What is Body Budda (Butter)
Body Butter is a skin moisturizer that typically contains Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, other Natural Oils, Fragrance and Essential Oils. It's thicker than lotions and is very effective at rejuvenating and hydrating dry skin. The best time to apply body butter is right after your daily shower, in order to lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated all day. Since Body Butter doesn’t contain water, it won’t dry your skin out. Its all natural ingredients give it a much longer shelf life as well. These delicious butters melt on contact, are absorbed quickly, and are extremely beneficial to your skin.
Shea butter is a natural moisturizer that hydrates and protects the skin. It provides protection from UV rays and acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Shea Butter also contains fatty acids and vitamins A & E that protect against free radical damage, moisturize the skin and hair, increase elasticity and can also help reduce wrinkles.
Coconut Oil is one of the few oils that have the ability to penetrate all skin types. Its fatty acid content helps improve elasticity in the skin and helps minimize the appearance of stretch marks, scars and other forms of hyper pigmentation. The fatty acid in coconut oil reduces inflammation and moisturizes to help heal most skin conditions. The antimicrobial properties of coconut oil balance out the fungal sources that can cause many skin conditions.
Jojoba oil is very similar to the natural oil produced by our skin and scalp (sebum). Using it topically, jojoba oil acts like sebum and moisturizes our skin when our body stops doing it naturally. It also removes excess oil; keeping oil levels balanced. Jojoba oil is an emollient and forms an oily layer on the top of the skin that traps water in the skin. Jojoba Oil also fights bacteria that can cause breakouts and stimulates collagen.
Vitamin E Oil
Vitamin E is a fat-soluble, essential nutrient with anti-inflammatory properties. Vitamin E helps support the immune system, cell function, and skin health. It's an antioxidant, making it effective at combating the effects of free radicals produced by the metabolism of food and toxins in the environment. It can help reduce the appearance of scars. Free radicals also make it harder for scars to heal; try applying vitamin E oil to diminish more permanent marks. It may help moisturize skin. While vitamin E's main role in creams and lotions is as an antioxidant, it could help soften skin as well.
Grape Seed Oil
Grape seed oil is a good source of vitamin E, even more so than olive oil. Vitamin E is a vitamin that works as a fat-soluble antioxidant, which helps protect your cells from damaging free radicals that have been associated with cancer, heart disease, and other chronic illnesses.
Sweet Almond Oil
Almond oil has anti-oxidative properties and is known for protecting the skin from UV rays along with keeping the skin soft and supple. It can also fight acne because it contains vitamin A. It is a light oil that easily absorbs into the skin, making it suitable for those with sensitive skin. Almond oil is used as a natural remedy for eczema and psoriasis because of its anti-inflammatory nature.
Avocado oil is rich in fatty acids and is excellent for moisturizing the skin. In addition to vitamin E, avocado oil contains potassium, lecithin, and many other nutrients that can nourish and moisturize the skin.
