Is there such a thing as “A Simple And Effective Moisturizing Body Lotion” anymore? We believe there is, and we have one here today for you by SW Basics. You know how lots of lotions and moisturizers leave you needing more, like ten minutes after you put them on? That’s because they use water as a base. When it evaporates, you dry out all over again.
SW Basics starts with wild-harvested shea butter they get from a fair trade women’s cooperative in Ghana. They then add some organic extra-virgin coconut oil and organic extra-virgin olive oil. That’s it, nothing more! So it’s extremely rich, sinking deep into the skin and staying there. And it’s just as awesome on your face as it is on your body

Moisturizing Cream by SW Basics Review
We have definitely reviewed a lot of lotions and body creams here at Organic Makeup Reviews, and while we love them all, none of them had just 3 ingredients like SW Basic’s Cream. Simple = wonderful, right? Definitely.
Shea butter? Check. Coconut oil? Check. Olive oil? You bet! And that’s it!! And, wow, do those three simply ingredients really work!
This natural, but effective, cream is absolutely perfect on all areas of your body, including the face. If you have dry, itchy patches of skin from the cold winter weather, then just dab a bit of this thick cream and say goodbye to dryness.
If you’re a first time user of these types of very natural, simple products, then the texture may be slightly strange at first.
This cream will start feeling a bit heavy/oily -but don’t worry, just give it a minute and it will absorb right into your skin without making a greasy mess. Won’t clog your pores, or leave your skin with a residue. Use for face, hands and body. Made from all natural and organic ingredients… and no animal products!
Application: I like to warm it up gently in my hands before applying as this makes it go on a bit smoother -and remember a very little bit goes a long way, so one bottle will last for ages! Simply lovely.
Notes* “Although we started out as a “handmade in our kitchen with love” kind of line, we can no longer do that! Our tiny team couldn’t keep up, and many US facilities have much stricter quality standards than we ever could! Today we formulate all of our products in our space in Brooklyn, NY, and then partner with small, organic manufacturers around the US to have them made.
For us, less isn’t just more; less is everything. We’ve found that if we stick with only absolutely essential ingredients and don’t add a bunch of extra stuff, we don’t need to put a hundred things into our products. Using fewer ingredients means more potent skincare.
Our whole thing is that fewer ingredients means gentler skincare. And the simpler your routine the better. Our products are effective, easy to use, and made for everyone.” -SW Basics

*The biggest difference between a cream and lotion is the oil content. Creams having a larger percentage of oil content and are most useful to deeply nourish and hydrate very dry skin.
