Crazy Tropical Body Lotion

I’m not normally a fan of coconut flavors or scents, I leave that appreciation to Taylor and her fondness of coconut. That being said, I found myself recently dreaming of a body lotion made with Virgin Coconut Oil and lightly scented with the complimentary Banana Leaf & Acai Fragrance. I couldn’t stop thinking about this body lotion, so I sat down with the MMS catalog and allowed my dreams to help create this formula.

I chose Macadamia Nut Oil to add to this lotion because I can’t help but pair bananas and macadamias ever since my trip to Hawaii and eating the Macadamia Pancakes at Boots & Kimo’s in Kailua.

I used Hydrovance as my humectant because I think summer lotions should keep skin well moisturized without being sticky. Since I like Hydrovance, I used it in my formula for fantabulous skin.

As my oils don’t have a high content of stearines, I added a little Stearic Acid to the formula to help give the lotion some body without making it too thick.
