It may be a newly-launched brand, but buttrmlk has longstanding foundations in founder Vania Dodoo-Beals’ family. Vania shared via Instagram that shea, the main ingredient in all of her products, has been used in her family forever “and has never let us down.” The products—including a whipped body butter and a lip balm—are all handmade with shea butter sourced directly from Ghana, and remixed with modern scents for a luxe body care experience. —Josephine Cruz
