Lotion Bar

This lotion bar is made with mango butter and other moisturizing oils. Lotion bars are typically made in molds or in twist up/push up containers (like a deodorant container). When you rub the lotion bar on your hands, elbows, knees, heels, etc.. you body temperature will melt a small amount of the lotion.

This recipe makes 6 lotion bars if you use the 2.25 oz Lotion Bar Tubes we sell in our Etsy Store!

3.2 oz of Mango Butter

3.1 oz of Beeswax

2.8 oz of Sunflower Oil

1.1. oz of Coconut Oil

.3 oz of Rice Bran Oil

.2 oz of Isopropyl Myristate (IPM)

.2 oz of Cyclomethicone

.1 oz of Fragrance Oil

Melt the first six ingredients (everything but the Cyclomethicone and Fragrance Oil) in a double boiler or in the microwave. When all the ingredients have melted, add the cyclomethicone and fragrance oil, then pour into a mold or twist up deodorant container.

Let your lotion bar harden and enjoy!

Soap On!
