Lotions that work!
Lotions that work, what a concept!? Sadly, most lotions don’t actually work. They create a cycle of cracks, lotion, and more cracks.?We actually do have an answer: waterless Lotion Alternatives. Stay with us, and let us explain the reasoning behind this product❣️
What are waterless lotions?
We are asked frequently about the reason behind our Waterless Lotion Alternatives. To be honest, winter has always been a struggle for my family’s hands, as they are for most people. I have memories of cracked, splitting hands even as a child in warm Phoenix, AZ.
But several years ago we began to burn downed lumber as a renewable fuel source. Things got much worse after that! And lotions simply didn’t help. For 2-3 months of every year we could expect to have chapped, splitting hands. Little did we know the lotions were actually contributing to the problem!
A little research (The back of lotion bottles????) uncovered the fact that lotions have water as the first ingredient. So we began to research how to make lotions in order to make a more natural lotion.
What we discovered shocked us! We knew water was the first ingredient, but discovered most lotions are actually 60-80% water! This means lotions absolutely have to have a chemical preservative in them! (Any water in a product and it will get moldy if not preserved.) That introduces the biggest problem: Chemical preservatives on our skin!
(Also, as you know from washing your hands in the winter, putting water on your chapped hands doesn’t help!)
This discovery led to the desire to create a truly natural Lotion. We wanted one that was actually good for the skin! We embarked on a serious study of specific oils and their effect on the skin. Oils in their natural, unsaponified state. Over the next couple years our Lotion Alternative line was born, perfected, and expanded. Time has seen many winters now without cracked hands, and with many satisfied customers!
But how are we different?
There are actually several companies out there that offer waterless lotions. So, what makes us unique? We don’t stop at just removing the water, we use “Super Oils” along with top quality Natural Butters!
For example, this is the ingredient list for our best selling Seaside Spa:
Cherry Kernel Oil, Shea Butter, Peach and Apricot Kernel Oils, Extra Virgin Organic Coconut Oil, Beeswax, Argan Oil, Jojoba, Meadowfoam Oil, Mango Butter, Babassu Oil, Rosehip Oil, Dead Sea Clay, Natural Vitamin E, Rosemary Oleoresin
