Quite simply enough, body butter is a kind of moisturizing cream that’s meant to spread easily so that you can use it all over your body. People use the cream to help keep their skin moisturized, hydrated and supple, through dry weather. If you’re wondering how this is any different from any of the hundreds of lotions and creams and handmade body scrub that already appear on the shelves, body butter is designed to get the job done with fewer synthetic ingredients and more natural ones. For instance, you will find it impossible to find a regular standard drugstore moisturizing product that doesn’t use paraben chemicals – substances that are suspected to be responsible for cancer. No handmade body butter brand on the other hand, uses this at all.
