Our Body Food is just how it sounds. Food for your body; which includes your skin and your hair. As I value the ability of things to be multi-purpose, I set out to create an entire-body moisturizer using the base of our baby butter formula. I wanted it to be thick enough to really provide deep moisturizing, but also a formula that can be used head-to-toe.
Our Organic Ingredients:
+ Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is used for nearly anything. It has natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. It hydrates and conditions skin, and helps skin retain moisture.
+ Raw Shea + Raw Mango Butters are used for soothing irritated skin and have anti-aging and anti-inflammatory properties.
+ Jojoba Oil is the best for your hair and skin care needs. As we age, our sebaceous glands produce less sebum (healthy oil that moisturizes your skin and hair). Jojoba Oil has the same properties and consistency of sebum, therefore, is an amazing alternative to help restore moisture naturally. It also promotes skin health and improves acne as it is rich in iodine and other antibacterial properties. Finally, it contains Vitamin E, which combats aging, sun damage, and reduces scar appearance. It’s safe to say that Jojoba Oil should have it’s very own blog post one day!
+ As if the Jojoba wasn’t enough, our exclusive formula also contains Avocado Oil, which naturally tightens skin and helps with aging. It’s also used for treating common skin ailments, like eczema and psoriasis.
These organic and simple ingredients combine together to create a luxurious moisturizer for your entire body.
Recommended Uses for Glowing Skin and Hair:
As a natural shave butter: Apply a small amount to wet skin prior to shaving for decreased razor burn and instantly supple skin.
As an all-day moisturizer: Apply as needed, best straight out of the shower. Massage into skin until fully absorbed.
As a hair mask: Apply to ends before shampooing. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes prior to rinsing.
Our body food is so multi-purpose, you can use it for almost anything. Although the above are the most common uses, you can also use as a diaper rash cream, tattoo moisturizer, cuticle butter, or massage lotion (add in some Ylang Ylang essential oil for a sensual massage with your partner). Don’t limit yourself! How have you used our Body Food to treat yourself?
Our Body Food is the perfect follow up to any of our seasonal sugar scrubs or coffee scrub. Exfoliating prior to moisturizing is the best way to keep your skin soft and moisturized all day long.
Adding in your favorite essential oils add even more benefits to our Body Food. See the product page for recommended oils and their usage.
