Do you know what your skin is doing?

Food for thought: Our skin absorbs 60% of what we put on it. Scary, isn’t it? Read labels and know what you’re using.

Noir Naturals Goat’s Milk Lotion – always made from scratch

All of our lotions are available in travel, 4, and 8 oz. sizes.

All of our lotions are available in travel, 4, and 8 oz. sizes.

We at Noir Naturals take pride in doing things the old-fashioned way. We use only fresh goat’s milk from organically-fed goats in our goat’s milk products and only fresh coconut milk in our coconut milk soaps.  It may take longer, but we skip the shortcuts in the name of quality.  It’s the same approach we take with our goat’s milk lotions.  We skip premade lotion bases and make ours from scratch.
Premade lotion bases are not our thing. Even though the ingredients are listed on the label, companies do not list where the ingredients come from.  By making our own lotion base, we know exactly what goes into it and where all the ingredients come from.  We refuse to take shortcuts.
Back in the day, lotions were handcrafted from oils, butters, and liquids. We embrace the old way and make each batch of lotion from water, fresh raw goat’s milk, organic Shea butter, Safflower and Meadowfoam oils, emulsifying wax, Stearic Acid, and a preservative.  We make each base as we make each batch.  We add additional fragrance and essential oils for our scented lotions, and include additional moisturizing butters and oils for our Blue Angel lotions.  Our lotions are free of dyes, pigments, and parabens and are packaged as soon as each batch is ready.

View our inventory and find the right lotion for your needs.  We currently offer travel, 4 oz., and 8 oz. sizes and have a larger size coming soon.

What’s in your lotion?

How to care for your natural soap dish

A wooden soap dish is pretty and useful.  It can add a little nature to your bath decor and extend the life of your soap bars.  Keeping soap dry between use is key to making it last longer – this is especially true of natural soap.  But how do you care for the soap dish? Don’t worry – it’s easy!

All soap can leave a little gunk behind.  It’s unattractive, but easy to clean.

Dish before

Just run a towel or cleaning rag through the grooves to clean out the gunk and rinse.  Or just run it through the dishwasher.  Let it sit and dry.

Dish when wet

Once it dries, it’s ready to hold your favorite bar of soap again.

Dish when dried

Noir Naturals’ Cypress Wooden Soap Dish is durable, attractive, and has deep grooves that help soap drain well.  It fits in nicely in the kitchen or bath and is just and lasts a long time with proper care.  Get yours for just $4 each and perk up your decor while extending the life of your soap.

How about a contest?
