How To Make Homemade Lotion Bar For Silky Skin

Whether you buy homemade products or not you have to give a try to this homemade natural bar for silky skin.

If you are one of the people who read the labels of cosmetic products, you will like this article. There are harmful products that are put in cosmetics that cause serious harm to our health.

As a result, the skin becomes oily, clogged, dried, and has enlarged pores. Some products cause cancer if you overdo with them, such as mineral oil, Petrolatum, paraffin liquidum, Dioxin (all of them cause breast cancer).

Dangerous components in cosmetics

Stay away from components such as:

SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and all ending on Sulfate – existing in all foaming products (toothpaste, soaps, shower gels, shampoos, and others). It penetrates the body and accumulates in the tissues of the eyes, brain, liver. Causes hair loss and dandruff.

Dimethicone, Amodimethicone, and all ending on -cone – create a non-washable layer.

Phthalates (dibutil and diethylhexyl) – have a strong effect on DNA. If a pregnant woman uses Phthalates it’s possible to harm the child, especially if it is a boy. This chemical blocks the processes that regulate the male sex hormones.

Parabens – highly toxic

TEA, DEA – toxic and carcinogenic

Thimerosal – a strong neurotoxin that affects the functions of the brain and nervous system.

Fragrance or parfum – chemicals and ingredients used as fragrance dispersants such as diethyl phthalate, that cause allergies, dermatitis, respiratory distress and potential effects on the reproductive system.

Be careful what you use for your skin. We take many times more substances through the skin than through the mouth. This is especially dangerous for children who are smeared with all sorts of cosmetics.

Natural Cosmetics

Natural cosmetics are simply made from three to five ingredients. They are not harmful and don’t contain chemicals. Although many brands claim they produce natural products, can we be sure they don’t add some chemicals to make their products more stylish, beautiful, and durable for the buyer?

If you don’t want to be exposed to dangerous chemicals, it’s time to replace mass-produced products for skin with natural safe products. I suggest you start with a homemade lotion bar that contains only harmless oils. This homemade lotion bar is super silky and buttery. It melts on your skin and moisturizes at the same time. The texture is light, smooth, and soft. Furthermore, the skin is hydrated and your health is protected.

How to Make Homemade Lotion Bar


– 2 tbs organic cocoa butter

– 1 tbs pure refined organic shea butter

– 1 tsp of organic safflower oil

– Optional 1 tbs of dried lavender buds or dried rose flowers

– 5 drops of lavender essential oil

– 5 drops of frankincense essential oil

– Silicon or soap mold


1. Melt the cocoa and shea butter.
2. One melted take it off the heat and add the dried rose flower.
3. Add the essential oil. When you add the essential oils take care of the butter is not too warm because the essential oils can evaporate.
4. Pour in a silicon or soap mold.
5. Put it in the fridge until it has completely solidified.
6. This will make two solid lotion bars.
7. Keep them in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

Gently apply the lotion bar on the skin when you feel the skin dry or every day to prevent dryness. Normally the lotion bar hydrates deeply but may remain a feeling of oiliness so wait 20 minutes for it to soak into the skin before dressing.

Cocoa butter hydrates and nourishes the skin and improves elasticity, owing to the fatty acids in it. Moreover, cocoa butter is known to smooth scars, wrinkles, and other marks on the skin.

Shea butter softens and hydrates skin. It is rich in fatty acids – including linoleic, oleic, palmitic, and stearic acids – that protect skin from damage. It contains vitamin E, which lightens the dark areas.

Safflower oil is a common ingredient in cosmetics and skin care products. It has anti-inflammatory effects and may help soothe and give the skin a soft and smooth appearance.

Remember that it is important not only what we eat, but also what we come in contact with. Everything we touch releases microbes or other molecules that are absorbed by the skin and enter the bloodstream. For this reason, we have to be aware of what we put on our skin.

American women put an average of 168 chemicals on their bodies each day, according to a nonprofit group.

Each of these toxic chemicals endangers your health.

Thus it is important to reduce toxic ingredients and start using as much you can natural products for you and your family. You can start now by doing this homemade lotion bar containing only natural ingredients. The overall effect is impressive!
