Our vocabulary for moisturizers has grown over the years to include lotions, creams, ointments, serums, body butters, salves etc. but the basic premise has stayed the same. Our bodies are exposed daily to elements that can dry out skin and moisturizers help us keep our skin glowing and soft. Emulsifying water to oil is one of the most popular ways to create a moisturizer, but think outside the box. Spray-able body oil, which is a mixture of different hydrating oils, is an upcoming trend in the industry. Body oil gives instant moisture to skin, and many prefer it to lotion because a preservative is not required. Experiment with new butters, oils and different processes to make a luxurious moisturizer. Find inspiration from some of our favorite recipes, kits and ingredients below.
