Description

This recipe combines skin-loving ingredients like oat oiloat extract, and colloidal oatmeal. Colloidal oatmeal is a micro-fine ground powder that blends in smoothly without any grit or exfoliation. It’s well known for its calming properties, and it’s commonly added straight to bath water to soothe the skin.

Give your lotion a polished look with Oat & Cashmere Lotion labels. They pair perfectly with the Soothing Oat Bath Salts labels. Both make a great gift or addition to your product line.

Oat & Cashmere Lotion Project
Cashmere Fragrance Oil is a complex blend of white freesia, magnolia, blueberry, and violet. The moment we smelled it, we knew it would be perfect for this recipe.

Ingredients

Five to six 4 oz. Bottles

18.5 oz. Distilled Water (77%)

0.2 oz. Colloidal Oatmeal (1%)

1.3 oz. Polawax Emulsifying Wax (5%)

0.7 oz. BTMS-50 Conditioning Emulsifier (3%)

1.7 oz. Oat Oil (7%)

0.5 oz. Avocado Oil (2%)

0.7 oz. Oat Extract (3%)

0.2 oz. Cashmere Fragrance Oil (1%)

0.2 oz. Optiphen (1%)

Instructions

EQUIPMENT PREP: Disinfect your utensils by dipping them in a 5% bleach water solution and allowing to dry. This includes mixing containers, your stick blender, and any spoons or spatulas that may come in contact with your lotion. Your products must be as free of germs, bacteria, and microbes as possible. To be safe, bleach water all your utensils.

1

In a heat-safe container, add 18.5 ounces of distilled water. Heat in the microwave on 1 minute bursts until the water is about 160°F. Add 0.2 ounces of colloidal oatmeal to the water and use your stick blender to mix it in and break up any clumps.

In a separate heat-safe container, combine 1.7 ounces of oat oil, 0.5 ounces of avocado oil, 0.7 oz. oat extract, 1.3 ounces of Polawax Emulsifying Wax, and 0.7 ounces of BTMS-50. Heat the mixture in the microwave on 30-60 second bursts until the waxes are fully melted.

Check the temperature of both containers. Each one should be about 160°F (the oil mixture may be a little bit hotter). When they’re ready, tap your stick blender on the bottom of the bowl to release bubbles. Pour the oils and wax into the water and begin pulsing the stick blender. Blend the mixture for 60-90 seconds, making sure the oil and water phases are fully emulsified.

Continue stick blending until the temperature drops to about 130-140°F. Add 0.2 ounces of Cashmere Fragrance Oil and 0.2 ounces of Optiphen. Stick blend for another 60-90 seconds to fully combine.

Carefully pour the lotion into the containers – we used a funnel to help. Let the bottles sit overnight without a cap to prevent condensation. Once completely cooled, place the caps on the bottles, apply labels, and enjoy.
