Back to Basics  E- Book  - Digital Download
Formulating and Creating Anhydrous Products

by Susan Barclay Nichols
e-book (PDF, 1.13 MB)
123 pages

This e-book is all about making anhydrous products, those made without water. Because anhydrous products don't contain water, an (antimicrobial/antifungal) preservative is often not needed (altough you'll want an antioxidant to protect against rancidity).  This makes them ideal starting formulations for the novice formulator.

It will cover:

  • Understanding rancidity and means of prevention
  • Equipment and processes
  • Chemistry of oils
  • Understanding fatty acids and hydrogenation
  • Making Whipped Butters
  • Making Lotion Bars
  • Making Balms
  • Making Oil Based Scrubs
  • Making Bath Melts
  • Making oil based Fragrance Sprays
  • Profiles for carrier oils and butter

In addition, the book is full of information that will help you understand the basics of anhydrous product formulation.  Also consider Lotion Making 101,  Formulating and Creating Lotions, and Hair Care Products (all sold here) as great additions to the beginning cosmetic formulator's arsenal of educational materials that will have you formulating the way you want to in no time at all!  In addition, your purchase of this and all of Susan's books goes to support the Youth Groups she facilitates at her local libraries.   It's a win-win for all!

About the author

Susan Barclay Nichols is a family support worker living and working in the Fraser Valley, B.C., Canada.  She stumbled upon a recipe for bath bombs and became obsessed with creating bath and body products. This is when her extreme interest in chemistry began. 

In 2009, she started Point of Interest, a bath and body products blog to share her love of creating products, and it somehow turned into a series of four e-books she wrote to raise money for the youth groups she and her husband run at their local libraries.

Her favorite hobbies – other than creating bath and body products – include sewing, trivia, criticizing and correcting people’s grammar and spelling, and striving to achieve expert status on bass in Rock Band 3. She lives with her wonderful husband, Raymond, her mother, and their adorable dog, Blondie.

I've used Lotioncrafter on a number of occasions, and always found the products to be top quality and good value for money. Jen has always provided great support and helped me to straighten out problems with credit cards and delivery (I live outside the USA). I would recommend Lotioncrafter wholeheartedly to anyone seeking top quality cosmetic ingredients at affordable (and very competitive) prices. Thanks again Jen!

A great experience. Prompt service, delivery in 2 days, box carefully packed with a thank you item, and when shipping costs turned out to be less than estimated, a partial refund. Email communication throughout the transaction really makes this company exceptional... Will definitely recommend to others. Thanks so much!
