The natural dry-skin saviors that work on their own, layered, during pregnancy—and every day after.
Written By NATALIA GARDUÑO
When philanthropist and entrepreneur Hope Smith couldn't find a natural baby-safe cream that could effectively ward off stretch marks, she decided to create her own. Thus, MUTHA was born. Concocting the original formulation for the line's cult Body Butter in her home kitchen, Smith sent her first samples to A-list moms and friends, including VIOLET GREY founder Cassandra Grey, who became enamored by the butter's heavenly texture and skin-softening effects. Fast forward two years and MUTHA officially launched its two plant-powered products—the Body Butter and Body Oil—for a serious boost of hydration before and during pregnancy and beyond. (Of course, it’s for men too. Hope’s husband is a big fan.)
Layered together or used alone, the duo delivers an unparalleled dose of nourishing (not greasy) moisture with organic ingredients, including shea, cocoa, and mango butters, botanical seed extracts, vitamins, and fatty acids. Upon application, the formulas put you on an immediate path to noticeably supple skin, and continue to promote all-around smoothness with long-term use.
"I can honestly say that my skin looks plumper and healthier now than it did before. With those results, why would I ever stop using them?"
—Jamie Greenberg, Makeup Artist
"I’m always looking for yummy body butters that aren’t too greasy, absorb well, smell wonderful, and are made with super-good ingredients. This is exactly that, and I’m so into it."
—Katey Denno, Makeup Artist
"The major ingredient in MUTHA Body Oil is rosehip, which is packed with vitamin C—so good for the skin! It also has an energizing fragrance that I love."
—Michael Anthony, Makeup Artist
As with every product on VIOLET GREY, both the MUTHA Body Butter and Oil reached our shelves once a minimum of 70 percent of testers deemed them game-changing. At that time, we added the line to our skin care edit with the Violet Code's official stamp of approval.
The VIOLET CODE is a process and set of standards by which VIOLET GREY’s committee of beauty industry experts and influencers separate hero products from the tens of thousands of options available to you on the market. The result is a curation that is truly the best in beauty from those who know best.
