Recipe/Process: Creamy Full Face & Body Lotion
- 75 grams apricot kernel oil
- 5.0 grams aloe vera gel
- 50 grams almond oil
- 2.5 grams citric acid
- 25 grams stearic acid
- 40 grams polowax
- 25 grams castor oil
- 22.5 grams glycerin
- 750 grams water
- 3 grams Germall Plus
- 2 grams fragrance
Combine and mix all of the ingredients together, except the Germall Plus and the fragrance oil, in a Pyrex container or a double boiler. Heat until all of the waxes have melted and there are no solidified pieces in the pot. When all of the waxes have fully melted, remove from heat. Stir with a stick blender and allow to cool until you can no longer see any steam. When the mixture becomes lukewarm and cools below 50 C, mix in the Germall Plus and the fragrance oil, stirring them in thoroughly. Use a hand blender and mix using short bursts of power. Mix the ingredients thoroughly. Pour the mixture into bottles and if you would personally prefer colored lotion, you can add in the color when the lotion base becomes lukewarm.
