Chemical-free moisturizing substitutes for skin and hair can seem a little daunting when there are so many lovely smelling products that seem to moisturize well and leave a pleasant scent behind. However, many lotions, makeup, hair products, and perfumes contain chemicals that are absorbed into the skin which cause toxic build-up in our bodies. I love these smell-good products too, but are they the best solution for our bodies in the long run? Here's a list of simple and chemical-free moisturizing products that are well suited to give you shiny, healthy hair and supple, smooth skin!
1. Coconut Oil
The first substance on the list is organic coconut oil. This oil is superb for just about anything and perfect for chemical-free moisturizing! It's solid at room temperature so it's easily transported. It works so well for a deep moisturizing solution for your skin. For a hair mask treatment, you can do dry application before a shampoo, focusing on the ends where it's most dry, and letting it soak in for 15-20 min. Shampoo well to avoid any greasy residue. My favorite use for coconut oil (besides cooking) is a lip moisturizer! It's dense and shiny, and eventually absorbs into your lips leaving them soft and chapped-free.
