No matter the season, our skin always needs additional love and care. It is not a question of should I moisturize my skin, it is an important choice of what can I do to properly do this.
If you are not sure what is the difference between a body butter and body lotion, we prepared this blog post that will clarify things for you, and help you make a choice that is just right for your skin type.
What is Body Butter?
Body butter is a deep, rich, hydrating cure for rough skin. It is thicker than body lotion and tends to stay on top of your skin longer. It constantly works on reducing the loss of moisture in the skin.
The main ingredients in a good body butter are fatty acids. They are the ones that help hydrate and smooth out the skin. They also seal the moisture in the skin by forming a protective layer around it and keep it hydrated for up to 24 hours.
Our team of scientists created the perfect mixture in the Dermalactives Body Butter, available in two variations: White Tea, and Wild Flower. The natural ingredients combined with cutting edge science will help your skin with its radiance, nourishment, and glow.
What is Body Lotion?
Body lotion is lighter than butter and it’s not as greasy; the skin absorbs it very quickly. It’s actually an emulsion blend of water and oils, this makes it great for those with skin that is not that dry.
If you need a light, daily moisturizing, lotion is the right pick for you. Its light texture is also perfect for larger area applications because it tends to spread more easily and absorb faster.
The Energizing Body Lotion is our creation for those of you who choose this lightweight way of body nourishment.
What Is The Difference Between Body Butter and Body Lotion
The choice depends on whether your skin is aching for nourishing creaminess or if it doesn’t require anything more than a quick once-over with some light moisture?
Both Body Butters and Lotions are easily absorbed into all skin types and are extremely hydrating, but as we mentioned before, the consistency of lotions and Body Butters is a little different. Lotions feel lighter and have more water content, containing less concentrated oils, whereas Body Butters are infused with rich oils and feel more indulgent.
So at the end of the day, it is all up to you.
If you are still unsure about your choice, we created a quick chart that can help you decide.
