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.

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.

I purchase this base to try as a light weight face lotion. It is a nice base but certainly needs a little added moisture. I see below its been stated to add oatmeal, but what about a light carrier oil or butter? Other than that its GREAT !

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Chloe! I'm so glad you think our Aloe Lotion base is great! This base has extra Btms-50 Conditioning Emulsifier making it possible to mix in your fragrance oil along with additional oils/butters or extracts. If you're wanting to add extra oils/butters you can do so at an addition 5% including your fragrance oil in that amount. The easiest way to add oils is to bring a measured amount of your lotion base up to about 110-130°F until it begins to liquefy. Then add the calculated amount of your desired liquid and stick blend until smooth. Finally pour into bottles and let sit, uncapped, for 24 hours. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Aloe Lotion Base
Great lotion! I really like the consistency and it absorbs quickly. Is possible to add other oils such as almond or avocado? If so, what is the recommended procedure/ratio. Could I add colloidal oatmeal? Thanks so much....I love your website and your products!

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...
Hi Catherine! I'm so glad you love our Aloe Lotion Base. We don't recommend any extra oils/butters to this lotion base as its sold ready to use. Once you add additional ingredients you affect the preservative and the overall properties of the lotion. Extracts added under 1% should be okay however. You can also add the Colloidal Oatmeal! Start at no more than 1% to your batch. I will email you personally to discuss this further.

Last night, I finally got around to thinking about scenting my jar of lotion that I bought . I had been using it on my hands unscented but I really missed having a nice fragrance. After consulting my list of fragrances, I decided on Amazon Lily and Rain and mixed it with Vetyver. I was going strictly on the fragrances notes from both, so I took the risk. For a 4 oz jar, I started with 2 oz. of the AL&R and added 1.5 ml of Vetyver, then mixed well. Not quite there yet. I added another 1/2 ml of the Vetyver and continued mixing. Still need something so I decided to add a few more drops of Vetyver. All of a sudden my nose gave my brain the nudge it need and this was now to perfect blend. I LOVE this combo of fragrance oils, feminine without being too floral but definitely a lovely woman's scent! My final addition was a little less than 1/2 tsp of rice brain oil that has been sitting on my shelf since August being infused with alkanet root powder. Lotion is a lovely rose pink! Thanks!
