On Hand Lotions creates truly natural body care made with deliciously-organic ingredients.
Owner and founder Hayna Humphries-Weems began formulating body care items because she wanted the best quality possible for her family and friends. Combining lifelong passions for natural living, science, and organic gardening, Hayna completed her first solid lotion bars in 2007. “When my children were born, our hands and faces were always chapped from frequent washing and outdoor play. Liquid lotions were messy and inconvenient to carry on our adventures and nothing was gentle enough for my babies’ eczema and sensitive skin,” explained Hayna. Salves and balms made with homegrown medicinal flowers and beeswax from her father’s honeybees soon followed.
Hayna and her husband Benjamin launched On Hand Lotions from their home kitchen in early 2014. Folks fell in love with the products as well as Hayna and Ben’s dedication to sustainability. In 2015, On Hand Lotions moved to a small facility in Naples, NY where Hayna and a tightly-knit team continue to carefully handcraft everything in small batches. This diverse line includes FDA-approved Sun’s Up! zinc oxide sunscreens, Bugscreen bug spray featuring homebrewed apple cider vinegar, herbal clay masks, frankincense chamomile serums, vegan deodorants, lip balms sweetened with homegrown stevia leaves, salves infused with homegrown calendula flowers, and thoughtfully-curated gift sets. All items are free of synthetic flavors, fragrances, colors.
