APPLE CIDER VINEGAR LOTION
This is bottle holds 8 oz of Lotion.
Sometimes all things come together in something really cool like the first time I got it into my head to try to make a lotion using apple cider vinegar instead of water.
This lotion is the result of wanting to make an ACV Lotion for a number of years for my own personal use. Mainly I wanted it for my yearly trek to the Art Festival Burning Man that takes place in an Alkaline dry lake bed. This ACV lotion would protect my skin and act as a Ph balancer as well as moisturize and heal my skin from heat, wind and dust damage.
However, after extensive research on lotions I found that a good lotion that can be infused with vinegar requires both emulsifiers and preservatives to be safe, easy to use and effective. Luckily I found what I believe to be a benign emulsifier and the use of ACV in my lotion allows me to lower the preservative level necessary by allowing the high acid level in the lotion do some of the work.
My final lotion worked so much better then I could imagine. It felt great on my skin and seemed to make my skin happy in the very difficult challenges of burning man. I believe it can also help other people struggling with skin conditions and people who are seeking ways to reduce their exposure to preservatives while still using moisturizing lotions.
I encourage you to try it. The Apple Cider Vinegar is thought to help eczema, dermatitis, irritations and varicose veins. It is also excellent for people who work with cement, clay or other alkaline things or alkaline environments. Great for many people living in the desert. Apple Cider Vinegar is especially good at the festival Burning Man which takes place in an alkaline dry lake.
When it goes on it smells like Vinegar a bit but that quickly fades. It is followed by a lovely tangy lemon apple scent.
