Superfood Skincare | Kombucha & Turmeric Body Butter | Basin

Posted on

It's often said "you are what you eat" and we would suggest this is true for what you put on your skin as well. Body Butter, arguably our most moisturizing product, features a creamy blend of cocoa butter, coconut oil, shea butter, and macadamia nut oil. Although rich, these ingredients absorb easily into the skin without leaving a greasy residue. Previously we enhanced our collection with Hemp Body Butter which contains natural hemp oil to help soothe irritated skin. This year, we're excited to share two new Body Butters: Kombucha and Turmeric Glow. We know these ingredients are good for the gut, but how can they improve your skin?

Kombucha Benefits

  • Natural antioxidants help protect the skin from sun damage and free radicals.
  • Probiotics replenish the skin to improve fine lines and wrinkles.
  • Probiotic-rich ingredients also aid in soothing skin irritations and chronic inflammation.
  • Vitamin B naturally strengthens the skin.
  • Turmeric Benefits

  • Natural antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial ingredient.
  • Soothes troubled skin, redness, and protects against sun damage.
  • Promotes the regeneration of new skin cells.
  • Adds a natural luster back to the skin.

  • KombuchaTurmericBB Everyone has different skin, different needs, and frequency of application just depends on you! If you're someone who struggles with dry patches you can certainly use Body Butter as you need it. Others may benefit more when applying to warm just-out-of-the-shower skin. Some might only use it on their hands and feet. It's up to you. If you're a fan of our traditional Body Butters, you'll love our new additions with bonus superfood ingredients!
