Handmade Lotion RecipesHandmade Lotion Recipes

In today’s world, most people like to make their own soaps, bath and body products and even cosmetics. Generally, creating those things are not hard at all. Not only do you know the ingredients that will go in your product, but you can make the product to fit your needs or the needs of your customers or loved ones. Many people nowadays have skin issues that require skin-sensitive ingredients. That is another reason why many people turn to handmade goods. And like we stated before, it isn’t hard to do. Take a look through some of Nature’s Garden handmade lotion recipes. You will see how really simply and easy it is to make lotion. Also, with only a few ingredients, you can make a perfectly beautiful lotion that could rival the most expensive store brands out there in the market!

 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Some Key Ingredients

Before we get started on our recipes, let’s familiarize ourselves with some of the key ingredients that you need to make lotion with. Really you can make a lotion with just shea butter and coconut oil whipped together. However, while those things will soften and hydrate your skin, they can separate while sitting when water is added. Another thing, they may not absorb into your skin very well, leaving you feeling greasy and sticky. The following components that we will discuss are key to getting a beautiful emulsified lotion that will not leave your skin feeling tacky and absorb beautifully.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 EmulsifierHandmade Lotion Recipes: BTMS 25 Emulsifier

Our first ingredient is Behentrimonium Methosulfate (and) Cetearyl Alcohol, or BTMS 25 Emulsifier is a natural, conditioning emulsifier that can be used in hair and skin care. BTMS is naturally derived from Colza oil. Colza oil is a non-drying oil that is obtained from seeds of the rapeseed plant. It isn’t truly rapeseed oil, but a derivative of it. BTMS can be used in creams and lotions to provide a soft, powdery feel to the skin and is very gentle on the skin and hair.

Handmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and SilkyHandmade Lotion Recipes:  Emulsifying Wax, Traditional and Silky

Next ingredient is our two other emulsifying waxes. We have Emulsifying Wax- Traditional and Silky Emulsifying Wax. While these waxes are not 100 percent natural, they are partial plant based and give wonderful structure to any type of lotion, cream, shampoo or conditioner. Both traditional and silky are self-emulsifying, low odor, highly stable, and highly compatible. Low concentrations of these waxes will improve the consistency and stability of emulsions. Which one do you choose for your product? Which ever you want! So, what exactly is the difference? The only difference is silky will give your lotion a lovely, silky-soft feel to you skin long after the lotion or cream has absorbed.  They can be used interchangeably.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen PreservativeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Optiphen Preservative

Preservatives are essential to cosmetic formulations because they kill germs that can make you and your customers very sick. Optiphen is a liquid, paraben-free and formaldehyde-free preservative that provides broad spectrum preservation against bacteria, yeast and mold, the presence of caprylyl glycol. It also imparts an exceptional feel to the finished formulation which makes it useful in creams, sunscreens, lotions, cosmetics, body washes and shampoo recipes. This is a definite must have in any of your water based bath and body products that are created from scratch.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Stearic Acid and Sodium Lactate

Stearic Acid is a plant based ingredient that is widely used in bath and body products, soaps and even in candles. For bath and body products, it is a wonderful addition to thicken up your product. In soaps, it is used to harden your bars of soap and to make them last longer. When used in candles, it also helps harden the wax and is perfect for making pillar candles or any type of mold candle. Another option is sodium lactate. Sodium lactate is a natural moisturizer, humectant, and pH regulator. It is used in handmade soaps, lotions, shampoo, and other bath and body products.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: Distilled Water

Yes, distilled water is an important ingredient to any of your lotions. You will see in any of our lotion recipes, that we ask you to heat your distilled water up to a specific ingredient and hold it there for 20 minutes. This is to ensure that you have destroyed any bacteria that may have been lingering around in the water.

Handmade Lotion Recipe: The Phases

Also you will notice that each recipe is done in phases. You have your Water Phase, which is where you are heating your water up. The Oil Phase. This is where you will heat and melt any of your butters and oils and waxes to a specific temperature. Next will be the Mixing Phase. Your will then mix together your water and butter and oils with a stick blender to emulsify. Lastly, you have your Cool Down Phase where you allow the lotion mixture to cool to a specific temperature before adding your fragrance oil and Optiphen. Then, you will package up your lotion and label if desired and you are ready to gift everybody you love with some handmade love! Now, let’s talk about our recipes!

