A lotion bar is a solid moisturizer. It bears resemblance to a soap bar, but it functions as a lotion. Usually made out of natural ingredients, lotion bars stay solid as long as they are kept at room temperature or lower. They’re activated by body heat and can be used anywhere on the body.
Typically, lotion bars are composed of all-natural ingredients. Shea butter, beeswax, jojoba oil, avocado oil, almond oil, mango butter, hemp seed oil and butter and essential oils are a few common ingredients. Lotion bars have a reputation for being a health-conscious choice because they are free from the potentially hazardous chemicals found in commercial lotion products, such as phthalates, parabens, formaldehyde, para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA), ethanolamines and petroleum.
Using a lotion bar is easy; those who want to moisturize their bodies simply twist the bottom of the olotion bar stick and the lotion bar comes up. Rub the lotion bar onto the skin and the heat emanating from the lotion bar will melt a small portion of the bar. From there, users can rub the lotion onto the body part that needs moisturizing. Some who use lotion bars apply lotion only to their hands. Others, however, might use the bar to moisturize their feet, ankles, knees, legs, arms, elbows or any other area that hasdry skin.
Another way to use the lotion bar is to apply the bar directly to areas in need of moisturizing. The bar can be rubbed on these areas until it heats and softens and some lotion transfers to the skin. The friction from the rubbing, combined with the heat from the user’s skin, can give good results. This method is popularly used on the heels or other especially dry or tough areas that could benefit from direct application.
The benefit of applying a hard lotion before one sleeps is that the lotion has all night to penetrate the skin, and the wearer can wake up feeling soft and smooth. Certain techniques that can increase the bar’s moisturizing properties also can be implemented. For example, users can apply the bar to their feet and then put on socks; the warmth provided by the socks can help the lotion penetrate the outer layers of the skin.

How We Got Started
Soapworks soaps was created because of a sincere concern about the harsh chemicals present in skin care products and the adverse effects of these chemicals on us, our children and our planet.
Soapworks was started by a young woman named Harini Sivakumar who is a banker turned entrepreneur. Soap making was her passion and hobby. During the initial days, she used to make a few batches of soaps just for home use and to gift them to friends and relatives. Over a period of time, the demand for these soaps started to develop and had a lot of requests on custom orders. The hobby gradually grew into a small home run business and now into a manufacturing unit. Harini also has her studio at Sector 47, Gurgaon, Haryana where she formulates her unique recipes and also retails out.
The USP of the products is that they are 100% natural and chemical free. The colorants used arebotanical (indigo powder, arrowroot powder, spirulina powder) and micas, and the fragrances used are essential oils and fragrances that are plant based and chemical free.
Today, at soapworks there is a huge selection of bath and body products. People have become more aware of the harmful effects of the chemicals these bigger MNCs use in their products are slowly turning to natural and organic living. People love my soaps and I find joy and I get utmost satisfaction when people say their skin feels very good after using a Soapworks product.
