The 13 Best Body Moisturizers for Silky, Soft Skin in 2024

The 13 Best Body Moisturizers for Silky, Soft Skin in 2024

If a natural body lotion or cream is not already part of your daily skin care routine, you’re missing out. The best body moisturizers help prevent dry skin, without feeling greasy. The best natural lotions also support your skin barrier helping seal in moisture to keep every inch of your skin healthy and happy.

And, not just for winter! Most of us have dry skin year round but don't always notice until it's too late. The skin on our body is just as vulnerable to the ill effects of too much sun, stress, hot showers and aging during the summer. 

Using body lotion regularly helps prevent dry skin, and keep it silky soft year round. So, if your skin is feeling dry, tight, itchy, read on. These natural body moisturizers will wrap the skin below your neck in some serious TLC.

Best Body Lotion For Your Skin Type

With an overwhelming array of products available, finding the best body lotion can be a challenge. That's where this guide comes in. We've tried and tested every natural lotion in our collection, and are here to help you find the best natural body moisturizer for your needs.

Each lotion and cream helps quench dry skin and reinforce your skin barrier.  Some formulas work overtime to address other skin concerns like eczema, chronic dryness, stretch marks and uneven skin tone. 

All are made with healthy, natural and organic ingredients. Free from synthetic fragrances, parabens, phenoxyethanol, sodium laurel sulfates, denatured alcohol or other harsh chemicals.

 Our Top Picks

Most of our body moisturizers are suitable for all skin types so feel free to mix it up depending on your mood and preferences. See below for full details. 


    Which Type Of Natural Body Moisturizer Is Best For Your Skin?

    Body lotion, cream, and natural body oil (including body serums and body butters) each have unique benefits. Choosing the best moisturizing lotion mostly comes down to texture preference, skin type and your individual skin goals. Below we highlight the benefits of each type along with our top picks. 

    Body Lotion

    Lightweight and fast absorbing, natural body lotion leaves skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated. Body lotions are perfect during the day and for individuals with normal to slightly dry skin, as they provide essential moisture without leaving a greasy residue.

    Natural body lotion is typically less nourishing than an organic body cream or butter so dry skin types might not find them moisturizing enough – especially during the winter.
