Complete Guide To The Best Natural Lotion For Dry Skin

Sometimes the basic moisturizer you get at your average convenience store just doesn't cut it. Sure, for most people, a lotion full of parabens and synthetic fragrances is just fine (although it will do you damage in the long run!).

But if you’re someone like me and you have super sensitive skin, then maybe, just maybe this article will help you. According to the American Academy of Dermatology, as much as 50% of the population of the US will experiences skin sensitivity issues during their lifetime. 

Even if you’re not someone with sensitive skin, you’ll be happy to know that all of these natural lotions are perfect for everyone in your family and safe for your children.

I’ve broken down the best natural lotions on the market, so let’s get down to it!

Premium Taza Natural Coconut Hand & Body Lotion

Premium Taza Natural Coconut Lotion

We’ll start this review off with one of the heavy hitters, Taza Natural Coconut Lotion. This is a premium lotion with no phthalates, gluten, or sulfates.

All of those fancy words basically mean that it’s free of all synthetic and artificial ingredients that you would normally find within regular lotion. Aswell as not containing the bad stuff, its packed full of the good stuff!

For example, this lotion is made of a blend of Shea butter, coconut oil, almond oil, and sunflower oil. These essential oils protect your skin from the sun without any other harmful chemicals generally found in sun-tan lotion.

For only around twenty bucks, you can check it out here.

Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion

Alba Botanica Emollient Lotion

In second place on our ‘Natural Lotion’ list comes ‘Alba Botanica’. In the winter months, I personally have quite the issue with my dry skin so this lotion really helps me out. It’s directed specifically towards those with severely dry skin.

It does this by being full of alpha hydroxy acids which have been scientifically proven to reduce wrinkles as well as soften strong, defined lines.

Luckily for us, the alpha hydroxy acids that are included in this lotion are derived from natural sources.

To top it off, this product is completely guilt-free with no animal testing and it has a one-hundred percent vegetarian ingredient only guarantee. Here’s a link to check it out for yourself.

Hempz Original Herbal Body Moisturizer

Hempz Original Herbal Body Butter

Before you freak out about the name of this product, NO it does not get you high. Hempz includes natural hemp oil that does not contain THC, which is what has an effect on your brain.

You can apply this all you want without worrying. This is another great ‘guilt free’ natural lotion, meaning it's one-hundred percent vegan.

Along with the amazing effects of hemp oil, this product also comes jampacked full of vitamins A, C, and E, all incredibly important for the health of our skin.

You could almost compare this lotion to a natural cream because the lotions work deep into your skin to condition it, leaving it looking bright and healthy. Just see for yourself here.

EO Everyone Lotion, Coconut plus Lemon

EO Everyone Lotion

This product is really a family orientated lotion, meaning it's perfect for everyone in your family, whether it's man, woman or child. Forget about buying multiple lotions, that's just unnecessary.

This lotion is real bang for your buck. The formula is perfect for face, hands, and body. Along with being perfect for pretty much anyone, it actually has a nice fragrance to it while still being gentle.

Of course it's full of the essential oils our skin needs but it's also free of parabens, polysorbates, and disodium EDTA.

EO is proud that their product is ‘cruelty-free’ meaning all of the ingredients have been derived from plants. See for yourself right here.

Burt’s Bees Fragrance-Free Shea Butter

Burt's Bees Shea Butter

One of the best-known natural lotions out there, Burt’s Bees is always a solid choice. The only reason it’s at number five is because it's only 98.9% natural, while the others listed are at least 99%.

So what makes this lotion so special you may ask?

Well for starters, it's one of the few natural lotions that actually has been clinically tested and shown to work for up to twenty-four hours. No need to reapply! Just hop out of the shower, apply some ‘Burt’s Bees’, and you’ll have smooth skin all day.

Along with being clinically tested, it's guaranteed to be hypoallergenic. You really can’t go wrong with this trusted lotion.


So let’s wrap things up. We all know that regular lotions just aren’t that good for us in the long run, especially if we have sensitive skin. Luckily for us, there are plenty of solid choices to choose from.

Whether you’re someone that’s got severe dry skin or you’re a parent that wants to protect themselves as well as their loved ones, there’s a lotion for you.

Natural creams full of Shea butter, hemp oil, sunflower seed oil, coconut oil, and much more can all help us get the healthy glowing skin we really deserve.

So don’t worry! Just take your pick from the list above and you’ll definitely be pleased with the results.
