Beauty Aisle: Napa Organics Nourishing Body Lotion


Napa OrganicsWhat: A completely natural and very simple aloe- and almond-based body lotion that absorbs quickly. It’s packaged in a pretty glass bottle with a pump, so you can leave it sink-side for chapped hands post-washing. And it looks and feels pricier than it is.

Why: All five ingredients—which are listed proudly on the front of the bottle—are derived from botanicals you’ll recognize. When you rub it in, your skin immediately feels nourished, and the sweet, almond-y scent is intoxicating.

Who: Napa Organics is like the West Coast Sprout Skincare. The six affordable products are handmade in small batches, using just a few ingredients. And 90 percent of them are sourced from small farms in Napa Valley and Northern California, an approach the brand calls “agribeauty.” —Lisa Elaine Held
