Method
Melt the stearic acid in the hot water at 158F/70C and stir. Add phase B to phase A while stirring. Remove phase A/B from the heat. Add phase C to A/B and stir until homogenous. Pre-mix phase D, by sprinkling the xanthan gum into the water and mixing well. Add phase D to phase A/B/C at temperature below 100F/40C and stir well. Fill the liquid into the foamer pump bottle.

Properties
The foaming bottle produces a creamy foam (but not as dense as a mousse in a bottle thats under pressure). The allantoin has anti-inflammatory properties and soothes the skin.
