nice base to add oils to
I was making my own lotion but couldn't seem to overcome the dry itchy skin. Ordered the base and now I just add oils to it along with a shea butter mix. Works really well and keeps the skin moisturized.
The sticker on the jug for the base says to go to naturesoil.com for recipes but I have not been able to find the link on the website. If I go to blogs it links with this website. I really would like to find the link for recipes since I also bought the conditioner base and need ideas for recipes. Would appreciate your input. Thank you
Added my favorite oils and love how it feels and I know longer wear ant toxic perfumes, I would highly recommend and will buy again---LOVE IT---
Great for diy lotion
Made my lotion creamy and helped reduce the amount of grease from the oils.
Light and silky
Great product and is great unscented or mixes well with essential oils.
Idea to thicken this product
Try the Butter Cream they have, it's thicker. Maybe you can mix the 2 instead of adding regular lotion for thickness.
No thickening required
I read all these fabulous reviews and given BA's comment "no thickening required" my expectation was a moderately thick lotion. Runny and flows as freely as milk. Very, very disapointed. Is there a way to thicken this? I have a gallon of milky, runny stuff.
I mix this lotion with a bottle of the premium lotion & some melted shea oil; this makes it thicker; I have ordered this a couple times & love the way it comes together for gifts at Christmas
Ok for a Natural base
Not my cup of tea but that is also why I’m not making my own natural base. Since a chemical preservative is required I figured I’d use a good base which performs the way people want. There is nothing wrong with this one except it is so thin. I see why so May people use as a sunscreen base it’s perfect for that. By the time I bought this and add butters etc to thicken I’m pricing out of the price point I want to sell at. However, that being said, if my clients demand an “mostly natural” product I’ll be purchasing this one.
Excellent base for easy DIY formulas
I got this to make sunscreen and it is excellent. I like it enough to use it as a skin moisturizer, too. I think the consistency is perfect, especially since I am mixing in zine oxide powder at 20%. I heat it up a bit and mix in the powder, which allows it to be dispensed into lotion bottles with a funnel.
