Body Cream Workshops

Good Morning Everyone,

Today's post will focus on body creams.
As we all know, body creams and lotion, in this day and age, are essential to healthy, youthful skin.  They don't just moisturise and hydrate the skin but create a protective barrier over it.  This protective layer prevents dirt and many other particles from entering your pores, which could create various skin problems.  This helps you maintain a smooth skin and even skin tone whilst simultaneously keeping your skin full of the moisture it needs.  
Our skin is exposed to so many factors that are detrimental to its health and the use of a moisturiser will definitely allow you to keep your skin at its best.  
Now there are many different types of creams and lotions available commercially.  These will certainly do the trick momentarily but will cause issues in the longterm as many of the formulas contain ingredients that are not only unnecessary but also harmful.  It's a catch 22, protect your skin whilst harming it...  Makes me wonder!!!  
The one true thing though is that unprotected skin is worse than those commercial products.
Whilst most commercial cosmetics manufacturers are concerned on costs and marketability, which of course is a serious factor, others just capitalise on the brand.  At the end of the day, what goes in the products is the same.  We all know that but we don't know what else to do.  Well honestly, I've also wondered what were my options and this engaged my search for a natural alternative.  After many a test, failure and success, frustration and absolute joy, I have found an alternative.  Tah Dah!!!  
The Body Bar Natural Body Cream (Autumn)
This body cream contains Shea butter, Sweet Almond oil, Olive oil, Wheatgerm oil, Coconut oil, Aloe Vera gel and Vitamin E.  It is hydrating and leaves the skin feeling velvety, smooth and soft.  
In this one cream, I've added a couple of drops of Cranberry and Vanilla Fragrance.  I just love the smell of berry-sweet things.  

Now this is the formula that will be demonstrated and made on The Body Bar workshop on deodorants and body creams.  Like I mentioned yesterday, these 2 products form part of the same workshop.  The first session will focus on the creams and the second session will handle everything about deodorants.  This workshop lasts 3 hours and costs R400.  All participants will make the products and also get to keep them.  For reference, The Body Bar manual 3 will be given to you as well.  The first workshop is on the morning of the 6th of April and the second workshop is on the afternoon/evening of the 13th of April.  Hope to see you there as I will be facilitating the workshop.  Both will be held in Westville.
