Winters can be absolutely unforgiving to our skin!
Skin dryness, itchiness, and roughness.. These are the most common issues people face during the winter season. A rich and moisturizing body lotion is your only friend that can help your skin to beat the unforgiving cold winter winds! Today, I am going to share with you all the 5 best chemical free natural body lotions suitable for dry and sensitive skin that you can try out during these winters. They are affordable and loaded with natural, skin-friendly ingredients!
Let’s get started!
5 Best Chemical Free Natural Body Lotions For Dry And Sensitive Skin In India
#1 – DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion
You would totally understand why I have mentioned it in the #1 position itself after getting to know that I have used at least 5 to 6 bottles of DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion and I just cannot get enough of it! I would give it the title of the best natural body lotion in India that I have tried so far. It is affordable and it usually comes with a huge discount offer if you buy it in a pack of two.
Both me and my mom love this natural body lotion to the core. It has a non-greasy texture and a heavenly fragrance of cocoa butter, truly the best smelling body lotion that I have tried to date. The lotion is completely free of harsh chemicals and parabens, hence, it is suitable for those with sensitive skin and other skin related problems. It does contain mineral oil, which is -generally- not considered a harmful ingredient, but a lot of websites have portrayed it as acne aggravating ingredient. You can read about it on acne.org to clear out your confusion about its pros and cons for the skin and make a decision yourself.
According to the brand, it can also be used on the face because of its lightweight texture that gets absorbed by the skin in a jiffy. I don’t use it for my face during the humid weather conditions, but in the winter season, I use it for my face and body both. I get really bad dry patches on my face during the winters which don’t go away that easily.
I am so glad that I have this lotion with me to save my skin during this harsh weather. Do check out my DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion Review if you want to know about it in detail.
#2 – Mamaearth Skin Repair Natural Winter Body Lotion with Mango & Kokum butter
I was kind of late to try out Mamearth’s products that were being raved about by everyone. But when I finally tried them, I fell in love with their quality! I am currently using their hair care products from all categories and also their Ubtan face wash. They all are filled with the goodness of natural ingredients and the brand has also excluded the use of bad chemicals in all of them! My hair and skin are totally loving their products right now.
The Mamaearth skin repair body lotion is another one of their many products which is enriched with two tremendously moisturizing ingredients – mango butter and kokum butter. Aside from that, the body lotion also has a whole amalgamation of other naturally nourishing ingredients like olive oil, beeswax, glycerine, shea butter, and many more of them. It comes in an easy to use pump bottle packaging. The brand has one more variant of body lotion, the Mamaearth Hydrating Natural Body Lotion with Cucumber & Aloevera. The latter one is more ideal as a body lotion for summers since it has a lightweight and hydrating formula.
For winters, you can totally go with the Skin Repair body lotion and keep the dry, flaky skin away!
#3 – Aroma Essentials Body Butters
Body butters serve the same purpose as body lotions, it is just that they are a bit more nourishing and moisturizing than body lotions.
Aroma Essentials is a Bangalore based brand that makes a ton of ultra-affordable skincare products in fresh batches. Their products don’t contain any kind of chemicals, be it artificial preservatives or anything of that sort. I have reviewed a lot of products from Aroma Essentials on the blog and you can explore the reviews here.
I have used their body butters in two variants as well as a body sorbet, which is a water-based moisturizer ideal for summers that hydrates and calms the skin. They are currently offering this lovely set of body butters in 4 different variants, jasmine, rose, lavender and orange vanilla.
This combo of 4 body butters is a great deal that you must definitely consider purchasing for the winters. I have reviewed the orange vanilla variant. You can also try out the Chocolate Cocoa Body Butter which smells absolutely yummy!

#4 – Khadi Body Lotion
I spot Khadi’s products all the time while surfing Amazon and they always fascinate me because all of them are so, so affordable!
The ingredient list of this Khadi Body Lotion is quite interesting and beneficial for those who want to get rid of skin tanning. Its main ingredients – sandal, kesar, and aloe vera, are known for their skin brightening, cooling, and hydrating properties. At its cheap price tag, I think it is a value for money product! This is also a paraben-free body lotion in India.

#5 – Biotique Body Lotions
I cannot live without the body scrubs from biotique! They are my absolute favorite and I keep on repurchasing them.
The brand has body lotions in many variants and also in different sizes. The price range is below Rs.300 for 190ml of product which is awesome, isn’t it? You can choose the variant as per your liking or you can go with the bestselling one on Amazon, which is Bio Wintercherry Lightening And Rejuvenating Body Nourisher.
Besides the body lotions, Biotique also has an interesting body care product. It is the Bio Carrot Anti-Aging After Bath Body Oil. Those who prefer using oils to moisturize their skin instead of using body lotions can give this product a try. It is meant to be used after bath, as per the product description. It contains carrot seed oil which has high amounts of beta carotene – a compound found in vegetables and fruits that gets converted into vitamin A (retinol) after its consumption.
The retinol compound is well known as a powerful anti-aging agent, maybe this is why they have named it an anti-aging oil! This is not something that I would like to try because I am not a big fan of using oils, but its numerous positive ratings and reviews on Amazon made me want to mention it here so that my readers can get to know about it!
That is it guys! I hope you all found this list of Chemical Free Natural Body Lotions helpful. P.S. – if you have extremely sensitive skin or skin problems like rosacea or psoriasis, then please do a patch test before using any of the lotions I have mentioned above. They are chemical free, but sometimes even natural ingredients can cause flare-ups.
So yes, remember to do a patch test and do let me know which of these lotions are you planning to try for the winters! And if you have any other favourite natural body lotions that are available in India, then I would love to know about them as well!
