|Spring is definitely here and that means summer is on its way. Here in Utah, that means that we are already seeing the beginning signs of dry skin. I wanted to make a lotion that would help the skin retain its moisture. Keeping the skin moisturized is very important because it helps the skin retain its youthful appearance. Come fight the signs of aging with this dry skin fighting moisturizer!
I used Hydrovance because it is a super moisturizer and does not leave behind the stickiness of glycerin. Try this lotion. Apply it to the back of one hand and not the other. At the end of the day, note how each hand feels. One will be soft and silky; the other will be dry, scaly and rough. Don’t believe me? Request a sample in your order today! Try the power (and enjoy the luxury) of Hydrovance today.
Tamanu Oil was also added to the formulation. (I couldn’t resist.) As many of you know, I absolutely adore Tamanu Oil. I believe this oil should have a place in every soap makers closet, on every vanity and in every medicine cabinet. It is so incredible in soften the skin and helping the skin stay hydrated. I can’t say enough good things about Tamanu Oil!
Collect Needed Items:
Weigh everything except the Optiphen into a microwave safe container. Heat gently until liquid. Using an immersion blender, mix the solution together. Stir occasionally while the lotion cools. When the lotion has cooled to below 120 F, the Optiphen can then be added. Stir well and pour into containers. Enjoy!
Note: I did not add a fragrance to this lotion. If you would like a fragrance, add it with the Optiphen in this recipe. Remember, the sky is the limit.
Dry Skin Lotion 8
VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]Dry Skin Lotion,
great timing for this formula. I have been trying to come up with something really similiar to this and you have saved me so much work!
This lotion sounds fantastic. I may have to include tamanu oil in some future order.
I’ve been wanting to make some lotions, but would like to try some samples before I get started. Andee has suggested we can ask for samples to see which ones we like best. That would be wonderful.
Thanks very much.
I just received a sample of this lotion and stroked onto my hands immediately – wow! – and then rushed into my workroom to check out the formula. This cream felt so good – and I would swear that there was some sort of added fragrance and was surprised that none had been included. So I checked the fragrances of the components and realized that the Tamanu Oil contributes to the lovely fragrance – exquisite.
I’m so ”over the moon” about this lotion and will be making some tomorrow! Luckily I have everything needed – thanks to you and my ”late in the night” shopping.
Thank you so much for enabling me to be impressive!
I am so glad you enjoyed this lotion! Yippee! I am so glad we help make you look great!
Let us know how your lotion goes.
I’d like to try this lotion, but I’m gluten-intolerant and don’t know for sure if wheat germ oil will affect me negatively. In a “better-safe-than-sorry” mode, what would be the best substitute for the wheat-germ oil?
If you have any of the following oils, these would be our recommendations for substituting in place of the Wheat Germ.
Apricot Kernel Oil
Cranberry Seed Oil
Hemp Seed Oil
Red Raspberry Seed Oil
I would agree completely with you that it is better to be safe than sorry. I hope this helps!
Thank you! I have a few of those; looks like I get to play this weekend!
