What is Adipocere? It is also referred to as corpse wax, grave wax or mortuary wax and is a wax-like organic substance formed by the anaerobic bacterial hydrolysis of fat in tissue, such as body fat in corpses.
In its formation, putrefaction is replaced by a permanent firm cast of fatty tissues, internal organs, and the face. Adipocere is formed by the anaerobic (bacteria that thrives in elements where no oxygen is present) bacterial hydrolysis of fat in tissue.
The transformation of fats into adipocere occurs best in an environment that has high levels of moisture and an absence of oxygen, such as in wet ground or mud at the bottom of a lake or a sealed casket, and it can occur with both embalmed and untreated bodies. Adipocere formation begins within a month of death, and, in the absence of air, it can persist for centuries.
My Adipocere is a little different.... Its a soft body butter and I love the name so much I couldn't help but name it after the waxy morbid substance.
It has a dense, fluffy texture that makes it irresistible and is chock full of skin-loving shea butter and cocoa butter. It glides on smoothly and also contains Safflower Oil, Certified Kosher Glycerin, Vitamins A, C and E and a botanical extract blend of Chamomile, Aloe, and Lavender. Not only is it bursting with quality ingredients, its Paraben free! The smooth consistency of this body butter will provide you with a moisture indulgent feeling that will last!
The scent is one of my FAVORITE and I have been dying (no pun intended) to find the right bath and body product to use it with. The scent is Passionfruit and Rose which is an exotic floral scent that is ideal for refreshing the long hot days of summer. Crisp, sweet, and modern. As cool and tropical as a tall iced mimosa, this scent will instantly remind you of warm, windy Hawaiian nights in a cemetery perhaps?

I'll be honest, I typically hate most lotions and creams, and I bought this purely because a body cream called "Adipocere" is too good to pass up! That being said, I'm actually in love with this stuff. It feels wonderful on the skin, and it smells SO GOOD. Like, people in the grocery store stop you and ask what you're wearing, that good!
