  1. Hey all! I've been obsessively looking for some squeeze tubes for lotions and I can't find any of them anywhere! It's so frustrating! If I find them they're too small or the wrong color. I was wondering where I could find tubes like these? http://www.lotioncrafter.com/dispensing-tube-15ml.html and http://www.tubesnstuff.com/tubes.htm I need them to be in white and 4 ounces.
  2. I need help with my lotion recipe. I've reformulated and reformulated and it comes out great initially but separates after approx 1 week. Here is my recipe: 7% e-wax 3% stearic acid 15% butters 10% oil 60% aloe vera juice 2% glycerin 1% optiphen 1% fragrance oil (Percentages may be slightly off, I just rounded but they are approx). I heat the oils/butters and liquids and combine while hot (approx 135f), blend with immersion blender until creamy. Wait till approx 85 degrees f to add optiphen and FO (I thought that may be the cause of separation in prior recipes because when added between 90-120 degrees f as recommended the emulsion would separate as soon as it hit 80-85 degrees). This time it did not separate and stayed a beautiful, creamy texture for approx 1 week and then separated into a curdled oily mess. Any advice on what's causing this? I'm at a total loss now, I think the proportions are ok and the temps should be ok as well. =( Help!
  3. Any favorite suppliers for shea butter . Ive purchased refined from BB - nice but just ok. Once i bought a small 1lb jar to test from Mountain Rose herbs ( unrefined certified organic) I was so surprised - it stunk to high heaven and was grainy - real grainy + EXPENSIVE ! What about kokum has anyone used that one - sounds interesting but pricey I love it in body butter + lotion bars
  4. Good morning all SO i was on the Lebermuth site looking at EO, lavender in particular, for soap - lotion - sprays etc. The prices are all over the board as they are with all companies. Have any of you used Lavandin -super or Grosso before ? If so what are your thoughts ? The lavandin varieties are in the mid ish $30 grande pp the bulgarian $72 + Lavender oil was $150 pp YIKES ! Also they had orange 15 decolorized very reasonable low $20 range but since citrus looses its potency not sure if i need a pound any soapers have any luck with getting orange 15 to stick ? Another note - I was told by customer service that their Lavender 40/42 is synthetic not a blend - i thought it was weird that it was in the EO section thank you in advance
  5. Does anyone have any experience with any "natural" emulsifiers in lotions/body butters? I'm trying to move to a more natural line. Currently I use between 9.2%-9.5% e-wax in my recipes, but have no idea what the equivalent is when using another emulsifier. I thought about using beeswax as an emulsifier, then I stumbled onto an article that states it's not an emulsifier. Some of these I've read as being thickeners, but this is what one website said were "natural" emulsifiers: Beeswax Candelilla Carnauba Cetearyl alcohol Cetearyl wheat bran glycosides Cetearyl wheat straw glycosides Decyl glucoside Jojoba Lecithin Quince seed Rice bran wax Sucrose cocoate Vegetable glycerin Xanthan gum
