INCI: Sodium Lactate
Sodium lactate is a natural humectant, moisturizer and pH regulator. For lotions replace the liquid glycerin with sodium lactate, in soaps use up to 1/2 ounce per lb of fats to harden the bar. Produced from renewable resources and completely biodegradable makes sodium lactate a better choice when moisturization is desired. Studies have shown sodium lactate to be a better short term and long term moisturizer than glycerin, our long loved friend. Try the tests for yourself. Make your favorite lotion twice, once with glycerin and once with sodium lactate. Apply the lotion to your leg or arm twice daily for 2 weeks. We are sure you will notice the difference. Sodium lactate is less sticky when compared to liquid glycerin so if you are trying to formulate to make a less sticky lotion use sodium lactate instead of glycerin. Sodium lactate 60% USP.

Extra Exfoliation Power!
Seed, Apricot Seed - Ground
I love making scrubs and polishes as well as soaps with these little scrubby bits. The Ground Apricot Seeds provide a cute speckled look while adding an extra dimension of exfoliation power.

Coconut Oil, Virgin
This lovely oil doesnít keep itís aroma in soap, but it makes decadent lip balms, lotions and lotion bars.
