Learning Curve Lotion 4

3.89 Gallons of Lotion

3.89 Gallons of Lotion

This recipe is the lotion recipe I described yesterday in my conversion disaster. I promise I am giving you a smaller batch than I made originally. This lotion is a thicker lotion and very creamy when being applied. When finished applying, this lotion has a fabulous silky finish. I hope everyone gets a chance to try this lotion. It is worth it.

Microwave Safe Container
Immersion Blender
Transfer Pipettes
Spoon (I prefer a rubber scraper)
Containers for finished product

These are the ingredients that you will need for this recipe.

Stearic Acid
Emulsifying Wax
Mango Oil
Avocado Oil
Apricot Kernel Oil
Golden Jojoba Oil
Shea Oil
Sunflower Oil
Water, Reverse Osmosis
Liquid Germall Plus

Here is the recipe in percentages. This will allow you to formulate the recipe to fit your needs.

Recipe in Percentages
1% Glycerin
2% Stearic Acid
4.2% Emulsifying Wax
1.4% Mango Oil
3.2% Avocado Oil
3.8% Apricot Kernel Oil
2% Golden Jojoba Oil
1% Shea Oil
3.2% Sunflower Oil
77.6% Water, Reverse Osmosis
.5% Liquid Germall Plus

Here is the recipe. It will make a batch total of 500 grams.

Recipe for 500 Grams
5 grams Glycerin
10 grams Stearic Acid
21 grams Emulsifying Wax
7 grams Mango Oil
16 grams Avocado Oil
19 grams Apricot Kernel Oil
10 grams Golden Jojoba Oil
5 grams Shea Oil
16 grams Sunflower Oil
388 grams Water, Reverse Osmosis
2.5 grams Liquid Germall Plus

Weigh all of the ingredients except Liquid Germall Plus into a microwaveable container. Heat until all of the ingredients have melted. Using an immersion blender, mix until blended. Allow the solution to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit before adding the Liquid Germall Plus. Stir occasionally while you are waiting for the mixture to cool. You do not want your lotion to separate. If you wish to add any fragrances or color, now would be the time. Mix the preservative into the lotion until well blended. Allow the lotion to cool to room temperature. You may now put the lotion into containers. The 500 gram batch is about 16 fl oz so you can make four 4 fl oz bottles, two 8 fl oz bottles or any variation you desire. Enjoy!

    This recipe sounds lovely! Can’t wait to try it, but can I substitute sodium lactate for the glycerin?

    Also can’t wait to try this. Any chance I could sub mango butter for the mango oil or will there be to big a difference.

      This will make the mixture more viscous, if you don’t like lotions that are too thick, then I would stay with a much softer butter or a liquid oil.
