Natural Body Lotion: The 3 Best Non-Greasy, Hydrating Formulas

THIS POST MAY CONTAIN AFFILIATE LINKS. PLEASE READ MY DISCLOSURE FOR MORE INFO.


Before I detoxed my entire skincare routine, I didn’t even know natural body lotion existed and used regular ol’ drugstore brands without thinking twice.

However, once I made a habit of looking up the Environmental Working Group (EWG) rating of every beauty product before using it, I realized my once trusted Jergens Daily Moisture Lotion scored a 6 (on a scale of 1-10). EEK!

Since I’d decided only to buy/use products in the 0-2 range, I began to hunt for a new brand.

(To read why I decided to detox my entire skincare/makeup regimen, read my post “Toxic Skincare And Makeup: Are Your Products Safe?”)

At this point, I should let you know that I’m veeeery picky when it comes to body lotion. I absolutely despise the greasy, nonabsorbent types, but I also have super dry skin.

My Jergens lotion was both non-greasy and hydrating; in my new natural search, I was unwilling to sacrifice quality for nontoxic ingredients.

Since I refused to stop my search until I found the absolute BEST non-greasy, natural body lotion…I succeeded!

Even better news: I discovered three favorites!!
