Emergency Lotion for Dry Skin Day 2

Yesterday I made the Emergency Lotion for Dry Skin. I really liked it, but it took some work to rub into the skin. Perfect for when you want a massage, but I also wanted a lotion that was similar but more fluid, without the required time to rub it into the skin. Well, I think I have it! Come join me for a quick lotion in the kitchen.

For this variation of the Emergency Lotion formulation, I decided to reduce the percentage of Stearic Acid so it wouldn’t be so stiff and waxy. I reduced the Stearic Acid from 5% to 2%. The remaining 3% I added to the water.

I also changed one of my oils. Instead of using Argan Oil, I used Black Currant Oil. Black Currant Oil is a new product in our catalog. This oil is light in feel but also high in gamma-linolenic acids. These fatty acids are important for helping the skin renew itself. Perfect for when we are trying to combat dry skin. Wahoo!

NOTES

The finished lotion was more fluid and didn’t require much time to rub it into the skin. The skin felt fresh and soft, almost like I had climbed from the shower. It is the perfect apply-and-go type of lotion. I am very happy with these results. Try this lotion for simple hydration in this summer heat!
