If you know me, I cannot live without body butter. When we travelled in Sicily, I used up my body shop body butter. I couldn’t find it anywhere. What a disaster! Well, I had to get something. That’s how I came across the Qualikos BioQ body butter.
It’s quite hard to find information about this company, especially when I don’t speak Italian at all. Thanks to Google translate! Here is what I found out. Qualikos is an Italian company that manufactures ecofriendly beauty products, including personal care, body care, hair care, bath and shower products.
BioQ is their certified organic line of products. Only natural ingredients from organic farming are used. All products are free of PEG , parabens, petrolatum, SLS paraffin, SLES, silicons and artificial colours.
What they say about the product:

If you have dry skin, this is a very good winter body butter. It absorbs well by the skin. Doesn’t take long. I used in warm season too after I came back to Australia. It’s slightly on the heavy side if you use it in the summer.
Super nourishing for the skin! It leaves your skin smooth and baby like feeling. Great one! Since I have dry skin, I really love it. Unfortunately, I can’t buy it from Australia or online. Very hard to find! If you are in Europe, give it a try. Will be perfect for the winter.
