Shea Butter and Aloe Lotion Recipe
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Tuesday, December 2, 2014

This lotion kit is great for beginners or for crafters who need a quick and easy addition to their product line. Aloe has long been considered to be a premier product for moisturizing and healing the skin while Shea Butter is thought to aid dry skin.  This delicious scent is highlighted with sun-kissed sliced apples, diced dewy ripe pear blended, bright wildflowers, and blonde woods. *Compare our fragrance to Bath & Body Works Beautiful Day.

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. Remove lid from gallon bucket of lotion. Scoop approximately 1/2 of lotion into a 64 oz. glass pyrex bowl.
  3. Put bowl into microwave and heat for 2 minute. Take out and stir. Lotion should be heated until almost completely liquid. (DO NOT BOIL).
  4. Continue to heat at 30 second intervals until a liquid consistency. Stir well.
  5. Add 2 oz. of fragrance oil and mix well.
  6. Add a few drops of color to lotion until a light pink color is achieved.
  7. While lotion is still in a liquid form, pour the lotion into 8 bottles until they are all filled (a funnel might be helpful when doing this).  If the lotion cools too much you can re-heat it in the microwave. Or you can transfer it to a ziploc bag and continue filling the bottles.
  8. Let lotion cool completely before capping bottles to avoid condensation forming on inside of bottles.
  9. Once cooled, apply caps and label product accordingly.
  10. Repeat steps 1-8 with the remaining ½ gallon of lotion to fill the next 8 bottles for a total of 16 bottles of lotion.
