Details

This silky, smooth lotion with Silc-Oliv and Olive Squalane is a luxury version of the basic Ultra Thin Spray-able Lotion formula.  The inclusion of Silc-Oliv and Olive Squalane give it a lovely feel on the skin, and it still soaks straight in. This is delicious sprayed onto your skin after being in the sun, and also in wintry windy weather.

As this is a cold processed formulation, do not use spring water, though you can substitute a hydrosol or floral water.

Ingredients:

Equipment

All your usual lotion making equipment
Stick blender - with low speed
Coffee Frother - I use this for the Xanthan Gum
Mini Mixer or Coffee Frother (as this batch is only 200g, for larger batches you can also use a stick blender)
1 x 250ml and 1 x 1 Litre Pyrex or similar Jugs
Scales
Measures, spatulas, paper towels etc

Method

NOTE:  It is important to follow the processing directions as given below to achieve a successful, stable product.

Step One

  • Measure Distilled Water into mixing jug and add the Liquid Germall Plus, stir to combine well
  • Have the Xanthan Gum on a small measure spoon
  • Place the mini mixer into the water mixture and begin stirring, this creates a vortex in the centre of the jug – this is important!
  • Whilst you have the mixer going, and the vortex in the centre, slowly pour in the Xanthan Gum – this way you avoid the lumps
  • Mix intermittently for up to 20 minutes to ensure it is fully hydrated
  • After this time add the first portion of Durosoft®PK-SG and mix well

Step Two

  • In a separate jug combine the second portion of Durosoft®PK-SG and the Camellia Oil, Olive Squalane and Silc-Oliv

Step Three

  • Place the mixer into the water phase jug and turn it on, then pour the oil mixture into the jug, and then increase the speed, mixing frequently for up to 30 minutes (If using a stick blender you’ll need to use quick blasts, not continual stirring
  • Bottle into spray/spritz bottles once set up
