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 so be safe and bleach water all your utensils.
  1. In a heat safe container, combine the avocado oil, green tea seed oil, BTMS-50, emulsifying wax, sodium lactate, glycerin and vitamin E oil. Heat the container in the microwave using 1 minute bursts until the waxes have fully melted. Set aside.
  2. In a separate container, add the aloe vera liquid and heat to 150°F. Add the DL-panthenol to the liquid and stir to dissolve.
  3. Check the temperatures of both containers. Each container should be between 150 – 160°F. Once they are at the correct temperatures, pour the oils into the water and stir continually. Blend the mixture for 60 – 90 seconds, making sure the oil and water phases are fully emulsified. Be careful to “burp” your stick blender by tamping it on the bottom of the container to release bubbles — you don’t want bubbles trapped in your lotion! Continue to blend until the lotion drops below 120°F.
  4. Once the lotion is below 120°F, add the aloe extract and optiphen. Using the stick blender, mix for an additional 60-90 seconds until the mixture is fully incorporated.
  5. Add the Fuchsia Labcolor and stick blend to thoroughly combine.
  6. Add the Crisp Apple Rose Fragrance Oil and stick blend to combine.
  7. When the lotion drops below 110°F, pour it into bottles. Let the bottles sit overnight without a cap (otherwise condensation can form inside the bottle).
