Body butter is a deeply moisturizing type of lotion that is typically thicker in consistency than lotion. It typically will have naturally derived butters included in the ingredients like cocoa butter, mango butter or shea butter (our personal favorite).
Many butters will have other hydrating ingredients (we add avocado oil to ours) to maximize the impact on dry skin. Butters help protect your skin from moisture loss and help dry, rough skin recover.
Body butter is usually thicker than lotions because of the dense nature of it's base ingredients like shea butter. Although our body butter isn't greasy, it is heavier than lotion, so we recommend using it before bed, but most of our customers feel it's light enough for daily use.
