Please take a look at my formula? First timer!Hey all. Hope you are well. First ever time having a go in the kitchen yesterday!
Could you take a little look at my formula please?
Shea butter 60%
Apricot Kernal Oil 20%
Evening Primrose Oil 10%
Grapeseed oil 8%
Sweet Orange Essential Oil 1%
Vitamin E 1%A few things to mention: I melted the Shea butter using double boiler method, added the oils whilst still hot (didn’t heat the oils), chucked in the fridge for 30 mins, added essential oil and vit E and then whipped. It didn’t go extremely fluffy, more like a lotion.Product felt a bit too oily/greasy, didn’t sink into the skin well but did eventually.
Also important to mention, it would suggest 1% Vit E is far too much, more like 0.1%, but I can’t get 0.1% of Vit E oil out of the little beaker, it’s far too gloopy and you lose most of it to the spoon/vialDo I even have the process right? Should oils and butters be heated? What should I change in formulation to be more body buttery, less greasy! I’ve been researching to high heavens! Thank you!
