Thanks to the wonderful input from our customers we revised this lotion base to make it easier to customize. In our tests, it's easier than ever to mix any fragrance or essential oil in with no issues of separation. Formula revised Nov. 2014.

Beeswax Lotion Base - We have revamped our recipe to make it richer and thicker! Using Avocado, Coconut and Sweet Almond Oil, this lotion is filled with skin loving oils rich in vitamins. BTMS-50 and Beeswax combine to emulsify this lotion into a luxurious cream. Preserved with Optiphen, a paraben and formaldehyde-free preservative which is still effective for temperatures below 176°F, which means you can safely warm up your lotion to more easily add in fragrance and transfer to smaller bottles. 

Our Beeswax lotion base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch!

This product is sold by volume.

To use this lotion base - Warm the lotion base to 130°F in a fully disinfected container (5% bleach water or rubbing alcohol will disinfect your mixing containers). The lotion base will become the consistency of a melted milkshake. Add your fragrance at the recommended usage rate (typically .1 ounces of fragrance per 16 ounces of lotion) and stir until fully incorporated. Pour carefully into your containers. Let the lotion sit until it is room temperature prior to putting the cap on. The preservative system in this lotion starts to degrade at 176°F. Please ensure your lotion gets no warmer than 130°F during the heating phase.

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

Very nice lotion
I just got this last week. I make my own body butters but making my own lotions from scratch isn't something I want attempt yet. However I desperately wanted something not quite so heavy as my body butter. I purchased both this and the aloe lotion base and I'm so in love with both. Not greasy, my skin feels great afterwards, and paired with sandalwood essential oils it makes for the BEST smelling lotion, IMO. Thank you SO much!

New Base
I am also not happy with this new formula. I loved the old one, it was perfect. Now the oils separate, and it's greasy. I'm very concerned that my customer will not like it as well as the old formula.

Hi Debbie! I'm sorry this new formula wasn't your favorite. We found this formula is great for incorporating fragrances. I'll be emailing you personally to resolve this issue!

Not Happy
I am very unhappy with the new beeswax lotion base. When you first put it on it feels sticky or greasy, you can't touch anything for a minute or so. What should I be telling my customers "you won't like it when you first put it on but wait a few minutes and it will be okay" That doesn't work if you are selling at shows and they are trying your samples! They aren't going to wait around while it soaks in. It needs to feel good right when they apply it, JUST LIKE THE OLD FORMULA DID! Why did you change it? The old formula was working great, why mess with it? If you wanted to do something different, why didn't you just add a another lotion and call it something else? Can't you bring back the old formula? The only reason I gave this two stars was because it does feel good once it soaks in. I am going to be looking someplace else for a new lotion base. Sorry, I really like your company.

Hi Cathy! Thanks for taking the time to leave a review. I'm sorry to hear that you do not love the feel of this lotion base when first applied. You may enjoy the Aloe Lotion Base, or the Shea Body Butter if you are open to a lotion with a thicker consistency. I will be emailing you personally to help resolve this issue.

Big Seller - Customers LOVE IT!!
I love it, customers love it. Only complaint is, I wish you still carried it in the larger quantities - our store goes through several gallons a month. We purchased the 5 gallon bucket when it was available and it was wonderful. Just a bit more profit in our pocket! Keep making this wonderful base, it works as long as you follow directions.

New formula is greasy and separates
Since this lotion has been reformulated it is really hit and miss. I follow the instructions to the letter but sometimes a gallon works out great and sometimes, like with this last gallon I was working with today, it does not work out at all. This last gallon produced a lotion that was clumpy, greasy, and with large pools of oil that separated out of the lotion, and would not re-incorporate back into the lotion. I cant use this last gallon at all, and the problem is that the formula is inconsistent which means I cant sell it. Months ago I was going to take this out of my line entirely but I wanted to give it one more go as my customers used to love this lotion. But today I have 300 wedding favors to do and the gallon I ordered is simply not formulated the same and after heating, the lotion is an unusable greasy clump. I have actually lost customers who used to come to my shop because of this lotion. I'm removing it from my line and removing this chronic headache from from my work life.
