All-purpose body lotion
Body lotions are moisturizers for the body. They are thinner than face creams, so they spread easily over the body and are quickly absorbed by the skin. Body lotions are valuable in the summer when the sun has dried the skin, especially after sunbathing, although the body benefits from moisturizing all year round. This light lotion is suited to all skin types. The recipe uses a base skin lotion, with no colour, fragrance or other additives. Oat-plant milk is a natural moisturizer that is easily absorbed by the skin.
