Handmade Lotion Bars
Lotion bars will give you a new way to moisturize and you’ll only have to once a day! A relatively new concept in skin care, a lotion bar is a solid lotion that can be used anywhere on the body. The bars will stay solid when kept at room temperature or lower. It’s designed to slightly melt with the contact of your skin, using your body heat. Best time to use them is when your pores are open and your body heat has risen from being fresh out of the tub. You can also hold them between your hands to warm them up and rub in on the desired area.
What’s better about lotion bars?
All-natural lotion bars and body butters are the purest way to go for moisturizing your skin. They are free from the potentially hazardous chemicals found in commercial lotions. Free from phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, paraminobenzoic acid (PABA), ethanolamines, and petroleum. All of which not only contaminate you but our environment and waterways.
They are way more effective too! Our lotion bars are made with natural oil’s, butters, beeswax, and essential oils. Where commercial lotions on the other hand are created by combining oil with water and a preservative of some sort. Water cultivates bacteria, so in order to prevent that a preservative is added. Anytime you see water present in lotion ingredients you can guarantee a chemical preservative is present too. Being that we don’t use water as filler, we never have to use a preservative either! With natural ingredients, the process for creating a lotion bar is low impact on the environment and you!
Why they work?
We use Beeswax, that’s why! Beeswax is both a natural humectant and occlusive, what’s a humectant and occlusive you ask? It means that it attracts water molecules and moisture from their environment, which can be from the outside air or moisture from the underlying layers of your skin. It keeps your skin moisturized and at its natural balance, controlling the oils on your skin. Beeswax also prevents the loss of moisture by creating a protective barrier against environmental stressors while still allowing the skin to breath without clogging pores. It’s a natural antiseptic, which can help keep the skin clean and free from bacteria and has anti-inflammatory properties to help with redness. The Vitamin A found in beeswax can help with reducing the appearance of scars and stretchmarks with regular use. They are extremely gentle for sensitive skin and plus we’ve added in other oils to each lotion bar for extra conditioning purposes.
