Why choose a solid moisturiser?

Put a bar where your bottle is!

Here are our top 5 reasons to drop the lotion, change a habit and find a love for solids.


  1. The environment will thank you

It’s hard to remove plastic from our lives totally but solid body moisturisers provide a great easy opportunity to reduce the number of plastic bottles in the bathroom. 

The sleeves are made from recycled paper and are fully recyclable. And to trump that, the white wrapper (Rockstock) is fully biodegradable.  So you can be confident that by feeling good, you are doing good :)


  1. Moisture is locked in for longer

It doesn’t take long to see the difference in using a solid body moisturiser as an alternative to bottled lotion.  Within days, the skin is softer and doesn’t dry out so fast.  Why?  Solid bars are typically packed with superheroes like cocoa and shea butter.  When used on damp skin, they lock in the moisture and create a barrier.  You’ll be surprised at how you don’t need to apply as much as you think!  A little goes a long way.


  1. It just glides over the skin

It does sound too good to be true, BUT!, it isn’t!  Not only is a solid moisutriser benefiting you and the environment, it is also enjoyable.  Application of a solid moisturising bar is fun.  The butters melt as your skin warms them and just glides over the body.  You even get a little massage as you run the bar over your skin.


  1. They are pure and simple

Did you know lotions are generally 60-80% water?  When under 50% it is a cream and with no water, 0% you have a moisturising bar!  Our shining star!  The mix of ingredients is simple with no emulsifiers needed to combine the water with oil.  Solid moisturisers contain no petroleum, synthetics or alcohols.  So as an easy summary, solid bars are a concentrated lotion just full of the good stuff!


  1. The perfect travel buddy

Being solid and 85g, you can take your bars in your hand luggage with no problems.  Meaning you can keep your skin hydrated on the plane or not have to check luggage in if you don’t want to.  And being an essential for cold weather dry skin or hot sun-kissed salty skin, you definitely want to have one with you.  And for road trips and weekends away, these little bars are such a quick grab n go.  Adventuring couldn’t be easier!


That's it.  They are my top 5 reasons as to why I think solid body moisturisers are the way to go.
