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 bowl, add 48 ounces of water.
  3. Add to water, stearic acid and emulsifying wax.
  4. Place the bowl in microwave and heat until the stearic acid and wax is completely melted. This could take between 3-5 minutes.
  5. While waxes are melting, weigh out the butter and oils.
  6. To the water mixture, add the Shea Butter, Coconut Oil and Safflower Oil. Gently stir to allow butter to soften.
  7. Using a stick blender, begin to blend. Continue blending until mixture starts to thicken. This may take a few minutes. If mixture does not seem to be thickening up, let mixture cool down a little and then start to blend again.
  8. Once mixture begins to thicken, turn blender off.
  9. Mix 19 ml Marshmallow Fragrance Oil with 19 ml. Vanilla Color Stabilizer. Mix well.
  10. To lotion, add Vitamin E and fragrance mixture. Continue blending for 1 minute.
  11. Check temperature of lotion to be sure it is under 176°F. Add Optiphen Plus preservative and blend until fully mixed.
  12. Add Shimmering White Clouds Mica Powder. We found it best to mix in by hand and then stick blend to get rid of any clumps.
  13. Pour lotion into bottles. If lotion is too thick to pour, use a pastry bag or zip lock bag (cutting off a corner) and pipe lotion into the bottles.
  14. Let lotion cool completely before capping so that condensation does not form on the inside of the bottles.
  15. Label product according to FDA regulations.

"Can I eliminate the steric acid? How would I alter the recipe to make sure it's a similar consistency. I'm concerned because I know the Optiphen can make recipes a little watery. "

"Can I pre-mix this base without the color and fragrance in a large batch and add fragrance and color to smaller batches when needed? How would I go about that - do I re-heat the portion and then blend in the fragrance and color?"

"I noticed this fragrance has 14% vanilla in it. Will the stabilizer keep it pure white? Usually with that much vanilla, even stabilizer doesn't keep it purely white. I just want to be sure because if I name my lotion Marshmallow fluff and it turns brown… That won't be a big seller :)"
