Make a Few Preparations for the Soy Lotion Recipe

Before you begin creating your diy lotion, you will want to make a few preparations. First, you will need to gather and wash any equipment you are going to need to make this wholesale lotion recipe. Also, you will want to gather all of your lotion making equipment that will be needed for you to create this bath and body recipe. Next, you are going to want to clean up a space for you to use as a work area. You will want to clear off enough space for you to work comfortably.

Sanitizing The Water for Your Soy Lotion Recipe

If you don’t have distilled water, then you are going to need to prepare your water. You will need to boil your water to destroy any germs that may have been present. So, you will need to fill your pot with water and boil it. Also, be sure to add more than 48 ounces of water as some of the water will evaporate during this process. Having extra water will ensure that you have enough for this lotion recipe. Now, you will need to make sure your water reaches at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit. You can use your thermometer to make sure that your boiling water reaches this temperature. Then, you will need to keep your water at this temperature for at least five minutes. After waiting for this amount of time, your water will be ready to use. So, you can remove the water from the stove and weigh out the water for this lotion recipe.

Weighing and Cooling the Water For the Soy Lotion RecipeWeighing and Cooling the Water for the Soy Lotion Recipe

Now, you are ready to weigh out the water for this bath and body recipe. You will want to add this amount to a medium sized mixing bowl. So, you will need to measure out 48 ounces of the water. Before you can move on to the next step in the process, you will need to make sure that your water has cooled to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. If you proceed with making your lotion too soon, you could ruin your homemade lotion recipe. Adding water that is still too hot can break down ingredients in the base itself.

Weigh Out the Wholesale Lotion Base For the Soy Lotion RecipeWeigh Out the Wholesale Lotion Base for the Soy Lotion Recipe

Next, you are going to weigh out the wholesale lotion base for the soy lotion recipe. This recipe is going to require the entire container of wholesale lotion base. So, you will need to weigh out 16 ounces of the Natural Soy Body Butter Lotion Base and add it to a mixing bowl.

The Wholesale Lotion Base For the Soy Lotion RecipeThe Wholesale Lotion Base for the Soy Lotion Recipe

This bath and body recipe includes a fantastic wholesale lotion base! Our Natural Soy Body Butter uses a variety of conditioning oils and other cosmetic ingredients that are perfect for skincare. This lotion base will yield stable emulsions with a light texture. Further, this lotion base shows a very good emolliency without any greasy after-feel as the conditioning properties sink down into the skin. As this base is fully saturated, it is not prone to rancidity. So, you can enjoy the convenience of using a lotion base as well as the beneficial skincare properties of a lotion that is made from scratch!

Adding the Cosmetic Colorant and Mica to the Soy Lotion RecipeAdding the Cosmetic Colorant to the Soy Lotion Recipe

Once you have added the lotion base in your mixing bowl, you are going to be adding the cosmetic colorants to your lotion recipe. So, you will need to add 4 drops of the Blue Da Bomb Soap Dye and 9 drops of the Red Da Bomb Soap Dye to your scented lotion recipe. Once these are added, you are ready for the next step in the process.

Adding Additional Cosmetic Ingredients to the Soy Lotion Recipe

Now, we are going to be adding some more ingredients to the soy body butter base. Since we are adding additional carrier oils to the lotion base, we are going to need to make sure we don’t add over 3% total oil based on the finished product weight. This maximum of added oils will make sure that your finished lotion is fully emulsified and that there are no excess oils that haven’t mixed in. So, you will be able to create a non greasy homemade lotion. For this homemade lotion recipe we are going to use just under 2% of the NG CanCan Type fragrance oil and 1% of the argan oil. You can find the exact amounts of each that were included in the steps below.

Scenting Your Soy Lotion RecipeScenting Your Soy Lotion Recipe

Now, you are going to be using a rate of 2% to scent your lotion recipe. So, you will need to weigh out 1.25 ounces of the NG CanCan Type Fragrance Oil. This scented oil has an aroma of fresh mandarin that is balanced with hints of apple peel to open up this feminine fragrance. At the heart of this scent, jasmine, violet and lily form a floral accord that balances notes of woodland fern and hints of berry. Further, the scent ends on a blended base of sensual cashmere musk, golden amber and vanilla bean creates a romantic sweetness that surrounds the floral notes. This fragrance is perfect for making long-lasting scented lotion that is absolutely irresistible!

