The ultimate moisturizing experience! This body butter is made with the same formulation as my original LAVENDER BERGAMOT body butter, but with a different scent. My body butter is concocted with only the highest quality ingredients--no additives, no synthetic oils, no water. The vast majority of moisturizers on the market contain water--too often as a filler or diluting agent. While remaining hydrated is one of the best ways to ensure healthy skin, applying water topically is virtually useless. Luckily, my body butter is formulated to maximize the moisturizing and restorative qualities of each ingredient. This starts, of course, with the butter. I use a mix of shea and mango butters along with coconut oil to create a luxurious base. Ylang ylang is a beautiful exotically floral smelling oil. Its scent is rich, deep and calming. Grapefruit essential oil is combined to provide brightness and top notes. The earthy smell of the unrefined shea butter comes through just slightly to round out the overall scent of this luxurious moisturizer.
** FAIR WARNING. Like the name implies, this product is mostly butter. Like all butters, it will melt if left somewhere hot. So don’t leave it in that sunny window--don’t leave it in your car--don’t leave it in your hand bag. Etc. We literally whip this cream by hand to create it's velvety texture, but once it melts all that hard work is for naught. :(
My body butter is a general-purpose moisturizer that will leave your skin feeling soft and supple. Despite it's whipped texture, a little bit will go a long way. Apply to damp skin after taking a bath or shower for optimal absorption into skin.
