Review: Tropical Traditions Organic Citris Moisturizing Lotion

Filipinos are well-known for their youthful appearance and soft skin, even though they live in a climate that exposes them to the sun’s rays year round. Coconut oil is their main dietary oil, and is also the main ingredient in their skin care products.

All of the moisturizing lotions that Tropical Traditions offers are made with organic Virgin Coconut Oil and Virgin Palm Oil. No other products on the market are made with finer oils as their base. Tropical Traditionsindependent laboratory tests show that it has a higher level of antioxidants than other coconut oils. Virgin Coconut Oil is traditionally made from fresh organic coconuts, and

Virgin Palm Oil contains high concentrations of a powerful form of Vitamin E called “tocotrienols” which published research has shown is 40–60 times more potent than alpha-tocopherol (the most common form of Vitamin E found as an additive in most skin care products.) In addition to these powerful Vitamin E tocotrienols, Virgin Palm Oil is also rich in natural carotenes. It is one of the richest natural plant sources of carotenes with concentrations of 500–700 ppm. It is 15 times more retinol-equivalent than carrots and 300 times more than tomatoes, for example.

The Tropical Traditions Organic Citris Moisturizing Lotion is so soft.  I can't think of a better way to describe it.  Some lotions feel oily or harsh while rubbing it in.  This lotion is not like that at all.  It's a satin-type feeling that makes your arms and legs feel brand-new.

8 oz. bottle costs $21.50

I love the scent of coconut oil. I know this is not the one you bake with but I really like theirs that I bake with.

I found it very interesting that the palm oil has a more powerful form of Vitamin E than is in most products. I'm glad to know it doesn't feel greasy.

This sounds like it would help my skin which is getting drier the older I get. Plus, I like the smell of coconut
