Fragrance-Free Lotions Without Aloe Vera
When you’re sensitive to fragrance, either because the scent bothers you or because your skin can’t take it, turn to fragrance-free products. I prefer fragrance-free because I’m sensitive to scents- I’m the first to smell cigarette smoke or something unsavory and the first to choke on the cloud of perfume some ladies leave behind.
The perfume counters in department stores are like a minefield.. I walk around it or run through it. Needless to say, I feel your struggle! These are my picks for fragrance-free lotions.
These fragrance-free lotions are aloe free, cruelty-free and vegan
As always, double check the ingredients before purchasing as formulations can change.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Cream
Oh FAB, let me count the ways I love you! Full disclosure: this First Aid Beauty cream is only free from artificial fragrances (there is Eucalyptus Globulus Leaf Oil in it) but I use it on a regular basis and smell nothing. It’s incredibly soothing and tackles dry/irritated skin with ease.
Ceramedx Ultra Moisturizing Cream
Meet the cruelty-free, vegan twin of Cerave- Ceramedx. A completely separate company that caters to sensitive skin in need of ceramides (replenishment for your epidermis), this fragrance-free and gluten-free cream is a dream come true. I was on topical prescription acne medication for years and only used Cerave. When I ditched the Rx for more natural skincare, I searched high and low for a cruelty-free and vegan version of Cerave. It is here now and I’m so excited!
Baja Baby Unscented Lotion
With the EWG stamp of approval, this unscented baby lotion is free of sulfates, parabens and phosphates. Safe for newborns, but also family friendly!
Attitude Natural Soothing Body Cream
Approval by EWG and The National Eczema Association is nothing to sneeze at. That, combined with this lotion’s 2% colloidal oatmeal, means no crusty or irritated elbows, knuckles or knees.
