We’ve included ingredients such as cocoa power and mica to create an natural bronzing lotion that is soft and shines. Not only can you obtain a light summer glow, but a touch of sparkle as well.

Materials need for this recipe:

Sweet Almond Oil

Cocoa Butter Golden Natural

Sun Your Buns Fragrance Oil

SODIUM LACTATE

BTMS 25 Emulsifier

FRACTIONATED COCONUT Oil

VITAMIN E OIL (Tocopherol T-50) Natural

24K Gold Mica

8 oz.  White PET Bullet Bottles

White Lotion Pumps 24/410

Distilled Water

Mixing Bowls

Stainless Steel Spoon

Stovetop

Melting Pot

Stick Blender

Scale
Begin by getting your work area ready. You will want to clean and sanitize your area and all of your packaging supplies. We also suggest that you wear you’re a hair net, gloves, and protective clothing while preparing this shimmering bronzing lotion recipe.
DSC_0592First prepare your water.  Some water will evaporate during this process.  For this reason you will want plenty of extra water.  You will need to have 425 grams of distilled water when you make the lotion.  Heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit.  Once you water reaches this temperature, keep it there for at least 20 minutes.  Doing this will destroy any bacteria that is in the water.  After 20 minutes has passed, remove the water from the stove top and use a scale to weigh out 425 grams.  To the bowl containing the water add 8 grams of Sodium Lactate.  Once added, mix well to combine the sodium lactate and water.  Set this mixture aside for the moment, you will need it a bit later.

DSC_0594Now, in a separate pot, weigh out 30 grams of the Fractionated Coconut Oil, 28 grams of the Sweet Almond Oil, 28 grams of the BTMS, 5 grams of the Golden Natural Cocoa Butter, 5 grams of Unrefined Shea Butter, 6 grams of Vitamin E.  Melt these ingredients using a double boiler.

 

Once the oils are melted and the temperature has reached around 140 degrees Fahrenheit, work quickly to add 14 grams of Natures Garden’s Sun Your Buns fragrance oil, 10 grams of Cocoa Powder Organic, and 5 grams of our 24K Gold Mica.

You will once again need to move quickly for this next part.  You want to be certain that the oils and butters are both around 140 degrees Fahrenheit. If they are not around the same temperature they may not emulsify.  Using a large mixing bowl, combine the oil mixture and the water mixture.   Using a stick blender, begin mixing.

 

DSC_0577When the mixture has reached 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add the optiphen preservative.  Again the temperature is very important.  If you add the preservative when the temperature is too hot, it will burn off.  However, if the temperature is too low, it will separate out of the lotion.  So, at 120 degrees Fahrenheit, add 10 grams of the Optiphen preservative.  Once again, use a stick blender to fully incorporate the Optiphen.

Finally, let your bronzing lotion cool to room temperature and then place it into your white PET bottles and place a white pump on top.

With summer on the horizon, this is perfect for anyone looking for a light golden glow. This shimmering bronzer lotion recipe is perfect for a shimmer and bronze glow without sunbathing.
