Solid Lotion Bar Formula

Solid Lotion Bars

The luxurious butters add special attention to winter dry & itchy skin!

Ingredients

• 14 grams beeswax (15 %)
• 24 grams avocado oil (26 %)
• 12 grams fractionated coconut oil (14 %)
• 21 grams shea butter (23%)
• 23 grams cocoa butter (21%)
• 1 gram vitamin E oil (0.10%)
• 0.9 gram scent (1 %)

Equipment

• Double boiler
• Scale
• Stir stick
• Push up deodorant type containers

Formulating

1. Melt all but the Vit E and scent in a double boiler on low, medium heat until melted.  Do not overheat as it will degrade the ingredients. Remove from the heat.

2. Add vitamin E oil, and scent stir and pour into containers.

3. Put into the fridge for 1 hour or more to avoid shea butter crystallization. (grainy)

NOTE:  If you find the final product is too hard, add more soft oil, it it is too soft decrease the soft oils.  Your climate contributes to how stiff the formula is.

This formula can be altered to accommodate a more simple perfume bar by changing around the butters for something like solid coconut oil.  We all learn by trying.  The % enable you to shrink down the formula to sample sizes for your R&D.

Yields approx 6 x 15 gram containers. You can also pour into small molds to avoid packaging.  

If you do not have the above carrier oils or butters, here are alternatives.  sweet almond, grapeseed, camellia, grapeseed, meadowfoam, hemp, camellia or olive.
