Have y’all hopped on the turmeric train yet? No? Well you need to get on it. Once you do, you’ll never get off, I promise. I first learned about using turmeric in skin care years ago when I first began to formulate some of our earliest products. I was actually researching natural colorants for our body scrubs. I was looking for something that would tint orange. Coincidentally, I was also trying to surprise my better half with some homemade Indian food. Well, it turns out that I am terrible at cooking Indian food, but I discovered (the hard way) during this process that turmeric turns everything a lovely shade of soft orange. Hmmmm.

Y’all, I get asked a lot of skincare-related questions. Like, a LOT. But the one I think I get the most is “What makes this body butter better than my regular lotion?”, so I thought I’d try and answer that here, among the inter-webs, so you can refer back anytime.
And before we get into the nuts and bolts of this query, I KNOW THAT YOU LOVE YOUR BATH AND BODY WORKS LOTION. I know, ok? I know you love the scent, I know you love how it feels when you apply it, I know you love that it is absorbed quickly, I know. But listen, you know what else I know? I know that your favorite lotion is also filled up with all kinds of ingredients that actually dry your skin out. Now we have talked at length about the fact that there are chemicals in these lotions that can be harmful in other ways too, but the big thing is that the very lotion that you love to slather on 100 times per day is actually drying you out, which means that you gotta apply more, which means that you gotta buy more too…see where I’m going with this?
So, I recently received the following email from one of my regular clients, and I thought I’d share it with you guys in case you’ve had similar issues:
My skin was so great after a sauna treatment I had a few weeks ago. I’ve been slathering on lotion (Cetaphil) to try and maintain the results, but now I’m finding that I’m having terrible breakouts and have lost that lovely, glowy skin that I had right after the sauna. I am using your cleansing oil in the evening and organic soap in the shower. Please give me a prescription to get my good skin back!
