Mango Body Cream


Mango Body Cream is a light formula that leaves the skin feeling cool and refreshed. I really enjoy this cream during the summer after a dip in the pool.

This was made on the blog on January 18th, 2010.


          0.3 grams Citric Acid
          1.3 grams Liquid Glycerin
          1.3 grams Stearic Acid
          15 grams Mango Butter
          4.4 grams Emulsifying Wax
          103 grams Distilled Water

          1 gram Mango Sorbet Fragrance Oil
          0.7 grams Germaben II



Weigh all ingredients first. Combine all ingredients, except the Germaben II and fragrance oil. Heat the oils and water in a microwave -safe container for approximately 1-1 1/2 minutes on high, or until all ingredients are completely melted.

Mix with an immersion blender (aka stick blender). Mix until mixture no longer separates (oil should no longer float to the surface). When completely emulsified add Germaben II and fragrance oil. Mix well. Pour into a 4 ounce frosted dome cosmetic jar. I like to use the sealing disks for the cosmetic jars, it makes it so easy to gently shake the container as it cools so no separation occurs.
