What is Body Butter?

What is Body Butter?

There are currently tons of body moisturizing products on the market to nourish your skin, so it's understandable that some people may not know the difference between them and when to use them. 


Body milks, creams, and lotions are a source of quick moisture that can be applied easily to your skin, but they can sometimes contain unwanted chemicals like fragrances which can trigger an allergic reaction. 

What is Body Butter?

Body butters often contain natural ingredients, such as shea butter, coconut oil, and jojoba oil. They're great for providing a deep, long-lasting level of moisture to your skin. That moisture builds a protective barrier between your skin and damaging external factors like sunlight. 


Because body butters tend to use natural ingredients, there are fewer risks of allergic reactions or skin irritation. If you have sensitive skin or a history of bad reactions to other moisturizers like lotion, body butter might be a good product for you!


Body butter is also often packed with nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids to soften and reduce skin irritation, as well as antioxidants and vitamins to slow down the aging process of your skin.

I think of body butter as a deep moisturizer that provides both immediate and long-lasting benefits. The thick and creamy nature provides an immediate softening to the skin that's hydrating and nourishing. 


This effect can last for several hours after application. Many of the ingredients in body butters are also anti-inflammatory, which can calm skin irritation for hours after the butter has been used.

Top 10 Best Body Butters

There are many body butter products with different formulas to moisturize and nourish your skin, and here are 10 great ones. We made our choices based on the points listed in the buying guide below, as well as reviewer comments when available.

How to Choose a Body Butter - Buying Guide

To help you better understand the benefits of body butter and which type of body butter would be good for your skin type, we combined a list of necessary points you need to know about this product. Hopefully, after reading this buying guide, you can comfortably choose a product for yourself.

Know Which Body Butters Work With Your Skin Type

When you choose a body butter, you should consider your skin type and look carefully at the ingredients. Even though body butters can be used for all skin types, certain products will provide more effective results for certain skin types than others. 

Protective Body Butters are Best for Normal Skin

Protective Body Butters are Best for Normal Skin

People with normal or healthy skin often have small pores and balanced oil and hydration levels in their skin. For normal skin, you can choose plant-based or floral-based body butter that works to protect more than to heal. Cocoa or chocolate body butter is a good option because it protects your skin from free radicals that damage your skin cells. 

Richer Body Butters Work Well for Dry Skin

Richer Body Butters Work Well for Dry Skin

If you're suffering from dry skin, you should choose a heavier butter that is mostly comprised of natural oils. One of the ideal ingredients that you should consider is shea butter. Shea butter contains an abundance of oleic and stearic acid for softening, hydrating, and preventing age in the skin.


Mango butter is also great; rich in vitamins A and E, it protects your skin from UV rays and provides deep moisture to dry or rough spots. You can also look for almond body butter, assuming you're not allergic. Almond butter can penetrate quickly into skin layers and keep your skin moist for a long period of time.

Use these richer and thicker body butters in colder weather, when the skin tends to be drier. They can help treat and even prevent the winter itch that many people get as the skin ages. These richer body butters provide hydration and help protect the skin barrier. Shea butter can even help keep moisture to lessen the appearance of stretch marks while pregnant.

Oily Skin Calls for Balanced Ingredients and Textures

Oily Skin Calls for Balanced Ingredients and Textures

If you have an oily skin texture, you should look for a body butter that's lighter in texture. Light body butters combine a number of oils and plant-based extracts to get all of that good moisture without clogging your pores. Coconut oil, cocoa oil, and honey will likely absorb into your skin more easily than pure shea butter. These are also often easier to apply.

If you are acne-prone, avoid coconut oil in your body butter. This can trigger acne outbreaks and pityrosporum folliculitis or "fungal acne."

Gentle and Non-Comedogenic Body Butters for Sensitive Skin

Gentle and Non-Comedogenic Body Butters for Sensitive Skin

For sensitive skin, go for a butter that can nourish your skin without causing irritation. Non-comedogenic body butters, which are formulated to not cause core clogging, often contain aloe or kokum and are great for nourishment. Shea butter, cocoa butter, as well as other oil, floral, and plant-based essences with their strong soothing effects can be other options for you to consider.

