i live in the south where things are hot, humid and sticky. i'd like to put this in a tube because i travel a lot. i've tried a couple, but i usually end up too oily, but my skin is so rough and dry in places.

thanks a bunch,

monet

You said your LB ends up oily what are you making? Here is my favorite
but you will have to tweak and work it to your liking.
4oz apricot kernal oil
2oz beeswax
2oz cocoa butter
2oz shea butter

I really like using grapeseed oil in lotion bars. I find it is absorbed well by the skin. I generally use 1 oz shea, 1 oz mango, 1 oz cocoa, 1 oz beeswax and 1.5-2 oz grapeseed. Good luck!

You can add a bit of corn starch, etc to cut the grease.

No problem! You can also use sweet almond oil.

I use a bit of Tapioca Pure in my whipped shea butter. Works great for cutting the greasiness.

lotion bar receipe

tried a little of all your suggestions, and what a difference! thanks a bunch! still need a little r & d, but i'm on the right track! tried a little dry-flow -f.n.w.l. left a nice smooth, non-greasy feel. used shea butter, jojoba and evening primrose oil. boy, my skin just soaked it up!

i'm a happy camper!