Our Frappe Mocha Body Cream is perfect for those with a coffee addiction! This cream is made with cocoa butter and sweet almond Oil. Both are perfect for making your skin feel soft and silky.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Natural Face Cream Recipe

This cream recipe is a favorite of mine. Natural Face Cream is made with an infusion of calendula flowers.  Calendula is believed to reduce inflammation, reduce acne, and promote healthy skin, which makes this a perfect addition to a night cream. Also, we have included Avocado Oil and Grapeseed Oil. Grapeseed oil does not clog pores, absorbs easily into the skin, does not leave a greasy feel to the skin, and provides the skin with anti inflammatory properties.  It is high in linoleic acid; providing mosturizing effects to the skin. Avocado Oil is a rich, moisturizing oil that is perfect for those with sensitive skin. This lotion is also available in a kit.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Rose Lotion Recipe

Back in the 1970s there was a lotion my grandmother used a lot. It was called Rose Milk lotion and our Rose Lotion recipe truly reminds me of her when I use it. We infused our distilled water with our red Rose Buds & Petals. Rose water is the perfect addition to any skin-care regime. Its use dates back to days of Cleopatra and has many incredible benefits to its use. Rose water is perfect for any type of skin. It has antibacterial properties, anti-inflammatory and has a load of antioxidants in it. We also used cocoa butter, fractionated coconut oil and meadowfoam seed oil. Meadowfoam seed oil is a wonderful, light oil that absorbs easily into the skin, leaving you feeling soft and not greasy! We chose our Fresh Cut Roses fragrance oil to scent this beautiful lotion.

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Solid Lotion Bar Recipe

Made with shea butter, beeswax and jojoba oil, you have a lotion that absorbs quickly, seals in the moisture and keeps the winter dry skin at bay!

If you are familiar with Estee Lauder’s Beautiful perfume, then you know how good this lotion will smell!  This fragrance is a delicate rose, jasmine and carnations with undertones of sweet melon and plum!

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion RecipeHandmade Lotion Recipes: Wine Lotion Recipe

Even though it says Wine Lotion, we did not use actual wine in the recipe. However, we did use our Resveratrol Extract Powder. Resveratrol is a natural polyphenol found in in the skin of red grapes. This powder is similar in the same properties of red wine, meaning it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal properties, and is used in products that fight acne. Also, Resveratrol is used in anti-aging, anti-wrinkle cosmetic products. It will provide anti-inflammatory properties that reduce swelling.

We also included cocoa butter, grapeseed oil and Jojoba Oil. Both of these oils are wonderful for the skin! Grapeseed oil is light and non-greasy feeling on the skin.  Jojoba oil is considered a “liquid wax” and it will lock in the moisture and keeps your skin hydrated. We chose our Shiraz fragrance oil to help round out our “wine theme”. This is a beautiful, light fruity but robust red wine scent! A must try for wine lovers! 

Handmade Lotion Recipes: Chamomile Lotion Recipe

Our last recipe for today is our Chamomile Lotion Recipe. This is an easy, basic recipe that is perfect for beginners. We used apricot kernel oil and grapeseed oil. Both are light, absorb-able and non-greasy oils and are perfect when you want a light lotion. This would be a perfect summer-time lotion with no heavy oils or butters.

What is a Carrier Oil?

What is a Carrier Oil?What is a Carrier Oil?

What is a Carrier Oil? These are all the natural cosmetic oils that you can use in your homemade recipes. They are perfect for creating homemade soap, crafting a skin-loving lotion recipe, and making many of the other kinds of cosmetic recipes. So, knowing about these oils is important for creating the types of bath and body products that you need!

