  Method: Combine phase A ingredients in a heat resistant glass beaker and mix well, until xanthan gum is dissolved and the solution becomes viscous. Heat phase A to 70C/158F. In another heat resistant glass beaker combine phase B ingredients and heat to the same temperature.
Add phase B to phase A and mix continuously. Remove from the heat and continue to mix until the solution becomes creamy and the temperature drops to 40C/100F. Add phase C ingredients to phase A/B, one by one, mixing well after each ingredient. Test the pH if below 4.5 add 2-4 drops of TEA then measure again. Ideal pH for this emulsion is around 5-5.5.

Properties: This moisturizing lotion is ideal for the normal-dry skin or skin that was exposed to sun and needs replenishing minerals, amino acids and vitamins from aloe vera and moisture from saccharide isomerates (72h moisture), which creates a moisture reservoir that lasts several hours.
