Body butters differ from lotions because they don't hydrate like lotion. Body butters lock in moisture for a deeper moisturizing effect. Lotions have water in them, so they hydrate when applied. Body butters are best used after bathing while the skin is naturally hydrated; locking in all that moisture. Lotions are best used when you need a little skin hydration throughout the day. Our body butters are 98% whipped oils and butters with a little beeswax added. The body absorbs the oils and the beeswax seals in the moisture. They are 100% natural, not greasy, and sure to soften the toughest skin. Try one for those rough heels or elbows, or lather up the whole body for seriously soft skin!
