Not many people know the difference between body butter, body lotion, and body cream. So it is common if anyone asks the question that why body butter? What does it do? And how different it is from the body lotions and creams available in the market.

Body Butter vs. Body Cream vs. Body Lotion

Body butter is what it says. Body butter is thick, fluffy, and creamy – consistent like the tasty butter we eat. Body butter products are manufactured combining carrier oils and essential butters and don’t typically contain water. The buttery element of the body butter products is nothing but the essential fats and minerals extracted from natural ingredients like palm, shea, cocoa, mango, etc.

Cream products are thinner than a body butter. Some creams are absorbed well on the skin and some are whipped off after a few time. Body creams can also contain butter as a basic ingredient and watery ingredients like aloe vera, hydrosol, or some herbal infusion. But everybody cream doesn’t contain butter necessarily.

Body lotions are similar to creams but are lighter as it contains more water. Body lotions are formulated to be lightweight on the skin. It may not deeply moisturize or stay longer on your skin.
