The body butter is the best skin product I have ever tried
The Body Butter is the best skin product I have ever tried, I love it. It was an instant cure to my dry skin this summer, and it is so good I don’t even have to use it every day.

Three Gems is a Nelson-based organic skincare brand with a strong stance on reducing the number of harmful components ending up in our bodies and the environment. Read on to learn some of the reasons why using natural skincare is the best way to look after your skin.

The main difference between body butter and lotion is the texture! Lotions are far thinner than butter because they have far higher water content. With the right ingredients, both are great for your skin. We prefer body butter because it’s not diluted; the product you are paying for will last longer!

Your standard moisturising lotion is less likely to contain organic ingredients than natural body butter NZ. Most popular moisturiser brands use water and some artificial ingredients in their products. These initially give you the feeling of hydration, but your skin will not be able to absorb the synthetic components. Therefore, you may not enjoy any long-lasting benefits.

Many of these commercial brands use petroleum-based ingredients because they are cheaper. Made using fossil fuels and transformed into petrochemicals, the process of manufacturing petroleum releases polluting toxins into the earth’s atmosphere, including carbon dioxide. CO2 is one of the most dangerous greenhouse gasses, causing holes in the ozone layer.

Not only does the making of petroleum jelly cause massive damage to the environment, but it’s also not actually good for your skin. It clogs pores and increases the risk of infection to your skin if it has any scratches or cuts.

We doubt anyone would want to use skincare products that use these artificial ingredients if they knew the damage they were causing! Natural skincare is more effective, kinder to ecosystems, and better for your skin.

It is also better for the environment to buy natural products manufactured locally. Supporting local reduces courier costs that otherwise make a massive carbon footprint. That’s why Three Gems buys all our ingredients from sustainable New Zealand suppliers. Buy locally-made natural body butter, NZ!

Only the best organic ingredients go in our natural body butter NZ. It contains the pure goodness of shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter, and natural Vitamin E. No water, no fillers, no artificial chemicals go near our creations!

There are three varieties to choose from:

Aloe vera

Containing all the soothing and healing goodness that the organic aloe vera plant has to offer. It is ideal for sensitive skin or anyone who might have spent a bit too much time in the sun! This variety is unscented.


Cover your body in the smell of spring with our jasmine-scented body butter. With natural jasmine essential oil and jasmine absolute, enjoy the benefits of this antidepressant and antiseptic magic maker!


Our rose body butter contains rose essential oil and rose absolute. Smelling and applying rose oil to your skin will decrease anxiety and any depressive symptoms, ease pain and provide relief from menstrual discomfort.

Three Gems was born from a practice of sharing good quality creations with the community. We carry on this ethos by being transparent about how we make these products, treating all our customers as close friends.

The ingredients we put in our body butter are all natural and all good for you!

Shea Butter

With a natural SPF of around 6, shea butter offers light sun protection. It also supports collagen production and reduces inflammation with its natural containment of vitamins A, E, and F, smoothing your skin.

Coconut Oil

Antifungal, antibacterial, and rich in fatty acids, we’re sure you already know how special coconut oil is. The coconut oil we use is from Sri Lanka. With its healing properties and a natural SPF of around 4, it protects your skin from the sun and potential pathogens.

Cocoa Butter

We source our cocoa butter from the fruits of cacao trees in Peru. Believed to be the food of the gods by ancient Inca, cacao provides a range of health benefits. In cocoa butter form, it is full of antioxidants and is a superb moisturiser. Applying this will not only make your skin feel scrumptious but will also help protect you from free radicals that could harm your cells.

We love using this in our body butter NZ because its melting point is about the same as human body temperature - it literally melts into your skin. Yum!

Vitamin E

The Vitamin E in our body butter adds antioxidant properties to the mix, nourishing your lips and protecting them from harmful molecules that could damage your DNA over time. We add this natural ingredient so that your body butter has a long shelf life! It’s also in our natural lip balm - protecting your body all over.

How to use our natural body butter

Store in a cool, dry place. Take a small amount and apply it directly onto your skin. You don’t need much, and you might find that a light touch is best in the warm months! We recommend that you apply it straight after a shower when your skin is nice, clean, soft, and still slightly damp.

    I ordered the Rose Body Butter. Not for my whole body, but for my feet – I use a magnesium oil every night on my feet, and it’s a bit drying on my skin. Using this body butter is a luxurious (but affordable!) treat. It leaves my feet soft, and it smells divine. I do now also use it on my legs at night and they feel great. The softness lasts for ages after one use! Love that this product contains no water or fillers etc, and that it comes in a quality glass jar.

      Thank you for your lovely feedback Dionne. We are very pleased that you are finding our body butter so effective.

    I got the Jasmine Body Butter to try. It’s lovely on the skin and smells wonderful.

    My Mum gets the Aloe Vera Body Butter for her psoriasis. It’s both nicer and more effective then the stuff from the doctor.
