What’s all this you might ask? Just your basic everyday lotion. Oh ya, I want to rub that stuff all over my body. Sure there are a few redeeming ingredients – shea butter, jojoba seed oil, lavender extract and water but that’s about it. Those are the only things I would even consider rubbing on my skin. As many of you know parabens are bad news, as are dyes, perfume, petrolatum and basically every thing else on this list.
Studies have found that toxic ingredients from lotion can be found in the blood cells, fat cells and tumors.
Did you know that you can make a luxurious lotion with only a few simple ingredients? While I have never specifically used the four ingredients mentioned above, I do use a similar combination. This lotion will sooth, hydrate and heal your skin, just like it was meant to without the harmful ingredients.
