Deciding between body butter, body oil, or body lotion ultimately comes down to your personal needs and preferences.
Body butter is made with a combination of oils that, when blended, stays solid at average room temperature. It contains no water. It is whipped to create a texture like a dense whipped cream. If it melts the bubbles disappear and the product turns into a balm. Body butter is thick and serves as a rich, long lasting moisturizer. Just the Goods’ body butter is blended with gluten-free tapioca to help reduce a greasy sensation. Still, this product is generally too thick to be used comfortably on hands. It is also not generally recommended that this product be used on the face since it could clog pores. However, some people report that they like using body butter on their face if they live in an extremely dry climate and/or use medications that are extremely dehydrating.
Just the Goods’ body butters are made with shea butter or cocoa butter. Shea is a nut, so it is not a safe choice for folks with nut allergies. Cocoa butter is made from cocoa beans, so it is nut-free. Both of these products are gluten-free. These products do not contain GMO-free soy-derived vitamin E. These products are blended by the batch, so customizations can not be offered.
Please note that the unscented version of these products means no scent has been added. The products smell like their ingredients: body butter with shea has a nutty undertone; nut-free body butter made with cocoa butter smells like cocoa.
These products are packed in glass jars and can not be used with a bottle pump.
Body Oil / Massage Oil
Body oil (also known as massage oil) is made with a combination of oils that always retains a liquid texture. It contains no water. This product can be used on the body or hands, but will require some time to fully absorb. It may leave a residue if not yet absorbed.
Just the Goods’ body oils are nut-free and gluten-free. These products are blended by the bottle, so if you need the GMO-free soy-derived vitamin E to be excluded, you may request that in the notes at checkout.
Please note that the unscented version of this product means no scent has been added. The product smells like its ingredients: grapeseed oil, safflower oil, and olive oil.
These products are packed in plastic or aluminum bottles and can be used with either a bottle pump or flip cap, both of which are available in the accessories section of this website.
Body lotion (sometimes referred to has "hand or body cream" is made with a combination of oil, water, and other ingredients that help the skin hold the moisture so it doesn’t absorb too quickly (i.e. vegetable glycerin and/or aloe vera, depending on the formula). This product can be used on the body or hands and absorbs very quickly with no greasy residue.
Just the Goods’ body lotions (and facial moisturizers) are nut-free and gluten-free. They contain GMO-free soy-derived vitamin E. These products are blended by the batch, so customizations can not be offered.
Please note that the unscented version of this product means no scent has been added. The unscented version of this product is the most neutral smelling of all products because it is made with grapeseed oil, which is already quite neutral.
These products are packed in plastic or aluminum bottles. Reusable pumps recommended for use when this product is in aluminum. Use of a pump is optional with plastic bottles. Flip top caps are not recommended.
