Biochemica Rolls Out Line of Body Butters

July 12, 2007

BioChemica recently released a complete line of body care butters for the personal care industry at In-Cosmetics and New York Suppliers’ Day. Most are ideal for cosmetics, toiletries, soaps, massage oils and balms, hair care and sun care preparations and are completely oil miscible and contain no preservatives or coloring agents.

The collection includes Brazil Nut Butter, Chamomile Butter, Horsetail Butter, Lavender Butter, Lemon Butter (Ultra Refined), Lemon Grass Butter, Lime Butter (Ultra Refined), Matcha Green Tea Butter, Orange Butter, Pumpkin Seed Butter, Shea Butter HMP (High Melt Point) Ultra Refined, Tangerine Butter (Ultra Refined), Tucuma Butter (Ultra Refined), Brazil Nut Oil and Coffee Oil.

Body butters are becoming more popular in natural personal care. Take Brazil Nut Butter (berthorlletia excelsa seed oil (and) hydrogenated vegetable oil) as an example. The Brazil Nut Tree is found typically in the northern area of Brazil. The fruit of this tree is high in nutritional content, and the seed contains approximately 67% oil rich in fatty acids such as oleic and linoleic, with small amounts of myristic and stearic acids, along with phytosterol.

Biochemica takes this nutrient-rich oil and combines it with its proprietary exotic butter base to act on cutaneous dryness, forming a film that impedes evaporation of moisture from the skin.

Another example is Biochemica’s Lavender Butter (prunus amygdalus dulcis (almond) oil/lavandula angustifolia extract/hydrogenated vegetable oil). Lavender Butter is a proprietary cosmetic “butter” developed exclusively by BioChemica International for cosmetic use. Lavender Butter is actually an extract of whole lavandula angustifolia (lavender) flowers using a sweet almond oil/hydrogenated vegetable oil mix which produces a smooth, velvety “butter” at room temperature that smells of fresh growing lavender. This product delivers not only the clinically proven power of lavender, that produces calming effects, but also has an easy to use butter base. It is completely oil miscible and contains no preservatives or coloring agents.