What is a Carrier Oil?: Making Soap Supplies

If you are looking for a good recipe for making soap, then it is going to have some carrier oils in it. Anyone making soap from scratch knows that the carrier oils you choose can influence the quality of your bars. So, these ingredients are essential for cold process soap recipes. You can see specifics on how each oil affects the soap on our Soaping Oil Properties. Even melt and pour soap recipes can benefit by adding some carrier oils to the soap base, which is often done to make the bar more conditioning to the skin.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Lotion Making

Also, our bulk carrier oils can be used to create an amazing homemade lotion recipe. These are the oils that we include to nourish and moisturize your skin. In fact, the oils are what do the majority of the skin care in lotions. While you can use butters along with your oils, they can lead to a thicker cream or even a body butter. So, lighter lotions need key carrier oils to perform effectively!

What is a Carrier Oil?: Using Essential Oils

Although essential oils are natural, they aren’t safe to put directly on your skin. Plus, adding a carrier oil will help hold on to the aroma longer than on its own. So, it is actually beneficial for your scent to mix an essential oil with a carrier oil before applying. One of the best carrier oils for essential oils would have to be Sweet Almond Oil or Argan Oil.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Kinds of Carrier OilsWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Kinds of Carrier Oils

There are many different kinds of carrier oils that you can mix together for your recipes. Depending on your skin type or level of dryness, you may want to have lighter or heavier oils. Also, some oils are better for face lotions or for foot care. So, the blend of carrier oils that you want varies based on your product and its purpose.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Apricot Kernel OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Apricot Kernel Oil

First, we have Apricot Kernel Oil, an oil that is light and excellent for skin care. While this oil is light enough to not block pores, it is conditioning enough to be a luxurious oil for cp soap. It’s great for making lotions that don’t leave a greasy feeling and skin into the skin. Also, its perfect in soap because the oil will sink into the skin quickly to fully moisturize the skin. We’ve used this wonderful oil in many bath and body recipes, including the Chamomile Light Lotion Recipe and the Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Argan OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Argan Oil

Next, we have an oil that is amazing for skin care. Argan Oil is easily absorbed into the skin and won’t leave a greasy feeling on your skin. Plus, this cosmetic oil allows your skin to breathe and doesn’t block pores. In fact, this ingredient is used in many acne-fighting recipes. We included this oil in a few cosmetic recipes, like the Argan Soap Recipe and the Sour Watermelon Sugar Scrub Cubes Recipe. In our cp soap recipe, this oil increased the lather and nourished the skin beautifully.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Avocado OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Avocado Oil

Also, adding Avocado Oil to your homemade recipes is a perfect way to increase the moisturizing ability of your product. This cosmetic ingredient is a heavy oil that is perfect for providing dry, damaged skin with the nourishment it deserves. Plus, the high level of unsaponifiable fatty acids and high vitamin content make this skin-sensitive oil great for adding some extra conditioning power to your soap bars, which you can see in the Gentle Avocado Cold Process Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Castor OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Castor Oil

Another great oil for your homemade cosmetic recipes is Castor Oil. Not only is this oil thick and perfect for nourishing dry, damaged skin, but this oil is a humectant. This means that oil will pull moisture to it, which will further moisturize your skin as it absorbs. Perfect for creating lotions for feet, like the Natural Salve Recipe , which are often one of the most damaged areas of skin. While this oil would provide some conditioning properties and a rich, creamy lather, it can make your soap sticky. So, avoid adding too much of this oil in your cp soap formulations. By limiting the amount of Castor Oil, we were able use the beneficial properties without as many drawbacks, like with our St Pattys Day Cold Process Soap Recipe as well as many other soaps.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Coconut OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Coconut Oil

Coconut Oil is a great oil for skin that sinks in well and is perfect for scrub recipes like the Foaming Hibiscus Scrub Recipe. Also, this sensitive oil is perfect to add to lip balm supplies for making recipes like the Kahlua and Cream Lip Balm Recipe. For soapmaking, this oil provides a hard bar with a bubbly lather that is cleansing. Many find that adding more than 20% of this oil is drying for the skin, so some people may include more conditioning oils to the recipe or even super fat the formula to include more oils.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Grapeseed OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Grapeseed Oil

