Refuel Responsibly

Marshall and Megan Dostal make it a point to live as eco-consciously as possible--you could even say they're driven. For years, the couple has relied exclusively on bio-diesel-powered vehicles to get where they need to go. To procure this eco-friendly fuel, Marshall collects depleted waste grease from some of Los Angeles' finest restaurants and converts it into useful energy in the Dostal's garage-turned-laboratory.

One day, Megan, a former event planner for Vogue magazine, discovered the result of years of DIY bio-diesel distilling: barrel upon barrel of glycerin, a byproduct of the conversion process. So, using Megan's high-fashion prowess and Marshall's eco-ingenuity, the couple took their passion for the environment one step further by creating their signature line of skin-soothing moisturizers that are as good to the earth as they are to your body.

The Dostal's stores of locally sourced, depleted vegetable oils are purified into rich glycerin and blended with bergamot, olive, and exotic grass oils, making a rich lotion that possesses a lovely, delicate scent. The aroma is light and summery, evoking dew-kissed grass blades, sweet tea, and a refreshing twist of citrus. The Dostal's handcrafted biofuel goes into their cars, the glycerin goes into their lotion, and in doing both, the couple has established a perfect sustainable circle and you're now part of it! Handmade in Los Angeles, California. Not tested on animals.

    Comments about BIO-FUEL LOTION:

    The lotion caught my eye because of its Eco-consciousness. I liked the idea and story behind it and thought I would give it a try. The lotion smells great and it hydrates the skin without the greasy feeling. I am happy I purchased this product. Why is it being discontinued?

                  I bought this for my fiance', but I have been using it as well. I just LOVE how it feels. I have never used a lotion that leaves the skin so soft without residue! This lotion also has a great scent that isn't overwhelming!

                          I have been using Further soap for years and was so excited when I heard they came out with a lotion. I keep the soap in my powder room and/or kitchen. People who come over ALWAYS ask me where I bought it because they love the scent and then they read the label and really love the story behind it. The lotion is the perfect compliment to the soap - smells so clean and refreshing and hydrates my dry skin beautifully. I am an excessive handwasher and live in a dry climate so I consider myself an expert in the "hydration" department :) I also have no tolerance for greasy lotions, which this is not. Great to have extras on hand to use as hostess gifts.

                            I am very conscious about the products we use, and there is zero guilt with Further because it's natural, doesn't have toxic junk and is super eco-friendly. I love knowing the "circle of life" of the restaurants supplying the oil for biofuel to power cars with less emissions and the glycerin by-product getting used (instead of discarded) to make the soap that then goes back in restaurant (and home) restrooms. So cool! And don't get me started on the delicious fragrance. Great soap and great lotion. I've bought it, received it as a gift and given it as a gift, too.
