Description 

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.

Ingredients: Water, Sweet Almond Oil (Prunus amygdalus dulcis), Avocado Oil (Persea Gratissima), Castor Oil (Ricinus Communis), Coconut Oil (Cocos Nucifera), Beeswax (Cera alba), Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, Butylene Glycol, Stearic Acid, Phenoxyethanol,Caprylyl Glycol

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.
