FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1. What is a lotion bar?
A lotion bar is a solid body butter. It is made without any water or emulsifiers, making it an intensely rich moisturizer that is great for the skin particularly if you spend long hours in dry, air-conditioned spaces.
2. What is it made of?
Our nice+sexy lotion bars are made from all-organic shea butter, cocoa butter, coconut oil, cold-pressed virgin olive oil, Vitamin E and natural beeswax. Where possible we locally-sourced the ingredients; the imported ones are from West Africa. The lavender and rose variants contain dried lavender grains and rosebuds as well as essential oils from Provence, France. The unscented variant will have natural cocoa and shea butter smell which will remind you of chocolates. Do not eat the lotion bars no matter how tempting it may smell!
3. What is beeswax?
Beeswax is the wax secreted by bees to make honeycombs. It is a natural emollient that we use as the base for all our lotion bars to improve the stability and heat-resistance of the delicate butters and oils mixture.
4. How do I use a lotion bar?
The nice+sexy lotion bars have low melting point due to its high content of butters. Warm it slightly in your palms and then apply liberally onto your skin as you would liquid lotion. It will leave a sheen of buttery moisture barrier on your skin which is especially good for dry areas like elbows, heels, knees and calves. You can also use it as an after-shave balm, to soften cuticles and moisturize hair ends. For best result, use lotion bars as an in-shower moisturizer — the steam from your shower will open up pores and help the butters penetrate, seal and protect your skin. After a few applications, you will notice an improvement in smoothness and softness of your skin. Warning: using lotion bars can be addictive!
5. How long can I keep the lotion bars?
As it does not contain any additive or preservatives, it is best used within 30 days of un-boxing. The lotion bars will not go bad or rancid beyond 30 days, but it may lose its shape and nice smell as the essential oils dissipates. It has been known to last up to a year without losing its moisturizing potency.
