What sets body care products apart from many others like treatments or specialty items is that for most of us, we use them every day. From your morning skin care routine to your after-work shower and all the way to your before-bedtime bath, regular use of body care products is something that most of us identify with.
Body care products are also some of the most important products to start with when making the swap from synthetic to natural, precisely because of the fact we’re using them so frequently. Many lower priced body care products available today are full of less than desirable ingredients like parabens, preservatives that have been linked to hormone disruptions, synthetic fragrances that have been linked to skin rashing and irritation and other no-no's like polyethylene glycol products (PEGs) that are sometimes derived from petroleum products. When so many clean, green options exist for essential oil lotions and other body care products, why take the risk?
Ingredients in body moisturizers
At Saje we formulate all of our body care moisturizers to be free of potentially harmful and irritating ingredients like mineral oil, petroleum by-products, phthalates, silicone and sulfates, among many others. We pride ourselves on 100% natural and nature-derived ingredients, 100% of the time.
Essential oil lotion is just one of a myriad of body care products you can use to support the health and well-being of your skin. As we move out of the chillier, drier winter months, it’s important to remember that our skin still needs moisture regularly, and that using lotion after a bath or shower when the skin is still damp is an excellent way to replenish our bodies. At Saje, we use carrier oils and other plant derivatives in the base of our lotions to help replenish and lock in moisture, ensuring the skin is never left feeling greasy or heavy. Some ingredients in our lotion bases include:
Shea nut oil: rich in vitamins and essential fatty acids, this skin superfood will leave you feeling radiant and deeply moisturized
Aloe Vera leaf juice: a rich source of antioxidants to help fight free radicals, aloe is skin conditioning and restorative
Mango seed oil: helping to gently exfoliate the skin, mango seed oil is cleansing and healing for the skin while promoting natural renewal
