Best Body Lotion Made with Local Ingredients


Bodacious Body from Hudson Valley Skin Care

Pleasant Valley

The husband-and-wife team of Glenn and Cathie Arpino — a pharmacist and cosmetic formulator, respectively — craft their natural skincare line out of Dermasave Labs, Dutchess County’s first compounding-only pharmacy.

Along with the store’s soaps and bath soaks incorporating Hudson Valley ingredients is Bodacious Body Lotion, a saving grace for skin during harsh winters. Available in five different essential oil blends — green tea, citrus, lavender, lemon peppermint, and sensuous sandalwood — the lotion is blended with cocoa, shea, and soy butters and spiked with argan oil, vitamin E, cucumber, rosemary, and chamomile extracts. The star ingredient: organic oats from Clinton Corners’s Wild Hive Farm. 800-277-7099; www.hudsonvalleyskincare.com
