How many times have you heard or experienced, “My good summer days are ruined due to the oily mess that my skin turns into.” Or “Dry and itchy skin ruins the pleasure of warm during shivering winter days.” Or “Wrinkles and free-radicals are offsetting youthful inner me.”?
I have heard these objections at least a thousand times, if not more. When customers visit our store for best body lotions, all of them look for solutions to these problems. So, I thought, why won’t I write something well-rounded & informative for you people, so that you can stop wondering about the tide of the internet?
Yes, you guessed it right. Today I’ll discuss everything about body lotion and try to provide some scientific research-based data to back my claims.
What to Look for in a Good Body Lotion?
At the age of widespread pollution, a quality body lotion can be the perfect gift you can give to your skin.
As the skin is the most exposed part of the human body, it gets polluted through different kinds of impurities regularly. These impurities, if not appropriately prevented, can weaken and damage our skin cells and can cause inflammation, itchiness & various other conditions in the skin.
Perfect body lotion can prevent impurities from directly affecting your skin.
But there is only one big problem. In the product description, most of the body lotion states a massive list of fancy ingredients, and you don’t know why any of these are essential. You feel like dumbfounded, and after so much confusion, you decide to go with whatever the advertiser says.
Ok, today you are in luck. I am going to make the job much easier for you. In this article, I’ll explain what to look for in a body lotion from a useful point of view.
So, get excited to see what the qualities are that a perfect body lotion should have to save you from different skin issues.
The Best Body Lotion Should Have Sun Protection Formula.
Regardless of the type of your skin, your body lotion should contain some ingredients that provide you excellent protection from U.V. rays and heal sun-burnt skin.
One of the active natural ingredients that do the job ideally is Aloe Leaf Juice. Researchers found aloe leaf juice to be effective in treating sunburn and radiation effectively. It is also rich in water, and 200 types of nutritional substances that can reduce the impact of U.V. rays up to 30%. Aloe leaf juice can be applied to almost all skin types.
Butyrospermum Parkii is another ingredient that is widely used in skin care for thousands of years, and researchers found it to be effective in photoprotection, which can save the skin from the sun.
Should Have Anti-oxidants
The presence of anti-oxidants is a must in body lotions. During the day’s hustle and bustle, we sweat a lot and get exposed to a variety of environments. As a result, lots of bacteria, viruses, and impurities clog in our bodies. If our body lotion contains some effective anti-oxidants, then it can buy us some time to get back home and cleanse the body.
So, speaking of anti-oxidants, there is no one type of ingredient that contains all the anti-oxidants to protect our body from all impurities. In Leaf of Life Wellness, we take a holistic approach to infuse a wide range of ingredients with different anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In our lab tests, we found all of the ingredients can be applied in almost all skin types.
One of the key ingredients we use in our body lotion is vegetable glycerin. According to healthline.com, vegetable glycerin can be used to treat skin irritation, protect skin from microbes effectively.
Sunflower seed oil, calendula oil, ethylhexylglycerin, and stearic acids are some other ingredients that some of the best body lotions in the market use to include the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties in the body lotions.
All of the ingredients here are entirely natural, and that’s what that gives them an edge over other cheap chemical alternatives.
Should Carry a Delicate Fragrance
The fragrance resembles the personality of an individual. But, to have a long-lasting, strong fragrance, you shouldn’t opt for some chemical solutions, my friend. There are some natural alternatives too. Some of the most common fragrances used in all-natural body lotions are lavender, lemongrass, tea tree lemon, and rosemary.
Whatever fragrance you choose, make sure that the body lotion contains ethylhexylglycerin. Ethylhexylglycerin is not only an anti-microbial ingredient, but it is also a natural ingredient that ensures the fragrance of the lotion lasts long enough and keeps you feeling fresh.
Should Include Anti-Aging Ingredients
And, last but not least. Your body lotion should contain some ingredients that fight pre-radicals and wrinkles.
Due to decreased quality of air and increased consumption of junk foods in our day to day life, wrinkles and radicals start to appear so soon, sometimes at the age of 35 to 40. This pre-aging happens mainly because our skins not only lack some vital nutrients but also have to fight pollutions and impurities.
Your body lotion can provide a helpful hand to your total skincare package in addition to healthy food and regular cleansing.
Ingredients like sunflower oil, cetearyl alcohol, passion fruit seed oil, and sweet orange peel oil, etc. can fight off impurities and preserve essential nutrients intact on your skin so that the overall health of your skin stays at the optimal condition.
So, you might be wondering, “how on earth can I look for all these qualities when all body lotions claim they are the best?”
Worry not my friend. I have something for you. Leaf of Life Wellness don’t only claim to be the best; it tries to educate the readers, explains why it claims to be the best.

In terms of fragrance, ‘Lemongrass and Sage B.S.H. Hand and Body Lotion‘ is rich in scent of Lemongrass, which offers a hint of spiciness, can be distinguished easily, thanks to its citrus flavor, yet you never experience the bitterness of the lemon.

On the other hand, Tea Tree Lemon B.S.H. Hand and Body Lotion is rich in Tea Tree Lemon, which, according to Plant Therapy,
Lemon Tea Tree has a potent effect on the emotions, providing calming, centering, and focus on the more challenging times of the day.
And, last but not least.
All our body lotions contain B.S.H. (Broad Spectrum Hemp high in CBD, C.B.G., and CBN). B.S.H. is the oil extracted directly from the hemp plant. B.S.H. contains highly effective oils like CBD (cannabidiol), C.B.G. (cannabigerol) and CBN (cannabinol), but you don’t have any risk of getting high at all. That’s because T.H.C. (Tetra Hydro Cannabinol) is extracted out of B.S.H. to make it non-psychoactive. And, when B.S.H. (Broad Spectrum Hemp high in CBD, C.B.G., and CBN) is infused with other essential oils that can be a deal-breaker.
Numerous researchers support the claim that CBD, C.B.G., and CBN can be used effectively in treating multiple health issues. For your easy understanding of how B.S.H. (Broad Spectrum Hemp high in CBD, C.B.G., and CBN) oil can improve your bathing experience significantly, I’ve created a chart only for you. Have a look…
What to Avoid When Choosing the Best Body Lotion?Add Your Heading Text Here
Here are some ingredients you should avoid while choosing the best body lotion.
Excessive Usage of acidic ingredients
Body lotions that contain too much acid like alpha-hydroxy acids, glycolic acid, retinoic acid, and salicylic acid can be harmful to sensitive skin.
But, unlike all other acids, stearic acid is considered safe and mild, according to the Cosmetic Database, if it consists of 2-3% of the product.
In simple words, you should altogether avoid products that contain Parabens. Parabens are widely used in cosmetics to increase their total useful lifetime.
But, recent research found that the use of Parabens potentially leads to many health conditions. According to Scientific Americans, Parabens may cause hormone disruption, breast cancer, and reproductive toxicity.
We strictly avoid using any kind of Parabens in our B.S.H. Body Lotion Set.
How Can You Use Body Lotions for Best Result?
What is the best time to use body lotion?

For the best result, you should use body lotion twice a day. We recommend it once before going outside and once before going to sleep at night.
