You will be grateful to me if you follow this guide; as it will help your skin to be creamy and ultra-moisturizing.
Why Is Body Butter?
Body butter is creamy product that is thicker than lotion and contains less water. This means it takes longer to penetrate the skin, but it’s very moisturizing and softens even those tougher, very dry spots like the knees, elbows, and feet. Body butter is definitely more emollient and has a heavier texture than lotion does, but after a few minutes it will penetrate the skin and lose any greasy feel.
