Description: Pure Lotion Concentrate
Pure Lotion Concentrate. For people with sensitive, yet extremely dry skin, the battle⚔️ can be fierce! Here at Spero we understand that! Every single ingredient here at Spero is always chosen carefully with the best skin care possible in mind. This Lotion Alternative was no exception.
Is your skin a sponge?
The answer to that is long, complicated, and beyond the scope of this page. However, you will often hear the claim that your skin absorbs 60-80% or more of what you apply topically. Even some medications that doctors prescribe are transdermal application. So, it is probably safe to assume that a high percentage of what you apply to your skin is indeed absorbed. But what percentage highly depends on what the ingredient is, and its chemical breakdown. Remember, 100% of things you see around you are made up of “chemicals.” What we don’t want in our bodies, or on our skin are harmful, synthetic chemicals! (Hint: Many are trying to confuse the issue now by saying, “Derived from Natural.”)
What our Pure line does have:
Shea Butter, unrefined and organic, is known for its intense love for your skin! Meadowfoam Seed and Argan Oils have an incredible reputation as well. Then we filled it out with other Oils known for their skin loving properties, and enough Beeswax to give it a great texture.
Ingredients For Pure w/ Shea Butter:
Natural Unrefined Shea Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Babassu Oil, Avocado Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Organic Jojoba, Rosehip Seed Oil
What it doesn’t have:
No Essential Oils, Botanicals or Clays, Antioxidants or Mango Butter.
And of course, we never use water in our body products or chemical preservatives in any product!
Most people benefit from Clay, Herbs, and Essential Oils in their products. And Vitamin E, Rosemary Oleoresin and Grapefruit Seed Extract are great Antioxidants that we usually use in our leave on products. However, occasionally people with extremely sensitive skin can’t tolerate anything extra in their products. There is even a small percentage of people who can’t tolerate Vit E. (That, however, appears to usually be a reaction to the synthetic version, a product we never use!)
Why no Mango Butter? This, also, is an ingredient that most people’s skin absolutely loves. But according to our research, and comments from customers, it appears to perhaps be the most allergenic of the butters. So we stuck with only Organic, unrefined Shea or Cocoa Butter.
The complexities of Allergies
While we did our best to remove common triggers, only you can know what your triggers are. We also offer a Cocoa Butter option with Cocoa Butter and Cherry Kernel instead of Shea and Avocado for those sensitive to Tree Nuts and Avocados.
Ingredients for Pure w/ Cocoa Butter:
Natural Cocoa Butter, Meadowfoam Seed Oil, Organic Pumpkin Seed Oil, Babassu Oil, Cherry Kernel Oil, Beeswax, Castor Oil, Organic Jojoba, Rosehip Seed Oil
As with any new product, make sure you apply small amount in test area and wait 24 hours to check for reaction. If reaction occurs at any time discontinue use.
If you do have allergies, or any health concerns, check with your health care practitioner before using this, or any new products. Also check with your child’s health care provider before you use this, or any product, on small children.
Please note: if your allergies are severe, that there is simply no way to absolutely guarantee there is no cross contamination between this product and tree nuts. We do our best to ensure that all of our utensils are washed and sanitized between ingredients, but no company can honestly guarantee anything with 100% certainty. (Even our statement that this, and our other products, are 100% Natural, are based on the claims of others. We are careful to choose trustworthy companies, but as we don’t pick the fruit ourselves…)
Application of Pure Lotion Concentrate:
Apply sparingly to clean, damp or dry skin. Remove small amount with scoop, or clean finger tips.
