Fresh Aloe Butter

We just released a fresh batch of pure organic aloe butter. Aloe body butter is solid but easy to spread at room temperature, and it melts on contact with the skin. Its texture is similar to many lip balms, in that is it solid and firm but easy to apply.

Aloe butter is a rich moisturizer and leaves a silky layer of protection on your skin, shielding it from dry air or wind.  It also is known for its rapid hydration of severely dry skin.  These properties make it an ideal lip balm, and it is also well suited for faces and hands that are exposed to the harsh elements. It also has healing and soothing properties, making it a great choice for irritated or itchy skin. Our aloe butter has no fragrance, colorants, preservatives, or other additives. It is pure white and has nearly no scent.

Aloe body butter will melt at around 85F, so keep in mind that it will liquefy in very warm temperatures. It will solidify as it cools and it won’t be harmed by the process, but it can be messy if it melts and you’re not prepared for it. We carry both a 4 ounce and 2 ounce size in reusable round tins. All natural body butters without preservatives, like ours, should be stored in a cool area away from direct sunlight.  Any natural body butter we sell will have a shelf life of at least 6 months (depending on the butter, some last as long as two years.) The shelf life can be extended by refrigeration.
