This luxurious body cream combines coconut butter, shea butter and two plant oils, grape seed and sesame, to produce a nourishing cream which absorbs easily while moisturising at a deep level. Grape seed oil possesses a regenerative and reconstructive antioxidant called resveratrol which helps to slow down the ageing process.
The body butter can be used on areas of dry or dehydrated skin or can be used as an all over body treat. It is made from high quality ingredients and contains no harsh chemicals or toxic substances and so is highly tolerable for even the most sensitive individuals.
The butters used in this Body Butter are organic coconut butter and organic shea butter. These butters ensure a high level of hydration making the skin feel very soft and smooth. These butters are moisturising, protecting and healing for the skin, especially for dry and damaged skin. Shea butter contains 5 to 10% phytosterols which stimulate cell growth. Both coconut and shea butter contain high percentages of saturated fat (92% and 50% accordingly) and as such they provide high levels of hydration for the skin.
To complement the butters in this product and to ensure optimal absorption of the body butter, organic grape seed oil and organic sesame oil have been added. Grape seed oil has become a preferred ingredient in the toiletries and cosmetic industry. It is a light, thin, easily absorbed oil and contains more linoleic acid (omega 6) than many other oils, a staggering 80%. Sesame oil is also a light, easily absorbed oil and is a rich source of antioxidants. It has a good balance of linoleic and oleic acids (35% of each).
It is perfumed with a delicate aroma of lemongrass complemented by the stronger base notes of Vetivert which counteracts the uplifting citrus notes. Lemongrass is a good general tonic and can have a beneficial effect on cellulite. Whereas Vetivert has properties as a circulatory stimulant and can ease lymphatic congestion.
Epigenetics Body Butter is a highly effective combination of butters and oils to provide maximum hydration for the skin.
