I have just made a batch of my Goats Milk & Oatmeal Cream....and remembered to take pictures this time, yay! I love making lotions and creams. It is quite magical to watch them thicken and become something smooth and creamy or thick and luscious ~
Here are my melted oils, butters and emulsifing wax:
Once combined with the water-based ingredients everything turns milky white:
After time and cooling, the mixture becomes gorgeously thick!
Here is some in a jar, almost ready to be labelled:
This gorgeous, thick cream spreads well and sinks in fast with a lovely velvety after-feel. Made with a generous amount of soothing aloe vera juice; teamed with skin-loving oils and butters chosen for their anti-oxidant properties; and including colloidal oatmeal - for its soothing relief of dry, itchy or sensitive skin; and powdered goats milk - for its soothing, smoothing and moisturising properties. This is best used unscented if you have a sensitive skin or certain skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis. If you would like to try some you can find it on my Facebook page and also in my Ethikl store.
Have a wonderful day!
