HOW TO MAKE A LOTION OUT OF A OIL
Most all lotions, are oils that are whipped, in a blender,,
Take your Base Oil, Almond, Jojoba, grapeseed, Babusa, palm, ect.
add your carrot oil, for facials, or shea for body and face, vit e, collagen, ect, and put in blender till it is your desired thickness.
Vit E is a natural preservative. But still treat as fresh
Enjoy

Yes, good to hear there are others innovating and creating their own products. I also love making my own skin care lotions and potions. Just last night I made up my own Salicylic Acne Treatment.

1000% Cheaper when you DIY!

Just a quick note to those making their own products to be used in the salon....I just recently found out that insurance does NOT cover issues that may arise from products manufactured "in-house". I was manufacturing my own products (have been for over 20 years now - and yes, I have done extensive research on every product I made) and carried separate insurance on that part of my business. But due to the fact that I manufactured it, even though I had other insurance, the salon professional liability would NOT cover if someone had a reaction or tried to sue over something related to the "in-house" made products.

Sooooo, check your insurance policies to be sure you are covered...even if you are only using simple scrubs and/or masks made by you in your services. Some policies may cover it but the big companies (State Farm, All State and Nationwide) would NOT cover this.

Anyway, just wanted to put that out there cuz I wouldn't want to see any of ya'll in hot water over it.

As a cosmetologist with a background in cosmetic chemistry ... you need to consider preservatives whenever water might be introduced into a product whether on purpose by accident ...it's not as easy as you might think. And ...lotions ARE not simply whipped oils or butters - they are carefully balanced complex blends of oils/butter, nutrients, perhaps a protein and or botanicals - a water phase - which might simply be water or aloe ...or a botanical concoction - and very importantly, a preservative!

The above poster is also correct about insurance issues ...so beware!

That being said ...it can be fun to make your own soaks or scrubs and even massage oil ...but if there is a chance of water being introduced into the product - you need a cosmetically safe preservative! Vit. E is only an antioxidant, not a true preservative - it will NOT protect against mold - or 'bugs' as we call them ...it only inhibits rancidity of oils. That is the biggest danger ...mold or buggies are quick to grow in any medium where water in a portion of the formula (which means any water containing ingredient) - and that could be as much as just a drop of water that slpashed into the container next to your pedi-spa ...
Hope that gives a little clarification ...or confusion as the case may be!Undecided

the best things in life, aren't things ...

Add 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon citric acid and 1/2 teaspoon potassium sorbate if you have it. Once dissolved add 1 teaspoon green tea, juniper berries, rose hips, red clover blossoms, arrowroot, sandalwood. After everything has simmered for 10 minutes on medium, reduce heat to low and continue simmering for another 30 minutes.