Dr. Lauren Levy
Board Certified Dermatologist

If you have sensitive skin or eczema, avoid butters with fragrance as they can trigger eczema and contact dermatitis. Check the ingredient list prior to use. "All-natural" does not necessarily mean that it won't trigger a contact dermatitis or an eczema flare.

Choose a Body Butter Based on Your Current Skin Condition

If you have a skin condition such as eczema or wrinkles, you should look into body butter that can address any of these concerns. Below, we've listed some ingredients with great benefits for different skin conditions. 

Kokum and Shea Butter Soothe Sunburn

Kokum and Shea Butter Soothe Sunburn

You're probably tired of hearing us mention shea butter by now, but it's really great for helping to soothe and heal sunburnt skin. Kokum butter is a lot like shea butter in this respect. The omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids in these two ingredients help protect and repair skin cell membranes. 

Oils Help Eczema and Psoriasis

Oils Help Eczema and Psoriasis

People with inflammatory skin conditions like eczema should look for products containing jojoba oil or aloe vera, as their hypoallergenic and healing properties can reduce itchiness, irritation, and flaking. Furthermore, they can be absorbed quickly into your skin and provide an immediate soothing effect. 

Dr. Lauren Levy
Board Certified Dermatologist
Dr. Lauren Levy

If you have eczema, your skin barrier is impaired since you are missing important parts of the system that retain water in the skin. This leads to transepidermal water loss, which results in dry skin and rashes. Thick creams and oils can help repair the barrier to prevent transepidermal water loss


Additionally, those with eczema and an impaired barrier can be prone to skin infections, especially with staph, so keeping the barrier hydrated and intact is important. A cream-based or oil-based body butter can help do this, especially if you're acne-prone.

Certain Ingredients Can Even Prevent Stretch Marks and Wrinkles

Certain Ingredients Can Even Prevent Stretch Marks and Wrinkles

Shea butter supplies skin with vitamin E, F, and other fatty acids, which can protect your skin from being damaged by sunlight, cold weather, or other contaminants like pollution. Shea butter is also rich in vitamin A, a nutrient that increases skin elasticity. Therefore, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles and gives your skin a youthful look.


Especially for those who have stretch marks, you should look for products that contain vitamin E. Vitamin E can speed up cell regeneration, so it can heal stretch marks and prevent more from appearing.

Stretch marks are hard to fully prevent because genetics plays a big role in their development. Additionally, how quickly one gains weight also influences the development of stretch marks. That being said, having hydrated skin can help reduce the appearance of stretch marks and increase skin elasticity. 


In my opinion, there is no magic cream for stretch marks, but keeping the skin hydrated can make them less itchy and less noticeable.

Look at the Body Butter's Consistency

Look at the Body Butter's Consistency

The body butter's consistency or texture will also play a part in your selection process as this directly affects the application period and how the formula dries on the skin. 


For example, unrefined shea butters that are thick with a grainy consistency and need to be melted by rubbing before or during application. Other body butters have a creamy consistency that can sometimes feel a bit greasy. 


There are also body butters with bases like cocoa that are hard and need extra effort to be scooped out of the container. They only begin to melt and become smooth when in contact with the skin or with the help of a warm water bath. We recommend giving the texture or consistency a quick look to ensure the formula suits your preferences.

Pick a Fragrance You Enjoy

Pick a Fragrance You Enjoy

Since many body butter products have attractive fragrances that can last for a long time, they can even be used as a subtle yet effective perfume substitute. Body butters often have sweet scents like vanilla and coconut or fruity scents such as mango and peach. You can also find body butter products with floral aromas such as rose or lavender. 


If you prefer an unscented product, there are body butters with only a light scent or no odor at all. We recommend double-checking with reviews if a certain product is truly scent-free, especially if you are sensitive to fragrances.

If you're looking for additional or alternate ways to hydrate your thirsty skin, we've got some suggestions for you.

Summary

With this list of products and this buying guide, you should be able to find a body butter that will moisturize, prevent aging, soothe, and nourish skin to glowing perfection. Remember to consider your skin type and condition when choosing a body butter!
