Some Issues

I love the thickness of this base, and would have totally used it in a massage cream type product. However when I mixed in a small amount of essential oil and let it sit, it seperated immediately....Im gonna try either a different base, or just starting from scratch.

Very moisturizing

I bought this in the 4oz size to make my own lotion. I wash my hands constantly and I applied it at noon today. It kept my hands soft and quenched all day. Usually with store bought lotion, I jave to reapply 2-3 times a day. Not with this one. In the future I will be buying the 16 oz.

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.

Separation

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.
