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 during these winters. Let’s get started!
5 Best Chemical Free Natural Body Lotions For Dry And Sensitive Skin In India
#1 – DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion
You will understand why I have mentioned it in the #1 position itself after knowing that I am currently on the third bottle of the DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion and the fourth and fifth bottles of it are on their way!
This product has become a necessity for me. Both me and my mom love this 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 till 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 an acne aggravating ingredient. You can read about it on acne.org to clear out your confusion about its pros and cons for the skin.
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 was not using it for my face during the humid weather conditions, but now since the winter season has started, I am using it for my face and body both. I get really bad dry patches on my face during winters which don’t go away that easily.
I am so glad that I have this lotion with me now and I hope it will help me to heal dry skin on my face as the temperature will fall more in the coming days. Do check out my DeBelle Moisturizing Lotion Review if you want to know about it in detail.
#2 – Patanjali Tejus Body Lotion & Patanjali Saundarya Body Lotion
I reviewed the tejus body lotion last year on my blog, you can read my review by heading over here. I will be honest, I didn’t like this body lotion that much for winters. It is quite lightweight and nourishing, but not moisturizing enough for the harsh winter season.
I am still listing it out here because it is chemical free and made with natural ingredients like lodhra extracts, manjisth extracts, turmeric, etc. I will recommend the Patanjali Tejus Body Lotion only to those who have normal / slightly dry skin even when the winters are on.
I am yet to try the other two body lotions that the brand has, they are – Patanjali Saundarya Body Lotion and Patanjali Shishu Care Body Lotion. The latter one is meant for babies, but guess what? Adults can use it too, the Patanjali’s fan-babies won’t get offended!
#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 here. 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, but till now, I have not tried a single product from them as I don’t know much about the brand. Certain products from Khadi have not so great reviews and that’s another reason.
But their body lotion has an average rating of 4/5 which is pretty cool. The ingredient list of this Khadi Body Lotion is also quite interesting. Its main ingredients – sandal, kesar and aloe vera, are known for their skin brightening, cooling and hydrating properties. For Rs.130/-, I think it is a value for money product! This is also a paraben free body lotion.

#5 – Biotique Body Lotions
Although this brand has been around from a long time, I didn’t get a chance to try out their products until last year. I had purchased their Bhringraj Oil in 2016, but I didn’t like it that much due to its extremely strong fragrance. Last month, I bought a couple of more products from them (Which I shared on my instagram post) and I am having a good experience with them so far. 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 nice. You can choose the variant as per your liking or you can go with the bestselling one on Amazon, that 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 (Price – Rs.135/-). 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 an 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, then I would love to know about them as well!
