This is a great everyday lotion for face and body use. It's light enough not to clog pores or cause breakouts but heavy enough to actually moisturize. If you live in a northern climate or suffer from especially dry skin, you probably want something heavier, but for the rest of us, this is a great product in sustainable and creative packaging. The scent is strong during applications but we've found it doesn't linger on your skin and leave you in a cloud of odor. The best part is that it is free of sulfates, parabens, silicone, phthalates and palm oil so there's no guilt in jumping into the water and having chemicals float off you into the ocean.
Plain Products are:
Founded by two sisters, Lindsey and Alison Delaplaine, Plaine Products began with a dream to have less plastic waste in the world.
Lindsey spent 10 years living and working in the Bahamas. There she saw firsthand the consequences of our disposable lifestyle with plastic on the beach, in the ocean, and along the roads. After looking around her bathroom and realizing how much plastic she owned, she called Alison and they started talking about how to change that, and how to make it easy for others to do the same.
Plaine Products is the culmination of their life experiences. Their late father was a small business entrepreneur throughout his life, a part of his family’s tradition, and their mother shared her love of the ocean and travel with them and their children. Coming from a nonprofit background Lindsey has made a career out of finding solutions. Alison has small business experience, a design degree, and the natural ability to ensure quality control. As sisters, they work well together and provide a balance for each other that benefits the company and its customers.
They spent a year researching natural products until they found some whose quality amazed them while staying true to our rule of being chemical-free. They run all of the ingredients through the Environmental Working Group’s database to make sure they are safe and non-toxic.
