lotion base

Hi. How can I use lotion base in soap?

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
We have never tried using the lotion base in soap so I'm not sure how well that would turn out, if at all. There would be no way to know the exact amount of oils to calculate your lye and there are additives in the lotion not normally used in soap. Our Aloe Lotion Base is meant to be used as a lotion. It sounds like you may prefer using our Melt & Pour Soap Bases.

I added some additives to the base after heating it up and blended with my stick blender, poured into plastic bottles, left uncapped for some hours but when I came back I met it separated cream ontop and water below. What do you think must have caused that separation?

Tina from Bramble Berry replies...
All of our lotion bases, including the Aloe Base, have been formulated to accept up to about 5% of additional ingredients by weight. Though if you go above 5% with your additives, which does include your fragrance oil, those extras can start to separate out. You will also want to make sure the additives are blended in well to prevent separation. The easiest way to do this is first heat your lotion base up to about 110-130°F until it begins to liquefy (almost like a melted mixture). Then add your calculated amount of 'extras' and stick blend until smooth. Finally, pour into bottles and let sit, uncapped, for 24 hours.

Nice But Order Plenty

I ordered the 120 oz size and got 6 oz less than planned (I was filling 60 2-oz bottles and could only fill 47). The lotion is lovely and really feels good so I'll probably repurchase.

Absolutely in love with this one!

Like one of the other ladies mentioned, with this product you will never pull out the double boiler to make your own lotion from scratch again 😉. I really want to stock up on this, but I have yet to see what the shelf life of this product is! So items are sitting in my cart ready to order. But I'm not placing it until I get this answer. Also, the 5% oil that can be added... How do I add Shea, or cacoa, or rosehip seed oil and my essential oils?
