Elbow Grease ManLotion -Buttery Soft Lotion Concentrate


Lotion Alternative- Better for your skin!

Literally… moisten your elbows, but also your hands and knees… anywhere dryness is a problem with this Buttery Soft lotion alternative that has a Shea and Peach kernel oil base, with Meadowfoam, Jojoba and Rosehip oil for moisture and smoothness! This is an extremely concentrated “lotion,” it just takes a dab, so the jar will last a long time!  We burn wood for heat in our home, so our home, and thus our skin is extra dry in the winter. This product was the result of months of testing and formulating, aimed at overly dry skin! We were the first guinea pigs, and after we went months with smooth hands we passed it on to our testers, who also had fabulous results! This lotion alternative is very luxurious! 

Please Note: Elbow Grease contains Menthol. If you would like a Buttery Soft lotion alternative without Menthol, try our Seaside Spa.

Ingredients: Peach Kernel Oil, Shea butter, Cherry Kernel oil, Beeswax, Extra Virgin Organic Coconut oil, Meadowfoam oil, Mango Butter, Organic Jojoba, Dead Sea clay, Rosehip oil, Essential oils, Menthol, Natural Vitamin E, Rosemary oleoresin(ROE).

The need

I spent the first 45 years of my life battling dry, cracked hands. You may be able to relate to that! I did the lotion routine, but it never seemed to genuinely help. I even did the “spa” lotion routine. You know, that expensive lotion that surely will help, because, due to the price, it MUST be made of gold! I went back to the cheap stuff because it didn’t seem to make any difference.  # 100% natural ManLotion Concentrate

The big move

Then we moved to the country to homestead. Wood burning was all the rage! After all, if you burn downed lumber (which we did), and have a catalytic converter on your fireplace (which we do), it is a great stewardship thing to do!


What we hadn’t anticipated was how dry that would make the air (even with a water pot on top of the fireplace) So cracked, often bleeding hands became the norm. # 100% natural ManLotion Concentrate

The help!

After I started making soaps I got absolutely fascinated with the differences in oils, and what they each could do! While making lip balm one day I messed up a batch. Not one to waste anything, I used it on my hands since I couldn’t sell it. I was amazed that it helped. But not only helped, helped much more than any lotion ever had. I was hooked! I began to experiment with every oil I had, and to buy the $100-$500 a gallon oils!

But what about natural?

After I made the experimental batch I began to look up lotion recipes. What I discovered was shocking. All of them were 75-90% water! And they all had added chemical preservatives in them. It turned out, when you have water, you have to have chemical preservatives in order to prevent the mold from growing. (Suddenly the fact that lotions seemed to make my dry hands worse in the long run, made sense!) We wouldn’t do that, bc we had made a commitment to never use nasty chemicals. So the Lotion Alternative line was born. Several months studying various oils, and their compositions has led to what we believe is the best line of waterless lotion concentrates you will find anywhere!

ManLotion Alternative
