The no. 1 problem with regular moisturizers is that many of them contain unnatural and toxic ingredients. Most of these ingredients are known human carcinogens, so finding organic moisturizers is a must in trying to avoid serious health problems like cancer. But just because you’re going organic doesn’t mean you have to give up smelling fantastic. Below are my top picks for the best way to moisturize organically and smell fabulous in the process. Enjoy!
This ultimate, deep penetrating, hydrating moisturizer is packed with the richness of dreamy vanilla, organic cocoa and shea butters. Made with 30% shea butters and organic cocoa, this rich creamy crème protects skin from rapid water loss and produces glowing skin by providing hours of protection. Shea butter smooths flaky skin and repairs skin damage triggered by the unforgiving winter weather (take that, polar-vortex ravaged skin!), giving you beautiful and radiant skin. Ingredients like shea butter and cocoa also have natural sun protection, that leaves your skin not only moisturized, but also protects it against the winter sun.
With no added parabens, sulfates, artificial colors or fragrances, this delectable chocolate treat is a 99% natural product that deeply revitalizes your skin from the harsh winter and is perfect for both – body and soul. For the best way to moisturize with a body cream, take a liberal dollop of this cream and gently massage it onto a freshly cleansed body and face until your skin feels silky to the touch. Is this a daily-use cream for dry skin? You bet!
