Feel good about using this body butter as all day-moisturizer because it is packed with naturally beneficial oils with no extras: no artificial colours or fragrances, preservatives, emulsifiers, or stabilizers.
Shea butter nourishes skin with vitamins A, E, and F to keep it clear and healthy and provide relief to damage caused by over exposure to the sun. Most significantly, shea easily penetrates skin while allowing it to breathe because it doesn’t clog pores.
Grape seed oil helps damaged and stressed tissues because it possesses regenerative and restructuring qualities. Apricot kernel oil, commonly found in baby products, contains vitamins A, C & E. It quickly absorbs into skin and helps to calm the inflammation and/or irritation of eczema and dermatitis. Apricot kernel oil also has a great shelf life when kept out of direct sunlight. A little bit of tapioca starch helps the product glide on without leaving a greasy residue
No essential oils are added to this formula for scent, so the naturally nutty scent of shea butter is present. If you prefer to reduce exposure to nuts, JTG also offers a cocoa-based body butter. Alternate options are available below:
This preservative-free product lasts longer when exposure to the elements (i.e. air, humidity, sunlight) is kept to a minimum. Please store in a cool, dark place and keep tightly sealed between uses.

- Samples are packed in resealable HDPE plastic pods.
- Full sized products offer 65 g/2.29 oz of body butter filled by weight (not volume) in a 125 ml glass jar.
1) Just the Goods whipped body butter is packed by weight, not volume, so jars containing the batches that turn out more fluffy tend to look as if they are more full than jars containing batches that don’t have as much air whipped into them. A number of factors determine how much air whips into a batch including: how long a batch rests in the freezer, temperature when whipping starts, how long the batch is whipped after the freezing process, or even how cold a batch was when it was packed into the jar and was sealed. These are issue that can be controlled in a mechanized/automated factory setting, but since handmade products involve human interaction, small differences from batch to batch can and do happen. The density, quantity and type of essential oils used in each recipe can also contribute differences between batches.
Please also note that jars are filled by hand using a spatula so each jar may look different when packed -- some will be filled closer to the bottom, some will be filled closer to the top. When I'm filling jars, the goal is to work quickly and to put the same weight of product into each jar. If a jar is packed slightly over 65g (i.e.1 - 3g) I won't scoop product out to create a uniform jar; however, if a jar is packed considerably more (3 - 10 g), I will adjust as necessary to make sure the amount of product packed is closer to 65 g.
TL;DR: All jars do contain the same weight of product... the only difference is that some jars may contain fewer microscopic air bubbles. Jars are packed by hand and each may appear different.
2) Please note that this all natural product is made without artifical emulfisying agents to prevent it from melting during shipping in the summer. With that being said, Just the Goods has been shipping this product year 'round for the past 11 years and has observed that the shea butter and/or cocoa butter it contains is a resilient carrier oil capable of melting and solidifying multiple times without harming it's composition. As such, these products aren't considered damaged if they melt during shipping and are still perfectly good to use once they have recongealed into balm form. To do this, allow the product to rest in your fridge for approximately an hour. Yes, the texture will different because there won't be as many/any air bubbles trapped in the product from the whipping process, but the product itself is still completely fresh and will work in exactly the same way. Store remaining product in a cool, dry place to maximize longevity.
Since a lot of folks ask... Yes! This product contains shea butter which contains high quantities of vitamin A known to help promote elasticity of skin thus reducing the creation and/or appearance of stretch marks when applied regularly to skin before they form.
