10 Best Chemical-free Body Lotions to treat dry skin

Your skin deserves the best care available. A good body lotion hydrates the skin and leaves it supple and smooth without cracking. This article is focused on getting you the 10 best chemical-free body lotions available in India.

Best Chemical-Free Body Lotions

Dry, peeling, and cracking skin in winter is almost as inevitable as the cold weather. No matter how many products you switch or how many brands you swap, keeping your skin moisturised and hydrated can be one hell of a task. To alleviate your distress over dry skin and chemical-based beauty products, we have come up with a listing of the best chemical-free body lotions for dry skin in India.

Harmful chemicals in almost all beauty products flooding the market have been quite harsh not only on your skin but also on your pockets. Regular chemical-based beauty products aggravate dryness rather than conciliate its effects. They may hydrate the skin briefly, but the organic, natural lotions lock the moisture in like no other. These products can induce several skin ailments, especially in people with eczema and rosacea. 

Yes, chemical as well as cruelty-free! Let’s look at the best organic body lotions in India for dry skin.