Adding the Argan Oil to the Soy Lotion RecipeAdding the Argan Oil to the Soy Lotion Recipe

Next, you are going to be using the 1% rate to add the argan oil to your mixture. This will provide some additional conditioning properties to your finished product. So, you are going to add 0.5 ounces of the Argan Oil to your lotion mixture. After adding this cosmetic oil, you can use your stick blender to mix everything together. This wholesale cosmetic oil is easily absorbed into the skin and is fantastic for making quality skincare recipes. Further, this lotion making ingredient allows the skin to breathe and is in many anti-acne formulations. So, this is a great cosmetic oil for your skincare products!

Combine All of the Soy Lotion Recipe IngredientsCombine All of the Soy Lotion Recipe Ingredients

Now, you are going to need to thoroughly mix all of these ingredients together. You are going to need to use a stick blender to combine all of these ingredients thoroughly. As your mixture continues to cool, it will thicken up on its own. Once you have fully mixed in all of these wholesale cosmetic ingredients, you are ready to add the last ingredient.

Adding the Mica Powder to the Soy Lotion RecipeAdding the Mica Powder to the Soy Lotion Recipe

Lastly, you are going to add in some shimmery powdered mica. So, you are going to want to include 4 teaspoons of the Diamond Dust Mica Pigment in your lotion mixture. Now that everything has been mixed together well, you will need to let your lotion cool down to room temperature. So, you can leave your lotion recipe in the mixing bowl for the moment. 

Fill the Bottles For Your Soy Lotion Recipe Fill the Bottles For Your Soy Lotion Recipe

Once your homemade hand lotion has cooled to about room temperature, you are ready to fill your lotion bottles. So, you are going to need to set out about six of the 8 ounce clear bottles on your work space. You will be adding your thickened lotion to your wholesale lotion bottles. We suggest that you either use a funnel or a Ziplock bag to add your scented lotion to the containers. If you use a Ziplock bag, you will need to cut a hole in the corner to act as a spout for adding the lotion to the bottle. After you have used all of the lotion to fill your bottles, you can secure the white disc lids to top of each bottle.

Decorate The Bottles For the Soy Lotion Recipe Decorate The Bottles For the Soy Lotion Recipe

Now that all of your lotion bottles are filled, you are ready to move on to decorating your containers! So, you are going to need your hot glue gun, bling ribbon, and rhinestone. You are going to need to cut a piece of the ribbon that is the diameter of the bottle. So, you will be able to wrap this ribbon around the center of the bottle. Then, you will need to use a hot glue gun to secure the ribbon in place. After the ribbon is in place, you are going to adhere the pink acrylic rhinestone to the center of the ribbon where you had previously glued the ends down. Now, you will want to add this decoration to each of your filled lotion bottles.

Using the Finished Soy Lotion Recipe

Finally, you are ready to use your completed lotion recipe. Of course, you can use your homemade lotion right away to nourish and care for your skin. Also, you can store your finished homemade lotion that isn’t greasy for later or even use this scented lotion in your body care business. No matter how you choose to use your easy homemade lotion, you will be sure to love the skincare properties that it will provide for you!

