What is a lotion bar? How do you use one and why should you?
Lotion bars are solid bars of lotion. They may resemble a soap but they act like a lotion. Our bars are made of skin nourishing natural ingredients such as beeswax, cocoa butter, coconut oil and various other essential oils. Absolutely nothing unnatural goes into our lotion bars!
The lotion bar is designed to stay solid at room temperature or lower but will melt when applied to the skin from ones own body heat. It can be applied anywhere on the skin (within reason), and is great for using when just coming out of the bath/shower. Using a lotion bar is easy - just take the lotion bar into your hands and warm it with body heat. This will melt a small portion of the bar. One can then either rub the lotion onto the body part that needs moisturising,or get enough in your hands to put the lotion bar down and use hands to cover your skin.
So why should you use this instead of normal lotion?
1. Its great for the environment. Think about all of those bottles of cosmetics and lotions you've used over the years. Where did that plastic come from, where does it go? Because our lotion is solid, there's no reason to package it plastic, instead we use thin cardboard boxes.
2. Use in the shower for easy an effective application and moisturising. The best time to apply moisturizer is when your pores are open, either in the shower/bath, or just out of the shower/bath. This allows the lotion to deeply penetrate skin as well as seal and protect skin throughout the day.
3. Nothing artificial or dangerous. Lotion bars are known for being a health conscious choice. Unlike many other packaged lotions they are made purely of natural ingredients. Our lotion bars are free from any potentially hazardous chemicals found in commercial cosmetics such as phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), ethanolamines and petroleum.
