Our Strength Tallow Body Butter was developed to hydrate dry, cracked skin while allowing the vital essences of the powerful botanicals to absorb deep into your skin. This tallow body butter does not create a harmful barrier on your skin as does many petroleum-based lotions in today's marketplace. Rather, it contains ingredients similar to our own skin's oil, known to improve radiance and glow almost immediately.
This natural moisturizer is very concentrated and can last a long time. It can be used on the whole body, including the face as the ingredients are not known to clog the pores. Within 5-10 minutes, the oils will absorb deep into the layers of your skin, leaving no greasy feeling, just pure, clean moisture that will last all day. Because the ingredients in this body butter are the least refined and purest form possible, your skin will enjoy the rich blend of essential fatty acids, antioxidants and vitamins intended by nature and not commonly found in modern day skin care.
The aroma of this cream is a bright green and lemony with a sweet, rich, woody, balsamic undertone. May Chang (similar scent as lemongrass) is from the pepper fruit of an evergreen tree native to Indonesia, China and Taiwan. This fine essential oil is prized for its use in medicine and as a culinary spice. It is believed to alleviate stress and anxiety which may lead to depression. It is also said to benefit acne and oily skin. Patchouli is also thought to alleviate depression, anxiety and stress. It is also all about strength and balance. Patchouli has a history of use as a grounding oil with the effect of healing our disconnection within our bodies, as such, it has also been referred to as a natural aphrodisiac. Cedarwood is considered fortifying, strengthening and toning for the energetic body. It also has been used to improve acne, oily skin and dandruff. These three amazing oils come together as a perfectly balanced aromatic and energetic blend.
The above is worded in such a way as to not make any actual claims about the oil's benefits, as restricted by the FDA. Please research the individual ingredients to see what benefits they offer and work to develop a relationship with the oils so you can make the judgement call yourself. Give Nature a try and see what she can do for you!
Due to the delicate nature of our 100% natural body butters, we only ship our body butters from October 1st through April 30th to prevent melting/leakage and texture variances. Even though we do, our body butters can still melt or develop little shea butter "beads" over time due to the temperature fluctuations during transit (it's just much less likely in the cooler months). (View pictures of this texture change here). While not common, if this does happen and you would like to return the body butter to its original creamy state, follow these directions or simply rub the cream in between the palms of your hands to melt before applying.
As we all know, Mother Nature will do as she pleases and we are not willing to risk your health by adding chemicals, synthetic stabilizers or emulsifiers just to prevent this natural reaction. Shea Butter is a finicky little ingredient but one of the best ingredients for the skin (along with grass-fed beef tallow) so we won't formulate our body butters without out it!
Nefertem Naturals™ offers natural products that bring the power of nature into daily routine.
