I don't make lotions from milk.  You have to get the milk hot enough and it ends up pasteurized.  Then you end up with milk that starts rotting.

I've seen recipes that use 100% milk as the liquid, but I've heard it's best not to use more than 10% milk as part of your liquid.

I have a number of lotion recipes on my [http://www.mullerslanefarm.com/lotionmaking]website[/url], but the recipe I use most now is:

8% each Sweet Almond Oil & Fractionated Coconut Oil
3% stearic acid
4% E-wax NF

72% water
5% glycerin

To that:
.5% total weight Dimethicone
1% IPM
recommended amount of preservative  (I use Liquid Germall Plus)

If you add steric acid to the milk and blend well it will combine into lotion without separating.  I heat my oils and cool them to 100degrees before adding the milk mixture.

i've been making GM lotion for years and it is one of my best sellers. smile.png my rule of thumb is roughly 30% oils/butters, 40% distilled water and 30% GM. be sure to use appropriate preservatives. my recipe has been successfully challenge tested using phenonip. smile.png
