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!

This book is published in English and is not available in any other languages.  This book is in PDF format and it is sent as a digital download.  It is not available in any other format and not available except as a digital download.

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.

Lotioncrafter's office and warehouse will be closed on Thursday and Friday, November 23rd and 24th for the Thanksgiving holiday. During that time email and telephone calls will not be returned (we will respond as quickly as possible next week, after shipping deadlines have been met on Monday afternoon). Our shopping cart will remain active and we will continue to process orders. UPS and Mail shipping will resume on Monday morning, November 27th. DUE TO THE CLOSURE, IF YOU CALL OR WRITE TO ALTER ORDERS ONCE THEY ARE PLACED, DUE TO THE VOLUME OF ORDERS WE WILL BE PROCESSING MONDAY, WE CANNOT GUARANTEE WE WILL SEE YOUR EMAIL OR HEAR YOUR MESSAGE BEFORE SHIPPING. IF WE ARE ABLE TO DO SO, YOUR ORDER WILL BE PULLED FROM THE QUEUE, ADJUSTED AND SHIPPED AFTER OTHER ORDERS WHICH COULD DELAY SHIPPING BY A DAY. Thank you for your understanding.

Carolyn Tracy, (More Minerals)

I am impressed. I placed an order on Monday morning, by that afternoon I already had a UPS confirmation for pick up in my emailbox! Lotioncrafter not only offers the most amazing ingredients that makes any formulator's mouth water but it has fast shipping to boot. I am glad I discovered this company.

Jen/Lotioncrafter continues to meet and exceed my expectations. I will be a customer for life! Not only do they provide consistently high quality and hard to find products they always deliver excellent service and ship quickly. They truly excel at what they do and I have never been disappointed.
cynthia, (esencia de san miguel)

I have known Jennifer for many years and she has never steered me wrong. Often when experimenting to find the right product for my eyes I have had to rely on her expertise and not one single time has she not been available to help. You can't go wrong here, thankfully customer service is alive and thriving at Lotioncrafter.

Hello this is Barry from mountaincrafted and I ordered Hydrolyzed Silk Protein from this company and what a difference in our products it made! We use it in all of our hair & skin products, but our customers love it most in our goat's milk soap. Try it, it will surely boost your sales!
