All you need to know about Body Butters
What is a body balm?
A body balm is a skincare product that uses oil or beeswax instead of water to create an easy to apply balm. Body balms are often used to target dry and cracked skin issues in areas such as hands, joints, heels and knees. Body balms shouldn't be used on your face. For dry skin on your face, choose a moisturiser for dry or dehydrated skin.
What is the difference between body balm and body butter?
The main difference between a body butter and a body balm is that balms tend to use more beeswax (and butters use more oils). They use similar ingredients, like added vitamins, minerals and ingredients with skincare benefits or scents, in varying quantities, but the amount of beeswax is the key difference. Because of this, body balms tend to leave the skin particularly smooth with the additional benefits of the wax – such as the cleansing of dead skin cells.
