Recipe Directions

  1. NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  2. In a medium-sized bowl, add 2.4 oz. Argan Oil and 0.32 oz. Glycerin.
  3. Weigh 1.44 oz. Emulsifying Wax and 0.32 oz. Stearic Acid and add to bowl of oil.
  4. Place bowl into microwave and heat until the stearic and emulsifying wax have completely melted (approx. 2 minutes). The lotion will not emulsify properly if the waxes are not completely melted. 
  5. Add 11.20 oz. of warm Distilled Water to melted oil/wax and begin to blend. We prefer using a stick blender but a hand mixer will also work. 
  6. Blend until product starts to thicken.
  7. Add 0.16 oz. each of Vitamin E and Optiphen Plus and stir by hand. 
  8. Add 0.32 oz. Azurite Sky Fragrance Oil and mix until all ingredients are incorporated well.
  9. Fill each bottle to 3.75 oz. by weight. Let lotion cool completely before placing cap on bottle.
  10. Label product accordingly.

INCI Ingredient Label: Water, Argan Oil, Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid, Glycerin, Fragrance, Vitamin E, Optiphen Plus.

"I have a very specific question. In this recipe, the "water" stage is not heated up. Why is it that in some lotion recipes the water stage is heated up, and in others, it is not? Also, can I substitute the distilled water in this recipe for homemade rose water (distilled based) and aloe juice if it comes out to 11.2 oz? "

"I don't believe in Microwaving ANYTHING as (in my humble opinion) it radiates the heck out of all healing properties of everything and kills your food/products. Is it okay to also do this in a double boiler? I am new to lotion making. Thanks guys!"
