Here is a complete detailed list of all the ingredients in our lotion.
Organic Shea Butter is chocked full of naturally occurring Vitamin A, E, and F.  Shea butter is a particularly effective moisturizer because contains so many fatty acids, which are needed to retain skin moisture and elasticity.  It may also help diminish wrinkles by moisturizing the skin, promoting cell renewal, and increasing circulation. Shea butter also contains acid, a substance that helps protect the skin from harmful UV rays. 
Organic Aloe Juice has a well-deserved reputation for soothing and healing sunburns, and its packed nutrients that help strengthen and nourish your skin.  Aloe Vera Juice acts as a natural barrier and shields our skin from dangerous toxins.
Vegetable Glycerin is a compound that comes from vegetable oil, usually palm or coconut. It has strong humectant properties, meaning it is able to retain moisture.  There are many anti-aging benefits when using vegetable glycerin. Its excellent moisturizing properties aid in keeping skin looking young and healthy. Retaining moisture is vital for keeping skin in its best condition. It also draws oxygen into the skin, which is beneficial for anti-aging as well. There are many factors that cause dry skin and accelerate aging, and vegetable glycerin is an effective agent against these elements. 
Organic Soybean Oil helps in restoring the luster and impart glow to the skin. It helps in healing the damage that is done to the skin by pollution or sun exposure.  Soybean oil contains specific antioxidants which helps in maintaining the skin health and gives the skin special glow.  Antioxidant such as vitamin E and Vitamin B complex prevents the development of appearance of wrinkles.
Vitamin E is known as the "skin vitamin." Vitamin E reduces the appearance of age spots. For prevention and treatment, take as a supplement and also apply directly to skin.  Vitamin E is a filter that prevents UV rays from damaging skin. It also can be put on sunburns to heal skin quickly without permanent damage. Vitamin E is an anti-aging moisturizer. Apply to skin daily to reduce and prevent wrinkle.
Phenoxyethanol is an organic chemical compound, a glycol ether often used in dermatological products such as skin creams and sunscreen.  Phenoxyethanol is non-paraben, non-formaldehyde preservative that we believe to be the gentlest effective preservative available today.
Caprylyl Glycol is a mixture of glycerin, caprylic acid, and capric acid. An emollient ester derived from coconut oil with good lubricating and spreading properties. Helps products to glide on the skin.
Stearic Acid is a naturally derived from soybeans, this waxy solid substance acts an emulsifier and thickener for the lotion.
Emulsifying Wax NF is a plant based emulsifier used to create a bond between oil and water, forming an emulsion.  Vegetable-based and without any petroleum products, this emulsifying wax allows the lotion to stay smooth and creamy in texture without separating. This particular emulsifying wax is NF approved and is the global choice for emulsifying compounds.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Shea Butter, Organic Aloe Juice, Vegetable Glycerin, Organic Soybean Oil, Vitamin E, Emulsifying Wax (plant based emulsifier), Phenoxyethanol (organic preservative), Stearic Acid (thickener) and Caprylyl (anti-bacterial preservative).
