Busy churning out four new body butters, the folks at Canus Goat's Milk might have achy arms but they must have soft elbows (and knees, hands and feet). Canus Body Butters utilize all natural ingredients (not paraben in sight!) combining the moisturizing properties of fresh goat's milk with the natural richness of soybean oil, castor wax and palm oils. The added benefits of botanical extracts including wheat protein, olive oil and essential oils soften and protect the skin and make these body butters an olfactory dream for coping with rough and dry skin during the winter months. For best results, Canus recommends applying the body butter to your elbows, knees, hands and any other rough and dry areas. I have taken to applying it just before bed and it makes for the most peaceful, sweet smelling night's sleep. I also adore the thick consistency, the like of which I have never seen in any other product line.
The new Canus Body Butter line includes a reformulation of the Original Fragrance Body Butter as well as three new blends: Orchid, Marigold, and Olive & Wheat Protein. Olive Oil and Wheat Protein are known for their antioxidant, moisturizing, conditioning, protective and nourishing properties. They are very helpful in hydrating and keeping skin from feeling dry and uncomfortable. Canus added Orchid Oil from Thailand, as this plant lipid is known to be very helpful in hydrating the skin. Similarly, Calendula Oil from the marigold plant, is recognized for its antioxidant and emollient properties. The Canus Body Butters arrived in stores this fall at a price of $8 per hefty tub of Lait de Chevre body butter. Enjoy!
