ditch the lotions. supplement with plant oils.
Healthy skin has a healthy lipid barrier that serves as your first line of defense against external pathogens and impurities and is responsible for retaining moisture in the underlying skin. Lipid barrier damage often results in dry, irritated, inflamed skin. Water based moisturizers (lotions) are notoriously guilty of containing ingredients that disrupt and damage the lipid barrier. We never use water in our moisturizers and maintain synthetic free formulas with zero preservatives, fragrances, fillers, etc. All Whole Body Apothecary moisturizers are formulated with certified organic oils that complement each other to provide a full spectrum of fatty acids (short, medium and long chain), including significant sources of omega 3&9 essential fatty acids. This variety provides short and long term moisture, protection and healing properties.
super nutrition & moisture.
Whether you have perfectly hydrated skin or a desert for an epidermis, this moisturizer will far outperform anything you have tried before.
- Light moisturizer & unrefined nutritional supplement
- Easiest transition from lotions to oils (fast absorbing, non "greasy" formula)
- Zero harsh ingredients: best option for sensitive skin, eczema, dermatitis, etc.
- Strengthen the skin's natural ability to retain its own moisture (NMF)
fast absorbing formula.
Some people are afraid of oil moisturizers leaving a "greasy feeling" on the surface of their skin. This isn't always true. While many oil moisturizers will feel "greasy", the key to a fast absorbing formula is balance. Our Body Serum is full spectrum to provide the skin with a well balanced super supplement. With high quality lipids in the right ratios, this oil moisturizer is faster absorbing than the majority of lotions while delivering far superior nutritional value.
extra virgin is better.
It's common practice in the skin care industry to heavily refine (process) plant oils (even certified organic products). The refining process makes an odorless, thinner, more neutral oil to make products more consistent in color, texture and scent throughout production. This process also strips a large amount of the plant's nutritional value (vitamins, minerals, proteins, polyphenols, photosterols and other micro-nutrients)
Our products are crafted with extra virgin, unrefined plant oils that provide a dense variety of nutrition. This is why our products may vary in color from batch to batch. The slight variations, in color and scent, of our products are caused by the slight variations of the plants themselves from harvest to harvest. These differences are mostly influenced by environment (rainfall, temperature, soil composition, time of the year, etc.) Extra virgin unrefined oils retain nutrition that feeds and strengthens your skin.

This serum is awesome! I've used oils before but this combination is the best because it soaks into my skin very well and surprisingly keeps me moisturized for a full 24hr. I'm impressed with the little amount of serum I use and its ability to keep my skin moisturized that long because it's normal fairly dry and somewhat tight feeling (example I'd bend over and skin on my back would feel as if my skin over stretched and it was tearing, so it hurt a little bit). Another plus is being able to simplify my beauty routine which is a must when I have a 7 month old dictating my every move :D, I just take a shower, apply this serum to my wet skin and step out of the shower pretty much dry and definitely moisturized. So glad I came across Whole Body Apothecary, all their products are awesome (face cleanse, deodorant, face serum, soap). Thank you for creating all of these amazing products!!!
I’ve been using it a week and I love it. I would like to use this rather than lotion and I always love getting packages from your company !!!
I. Love. This stuff. A little goes a long way, it is beautifully absorbed by the skin, leaving you soft & supple, but never greasy! Plus, the scent is perfect, not overpowering! (I alternate between Lavender & Mint and Grapefruit & Bergamot.)
I’ve completely cut lotion out of my life after trying this and the face serum. Skin looks and feels so much better since switching to these products - and the scent is incredible (though subtle.)
