Weekday Wondering: How to make a lotion bar less greasy"





In this post, It's that time of the year again: Lotion bars, Tonya asks: I am experimenting with lotion bars and have a question about tapioca but greasiness- I guess would be the the actual question.

My most recent mix of ingredients includes these variations. My question is how do I get the tapioca starch to fully melt" In bars I made before and am still using I'm finding a slight bit of grittiness over time and I suspect the tapioca as I had a hard time getting it to mix but I also used safflower oil in that attempt instead of coconut. 

Recipe 1
30 grams soy wax (natural soy 444 wax)
20 grams cocoa butter, unrefined 
20 grams virgin coconut oil
1 gram tapioca starch (Bobs Red Mill)
1 gram Vitamin E (natures gate with carthamus tinctorious safflower seed oil,vitis vinifer grape seed oil, calendula officinalis flower extract.)

Recipe 2
Same but sub 50% of oil for almond oil so 10 grams almond and 10 grams virgin coconut

I made these into little ice cube mold hearts for my nieces. They smell like a candy bar and have the perfect consistancy to melt just enough in little hands. 

The first batch I added the tapioca after removing from heat and slightly cooled to 122°F just before Vitamin e. There was powder in the bottom end as I poured so I mixed the last bit and poured the final row of hearts and could not tell the difference between the ones at the beginning when they solidified. The next batch I tried mixing the tapioca after everything was melted but still in the hot water bath. The same thing happened. 
I dont know yet if these will get gritty as only a week has passed and so far they are good. I added the tapioca to dry the bars out as my prior attempts left my skin to greasy/oily feeling even 2 hours after application. Even if they don't get gritty I want the ingredients to distribute evenly. 

I like using ingredients that don't contain animal products. I do use beeswax in my products, but I like the soy wax for these as it is softer and the extra 50% seems to work well for me as a consistency. Maybe there is a better option or recipe you could suggest than tapioca"

Before I start, can I make a suggestion" Please put your recipes to total 100% as it's easier to figure out what you're using in the product. Your total is 72 grams here, so that means the recipe turns out to be:

41.6% soy wax
27.8% cocoa butter, unrefined
27.8% virgin coconut oil
1.4% tapioca starch
1.4% Vitamin E

Another quick suggestion: Generally, keep the Vitamin E at 1% or lower. I've been reading that using too much can actually increase the rate of rancidity, so I'm suggesting 0.5% or lower now.

We can see in this recipe that you have more than 1% tapioca starch, which could be an issue for solubility in the future. (Let's say 1 gram of something dissolves in 100 grams of something else. If we have 1.4 grams, that means 0.4 grams isn't dissolved. That's a big deal!)

Second question about tapioca starch...It doesn't di...
