If you haven’t heard by now, body butters are one of skin’s favorite indulgences. Many hear the term “body butter” and are confused by what it is and what the benefits are when using, but look no more! The CGS Team is sharing everything you need to know about body butters.
Body butters are a form of moisturizers that are thicker than lotion and tend to leave a film on the surface of the skin. As a matter of fact, there are different types of body butters. Specifically, there’s whipped butter, and non-whipped butter.
The whipped butter usually includes beeswax, which makes the formula harder to absorb but longer lasting, while the wax-less and bar-type are more easily absorbed into the skin. If you are a body butter fan like me, then you better check out these 5 awesome body butters.
