Benefits of Body Butter - Tahami By Nature

Posted by Karen Smith on

Body butter is a skin moisturizer typically containing botanical butters and oils.   These botanicals can be cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, rice bran oil, kokum butter, argan oil, or coconut oil - to name a few. Body butter is whipped to increase the spreadability of the butter. It is also thicker than lotion and creams and doesn’t contain any water. It is particularly effective at rejuvenating dry skin for spot application (i.e. knees, elbows, and heels) or for use all over the entire body. It is used immediately after a show or bath – to lock in the moisture of your damp skin. 

Body butters create a strong protective barrier that seals and locks in moisture into the skin.  This ability is magnified when applying body butter after bathing. The fatty acids contained in the plant-based butters support deeper hydration to support the skin by added a crucial protective layer for our skin.


The benefits of protecting the skin are greater hydration. Body butters emollient properties to soften the skin and increase hydration. The protective barrier created by body butter is extended due to the lack of water in body butter. Body butter smooths the skin, prevents the skin from drying out, and leads to more radiant skin.  Isn’t that what we all want?
