I learned that lotion bars are a thing and are the best option for avoiding plastic and other packaging for lotion. I also learned that ingredients in cosmetics are not really that regulated by the FDA thus there’s health and environmental concerns over common chemicals in mainstream lotions and cosmetics.
To keep things short, the best bet is to order lotion bars online, make DIY lotion yourself, or last resort buy Dr. Bronner’s lotion at the store. Some eco-friendly stores even offer lotion refill stations, so that’s an option too.