Another fantastic oil for bath and body recipes is Grapeseed Oil. This oil is perfect for cosmetic supplies because it is a lightweight moisturizer that is effective without being too greasy for the skin. So, this oil is perfect for creating lotions sensitive enough for the face, like our Natural Facial Night Cream Recipe. Also, this oil is perfect for soap-making, like our Raspberry CP Soap Recipe. This oil is moisturizing, and even anti-acne, for soap but it doesn’t leave a greasy, heavy oil feeling on the skin.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Jojoba OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Jojoba Oil

While Jojoba Oil is technically a liquid wax, it is still fantastic for skin care products. This cosmetic ingredient is perfect for everything from lotions like our Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe to lip care products like our Green Apple Lip Balm Recipe. In your soap recipes, this cosmetic ingredient is just as conditioning as luxury oils. But, this oil has a longer shelf life.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Lanolin OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Lanolin Oil

Lanolin Oil is a great cosmetic oil that is wonderful for moisturizing and protecting damaged hair and dry skin. This oil contains very few saponifiables, so it maintains its conditioning properties and provides the bar with a silky feeling. So, we used this wonderful oil in our Strawberries and Champagne CP Soap Recipe. Also, you can use lanoin in a solid form, which still absorbs well and is great for protecting damaged skin. This thicker oil has all of the same beneficial properties and can even be used in soaps, like our Beard Soap Recipe.

Raspberry CP Soap Recipe What is a Carrier Oil?: Macadamia Nut Oil

Next, we have Macadamia Nut Oil, which is an oil that is light and perfectly absorbs into the skin. This non-greasy oil is perfect for creating lotions, like our Almond Body Cream Recipe. Also, this oil is perfect for adding conditioning properties to your soap and is even great for mature skin types. So, we included this oil in our Lavender Cold Process Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Meadowfoam Seed OilWhat is a Carrier Oil?: Meadowfoam Seed Oil

Another great oil that skins into the skin beautifully is Meadowfoam Seed Oil. Not only does this oil work to repair damaged skin, but it has a long shelf life due to its high level of antioxidants. So, it worked wonderfully in our Honey Vanilla Lip Balm Recipe. Also, this cosmetic oil can be used to superfat soap, reduce rancidity, and increase the fragrance’s lifespan. So, this oil was a great addition to our Raspberry CP Soap Recipe.

What is a Carrier Oil?: Olive Oil

Olive Oil is often a top choice for soapers, because it is very conditioning, helps harden the bar, and creates a mild bar of soap. While some soapmakers may use only olive oil in Castille soap or mostly olive oil in Marseille soap, it makes the bar a bit slimy and barely has a lather. So, many soapers will combine this oil with others to create a great soap recipe, like in our Creamy Cocoa Craziness Cold Process Soap Recipe.

Next, we have another great oil for creating soaps, which is Palm Oil. This soap making ingredient creates a hard, white bar that has a rich, creamy lather. We have used this wonderfully cleansing oil in many recipes, like our Calendula Swirl Soap Recipe and our Beer Cold Process Soap Recipe. 

You may find that your cosmetic oil has solidified, this is because the melt point is slightly above room temperature. Luckily, this is easy to fix. All you have to do is set your bottle in a bowl of warm water until the oil melts again.

Also, we have a nourishing and skin-loving oil that is perfect for homemade products. Safflower Oil is moisturizing and nourishing for the skin, so we included it in many soap recipes and our own Hair Conditioner For Redheads Recipe.

Types of Emulsifying Wax: How Does It Work?

On a molecular level, oil and water are completely different and won’t mix together on their own accord. The water is polar, which means that the negatively charged electrons are unevenly shared in the molecule. This results in water molecules having a more positive end and a more negative end. However, oils are very nonpolar. This means that oils share their negative electrons evenly. So, oil molecules don’t have any charge. While these molecules can mix with others of the same kind, they don’t like to mix with the molecules other kind.

This is where the emulsifiers come in to save the recipe! Emulsifying agents are molecules that have both a polar part on one side and a nonpolar part on another side. So, this molecule is able to mix with both the water and the oil to create a perfect blend that won’t separate!

