Item Description

Vita Pulita Body Butter is a rich, thick lotion that initially goes on oily, but is quickly absorbed by the skin. It is important, when using shea and cocoa products, to choose raw unrefined over the refined versions. The process of refining exposes the shea or cocoa butter to the chemical hexane, which strips the shea or cocoa butter of its natural odor while deodorizing it. In the process, most of the butter's vitamins and minerals are destroyed. Vita Pulita Body Butter uses only unrefined shea and cocoa butter in its luxurious body butter formula. Therefore, there will be an underlying "candy" smell from the natural cocoa butter, although most of it is masked by the lavender and orange essential oil. However, most of my customers love the smell of this body butter.

Unrefined shea butter contains vitamin A, a natural, but very low, SPF, and some clinical studies have shown that it reduces wrinkles after 4-6 weeks of use. Unrefined cocoa butter contains antioxidants, and it thought to reduce scars and stretch marks. Both cocoa butter and shea butter are highly moisutizing.Studies have also found that virgin organic coconut oil increases wound healing, and is a powerful moisturizer for skin due partly because of its high levels of Vitamin E.  Rich in Vitamins B and E, rice bran oil increases the elasticity of the skin and keeps it healthy and soft.

Your skin is your largest organ and what you put on it is absorbed into your body. Most lotions contain parabens, known endocrine disrupters which mimic the behavior of estrogen in our bodies. As such, it is thought that such products may increase the risk of hormone dependent tumors. Read the recommendation of Dr. Jennifer Ashton from the television show, The Doctors:

There is no need to forego luxurious products though. Rich body butters, like Vita Pulita's, smell and feel fantastic and do not contain any harmful ingredients; just read the label. 

A customer recently shared with me that Vita Pulita Body Butter healed her cracked and dry heels. She applied it at night, put on cotton socks and within a week her feet were soft and smooth. I gave it a try and she was absolutely right!

Note: This is an all natural product made without preservatives. It will have a shelf life of at least 6 months provided that you do not introduce water into the product. Please scoop out body butter with dry hands only and keep the container out of extreme heat. Because exposure to extreme heat will cause it to melt, I do not ship Body Butter during the summer months. However, if your own body butter should melt because you inadvertently left it in the car, you should stir it and refrigerate to re-thicken. It will still work well, but the consistency will be changed.
