Body Lotion Instructions

Our lotion base is of the finest quality and make great products that you can market on their own or to supplement your other products.  They go well with body oils, bath salts, shower gels, soaps, etc.  Also, by adding just a little shea butter, jojoba, or vitamin E, you can markup up your products significantly for higher quality while spending just pennies more.  You may also want to consider adding a small amount of SOS SilkBase to make the products silkier.  The lotion is already made, so finishing the product is extremely simple.  

Items needed to custom blend your own luxury body lotion:

* Don't forget to purchase some spout caps for the larger bottles to work with or if you purchased a gallon jug, to have a lotion pump to work with as it will make it easier. Use the following table as a guideline for adding fragrance:

QUICK & EASY

Step 1:  Add fragrance oil to your lotion base.

Step 2:  Add cap and shake shake shake (or if you can find a thin object like a chopstick, you may be able to stir it into the bottle).  The lotion is very thick and sometimes difficult to work with, so you may find the following more to your liking.

THOROUGH METHOD

Step 1:   Slowly heat a medium to large sized pot of water for double boiling (if you have a double boiler-than use that).

Step 2:  Fill the bottle(s) with lotion .

Step 3:  Put the bottle(s) in the pot and watch very closely (this will thin the lotion and make it more manageable). Do not over boil, as the lotion tends to bubble over. WATCH THE LOTION CAREFULLY

Step 4:  When the lotion is thin, remove from water.

Step 5:  Add your fragrance oil, and a couple drops of water based colorant as desired. 

Step 6:  Put the cap on, and gently shake to mix evenly.

Step 7:  If you are pouring into smaller containers, now is a good time, otherwise, let cool in this bottle and the lotion will thicken. We sell HDPE plastic bottles and spout caps and PET plastic bullet bottles with caps for smaller sizes.

For larger batches (1 gallon) put filled gallon jug in a pot of water and follow the instructions above.  Be sure to have a lotion pump as it may make it easier to work with.

NOTE:

·        You can also heat up larger batches in the microwave. However, you will need to watch this product very closely, as it will overflow.
·        Fragrance usage rates: 2-4 oz per gallon (depending on preference). Adjust for Ultra Concentrate or Extreme Concentrate.
·        FD&C colorant: add by drops.
