Our brand new Body Butters are now online.
We're extra excited about these as, not only are they from a fantastic new supplier, they contain some amazing, locally sourced, natural ingredients.
The difference between Body Butters, Lotions and Creams.
It's all in the water!
It's all in the water!
Simply put - Lotions and creams contain high levels of water (up to 70%), creating a thinner, lighter consistency. Body Butters are made primarily from vegetable oils and butters (such as Palm Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter - and in our case Scottish Ola Oil), with little to no water - creating a harder, thicker consistency similar to butter or balm.
Why are these Body Butters so great?
"After using the Mint & Lavender Body Butter for a couple of weeks my skin has never felt so smooth and supple - dry patches have completely disappeared. The smell is divine!"
- Jane (one of our Product Testers in Newcastle)
"I'm so impressed with this Body Butter. I normally use a much more expensive natural skincare brand and have to say, I won't be buying it again."
- Wendy (one of our Product Testers in Scarborough who has tested the Geranium Body Butter)
Aloe Vera Leaf Juice
Shea Butter is another popular ingredient used in the fight against dry skin and minor skin conditions. It promotes the skin's natural collagen production, while creating a protective barrier to nourish the skin throughout the day. Reports of improvements in stretch marks, wrinkles and skin inflammation are not surprising given the healing and soothing properties of Shea Butter.
Natural Scottish Ola Oil
Ola Oil is made from Rapeseed crops grown by the Sorrie family in Aberdeenshire. Rapeseed Oil (or Canola Oil) is FANTASTIC for skin! Here's why:
It is high in Omega-3, 6 & 9 Fatty Acids
Ola Oil is around ten times higher in Omega-3 than Olive Oil and high in Omega-6 which promotes healthy skin, nails and hair.
It contains masses of Vitamins & Anti-Oxidants
Including Vitamin A, B3, C and E (all of which are essential for healthy skin).
It protects the skin from Free Radicals
Minimising wrinkles, UV and pollution damage.
Ola Oil is created at room temperature by cold-pressing seeds from these crops. No heat or chemical processes are involved at all, meaning the Ola Oil in our Body Butters are pure and maintain their beneficial properties.
