This marvelous solid bar is a lotion! A perfect size for your purse or desktop! As the Bee Bar lotion is picked up and warmed by the hands or skin, the essential oils and butters are released and can be gently massaged into the skin and absorbed like any lotion. It won’t come off on fabric or paper and you can wash your hands several times without having to reapply the lotion. For this reason, it is unprecedented as a soothing moisturizer for dry cracked or damaged skin.
