Honey

I am having a brain freeze here. I am adding a product to my line with honey in my lotion bars. I can't for the life of me remember what properties the honey would add to these bars.

Can anyone help me on this or how you would describe what the honey adds to them?

I usually use .5-1% in all my emulsified butter & lotion recipes.

Make sure you use it in your water phase, heat it up with your water. Glad to have helped you!! :highfive:

Sorry for so many questions I do have a couple more. I was wondering if I could add it now to my cream soap or does it have to be added to the water phase? What do you think of this description that I used on my site? I believe my containers are about 1/4 ounce do you think $3.00 is reasonable?

Our lotions bars are chock full of moisturizing, nourishing butters and honey. Honey is considered anti-bacterial and also a humectant. Humectant's draw moisture from the air to the skin helping it retain moisture. To learn more about the wonderful properties of honey please visit our butter descriptions section.

I was wondering too how you added honey to your lotion bars without it seperating? And if you add honey then don't you need a preservative? I've added honey to lotions before, but they are emulsified and have a preservative. I've also done this with scrubs that also use a preservative.

In my experience in doing this, if you continue stirring enough until it thickens a bit to keep the majority of the honey from separating, you'll have some of the honey qualities in your product. But you really have to stir the dickens out of it. What doesn't incorporate into the mix, I throw away (it's usually at the bottom). IMO, Beeswax does emulsify... but to an extent. Yes, you definitely do need to add perservative because of the honey. :)
