Hand Care: Aura Cacia's innovative hand care line includes lotions and washes made with all-natural, clean ingredients derived from plants, multi-vitamins and blends of 100-percent pure essential oils. Key ingredients in the hand care lotion are almond oil, which retains moisture and enhances skin smoothness, and essential oils of blue cypress, tea tree and grapefruit to help create a fresh, clean feeling. The hand wash contains anti-bacterial bee propolis, as well as essential oils of blue cypress, tea tree, grapefruit and coriander. Aura Cacia's "Clarify" hand lotion is available in a 4-ounce size, retailing at $2.99 and 8-ounce size retailing at $5.99, while "Clarify" hand wash comes in an 8-ounce size for $5.99.

Body Lotions: New luxurious and soothing body lotions from Aura Cacia contain vitamins A and E alfalfa, constituents important for skin protection and repair. Free of chemicals that can irritate the skin, Aura Cacia body lotion contains natural emulsifiers. "Calm" body lotion contains essential oils of wild chamomile, lavender, sweet marjoram and sweet orange for a soothing experience. "Renew" body lotion helps rejuvenate through essential oils of sweet orange, carrot seed, petitgrain, ylang ylang and jasmine. Both Aura Cacia "Calm" body lotion and "Renew" body lotion are available in 8-ounce bottles for a retail price of $5.99 and 32-ounce pump bottles for $14.99.

Body Washes: To promote optimal skin health, Aura Cacia's new washes are designed to cleanse while keeping the skin moist. Along with specially formulated blends of essential oils, "Renew" body wash contains exfoliating pumice and jojoba beads while "Calm" contains vitamin-rich alfalfa. Retailing for $5.99, the 8-ounce body washes come in two refreshing varieties: "Calm" and "Renew."
