Heavy vs Light Whipped Shea Body Butter

We talk a lot about the different scents we have. We even did a whole series on it!

But did you know that there is also variety in the texture of our products?

That’s right, some of our butters are thicker than others!

Now, let’s be clear – our butters are NEVER greasy. They’re all whipped for hours to achieve a light fluffy texture.

But as a rule of thumb, our thickest butters have raw shea as the only butter in the base.

Our raw shea whips are Unscented Whipped Shea ButterLemongrassLavender and Peppermint.

These will leave a warm coating on your skin before absorbing. They’re particularly good for rough areas — like heels, knees and elbows — but soft and spreadable enough for full body also.

A little less thick are our butters with mostly refined white shea in the base. Refined white shea butter isn’t as heavy as raw shea, but still heavier on the skin than mango and cocoa butter.

These are Vanilla Whipped Shea, Coconut Whipped Shea, Orange CreamsicleOrange Grapefruit and Grapefruit Whipped Shea.

And that’s it for our heavier butters. Everything else we sell is really light and high in absorbency. 

In terms of our very lightest butters, it’s our whips that contain all three butters in the base (mango, cocoa and shea butter.) These are Baby Powder Blended Butter and Mango Cocoa Shea.

I checked the reviews of these products, and their high absorbency is often mentioned;

“This butter is absolutely amazing – the combination of butters makes it vanish nearly instantly, smell great, moisturize and soften.” – Carolyn on Mango Cocoa Shea

“I love this butter. The texture is such a perfect balance of light and rich that absorbs incredibly easily. The scent reminds me of a dark chocolate covered marshmallow, but without all the sugar. I first tried this as a sample and loved it so much I went for a full size.” – C. Safely on Mango Cocoa Shea

And there you have it! From thick to super-duper light we’ve got you covered! Shop now!
