Ever wonder what butter is best for your DIY?
Since they don’t contain water, natural butters have a thick, nourishing consistency and can help lock in skin’s moisture—protecting the all-important acid mantle and moisture barrier. Essential fatty acids have the ability to protect against moisture loss and prevent signs of aging. Because all of our butters are naturally derived, skin sensitivities are extremely rare.

Mango butter is pressed from the seed (“pit”) within the mango fruit. It contains high levels of essential fatty acids, vitamins (particularly vitamin A, vitamin C and vitamin E), and antioxidants. Mango butter has an almost undetectable scent. It is also non-comedogenic, making it a good choice for congested and acne-prone skin. This is an excellent choice for skin that doesn't need a lot of extra moisture but that would benefit from the anti-aging properties the butter has.
Shea butter is extracted from the shea tree nuts and is found in many types of skincare—for good reason! It has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, which makes it a fantastic anti-aging ingredient, and a great treatment option for those with dry skin or eczema. Shea butter has proven time and time again to be one of the best natural emollients. Rich in fatty acids, the butter from the shea nut increases collagen production, strengthens, and improves skin elasticity. This is going to be a go-to butter for removing scars, cellulite, and diminishing the appearance of stretch marks, if you so desire.
Avocado contain healthy fats, as well as omega 3 fatty acids, which can help to improve the texture of your skin. Avocado butter provides your body with vitamin E, an antioxidant that can help fight skin damage and promote slower aging. Avocado butter is a rich source of zinc, vitamin B and copper, which are all key nutrients that aid in keeping the integrity of healthy skin.
