DHC Olive Body Butter Butter Review

DHC Olive Body Butter Butter Review

DHC Olive Body Butter, £15: This is a way overdue review, but I really wanted to post it anyway as I really like the product. It is quite price at £15 for 100g, and it might look like any body butter. However I am very impressed with the ingredient list, and it has got a lot of interesting ingredients in there! It's thick but not greasy and smells super yummy. For me, it is perfect for a every day body lotion but I know some people prefer a lighter lotion for every day use. If you're one of them- use it on dry areas like hands, elbows, knees and feet or once in a while before you go to bed as a special treat! :)

DHC Olive Body Butter Butter Review

Description: "Wrap your skin in a decadent veil of hydration from seven botanicals: shea butter, cocoa butter, olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, squalane and argan oil. It hydrates and seals in moisture from natural emollients for ultra softness—from your fingers to your toes." The description is very accurate as it contains all of the ingredients mentioned, even in that order (in the ingredient list). It definitely hydrates your skin and seals in moisture.

Concept: Now here is the part I don't fully get. Contrary to some (a lot) companies who will call a product "Olive Oil" but the product mainly consists of Sunflower seed oil- it is true that the main oil in this product is Olive Oil. However both Cocoa Butter and Shea Butter are before Olive Oil in the ingredient list, meaning it contains more of those two ingredients. On top of that, the product doesn't have a "Olive oil scent", nor is it coloured green like most Olive Oil products are. This isn't a problem in terms of how the product works, but I am not sure why it is called "Olive Body Butter
Formula: Now the consistency is that of a normal body butter, think the body shop shea body butter for example. Anyway, even though it doesn't smell of Olive/Olive Oil it smells pretty amazing.. I'd say it smells pretty fruity! :)

DHC Olive Body Butter Butter Ingredient list

Ingredients: This is a picture I took of the ingredient list, and I think it is a very impressive one! Straight after water there is a silicone, then Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter & Glycerin. The oils in the body butter are: Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Avocado Oil & Argan Oil. I think we all know the benefits of natural butters and oils on our skin so no need for me to go on about that. However you might not have heard of Squalane:
  • This is an expensive ingredient which is derived from Squalene, which in turn is derived from Shark Oil. The reason that Squalane is used instead of Squalene is because it is cheaper and it is also more stable, and has a longer shelf life (source). Anyway Squalane is a lipid that occurs naturally in our bodies and can moisturise your skin and heal crapped skin.
