The Healing Place Farm Lotion Bars (a lotion in a bar) are made from all natural ingredients: Beeswax, Almond Oil and Cocoa Butter. Admittedly, it is a bit of a learning curve or process change to use lotion that looks like a deodorant. But, the benefits and routine change far outweigh the sideways glance at the tube of "Lotion Bar".
The first ingredient, Beeswax, has antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-inflammatory properties to help heal dry skin, cuts, burns, rashes, and chapped lips. Through skin absorption, beeswax is thought to reduce symptoms of aging, allergies, hay fever and arthritis. Have you ever smelled the rich, deep aroma of natural Beeswax? If not, you've used only the deodorized version, you're certainly in for a treat.
Almond Oil is the second ingredient. You will find it a gentle moisturizer for the skin. Vitamins A, E, Omega-3 fatty acids, and Zinc are components of Almond Oil. Some studies suggest that Almond Oil improves complexion, soothes dry skin, moderates sun damage, reduces visibility of scars as well as stretch marks.
Cocoa Butter is very high in fatty acids. Hydrating and nourishing the skin are primary benefits of Cocoa Butter. The fatty acids form a beautiful protective barrier over the skin which locks in moisture. The antioxidants in Cocoa Butter are naturally found and help fight free radical damage. I recall using a Cocoa Butter Stick as a child which was straight Cocoa Butter and it had the most amazing aroma. Cocoa Butter worked to reduce the visual of a scar and more importantly, heal it. Today, you would struggle to find that scar.
Most other skin lotions use mineral oil and petroleum products that will pull moisture out of the skin. In addition, chemical components are rampant in the cosmetic/moisturizing world. Our goal is to use simple ingredients with unending health benefits and wellness value.
To apply, simply rub the Lotion Bar onto the skin and the warmth of your body will melt the bar providing the moisturizing protection needed to thoroughly treat your skin. They do not spill or dry out, and are great for travel, even on airplanes. Tuck them into your backpack, messenger bag, back pocket, or purse. The portability is a benefit as is the no-spill feature.
