I got this as a gift and will never use another lotion besides OWC again! The seaweed and sea salt in particular is basically my bedtime aromatherapy session - it brings me to the beach every time I apply it. As a body butter, it is moisturizing but still light on my skin, never oily. When COVID hit, I bought a case of these - would hate to see OWC go under like some of the other Mom and Pops where I live. Keep going strong OWC, I love your products!

As many have noted, this lotion takes you right back to the beach. It reminds me of the lotion I used as a kid and brings back many happy memories.
The texture of this lotion is wonderful--it absorbs and moisturizes beautifully! I also have the bar soap in the Seaweed Sea Salt scent and love it as well. It has a more subtle scent than the body butter, but also takes me back to the beach.
I was so impressed by this body butter that I purchased additional body butters to give as gifts. Every order I have placed with this company has arrived promptly and included a handwritten note of thanks.
Excellent customer service and high quality products have made me a big fan of Old Whaling Company and I look forward to working my way through trying out the many scents Old Whaling Co has that appeal to me.

Hands down the best lotion I have ever used! It is thick enough to be moisturizing without feeling heavy or greasy. And the scent-- AMAZING! It smells just like your skin when you've been on the beach all day, kind of salty, kind of like sunscreen.

My sister purchased this body butter for me for my birthday two years ago and I haven’t used another product since. I’ve tried numerous scents, but I always go back to this one because it reminds me of the beach growing up. I swear there was a sunscreen back in the day that smelled exactly like this! Awesome scent aside, this body butter is perfect for my skin year-round... after spending time in the summer sun and also post-shower to avoid winter dryness. I douse my entire body, head to toe, each day, and the tub lasts me about a month. I can’t say enough good things about it!

First, I have gotten rid of all other lotions in my bathroom because these Body Butters are amazing! They make my skin so soft, without it being oily.
Second, The Seaweed and Sea Salt fragrance is like being at the beach year round. The best part is that you don’t have to smell like coconut, like with most other body lotions that have a beach scent. As with all the other scents at The Old Whaling Company it’s not overpowering either.
Finally, as with all their products, The Old Whaling Company makes sure that you can feel the quality in everything you buy! When I place an order, I can’t wait for the mail to arrive! P.S the Bath Bombs and travel size Body Butters make GREAT gifts!

The scent reminds me of beach vacations and relaxation. It's not overpowering, and the lotion itself is perfect - hydrating without being greasy. It's perfect.

My husband and I were in Charleston, SC on our honeymoon and we were in the City Market, where we saw Old Whaling Co. I fell in love with the scents! My favorite is the Seaweed + Sea Salt. Once I started using the product, it is by far the best I have ever used. I also bought some of the bar soap and love it, as well. I found a shop near where we live that carries a small amount of product, so what they don't carry, I can order online. Great product all around!

I bought the Seaweed and Sea Salt Body Butter for my son who has very sensitive skin. Not only is the product soothing, non-irritating to his incredibly sensitive facial skin, and non-greasy, the scent is also amazing. We'll be back for more of this amazing body butter!

I LOVE the Seaweed and Seasalt body butter. The scent brings me right back to the beach. This is my fourth reorder. Need I say more?

This scent smells exactly like summers at the beach wearing Coppertone! The texture of the body butter is rich and luxurious, but it absorbs quickly, leaving my skin super soft. I received my order within two days of ordering. It was packaged lovingly with a handwritten note and included free shipping.

Smells like the beach -- and works wonderfully!! I first stumbled across the Seaweed + Sea Salt Body Butter while on vacation last summer. The shop owner mentioned that it smelled just like the beach and while I've had other products that claimed the same this one actually does smell like a summer day at the beach! Even better the butter's texture is light, not greasy, goes on easily and leaves a gentle hint of fragrance that lasts. The store was literally down to its last three jars and I snapped them up immediately. I was absolutely thrilled to find your website and even happier to find that you still offered the product and (unlike other companies I have dealt with) didn't see the need to "improve" on a good thing. To top it off my order arrived in under 5 days, was extremely well packed, and included a free gift. Thank you so much -- you have created an extremely loyal customer!
