Body Butter vs. Lotion: Which is best?

Our skin is a very big deal. No, seriously. It’s the largest organ in the body and one of the most complicated. It's worth knowing how to care for it properly.

Body lotion and body butter are great ways to keep your skin nourished, moisturized and glowing. But what is the difference?

What is Body Lotion?

Lotions have a higher water content and feel lightweight. Since they are not as thick as body butters they absorb much quicker into the skin and make for quick application.

What is Body Butter?

Simora Home body butters deliver intense moisture to hydrate and nourish your skin. They are made with natural butters and oils such as shea, mango, cocoa, and kokum butters and coconut and almond oil. Body butters are thicker than lotions to provide longer lasting moisture and a few other great benefits.

  • Forms a protective layer around the skin

  • Reduces Wrinkles

  • Helps soothe skin rashes, sunburn and eczema

  • Contains beneficial antioxidants like vitamin C, E & A

  • Spend less and get high quality moisturizer that lasts all day.

If you want a true spa experience, body butter is the way to go. After soaking in bath or relaxing shower massage the body butter into your skin and soak in the amazing benefits. For more ways to use body butter, check out this article.

Which One is Best for Me?

Skin types play an integral part in finding the best body butter or lotion for you. People with oily skin like to opt for a lightweight lotion. For those with dry skin, intense hydration body butter is best.

To get the most of your moisturizers:

  • It's best to use lotion on your face. The thickness of body butter could clog pores if you're prone to breakouts.

  • Apply body butter after bathing for maximum softness.

  • After a long day in the sun, restore moisture your skin lost with body butter.

The use of body butter or lotion truly depends on your skin. The biggest difference is thickness. Whether using body butter or lotion, the most important thing to remember is to use it.
