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 large glass mixing bowl, add 50 ounces of water.
  3. Measure and add to water the Stearic Acid and Emulsifying Wax.
  4. Place bowl in microwave and heat until stearic and wax are completely melted.  This could take between 3-5 minutes or longer depending on wattage of your microwave. Waxes must be completely melted for lotion to emulsify properly.
  5. Stir water/wax mixture once completely melted in. 
  6. To water mixture, add in Aloe Butter, Grapeseed Oil and Babassu Oil. Gently stir to allow butter to soften and melt.
  7. Using a stick blender or hand mixer, begin to blend ingredients. Continue blending until mixture starts to thicken. This may take at least 5 minutes.
  8. Once mixture starts to thicken, turn off blender.
  9. Add 2 oz. of Cyclomethicone,  2 oz. of fragrance and .5 oz. of Vitamin E. Continue blending.  Product should, again, start to thicken.
  10. After a minute or two, turn off blender. Check temperature of lotion to be sure it is under 176°F.  Add the .70 oz. of Optiphen Plus and the 1 oz. of Colloidal Oatmeal.
  11. Blend mixture for about 1 minute.
  12. Cover mixture and let set overnight. Lotion will thicken as it sits.
  13. Place some lotion into a pastry bag or a large ziploc bag.  Cut the tip off and sqeeze lotion into an 8 oz. bottle. Continue until all bottles have been filled.  Place caps on and label according to FDA regulations.
  14. If desired, place lotion into 16 - 4 oz. bottles.   
  15. NOTE: This fragrance contains 6% vanilla. Lotion will darken gradually over time due to this natural occurence. If desired, the fragrance can be mixed with Vanilla Color Stabilizer for Lotions and Washes to help prevent this.  To the 2 oz. of fragrance, you would add 1 oz. of the stabilizer. Mix well before adding to the lotion.

WSP Questions And Answers

"How did you determine the amt of Optiphen Plus to use? After researching I comprehended that to determine the amt of preservative needed is by multiplying the total weight of product by the usage rate (excluding fo/eo). Am I correct?"

"Can you leave out the fragrance and add later? I want to make a large batch and leave unscented until I decide what fragrance or fragrances I would like to use. Was thinking I could reheat when I'm ready to add the fragrance."

"Is it necessary to leave the lotion in the blender overnight, then pour it into a ziplock and then bottle? Once it has cooled and thickened a bit, could it not be bottled, or is there a reason for the overnight-to-ziplock-to-bottle step?"

"Hello there! I just found this recipe in the Handmade Magazine online and noticed that the Inci ingredient label was cut off after Grapeseed oil. What is the rest of the label? I can't wait to make this lotion and sell it to my eager customers! Thanks a bunch."
