I’ve always had dry skin. Like really dry, cracking, eczema-prone skin. I’ve tried every lotion under the sun. Some have worked, but they can be quite pricey.
I’ve also found it hard to find cruelty and all-natural, non-toxic versions that still work.
Nothing seemed to check all the boxes.
And I was tired of paying for lotions that didn’t meet my standards. It was like every area of my life was non-toxic and cruelty-free except for this one.
So began the trial and error of trying to create my own lotion that was moisturizing and non-toxic.
I’m happy to say that I succeeded and I can’t wait to share the recipe with you!
This recipe isn’t entirely my own. I did a lot of research and took a lot of ideas and tips from all sorts of recipes to piece together a concoction that works perfectly for me!
Being that I have eczema, this lotion is super gentle and should also work if you have eczema as well.
