Simply put…Most body care product companies are made with harmful chemicals. These synthetic ingredients coupled with a lack of rich moisturizing cleansers can account for skin irritation and dryness.
However, when you read into their promises a bit more, they say they will reduce and limit the use of some of these carcinogens and toxic chemicals – not remove them completely.
Hand made, natural product companies, you know what’s in it and can pronouce the ingredients. What makes a handmade soap better than a commercially produced store-bought soap? First of all, did you know that most “soap” purchased in the store, is not really soap? Many of the commercial soaps available today are, actually, detergent.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration,”some of these detergent products are actually marked as soap but aren’t true soap in the common and legal definition of the word.”
You probably won’t find anything cheaper and safer than health and beauty product recipes you make in your own kitchen, if you have the time and the inclination. Mayonnaise and baby oil for dry skin, a lemon and egg white facial mask, and a sea salt skin scrub are among the countless recipes available all over the Internet. If nothing else, it might be a fun and inexpensive way to spend an evening.
I started my company, Silk Spa Creations to offer natural, unique, effective bath and body products to those seeking to experience the benefits of nature. I strive to create luxurious bath and body products without adding anything that can cause irritation or harmful chemicals to your hair, body and skin or the environment.
I was concern about all the bad stuff that people were putting in and on their bodies, skin and the incredible health conditions that exist. If I can help someone soften their skin with some healthy ingredients then I’ve accomplished a good thing. I enjoy being unique and not following the crowd just because its popular.

To make this Body Butter the ingredients I used:
- Shea Butter
- Jojoba Oil
- Lavender EO
Combine all ingredients and you have this creamy, silky body butter you can use during the winter months coming up.
- Shea butter is said to help reduce the appearance and condition of eczema, soothes sunburn, rashes, reduces inflammation, helps control acne & other skin blemishes, soothes chapped lips and moisturize’s dry skin. It is hypoallergenic and absorbs easily into the skin. A little goes a long way!
- Jojoba oil comes from the beans of the shrub like plant, making it an excellent moisturizer for all skin types, including extremely dry and mature skin. It helps unclog pores and lifts grime and imbedded impurities. Jojoba oil can, in most cases, be used on skin that is broken out, as it helps to control acne. It Also makes a great scalp cleanser for the hair!
- Lavender EO is anti-bacterial, Its calming and sedative properties make this a wonderful oil to help relax, fight stress, anxiety and to promote sleep! This oil is great for scrapes and wounds, it can be used to treat skin disorders such as acne, burns, dry skin, eczema, itchy skin, sunburn, seborrhea and skin inflammation.
