Butter me up

Try to resist this uniquely blended all-over moisturizer that screams ‘comfort food.’ Like whipped cream, the weightless, shea butter-based creme melts in on contact, leaving skin polished, glistening and protected.

Apply generously as an all-over body moisturizer, or foot or cuticle treatment. On damp hair, apply for 5-30 minutes as a pre-shampoo, deep conditioning treatment.


Hidden multitasking talent: in addition to a hair treatment, the body butter doubles as a diaper rash cream, a grooming aid and an element shield for skiing or outdoor summer pursuits.

  • wonderful!

    Shiree May 26, 2019

    This cream has an amazing whipped texture, is super moisturizing, and the scent is subtlety gorgeous and lingers in a perfect way.

  • Love the scent

    Kelly G. May 22, 2019

    This a very excellent whipped cream. I’ve used this cream on my arms and legs during the winter months. It has definitely done its job: with a wonderful scent to boot. I would recommend.

  • Pleasurable

    Adina C. March 11, 2019

    I love everything about this product. The fluffness and whipped texture and how it emulsifies on my skin. For a person like me that suffers from combination it work well especially after a hot sweaty 105 degree yoga class. RICA gets the MVP for my skin.

  • Ok but too expensive for what you get.

    Sarah S. February 11, 2019

    Not all the ingredients are organic so the price doesn’t match to me. The lotion is nice and whipped but leaves a thick almost sticky feel on the body. Great for feet though. I think the negative side of this butter is the piece for what’s inside. If all the ingredients were organic I can justify paying for it again. Probably not going to repurchase.

  • Great

    Pearlene M. January 21, 2019

    Love this product. Light weight and it smells wonderful.

  • Best gift for anyone/everyone!

    Grace B. January 08, 2019

    I bought a few for xmas gifts, such a hit I had to buy myself one!

  • This stuff is awesome

    Lee B. December 31, 2018

    It’s fluffy, smells like you are at the beach, great aromatherapy for Winter time. As far as it being thick to apply…I get it in my hands and rub it between my hands before applying. It loosens up like an oil, then. It is thick but I apply it right out of the shower while I dry hair or put make up on. It always absorbs then. I put a little in My hair after I dry it, just to the ends. My hair feels healthyI’ve never experienced the white cast it gives off I guess because my skin has always been dry when I apply it. Try it and you’ll love it! My skin is the softest it’s ever been! I’m Giving this as gifts. Oh, and let me mention I have extra sensitive skin.

  • Really rich

    Brooke W. December 16, 2018

    I love this body butter in the winter when my skin is so dry.

  • A pleasure to use

    Milicent A. December 12, 2018

    I really enjoy the light, fluffy texture of this body butter. It makes moisturizing after bath time a really enjoyable ritual.

  • Lovely smell, could absorb a little better

    Ana L. September 22, 2018

    RICA body butter has a lovely citrus smell that isn’t overwhelming. It is easy to apply because of its whipped texture. My only complaint is that I wish that it absorbed a little better, but overall, I think it’s a good product for the price.

  • Small container, odd texture

    Cassie H. September 12, 2018

    This universal cream works better in my hair than on my skin. It’s really hard to spread as a moisturizer. In contrast it keeps frizz and flyaways in place when my hair is pulled back. Too expensive for the container size and quality

  • Great smell, but leaves a white cast

    Lisa R. May 25, 2018

    This product smells and feels great, but does take some work to apply and leaves a white cast if not fully rubbed in.

  • a little too greasy and tropical smelling

    Barbara W. February 16, 2018

    I was looking for a very hydrating body cream- this is very light and fluffy almost like whipped cream- I find it to be a bit greasy and it smells like a Pina colada- I don’t want to smell like a tropical drink. I now use it as foot cream and my feel look great!

    • From Follain:

      Hi Barbara, this does have a wonderful citrus scent- so sorry it wasn’t for you! I would recommend the Farmaesthetics Nourishing Lavender Milk for a traditional body cream feel.

  • Very moisturizing but a bit chunky and hard to spread

    Alexandria G. February 14, 2018

    Wonderful smell and texture–while I’m personally looking for something that is easier to apply and doesn’t feel as greasy when applied, it is deeply moisturizing. Also personally looking for non-plastic packaging, but otherwise loved the quality of the ingredients.

  • Very Buttery

    Brooke W. January 16, 2018

    This body butter is unbelievable. It is just the thing for really dry, wintery skin. I can put it on after a tub at night and my skin is still feeling soft 24 hours later.

  • Fluffy and moisturizing

    Kennette B. January 11, 2018

    The body butter is super fluffy when scooped out and then absorbs into skin and almost has a light oil feel. I like it a lot, but have run through the jar really quickly. The smell is really light and nice. Worth a try!

  • Combat winter dryness

    April H. December 27, 2017

    If you want your arms and legs to feel like baby skin, this is the product for you.

  • Was a fan...

    Caitlin November 20, 2017

    I loved the creamy consistency and fresh finish. I was on my second tub which I kept in my bathroom under the window. I was disappointed to find the cream completely melted one warm day. I tried to revive it by mixing and refrigerating but eventually had to throw it out. I was so disappointed because I loved this product but it was a waste of a pricey treat for myself…

    • From Follain:

      Hi Caitlin, so sorry this melted! This product is made up of solidified oils, so it will melt on a warm day. Store this in a cool, dry place to keep it in tact!

