A body lotion more than 60 years in the making

Posted Thursday, July 29, 2010

When you order a bottle of Eight Body Moisture, you’ll receive lotion from a fresh batch. But the formula, give or take a few ingredients, has been in the founder’s family since 1944. After years of being tweaked and fine-tuned, the creamy concoction reached its current recipe.

The hero product of the Eight collection, Body Moisture is formulated with 14 natural ingredients that have been brought together to not only hydrate dry skin, but soothe the itching that often accompanies it. Some are traditional moisturizing extracts, like coconut and avocado oils, while others, like Tahitian gardenia, make the blend a true stand-out.

We love the light ginger lime fragrance that adds to the enjoyment of using Body Moisture. And because of the essential oil content, the scent gently fades away just in time for you to apply your favorite perfume without any olfactory competition.

We’re not quite sure why the brand is called Eight—perhaps the eight ounces of lotion? But we are sure that this moisturizing miracle is a ten.
