Top 10: Best Body Butters Available in India with Reviews and Price List
This is one of the posts that I am really excited to write about. I love body butters and am a great hoarder of body moisturisers and lotions. I initially started with The Body Shop body butters and got hooked to it and then went on to try different brands. I have tried various fragrances: chocolate, fruity, nutty, minty, etc. When I started writing, I initially found it difficult to shortlist just 10 best body butters in India as there are so many butters I love. I finally narrowed down and here is the list of top body butters that you need to try this winter. In this list, you will find a mix of moisturizing body butters for every budget, fragrance, skin type, natural, ayurvedic, etc.
I have normal skin which becomes extremely dry here in Bangalore during cold weather. And add to that, I work in an A/C environment all day which leads to dry, patchy skin. So I prefer body butters over body lotions as they are more intensely hydrating and nourishing. Plus, their fragrance typically lasts longer than body lotions.
List of Best Body Butters in India:
Undoubtedly TBS has the best body butters in the Indian market and their strawberry variant is the most popular one. It has a delightful sweet strawberry smell and the fragrance lingers on for a long time. It is non-greasy, quickly absorbed and is meant for normal to dry skin. Extra dry skin people can try their Cocoa Body Butter variant. VNA has reviews on other fragrances as well so do check that out. Price in India: Rs.1095 for 200ml.
The Nature’s Co Chocolate Mint Body Butter:
I have recently started trying The Nature’s Co body butters and I am really impressed. This one has has a really yummy chocolate fragrance with a hint of refreshing mint reminding me of delicious ice creams. It is very emollient and buttery in texture and glides easily on skin leaving it baby soft and smooth. Sensitive noses might feel the TBS Cocoa butter scent is too strong, those can give this a try as here the chocolate fragrance is more subtle without being overpowering. Fruity fragrance lovers can try their Mixed Berry body butter. Price in India: Rs.1295 for 200ml.
Fabindia Rose and Almond Body Butter:
Possibly, one of the most affordable, pocket-friendly body butters in India. Nevertheless, its a wonderful product with an amazing scent of wild roses. Its very light and non-greasy and unlike other body butters, the consistency is very thin and so can be used even in summers. Price in India: Rs.295 for 100ml.

It also helps to lighten stretch marks with regular usage. Price in India: Rs.1195 for 250g.

This is a delight for fruity fragrance lovers. With the juicy and fruity blend of watermelon and pink grapefruit, you will be smelling fresh all day long with this body butter from Grace Cole. It gets absorbed quickly, hydrating the skin very well without leaving any oily residue. Though it doesn’t provide deep moisturization as TBS body butters. Suitable for normal skin or summers.

Fruttini Ginger PassionFruit Body Butter:
If you love warm spicy scents, then you would definitely like this body butter which has a whiff of ginger with fruity mix. Its not too strong or overpowering. The texture is medium consistency suitable for normal to dry skin. Fruttini is a German brand which has recently ventured into the Indian market and they have so many different variants like cranberry choc, cherry vanilla, milky orange, raspberry cream, etc. And the quantity is huge as it comes in a 500ml tub.

Apart from this, some other decent body butters I have tried are Auravedic Pure Lightening Whipped Body Butter, TVAM Rose Honey & Litchi Body Butter, Vedic Line Choco Vanilla Body Butter, Nyah Peach Grapes & Cherry Blossom Natural Body Butter, TBC By Nature Revitalising Cucumber Body Butter. Currently I am using Vert Pomegranate Almond Whipped Shea Body Butter and next on my wishlist are Nation Orange Blossom Body Butter and Votre Nourishing Gold Body Butter.
