Solid lotion bars are a great way to moisturize severe dry and cracked skin by applying solid butters and wax that are thick enough to reach the cracks and crevices and create a barrier to keep moisture in and heal from the inside out.
It looks like a bar of soap, It is easy to use and with zero waste!
Made with our own local raw beeswax, organic raw unrefined cocoa butter, organic coconut oil, organic coffee oil, organic vanilla extract and organic vanilla oil. We make the coffee oil, vanilla oil and the vanilla extract in house to ensure the absolute best ingredients are used.
Results of a study from 2013 suggest that substances in coffee also help to promote healthy skin. Caffeic acid, an antioxidant, may boost collagen levels and reduce the premature aging of cells. Caffeic acid also has antimicrobial properties, which means that it may help protect the skin against germs.
The beeswax is harvested from our own hives and worked in house to produce a high quality wax that is loaded with vitamins and minerals. Beeswax has proven anti inflammatory properties, encourages wound healing, acts as a protective barrier without clogging pores. Beeswax is high in Vitamin A which has been found to support cell reconstruction.
Our organic unrefined cocoa butter is sustainably sourced and is a natural plant butter which is a solid ingredient that also acts as a barrier. Cocoa butter is high in fatty acids that help to hydrate and nourish skin. It is an antioxidant powerhouse with additional anti inflammatory properties and pairs extremely well with our natural beeswax.
Hold the lotion bar between your hands and allow the warmth to slowly soften the butters and wax to then allow you to moisturize either with your hands or you may apply the lotion bar directly to your skin.
Just rub the bar in between your hands just like a bar of soap and apply. Apply more pressure with the bar in key areas such as elbows and heals.... apply less pressure as you skim over other areas that only need a small amount.
They are a bit mesmerizing, so mind yourself that your not over applying and find that your using to much. This lotion bar is gentle enough to be used on the face and on sensitive skin. When resting the bar, do not place on linens or surfaces that could have dirt or pet hair that could stick to the bar. Rest or store your lotion bar in its original packaging to help preserve the integrity of the lotion bar.
The best time to use the lotion bar is immediately after taking a bath or shower, while the pores are open and clean. It is wonderful to relax at the end of the day and enjoy the ritual of applying the bar against sore tired feet. Always use clean hands when using the bar and apply to clean skin.
This is a nice sized 2 oz bar that has been molded in a honey bee theme. Keep away from high heat and do not leave in a hot car or purse. This solid lotion bar will be most beneficial if used up within 1 year.
Keep away from children and pets because it does smell like a treat and we wouldn't want anyone getting a belly ache from eating your lotion bar.
If you thought coffee helps your eyes open and makes you feel like you can greet the morning, imagine what it does for your skin. Love the way this lotion bar makes my aging skin feel nourished and alive.
This lotion bar is amazing! It smells divine! It also stays on your hands for a while, so way less needing to re-apply ;) I love it and will be wanting more. My go-to for healing, protecting and bonus aromatherapy =)
