How to Make Lotion: Skin Care PreservativesHow to Make Lotion: Skincare Preservatives

Also, it is important to create any cosmetic recipe with some kind of a preservative. This makes sure that your finished product will last longer and can be stored without the worry of bacteria and various germs taking over. So, adding Optiphen preservative to your homemade lotion recipes will kill germs and keep your products safe. However, you need to make sure that you add this cosmetic ingredient when your recipe is between 120 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This ensures that the Optiphen doesn’t burn off at a high temperature but the lotion is still warm enough to incorporate without separating. Also, the Optiphen has a usage rate of 0.75 to 1.5%. So, you can create quality bath and body recipes that are well preserved.

How to Make Lotion: Cosmetic Emulsifiers

Another important cosmetic ingredient for making lotion from scratch is the emulsifier. This wholesale ingredient allows the water and the cosmetic oils to bind together. Otherwise, your homemade recipe would separate into two layers. Not only would your recipe look wrong, but it wouldn’t be as effective without the emulsifying wax either.
