Body butter‘s have been around for quite some time now. Still, not everyone knows much about it or it’s benefits vs your everyday lotions. So, here are some questions I get the most.
IS IT GREASY?
Body butter definitely has a different texture to it vs lotion. It’s a thicker emollient and humectant used to soften and moisturize the skin. After a few minutes of penetrating the skin it will lose any greasy feel.
WHATS THE SHELF LIFE?
If stored away properly from direct sunlight high temperatures and moisture, handcrafted body butter’s can last up to 4-8 months. This also depends on your daily usage and the size of the jar. A little goes a long way!
WHY IS ORGANIC SHEA BUTTER, COCO BUTTER ETC SO GREAT?
Shea butter, cocoa butter, mango butter etc are all great because they contain fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and so much more that our skin love love loves! It’s the Humectant ingredients that attract and retain moisture, the occlusive ingredients create a barrier to prevent water loss, and emollients that smooths the skin by filling in the cracks between cells. So, why is shea butter so great? Because Shea Butter is an humectant, an occlusive, and an emollient.
