This is the first of a new series of e-zines, Learn to Formulate, in which SwiftCraftyMonkey takes an in-depth look at a specific issue, like creating less greasy lotions. You’ll learn how to alter existing lotion formulas and create new ones using less greasy feeling emollients and different emulsifiers. 

Plus a special bonus! Susan has included sensory comparison charts for emulsifiers, thickeners, butters, light oils, and heavier oils along with a general comparison chart for the greasiness of our oils, butters, esters, silicones, and thickeners. 


    This e-Zine is published in English and is not available in any other languages.  This e-Zine 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 lives 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. 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 and their adorable dog, Sasja.
