Tropical Traditions Organic Moisturizing Lotion {REVIEW & GIVEAWAY}

As you well know, I am a huge fan of anything from Tropical Traditions!  They have some of the best natural products for everything from laundry to haircare to cooking products.  I am also a religious user of lotion.  Everyday I use moisturizing lotion because the climate is so drying here in the Northwest so if I didn't use some sort of lotion, my skin would be insanely dry.  That's why I elected to review Organic Moisturizing Lotion from Tropical Traditions.  I was curious to know if coconut oil really is a wonderful for skin as they claim.

I chose the Baby Silk Organic Moisturizing Lotion because it's the most popular lotion so I figured I couldn't go wrong, right?

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.

All of the moisturizing lotions that Tropical Traditions offers are made with organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Virgin Palm Oil. No other products on the market are made with finer oils as their base. Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil is traditionally made from fresh organic coconuts, and independent laboratory tests show that it has a higher level of antioxidants than other coconut oils.

Virgin Palm Oil contains high concentrations of a powerful form of Vitamin E called “tocotrienols” which published research has shown is 40–60 times more potent than alpha-tocopherol (the most common form of Vitamin E found as an additive in most skin care products.) In addition to these powerful Vitamin E tocotrienols, Virgin Palm Oil is also rich in natural carotenes. It is one of the richest natural plant sources of carotenes with concentrations of 500–700 ppm. It is 15 times more retinol-equivalent than carrots and 300 times more than tomatoes, for example.



So, what did I think?  I really like this lotion.  The consistency is thick but not heavy once it's applied to the skin so you feel moisturized but not weighed down.  The Baby Silk scent is amazing!  It's not overpowering but just slightly floral and refreshing.  I can definitely tell why it's the most popular scent and is a geat bargain at $15.99 for 8 oz.

Guess what?  One of my lucky readers will win a bottle of this amazing lotion!  Enter below!
