Body Care Products
1. Body Care
There’s different types of body care products to moisturise your body. The difference in these body care products is the base of the product. It requires trial and error to know which type is suitable and preferable for your body.
- Body lotion is lighter than body butter made from oil and water, it absorbs into the skin fast, leaving the skin in a smooth feeling and non-sticky.
- Body Oil is the type of body care product that is made with an oil based. The body oils’ intention is to protect the outer barrier of your skin by nourishing it. By protecting the outer barrier of the skin, it also prevents any moisture to leave your skin. But, it sinks into the skin quickly and leaves the skin feeling non-greasy.
- Body butter can be made from butter and oil, therefore the consistency of the product is much richer and denser. But body butters typically provide much intense hydration for the skin. Due to its thicker texture, it takes a longer period to be absorb into the skin, but you don’t need as much product in one use.
2. Hand Cream

This kind body care product will help nourish your hands, making them smooth and soft. The hand cream can also act as a protective layer for your hands from daily exposure.
