5 Tips to Select the Best Moisturizer for Happy Skin.

Wondering how to select the best moisturizer to make your dry skin happy? It’s January and we are exhibiting at the FWSSR (Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo). Yes,we sell soap, but right now more people are interested in our moisturizers.

We make three different types, body oil, body butter and lotion bars. They all have different consistencies, melt points, uses and scents. We go through how to choose one to fit your needs best.

Select the right moisturizer starts with the ingredients.

Look for moisturizers with all natural ingredients created with vegetable oils and no mineral oils or petroleum products. You want something that will actually soak into your skin and be absorbed, not just sit on the surface. We use oils and butters like safflower, shea butter and cocoa butter.

Choose the right consistency.

For the Best Moisturizer choose the right ingredients

For example we make body oil, body butter and lotion bars. Each of these three products have a very different consistency or weight on your skin. Our lightest moisturizer are our Body Oils. These are all in a base of safflower oil and you can use them year round.

Next is the Body Butter which is mainly composed of whipped butters like shea and cocoa. This is a slightly heavier consistency and I generally use it primarily during cold weather.

The heaviest consistency are our Lotion Bars which have beeswax in them. These are created more for portability and t

Choose the right melt point.

Choose a solid moisturizer

If you want to be able to carry your moisturizer with for work or travel then you need to consider the melt point and portability. Lotion Bars are designed to be able to be carried with you in your purse or pocket or even onto a plane. Body Oil is liquid and so it is subject to the possibility of leaking and of course is a no go on a plane. Our Body Butter can melt in a really sunny window. In fact we only make it and ship it during the cool weather months.

Select the right moisturizer for your intended use.

Natural Body Oil with Essential Oils is a great light moisturizer

For example, do you want something just to rub on your feet at night or an all over moisturizer for when you get out of the shower? Body Oil is best for an all over moisturizer. I generally reach for the Body Butter when I want something a bit heavier for my legs and feet, although I know some of my customers love it for their hands. Lotion Bars are really designed more for small areas like fingers, cuticles, elbows and feet.

Select the right scent to make you and your skin happy!

  • Start with all natural – something created using essential oils instead of fragrance oils.
  • Pick a scent you like.
  • Decide what benefits are important.
    • Moisturizing – lavender
    • Headache – peppermint
    • Stress – lavender, frankincense
    • Eczema – lavender, patchouli, rose, frankincense & myrrh
    • Insect Repellent – lemongrass, peppermint

  1. I can’t wait to try your moisturizer!! Do you make face moisturizer or just body butter? Love all your products!!

      Thanks Renee! The body butter should be available to be ordered around the end of the month. The only face moisturizers I make are the Face Serums, which you have ordered.

      Are you not using those as your face moisturizer? That’s how I use them. I cleanse and dry my face and then apply my face serum and let it soak in as my face moisturizer. That’s it. Pretty much my entire face care regimen except occasionally using the face scrub.

      Please let me know if you have other questions!
