Mango Butter Lotion Bar – Geranium and Mandarin
Formulated especially to moisturise dry hands without the need to resort to a jar of balm, this solid lotion bar will do the trick. It is packed with ingredients chosen especially for their skin benefits:
- Mango seed butter contains phytosterols and phospholipids and is well known for its emolliant and antioxidant properties; it is especially beneficial for dry skin after exposure to the sun, wind or frequent hand washing and is known as a 'dry oil' since it is quick to penetrate into the skin.
-Avocado oil is also superbly emolliant with a reputation of having a higher degree of penetration into the skin than most other carrier oils; it is especially recommended for dry skins and for general skin inflammation.
-Rice bran oil contains high levels of tocopherols (vitamin E) and ferulic acid (both antioxidants) and squalane (a natural moisturiser found in the skin's sebum but declines with age), making it a wonderful skin conditioner overall.
-The herb calendula is well known for its healing effects on chapped and cracked skin and to help reduce inflammation; maceration in sunflower oil provides an excellent way to impart its beneficial effects into a cosmetic product..
-Beeswax not only helps to harden the lotion bar but also acts as an occlusive agent to form a barrier and protect the skin against transdermal water loss.
-Mandarin essential oil is a wonderfully gentle, uplifting oil
-Geranium essential oil is a calming and balancing oil
To use it, simply rub the bar gently between the palms of your hands. Your body heat will melt the outside of the lotion bar which you can then massage into your skin. We have included tapioca starch as this helps to reduce greasiness.
