Finding the Right Lotion - Farm Girl Fresh

Finding the Right Lotion

Is your skin dry?

In our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World™   we talk about the importance of reading labels.  From food labels to cosmetic labels, we need to be aware of what ingredients are in the products on our shelves.

A cosmetic item that I frequently use, especially during the winter months, is a hand and body lotion.  Many of the commercial moisturizers sold today contain lots of water and include petroleum based ingredients.  When looking for a good moisturizing lotion, find one that has a short ingredient list and is as pure as possible.  Our motto is “less is best”.  Some of our local coops stock a homemade lotion of goat milk, shea butter and essential oils.  It is a great moisturizing lotion.

Finding the Right Lotion

If you have time and are interested in making your own lotion, use a high quality coconut oil, shea butter and essential oil (there are many recipes available on-line).  This combination of ingredients will give you a deep, rich moisturizer that doesn’t compare to most commercial lotions.  When using coconut oil and shea butter, a little goes a long way, making this lotion very economical.
