Special Request Lotion 6

The story behind this lotion is quite entertaining. I would recommend taking a moment to read the story on the Special Request Lotion recipe page. I think this creamy lotion would be a great bribery for any handyman with its fresh and clean masculine scent.

About Andee

Director of Happiness. I'm a thirty-something soap snob. I've grown up with handmade soaps, and I love them! I really like making lotions, soaps, and perfumes. I adore mixing scents to come up with something new. My favorite scent is either Wicked or Cotton Candy. I tend to hoard fragrances, I even have an Earl Grey Tea from the MMS catalog. I won't tell you how old it is, but it sure is good!

    I love the step by step pictures showing what things look like at different phases. While these are great for the small sample batches we all make, could you talk about or show us pictures of MMS’s large batch processes for soap and lotions? By large batches I mean 25 pounds of soap or 3 gallons of lotion etc.

      Certainly. I can show you a large batch of lotion and you can see it dispensed into bottles.

      Larger batches of mean more molds/bottles and a pail with a spigot.

    Can this recipe be changed to have only one butter and 1 oil with the same quantity measurements that is in the recipe? I prefer paraben free preservatives. Can you suggest a good paraben free preservative that would work in this lotion?

    Yes I have preservatives. They are paraben free. I have Suttocide A and Liquid Germall Plus. I think that is all I have. I have mango and kokum butter.
