Question Hypoallergenic lotions

I have very serious allergies and have not been able to tan for quite some time now because I can't find a lotion that works for me. Even the so called hypoallergenic lotions often have coconut oil in them which I can't use.

So does anyone know of the best hypoallergenic lotions, I need it to organic, fragrance free and without coconut or cocoa. I also of course need a source to buy a bottle. I live in Canada, so someone that can ship it here is required.

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

Do you have a moisturizer you already use at home? If you that sensitive you might just use a high quality moisturizer & skip the bronzers. Moist skin tans better.

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

I just use baby oil, and I know it can be really hard on the beds, so I'm not sure what to use. If I find a moisturizer that works for me is it okay to use that in the beds?

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

Try everyday shorts' line hippie. They have a product called flower child that is organic and hypoallergenic. I have not found a client to have any issues with it

Baby Oil will ruin acrylics, I'm sure the salons do not want you to use that. Won't your local salon help find you a product that works?

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

That's why I haven't used baby oil to tan, but its great as a moisturizer for me, because it has so few additives and it is hypoallergenic. I've tried to find something at my salon, they seem about as lost as all of you. They have suggested a few things, but as soon as I read the ingredients there is always something in there that is not safe for me to use.

I guess some suggestions are just "lost" in translation...

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

I carry Shea you love me, Naked ambition and Kardashian glow natural bronzer as my hypoallergenic lotions and none of those say coconut oil as an ingredient. Shae you love me is the only fragrance free

Re: Hypoallergenic lotions

I have success with referring clients to Shae You Love Me. Fragrance free as well as hypoallergenic.
