Lotions & Potions: Non-Toxic Body Lotions

Lotions and Potions: Non-Toxic Body LotionsBody Lotions

Body lotion is a great item to switch because most of us aren’t that attached to a particular brand. It’s also something we get a lot of exposure to: we smear it all over our body and it absorbs all day!

My fave body lotions:

Acure Organics

Ah, I love these body lotions. Affordable, lovely-smelling and they’re not too thick or too thin. Win-win. Only problem is they’re not available in Canada.

Green Beaver

Green Beaver is a Canadian company and you can find their products at most health food stores. They have the thicker Boreal Lotion as well as more everyday options. Both are good. I use the thick Boreal lotion on my feet after the shower.

Sunscreen

Much of the sunscreen info will be the same as in the facial sunscreen post – many of my fave facial sunscreens are actually meant for the body but are light enough for the face.

Weird Lotions Like Depilatory Creams and Self-Tanners

Just don’t. Don’t melt hair off your body. Do I need to go into this anymore? I don’t know what chemicals are used to melt hair, but you probably don’t want them in your bloodstream.

Self-tanners are toxic too. I mean, really. It’s not natural. Embrace your natural tone and work it.

Have you tried natural body lotions? What are your favorite ones?

My favorite natural body lotions are Shea Moisture lotions and Nubian Heritage lotions.

Yes I love the Acure lotions. I admit I do love the sun but I think people look best in their natural state – if you’re fair-skinned, work it! Porcelain beauty is lovely. 🙂
