Hydrate your skin, naturally
About Soothe Body Butter
Our soothe body butter is naturopathically formulated and specific for sensitive skin types as it contains no chemical or synthetic additives. A concentrated blend of nourishing plant and nut extracts increases skin hydration naturally without leaving residue. The pure essential oils used are Lavender, Hypericum and Sandalwood.
Known for its healing properties, the Aloe Vera plant has been used for medicinal purposes for centuries, and for good reason! The gel from the Aloe Vera plant contains proteolytic enzymes which help to repair dead skin cells. When used on the scalp, the enzymes prevent itching and moisturising the scalp to reduce dandruff. It also promotes hair growth, while conditioning and leaving the hair silky smooth. In terms of everyday use, Aloe Vera is gentle enough for sensitive skin types, and its antibacterial properties effectively work to kill bacteria on the face.

Nappy Rash is a skin condition, usually a result of wearing a wet or dirty nappy for too long. Prolonged dampness, friction and contact with ammonia found in urine can irritate sensitive baby skin. Nappy Rash appears as a red, raw and scaly rash, and is usually quite uncomfortable. Cradle Cap is another skin condition which only affects babies under the age of four months. Typically appearing like a bad case of dandruff on a newborn’s scalp, Cradle Cap is characterised by white or slightly yellow scales or scabs, and is usually a result of excess oil production by skin glands around the hair follicles.
