Body Butters - Benefits for your skin and hair

Updated: Apr 15

WHAT ARE BUTTERS?


Butters are derived from natural sources such as nuts, seeds, kernels and beans. The two main components of a butter are the minerals from their natural ingredients and the natural oils that carry the minerals to the areas of application. The combination of minerals and oils creates a barrier against harsh elements that have drying effects on our skin and hair. Butters typically do not contain water, otherwise they would be emulsions, which are known as lotions. Because butters have no water content, they do not need synthetic preservatives.
