Now you might wonder why you should use a body oil over a body lotion, or what the difference is? Allow me to explain. A body oil is similar to what are own skin naturally produces to hydrate our skin. It basically mimics our own skin oils! Soapn’ Natural Body Oil is best after you shower and your skin is still slightly damp. It will help lock in moisture and really seal it in. If water isn't on your skin when you apply an oil it will likely sit on top of the skin and feel greasy. That's why it's important to add an oil to slightly damp skin. Also, be sure you're not using too much! Often people complain of greasy skin after applying a body oil but it's because they've applied too much. A little goes a long way!
