Body Cream, Body Lotion & Body Butter – What Makes Them Different From One Another?

It can be confusing, the multitude of beauty products, right? We totally get you. Although everybody knows that moisturizing is an important step in the skincare ritual, there are three distinct products out for you- body cream, body lotion, and body butter. So how do you choose which one?

Well the response depends primarily on your type of skin and weather conditions. Today, we’re here to clear up your dilemma, to mention all the distinctions between cream, lotion, and body butter. Let’s get going.

Body Creams

Body creams are commonly defined as thicker than body lotions, but not as thick as body butters, because water and oils are made up of them. The key distinction between body cream and body butter, however is the water to oil ratio, which is why creams are actually emollient, but not as hydrating and productive as body butter per se.

Everyone has his or her own special skin needs, as we said earlier. What’s yours now? If you have dry skin that needs a full moisture overhaul, then you could be the perfect match for body butter vs. cream. It takes at least 30mins for your skin to soak in all the goodness of the cream.

Body Lotion

Body lotions are mostly made of water, oil and of course, other moisturizing ingredients. It is much lighter than body cream and body butter for sure. It moisturizes skin perfectly. But if you have dry skin, it may not quench your skin’s thirst as much as a body butters or cream would do.

But if you’re not a butter or cream person that lotions should be your go to product. Our Sheasoft Honey and Saffron body lotion is a problem solver as it keeps skin hydrated for 24 hours. Typically lathered on arms, neck and legs. Unlike butters and creams the best part of lotions are they get easily absorbed into the skin.

Body Butter

The thickest of the three is body butter, which has a texture similar to the butter we eat. It has a mild to strong scent depending on fragrance and lasts longer than both lotion and cream. Butters are the essential fats and minerals that are extracted from natural ingredients (shea, cocoa, papaya, mango.) Each butter will differ in its unique texture, rigidity, and absorbency.

One uses Body butters to retain moisture, lubricate and nourish the skin. If you have like super dehydrated skin we recommend you to take a dip into a pot of body butter like one from our body butter range. Some absorb into the skin quickly while others may leave a slight oily barrier depending on skin type and formulation.
