Today we'll take a look at the last of my Aristoflex AVC lotions - okay, the last for a bit because I'm in love with this emulsifier, and you'll definitely see more in the future.
I'm using many of the same ingredients as my previous lotions with this emulsifier, so I'll refer you to the related posts links below to learn more about why I'm including allantoin, panthenol, and sea kelp bioferment.
If you didn't know already, I love love love babassu oil. It's a solid oil very similar to coconut oil, but it offers a non-greasy silky feeling. It melts at slightly above room temperature - 24?C or 76?F - so it'll melt on contact with your skin. It's a wonderful inclusion in this recipe if you're looking for a light, non-greasy moisturizer or body milk. Because it's solid at room temperature, you'll get a thicker lotion with this inclusion, more like the first one I did in this series. (This one with silicones and esters...)
Please note, I am not responsible for your addiction to babassu oil. I will not encourage you to try it with kukui oil, like I do in this recipe, nor will I encourage you to try it in a body butter, like this recipe. Or to use it in a whipped butter, like this recipe or like this recipe. If you get addicted to it, don't come looking for me to blame! I warned you!

Measure distilled or de-ionized water into a container, then add the rest of the ingredients in order. You will need to melt the babassu oil slightly, so just heat it up in a double boiler for a few minutes until liquid, then add to the lotion container. Mix well. Bottle and rejoice!
What did I think about this lotion" I think it's my favourite of the six! I love the light, non-greasy feeling and the silkiness of the babassu oil. I can feel it on my skin a l...
