If you're looking for an ultra-hydrating, multipurpose skin treat, look no further than body butters. These rich, velvety moisturizers offer a concentrated dose of nourishing butters, oils and botanical extracts to deliver deep hydration and so much more.
At Birdsong, our luxurious body butters are formulated to pamper and protect your skin from head to toe. Here are some of the key benefits you can expect:

Deep Moisturizing
With a dense, creamy texture, body butters create an emollient barrier that seals in moisture for long-lasting hydration. They're perfect for thirsty skin that drinks up lighter lotions.

Protect Skin
Many body butters contain butters and oils with natural protective properties to guard against environmental aggressors like cold temperatures, wind and sun exposure.        

Restores Dehydrated Skin
The intense moisture provided by butters can help reinvigorate parched, flaky skin and smooth away roughness and cracking caused by dehydration.

Soothes Irritation
Our body butter base that has shea and mango butter and shea butter are known for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits which can calm angry rashes, eczema and other skin irritations.

Heals Burns
The skin-replenishing fats in butters create a protective barrier that locks in moisture and allows the skin to heal from minor burns and abrasions.

Nourishes Dry Skin
Butters provide essential fatty acids that mimic skin's natural lipids, fortifying and renewing the protective barrier to prevent moisture loss.

Reduces Skin Inflammation
Many butters contain anti-inflammatory compounds that can help reduce swelling, redness and general skin sensitivity when used regularly.
With their multitasking abilities to hydrate, protect and soothe, butters are true multi-purpose skin saviors. Make them part of your regular self-care regimen.


Q1.Is body butter suitable for all skin types?
Body butters are wonderfully versatile and can be suitable for all skin types when formulated correctly. For dry to very dry skin, butters provide intensive, long-lasting hydration. Those with oily or acne-prone skin may prefer a lighter butter blended with non-comedogenic oils. And for sensitive types, we recommend butters with minimal added fragrance. The key is finding the right butter base and botanical blend for your specific skin needs.

Q2.How is body butter different from lotion?
The main difference lies in the texture and concentration of moisturizing ingredients. Body butters have a thicker, richer consistency created by blending butters like shea or cocoa with oils and waxes. This dense base means they deliver deeper, longer-lasting hydration compared to thinner lotions. Butters also tend to be more emollient without heavy waxes found in some lotions.

Q3.When should I apply body butter?
Body butters can be used at any time for an intensive moisture boost! However, the ideal application is right after bathing or showering when skin is still damp. This allows the butter's powerful hydrators to rapidly soak in and lock in that water while your pores are open and receptive. You can also reapply butters throughout the day on dry, rough patches.

Q4.Can I use body butter on my face?
While some facial butters exist, we generally don't recommend using body butter formulas on the face. Body butters tend to be much richer and occlusive compared to lightweight facial moisturisers. This can clog pores and cause issues for those with oily or acne-prone skin. It's best to stick with non-comedogenic facial oils, creams and serums specifically designed for the delicate facial skin.

Q5.Are there any potential side effects of using body butter?
When using high-quality, botanical body butters, side effects are very minimal. However, those with nut allergies should avoid butters derived from tree nuts like shea or cocoa. Another potential issue is sensitivity to added fragrances or essential oils. Always do a patch test first if you have reactive skin. Lastly, body butters create a heavier occlusive layer, so use sparingly in warm humid climates to prevent excessive sweating.
