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 176F, which means you can safely warm up your lotion to more easily add in fragrance and transfer to smaller bottles. Formula revised Nov. 2013.
Our Beeswax lotion base is unscented, uncolored, and waiting for your personal, customizing touch! 1 gallon is about 124 ounces by weight.
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 degrees. 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.
