Trending across the interwebs is the big question – What is solid lotion?

Although not new to Indulge Pure Originals, as we have been expertly crafting solid lotion bars since 2011, the concept of a solid lotion is foreign to many!

Before we can define solid lotion, we must start with – what is lotion.

The Definition of Lotion

According to the dictionary provided by, lotion is defined as
“a thick, smooth liquid preparation designed to be applied to the skin for medicinal or cosmetic purposes.”

Typically, lotion is a lighter weight substance applied to the skin to relieve, prevent, or treat dry skin, hydrate skin, or protect skin from external factors. Often, lotion is “liquidy” and comes packaged in a bottle, jar, tub, tube, or pump.

Solid lotion, or “hard lotion” has a lower water content (if any!) and is comprised of mostly butters and oils. Solid lotion tends to last longer due to the ingredients and usage.

What’s In A Solid Lotion?

Indulge Pure Originals Body Butter Bars™ offers a couple different types of solid lotion bars comprised of mainly the same ingredients: Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Sweet Almond Oil.

The best-seller and fan-favorite is the Cocoa Butter Body Butter Bar™ .This “gold” bar as we lovingly refer to it, is a luxurious solid lotion bar that is heat-activated, designed for use in the shower, bath, or under warm-running water at the sink, and melts gloriously on warm skin.

The Citrus Body Butter Bar™ is another favorite as the scent is uplifting, citrusy, and full of life! It really energizes you as you begin your day. Comprised of Shea Butter, Soy, and Vitamin E, this lotion bar leaves you feeling hydrated and happy.

The Coconut Body Butter Bar™ is a trip to the tropics! This particular lotion bar is a favorite with Men as it has a light scent, not over-powering, and it gets the job done. Made with high-quality Shea Butter, Soy, and Vitamin E, skin is moisturized and smooth.

For sensitive skin or sensitivity to scent, the Unscented Body Butter Bar™ is a wonderful option. With no added scent, deodorized Cocoa Butter, Shea Butter, and Vitamin E, this lotion bar is definitely sensitive-skin loving!

How Do You Use A Solid Lotion?

Body Butter Bars™, or solid lotion bars, are so simple and easy-to-use. After cleansing in the shower or bath, hold you bar under the warm, running water. As the bar begins to soften, glide the bar over your skin, covering all areas. There is no need to rinse, simply turn off the water, and pat your skin dry with a towel or air dry.

Body Butter Bars™ may also be used at the sink after cleansing your hands. Hold your bar under the warm, running water and allow the bar to soften. Rub the bar over your hands and massage into your hands and cuticles the skin-loving ingredients. Do not rinse. Simply pat your hands dry with a towel.

I made a simple video on how to use a solid lotion bar. Check it out here.

Can Anyone Use A Solid Lotion?

Solid lotion is for anyone and everyone! For those who just love for their skin to be silky smooth to those who have challenges with dry, cracked skin, eczema, psoriasis, acne, or flaking skin, the Body Butter Bars™ are really for everyone. The purposeful ingredients in the lotion bars are meant to heal, repair, and hydrate dry, damaged skin.

Growing up with using “regular” lotion to making the switch to solid lotion can be a little bit of a transition, but it is SO worth it – your skin will experience hydration like it’s never experienced before.
