peppermint bark body butter
Peppermint Bark is finally here! Back for a limited time, stimulate your senses with our fave holiday-inspired scent. The unrefined cocoa butter and peppermint essential oil come together to give you the scent combo you didn’t know you needed.
Available in 4oz and 8oz.
Our Body Butter is a sustainable alternative to plastic packaged lotion. A whipped, oil-based, plant-powered potion for dry skin. You’ll notice how it melts right onto the surface on 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 skin suffering from psoriasis and eczema. Great for massages and for application after shaving. We recommend applying immediately after a warm shower, 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.
I love all the lotion products, but especially love the seasonal peppermint lotion. Goes on smooth and doesn’t irritate my skin :)
I just wrote the looongest love letter to this formula under the unscented one so I’ll keep this brief lol, amaaazing formula and I look forward to them rereleasing this scent every year. It smells so naturally like the best peppermint bark you’ve ever tasted? Very luxurious and soft and delicious 😌
I love this body butter! I get it every winter
The peppermint scent is perfect for winter. I love how whipped this body butter is, too! It’s a great overall body moisturizer. If using for hands only- use very little! It does rub into an oil consistency. Very much pleased with every product from this company.
was so excited about this item and was not disappointed!!! I love that it feels more like an oil based lotion because it does absorb into the skin much quicker with no slick and slimy residue like typical lotions. The scent is wonderful & I feel like I need to additionally buy a smaller size to keep in my purse so I can always have it on me! Great for my dry, wind burnt winter hands :)
Saving this as a Christmas gift to myself but did take a smell before wrapping and it’s amazing!! I’ve used the body butter before and am a massive fan. It’s goes on so smoothly and absorbs quickly so I’m not left with tons of oily residue which I appreciate.
