15 Best Natural Lotions: EWG Rated & Human Reviewed

Oh I'm so glad you're here! Cuz that means you must already be in the know about the toxic ingredients lurking in mainstream hand and body lotions. And being the super smart person you are, you're now on the hunt for your new favorite safe and natural lotion.


Blissful Miss is at your service with an easy reference list to the best nontoxic lotions and body butters, so you can get your "soft and supple" on, while flinging aside any fear of cancer and the like.

Ha! We laugh in the face of all those nasty medical ailments brought on by toxic ingredients and we take charge of our health with products that are both healthy AND completely amazing!

The fantastic body lotions listed here are rated safe by the Environmental Working group, and then cross referenced with Amazon customer reviews (so human beings just like you who have tried them) to find the safest and most stellar lotions in the land. 

It's that simple. For you, anyway. And, you're quite welcome.


The Environmental Working Group (EWG) rates products on their harmful effects to the body with a rating of 1 through 10, with 1 being the safest and 10 with the toxic nastiness. The body lotions in this list are grouped in ratings of 1 and 2.

Sure you can go directly to ewg.org and search their database. The thing is, you’ll find a whole lot of lotions to sift through and research. Where do you buy those lotions and how do people actually like them? 

Well Blissful Miss did the work for you. Only body lotions that are sold on Amazon and have many Amazon customer reviews with a rating of 4 or more stars make the cut. So when you choose an item off any of the Blissful Miss Best Natural Product Guides, you can be assured the product is both safe and well liked by amazing peeps like you.

Don't Be Fooled

Just because one product from a company is safe, doesn't mean every product that company makes is also safe. For instance, in a line of body lotions all made with the same base ingredients, different fragrances may be added that change the safety rating. And while one company might have a safe body lotion, that doesn't mean their facial moisturizer and shampoo are safe. Always check ingredient lists, EWG.org or Blissful Miss to ensure the safety of a product.

Amazon Review Quotes

Cleure Body Lotion - A Miracle
I am a nurse who struggles with very dry hands and have sensitive skin . . . This product is AMAZING. Most hand creams burn and itch the second I apply them due to the extreme dryness and irritation that frequent hand washing and hand sanitizers cause, but this lotion only soothes my skin and never stings.
I actually use this on my face because my skin is hyper-sensitive to facial moisturizers. I cannot begin to tell you how beautiful and soft my completion has become since I first tried this product. If you have sensitive, red and/or scaley skin TRY THIS LOTION!!!!!!

I've had amazing results with this product on stubborn winter eczema.

I have used Better Botanicals Kokum Butter Body Balm for years and I love it. My skin feels wonderful. I use it all over even my face. It repairs sun damage and heals dry skin. Wouldn't be without it.

I was experiencing a severe bout of allergic reaction to just about everything ... I noticed a change with the first use. My dry skin began to ease up and rashes began to disappear.

Amazon Review Quotes  

I'm so glad and relieved that I can stop searching for the perfect sunblock that doubles as a moisturizer. 
It is an excellent base for my makeup. I add a tad of foundation to it and my skin looks great.
I bought this mainly as a sunscreen for my face. I enjoy using it and feel fully protected from the sun. It smells very good and the jar is quite nice.

Amazon Review Quotes

This is a GREAT product. I have rosacea and every product I have tried irritated my sensitive skin....until now! This sunscreen goes on nice and easy which is so important because the last thing I want to do is have to rub my sensitive skin. It covers completely and with the light tint, you don't see any white SPF residue.

Wonderful product for the sunny months. My skin needs no other goop in the morning! Works great as a sunblock (no new freckles!) and with a slight tint, it evens out the "imperfections". Nice as a moisturizer. 

I really like this sunscreen. It's easy to apply and evens out my skin tone. Doesn't make me breakout. I have an olive complexion and the dark honey color is perfect for me.

Amazon Review Quotes

This is my one & only body lotion. I had incurable dry, flaking skin all over my body. But, not anymore; it's a miracle in a tube.
I love this lotion!! The smell is so fresh and I really noticed a huge difference in my skin since I've been using it. Absolutely love the fact that it's 100% cruelty free!! 5 stars for this awesome product!

This stuff is awesome. Smells great, soaks in good. I wish I could but it in a 5 gallon pail!!

Amazon Review Quotes

Best lotion I've ever used! Normally my skin soaks up lotion super quick, but this lotion coats your skin and doesn't leave a nasty, greasy residue. 
Daughter loves it. The baby was allergic to everything she tried. Not this.
Lightweight and non-greasy, goes on very smoothly and moisturizes nicely. Perfect for the summer months. There is very little scent (if any) and I love that it's free of harsh chemicals.
Works great, doesn't have a strong scent, use primarily for face. A lot of lotion for the money compared to similar products. Was looking for something with few or no chemicals and this product is just what I wanted.

EWG - 1

While this popular product is marketed for use on babies, it is recommended for the whole family. What's safe for little ones is safe for big ones, right? Several reviewers mention how well this lotion works for the face, as well as the body. Those with sensitive skin rave about it, some mention how well it works for diaper rash, and one reviewer said it cleared up their baby's eczema. 

  • Made with More than 70% Certified Organic Ingredients
  • Therapeutically formulated for dry, sensitive and irritated skin.
  • Light weight so that it spreads easily on baby's delicate skin
  • Made with Certified Organic Aloe, Shea Butter, Rose Hydrosol and Olive Oil our lotion

  • No fragrance is added, yet a light aroma emanates from the natural ingredients. 

