Body Butter & Shower Oil: What’s the Difference?

When looking into how to keep your skin happy and healthy, it can be easy to get lost in the brand-name products with long lists of ingredients, some of which have been sitting on shelves for months and end up doing more harm to your skin than good. That’s not the case at Buff City Soap. We hand make all of our products daily in our Soap Makeries so they’re always fresh with 100% of the plant-based goodies you love and none of the crap you don’t. So if you’re ready to switch up your body moisturizing routine or dive into taking better care of your skin, we’ve got you covered. Let’s jump right in! 
 
The key difference between Buff City Soap’s Whipped Body Butter and Shower Oil is their ingredients: While the Shower Oil is oil-based, containing an Olive/Rapeseed Oil Blend, Almond Oil, Avocado Oil, Hemp Oil, and Phthalate & Paraben Free Fragrances, the Whipped Body Butter is butter-based, containing Organic Shea Butter, Olive Oil, and Essential Oils and, as always, Phthalate & Paraben Free Fragrances. The difference in ingredients causes a difference in consistency. 

 
Whipped Body Butter

While most body butters are thick and heavy, our delightfully scented Whipped Body Butter is light and airy, yet still provides an infusion of moisture to the skin. It smooths onto the skin easily and leaves it feeling soft and supple. If your skin is extremely dry and cracked, has visible dry patches, or just needs an infusion of moisture during the harsh winter months, our Whipped Body Butter could be just what you need! 
 


Shower Oil

Buff City Soap’s one-of-a-kind Shower Oil is a fluid consistency and absorbs quickly into the skin, providing a hydrating touch-up. If you have sensitive and/or combination skin, Shower Oil may be what your skin has been craving! Pro tip: spray and smooth over skin after shaving for extra-soft skin.
 
 
So at the end of the day, choosing which to use is based on your skin type and general preference. Whipped Body Butter can help heal and replenish your skin’s natural elasticity. Use more frequently if skin is in need of extreme replenishment or just during drier months when skin is feeling dehydrated. Shower Oil can help keep your skin hydrated and happy on a daily basis.
 
Our Soap Makeries provide a variety of Signature Scents and you may even be able to have a custom scent created—just ask one of our expert Soap Makers!
