Backyard Bees body butter is a thick and nourishing body moisturizer. It is very effective but is different than a water based lotion.
About Our Body Butter
Our Backyard Bees Body Butters are natural moisturizers. They have no water and a high concentration of plant oils.; they have no chemical preservatives.
Both of our body butter variations are plant based with a luscious mix of oils, real Vitamin E and scented with essential oils for a fresh and natural scent.
We use organic shea butter and coconut oil, along with mango butter, jojoba oil, rose hip seed oil and natural Vitamin E (also called tocopherol).
Lotion, lotion bars, or body butter?
A lotion is a water based product that requires the addition of chemical preservatives to prolong the shelf life. Backyard Bees does not make a water-based lotion at this time.
We do make solid lotion bars in a stick format; they are also called massage bars. Lotion bars do not leave your skin feeling greasy and work really well at protecting your skin from the elements.
The texture of body butter is closer to a traditional lotion but because there is no water in it, it is very thick.
Customers love using body butter at nighttime to give it time to soak into the skin. They also love the texture and scent; both varieties smell so fresh!
Two options for body butter bee-liciousness!
SUPERHERO: naturally made with with shea butter, coconut oil, mango butter, jojoba oil, vitamin E (tocopherol), essential oils of rosemary, spruce, fir needle, lavender and peppermint.
LADIES NIGHT OUT: naturally made with shea butter, coconut oil; rose hip seed oil; kokum butter; vitamin E (tocopherol); essential oils of orange, lavender, litsea cubea, and anise
How to Use Backyard Bees Body Butter
Our body butters are made from powerful plant oils. A little goes a long way.
Apply a little body body (dime-sized dab) to your skin and massage across the surface in circular motions. The heat of your body will help it absorb.
Many customers enjoy applying body after a shower or before bedtime.
The most important thing to remember about body butter is to apply sparingly!
Other Ways of Naturally Moisturizing Your Skin
Sometimes you need a gentle exfoliator to remove some outer, dry skin before applying a body butter. Our favorite is Southern Sexy, or, for super sensitive skin, we recommend our Oatmeal Herb Honey Mask.
We love our Sisal Soap Saver Bags that come prefilled with assorted soap shreds…it’s like a plastic free body wash. Backyard Bees soaps are rich in naturally produced glycerin which helps to seal in moisture.
