10 Types of Body Butter

Aloe Vera

Where do we start with aloe vera, the "miracle plant"? The gel inside the aloe vera plant is an antioxidant that can soothe sunburn, reduce skin inflammation, aid circulation, repair skin tissue and cleanse the digestive system -- and it also contains an astounding 20 minerals, 12 vitamins and 18 amino acids. It's not too shabby as a moisturizer, either.
