Lotion/Cream Ingredients

The hand and body lotions and soothing creams are primarily made from the following:

  • Cold-pressed aloe vera juice
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Shea Butter12694999_10201224647975045_1234085071752371184_o

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.
