BODY LOTIONS VS. BODY BUTTERS
BODY LOTIONS VS. BODY BUTTERS
Body lotions are lighter (because they contain water) and provide the thinner type of application. They are usually manufactured with a water based formula and are very lightweight. It will not necessarily moisturize as much or stay on as long as a butter. Body butter has a consistency similar to whipped cream. It lasts longer than both lotion and creme. Body butter products are manufactured using a combination of carrier oils and essential butters and do not contain water. Carrier oils are the substances that are used to hold and deliver the essential ingredients into the skin. Butters are the essential fats and minerals that are extracted from natural ingredients (shea,mango, cocoa etc.) These ingredients (carrier oil and butter) are combined, sometimes with additional essential oils for fragrance, to make body butter. These delicious butters melt upon contact, are absorbed quickly, and are amazingly hydrating and beneficial to our skin.
