Brand: Biochemica®

Biochemica® Soy Butter Ref is a soft, butter-like material which exhibits excellent spreadability on the skin, making it ideal as a massage butter or carrier for treatment products. As the skin ages, the intercellular bond between the skin cells becomes depleted, making it dry and porous. This causes the skin to become a less effective barrier against moisture loss, and free radicals which can damage otherwise healthy skin. Therefore, the skin needs an infusion of lipids (oil-like substances) to hydrate and protect skin cells. Biochemica® Soy Butter Ref replenishes the lipid bar­rier to help hold in the skin’s intrinsic moisture while softening dry, chaffed and damaged skin.

Biochemica® Soy Butter Ref is also useful in hair conditioning products to add moisture, shine and conditioning attributes to hair without using petroleum based additives.

It adds moisturizing attributes to creams, lotions and bar soaps. May be used in cosmetics, toilet­ries, bar soaps, massage treatments, hair care and sun care applications.
