It started with my great, great grandmother

My mothers great grandmother sold this amazing skin cream that she made. The strange thing was this was during the Jim Crow south, in the back woods of Alabama. Women of all races would find their way to my great great grandmother to get her cream. Unfortunately, the recipe wasn't handed down because every generation after didn't want to go into the skin care business.

As fate would have it something always happens to draw us in. So for four generations my great great grandmothers descendants would all own businesses that had something to do with the beauty or skin care industry. In my case it was my Dad that drew me in. He was a diabetic, and suffered from very dry, cracked damaged skin that wouldn't heal.

Dad always loved things that smelled good. This would be great except the skin medicine from the hospital smelled awful, and he wouldn't use it. So I did research on the right ingredients that would be best for his skin, and of course found the best scents literally on earth.

My Dad broke his hip and was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, he never left. While he was there the nurses fell in love with the lotion, and they became my first customers. I tried to deliver the lotion to them in his room after he died like they asked, but I just couldn't. To them it was just a room, to me it was my Dad's room. It was too hard, and I never returned. However, it was those nurses that let me know I had a product that people would fall in love with.

That was 9 years ago. Up until 3 years ago I sold my creations at my local farmers market, and craft fairs. Then I discovered ETSY---yaaay!!!! I'm going into my fourth year here on Etsy, and it's been wonderful. I really want to take a moment here to thank all of my customers here on Etsy for giving Skin Like Butter a try, coming back for more, and leaving wonderful reviews.

You may notice the ocean in all of the pictures and wonder what in the world that has to do with body care. Well the beach, the ocean, the shore it has a certain energy to it. It makes you feel so good all the way down to you soul. That feeling is what I try to put in a bottle. There isn't smellovision yet, but I put a video here that pretty much captures that feeling that I'm putting in the bottles.

I don't know what my great, great grandmother put in that cream that made women of all races come find her in the back woods of Alabama. However, I guess making skin happy is in my genes.

All of the perfume sample sets are provided with free shipping so that you only have to pay for the samples themselves.

Thank you for your order in advance. Generally my goal is to process orders within 3 to 5 working days on average. However, some times are busier than others to always check here for an accurate updated processing time.

My currant production finishing schedule is 5 working days starting from The working days do not include Saturday and Sunday.

There are some items that I can make much faster than others. Usually these items take between 2 and 3 working days to make and mail.
~Roll on Perfume
~Body Oil
~Bath Salts
~Body Spray

These items that take longer will usually take the full 5 working days to complete.
~Body Lotion
~Body Wash
~Body Scrub

I wish I could be super fast like Amazon Prime ,but I would rather make it fresh and perfect for you instead. Sometimes that takes a little longer, and I sincerely hope it's worth the wait :)
