In April, I reviewed Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion, which has become one of my preferred body lotions (especially for cooler months). Today I am featuring the version with sun protection.

Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion SPF 15 has a dense lotion consistency. It features ingredients that protect against UVA and UVB rays. (It uses avobenzone to protect against the skin-damaging UVA rays.)

(For body sunscreen products, I don’t have a preference regarding physical/chemical sunscreen ingredients. (I am not sensitive to chemical sunscreen ingredients.) As for facial sunscreen products, I very slightly prefer chemical sunscreen ingredients because physical ones can sometimes feel heavy on the skin.)

Some of the moisturizing ingredients that this product contains are glyceryl stearate, petrolatum, paraffinum liquidum, propylene glycol, cetyl alcohol, glycerin, and cocoa seed butter extract.

I am glad to find most of the things I like about the Cocoa Butter Formula Body Lotion in the SPF version. The SPF version is also very easy to spread and is easily absorbed. It is emollient and moisturizing but it does not leave an oily or sticky film. It has the same smoky cocoa scent that I find very pleasant.

This is a very adequate sun protection product that will also help nourish the skin. It will particularly suit those with drier skin types and those who have to deal with dry heat.
