What the heck is a Lotion Bar? A lotion bar is a solid lotion. It resembles a bar of soap, but acts like a lotion. The bar will stay solid when kept at room temperature or lower. It can be used anywhere on the body. When applied to skin, body heat will slightly melt the bar. Lotion bars are typically made from all natural ingredients including butters and oils like Cocoa butter, Shea butter, Beeswax, Jojoba oil, Avocado butter, Sweet Almond oil, Hempseed oil and essential oils.
Why is a Lotion Bar Better?
Why is the lotion bar better, you ask?? Here are three reasons.
1. No plastic bottle/ Environmental Footprint Because the lotion is solid, there is no need to package lotion in a plastic bottle. Also with natural ingredients, the process for creating a lotion bar is low impact.
2. Use IN the shower/ Efficiency of Application and Increased Moisturizing 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. Purity/No Fillers Lotion bars are free from the potentially hazardous chemicals found in commercial lotion products, such as phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), ethanolamines and petroleum.
How to Use a Lotion Bar
Using a lotion bar is easy; just take the lotion bar into hands and warm it with body heat, this will melt a small portion of the bar. You can then rub the lotion onto the body part that needs moisturizing, or get enough in hands to put lotion bar down and use hands to cover skin. Lotion bars are especially effective in the shower, or right out of the shower when pores are open.
