Moisturizing Body Oil Recipe
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Monday, June 1, 2015

Quench your skin's thirst for moisture with this luxury body oil. The Isopropyl Myristate allows the oils in this recipe to be easily absorbed by the skin, ensuring quick penetration of the other ingredients. Cosmetics-grade mineral oil is considered one of the safest, most non-irritating moisturizing ingredients ever found. Many people have expressed concern about the role of this oil in cosmetics, particularly that it may "block" the skin and prevent toxins from escaping. Research suggests that refined mineral oil used in cosmetics does not clog pores and is generally considered safe for all types of skin.

INCI Ingredient Label: Mineral Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter), Ternifolia (Macadamia) Seed Oil, Juglanas regia (Walnut) Oil, Oenothera Biennis (Evening Primrose) Oil, Carthamus tinctorius (Safflower) Seed Oil, Isopropyl Myristate, Fragrance

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 and workspace.
  2. Place the measuring cup on a scale and tare to zero ounces. (We noticed that some of our oils have tiny bits of the press & seal liner floating in them. To prevent these from getting into our finished product, we used an extra-fine mesh strainer over our measuring cup when measuring the oils.)  
  3. Measure and pour 12 oz. Mineral Oil**, 4 oz. Liquid Shea Butter, 2 oz. Macadamia Nut Oil, 2 oz. Walnut Oil, 2 oz. Evening Primrose, 1 oz. Safflower Oil and 1 oz. Isopropyl Myristate into cup. Be sure to tare the scale between each oil to ensure accurate measurements.
  4. Add 18 ml Madagascar Vanilla Fragrance Oil.
  5. Whisk all ingredients together.
  6. Place one empty bottle on the scale and tare to zero ounces. Fill all 6 bottles to 4 oz. by weight. 
  7. Trim the dip tubes of your petite treatment pumps to 4 inches to fit the bottles and put onto the bottles.
  8. Label product accordingly.
  9. **If you do not wish to use mineral oil in this recipe, you can substitute 12 oz. of Coconut Oil Fractionated for the 12 oz. of Mineral Oil.  We found that the coconut oil caused slight clouding in the finished product but the overall performance was unchanged.
