An Aftershave Lotion and An After Shower Body Lotion with Ingredients from the Cupboards of Neal and Dani
I only have a few more recipes to share and I think I’ll have tackled all of the requests I received from readers responding to the Quick Gifts from Your Cupboard blog post. I am excited to announce that we will continue the “From Your Cupboard” series each month. We will put out a blog post each month and then come up with formulas for anyone who asks! Now on to the formulas for the day!
Neal e-mailed in asking for help formulating an aftershave lotion for men. After he answered a few questions for me, I was able to create this light lotion for him. He had requested that I include Sea Buckthorn Oil due to many good things he had heard about the oil from friends, including stories about the Russian Cosmonaut program using it to help treat radiation burns. I think you will enjoy this formula!
14% Jojoba, Golden or Colorless
7% Veggie Emulsifier
5% Macadamia Nut Oil
5% Cyclomethicone (Gives the lotion a conditioning feel and smooth glide during application.)
3% Liquid Glycerin (Can be replaced with longer lasting humectants like Sodium Lactate or Hydrovance
1% Seabuckthorn Fruit Oil
0.5% Liquid Germall Plus
Dani asked for a simple lotion that could be used as a daily after shower lotion. This lotion will be a fantastic way to pamper oneself after each shower!
I only have three more posts for this week and then we will move to some really fun projects next week!
