The Cardamom + Vanilla Body Butter is now available for a limited time. ✨ . . . Moisturize, heal, nourish and protect your skin with this all natural highly nutritive 2oz jar of Cardamom + Vanilla Body Butter. Can be used on lips and body. Full of antioxidants, essential fatty acids, and vitamins. It smells like a delicious warm cup of Chai Tea. Avoid getting water in the jar because of it’s all natural state. . . . Coconut Oil . Always use a virgin cold-pressed oil, organic is best, to make sure that all the nutrients and beneficial properties are intact. Coconut oil’s antioxidant properties protect the skin from free radical damage and because it’s so full of essential fatty acids, it also helps to build and strengthen skin-cell structures. This keeps the skin’s connective tissues strong and supple, which helps to prevent sagging and wrinkles. My skin loves it and I love that it’s easily absorbed. . . . Sweet Almond Oil is an emollient – in that it smooths and softens skin more than hydrates it. It’s full of vitamin E, which is a powerful antioxidant and great skin protector and healer. I also love that it’s easily absorbed into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. . . . Cocoa Butter comes from the cocoa bean. It has a distinct nutty, chocolate scent – so yes, you will smell… delicious! Cocoa butter is a rich emollient, it leaves your skin buttery soft. It contains fatty acids which help to retain moisture and build elasticity and also has properties which can help ease dermatitis or rashes. Just like your oils, you want to choose a raw, cold-pressed butter – free of chemicals that are used in bleaching and refining. . . . Raw, unrefined shea butter contains cinnamates and acetates that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It also has caffeic acid, a UV protectant. Plus, it’s high in vitamins A, E, and F, and unsaponifiable fats that absorb easily into your skin, helps seal in moisture without clogging pores.
