Winter is almost round the corner and what is the first thing that comes to your mind? Fluffy warm clothes,hot chocolate and dry skin. 😛
In my case,I also start worrying about onset of my eczema,which thankfully,I have managed to keep it away by strictly following a fixed skincare. If you want to know what I do for my eczema-prone/ dry /sensitive skin,follow the link. I have also shared tips for people suffering from eczema. Check it out here.
Body butters are thick moisturisers or creams,which stay for a longer duration. Also they are ideal for all people specially those who have severe dry skin due to its thick nature.
About the brand: Pure Suds Skin Treats brings to you a world of luxurious hand-crafted soaps minimizing the use of harsh chemicals on a daily basis. Promoting minimally processed skincare which include a range of cold-process hand-crafted soaps, Body butters, Sugar scrubs, Face scrubs, Lotions and Lip balms.

Price and quantity: INR 899 for 150 g which is cheap considering it is organic and how much it is costly when you buy high end body butters of same quantity.
Ingredients: Olivem 1000, oliwax, borage oil, soya-bean oil, Shea butter, sesame oil, glycerine, cetyl alcohol, essential oil, phenoxyethanol.
Cetyl alcohol can be found in many skin products. This is a thickener and is added to make the product glide and slip easily. Olivem 1000 is a emulsifier for natural made formulations so that water and oils bind together. ( Let’s be scientific 😀 ) Oliwax stabilises oil-water emulsions. Phenoxyethanol is a mild preservative which is just 0.7 % .
These chemicals don’t bear any harmful effect as far I know and are required for creams and body butters. 🙂
Packaging: Comes in a transparent jar with golden screwed cap. The labels are on the side bearing the name,ingredients,product description and rest of the usual details. The plastic jar is very sturdy to carry around and looks classy sitting on the shelf. 🙂
Texture and color: It is whipped cream,white in color.
My views: I apply this just after bath so as to trap moisture and at night before sleeping. This keeps my skin soft throughout the day. It doesn’t impart greasy feeling which is a plus point.It gets absorbed into the skin in a minute or two. The fragrance is very light on the nose and lingers for sometime.So sensitive noses needn’t worry. 😉 When applying,quantity required is less otherwise it may get sticky.
Overall verdict is go for it. It is organic,tackles dry skin,is cheap and looks sassy.
See you all in my next post,take care,Love you all. :-*
