Changing weather, both hot and cold, significantly affects our skin in adverse ways, leaving it dry, itchy and uncomfortable. Different types of body butters like murumuru butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil and cupuacu butter have been found to be extremely effective in keeping the skin hydrated.
Body butters are made of all-natural ingredients that are good for the skin. These butters are loaded with vitamins like Vitamin A and E and other important minerals that are highly beneficial for the skin. Almost all body butters contain essential omega 3 fats that moisturize the skin and calm inflammation caused by the hot sun or cold winter weather, as well as by free radicals in the dry air. You can apply it directly after a shower or at night, before sleeping. Body butters act as a protective barrier and help seal in the body’s natural moisture.
Amongst all the different types of body butters, cocoa butter, extracted from cocoa seeds, is the most popular. Women widely use cocoa butter to prevent stretch marks on their growing bellies during pregnancy. Highly moisturising, murumuru butter is also a prominent choice to keep the skin nourished and hydrated. The butter forms a film on the skin, which gives it a highly natural glossy shine. Cupuacu butter and coconut oil are also popularly used to protect and moisturize skin and hair.
Body butters are a much better choice than body lotions. Many clinical studies have linked the use of body lotions containing parabens with breast and ovarian cancer in women. Moreover, the effects of these butters last longer than most body lotions.
