Body Butter Ingredients - Exotic & Spicy

As we get older, free radical activity increases. What are these free radicals? Well, they can typically come from UV rays, industrial chemicals, and environmental pollution. These free radicals cause oxidative stress on the body, which in turn can lead to premature aging of our skin. However, there is hope! Antioxidants found in various oils can help to neutralize these free radicals, which can alleviate some of the oxidative stress on the body. You'll also notice that almost all of our ingredients are unrefined/‘virgin’ and cold-pressed, as this allows the oils to retain the highest level of beneficial phytoactive compounds and be processed without any solvents or chemicals.

Now let's check out these ingredients. Click each one below to learn more:
