Intensive Rescue Moisture Locking Body Butter is an emollient, buttery blend of petrolatum, glycerin, silicones, and waxes. All of these ingredients can moisturize and protect dry skin from moisture loss, and the generous size makes this an inexpensive, basic moisturizing choice from the neck down, though this is recommended only if your skin is truly dry. (It’s great for the seasonal dryness that can occur during winter months.) Although this is packaged in a jar, there are no antioxidants to become unstable, which makes this acceptable for a Good rating. This contains fragrance in the form of ethylene brassylate.
Our Body Butter's thick, creamy formula deeply conditions parched, dry skin-to bring instant relief and long-lasting moisture to troublesome dry skin to help dry skin actually heal itself.

The Vaseline brand is perhaps among the oldest and most well-known around the world. Since the advent of Vaseline Petroleum Jelly in the late 1800s, the brand has been synonymous with treating dry, chafed, cracked skin. Although petroleum jelly is among the best ingredients for preventing moisture loss and healing dry skin, it must be said that skin requires more than one ingredient to look and function at its healthy best. To that end, Vaseline has branched out from its original, ointment-like petroleum jelly to a line of body creams and lotions that contain a range of helpful ingredients for dry skin. Their body-care formulas aren't the most exciting around, but there are some good options. Adding to the handful of commendable products are Vaseline's widespread availability and relatively low price point.
This is definitely a line to shop carefully, because many of the body lotion formulas aren’t all that great; in fact, most of them pale in comparison to competing brands sold at the drugstore. Despite Vaseline’s history, they’re not consistently keeping pace with what modern research has shown is necessary to significantly improve dry skin. If you focus on their best products, you can find some bona-fide beauty bargains but again, this isn’t a line to shop blindly.
