Body butter or body oil? Which should you choose?

We’ve been making whipped butter for 9 years, but just released our body oils late last year. Since then they’ve been a hit!

But between body oil and whipped butter, which should you choose?

Here’s our breakdown:


The body butters win here. Mango, shea and cocoa butter are unmatched in their ability to soften and moisturize rough, dry skin. One application of whipped butter can moisturize up to 24 hours – even in dry winter conditions. We’ve noticed that the body oils – though powerful – provide a shorter window of moisture (between 4 and 12 hours.)


Body oils win here. The scent lingers on the skin for far longer than whipped butter.


Oils win again! A simple pump gives you everything you need.

Skin feel/absorption

This one is a tie! The butters have a thicker finish that is very satisfying. But the body oils go on silky smooth and absorb right away.

Layering and combining with other products

Body oils win again. So many customers have combined the body oil with water-based lotion, or one of our whipped butters. We even have customers using it as a finishing hair product to give shine and hold.

Skin softening and inflammation reduction

This is definitely a tie! The body oil is packed with rosehip, which has antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. The oils might not moisturize as deeply as the whipped butter, but they heal and soften just as powerfully!

Here’s what customers are saying about the body oil;

“This oil smells wonderful, absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin soft and supple. I layer it over my unscented butter on days I feel extra dry. Great uplifting scent!” Melinda on Sandalwood & Bergamot Hair & Body Oil

“DELIGHTFUL Fragrance. I usually stick to my Lemon Cream – but it just got steady company because I LOVE this Baby Powder Oil. I tested it on my elbows and knees, or rather on one elbow and one knee so I could compare. And the scent does not clash in combination with the Lemon; it smells Heavenly. After a few days my Baby Oil spots were definitely softer and smoother than the other 2. Which already makes this a real find, but also because this scent feels ‘luxurious’ and makes me feel ‘soft and pampered’. After my hot bath and applying Lemon all over, I now put the Baby Oil on special places.” Marsha on Baby Powder Hair & Body Oil
