Rose and Violet Leaf Body Butter
A luscious whipped body butter that works wonders on dry, chapped or irritated skin. Cupuaçu, kokum and shea butters are whipped to create a silky smooth butter that sinks into skin without feeling overly greasy.
This blend is further mixed with rosehip oil, rose absolute and a sunflower oil that has been sun-infused with rose petals and violet leaf. This not only gives this butter the most amazing aroma — but it also delivers anti-aging properties deep into the skin, relieves dry, itchy skin and promotes a healthy radiance.
Apoterra infuses their Sunflower oil infused with Rose Petals and Violet Leaf. Sunflower oil absorbs quickly into the skin and is rich in moisturizing linoleic acid, Vitamin E and squalene. It provides essential fatty-acids that help maintain the skin barrier for decreased transepidermal water loss. The sun-infusion of rose petals into this oil adds anti-aging properties as well as an intoxicating and therapeutic scent. Violet leaves help alleviate dry and itchy skin. Apoterra's herbal infusion is made in-house and sun-infused using certified organic sunflower oil, rose petals and violet leaves.
Cupuaçu Butter is a rare butter derived from the seeds of the cupuaçu tree fruit. It has the amazing ability to attract 240% more water than other butters, so it is intensely hydrating and moisturizing. It absorbs easily into skin to make it more supple and elastic and is also deeply reparative, especially after sun exposure. Apoterra's cupuaçu butter is cold-pressed, unrefined, certified Fair Trade and is from Peru.

Coconut Oil is often considered a heal all beauty solve, coconut oil is rich in beneficial fatty acids, including lauric acid which deeply moisturize skin. It’s also filled with anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help calm and soothe dry, irritated and sensitive skin.

It takes 100 roses to create 1 drop of this magical oil of Rose Absolute. When applied topically, it helps improve skin health, increase skin hydration and also prevent breakouts thanks to its antibacterial properties.
