The Butters is the only all-plant based, all-natural, all-purpose, head-to-toe moisturizer, conditioner, and lubricant. The Butters mixes six of the world's most nutrient-packed oils and butters with organic aloe vera fillet gel (we know that makes it sound like a fish, but really it just means it includes only the inner gel part of the aloe plant), apple cider vinegar and arrowroot to create a unique moisturizing experience.
From the creator of The Butters, Jerome Stuart Nichols:
“The Butters was created as a solution to three problems in my life: chronic ashiness, dry hair, and most importantly, a lack of quality lube made for the sex I have. There are lots of products that solve the first two well enough, but I’ve never found a lube that’s beneficial to every orifice, non-toxic, plays well with lots of toy materials, won’t stain sheets, tastes good, is pregnancy-safe, and carries a reasonable price.
After lots of research, I landed on recipe that hit dead center on everything I need.
Each of The Butters' ingredients is used for their unique properties. Aloe provides pure, easy to absorb moisture and prevents The Butters from feeling oily. Apple cider vinegar balances pH, manages bacteria, prevents yeast infections, and gently cleanses. Arrowroot prevents drips, increases the feeling of softness, and helps mix any lubrication your body makes with The Butters. Coconut and grapeseed oil give your skin essential vitamins and lipids, while offering immediate lubrication. Shea, palm, and lipid emulsion condition tissues, melts into slick long lasting lubrication, and offers healing properties for delicate areas.”
Use The Butters on your skin as a balm, in your hair as a moisturizer, on your nails as a conditioner, as a massage oil, as a leather and wood treatment, as a facial cleanser, as an ashiness eraser, as a shaving lube, as a make-up remover, for tattoo aftercare, and as a sexual lubricant. It’s oil based, so it lasts as long as silicone lube, but it sinks in better so you’re not left with a greasy feeling long afterwards.
Because it’s oil, it’s not safe to use it with latex or polyisoprene condoms and barriers. They’ll break. (It should be ok with polyurethane.) So, use it between you, yourself and anyone with whom you’re fluid bonded. Also, we recommend testing it on a non-important area of any toys before use. If the material of your toy doesn’t puff up a few hours after you put a dab on, it’s safe to use The Butters with the material of that toy.
It smells and tastes mostly of shea butter with a touch of coconut. It could stain sheets because it is oil, so you may want to put a towel under you if you use it in bed, though our reviewer and the creator say that their sheets do fine with this washing out.
You’d like this product if you want a super versatile all-over body product that sinks in and nourishes your skin.
You would not like this product if you don’t like the feeling of oils on you or your bits or you need a condom and/or dental dam compatible product.
Our reviewer said: “As someone who has used butters and oil on my skin all my life (aka as someone non-white) this is the perfect mixture of oily and creamy. It leaves a nice shine on the skin, but it doesn't feel oily or thick. I literally look like I'm dipped in gold when I wear it and makes my curls pop. I had the best anal of my life with the Butters. It provides a really really nice cushion and a slipperiness akin to a silicone lube without sticking around forever. I was able to go longer, faster, and harder without discomfort and I felt like I deep conditioned my asshole. The nice thing is if it gets on your skin or hair during sex it just gets absorbed and makes you look fly and healthy af. I literally use this multiple times a day for everything. Basically, all it hasn't done is fix my credit score.”
