FAT AND THE MOON || ALOE LOTION
Fat and the Moon's Aloe lotion was concocted in the thick of a cold, dry and relentless Brooklyn winter. Though the ingredients are gentle, this lotion showed no remorse to our dry and chapped hands and faces. We've been slathering it on ever since. This unscented lotion can be used for face and body alike. Aloe hydrates and blocks UV rays while the coconut oil holds in moisture and protects the skin, so it's fantastic for summer bummers like sun burn.** Sunflower oil is rich in Oleic acid and is high in vitamins A, D and E which nourishes dry and damaged skin.
In terms of comparison, the Aloe Lotion is to the All Cream as sour cream is to cream cheese. Yum. This lotion is my absolute go to for my sensitive skin peoples.
**The ultimate summer bummer combo would be the Aloe Lotion and Bite & Burn Spray for pre/post sun fun care, btws.
Best when used within 3 months out of fridge (6 months in the fridge) of purchasing. Fat and the Moon doesn't dabble in chemicals that make things last forever.

And if you were wondering why 'Fat and the Moon'....
Fat as the first word in the name of my business has gotten me in some interesting discussions. People ask me about the name all the time because they can hardly believe I would use a word that has such negative connotations, especially when it is used within ‘beauty care’.
In part, I use the word ‘fat’ to be provocative; I don’t believe fat is a dirty word. But most of the fat in Fat and the Moon comes from my love of the material- oil is the medium of external herbal medicine. Fat in the form of oil, is the gift of the seed. Fat, both in plants and animals, is where energy is stored. The richness we taste in food, and the suppleness we feel on our skin after a good slather of bath oil, is our bodies recognition of and pleasure in that vital energy. Oil from plants, in and of itself, is medicinal. I feel honored as a medicine maker to indulge in the play of fat and herbs, especially under the influence of the moon.
