This appears very liquid when bottled but it does thicken up overnight. This means it is easier to get into squeezy bottles.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development

“Adding more Honey Moisturiser would just be wasting your money as it is already in the recipe at 5%. It has no extra effect when used higher.

To make it more lotion-like, reduce the Emulsifying Wax to 4%, the Shea Butter to 1.5% and the Argan Oil to 6.5%.

Make up the difference to 100% with the water.

We have not tested this so cannot say if it will be stable – it is something you would need to try for yourself."
