Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need:
Stainless Steel Spoon
Total Recipe Weights:
425 grams of Distilled Water (but you will
want to have overage to offset evaporation)
28 grams Rice Bran Oil
30 grams Fractionated Coconut Oil
24 grams BTMS
10 grams Mango Butter
8 grams Sodium Lactate
6 grams Vitamin E Oil
10 grams Optiphen
12 grams Papaya Dragon Fruit Fragrance Oil
5 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye
7 drops Da Bomb Soap Dye Blue
Prep Your Area: Clean
and sanitize your work area. You will also need to sanitize all of your packaging
materials. It is also advised that you wear your gloves, protective
clothing, and a hair net during
the making of this recipe.
Water Phase: Weigh out your distilled water. Make sure to include extra water so that you
have enough (425 grams) for the recipe.
Now, heat the water to at least 180F. Once the
water hits this temperature, hold it there for 20 minutes. This
will destroy any bacteria that is in
the water. Then, remove the water from
the heat source and weigh out the 425 grams.
To this amount, add the sodium lactate.
Stir and then set aside.
The Oil Phase: Now, in a small pot, weigh out and combine the following
ingredients: BTMS 25, Mango Butter, Rice
Bran Oil, Fractionated Coconut Oil, and Vitamin E Oil. Heat all of these ingredients to 140F, using the double boiler process. Stirring occasionally.
Mixing Phase: Moving quickly,
ensure that your water phase
and oil phase mixtures are both around 140F. Then, in a large mixing bowl combine the oils mixture and the water. Blend this well with a stick blender. As you blend, you will notice the mixture will turn white in color. This is showing you that your lotion is
beginning to emulsify.
Phase: Next, allow your mixture to cool. The
temperature that you are looking for is 120F.
At this point, add the Optiphen preservative, colorant, and fragrance oil. Mix thoroughly once again. Finally, allow your lotion to cool to room
temperature and then
place it into your bottles.
