A Guide to Moisturising Body Butters

Body butter is a thick moisturising cream that every woman should use as part of their body care routine – but what is body butter exactly? And what is body butter used for? Keep reading to find what it does, how to use it, and where to find the best body butter for you.

What Is Body Butter?

Body butter is a rich, deeply nourishing cream that is used as a moisturiser. It usually contains a combination of natural carrier oils (like Shea, Cocoa or Mango Butter) that help to deeply nourish and hydrate the skin.

 

Typically formulated without water, body butters have a much thicker consistency than lotions and moisturisers.

What Does Body Butter Do?

Body butter hydrates, smooths and nourishes. The carrier oils and fatty acids penetrate deep into the skin to restore and retain moisture. Once applied, a protective layer is formed, helping to lock in moisture for soft, healthy and hydrated skin.

What Are The Benefits Of Body Butter?

The benefits of body butter include:

  • Deeply moisturising the skin
  • Hydrating dry areas
  • Helping skin to retain hydration
  • Forming a protective layer on the skin’s surface to lock in moisture
  • Reducing redness and irritation
  • Offering anti-ageing properties
  • Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and stretch marks
  • Softening and smoothing the skin

How To Use Body Butter

The best time to apply body butter is after a shower when skin is still slightly damp. Scoop a generous amount from the tub and use circular motions to gently massage the butter in until fully absorbed. Pay particular attention to extra dry areas, like elbows, knees and ankles.
