Local Products Offer Deep Healing in Cooler Months: Frangipani Body Products
As we move into the fall season and cooler weather, Frangipani Body Products Owner Tracy Land recommends using moisturizers made solely with plant-based ingredients. And there’s one, seemingly harmless natural ingredient she feels you might want to avoid in moisturizers as well.
“If you want something that’s really moisturizing, you need a product with no water,” she advises, adding that some lotions and moisturizers are 50 percent water.
In her Frangipani line, Land offers Shea Butter Softening Lotion ($21), which is water-free. Along with shea butter and jojoba oil, the lotion contains calming essential oils. All Frangipani products are sold in recyclable containers (brown glass or #1 plastic) and are made with Earth- friendly, plant-based ingredients. “There’s nothing in them that didn’t come from the Earth to begin with,” says Land, whose wares are sold at Georgetown Market, Nature’s Pharm, Good Earth Natural Foods, Bloomingfoods, Sunspot Natural Market, Optimal Wellness Center, and Stillpoint Family Chiropractic.
