Our award winning handcrafted solid lotion bar with shea butter, borage oil, infused with chamomile and yarrow. Fragrant geranium and relaxing lavender for a floral summer scent.
All of our lotion bars are made from a base of cocoa butter and coconut oil, in our Meadow lotion bar we combine these with luxurious shea butter, nourishing borage oil and lightweight sunflower oil infused with chamomile and yarrow and Vitamin E. We have chosen the oils and botanicals that we associate with our wild British meadows to bring you a unique whole body experience.
We then add our own unique essential oil blend which we make in-house from Geranium, Lavender and Clary sage to add a relaxing, soothing floral scent that will calm your mind and lift your mood like a day in the garden.
Meadow Lotion Bar is VEGAN friendly.
Minimum weight 50g bar, packaged in an aluminium tin or greaseproof paper bag.
Why make lotion in a bar form? Simply to avoid any need for plastic packaging and to create a concentrated product free from water. You can therefore choose to receive your bar either as a ‘standard’ packaging option - in an aluminium tin which can be reused with your next bar or recycled - or as a ‘refill’ option - in a greaseproof paper bag which can be composted or recycled after use. We’re all doing our bit to help reduce plastic use in our homes.
How to use your bar:
As these bars do not contain any water, they are wonderfully concentrated and a little goes a long way.
Rub between your clean, dry hands; the lotion will start to melt as it warms up on skin contact. Rub this oil into anywhere that needs some extra attention, especially dry hands, knees, elbows, cracked heels, dry feet and rough skin.
To make sure your lotion bar lasts as long as possible, do not use with wet hands and store in its tin in a cool dry place.
Some of the ingredients we have chosen include:
Borage Oil is a fantastic source of GLA (Gamma Linoleic Acid) which helps regenerate, firm and rejuvenate the skin's barrier function and maintain skin elasticity. Borage oil also contains linoleic acid which helps to prevent wrinkles and premature aging, fights loss of skin elasticity and dryness. Ellagic acid supports the production of collagen, preventing its breakdown and regenerating skin cells. Ferulic acid, an antioxidant more effective than vitamin E, protects and soothes damage caused by sun and weather.
Shea Butter is rich in vitamins, plant sterols, minerals and other nourishing compounds for the skin. The butter softens, protects against drying, and nourishes. High in vitamins E and A, shea butter locks in moisture, increases elasticity and evens out skin tone.
Chamomile has been used in skincare for years, it is anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anti-fungal and antiseptic.
Yarrow has anti-inflammatory and anti-allergenic properties, with astringent properties, it is good for oily and acne-prone skin.
Lavender Essential Oil has been used for hundreds of years as it has a multitude of benefits. It is antibacterial, can help calm stress and anxiety and of course aids sleep.
Rose Geranium Essential Oil has a longstanding reputation as an essential oil particularly suited to women. It is supportive of the reproductive system and is also astringent, balancing the skin's production of sebum. Emotionally the oil is uplifting, as it can help with anxiety and depression.
