It is rich in Omega 6 & 9 (Oleic Acid & Linoleic Acid).
Antioxidants, helping to fight free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin, are found in the Vitamin E.
It may be used daily, applied to any area of the face or body that would benefit from some gentle, nourishing skincare.
With increased use of face masks / coverings our skin can become more sensitive due to the mask rubbing. Regular use of our new Base Lotion can help to keep your skin healthy during this unusual time.
It is both palm free and vegan.
Although our new Base Lotion is a complete product which does not need anything added to it you may add up to 3% of oil soluble ingredients without compromising the integrity of the preservative system in the product. This can include up to 1% of your chosen essential oil blend or any of our fabulous oil soluble Active Ingredients, Carrier Oils & Botanical CO2 Extracts such as Algaktiv Zen, Pomegranate Seed Oil and Arctic Blackcurrant CO2 Extract.
Please see below for information on the CPSR (Cosmetic Product Safety Report) & PET (Preservative Efficacy Test) requirements if you do add anything to the base product.
The pH of this product, without any extra ingredients is pH 5-6, which is the optimum pH for a lotion.
Please check the final pH of your product after you have made any additions. This must fall between pH3-12 in order for the preservative to continue functioning fully.
If you are intending to resell this product without the addition of any extra ingredients please ensure you obtain a revised CPSR in your own name. You will need to contact Oxford BioSciences for this service for which there is a cost of approximately £40.
If you add any oil soluble ingredients to the Base Lotion you will need to obtain a new CPSR that includes your added ingredients. You will not need a new PET.
Please note: This is an arrangement that Aromantic has with Oxford BioSciences so if you choose to go to a different cosmetic assessor that arrangement will not stand and you will need both a new CPSR & PET.
If you choose to add water soluble ingredients (remember only up to 3%) or a combination of both oil soluble and water soluble Active Ingredients, Botanical Extracts or Carrier Oils you will need to obtain both a new CPSR and PET. This will be necessary as adding water soluble ingredients has the potential to upset the balance of the preservative system in the Base Lotion and will apply regardless of which assessor you choose to use. If any water soluble added ingredients are acidic in nature be aware that they may cause separation of the Base Lotion and are likely to change the final pH of the product.
