So, I've been using my lotions for almost 2 weeks. No break outs. Seems good so far!
However, I do notice that my lotions have 'drag' to them. The texture is creamy for sure, but there is some drag on the skin. I've purchased some dimethicone, cyclomethicone, and isopropyl myristate. They are known to provide more slip to lotions. Also I ordered some modified corn starch (Dry-Flo) which is supposed to provide a little more velvety feel to the lotion. I've also read that Sodium lactate which I already have for soap making is a good less sticky alternative to glycerin.
So, next time I make lotion I'll try some of these additives and hopefully it will reduce the drag on the skin.
