It’s a candle but for your body? It’s a luxury body butter but its a candle? Confused? Don’t be – but prepare to be amazed!
When people see our body candles they ooh and ahh at the pretty packaging, delight at the amazing aromas and stare blankly when we say they are body butter candles! We get it, people don’t expect candles to be something you smear all over your body. But let me explain why we have created our body butter candles and why people love them so much!
We have always found that warm oils are absorbed better into the skin and provide a much nicer user experience. With this in mind we created our body butter candles so that when lit, the flame would gently melt the oils and butters to form a beautiful pool of warmed oil which can be applied to the body to deeply nourish and hydrate. It is the perfect method of warming your oil before applying. Taking this idea one step further we wanted to incorporate a number of high performance natural butters and oils to produce a high end natural product that was easily absorbed into the skin and delivered amazing results.
So we set about working on our perfect blend and decided upon a combination of Cosmetic Soy Wax, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Argan Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil and Sweet Almond Oil. Our unique blend produces a silky solid body butter that when warmed reduces to smooth and warming body oil. Each of our ingredients have their own unique characteristics and benefits that deeply hydrate and feed the skin.
They couldn’t be any easier to use – light the wick, burn for approx ten minutes, blow out, leave for 30 seconds and apply. The luxurious feel of our oils against your skin will convert you to the Marste Spa way of bodycare!
Incase you are thinking it (don’t worry we have) our body candles will not burn you as they melt at a point slightly above body temperature. They don’t leave a sticky feeling on your skin – there is no wax in them (Cosmetic Soy Wax is in itself a product used in many skin products and is easily absorbed) only beautiful natural butters and oils. There are no nasties such as parabens, sulphates or mineral oils in our candles so they are the perfect high performance body product. As by law skincare products can only contain a low percentage of essential oils, our candles are not highly fragranced in that they would fill a room when burned – but that is not what they are intended for (we do have a range of fabulous Room Candles that do fill a room ).
