Keep Buzzin' Body Products

Not only does this hand cream and foot cream skin care line keep your skin smooth and buttery, but all of the ingredients are 100 percent natural. The Keep Buzzin' Body Products are never tested on animals and don't contain any of the following — petrolatum, lanolin, phthalates, sodium laureth, oxy benzone or carmine. There is also no added color in this skin care line. The one preservative that is used is propanediol zemea, which is all plant-based and eco-certified.

Immerse yourself in the honey-almond hand cream or the peppermint foot cream for silky, smooth skin.
