This body lotion has been reformulated but now includes a potentially problematic amount of SD-alcohol. The alcohol is not likely to make skin feel dry because the overall formula is loaded with emollients and non-fragrant plant oils, but it’s less compelling than the previous formula, and despite still being fragrance-free, isn’t rated as highly.
Organic Green Tea helps protect and repair skin with high levels of antioxidants and polyphenols. Vitamin E and Organic Jojoba oil penetrate into the skin without leaving an oily residue, leaving skin feeling smooth and silky.
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf (Aloe Vera) Juice, Camellia Sinensis (Green Tea) Leaf Extract, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, SD Alcohol 38-B, Glycerin (Palm), Hydrolyzed Jojoba Esters, Jojoba Esters, Stearic Acid (Coconut), Cetyl Alcohol (Coconut), Leuconostoc Radish Root Ferment Filtrate, Helianthus Annuus (Sunflower) Seed Oil, Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Tocopherol (Vitamin E), Lonicera Japonica (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Lonicera Caprifolium (Honeysuckle) Flower Extract, Xanthan Gum, Sodium Phytate, Water (Aqua).
