    You need...


    Water Phase

    Oil Phase

    Emulsifying Phase


    Start your formulas on a base of 100% of either OZ. or GR.


    So a basic formula for a cream would start

    Water Phase 60%

    Oil Phase 30%

    Emulsifying Phase 10%


    Lotion

    Water Phase 75%

    Oil Phase 15%

    Emulsifying Phase 10%


    Because you are working on 100% bases if you decrease or increase and amount you must incrase or decrease another ingredient by the same %

    Example

    These 2 formulas contain water so we need a Preservative we will use Phenonip at 1% since we have added an ingredient we have to decrease another one

    so now we can do

    Water Phase 59% from the 60%

    Oil Phase 30%

    Emulsifying Phase 10%

    Preservative 1%

    Now you need a scent which we will add at 2% so now the formula will read

    Water Phase 59%

    Oil Phase 28% from the 30%

    Emulsifying Phase 10%

    Preservative 1%

    EO/FO 2%


    Ok Here we go making a recipe

    we are making 50 oz of this lotion



    Ingredients....................................... ..........................Amount

    Distilled water ..............59% x 50 oz = 29.50 oz

    Oil Phase

    Avacado.......................10% x 50oz = 5.00 oz
    Sunflower ....................10% x 50 oz = 5.00 oz
    vit. E..............................8% x 50 oz = 4.00 oz


    Emulsifying Phase

    Emulsifying wax NF........10% x 50 oz = 5.00 oz


    Preservative
    Phenonip..................1% x 50 oz = .50 oz


    Fragrance
    Lavender EO.............2% x 50 oz = 1.00oz


    Total ......................100%........................ ...........50 oz


    combine your Emulsifying wax, and oils. Heat gently in a double boiler to 160 degree( or heat in a micro) Make sure wax is melted

    Heat water to 160 drgree when both are heated to 160 degrees slowly pour the water into the oils Mix until thoroughly emulisified
    As it cools the mix will get thicker when it is warm not hot add your Phenonip and your EO and blend. Fill your container and let cool completely before closing. :thumbsup

    How did it turn out?


    TIP
    What I usually do if I see a something I want to try to make I look up the ingredients to see how much is usually in a recipe like if it says use at 1% then I go back and but it at that percentage in my recipe. With so much info. on the interent I haven't ran into any ingredient yet that I haven't found any info for.

    Me again!!
    I made the lotion formula tonite & it came out more like a cream. I like it but I was wanting a thinner mixture. Could you suggest a way to thin it? Or should I just let well enough alone and try again w/a new mix?

    Here's what I did................

    water-74%=14.8oz
    germaben-1%=.2oz
    oils-13%=2.6oz
    eo-2%=.4oz
    e-wax-10%=2oz
    I LOVE my NAPPZ :) !!
