If you’re looking for the perfect unscented body lotion, look no further than John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion—a new staff favorite at Natural Home & Garden. This lightweight lotion absorbs well and doesn’t leave your skin feeling greasy or clogged, making it a good fit for all skin types. Its fragrance-free formula will also keep your head clear—no scents to make you feel dizzy or nauseous!

John Masters Organcis Bare Unscented LotionJohn Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion is made with nine certified organic ingredients that help moisturize, soften and heal all skin types. Sea kelp and aloe vera hydrate, soften and soothe, while coconut oil and vanilla heal, repair and help keep moisture in. Milk thistle, white tea and comfrey lend this lotion antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, respectively. The Bare Unscented Lotion is also free of GMOs, parabens, sodium laurel sulfate, DEAs, TEAs, MEAs, and artificial colors and fragrances.

Although the Environmental Working Group’s Skin Deep database doesn’t include the John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion, the company itself received an overall score of 2, putting it in the “low hazard” range. The majority of the lotion’s ingredients scored in the “low hazard” range with a few—lecithin, cyamopsis tetragonoloba (guar) gum, and potassium sorbate—earning scores of “moderate hazard,” and one ingredient, retinyl palmitate, receiving a “high hazard” marking. (Retinyl palmitate, a form of vitamin A, is often used in personal care products for its anti-aging effects. Unfortunately, this ingredient can also speed up the development of skin tumors when exposed to the sun. We recommend wearing the lotion on days where you expect to experience low sun exposure if this is something that concerns you.)

John Masters Organics Bare Unscented Body Lotion costs $16.50 for an 8-ounce bottle and can be purchased at
