12 Best Vegan Lotions for Hydrated Skin
Hydrating our skin is an underrated step in many routines. Our bathroom counters are lined with serums, toners, and moisturizers for the face, but what about for the rest of our bodies? Skin is the largest organ after all, and it’s important we realize the best ways to take care of it. We’ve gathered together the best choices in vegan lotions for all skin types, including more sensitive skin. Each is chosen for it’s clean ingredients, cruelty-free practices, and ethical sourcing.
While dry skin can be more obvious in winter, skin needs a moisturizer no matter the season. During hot summer months our skin may feel sweaty, but underneath it’s parched and in need of good hydration.
For low-waste living, look no further than lotion bars. Ethique features a plant-based option with cocoa butter and a fresh orange and vanilla scent in solid form. It’s equal to two bottles of lotion, except without the excess packaging. Or, Ren Skincare’s body cream is housed in a bottle made from recycled ocean plastic and it’s able to be recycled again after it’s empty. For a great natural hand lotion specifically, try B Kind’s Nourishing hand balm with coconut oil. It’s tube is also created from ocean-bound plastic, and is fully recyclable after use. Less waste means all the more sustainable.
If you’re looking for a lotion featuring organic ingredients, check out Organic Bath Co.’s body butter.
