Lotion Making Tutorial
In this post, I will show you how to make the natural body lotion I shared in this post link.
In this post, I will share how to formulate a STABLE natural body lotion. I will include some percentages which you can customize. Lotions, at their core, are three different ingredients—water, oil, and emulsifier. As you know, water and oil do not mix. They need something to aid in dispersing one into another. The emulsifier we will use today is Ritamulse SCG (INCI: Glyceryl Stearate, Ceteryl Alcohol, and Sodium Stearoyl Lactylate). This emulsifier is a complete emulsifier that can be used in a pH range of 5-7.5. The max oil phase you can have is 25%. It is suggested usage rate is 2-10%. I have found from doing real-time stability testing that It should be 6% or greater. In this formulation, I am going to be using 6%.
Summer Cooling Mist
Free Aloe Gel Formulation
With summer approaching, I wanted to share my aloe gel formulation. I did make this formulation natural. I was also able to use a natural green extract for the color, Ellam Pazchai Light Green Water Soluble Powder. For full disclosure, the Ellam Pazchai Light Green Water Soluble Powder (not an affiliate link)was sent to me for free from Essential Whole Sale and Labs. This formulation is quite basic. You can alter it to whatever you have. Note that with that, your choice needs to be able to handle electrolytes.
My other community page has a horrible comment processer. I made this post where you can ask me and other people who have access to the blog. I will replace the link and link it on the side bar.
Note: If you need formulation help, please list the full formulation with INCI names, percentages, and method. That will make it a lot easier to help that way.
Terms and Conditions:
