My first lotion bar was created out of desperation, mixed with creativity. The creativity came from the pleasure I got from making things from my kitchen for my family, whether it was soap, bread, mung sprouts or our family special “apple kefir” that resembles Martinelli’s sparkling juice.
The desperation came, literally, from my hands. I had the worst pain from the tips of my fingers that were often covered in Band-aids from the cuts and splits from my daily activities and extremely dry skin. My hands were my most important tools, but they caused me intense suffering… until the lotion bar.
Not only did that first lotion bar heal up my skin within days, but we tried it with my son’s seasonal eczema, and I was ecstatic that his pain also ended with the lotion bar.
Something that was so easy to make turned into a family business after my older boys and I took it to the farmer’s market for testing. I received great feedback from customers at the market, as well as several online groups who agreed to test it and fill out surveys.
I KNOW dry skin and the pain it brings. Because I’ve enjoyed the interaction that I get from my customers, I’ve created DIY videos for the lotion, as well as other products that we’ve developed based on customer request and our own family’s needs. Whether you purchase here, or create your own, give it a try and I believe you’ll be very happy with the results. Let me know how it works for you!
What is hard lotion?
Hard lotion is lotion that is solid at room temperature. It is designed to specifically protect hands and feet from cracked skin and extreme dry skin. (For more delicate skin, try the Beesilk Jr.)
For a non-toxic, safe alternative to bug repellant spray, try our Bug Block.
What’s in the hard lotion bar?
The hard lotion bar has three simple ingredients: shea butter, coconut oil and beeswax. That’s it! Shea butter and coconut oil are known edible emollients. They soften and soothe dry skin and are gentle enough to rub over skin cuts and cracks. The beeswax emulsifies the other two ingredients to create a beautiful combination to smooth your skin. You’ll be surprised to learn that this is all you need to get your hands back to work.
Why is “hard” better?
Hard lotion is better because it uses beeswax to leave a gentle, protective coating on the skin. The beeswax works to seal in the ingredients for longer-lasting absorption. No water necessary.
How do you apply it?
You gently rub it in your hands to apply hard lotion. Your normal body temperature causes the lotion to soften on contact with the skin. The ingredients will start to immediately meld into your skin. It only takes a few seconds to coat the skin and only a small amount of the lotion bar is necessary.
Who is it for?
Hard lotion is for those with cracked skin, split heels, alligator legs or rough elbows who have been frustrated with the lack of effectiveness of off-the-shelf lotions. It’s also for those who are concerned about the excessive use of steroids to control their skin problems and are looking for natural relief. It’s for both men and women who appreciate applying lotion that doesn’t leave the skin feeling greasy or sticky.
