What you should know about solid lotion bars: A wonderful natural alternatine to traditional body lotions.
Applying a deep body moisturizer after bath is a key part of skin care routine to keep your skin hydrated & silky soft. Most women skip it, either because of lack of time or tiredness! I just have good news for all of you! Here is a quick fix solution: solid lotion bars.
What is a solid lotion bar made of?
Lotion bars are concentrated bars that melt when rubbed on skin and form a moisturizing layer like a film just because they are made of natural beeswax combined with nourishing oils to make a body lotion in a solid form.
A lotion bar doesn’t contain any water. That’s why they look like a bar of soap. So, they don;t require any preservative and are shelf stable for at least 6 months.
Reasons why prefer to use solid lotion bars.
- If you are someone who hates slathering on lotion, here is a quick fix for you- lotion They are made with completely natural ingredients that are so skin nourishing!
- Lotion bars are easy handling & extremely portable, especially if you can store them in a soap tin. Very comfortable for those travelling a lot, who need space & comfort but not a dehydrated skin.
- Also, ideal for kids.
- They are concentrated: no fillers-no additives-no preservatives, just the good stuff your skin needs. Extremely benefitial for dry skin/skin that tends to get dehydrated.
- They are long-lasting. A little goes a long way when you are using a lotion bar.
How should I use a solid lotion bar?
You just simply rub it on your skin-preferably on damp skin after showering when your skin is normally warmer and ready to absorb the oils in the lotion bar-and the heat from your body slowly melts it. Especially beneficial for dry feet and hands, but they can be used all over the body just like a traditional lotion. You can first warm the bar in your hands a bit, and then rub the melting bar over your skin.
In case you find that lotion bars not absorb as quickly as many traditional lotions, spend a little extra time rubbing it on your skin.
