Home/ Blog / Give Your Skin Some TLC With Utilis Hydrating, Moisturising Vegan Body Lotion
Over the last few years, many of us have become obsessed with ensuring the skin on our faces is cleansed, hydrated, moisturized, brightened, and so much more. Theres no doubt: facial skincare routines are a big deal. But what about the rest of our bodies? Just like our faces, our bodies deserve time, attention, and great products. Here are all the best vegan body lotions to kickstart your body care routine.
Body lotions are essentially a moisturizer for your entire body. Thicker than the creams you may use on your face, they help to give your body a boost of hydration and moisture, leaving your skin feeling soft, smooth, and conditioned.
The skin on the human body has three layers: the epidermis, the dermis, and the hypodermis. Body lotion helps to nourish the top part of the epidermis, the stratum corneum, which serves as your body's frontline defense against toxins and germs.
Sometimes the skin barrier can be damaged by things like harsh soaps, sun exposure, allergens, or humidity, but the right moisturizer or lotion can help to keep it healthy.
Jojoba oil, for example, is a common lotion ingredient, and research suggests that this (as well as other plant oils) may be able to help repair damage to the skin barrier.
Ingredients like hyaluronic acid can also help your skin to retain vital moisture and limit water loss.
Like a number of skincare products on the market, body lotions can sometimes include animal ingredients.
Tallow, for example, can sometimes show up on ingredient lists. Used to thicken creams, tallow is a type of animal fat, and is often derived from sheep or cows.
Super-hydrator squalene (known in its stabilized, hydrogenated form as squalane, with an a) is another common addition. And while it can be sourced from plants, it can also be harvested from sharks too. (Sharks produce squalene in their livers.)
Other animal ingredients sometimes used in moisturizers or lotions include lanolin (from sheep's wool), honey (produced by bees), and collagen (which often comes from fish or bovine sources).
But the good news: the plant world is also filled with skin-boosting ingredients
Shea butter, vegetable and fruit oils, cocoa butter, and coconut extract are just a few of the common vegan-friendly ingredients used across body care to hydrate, moisturize, and nourish your skin.
Utilis body lotion comes with Shea butter that boosts skin moisture. High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties. Chamomile oil may help reduce signs of aging by protecting the skin from free radical damage. Chamomile oil accelerates cell and tissue renewal. Rosehip oil hydrates and moisturizes skin helps protect against sun damage, exfoliates, and brightens skin. Maracuja Oil is a superior emollient rich in vitamin C, calcium, and phosphorus. Maracuja helps to heal dry, chapped and cracked skin.
