Peace, I'm Buttafly Jonez. I want y’all to know about the love and dedication that goes into each and every single jar and container of Buttafly Jonez Body and Hair products. I began creating body butter to start in 2006. I used to go to places like Bath and Body Works all the time and realized that my skin was becoming irritated by all the chemicals that they put into their sprays and lotions. My skin never healed, the dry skin was just covered up. I began to seek natural products and found that I was breaking my bank account just to have healthier skin, and all it really was.. was "thick lotion" and not real body BUTTER. I began going to farmer's markets and different fairs and found butters that were just "ok" and decided to start making my own. 6 formulas and 4 years later.. I have the purrrfect, paraben free (preservative) Phalate free (hormone) all natural body butter using no mineral oils or petroleum jellies (which just sit on top of your skin and never gets absorbed and is a bi product of crude oil.. eeewww) and are Animal Friendly.
I use it absolutely everyday... and my skin no longer gets ashy, or dry patches if I do not apply it. Buttafly Jonez Co. body products have actually healed mine, and my customers, family, and friends’ skin from irritations, and has made a natural glow on our skin. God gave me the formula to Buttafly Jonez Body products. He is the inspiration to my life and to my business. I feel like God wants everyone to have healthy skin, nails, and hair. Main Ingredients that I use in my products are Coco, Shea, Mango, Apricot Kernel, Coconut butters and OIive oils. These are VERY expensive and high quality products. Luckily, this is my hobby, so my goal is to spread more love and healing than gain of profit on my products.
Everyday life experiences are the inspirations for my products. For example, friends and family will tell me what they want and I will create it. My good girlfriend Dionne, who is also an authorized seller of the products wanted some butter for her face, so I created a successful face line for sufferers of Acne and for gentle faces. Another time, Dionne and I met Holladay at Native Foods Café in Westwood. We were in the middle of handling business and Dionne called Holladay over to smell some Buttafly Jonez Body Butter. Holladay said that it smelled really good and went on to describe her signature fragrances that she likes to blend. The blend of Patchouli, Coconut and Lime sounded awesome so I asked her if I can create a similar scent and call it “Holladay”. She agreed and it is the featured fragrance for September on our website www.buttaflyjonez.com. I also make Dred Jewelz for our wonderful Dread Lock wearers out there.
By the way, Dionne enjoyed the Oklahoma Bacon Cheeseburger with a side of steamed organic Kale. I had the Portobello and Sausage Burger with Cheddar and a side of Native Fries. That was Dionne’s first night there, and man did she enjoy it. She’s not a Vegan and was absolutely raving about the Native Foods Café. Dionne ended up ordering dessert and an extra dish to take home in our cute little Native Foods tote bags. What a wonderful night that was. Thanks for reading.
