The hand and body lotions and soothing creams are primarily made from the following:
- Cold-pressed aloe vera juice
- Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- Shea Butter
To this, we add emulsifying wax and stearic acid, which is how the oil and liquid become cohesive.
We incorporate a small amount of preservative (without which the lotions would go rancid with a couple of weeks or so).
Finally we add the fragrance or essential oils to the batch. I use only low-impact fragrances, since I am sensitive to most artificial scents.
