Family-owned Mountain Ocean’s Skin Trip moisturizer was created by Karen Benjamin in the high, dry climate of Colorado’s Rocky Mountains, one of the few places on earth where you can get windburn, sunburn, and frostbite—in the same day.
Powered by coconut oil, with its antimicrobial, antioxidant, antifungal, antibacterial, and soothing properties, the fast-absorbing lotion soon became a cult favorite and spawned a spin-off soap. Both products have pH-balanced formulas that contain whole natural ingredients, emulsifiers derived from natural and organic sources, and no harsh preservatives.
