Body butter is very moisturizing for the skin. It helps to form a barrier between the skin and the outside world, allowing the skin to hold in the moisture and stay less dry. Body butter also offers protection for the skin, especially when you consider what is contained in traditional lotions. Parabens, a common ingredient in lotions, has been linked to numerous cancers.
Body butter is made from natural ingredients, which consists primarily natural butters of seeds and nut oils. These butters and oils trap moisture close to the skin and prevent harmful external toxins from penetrating. By using body butter, you introduce high levels of omega-3 fatty acids into the skin. These fats are good for you nutritionally, but they are also good for your skin by reducing inflammation. Other Vitamins like A, C and E are present in Body butter as well, offering an additional nourishing boost.