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Prepare and Sanitize

Before you get started on making your homemade bath and body recipe, you will want to make sure that you are properly prepared. First, you will need to make sure that all the equipment that you will need is sanitized and ready for you to use. If any of your necessary equipment isn’t ready to use, then you will need to clean this equipment with soap and water. Also, you will need to make sure that your work space is clean and free of clutter. Another preparation that you will want to make is gathering all of your necessary ingredients. This will make the process of creating homemade lotion easier and even more fun! Once your ingredients, equipment, and work space are ready to use, then you will be ready to get started with this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double BoilerCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Double Boiler

The last thing that you are going to want to set up before getting started with your cosmetic recipe is your double boiler. Anyone that already has a double boiler can move on to starting this cosmetic recipe. If you don’t already have a double boiler of your own, then you can make your own with supplies that you likely already have at your home. You will need to use two differently sized pots to create your double boiler. You will want to make sure that the smaller pot will fit into the larger pot. So, you can use the larger pot to hold the boiling water. Then, place your smaller pot inside the larger pot. You will need to make sure that the water won’t boil over. Once your water is boiling you will fill your smaller pot with the cosmetic ingredients that you need to melt.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Preparing the Water Phase

First, you are going to prepare the water phase for your homemade conditioner. Before you weigh out the water for your cosmetic recipe, you will want to boil the water to kill germs. So, you will need to start with at least 850 grams of distilled water. It is important to have extra water before you begin boiling because some of the water will evaporate. You will need to heat your water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit and hold this high temperature for at least 20 minutes. This will help you to destroy any bacteria that could be in the water.

Preparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed HerbPreparing the Water Phase: Add the Chickweed Herb

Now, we are going to create a tea using the chick weed herb.  This is just one way to infuse an herb into handmade lotions.  So, we will create a strong tea.  Fill three tea bags with the chickweed herb.  You will need about 3 tablespoons of the herb for each tea bag.  Then, add them to your water as it is boiling.  Chick weed herb is a wonderful herb that is wonderful for dry itchy skin.  American Indians were known for using chickweed for wounds and rashes.  Many use it to help with skin conditions like eczema, psoriasis, and boils.  Chickweed helps with cell-proliferation.  This helps wounds heal faster.

Next, you are going to be preparing the oil phase of your refreshing body cream recipe. So, you are going to need to weigh out some of your cosmetic oils. You will need to use 16 grams of Stearic Acid, 48 grams of the Emulsifying Wax, 80 grams of Argan Oil, 36 grams of Lanolin Oil, and 20 grams of Cocoa Butter. After you have your ingredients measured, you will be ready to begin melting your scented lotion ingredients. Now, you can add all of these cosmetic supplies to your smaller pot. You will want to occasionally stir your ingredients as they are melting to avoid possible scorching. Once all of your body cream supplies are in a fluid state, you are ready to move on to the next step.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized WaterCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Weighing the Sterilized Water

Once your water has been boiling for at least 20 minutes you will be ready to use your freshly sterilized water. Now, you can remove your water from the heat source, remove the tea bags, and weigh out 706 grams of your sterilized water. You can add this water to your medium mixing bowl. While you need to wait before mixing the cosmetic oils and water, you can move on to the next step in this bath and body recipe.

Cucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water TogetherCucumber Mint Body Cream Recipe: Mixing Your Oil and Water Together

Before you can mix your cosmetic oils with your prepared tea you need to make sure that these two phases are at the right temperature. The temperature is extremely important to ensure that the cosmetic ingredients emulsify with the water. Otherwise, your finished product will separate and not serve as a good lotion recipe. These two phases should each be at about 140 degrees Fahrenheit before combining the two. Also, you will want these phases to be no more than 10 degrees apart. You can use your candy thermometer to monitor the temperatures. Once you have the correct temperature, you can add both the water and oil to a larger mixing bowl. Then, you can use a stick blender to combine these two phases well. If you notice that your mixture is beginning to turn white as you continue to blend, then you will know that your mixture is emulsifying.

Now that the water and cosmetic oils have been completely emulsified, you are going to want to let your mixture cool. So, you will want to monitor the temperature until it reaches about 120 degrees Fahrenheit. You will want to be careful that you don’t go any lower than this temperature before you add your remaining cosmetic ingredients. Now you will need to weigh and add 10 grams of the Vitamin E Oil, 14 grams of the Optiphen Preservative, and 12 grams of the Cucumber Mint Fragrance Oil to your mixture. Again, you will want to use a stick blender to mix these newly added ingredients into your previously emulsified mixture.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Clean and Prepare

Before you begin creating your own scented lotion recipe, you may want to make a few preparations. First, you will want to gather your supplies for creating this recipe. Although this recipe doesn’t have very many ingredients, it can be useful to collect what you need before making your bath and body product. Also, prepare your equipment to make sure this process goes smoothly. Further, make sure that your equipment is all clean prior to starting to make your lotion recipe. Next, you will want to prepare an area that you can use to work on your cosmetic recipe. After you have made these preparations, you should be ready to work!

