It's getting oh so close to the time of year we can all hit the beach! I personally love the glow of the sun but I am a bit afraid of the damage the sun will do to my skin. The solution? Bronzing lotions! You can make this by using all Bitter Creek Products! This is a very fast, very simple product that will allow for a great return on your product dollar! These can easily market for $6-10 for a 4 oz bottle!

For this project you will need:

Lotion Base (available at both the North and South)
Bottles (available at both the North and South)
Caps (available at both the North and South)
Coconut Scent (available at both North and South)
Bronze Mica (available only at the North location)

Because our lotion base is so thick, I have to gently warm it in the microwave or heat the gallon by placing in a sink of very hot tap water to be able to pour it into my bottles using a funnel. You can also use a cake decorator squeeze funnel, or a zip-lock bag with a corner cut off if pouring cold. If making full gallon batches, our gallon pumps are the easiest way to fill bottles. Do not heat the lotion base over 100* F. Add 1 oz of fragrance per gallon of lotion base or follow the chart located on this page for smaller amounts:

To make the bronzer effect, you will want to use about 3/4 tsp per 4 oz of the base. Mix this in then pour into your bottles. This is an awesome summer product that will set you apart from the rest! It will leave a very light sheen with a hint of color on your skin! Perfect for a night on the town after a day at the beach!

You can also "customize" your base by adding 1/2 oz per gallon of any fixed oil! Soybean oil works great!

Happy Lotion Making!
