So I'm trying to make a calculator for making lotion and I'm stuck on how to make it so that the oils value is dependent on the water percentage value. Why do I do these things?

Has anyone made or know of a lotion calculator that is on the simple side and won't make me a migraine shake?

Such a calculator would be helpful for my wife who is interesting in learning to make lotion.

I want to keep this calculator basic. I actually made some mistakes with my last batch of lotion, which would explain why it is more like a cream than a lotion. So far, if I plug in the total batch weight, I will have nice start out point.

Edit- I worked out the kink and celebrated by trying chicken vindaloo for the first time. Spicy and tasty. Definitely a summer dish to cool you down.

Um, I've written software financial calculators in the past. I'm willing to give it ago, but you'll need to tell/explain what you need as I've never made lotion.
