What's the difference between Body lotions and body butters?

Keeping newborns skin moisturized can be challenging. In their first few months, newborns are prone to skin irritations, and dryness. Not only babies, but even children aged 5-8 years are prone to dry skin.

A baby's skin is thinner and more sensitive than an adult's, so it loses moisture more rapidly, leading to dryness, itching, rashes, cracking, and peeling. Treat your baby's skin with a gentle moisturizer to keep dryness and irritation at bay.

So what's the difference between Body lotions and body butters?

Body lotions are the lightest type of moisturiser. They are primarily composed of water and a small amount of oil, having limited moisturising capabilities, resulting in a runny consistency. Lotions are not powerful enough to compensate for the absence of oil on a baby's skin. The lotion does not penetrate deep into the skin and only lasts a few hours on the top layer. According to studies, lotions can cause skin irritation such as rashes, itching, and other skin problems if used repeatedly. Body lotion has a higher water content than body butter

Body butters  are thicker than lotions. They provide deep moisturization and a soothing effect on the baby's skin. It makes the skin soft and supple. It has anti-microbial properties.  Body butter is also more natural so no need to worry about added preservatives. Many body butters also include A & E vitamins butter is overall better for rough skin that needs intensive moisture like skin prone to eczema, psoriasis and dry skin.
