New version is no good!

I used to love this lotion, it absorbed well, had a mild scent. Now they have changed the formula, using a different preservative that causes my sensitive skin to itch all over. It doesn't absorb as well and the mild almond scent is gone, replaced by the scent of the phenoxyethanol (combo) preservative. Terrible change!
New Formula of Avalon Organics Hand and Body Lotion.

Frankly I was dissapointed in the "newly' formulated lotion. I have been using this for several years and considered it one of the best. On my last order I received the product, but with "new" on the label. The new formula has a grainey feeling. I am now looking for a replacement product.

I have never had a lotion that moisturizes so well. I live in dry southern Colorado and had a very itchy winter until I started using Avalon Lotions. I ordered the unscented to cut a coconut scented lotion with a fragrance that is too strong. The combo works well. The lemon scented Avalon lotion is also good. The lavender scented a little strong.

I love this hand lotion, I'm very chemical sensitive, and doesn't affect me
Best. Moisturiser. Ever.

I have been using this stuff for years and years, and have recommended it to many people, including guys who particularly like the fact that it's not greasy and doesn't smell girly. It's the only thing that keeps my legs feeling moisturised, and the only hand lotion I can use at work without feeling like I've just poured oil all over my keyboard! It's also wonderful as an after sun lotion; if you get sunburned, slather this stuff on several times a day and you're not likely to end up with any peeling (tip: keep some pure aloe vera juice in a spray bottle and spray it on before moisturising for instant cool and hydration!) With the old formula, it used to bother me that by the time I got to the end of the 1L bottle, it smelled a little rancid. Now they have changed the formula and it's slightly more oily (though still not greasy) and it smells slightly yeasty (reminds me of freshly cooked hot donuts), but it never smells rancid and it still feels wonderful on the skin. This product is actually what led me to iHerb... to think I was paying AUD $32 for this stuff when I could get it online for $13! I was so upset when my local whole foods store couldn't get it in anymore but then I found it here and I couldn't be happier, I love iHerb!!

we really like avalon organics product and needed a body lotion so tried this product. some pros and cons: pro: *it's moisturizing and contains aloe, which is especially good for dry skin in the winter con: *the pump didn't work on our bottle, we're going to request a replacement *the bottle says unscented, but it definitely had a smell that was not so pleasant

pump is great, lotion is lacking moisture

The packaging is great on this item, but the lotions I've decides after comparing about 20 varieties is very dry. It has silicone and fillers in it that aren't healthy for me. I've since dumped out the contents and will fill with my favorites since I love the sturdy bottle with pump.
very very nice lotion

I love spreading on my skin. No smell, keeps it moisturised for a long time :)
