Body Butter: Frequently asked questions

What types of Body Butter are there and what determines a good product?

There are three types of body butter. The first is the original formula, which has a light scent and is great for those with sensitive skin or who want to use it as an everyday moisturizer. It’s also good for people that don’t like scented products because this one doesn’t have any added fragrance (just natural oils). The second type of Body Butter we offer is our “Scented Butters,” which come in several different fragrances such as Vanilla Bean Noel, Pumpkin Spice Latte and Peppermint Bark. These butters contain essential oil blends so they smell amazing. They can be used on their own or mixed into your lotion recipes if you prefer more than just plain shea butter. Finally there are our “Body Frostings™,” which are basically whipped versions of the Scented Butters – these frosting-like textures make them perfect to mix with other ingredients when making soap bars or bath bombs. We carry over 20 different flavors including Chocolate Raspberry Truffle Cake & Caramel Apple Pie… yummmmmmmyyyy.

A good Body Butter should be thick and creamy, but not overly greasy. It should absorb quickly into the skin without leaving a residue or feeling sticky. The scent of the product is also very important; it needs to linger on your body for hours after application so that you can enjoy its fragrance all day long.

Who should use a Body Butter?

Anyone who wants to keep their skin soft, smooth and hydrated. We recommend using it after a shower or bath when your pores are open and the butter can absorb into your skin more easily. It’s also great for dry feet.

Based on what criteria should you buy a Body Butter?

The most important factor is your skin type. If you have dry, sensitive or aging skin, then a body butter will be the best option for you. It’s also great if you suffer from eczema and other conditions that require extra moisture in order to heal properly. Body butters are not recommended for oily or acne prone skins because they can clog pores and cause breakouts; however, some people with these types of complexions do use them without experiencing any problems at all.

If you are buying a Body Butter for the first time, then there is no need to worry. Just make sure that it has all-natural ingredients and contains shea butter as its main ingredient. Also check if the product is cruelty free or not because some companies test their products on animals which can be harmful to your skin in long run. You should also look out for any side effects of using this particular body butter before purchasing it from online stores like Amazon or Flipkart etc..

What are the advantages and disadvantages of a Body Butter?


Body Butter is a thicker, richer version of body lotion. It has more oil in it than regular lotion and therefore will last longer on your skin. The advantage to this is that you don’t have to reapply as often throughout the day (or night).


The disadvantages of a body butter are that it is not as easy to use, and the texture can be hard for some people. It also takes more time to apply than lotion or cream.
