Skin feeling dry, itchy and irritated this time of year? This whipped body butter is for you! Body butters are thicker and more protective than lotion and fantastic for softener winter skin. The butters and oils are whipped up into a fluffy consistency so application is easier.

When using and applying body butters, a little goes a long way. Body butters spread easily and only need 1 application daily. They work best applied after a hot shower or bath when your pores are open and receptive to deep moisturizing.
