Imagine this... You're at the store looking for the best quality lotion only to find out they are all the same. Each bottle is filled to the brim with watery, thin "lotion" that leaves greasy residue and barley hydrates the skin. I have had this problem for years. I have struggled my entire life with dry cracked skin and I have never found anything that not only moisturized my skin but also left it glowing and soft until I started making body butters.
What is Body Butter?
A body butter is a thick and creamy moisturizing whipped butter. It is called body Butter because it is typically made from a thick high quality butter such as Shea Butter, Mango Butter, Cocoa Butter or Kokum Butter. These butters are typically whipped at high speeds and can be combined with carrier oils such as Almond Oil to create that whipped cream look we are all very familiar with.
A Body Butter is typically used to protect, hydrate and nourish the skin. These butters are usually in semi solid form until it touches the skin, in which the butter will melt allowing for easy application. Most butters should melt on contact from your body heat.
Our butters are natural, organic and chemical free. We use high quality butters such as Mango and Cocoa Butter to create a thick and creamy butter that absorbs quickly into the skin.

How To Use?
Body butters can be used on mostly the entire body expect for the face. Our butters contain ingredients that could clog pores in the face or cause breakout please do not use on your face as a moisturizer.
To use, simply scoop some body butter (a little goes a long way) into your hand and gently rub together. As the butters began to melt gently rub into the desired area until that area of skin is covered and allow it to absorb into the skin. You do not need to wash off or wipe off after you apply.
