Unlocking the Beauty Benefits of Body Butter: The Ultimate Guide

When it comes to keeping your skin healthy, hydrated and glowing there’s only one product we use from head-to-toe: our Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter! Made with a blend of organic plant-based butters and oils including organic cocoa butter and shea it banishes dryness and deeply nourishes without any greasy residue. We also added  Canadian-sourced Chaga and propolis to soothe, heal and revitalize your skin.

Thanks to the organic cocoa butter it has a light chocolate scent that our customers love. It’s truly the perfect everyday body moisturizer—especially beneficial for dry skin areas like hands, feet, elbows, knees and eczema-prone skin. You’ll love it because it completely absorbs into your skin due to the richness of the fatty acids, while vitamins A and E, support skin cell health, leaving your skin supple and smooth. Since this is one of our best-selling products in the Hello Joyous Shop, we want to share 7 ways to use it to show you how incredibly versatile it really is!

7 Ways To Unlock the Beauty Benefits of Body Butter

Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter Hello Joyous

1. Apply on your body from head-to-toe

The simplest way to use our BB is as a luxurious moisturizer. Slather it from head-to-toe this will make your skin G-L-O-W. After applying it, the skin feels so soft and supple. The blend of rich natural oils includes mango, shea, and cocoa butters plus amazing Canadian superfoods like chaga and propolis to make this an incredible way to truly nourish your skin.

Body Butter is what the Hello Joyous team uses to moisturize on a daily basis. As a company, we are not fans of synthetic fragrance and we know our customers aren’t either. You’ll love that the smell comes from the actual raw ingredients like cocoa butter, which is deeply nourishing for the skin.

The best part is that it absorbs quickly so it won't get all over your clothes, like how pure coconut oil does. If you do happen to get a little bit on your shirt by accident, don't worry as it washes out very easily.

We suggest applying more Body Butter on extra dry areas like the soles of the feet and hands. You can even carry our smaller 50g jar in your bag, so you can have soft, smooth, glowing skin on the go! We don’t necessarily suggest using it on the face because it can be too rich. But don’t worry, our Hella Hydrating Serum provides similar hydrating, moisturizing, and nourishing benefits without any risk of clogging the pores!

2. Soothe & protect eczema prone skin

You might be searching for products that are safe for dry or eczema prone skin since many conventional ingredients in beauty products can aggravate inflammatory skin conditions - look no further! Over the years, some of the best testimonials for our Body Butter have been from our customers sharing how it helped their eczema or their children's eczema. This is not surprising because the shea butter and cocoa butter our BB contains are natural ways to combat eczema, thanks to all those healthy fatty acids that nourish the skin and aid in skin cell regeneration.

Shea is rich in vitamin A and E, both of which support skin cell health and promote the healing of dry, itchy, and inflamed skin. Cocoa butter acts as an emollient which means it deeply soothes and softens dry, flaky skin supporting the skin barrier function. It also has anti-inflammatory benefits that soothes irritated, dry and itchy skin. This combination is amazing for eczema!

3. Use it as a nourishing lip balm 

Just because it says “Body” on the label doesn’t mean you can’t use our BB elsewhere! One of our favourite ways to keep our lips feeling soft and smooth is to  apply a little bit of Body Butter! It’s great to use after putting on your lipstick or if you just need a little extra moisture to keep dry, cracked lips at bay. 

4. Apply it after shaving

Hello Joyous Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter Benefits

In summertime it’s likely we’re all shaving a little more than usual. Every time you shave, you remove the natural oils that protect your skin, which can make them very dry. This is exactly why we recommend slathering your legs and pits with Body Butter immediately after shaving! It makes them feel silky and smooth and it lasts all day long. Our Aluminum-Free Natural Deodorant also contains aloe vera to help keep your pits soft and smooth. It’s free of baking soda and otter irritants too, which means it won’t sting if you apply it post shave!

5. Tame flyaways and frizzies

Though our Natural Shampoo and Conditioner with Aloe & Lavender is super moisturizing for your hair, sometimes in the winter when the heat is blasting or summer when the humidity is off the charts, we can end up with more flyaways and frizzies than normal. Applying a little of our Body Butter to your ends or lightly applying to your flyaways can help keep your hair looking smooth no matter the season. Just remember that a little goes a long way, so if you're a first-time user, be careful how much you use so you don't end up with the greasies!

6. Soften skin & prevent stretch marks during pregnancy

Hello Joyous Organic Ultra Moisturizing Body Butter

When our founder, Joy, was pregnant with her daughter this was the only product she used on her growing belly and she had no stretch marks. Thanks to all the nourishing butters and oils, it prevents itchiness as the skin stretches in the second and third trimester. This is a godsend for many mamas as this is a common complaint during pregnancy.  

7. Use it as a diaper cream 

Like all of our products, Body Butter is completely free from harmful chemicals and toxins, making it safe to use on the most delicate bodies including babies and children. It leaves their skin feeling soft, smooth and supple and you won’t have to worry about any irritating or potentially toxic ingredients soaking into their delicate systems. If you have babies, try slathering their little bums with our BB after a diaper change to help prevent diaper rash (thanks to the antifungal properties in coconut oil and cocoa butter) and irritation.
