|Today I am adding some color to the baby ointment. I need to be careful not to put anything that will cause skin irritation in the formula. I chose Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil! If you have not used Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil before, let me say this is a brilliant orange color that definitely intensely colors anything it is added to. Look at my picture when I was adding the Seabuckthorn to my beaker. It really stands out! Seabuckthorn also has some regenerative properties for the skin.
Recipe: Yields 100 grams or 3.53 ounces.
This mixture is just as fluid as Day 2’s formula but with some added wow with the color. I was very pleased with today’s formula. When put on the skin there is hardly any difference between Day 2 and Day 3 formulations, but it was all about the color. When all of the ingredients are melted the mixture will be a brilliant clear orange, but when it solidifies it turns an opaque orange similar to fresh pumpkin puree. I am still not 100% satisfied. The final product might be a little too strong of an orange for me (I did add 2% Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil) so I might try to lighten the overall color. I am also really loving the Lanolin in this formula and might want to add even more, and retest.
