the skin. Very moisturizing and high in lauric acid, a fatty acid known for its antimicrobial properties. This helps fight against skin conditions such as acne and other skin infections. Also high in antioxidants and vitamin E.
Kokum butter: Naturally hard butter that comes from the seeds of a kokum tree. Due to its consistency, it helps our butters keep their pretty shape and avoid melting. Kokum butter is moisturizing and soothes inflammation. It's great for skin elasticity and fights aging by accelerating the regeneration of skin cells!
Sweet Almond Oil: Known for its high vitamin E content, sweet almond oil is great for protection against UV damage and preserving skin moisture. It also helps with improving skin complexion by fading scars and stretch marks.
Avocado Oil: Protects against UV damage and increases collagen metabolism thanks to the beta carotene, protein, lecithin, fatty acids, and vitamins A, D & E it contains. Also high in antioxidants with anti-inflammatory properties.
Jojoba Oil: AKA nature's serum! Commonly used in skincare products due to its anti-aging properties and ability to help skin retain moisture. High in forms of vitamin E that help your skin fight oxidative stress. Jojoba oil is noncomedogenic, meaning it doesn't clog pores!
Arrowroot Powder: Natural powder that absorbs excess oil and promotes healing. Great for keeping our body butters non-greasy and creating a luxurious & soft satin texture.
Mica: Natural stone powder that provides pigment and a beautiful glow to our products. Safe for most skin types and is a natural alternative for creating beautiful color!
The result: a beauty product that you can feel good about putting on your skin! :)
