No preservatives or other additives ?
Isn’t it weird, that natural cosmetics may contain up to 60% NON-natural ingredients ?
The formula of this lotion-to-shake is actually vintage.
Vintage in a very good way.
With this lotion 0.00 chemical components land on your skin.
With this lotion YOU ARE THE EMULSIFIER !
What is a cream or a lotion actually made of ?
Oil and water (plus a ton of additives for production purposes, a ton of preservatives to keep it to look, feel and smell exactly the same over a long time period).
In order to mix water and oil you need a so-called “emulsifier”.
Dermatologists know, that emulsifiers are anything but an enrichment to our skin.
Especially to affected or sensitive skin.
Application of “lotion-to-shake”
I – as the user – mix the watery and oily part of this lotion purely mechanically.
And therefore shake the bottle vigourosly two to three times just before spraying it onto my freshly washed hands or directly onto my face.
Then I rub the mixture into my (preferably) damp – skin.
I repeat this process until I feel sufficiently nourished.
Sensitive and dry skin
Blue glass bottle with white spray head
If you use three “spray doses” each day as per my description, the bottle will last about 10 weeks – maybe 12 (depends on how much force you use when spraying).
Unfortunately, this is impossible for hygienic reasons.
But you can collect all my glass containers and return them: click
Without hesitation, the lotion-to-shake can be stored in the bathroom.
