What's in the lotion bars?

What is a Lotion Bar? It is lotion that is solid at room temperature that is designed to be activated by body heat. They are made with just three ingredients... some sort of wax, butter and oil. quinTESSence Lotion Barstm are made with organic beeswax, organic coconut oil, apricot oilmango butter and essential oils.  Some specialty bars have additional healing ingredients like jojoba oil, almond oil, avocado oil, cocoa butter or vitamin E.  Typically a lotion bar is used for healing and protecting hands and feet but can be used on other parts of the body as well. (Try out the Lotion Sticks for the entire body)


All Lotion Bars are made from scratch in small batches without pre-made bases and are petroleum free. This has allowed me to find the perfect combination of all-natural ingredients with healing properties that also feels smooth and silky on the skin. Creative quinTESSence does offer products with tree nuts. While we take steps to minimize the risk of cross contamination, we cannot guarantee that any of our products are safe for people with tree nut allergies.


Beeswax creates a protective barrier that helps seal the moisture into the skin. Unlike petroleum jelly which suffocates the skin, beeswax lets it breathe.  I use Local Wisconsin Beeswax from Dane County and love that I am supporting other small businesses. Plus it smells awesome! 


The healing properties of coconut oil include anti-fungal and antibacterial and is an excellent moisturizer for your skin. Apricot oil is full of vitamin A and E to soothe and slow down the aging process with it's anti-inflammatory effect. Avocado oil has the same anti-inflammatory properties and is used for its antioxidants and essential fatty acids.

Mango butter, a natural source of vitamin A, antioxidants and is lighter than Shea butter. Cocoa butter has a smooth cocoa scent and is high in fatty acids, as well as rich in vitamins E and K. 

Everything that goes into quinTESSence Lotion Bars is all-natural with beneficial  properties -- even the essential oils. Many of the oils have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.
