Therapeutic Lotion


Therapeutic Humectant Lotion


Combine phases A and B separately with heating to 65½oC. Homogenize B into A for a sufficient time to ensure good emulsification. Stir cool to 45½oC and add fragrance.

Ingredients Reference:

Stearamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate is a quaternary ammonium salt. Function: Antistatic Agent; Hair Conditioning Agent. Class: Surfactants - Esters – Ethoxylates.  

Glycerin is a neutral, sweet-tasting, colorless, thick liquid which freezes to a gummy paste and which has a high boiling point. Glycerin can be dissolved into water or alcohol, but not oils. On the other hand, many things will dissolve into glycerin easier than they do into water or alcohol. So it is a good solvent. 


Titanium dioxide pigment is a fine white powder. When used in paints, plastics or paper, it provides for maximum whiteness and opacity. It gives paint high hiding power, meaning the ability to mask or hide a substrate. It does this more effectively than any other white pigment. Today, titanium dioxide pigment is by far the most important material used by the paints and plastics industry for whiteness and opacity. These unique properties are derived from the refractive index of titanium dioxide. The refractive index expresses the ability to bend and scatter light. Titanium dioxide has the highest refractive index of any material known to man, greater even than diamond. To take advantage of this property, titanium dioxide must be mined, refined and ground to a fine, uniform particle size.  


Methylparaben is a member of the paraben family, a group of compounds that possess antibacterial and antifungal properties. These agents are esters of para-hydroxybenzoic acid, which is why they're collectively called parabens. However, in contrast to its cousins, ethylparaben, butylparaben, and propylparaben, methylparaben receives its specific name owing to the fact that its chemical structure contains the methyl alkyl group.  


Steareth-2 are polyethylene glycol ethers of stearci acid. They are waxy compounds. In cosmetics and personal care products, Steareth ingredients are used in the formulation of personal cleanliness products and deodorants, as well as suntan, fragrance, skin, eye and hair products. 


Hexyl Laurate is a skin conditioning emollient, solvent, and viscosity agent used to thicken beauty products and cosmetics. Because of its somewhat fruity flavor, it is often used in lipsticks and lip products. It is an ester made when hexyl alcohol and lauric acid are combined.  


C12-15 Alcohols Benzoate. The ester of benzolic acid and C- 12-15 alcohols. An emollient (acts to smooth and soften skin) that provides a dry, silky feel to skin.


Is a resin-modified polysiloxane that acts as breathable, protective barrier in skin care and cosmetic applications. This non-greasy, tenacious silicone fluid also provides excellent lubricating properties and is an effective water-proofing agent for sunscreen creams and lotions.  

Propylparaben, the propyl ester of p-hydroxybenzoic acid, occurs as a natural substance found in many plants and some insects, although it is manufactured synthetically for use in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and foods. It is a preservative typically found in many water-based cosmetics, such as creams, lotions, shampoos and bath products.