What is Stearic Acid Used For

We at Natures Garden have found that many of our customers have been wondering, “What is stearic acid used for?”. While there are quite a few reasons why this cosmetic ingredient is widely used in both candles as well as bath and body products, it can be confusing to understand how an ingredient could be useful for all these very different products. This can be especially challenging when you don’t know exactly what benefits stearic acid provides these products. So, we are going to go through a few different products that you should formulate using this ingredient. Plus, we will be sharing some of our own recipes that have been enhanced by adding some stearic acid. If you are interested in getting an answer to this common question, then look below to find how stearic acid can benefit your favorite homemade bath and body recipes!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Homemade Creams and LotionsWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Homemade Creams and Lotions

First of all, this useful cosmetic ingredient will make a smart addition to any cream, body butter, or lotion formulation. Stearic Acid is especially useful for creating thick, luscious lotions that feel wonderful on your skin. If you think about it, this quality is really important for a great lotion recipe. Lotions that are too thin and runny will be harder to get to stay on the skin, so less of the oils and butters will get a chance to nourish the skin.

Plus, you may find that the consistency doesn’t feel as satisfying. So, you won’t really feel like you are getting pampered, even though you should with all the skin-loving ingredients being added. Further, you may even begin to wonder whether your lotion recipe is even working. This would be the exact instance where stearic acid would be needed. Adding this cosmetic ingredient to your existing lotion, cream, or body butter recipes will ensure that your recipe is thicker and more effective!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Frappe Mocha Body Cream RecipeWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe

One of our own body cream recipes that includes stearic acid is our Frappe Mocha Body Cream Recipe. This scrumptious lotion recipe includes real, fresh brewed coffee, luscious butters, and skin loving oils. But, the Stearic Acid is the ingredient that really helps create the irresistible texture of this recipe. This wonderful body cream recipe has a thick, creamy consistency that glides over the skin and sinks deep down. The luscious feeling of this lotion combined with the fragrance and skin loving properties creates quite an amazing recipe. The scrumptious scent blend of Fresh Brewed Coffee Fragrance Oil along with the Chocolate Fudge Fragrance Oil is nearly mouthwatering. Plus, the nourishing oils and butters of this recipe truly treat your skin and leave it feeling soft. This cosmetic ingredient helps create a well rounded batch of lotion that is sure to be enjoyed by everyone!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion RecipeWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe

Not only is this cosmetic ingredient useful for creating creams and body butters, but our lotion formulations can be enhanced with stearic acid, as well. The Shea Lotion with Herbal Infusion Recipe by Natures Garden is a perfect example of a lotion that can benefit from the addition of stearic acid. This recipe includes an abundance of luxurious oils along with an amazing herbal infusion. This infusion includes herbs like the gorgeous Hibiscus Flowers and Rose Hips. However, the lotion didn’t quite have the right consistency. We wanted a lotion that was creamier and thicker to provide a pampering feel. So, we included some stearic acid to create a recipe that has amazing benefits for the skin and feels absolutely luxurious. This recipe is definitely one you will want to try!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Making Your Own CandlesWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Making Your Own Candles

Additionally, Stearic Acid can be used to create harder candles that are more effective. This ingredient can be added to any of our container waxes, like Soy Wax, Joy Wax, or Palm Wax, to create a candle that has more integrity. At this point, you may be thinking that you don’t need a hard candle, as you are putting your wax in a container. However, we aren’t adding stearic acid for support. Instead, this candle making ingredient can help your candle burn longer. Since the candle will be harder, the flame will take more time burning down your candle. This means you can enjoy your beautiful candles and their lovely aromas for even longer! All thanks to adding a bit of stearic acid. So, you may want to try adding this ingredient next time you create some homemade candles.

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Homemade Wax Tarts and EmbedsWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Homemade Wax Tarts and Embeds

Also, your homemade wax tarts and candle embeds can both benefits from stearic acid. Not only will these candle creations burn longer, but they will be better able to hold their shape. Have you ever created a wax tart that was too soft? It can be nearly impossible to get the tarts out of the mold or clamshell to use. Plus, once you finally get enough out to use it just ends up making a big mess that ruins some of the enjoyment of scenting your home. But, adding some of the stearic acid will make the wax harder. Plus, the stearic acid will make your tarts shrink slightly upon cooling. This will have your wax melts to pop out of the mold so much easier! So, this ingredient will better allow you to make your own wax tarts.

