When I was contacted about reviewing Ellovi Butter, an all natural body butter, I was happy to oblige. I was in desperate need of an all-over moisturizer, and it was as if the universe was listening. Since I had stopped using personal care products made with synthetic ingredients, I had yet to find a natural body lotion that I liked. My arms and legs were in an embarassing state of flaky dryness. Then along came Butter by Ellovi to save the day.
A Natural Alternative to
Butter by Ellovi is a natural alternative to body butters containing artificial fragrance and other synthetic ingredients. Upon returning from a winter trip to a cold climate, I purchased some Shea Body Butter from The Body Shop and was disappointed to find that it contained “fragrance”. The fragrance was so irritating to me that I could not even use the Shea Body Butter. Butter by Ellovi, on the other hand, has no added fragrance.
Ingredients in Butter by Ellovi
- Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Oil,
- Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil,
- Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil (Hemp),
- Organic Corn Starch,
- Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea), and
- Marula Nut Oil [which seems to be missing from the label on the bottom of the jar].
Butter by Ellovi was not listed in the Skin Deep Cosmetics Safety Database, so I used the database to create my own report. It returned a score of 0, low hazard. The only ingredient with a score above 0 was hemp seed oil, which has a score of 2, low hazard, due to use restrictions.
Butter comes in an elegant and recyclable frosted glass jar. It contains 3.5 fl oz (104 ml). The classy packaging is one of my favorite features of Butter. Just from looking at it, you can tell that it is high-end.
We created Butter with powerful natural ingredients that invigorate skin. Ellovi Butter is pure, Vegan, cruelty-free, eco-friendly, ethical, intensely hydrating, and will leave your skin incredibility smooth and more youthful looking.
Butter is off-white with a soft creamy texture that spreads easily. In the jar, it looked like it might be hard, but it turned out to have a thinner consistency than most body butters. The texture really is similar to butter and it melts right into your skin. Ellovi Butter will leave you smelling like a coconut macaroon. There is no added scent, but the coconut oil is the ingredient that comes through the strongest.
The jar says to “apply all over,” which I did. I started with my face. The Butter stung a little on my facial skin, but it could have been because I let my face dry too long after washing and before applying the moisturizer. Butter effectively moisturizes arms, legs, feet, and mid-drift, while leaving a slight greasy residue.
Ellovi Butter receives its first star for containing 100% natural ingredients.
Butter earns another star for coming in a reusable and recyclable glass jar.
This all natural body butter earns a star for effectively moisturizing skin with only natural ingredients.
Butter by Ellovi misses out on one star, since the price of $26 for 3.5 fl oz is not the best value for your money. When you buy Butter, know that you are paying for the fancy packaging and the reassurance of purchasing a product with only natural ingredients.
Butter earns a final star for being a pleasure to use. It does have a prominent coconut scent, so you will probably only enjoy this product if you like the smell of coconut.
Overall, Butter by Ellovi earns 4 out of 5 stars and is recommended as an all natural body butter with a consistency as smooth as butter.
