This is for the serious body butter lover! It is packed with skin loving oils for superior moisture that locks in all day. Use a pea sized amount on each area. Body heat activates it, so when you want it to soak in, stop rubbing. It will be greasy at first, then quickly absorb. Here are the other ingredients I used and why:
Cocoa Butter: locking in moisture leading to better hydration and increases skin cell regeneration. High vitamin E content softens and smoothes the skin and is an antioxidant.
Babassu: much more light-weight compared with coconut oil. While coconut oil seems to linger, babassu oil is barely noticeable (if at all) about an hour after you apply it to skin. It doesn’t feel oily like coconut oil and won’t clog your pores like coconut oil.
Sunflower Oil: A light oil with softening and nourishing qualities that is rich in vitamin E, omega 3 & 6. Not greasy and quickly absorbed.
Mango Butter: Increases moisture retention and improves the flexibility and elasticity of the skin. It has strong antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-viral, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which soften the skin, fight off free radicals, heal and nourish the skin combating irritations, inflammations and infections. Less greasy feel than shea butter.
Avocado butter: Moisturizing and softening, forms a thin layer on the surface to keep moisture locked in and attract water from the surrounding area helping to keep the skin hydrated. Rich in vitamins and minerals that are antioxidants helping to soften and smooth the skin.
Shea Butter: Excellent moisturizing agent that melts on contact with the skin, protects against water loss, boosts the protective layer & barrier repair function of the skin. Contains vast amounts of vitamin E which is an antioxidant helping to soften the skin. Regenerating properties help to alleviate stretchmarks, fine lines, wrinkles, eczema, psoriasis, rashes, chapped, cracked & broken skin.
Tangerine: An oil that replenishes the skin, encourages good skin tone and a glowing complexion with a sweet and refreshing deodorizing effect. Reputed to heal scar tissue, stretch marks as well as soften and smooth wrinkles and fine lines
Annatto Seeds: It has antioxidant properties which neutralize the free radicals responsible for the first signs of ageing, antiseptic, antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
Vit E: can improve fine lines and wrinkles by providing an antioxidant boost that protects from sun damage and encourages the healthy growth of new skin cells