Additionally, candle embeds can benefit from the addition of this candle ingredient. One of the most important parts in making a wax embed is making sure that the design you want to use doesn’t break or warp as you are working. This means that you don’t want the wax embed to melt or warp as you pour in the rest of your candle wax into your container. So, you will want an embed that is hard and not easy to melt. Plus, you are going to want to make sure that your embed soap doesn’t break before you get the chance to use it. Since your embeds are typically tiny, you are going to need to make sure that your wax is hard enough to maintain the integrity of your shape. So, adding in this cosmetic ingredient will make your wax embed harder to melt or break.

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Creating Strong Scented CandlesWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Working with Heavy Fragrance Oils

Another way that you can utilize stearic acid in candle making is to create products with any of your favorite fragrance oils! Some people have found that it can be difficult working with certain fragrances, even within the recommended amount. This is likely due to the scent being a heavy fragrance. Some examples of heavy scents have vanilla or spicy notes, while many citrus scents tend to be lighter fragrances. This can be frustrating when you find a scent that you love, but it just seeps out of your candle! However, you can use stearic acid to help reduce this seepage and get you the scented candle that you deserve. When using it for this purpose, use about 2%, which would be 2 teaspoons for a pound of wax, to reign in your challenging fragrance oil. So, go ahead and make your whole house smell exactly how you want it!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Formulating Soap RecipesWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Formulating Soap Recipes

Additionally, stearic acid can be used to enhance your homemade batches of soap. Of course, you can alter the amounts and types of oils that you include to change the quality of your bars. But, you don’t have to alter your whole formulation just to get a harder bar. Sometimes batches just have the perfect blend of oils for your skin and you don’t want to change anything.

Just include some of the stearic acid into your soap recipe to create a slightly harder bar. This is perfect for those that want a very conditioning bar, but don’t want the bars to fall apart. So, this ingredient will add some integrity to your soap bars. Further, adding this wonderful ingredient to your soap recipe will allow your soap to last even longer than before. This means that you will get even more use out of your skin-loving soap. So, all you have to do is add some stearic acid into your recipe to create a bar of soap that is harder and able to last even longer.

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Peppered Poppy Seed Cold Process Soap RecipeWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Peppered Poppy Seed Cold Process Soap Recipe

Since Stearic Acid is useful for homemade soap from scratch, we decided to include it in our own soap recipe. So, we created the lovely Peppered Poppy Seed Cold Process Soap Recipe with this ingredient as well as many other great ones. We included real Poppy Seed to go along with the scent, the gorgeous color, and beautiful flower shape. Plus, we included some luscious oils and butters that are wonderful for the skin. So, we needed to add in some support for our bars to make sure that they retained the pretty shape and lasted a long time. You are sure to love everything about this bar from the appearance to the skin loving ingredients.

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Creating Embed SoapsWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Creating Embed Soaps

Also, stearic acid can be very useful for creating effective embed soaps. Similarly to wax embeds for candles, you are going to want to make sure that your embed holds its shape and doesn’t melt as you work. So, you are going to want to make sure that your embed is hard enough to withstand the melted soap you need to add. Also, you need to be able to move the embeds into the loaf mold without breaking. Thus, adding some of this ingredient to your soap embeds will make the process easier and more fun!

What is Stearic Acid Used For: Improving Homemade CleansersWhat is Stearic Acid Used For: Improving Homemade Cleansers

Another marvelous benefit of using Stearic Acid in your bath and body products is that this cosmetic ingredient will enhance the cleansing power of your recipes. This added ingredient will help break the surface tension and get the water barrier out of the way. Since water molecules will attract one another, it can be difficult to get beneath the water to clean away the grime on your skin. So, you are going to need to break the surface tension to get your soap to really work and get to the dirt and oils that may be trapped. If you are curious about the effects of surface tension on your cleansing products, then check out this simple explanation of the concept at Surface Tension and Water by The USGS Water Science School.
