Making Lotion: Emulsifiers in Action
Emulsifiers in action– when oil and water do mix! Typically creating a lotion or cream takes three phases: a water phase, an oil phase and a finishing phase that occurs after your emulsion has cooled. But oil and water don’t mix. Or do they?

Honey Recipes For your Home Spa
Honey is great for the skin. It can be used directly on the skin as a mask or added with other ingredients. The following recipes are designed to be mixed and used immediately. Honey will only suspend ingredients for a short period of time. We have retail ready honey spa products at Essential Wholesale for those wishing to create a product line from honey.
There are plenty of reasons to add honey to your beauty regimine for all skin types. Honey is a well known antibacterial and antifungal agent. It is rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids.

A Closer Look: Vanilla CO2 Extracts
Last week we introduced our new carbon dioxide extracts. These are genuinely spectacular ingredients. I think we should start with vanilla CO2.

Summer Skin Care
Summertime is the best time for your skin, especially if you’ve made the proper transition out of the winter months. In the winter, skin can form a protective layer by drying out, and naturally we need to lose those extra dead skin cells as the summer approaches. Regular exfoliation in the Springtime can bring a new glow to the skin later in Summer as those dry and dead skin cells get properly (and gently!) removed.
