Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature over 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is over 75°C, weigh and add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients together in a separate larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so that the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into the larger bowl (Stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Make sure the temperature is over 75°C and continue to stir for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the bowl from the double boiler and put it into a pan of cold water to cool down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the lotion is under 40°C, add the remaining Stage 3 ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“That really depends on how much Titanium Dioxide is added and for what purpose. A little will only give the lotion a more white appearance whereas enough to have any sun protection benefits may not combine well and leave the lotion feeling a little gritty.”

Would this lend itself to the addition of titanium at all? Thank you
