Most of us struggle with dry skin in the winter. The months get colder, noses get stuffed up, skin gets dry and cracked, and lips get chapped. Thankfully companies like Leaf Therapeutic have come up with all-natural solutions for winter dryness. Leaf Skin Therapy ultra-hydrating lotion sinks right in, showing me just how dry my skin really is. It's infused with a unique combination of ingredients such as fermented radish root and goldenseal extract, with none of the bad stuff like mineral oil or petrolatum.
I grew up being taught to read labels and avoid fillers that clog up your pores and ingredients that introduce toxins to your body. It's tough to find effective products that avoid some of the mainstream ingredients (and all those fillers can leave your skin feeling waxy). Leaf Skin Therapy Lotion sinks right in and has a protective, substantial feel to it, like it's adding a hydrating layer to your skin. It's not greasy and absorbs quickly, and a little goes a long way. I use it to hydrate the skin around my mouth area and on my kids' faces to protect against chapped skin. It also works wonderfully to soothe the dry patches of eczema on my hands.
I especially love that Leaf Skin Therapy Lotion was developed by a mom for herself and her own family. I feel some of the best problem solvers are moms who create solutions for themselves and then make their ideas available to others, because they are invested in the process on a very personal level. The mom entrepreneur behind Leaf Skin Therapy Lotion shares some of the background story that inspired her to create her problem-solving lotion. After developing a severe case of eczema after her second child, she decided to create her own hydrating solution.
"People with eczema and other dry skin conditions need to moisturize their skin often. Unfortunately, every lotion that I tried either made my skin react or did not sufficiently hydrate my skin. I decided to take a good lotion, improve on it, and see if it could finish clearing the eczema from my body. In order to do that, I felt that it was important to use the least toxic ingredients available. The result is Leaf Skin Therapy Lotion. Leaf Skin Therapy Lotion not only hydrates my skin, using it regularly clears my eczema!"
The primary component Urea acts to moisturize, reduce inflammation, accelerate wound healing, and improve cellular renewal. Urea also makes skin more permeable to other ingredients.
Environmental Working Group (EWG) scientists reviewed Leaf Therapeutic Skin Therapy Lotion for safety and gave it a rating of 1 for low toxicity.
