While strolling through beauty isles in the supermarket, you may have come across products labelled as body butter and wondered if they are any different from body lotions that we typically use to keep our arms and feet sufficiently hydrated.
Both, body butters and body lotions, are meant to provide the essential nourishment and hydration that our skin requires to look healthy and appear young.
However, Body butters, unlike body lotions, have a very thick and smooth consistency. They are richer than body lotions. That’s why they are used by people with extremely dry or rough skin. Though nowadays, brands have started to make body butters to suit every skin type. Furthermore, they work way better than body lotions for moisturizing your skin if you stay in a cold or dry climate.
With this post, I am going to talk about the 10+ best body butters that are affordable and easily available in India. I have divided this list of top body butters according to their prices so that you can pick one as per your budget! Let’s get started with the post.

9. Vaseline Body Creams
By far the most affordable yet the most skin enriching body butter that I have come across! Vaseline body lotions are well loved, but their two latest launches, the body creams, are not any less popular! I have repurchased the Vaseline Cocoa Body Cream three or four times till now. And honestly, I have never regretted my choice. Its formula is thoroughly nourishing and has a pleasant smell of cocoa.
The other variant, Vaseline Deep Restore Body Cream has rich oats extracts that deeply hydrate the skin.
10. Himalaya Rich Cocoa Butter Body Cream
After the Vaseline Cocoa Body Cream, this rich cocoa butter body cream by Himalaya Herbals is my most favourite bodycare product! They both are very similar in terms of texture. You would hardly find any difference between their moisturization levels or fragrance.
Himalaya Herbals also has a special body butter for new mommies and it is called Himalaya For Moms Soothing Body Butter.
