Lotion and body butter are both moisturizers. The right choice depends on your skins needs. Lotion is water based with a more liquid like consistency. Body Butter is oil based with a thicker butter consistency. For the sake of this blog post, we're focusing on Body Butter.
Body Butter provides deep, intense hydration that last! Body Butters typically are more natural than lotions as they normally do not contain preservatives. Well, let me only speak for Blake N Co, our Body Butters do not contain any preservatives or any harsh chemicals. As a matter of fact, the only "chemical" in our body butter is the fragrance oil, and we use very little of it. If that's a concern for you, no worries, we have unscented as well. Our Body Butters are literally food for your skin. Let's get into the ingredients below.
Shea Butter- Where do we start? This is the base of our butters. Shea butter is safe for all skin types. It is extremely moisturizing. It helps promote healthy skin by speeding up cell regeneration. It is anti-bacterial, antioxidant, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory. Basically, that means it's a game changer for problematic skin. It helps soothe eczema, psoriasis and dry itchy skin. It helps fade scars, dark spots and stretch marks. It has UV protection. Can help prevent acne. Helps boost collagen. Soothes sunburn and insect bites. That's not all but you get the picture.
The key to receiving all those benefits is using quality Grade A Raw African Shea Butter. Here at Blake N Co, we only use the finest. We have our butter imported from Ghana.
