UNSCENTED LOTION BAR
I’ve made this one unscented because I realize how difficult it is to find anything without fragrance or scent.
AND SO CONVENIENT!
I haven’t always put on lotion because I find it to be somewhat of a chore but not anymore. Now it is so easy and so much better for the environment with the low packaging and (nearly) chemical free formula. I do put in just a titch of cyclomethicone – a very light silicone to help the bar slide on your skin rather than sticking. (Health Canada concluded that cyclomethicone is safe for humans and has low to no risk for environmental concern).
Yellow Beeswax, Food Grade unrefined Cocoa Butter, Mango Butter, Babassu Butter, Coconut Oil, Hemp Oil, Castor Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, Black Currant Oil, Jojoba Oil, Rice Bran Oil, Cetyl Alcohol, Sea Buckthorn Oil, Cyclomethicone (2%) and Vit. E.
Natural, unrefined beeswax is the super hero of skin protection, preventing irritation and encouraging healing far better than other oils or manmade waxes
Protective and moisture sealing, cocoa butter also contains cocoa polyphenols which benefit skin tone and elasticity. This is unrefined so maintains its top potential and a cocoa scent.
BLACK CURRANT OIL
Rich in Omega-6 essential fatty acid GLA (gamma-linolenic acid C18:3n-6) and is also a good source of ALA (alpha-linolenic acid C18:3n-3) an Omega-3 essential fatty acid.
This wonderful emollient also contains ricinoleic acid which may explain why castor oil works to treat dermatitas and inflammation while providing antibacterial properties as well.
Hemp Seed Oil is a rich and balanced source of omega-6 and omega-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids allowing it to alleviate skin dryness and prevent skin problems due to aging.
