Love clean beauty and looking for a healthy coconut lotion? I’ve tried several brands from the health food store, and below, I share my top favorite coconut lotions based on quality, price, and EWG rating.
Coconut oil is excellent for the skin and is one of the best oils for soft, hydrated skin.
If you like making beauty products, you will love my whipped coconut oil lotion, which is made with just coconut oil and is a great coconut moisturizer. Another great option is my DIY Whipped Body Butter, which is made with coconut oil, shea butter, jojoba oil and pure essential oils. Both body butters are made with coconut oil, leaving the skin smooth and soft. But I’ve got you covered if you want to find a healthy coconut lotion made with safe ingredients.
How To Find The Best Coconut Lotion
The main factors I look for in my skincare are safe ingredients, price, and performance.
Ingredients: Some ingredients are safer than others. One of the best tools I’ve used to help me find safer skincare is EWG Skindeep Database. I use their database to help me understand whether ingredients are safe, and you can even look up your current favorite skincare items to see if they’re safe for your body.
Price: Depending on your budget, some products may not be feasible for daily use. The coconut lotion brands I have on my list are affordable for most.
Performance: Does the lotion moisturize the skin? I’ve purchased lotions and creams containing safe ingredients but didn’t leave my skin moisturized. Some of these lotions are made with mostly water and fewer oils, making them not so great for my skin. I look for lotions that leave the skin soft but not oily.
