Summer is here and it is harder to cover up that dry and patchy skin when you have to wear less clothing. As any compassionate consumer knows, it is difficult to find a good lotion that doesn’t contain lanolin, a hidden cruel contender amongst many so-called “cruelty free” lines.
In terms of animal testing, Desert Essence doesn’t test their finished product on animals, and they require that their ingredient suppliers are cruelty-free. Many of their products are gluten-free, and labeled as such, and all of it comes in BPA-free packaging.
Desert Essence’s lotion and skin cream line is full of ingredients that will aid in hydrating and repairing the skin. Shea butter, millet oil, argan oil, coconut oil, vitamin E and jojoba oil are some of the nourishing ingredients used in their lotions and creams. They combine their skin softening ingredients with heavenly scents, such as lavender, coconut lime, lavender, vanilla, sweet almond, pumpkin spice, and pistachio.
Desert Essence offers hand and foot creams for those who need something more moisturizing than the basic lotions. Their hand and foot creams include a higher concentration of oils and extracts to support seriously dry skin, as well as Vitamins A, C, E and K to help repair and rebalance the skin. A thicker and creamier mixture penetrates the skin with a stronger formula to help the skin return back to its soft and supple state.
