There are lotions… There are creams… And then, there is body butter! If you have dry, cracked, or damaged skin, you might need to give it some extra loving! Body butter is an intense moisturizer that absorbs into the skin leaving it feeling silky, smooth, and soft.
However, most store-bought body butter is filled with all sorts of weird ingredients that you've never heard of and probably can't even pronounce. By making your own body butter you can be sure of exactly what ingredients are going into it, and therefore, what you're putting on your body.
