Sephora, the well-known beauty brand, is making headlines, but not for the usual reasons like popular products or effective marketing.

Prepare for a surprise if you’re a Sephora products fan, and it’s not good news for the marketers.

The talk of the town is a peculiar incident involving a Sephora customer’s experience with Sol De Janeiro Body Butter.

What exactly happened?

A Sephora customer raised eyebrows by asserting that the Sol De Janeiro Body Butter seemed to act like a magnet for wolf spiders, drawing them in daily.

A cautionary note was issued against applying the body butter for those who fear wolf spiders.

The customer claimed the spider showed up daily since using the lotion, even describing a peculiar incident where a spider seemingly pursued them to consume the lotion’s ingredients.

It might sound hard to believe, doesn’t it?

Chemical Connection

The fascinating story evolved into a scientific discussion as someone delved into the possible reasons behind the spider attraction phenomenon.

Speculation centered around two chemicals, farnecyl acetate and hexadecyl acetate, which are recognized for attracting male spiders and are commonly found in skincare products. 

However, it’s crucial to note that there’s no confirmation yet on whether these particular chemicals are indeed present in the composition of the Sol De Janeiro Body Butter.

Customer’s review

Following the news, customers have split into two camps. Some are injecting humor into the situation by playfully proposing the idea of a ‘spider army’ to tackle mosquito problems. On the flip side, many share the same story of seeing spiders after applying lotion.

Some people choose not to comment. The Sephora community is experiencing a considerable amount of chaos.

Amid this mix of humor and apprehension, the incident serves as a noteworthy reminder for consumers to be cautious about the ingredients in skincare products and their potential, sometimes unexpected, effects on the environment.

While beauty products undoubtedly enhance our appearance, we must exercise caution in our choices. Reading product ingredients carefully is essential, as some brands incorporate chemicals that could harm our skin with prolonged use. So, take a moment to be vigilant about what you’re putting on your skin and choose wisely for long-term skincare health. 

So, stay cautious!


As the discussions unfolded, skepticism also entered the scene. Some users noted that the original review was tagged as ‘incentivized, and the reviewer has a history of making similar claims about different products. This discovery casts doubt on the reliability of the assertion, prompting a closer examination of the credibility of the information presented.

List of Ingredients 

To get a clearer picture, let’s examine the ingredients listed on the company’s website for the Sol De Janeiro Body Butter.
