Body Butters are amazing, it’s the only way to describe them! If you are already familiar with this product, need I say more but if you’re unfamiliar with this amazing stuff, let me explain.
Good Stuff Body Butter is made made primarily with butters, hence the name. There are several different varieties of butters, each having it’s own unique attributes. My favorite, and the one that I use as the base for my body butters, is shea butter. Shea butter comes from the seeds of the fruit of the Karite or Shea tree that thrives in Africa. This butter is solid at room temperature but when combined with coconut oil and other hydrating nutritious oils, it can be whipped into a luxurious ultra-nourishing skin supplement.
Body butters are rich in vitamins A, E, & K & will heal cracks, wind-burned or chapped skin, sunburn, diminish calluses, reduce fine lines, diminish scars and bring a glowing luster to your skins surface.
The Good Stuff Basic Body butter combines shea butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia nut, avocado oil, olive oil and or rice bran oil. I’ve chosen these oils simply because they absorb quickly and offer amazing protective/softening qualities as well as the ability to restore the skin’s natural barrier function.
Below is a list of some other ways that I use shea body butter…
- Massage butter
- Cuticle cream
- Chapped lips (I use shea as the base in my lip balms)
- Lotion bars (pictured far right) and lotions (see lotion page)
- Reduces the appearance of scars
- Homemade deodorant
- On the hair or scalp to promote hair growth
- On eyelids before applying makeup
