Water in cosmetics always comes with a number of additives that do nothing for our skin health. That is why we completely avoid water in all our formulations. And yet, water is of great importance for skin health. Does this sound confusing? I'll clear it up for you and show you why Body & Belly Butter should be used on moist skin.
The skin loves natural fats in combination with water. If you look at the processes of the skin, you will understand why this is so: Its own all-natural protection from drying out consists of the same components: A fat coat formed from sebaceous and sweat glands, also called acid mantle or hydrolipid mantle. So to speak their personal moisturizer for an intact skin health.
However, this natural protection is impaired or even disturbed in many people. This can be manifested, for example, by dry, irritated or brittle skin. The causes for a disturbed acid mantle can be diverse. Whether it is due to excessive hygiene, irritating or too many ingredients, or illness.
The Body Butter with marigold orange or the unscented Belly Butter can support this natural skin protection. Since they do not contain water, we must supply this externally. And that via our tap water! (Actually more sensible than paying dearly for water in the product anyway). Now that you've learned about the acid mantle, it's self-explanatory why we need the water. The great thing is, it has several advantages at once.
The 4 advantages when applied to damp skin
- The residual moisture on the skin is trapped in the form of moisture by the Body Butter or Belly Butter and prevents it from evaporating.
- The products are absorbed more quickly into the skin.
- I find the skin feeling more pleasant than when applied to dry skin.
- The products are even more productive than usual. A fingertip of the Body Butter is enough for me, for example, for an entire arm.
My tip for use on damp skin
I apply the Body Butter immediately after showering. When I get out of the shower, I don't dry myself quite thoroughly, I take the Body Butter and quickly melt it into a golden oil in the palm of my hand. Then I spread it on my still damp skin everywhere my body needs care. And you will be amazed how little Body Butter is necessary for it. A little bit really goes a long way!
Means, with water-free cosmetics help must go: Your tap water!