Amazon Review Quotes

Use for the whole family!
I've been using this lotion for over three years and have found nothing that works as well as it does.
Nature's Baby Moisturizer is easy to apply and gets absorbed fairly quickly. It does not leave oily residue or cause any harm to the baby's clothes. Skin is left soft and smooth. I noticed that it even helps with diaper rashes!

Amazon Review Quotes

Only lotion I use! No odor, not oily! Awesome price! Can't find it cheaper anywhere else!

As a sufferer of eczema, I have been dependent on body lotions for all of my life, and I have tried them all! This lotion, by far, beats out the competition.

I don't know how they do it but this lotion truly does last up to 24 hours...even on very very dry skin.

I order this lotion in the 12oz. bottle because I cannot find it in stores anywhere and I just about bathe myself in it during the winter to avoid dry, itchy skin. And, of course, it smells nice without having a strong perfume odor.

EWG - 2

  • Fragrance Free
  • All Skin Types
  • Lightweight & Non-Greasy so you can turn doorknobs and all ... always a plus
  • Noticeably Softer Skin

Amazon Review Quotes

This is a keeper! ... I'm a 'hot mama' and can't stand most lotions as they make me feel like I'm wearing a wet suit when I perspire ... Went on smooth, felt great and absorbed within a few minutes ... and I didn't have that rubber suit feel.
I've been through so many lotions looking for something that is chemical free. This lotion is so perfect for my hands it's crazy - every winter my hands are shredded and cracked and now that I found this particular Puracy lotion I am ordering a couple more bottles ... soft hands with no oily residue on my fingertips. Great stuff!
I absolutely love this lotion. It's thick but not greasy, which is a very hard combination to have. I use it for my son, who has very sensitive skin and he never gets a rash from it. And I have very dry skin and it keeps me hydrated all day long.

  • Stimulates Collagen Production for Firmer Skin on your Entire Body
  • Brightens & Improves Skin Tone Naturally

Amazon Review Quotes

It has a pleasant soft scent, it prevents my skin from looking all ashy ... I love love it!!!!! I needed something to really help me with this winter weather and I found my solution!
You really have to try this. The smell is absolutely wonderful, clean and nice. This is not quite a lotion, it is a little thicker which I really like. It definitely does not sit on the top of your skin.
It blends great!! It has been a long time since I found something like this. I have psoriasis and of course as we all know nothing takes that away but this lotion has gotten rid of the white scales on my elbows and truly has smoothed out my skin, it looks good.

EWG - 2

This uplifting lotion restores brightness and rejuvenates your spirits. (Wow. That's a lot to ask of a body lotion.) The non-greasy absorption ensures your morning coffee won't go flying out of your hand.

Amazon Review Quotes

Makes your skin so soft and hydrated!
Love, Love, Love, Love the ingredients in this product...it more than delivers everything it promises to do. My skin just loves this lotion. This products keeps my skin looking and feeling youthful and moist! I would recommend this to everyone I know!
This lotion is the best I've tried, and I've tried many. It sinks in immediately, has no scent, and leaves my skin moist and smooth for the entire day. When I shower I don't have that slimy residue that other lotions have (those just sit on top of skin). This one really gets in and moisturizes deep.
This is the first lotion I have found in a very long time that does not irritate my skin and feels wonderful on my body. It appears to revive my skin without being heavy or greasy.

EWG - 2

Desert Essence Organics Fragrance Free Lotion is an organic lotion that provides deep nourishment for super soft, silky skin. Sweet!

  • Organic Green Tea is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols that protect and repair skin
  • Organic Jojoba Oil leaves the skin feeling moisturized and revitalized 
  • Organic Sunflower Oil helps to repair damage done by environmental stressors, due to its high content of the powerful antioxidant Vitamin E

Amazon Review Quotes

I like the creaminess and moisture.
I like the fact that it is dense and I don't feel like I have to use more of the product. I suffer from eczema on my legs and when I apply this lotion within a matter of minutes the discomfort begins to fade away.
I am sensitive to fragrances and prefer to use as many natural products as possible. This is an organic product that actually works on all your skin including your face. I just love it! No greasy feeling, just soft and smooth.
This is my new favorite natural, unscented lotion. This still has a bit of a fresh scent from the natural ingredients, but no overpowering perfumey smells to make me sick. This is a very emollient lotion that keeps my skin very hydrated all day long. The price is great too for a natural lotion with no chemicals.

EWG - 2

  • Infused with Revitalizing Minerals
  • Enhances Skin

Amazon Review Quotes

I love this lotion! It soaks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feel. Most importantly, I have allergies and many other lotions irritate my skin and eyes. This one is an affordably-priced miracle for my dry, sensitive skin!
This lotion is great. Has cocoa butter in it. Gives nice tingly feeling when you apply. Very relaxing. Not greasy at all! I'm using it for weight loss so that my skin stays firm.
I really love this lotion, it absorbs right into my skin without leaving it greasy. I am allergic to the sun and in the spring I get a rash that burns, itches, and hurts. This lotion seems to have cut the healing time down by more than half.

A huge tub of absolutely beautiful fragrant lavender body butter. Silky smooth going on and smells heavenly. I very highly recommend!
I use this product at least once if not twice a day on my face, neck, elbows, and knees. L-O-V-E IT! ... It felt like an instant miracle. It did not take long for the riverbed appearance to disappear and make my skin feel more youthfully soft again.
The best for dry and normal skin. Have given many of these away as gifts and people rave about it.
