  • Stearic Acid
  • Optiphen
  • Macadamia Nut Oil
  • Vitamin E Oil

Other Ingredients & Equipment You'll Need: Distilled Water, Mixing Bowl, Stainless Steel Spoon, Stovetop, Pots (2), Stick Blender, Spatula, Scale.


  1. Weigh out at least 850 grams of distilled water. While you will not need quite this much, some will evaporate. It is better to have too much than not enough. Place the water into a pot and place the pot on the stove top. Heat your water to at least 180F. You want to keep the water at this temperature for 20 minutes. The heat will destroy any bacteria that is in the water. Now, remove the water from the heat source. Then, weigh out 706 grams of distilled water.
  2. Next, in a small pot, weigh out all of the following ingredients: Stearic Acid, Silky Emulsifying Wax, Sweet Almond Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, and Shea Butter. In a second larger pot, add a few inches of tap water. Now, place the larger (water) pot on the stove top over medium heat. Place your smaller pot into the larger pot to create a double boiler. Melt and heat your cream ingredients to 140F, stirring occasionally as they are melting.
  3. Once both your water and oils are at about 140F, place them both into a deep mixing bowl. Use your stick blender to blend mix them together. As you are mixing, you will notice the mixture will turn white. This means your lotion is starting to emulsify.
  4. Now, allow your mixture to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature of the cream has cooled to this temperature, add the Optiphen, Vitamin E Oil, Red Da Bomb Soap Dye, and PInk Beaches Fragrance Oil. Again, use your stick blender to mix your ingredients together. As your lotion cools, it will thicken. You will want to stick blend periodically as the cream is cooling. Finally, once the lotion reaches room temperature, place it in your jars and place lids on top.

Your shea butter lotion is now ready to use!
