Multi Purpose Body Butter
There are thousands of lotions and body butters in the market, which are highly publicized in winters. But most Indian skin types are extremely dry in winters, and therefore, most lotions don’t work on them. Lotions are mainly for the month of October-November and March-Early April.
In peak winters, you need something more for the skin, and that’s when body butters come to the rescue.
Body butters are an optimal combination of oils and butters, which not only provide the required moisturization, but also the adequate nutrition to the skin.
Now for the ingredients, and how they help:
Organic Shea Butter: Shea butter is used as both a skin and hair ingredient in the African continent. It is just like us Indians have ghee; they have shea butter. It is used in cooking as well.
Shea butter is known to be an elixir in Africa. It helps protect the hair and the skin from the extreme dry and hot weathers in the Sub-Saharan region. It helps maintain the elasticity of the skin. It helps build collagen in the body, which helps maintain the regeneration of skin cells, hence keeping your skin healthy. It also helps repair damaged skin, and keeps irritated skin at bay.
Organic Cocoa Butter: Another gem from the African continent. Cocoa butter comes from the cocoa plant, the same plant that gives us the ingredients for your favourite chocolate bar.
It is high in antioxidants, and therefore helps keep the skin soft, supple and youthful. It is also very helpful in reducing stretch marks and other skin marks, because its high in essential fatty acids.
Vitamin-E Oil: Our vitamin-e oil is sourced from natural sources such as wheatgerm oil and other high vitamin-e content oils. We recommend using the vitamin-e oil instead of the vitamin-e tablets, which are synthetically made.
Vitamin-E Oil has dual work, from the benefits for the skin, it reduces stretch marks, acne marks, and all other skin marks. It reduces hyper pigmentation and gives you an even toned skin. It also works as a natural preservative for this recipe, extending its life to almost 3-4 months in winters.
Organic Virgin Coconut Oil: This oil needs no introduction. Every household has this oil, but we are all using it the wrong way. We use commercial coconut oil, which can lead to clogging of skin pores, and additional problems. At Tattvalogy, we source the purest, most virgin coconut oil for our customers. Our coconut oil’s very thin in consistency and gets absorbed in the skin easily. You need to try it to actually believe it.
Sweet Almond Oil: Used in almost every household, Sweet Almond oil helps reduce pigmentation, early signs of ageing and helps maintain even toned skin. All this is possible due to the high contents of vitamin-E along with B6.
Beeswax Pallets: Beeswax is an essential part of this recipe. It not only locks in moisture, but also helps keep the consistency of the final product very stable, so that it doesn’t become to liquid-y because of the presence of oils.
