Unlike lotion, lotion bars are made entirely of oils and waxes. A lotion bar is a solid lotion. It can look like a bar of soap or a stick of lotion in a tube, and it acts like a lotion. There is no water added so no preservative is necessary. You can rub them on the backs of your hands, or all over your feet, elbows or knees and as the natural warmth of your body heats them up, they begin to melt leaving behind soft, beautiful skin! There are several benefits of lotion bars over traditional lotion as they are less messy, less greasy and more easily absorbed than many lotions, they are completely natural with no preservatives, no chemicals and nothing artificial. Ingredients are all natural and healthy for your skin.
This lotion bar stick is in a push up (1 oz) or twist (2 oz) tube for easy travel and application.
Keep out of direct sunlight as the lotion may melt in extreme heat.

Cocoa butter is extracted from the cocoa bean and is full of healthy fatty acids to heal dry, sensitive skin. The natural antioxidants have internal benefits such as heart health and improve cognitive functioning, and the saturated fats are especially beneficial for healing dry, cracked skin because they are easily absorbed and remain on the skin for hours. Cocoa butter is known to help diminish signs of aging, plus soothe sensitive skin suffering from dermatitis or rashes. It improves health, including improved skin elasticity and skin tone, better collagen retention/production and better hydration, especially since it is free from potentially harmful or irritating ingredients.
Shea butter is obtained from the nuts of the shea tree from West Africa and acts as a moisturizer to give a nice glow to the skin. It is high in vitamin A and E, is hydrating, provides anti-aging properties, helps tissue with cell regeneration and softens the skin. Shea butter has been known to reduce wrinkles and the appearance of stretch marks, scarring and cellulite, as well as boost collagen and relieve dry skin.
Coconut oil has been known to improve skin issues such as eczema, dermatitis and psoriasis. The fatty acids in coconut oil reduce inflammation internally and externally. Its antioxidants moisturize, protect and heal the skin. This oil works by reducing stress on the liver and by lowering oxidative stress, which can slow aging.
Beeswax is used in many skin care products because it provides protection against irritants while still allowing the skin to breathe. It also has anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antiviral benefits making it helpful in treating skin irritation.
Olive oil is rich in vitamins, minerals and natural fatty acids. It is rich in antioxidants, helps to prevent skin aging, the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, it also nourishes, rejuvenates and protects the skin. Olive oil is rich in vitamin A and E, assists skin cells to regenerate, and maintains the elasticity and softness of skin.
Vitamin E helps to strengthen the capillary walls in your skin and to improve moisture and elasticity, acting as a natural anti-aging nutrient within your body. It helps to reduce inflammation and maintain healthy, youthful skin. Since it speeds up cell regeneration, vitamin E can be used to treat scars, acne, and wrinkles, making your skin look healthier and younger.
