YUME body butters | handmade with love.

Hello! I’m Samyukta, the face behind all things that reside under the umbrella of YUME.

I’m a maker of things, and just adore the art of using my hands to create clean, simple, and cruelty-free items that are useful in our day to day lives.

Moving a few steps closer to leading a minimal-waste lifestyle, I began to make natural, multi-purpose body butters infused with therapeutic essential oils. They feel divine! I know my body deserves to be free from all the toxic chemicals found in commercial skincare products, and so does yours! It really feels so nice to be kind to our skin and to feed it the same way we would feed our stomach – and that is with love, care, and respect.

Since my family, friends and I love these body butters so much, I wanted to make them accessible to you too! All the creams are vegan, organic, handmade, and fair trade.

 

DREAMY. SENSUAL. CLEAR. ALIVE. The butters are named based on the feelings / moods that they evoke.

INGREDIENTS + CATALOGUE

 

WHAT FORMS THE BASE?

Cacao butter
Top quality, non-deodorised cacao butter from Mason & Co – a core ingredient that seals in moisture and helps maintain skin elasticity and tone.

Mango butter
An odourless butter (similar in texture to cacao butter), extracted from mango seeds. A natural moisturizer, sunscreen, and a storehouse of vitamins.

Sweet almond oil
An unrefined oil packed with nutrients, including vitamin E and retinoids. Topical use of almond oil on skin is an age-old remedy for dry skin and acne.

Coconut oil
A cold-pressed, virgin oil that has traditionally been used as a healing moisturizer for centuries. Naturally antiseptic and protective.

Essential oil blends
Essential oils are pure, highly concentrated, pressed/distilled extracts from medicinal plants. These oils are very potent in that even 1-2 drops yield ample benefits, and with fragrances that can be deeply healing. Combinations of different essential oils (aka blends) are often used in aromatherapy and skincare.

USAGE + STORAGE

1. The butters can be used on any part of the body. They double up as a lip balm, or as a scrub (when mixed with sugar), or even as a de-frizzing hair tamer. However do note that very little is needed – a small bit goes a long way.
2. These body butters can be used daily, especially if you have dry skin. The best way to make sure you’re sealing in moisture is to apply it right after showering.
3. The CLEAR blend uses only non-comedogenic base ingredients, which means that they are very light and easy on your pores. Therefore this is the safest butter to use on your face if you have acne-prone skin. If your skin is not prone to acne, any of the butters can be used on the face.
4. Since the butters do not contain any preservatives or additives, the recommended shelf life is 6 months. However, if you wish to store it for several months longer, store it in the refrigerator.
5. At all times, the butters are meant to be kept away from direct sunlight or humid environments, or else they might become too soft and lose their whipped texture. So if the room temperature exceeds 25C, it’s recommended that you store it in the fridge.

PRECAUTIONS

1. While the butters are not inedible, it would be advisable to keep them out of reach of children or pets.
2. Essential oils have very potent healing properties, but can at times cause minor allergic reactions in some people. For this reason, it is recommended that the first time you apply the butters, test on a small patch of skin just to be sure.
