A good rule of thumb is to never put anything on your skin that you wouldn't eat because it's all getting in your system! Even that Whole Foods brand paraben-free lotion has some nasty crap in it I can't pronounce or definitely do not want to eat - 'sup polysorbate 6?
Uncle Harry's natural products are awesome because they have no toxic ingredients. My favorite product is the Flower Nectar Monoi Tiare floral coconut oil of Tahitian inspiration:
|Uncle Harry's Monoi Tiare|
Monoi Tiare is a perfumed coconut oil infused with gardenia, jojoba, ylang-ylang, and a whole bunch of other delicious oils. All the ingredients are natural plant oils or bee pollen. Nothing artificial or chemical. No weird emulsifiers or preservatives.
It smells so good and tropical, I feel like I'm right there kickin' it in Bora Bora with Kim K.

I also find the monoi tiare absorbs a lot faster (and smells much better) than plain coconut oil. A 4-oz bottle ($10) lasts me about 2-3 months and I use it daily after my shower. It's great for tanning too!
