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.

Terah from Bramble Berry replies...Hi Brandon! I'm so glad you love our Aloe Lotion Base! All of our Bramble Berry lotion bases have been formulated to accept up to about 5% of additional oils, extracts, or fragrances by weight, including small amounts of silicones like Cyclomethicone. The easiest way to add in oils is to bring a measured amount of your lotion base up to about 110-130°F until it begins to liquefy (almost like a melted mixture). Add the calculated amount of "extras" then stick blend until smooth. Finally, pour into bottles and let sit, uncapped, for 24 hours. I'm not sure how much this base will be able to be thickened but if you want to give it a try I would start with a hard butter, like Cocoa Butter.
"Thank you for your prompt response. Bramble Berry has the best customer service of any company I know of. Pass the word!" -Rene
