Each reusable glass jar is hand made in small batches and is 8 oz. by weight. There is ZERO water content in this product, but the fresh goat milk does make it a little softer than a traditional body butter. This is A LOT of product and a little goes a long way since it is so concentrated. We had several requests for larger jars, and we made that happen! Goat’s milk products are very different. It is creamy and smooth with unique nourishing properties that make it a great ingredient to add to anything that touches your skin. Goat’s milk is known for its anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It helps remove dead skin cells to reveal the new, healthy skin underneath. It’s loaded with alpha hydroxy acids (specifically, lactic acid) which helps aid in skin rejuvenation. Then it soothes irritating conditions such as acne, eczema, or rosacea. It adds vitamins, minerals, and rehydrates, leaving your skin feeling moisturized and nourished. Some vitamins include A, B1, B6, B12, C, D, and E. The high fat content in goat’s milk is extra moisturizing for dry skin and the pH is close to our natural skin pH, which allows for better penetration of moisture and nutrients.
Each handmade batch will vary in texture and density. Do not fret, the ingredients will always be the same. Body butters are very temperature fickle.
Please just assume these will arrive melted. That way no one is surprised or disappointed.
Body butter will melt in temperatures over 80 degrees. The product is still great and works just the same should this happen. Just give a little stir and pop into the refrigerator until hardened. We highly recommend keeping it in a cool place and out of direct sunlight. We are not responsible if you live in a hot climate or if the product melts in the mail/transit. But we WILL do our best to make sure it goes right from our farm to the local post office without sitting around in the sun all day. Many companies use unnecessary chemicals to keep body butter from melting, but we do not. Please do not have us ship this to a location where it will sit in a hot mailbox or porch all day because it will melt! Please make sure you are home to receive the shipment if weather is hot.
