It can if you have a death grip on it! You do not have to press down on your body butter bar if it is used correctly. When you are finished with your shower or bath, place the Body Butter Bar under the shower or warm bath water to soften, then apply it while your body is warm and wet with water. The water allows the bar to spread evenly without waste onto your skin and you can move it around your body, anywhere you want to soften and moisturize. Then pat dry with your towel without rubbing it off. You will experience awesome results if you do it this way.
