Beautify, Not Toxify With Organic Body Butters
Executive Summary about Body Makeup by Sue Harper
Butter is not just food you stuff into your mouth; now it’s food you can feed the skin as well, thanks to highly hydrating organic body butters.
Organic butters are just that – organic. They’re at the forefront in the cosmetics industry’s campaign to go healthy and eco-friendly through the use of natural ingredients. The concept behind this type of butters is not new, though. For years, and even dating as far back as the mid-fourteenth century, the women of West Africa have been gathering and processing shea, one of the more popular components of body butter. They used the nut as lamp oil and ointment. They also used it for food, with shea being a vital source of nutrition for the average Burkinabe family. On top of it all, shea also saw use as a soap and — you guessed it — moisturizer.
In the old days, making organic butter was very labor-intensive. The nuts had to be boiled, sun-dried, and shelled by hand. After that, they are crushed, roasted, pounded, and kneaded. Today, many women make organic butters in the confines of their homes, using liquid oils and ingredients they can easily pluck out of the pantry or make quick trips to the grocery for. Cosmetic companies spend and earn millions selling organic butters. Dermatologists, mothers, and Oprah recommend organic body butters. Teenagers, housewives, and career women incorporate organic body butters into their shopping lists and the household budget. The world, it seems, has gone butter-crazy.
Just what is it about organic body butters that appeal to so many, from the rural communities in fourteenth-century Africa to the posh homes of modern America? Experts say it’s the natural ingredients. Organic butters lets you moisturize your skin without the toxins that are characteristic of factory-produced lotions. What’s good for your body is good for your skin. Organic butters take this mantra further by hydrating your skin with nutrients that normally nourish the body. Then, too, organic butters do much more than moisturize. They relax and heal, and may be utilized for other purposes, such as treating rashes, smoothing scars and wrinkles, and soothing muscle pains. With organic body butters, you beautify, not toxify. Who wouldn’t want that?
Organic Body Butters Let You Hydrate the Natural Way
Organic butters’ main component is — you guessed it — butter. Think shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, and aloe butter. These butters are mixed with liquid oils, such as avocado oil, almond oil, and olive oil, and are processed to “feed” the skin sans the grease.
Organic butters are like lotion – only better. When you buy lotions, you get 70 to 90% water and only a little of the natural extracts; with organic body butters, you get the butters and oils in concentrated form. What makes organic body butters so hydrating? A lot of people have taken to making their own organic body butters. Organic butters are sold a’jar a’plenty in stores.