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Sanitizing the Water

Now that you have created your double boiler you are ready to sanitize and prepare your water. First, you will need to make sure that you have enough water to make your lotion. So, you will need at least seven and a half ounces of water. However, we would recommend that you add some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water remaining after some of the water evaporates. You will need to heat the water to at least 185 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once you have your water at the proper temperature keep the water at this temperature for at a minimum of five minutes. Now that your water is sanitized, you are ready to create your scented lotion recipe!

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Cooling Your Sanitized Water

Now that any bacteria that may have been living in the water has been killed off, you can use this water to create this cosmetic lotion recipe. Although you needed to heat the water to sanitize it, you will need to cool the water before you can use it. Otherwise, the boiling hot water could potentially break down the lotion base, which would ruin the ingredients in the multi base. So, you will need to wait for your water’s temperature to drop to about 100 degrees Fahrenheit. While you wait for the temperature to lower to the proper temperature you can prepare some of your other cosmetic ingredients.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance OilShimmering Lotion Recipe: Measuring the Fragrance Oil

First, you can measure out the fragrance for you scented lotion recipe. So, grab and medium mixing bowl and some disposable pipettes. Since our disposable pipettes have measurements along the side, you can use one of these pipettes to measure out 9 milliliters of the Frost and Snowdrops Fragrance Oil. You will love the romantic aroma of this fragrance oil in your lotion recipe. This scent begins with top notes of refreshing winter air that are followed by the aroma of sweet winter flowers. Finally, this fragrance has base notes of iced musk, vanilla, and sandalwood. So, this is a fantastic ingredient that you can add to this lovely bath and body recipe.

So, this premade mixture has all the cosmetic ingredients that you need to make a great homemade lotion!

If you are interested in learning a bit more about what is in our natural soy butter, then check out some of the cosmetic ingredients. First, this lotion bases contains sunflower oil, soya oil, vegetable glycerin, tocopherol (vitamin E), meadowfoam oil, jojoba oil, soya milk, aloe vera,  and vitamin C. These ingredients are included to nourish and care for the skin in various ways. Not only does this base nourish the skin, but it provides light texture and doesn’t leave behind a greasy feel. Further, this lotion base includes Germall Plus, which acts as a preservative. We include up to 1% of this preservative in our formulations. Although you can use up to 5% of this preservative safely, you can use 0.1 to 0.2 percent of Germall Plus to effectively preserve your lotion.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Sanitized WaterShimmering Lotion Recipe: Adding the Sanitized Water

Now that your water has cooled, you are ready to add it to the lotion base. If you didn’t wait for the water to cool down properly, you could’ve potentially ruined the lotion base. This could occur because a multi base can start to break down once it gets too hot. So, you can retrieve your medium mixing bowl to add the sanitized water. Now, use your scale to measure out seven and a half ounces of water. Although your water won’t be scorching hot, it should still be warm enough, at one hundred degrees Fahrenheit, to melt the lotion base as the lotion making ingredients are mixed together.

Shimmering Lotion Recipe: Mixing the Cosmetic Ingredients TogetherShimmering Lotion Recipe: Mixing the Cosmetic Ingredients Together

Next, we are going to emulsify these three cosmetic ingredients to create our scented lotion. So, you will need to use a stick blender to mix these ingredients thoroughly. Once all of your ingredients have been blended together fully, you will be finished with the mixer. Although your mix of cosmetic ingredients will be a bit thin at this point, the scented bath and body recipe will thicken as this the ingredients cool. Since we have a few more ingredients to add, your lotion should be ready to scoop into the wholesale cosmetic jars once everything has been combined.
