Rooibos Lotion Base for Super Skin Hydration


Rooibos lotion base is a premium quality all natural creme, designed to be used as a base for creating your own hydrating face and skin lotions and serums.  It has a neutral aroma.  It has a fine, creamy texture and a lovely emollient quality, restoring skin tone and elasticity, and deeply moisturizing cells.

It is complete to use all on its own, especially for those who desire a fragrance free lotion.  It is a superior face and skin lotion, made with mostly organic and all natural ingredients.

Its real gift is the ability to maintain its texture and form when essential oils are added to customize the lotion.  This is rare for a natural base!  It can be made for numerous custom purposes by the addition of a small amount of essential oil.

Working With Rooibos Lotion Base

Rooibos lotion base can receive from 0.5% to 3% of essential oils or other botanical extracts, without changing its form.  This works out to about 1 to 6 drops of essential oil per ounce of base, which varies from one oil to another.  You will need to experiment to find the best amount of the oils that you choose to add.

We recommend adding only as much essential oil as you need, and making very small batches until you know how much you can add without changing the texture.

If too much hydrosol or essential oil is added, it will upset the formula balance and lower the shelf life of the product dramatically.

Another sign that you have added too much to the blend is when the lotion gets thinner with time.  Sometimes this can be corrected or helped by storing the blended product in the refrigerator.

Customizing Your Lotion

Although I prefer to make my own skin care products (see the blog for recipes and ideas), rooibos is the one lotion that I trust when I need to use something other than my own.  I have had really good results with it, and other loyal customers have reported that they will not run out of this base!

About Rooibos Lotion Base

Because this lotion is natural and not made with chemical preservatives, artificial humectants, phthalates, or other chemical additives, it may be more expensive than ordinary lotions.  The benefits of not putting synthetic chemicals on your skin, especially over years of time, greatly outweigh the extra cost, in our opinion.  Who can put a price on clean blood, a healthy liver, or happy, breathable skin?

The natural plant based formula is subject to variation in color, texture, and aroma from one batch to another.  This is actually a good thing.  The true signature of natural formulas is variation.

No two batches of any real plant extract will be alike, unless they are highly processed, standardized, and stabilized with chemical ingredients.  The fact that this lotion will vary from batch to batch, is reassuring that it is actually as natural as it is being advertised to be.

None of our products are recognized or approved by the FDA.  They are not intended to diagnose, treat, or cure any disease.  This information is anecdotal, and is provided for educational purposes only.  It is not meant to be taken as medical advice.  See a health care professional for medical advice.
