Product Focus - The Lotion

Posted by on

Our award-winning The Lotion is a multi-tasking face and body lotion for the entire family. It's the perfect moisturizer for your summer travels, as it suits most skin types. You will only need to pack one bottle - The Lotion!

The Lotion gets its golden color from organic extra virgin olive oil, organic beeswax, organic raw Hawaiian honey, organic palmarosa essential oil and organic German chamomile essential oil. You will also find pollen, propolis and royal jelly in the beeswax and honey. 

What it does

Full of rich emollients from our beehive ingredients and organic olive oil, this lotion will moisturize, protect and feed your skin all day long. It's  also great for eczema and acne-prone skin. 

It deeply penetrates your skin and is specifically formulated to spread easily over your entire body.

Daily use will hydrate and beautify skin, helping to make it stronger, healthier and more radiant.

How to use 

Shake gently before each use. Squeeze a small amount onto the palm of your hand and spread liberally onto your skin as desired. The Lotion will spread more easily after a shower or bath on slightly moist skin. Can also be used as a face lotion.

Honey Girl Tip: We love using The Lotion as our face moisturizer in the summer time. Mist Facial Toner on clean face, then follow with a small amount of lotion on your face, neck and décolletage. It feels a little lighter than our regular face creams - perfect for warmer and more humid summer days - but is still full of all the nutrients your skin needs. 

Ingredients Intel

Purified Water

Hawaiian purified water is used in our formulations primarily as a solvent. Water helps form the emulsions in which the oil and water components of the product are combined.

Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil

We chose organic extra virgin olive oil because of its unique ability to be absorbed and supply nutrition to the skin. It is the most compatible oil to human skin because it has a similar composition of fatty acids. Therefore it absorbs deeply into your skin resulting in long lasting moisture and nutrition absorption.

It is also soothing and healing to all skin types and is high in antioxidants, including Vitamin E and Vitamin A, which protect against age-accelerating free radicals.

The flavonoid polyphenols in olive oil are natural anti-oxidants which have been shown to have a host of beneficial effects, including healing sunburned skin. It also has antibacterial properties and the ability to inhibit substances that lead to inflammation.

Olive oil has been used by women as a cosmetic for thousands of years. We use extra virgin because it hasn’t been refined and conserves all of its’ nutritional values.

Organic Beeswax

is a nutrient-rich substance secreted by bees in order to make honeycomb. A recent study found that unfiltered beeswax contains 300 micronutrients. We include it in our formulations to soften and hydrate the skin while creating a long-lasting protective coating against the elements.

Beeswax contains wax esters that also exist in human skin. It is a natural hydrating agent that increases essential moisture in the skin. Beeswax has a very low irritation potential, is an antiseptic and promotes healing and softening of the skin. It is a naturally nourishing moisturizer as well as being anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, antiallergenic and a germicidal antioxidant.

Beeswax obtains its golden color from the propolis and bee pollen inside, both also known for their incredible health benefits.

The beeswax helps lock in your skin’s own moisture, nourishes skin cells and creates a barrier against the destruction caused by our environment. Beeswax is one of the oldest and purest natural waxes. For hundreds of years, it has been used in creams, lipsticks and other cosmetics. It is also edible in small amounts and has been used to coat foods and medicines.

Organic Wilelaiki Honey

Honey has been known for centuries to heal wounds and treat infection. It is antioxidant, antibiotic, antiviral and contains anti-inflammatory properties. When water is combined with honey, hydrogen peroxide is released in small amounts over time so that the antibiotic effect on your skin works slowly and very gently, making it ideal for sensitive skin. This helps greatly to reduce blemishes and pimples. Honey also stimulates collagen production, which is very important in the reduction of fine lines and wrinkles. Known also for its antioxidant properties, honey is a free-radical scavenger- it neutralizes damaging free radicals at the molecular level. Honey is also a humectant (it attracts and retains moisture), and acts as an anti-irritant thus removing dirt and impurities without stripping the skin of natural oils. It contains minerals, vitamins, and natural enzymes, which nourish skin and help to refine skin texture. 

Our organic, raw, unfiltered honey comes from the island of Hawaii. It contains pollen, propolis and royal jelly (click to learn more). 

Organic Palmarosa Essential Oil (Cymbopogon martinii)

This is the grass that aspires to be a rose - and at a fraction of the cost! With its rich distribution of rose alcohols, rose esters and rose aldehydes, palmarosa is truly under-appreciated for both its complex aroma and the beneficial properties inherent in this arrangement of molecules. 

Its lemony-rose like softness is both soothing and astringent. Palmarosa essential oil regulates skin moisture and oil production, allowing the body to retain moisture in the tissues. This benefits cell renewal, relieves inflammation and keeps skin soft, hydrated and youthful. 

Organic German Chamomile Oil (Matricaria recutica) 

This beneficial essential oil penetrates deep into the layers of your skin where its potent anti-inflammatory action can restore and soothe irritated skin, mouth ulcers, burns, bruises and other skin conditions.

German chamomile essential oil assists in healing acne by removing toxins and cleansing sebaceous and eccrine glands. 

The Lotion Face & Body also comes in an Extra Sensitive formula (without any essential oils) and in a version specifically formulated for men, ManKine (with different essential oils).
