Phase I: The Water Phase: First, weigh out at least 850 grams of water. Keep in mind that you will not need quite this much, some will evaporate as it heats. It is always better to have too much than not enough. Now, place the water into a pot and place the pot on the stove top. Allow your water to heat to 180F. You want to keep the water at this temperature for 20 minutes. The heat is going to destroy any bacteria that is in the water. Remove the water from the heat source. Finally, weigh out 706 grams of the distilled water.
Phase II: The Oil Phase: Next, prepare your oils, waxes, and butters. So, weigh out all of the following ingredients: Stearic Acid, Silky Emulsifying Wax, Mango Butter, Argan Oil, and Avocado Oil. In a second larger pot, add a few inches of tap water. Now, place the larger (water) pot on your stove over medium heat. Place your smaller pot containing the oils into the larger (water) pot to create a double boiler. Melt and heat your oils ingredients, stirring occasionally as they are melting.
Phase III: The Mixing Phase: Once both your water and oils are at about 140F, place them both into a deep mixing bowl. Then, using your stick blender, mix them together. As you are mixing, you will notice the mixture will turn white. This means your lotion is starting to emulsify.
Phase IV: The Cool Down Phase: Now, allow your mixture to cool to 120 degrees Fahrenheit. Once the temperature of the cream has cooled to this temperature, add the Optiphen, Vitamin E Oil, and Jamaica Me Crazy Fragrance Oil. Again, use your stick blender to mix your ingredients together. As your almond cream cools, it will thicken. You will want to stick blend periodically as the cream is cooling. Finally, once the tropical body cream reaches room temperature, place it in your jars and place lids on top.