  • Go-to Gift

    Amanda S. October 09, 2017

    This is one of my go-to gifts (especially over the holidays). It is so incredibly moisturizing and smells so fresh and clean. Everyone that I gift it to always loves it too!

  • divine

    Jacqueline A. October 01, 2017

    first of all, you would expect a large tub of this to be heavy to pick up. i was shocked to discover that the container is almost weightless. it’s amazing. it is the most luxuriously whipped body butter i’ve ever felt. and it is suuuuuuper hydrating. it definitely takes a while to absorb and feels a moderately greasy but that’s what i’m looking for with a body butter. i just wait a little while before putting clothes on to let it absorb. i have extremely dry skin and i apply this after body oil and it soothes my itchy dry legs. body oil alone doesn’t do the trick. this HYDRATES.

  • The best of the best!

    Jennifer A. October 01, 2017

    This Body Butter came highly recommended by my daughter-in-law, who is allergic to most preservatives, so she is always on the look out for a good quality, natural product. She loves the Rica Body Butter. So I went ahead and ordered one for myself. I have never used a better body cream. I like the simple packaging, which tells me that the money I have spent has gone into the product itself. I use very little as it goes a long way. The jar is large and yet so light I am able to travel with it in my booked luggage – and I don’t go anywhere without it! The whipped texture very easily softens into a wonderful creamy oil, which is instantly absorbed into my skin – leaving my arms and legs soft and smooth. I am delighted to have at last found a product which will forever be on my bathroom vanity.


    Chris H. September 28, 2017

    This body butter is so creamy and your skin looks shiny (but not too shiny) and radiant. It also stays for a long time which many creams do not.

    Also, the 3 oz lasts a long time!

  • Very moisturizing

    Sara N. September 28, 2017

    This is incredibly moisturizing. However, I found it a bit difficult to apply as it does not spread super easily. It also takes a little while to sink in. That being said, it is such a fun texture, and it smells amazing.

  • Michelle B. September 28, 2017
  • luxurious!

    Jasmina A. September 28, 2017

    Goes on creamy and leaves your skin feeling moisturized all day. A little oily initially but otherwise great!

  • I LOVE This Product!!!

    Kim July 28, 2016

    I love the weightless consistency of this luxurious and uber moisturizing lotion! It melts into your skin, hydrating, and glistening sun drenched skin! The whipped butter makes the texture light and airy. I will make this a staple from now on! The sales assistant told me I would love it, but I didn’t realize how wonderful the product was until I used it this morning.

  • Luxurious!

    Natalie July 21, 2015

    I keep a tub of RICA on my nightstand — it’s the best and most luxurious treat after a long day. I use it all over, but especially on my elbows, feet, and hands.

  • Disappointed

    Brittany P. May 22, 2015

    I like the consistency of this product and the scent. It is heavy and has a greasy feeling and also it has fragrance in it. I was surprised to find a dirty ingredient in this butter, the scent is not worth the toxins. Sorry : (

  • The best

    Sara March 09, 2015

    Very moisturizing. The whipped texture is unparalleled. But greasy, so give it a little while to sink in.

  • Winter Saver

    Mary E. February 21, 2015

    I started using this butter mostly on my hands this winter and they are in much better shape this year than in more mild previous winters. Putting it directly on the more dry areas and then combining it with a more fluid hand cream works well.

  • Like cotton candy for your bod

    Caroline February 21, 2015

    I love this stuff. It somehow manages to be rich and ultra-light. It also smells deliciously light. A container lives by my bedside, mmm.

  • amazing

    Rachel February 20, 2015

    My hands haven’t been chapped all winter (which is amazing in New England) because of this lotion. Like some of the other reviewers have said, it’s a little greasy so I find it perfect right before bed. The smell is amazing, the texture is great, and it’s just so incredibly effective. An added bonus is that you only need a tiny bit so it lasts a really long time – the price is completely worth it. 🙂

  • Very Moisturizing!

    Anna D. February 20, 2015

    This whipped body butter is so light you’d never think it would work as well as it does. It’s perfect for the all seasons but especially the winter when it’s extra dry. I put it on immediately after the shower and let it soak in for as long as I can.

  • Great formula

    Charlotte February 20, 2015

    The best part about the body butter is the whipped consistency! It delivers an insane amount of shea butter soothing your skin but it’s light as air. The smell is also intoxicating, and I find it perfect for anytime of the day. I keep this by my bed as a last step on my hands before sleep, which keeps them really hydrated overnight (on my elbows and heels, too!) The only downside is that is does leave a greasy film on your skin, so best not to use it right away before other activities.

  • One of the best

    Judy February 20, 2015

    This body cream is like no other I’ve ever used. The texture is like whipped butter, so it stays on your skin while you rub it in. Absorbs nicely and has a lovely light fragrance. It’s so effective that just a little goes a long way.

  • Miracle Cure

    Lori W. January 09, 2015

    I purchased this product in Nantucket this past summer . I loved the whipped texture. When I began using it I wasn’t so sure about it because even though it feels so light and airy it was a little greasy when I applied it. However, I had recently undergone radiation treatments and my skin was badly damaged. Almost immediately after using this, my skin started to heal rapidly. It was already beginning to heal so maybe this was a coincidence but I don’t think so because the progression of healing really sped up. So, I ended up loving this product. If you have dry skin you will love it, too. It does absorbs fairly quickly. Also, the light scent of orange blossoms is divine.
