Body butter is often associated with cold weather and winter months, but in our eight years of business we’ve seen sales remain strong in the summer months! Here’s why;
HEALING BENEFITS YEAR ROUND. You can switch to a lighter moisturizer in the summer, but it likely won’t relieve your eczema, reduce stretch marks and brighten scars as our body butters do.
THEY’RE ABSORBENT ENOUGH FOR WARM WEATHER. One of our foundational tenets is “No greasy/heavy body butters!” Our body butters sink right into the skin leaving you with a soft glow, not oily or weighed down.
THE SCENT! Customers use our butters for aromatherapy, as a base scent for their perfume, or as a perfume substitute. It’s a self-care ritual they don’t give up just because it gets hot! We often see customers switch up scents in anticipation of summer. Sales of Grapefruit Whipped Shea Butter go through the roof in June!

BODY BUTTER + THE BEACH = A PERFECT MIX!
Body butter works beautifully with sea water!
Sea water is a natural exfoliant. The salt in it absorbs toxins in the skin, and sloughs off dead skin. Sea water is also packed with minerals like magnesium, calcium and potassium that fight bacteria and infection, and speed up the skin’s natural healing process. It’s why you feel so refreshed after taking an ocean dip.
Whipped butter is the perfect thing to put on your skin after a sea soak! It locks the moisture into your newly exfoliated skin, preserving a deeper softness. Plus, it also boosts the skin’s natural healing.
I am a certified beach bum. Here is a picture of me surfing badly (whatever, it’s fun.) In the summer time I’m at the beach once or twice a week.
My skin always feels its best in the summer time because of the continual exposure to sea water followed by my body butter. While the dead skin on my feet (gross, I know… sorry!) accumulates in the winter time, in the summer time my feet are baby smooth because of the power of sea water + whipped butter combined!
You don’t have to be a huge ocean person to get these benefits. If you don’t like to swim, try sitting in the shallow waves for a few minutes, then follow up with a shower and a whipped butter rub down. I promise your skin will feel incredible!
(Remember that melanin needs sunscreen too! Avoid sun damage by wearing sunscreen if you’re at the beach.)
THE CONCLUSION? Body butter definitely has a place in summer time! You don’t need to apply as much, but it will definitely give you a summer glow. ????
