Organic Body Butter – Top to Toe
£5.00 – £28.00
Top to Toe is an all round skin butter which is suitable for face, body and lips. It has anti ageing, anti-viral and protective properties. In March 2013 it picked up the award for the best all round body butter from Biteable Beauty. Truly a multi-purpose must have, it smells divine too as it contains real vanilla.
“A deeply nurturing and moisturising product.”
Can I really use this from Top To Toe?
Yes! It can literally be used anywhere on the body or face with total safety. It has no essential oils, so is safe for using around the eye area. It great for body protection; we have customers who are cyclists and runners, who wouldn’t go for a long ride or run without using this first to prevent chaffing in those awkward areas! Others use it after having a tattoo to promote healing as it has antiviral, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. We have also had reports of it being used as barrier balm for hay fever sufferers. Just apply a thin layer inside nostrils, which physically traps the pollen and prevents it from irritating the nose. Pregnant mums enjoy this too, as it is great for moisturising that bump. Some customers use it as an after-sun moisturiser as well. If you want to go on holiday and travel light, apart from your sun cream, you could just pack this little helper!
How does Top To Toe balm work?
Top To Toe is a balm-type body butter, but because of the oils used to make it, it is non greasy. As well as being jam packed with beautiful nourishing oils, Top To Toe also contains alpine rose extract. This plant grows on alpine hillsides up to 3,200 m where it adapts to temperatures well below zero. Alpine rose extract helps repair the skin’s barrier, which can be compromised through ageing and environmental factors such as UV and humidity changes. Reduced barrier function leads to dry and sensitive skin. When tested on human epidermal stem cells, alpine rose was found to increase the vitality of skin stem cells. This improves epidermal regeneration and thus the quality of the skin barrier. In addition to helping to restore the skin’s resilience, alpine rose also protects against skin protein oxidation (photo-ageing) and reduces cold sore occurrence by preventing the virus which causes cold sores from adhering to the skin. What an incredible plant!
How should I use Top To Toe?
One of only a few anti-ageing body butters available; we believe your body needs pampering as much as your face. This is so easy and lovely to use, there is no excuse for not using body moisturising as part of your daily routine! Simply apply to any area of the body or face as required. As with all our products, this lovely balm is concentrated so you will only need to use a small amount so try applying just a small amount first and massaging in. Top To Toe is soothing, calming and wonderfully moisturising with a beautiful vanilla scent from organic vanilla pods. (Please note due to the presence of real vanilla pods you may find the odd chocolate brown ‘speck’ in the balm despite us using the finest possible organic filters. It is not necessary to remove these flecks of vanilla seeds).

“A lovely, soft, vanilla-infused balm that you really can use all over to soothe and calm.”
“Excellent product all over that finally gave relief to very dry skin on my legs!”
“I also use it on my eyelids, which are prone to eczema. I have recently tried it as a barrier to pollen (as they suggest) and it works!”
“I also used it to remove make up and found it gentle and leaves my face both cleansed and moisturised too.”
“The product is really effective, my feet were considerably softened and smoothed after use, and when applying to other areas I found only a small amount was needed. The fragrance is simply divine…”
Apply to any area of the body or face as frequently desired.
