What Ingredients Are Used in Cait + Co Body Creams?

Moisturizing is a must for nurturing your skin, especially after an intensive care session. While beauty routines, including long soaks and exfoliating, can be relaxing and help you feel your best, the processes can often leave the skin dry and begging for moisture. Enter: Cait + Co Body Creams

Featuring a medley of enticing scents and just the right moisturizing ingredients, body creams are the perfect addition to your daily routine. We’re breaking down all the ingredients in Cait + Co’s Body Creams below so you can shop for your next body cream confidently!  

Body Cream Ingredient Breakdown

At Cait + Co, we thrive on keeping our product ingredients high-quality and safe for use. We wouldn’t want anything in the products that we wouldn’t lather ourselves in – which we do…a lot (sorry, not sorry!). 

We know better than anyone that lotions are meant to help repair and strengthen skin – not harm it. That’s why you’ll only find these safe ingredients in our nourishing body creams. 


This ingredient is the foundation for our product, as our body creams are built to moisturize your skin above all else. Out of all the other ingredients found in our body creams, water will always be a top component. 

Butyrospermum Parkii Fruit

Commonly referred to as shea butter, this do-it-all skincare staple boasts moisturizing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-aging properties. Plus, it absorbs into your skin easily without clogging your pores or giving your skin an oily feeling. Talk about incredible added bonuses!

Emulsifying Wax NF

This vegan ingredient is used to help develop that smooth lotion consistency you know and love. Emulsifying wax is also necessary to keep the lotion bound so that it does not separate. 

Helianthus Annuus Seed Oil

Also known as sunflower oil, this ingredient aids in the emollient process. Rich in vitamin E and fatty acids, sunflower oil is a game-changer when it comes to locking in moisture. Even better? It won’t clog your pores. 

Olea Europaea (Olive) Oil

Protecting against dry skin, sun damage and aging –  few oils are as helpful (or delicious) as olive oil!  And, when combined with the other ingredients in these body creams, olive oil helps to boost your skin’s resilience. 

Cetyl Alcohol

A double threat, cetyl oil is used both as a softening ingredient and a thickener for the lotion itself. Similar to other ingredients mentioned, it also helps with the emollient process, ensuring our body creams are ultra-rich in texture!

Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil

Avocado oil and avocados, in general, are rich in vitamins and super-hydrating, which means it works well for a body cream. Paired with other oils in our body creams, you can walk around confidently knowing that your skin is radiant and protected. 


To fully understand how glycerin works, you may need to bust out that lab coat from middle school chemistry. In case you misplace yours, we’ll break it down as simply as possible: Glycerin acts as a humectant, which means it can draw water from around us to attract, draw, and ultimately lock moisture to our skin. The result? Smooth, soft, and hydrated skin. 


Tocopherol (AKA vitamin E) helps to regulate our body inside and out by acting as an antioxidant and protecting our cells from damage (including from the sun!). 

Fragrance & Essential Oils

Cait + Co prides itself on only using the purest and highest-quality essential oils and fragrances to boost scent and aromatherapy in our products. The individual scents will depend on the product line you’re purchasing. 


Truly the unsung hero of skin-care, gluconolactone is a multi-threat with major perks like sloughing away dead skin cells and helping to even out your skin’s texture and appearance. Both gentle and powerful, this ingredient is perfect for rounding out our body creams.
