What's the Difference Between Body Butter and Lotion?

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between Body Butter and Lotion, and when you should be using each? 

Body Butter is is heavier than lotion and has an oily base. It is made using only natural butters and oils. It provides intensive moisturization for extremely dry skin. Body Butter does not absorb quickly, creating a protective barrier around the skin locking/sealing in moisture. This makes it ideal for nighttime use, after a hot bath or shower!

Lotion is much more lightweight and absorbs more quickly. Lotion is also made up of natural butters and oils, but it also has water in it. This requires emulsifying waxes (used to help the oils and waters blend well) and a preservative to prevent mold. 

Since lotion is absorbed quickly, it puts moisture directly into the skin. This makes it ideal for daytime use!

Did You Know?

When it comes to your lips, dryness can be more difficult to overcome than with
your hands and body. This is because your lips have no pores. They have no way
of directly absorbing materials, and no way of producing oil. Moreover, the use of
heavy waxes in some lip products can actually pull out any existing moisture
already in the lips, as well as create small tears on the surface of the lips, making
the lips even more dry, chapped, and sometimes causing irritation. The best
hydration and healing comes from using products with the right carrier oils. This
can ensure that the nourishing vitamins and triglycerides are carried down into
the top layers of skin on the lips. Coconut oil and Jojoba oil are two of the best
carrier oils for the lips, and Jessica Lynne lip products contain both!
