  1. This sounds interesting and looks reach! What is corn starch for? I though it might be a thickener, but you have xanthan gum and soy wax added. Did you add it to reduce greasiness?

    1. Yes, indeed, Maja, it is for a mattifying effect! The lotion is welll received by combination and oily skin.

    2. I like greasiness in my butters, I really don't mind it, but for facial products, I'm totally with you. As my lotion crafing improves, I believe I'll try more and more varieties. (oh god, I just noticed-what happened to my spelling? Of course, it was supposed to be 'rich' in my first comment! I'm getting somehow charmed by your blog Iulia, lol!)

    3. Maja, relax, the spelling problems occur all the times in my texts too, but I never notice them before I publish them, only after... :)
