organic lavender body butter
We normally discontinue our Body Butter during the summer due to its temperature sensitivity. We do not use stabilizers or additives, only 4 pure and natural ingredients, so it's possible our Body Butter will melt in transit or in warm climates/households without AC. However, due to popular demand, we are offering our Body Butter during the summer, but at your own risk! Please be aware it may melt and you will have to go through the steps to revive it. Follow the steps on our "melted" highlight on our Instagram page @sustainyourselfshop
A plastic-free alternative to plastic packaged lotion. Our whipped Organic Body Butter is an oil-based, potent, plant-powered potion for dry skin. You’ll notice how it melts right onto the surface of your skin at the first touch. Sooo dreamy.
Our formula is made with four rich and nutrient-dense ingredients that nourish, replenish and hydrate the skin, leaving it soft and silky. May improve/soothe skin suffering from psoriasis and eczema. Great for massages and for application after shaving. We recommend applying immediately after a warm shower, while your pores are still open, onto exfoliated and slightly damp skin for best results!

Frequently Asked Questions
When is the best time to apply Body Butter?
Body Butter will absorb the fastest when applied to slightly damp and warm skin, after taking a shower. The water and humidity allow for faster absorption.
Can this be used as a face cream?
Yes and no. We only recommend using our Body Butter as a face cream if you have mature skin or don't react poorly to coconut oil on your face. Coconut oil is comedogenic (clogs pores) and can cause irritation and acne. Not everyone breaks out from coconut oil but if you know you are prone to acne we do not recommend using our Body Butter on your face. However, it is an amazing moisturizer for mature and non-acne-prone skin.
How long does one jar last?
This really depends on person to person- how much you apply, if you use it every day, or several times a day. But with customer feedback and personal experience, we estimate:
2 oz: 1 week
4 oz: 2 weeks
8 oz: 4-5 weeks
Is this effective at preventing stretch marks?
Our Body Butter is great for moisturizing growing bellies. Keeping skin moisturized may help eliminate or reduce the occurrence of stretch marks. Coconut oil, cocoa butter, olive oil, and shea butter can help keep skin hydrated and supple. Along with making proactive choices, such as drinking lots of water, our key ingredients may be helpful for preventing stretch marks.
Why does the unscented option smell like chocolate?
All of our Body Butter scents have an undertone scent of cocoa. This is due to the use of pure, organic, unrefined cocoa butter.
Does it still work if it melted?
Yes! Our Body Butter is extremely temperature sensitive and can melt in transit during warmer months, which is why we discontinue it in the summer. However, if you receive melted Body Butter, you can still use it melted. Or you can revive it. Simply melt it down completely in 10 second intervals in the microwave, mix, refrigerate until completely solid and then whisk with a handmixer until fluffy. Keep in a cool place.
Do you have a refill/jar return program?
We do! We will accept all of our containers and packaging to be responsibly reused or recycled. Anything from we give you, from containers, boxes, peanuts, tape, and more can be returned to us. Learn more about our program on our Jar Returns page to see if you're eligible for store credit.

This is by far my favorite body butter/lotion that I’ve ever used. It’s the feel like an amazing moisturizer and it is doesn’t disappear immediately and it’s doesn’t leave you sticky either. I love it year round!
Will definitely be ordering this product again
I’ve been using this body butter for years and absolutely LOVE it!
I have eczema on certain areas on my body and this stuff legit healed my skin! This is perfect to layer on after a warm bath. I bought two for my mom and myself!
This body butter is amazing. The texture is awesome, and I love the way the lavender and natural scent of the cocoa butter compliment each other in this product. I use this every time I get out of the shower - it is truly the best!
