What is the difference between Body Butters, Creams, and Lotions?

3 Differentiators

  • Texture
  • Water Content
  • Elements

We will look at these areas in more details.


Body butters moisturize and stay on longer.
  • Butters are the thickest because they use a combination of carrier oils and essential butters.
  • Creams are thinner than butters, while lotions are the lightest because they contain water-based ingredients.

Water content

Less or no water = More retention of benefits

  • Butters doesn’t contain water; as a result, they stay on your skin for longer so your skin can absorb all the great benefits of the product.
  • Creams and lotions will contain water-based ingredients.


What’s in that product?!

  • Butters are usually made of carrier oils and butter that come from natural ingredients, such as palm, shea, cocoa, among others.
  • Creams and lotions contain an assortment of water-based ingredients and oils, some of which are naturally derived, while others are synthetic. Moreover, many lotions and creams contain ingredients (and acids) used to preserve the product.
