Why is that important?
Stepping up, holding, scratching, beaking, playing... Our birds interact with our bands & body all day. Whatever is on your skin ends up in their feathers & in their beaks, which they, inevitably, ingest. Standard lotions have petroleums, synthetic emollients, unnecessary colourants & toxic synthetic fragrances, don't fit the bird-friendly bill!
Simply being natural isn't enough. Oils like avocado, cherry, apricot kernel, castor oils & cocoa butter are all standards in natural products, but toxic to our fids.
FeatherWhipped to the rescue! I've created a recipe that's soooooo yummy for your skin.
Let's look at some of the ingredients:
Shea Butter- I only use Organic Grade A 100% Pure Unrefined, raw Shea butter. The highest quality on the market, this is food grade Shea butter that is high in vitamins A, E, F and K. Fights inflammation, triterpenes protect collagen & has a natural SPF.
Kokum Butter - High in essential fatty acids & promotes skin regeneration. Excellent vitamin E content for anti-oxidant effects.
Perilla Seed Oil - rich in omega-3, it soothes, repairs & provides powerful antioxidant & anti-inflammatory protection. Rosmarinic acid in perilla seed oil aids in calming atopic dermatitis & helps reduce clogged pores.
Jojoba Oil - A humectant with anti-bacterial properties; it's antioxidant content fights skin aging & decrease inflammation.
Marshmallow - It's magical mucilage creates a protective layer
Calendula - antimicrobial, anti-inflammatory& astringent that promotes cell regeneration
Oatstraw - Soothing & eases itchiness.
Chamomile - An anti-inflammatory that sooths irritation & encourages skin repair.
Rose petals & Rose hips - A humectant & toner that reduces the appearance of fine lines; vitamin C repairs oxidative damage.
Lavender - relieves tension, anti-fungal properties, gentle antiseptic.
This is a pure butter, not a whipped lotion with water - that way we can avoid questionable preservatives. Please make sure your fingers are dry & clean when dipping in!
Fragrance-free, though i can add some essential oil in an 8oz jar on request. Message me!
Eco friendly packaging!
Please recycle or upcycle the jars. Your order is packaged with recyclable materials and shipped in a crush-proof box.

I ordered the 2oz, and while it's definitely covered a few uses after showers, but I'll be ordering the larger size next time! This feels lovely and absorbs much quicker than coconut oil. There's a subtle scent, but it is not overpowering, and I have very sensitive skin, so it is great to find a body butter that does not make a sore situation worse. Perfect for anybody with dry skin areas, especially in colder temperatures!
