How many times have I raved about Tropical Traditions on this blogazine? If you’ve been a reader for any length of time, you have surely seen a post or two at least once a month. I can’t tell you how much I love their products. All of them. But for this review, I’ll just stick to their organic moisturizing lotions.
On Tropical Traditions‘ website, it states that…
Filipinos are well-known for their youthful appearance and soft skin, even though they live in a climate that exposes them to the sun’s rays year round. Coconut oil is their main dietary oil, and is also the main ingredient in their skin care products.
Soft and youthful would be nice, but when you think of coconut oil in a lotion, you think greasy, right? And no one in their right mind would ever want to apply a greasy lotion on their face, fearing clogged pores or (eek!) a break out. So I nervously took the ultimate greasy lotion challenge just to prove to the world that this lotion wouldn’t do that to my face. And not once or twice either. Actually, I’ve been using it on my face everyday for a couple of months now and have permanently replaced my face lotion for the Tropical Traditions organic lotion. It goes on smoothyl and absorbs quickly, leaving behind soft, touchable skin with no greasy residue, clogged pores or break outs. Unfortunately, I can’t attest to its performance on wrinkles since I really don’t have any major ones yet. (But I will let you know if it works on those in the future.)
What’s in these natrual, hand-made lotions? Not alcohols, nor petroleum products, no toxins, no soy, and definitely no artificial fragrances. Instead, they start with a base of Tropical Trraditions’ high quality organic Virgin Coconut Oil (containing more antioxidants than other coconut oils on the market) and Virgin Palm Oil, which is rich in natural carotenes and contains higher concentrations of tocotrienols (a more powerful form of Vitamin E than what most skin products on the market contain).
Other ingredients include a plant-based (non-soy) emulsifying wax, grapefruit seed extract, purified water, and organic jojoba. In the scented varieties, there are added organic essential oils.
- Lavender (relaxing and soothing)
- Citrus (revitalizing and uplifting)
- Peppermint (invigorating and stimulating)
- Arnica (aids in massaging tired muscles)
- Baby Silk (most popular scent)
The organic moisturizing lotions range from $14.50 to $15.99 for an 8-ounce size bottle. (Although these lotions are not just limited to your face, I did once pay more than that to moisturize my face.)
