New Formula! We've made slight changes to our Aloe Lotion base to improve the stability, but it it still has the same great feel.

Aloe Lotion Base:  This lotion base has a luxurious feel with a thin consistency that absorbs quickly into the skin.  Some of the key ingredient that we've included in this lotion base are aloe vera, oat extract, buckthorn extract, and panthenol. These skin nourishing additives were included in our formulation to help the lotion penetrate deep into dry damaged skin and leave you with soft rehydrated skin.

This product is sold by volume.

Our aloe lotion base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch! 1 gallon is about 124 ounces by weight. To add fragrance just add in the appropriate amount using the Fragrance Calculator – no heat necessary! Be sure to use a fully disinfected container (5% bleach water or rubbing alcohol will disinfect your mixing containers).

Our Heavy Duty Lotion pumps fit the gallon containers perfectly! Purchase one here. Easy to follow instructions for working with our lotion base are here.

only got 15.75 oz shorted on product
I order the Aloe 16 oz base of lotion and even with the container weight included its weight was 15.75 oz? I was expecting with container for it to be OVER 16 oz which would account for container weight? Very unhappy with being shorted product? BB just dropped on my list of trusted suppliers! If profit margin is that tight, that they short customer product, it makes you wonder about other products they might short you on?? The label did NOT even have weight on it??? But my order says 16 oz??? You have to take into account the container weight and lid, I figure I was shorted at least an ounce? paid for 16 oz and got 15 oz?

Excellent product but can I make it thicker?
I love using the aloe lotion base as aftershave but I'd like to make it a little thicker. Can I add a little Shea Body Butter or Beeswax Lotion Base to thicken it?

It absorbs very quickly into the skin leaving a very light slippery smoothness to it. I make my lotions from scratch, never used a base before but wanted to try them out to see if I could save myself some time. All in all, its a pleasant lotion, very light and absorbs quickly. It leaves my hands smooth but not greasy, with a little bit of slip to them giving them the extra moisturizer they need.

Amazing Product!
I used to use a goat milk lotion base that my customers loved, but when this lovely base came out I wanted to try it and I'm so glad I did. It's so light, yet incredibly moisturizing. I was sure my customers woud love it to and they do! It is a best seller already! One question I have is, are you able to verify if the glycerin included in the base is plant derived? Thanks BB for all your wonderful products!

Very nice lotion base
I bought this lotion base and added sandalwood and lavender & herb fragrance which came out very nice. It absorbs nicely, too. In reading another review about adding borage seed oil to address dry skin, is there a reason you don't carry borage oil at Bramble Berry? It appears the GLA it adds to moisturizers would be a good item for addressing dry skin. What percentage is recommended to be added to this aloe lotion base to address dry skin? Thanks!

Hi Patricia! I'm so glad you think our Aloe Lotion Base is very nice! We love it too! Thanks so much for your suggestion of carrying borage oil! I will bring it up to our development team. Mallow Extract is also great for soothing dry skin! All of our lotion bases are formulated to accept up to about 5% of additional oils, extracts, or fragrances by weight because of an emulsifier surplus. Because we don't carry borage oil I'm not super familiar with its specific safe usage rates. I will email you personally to discuss this further.
