Hey guys, this is part 2 of my DIY Series.
Will be posting receipes for both a DIY Venusia and a DIY Divine Diva's Divine No.3 Lotion
Disclaimer: I do not know the exact % of the actives she uses in her cream, so the % would be up to you, also this recipe does include clobestasol propionate
Now looking at her description of her Divine 3, she has goat milk, shea butter, cocnut powder, Alpha arbutin, b3, CP(roid) and other things
So lets break it Down:
So she uses shea butter, cocunut and goat milk, so i was thinking to let this be our base cream, so we will either make a Shea butter cream from scratch or by a premade one...its up to you......
So lets make a Shea butter cream that has cocunut oil and goats milk, this will be our base cream, that we will add our lightening ingredients + sterioids
1. Make Shea butter cream
Ive seen 2 two recipes that look interesting
if your lazy you can buy a premade shea butter cream
2. Now that we have our Shea butter cream as our base, its now time to add our actives to it...
So she uses b3, Alpha arbtin and Clobestasol Proprionate
On the bottle of the her N.03 lotion it says there is 4% aplah arbutin and it say a ;higher % of b3' so im gonna say since b3 lighten at 5%, that she might of used 5-7% b3, now remember i dont know the % of actives she uses but we can duplicate her lotion through trial and error
So now that we have that establised, we are gonna put the actives in the batch calculaor, the batch calculator is SOOO useful
Go to the batch calcultor and plug in the actives...so it should be as follows. b3 5%
alpha arbutin 4% and steriods 0.05% then plug in 90.95% so everything adds up to 100%
Now we want to make a 200g cream like hers, so put that in 'total batch volume' and then press calculate...
so it should show what we need to make our cream
Alpha arbutin- 8g
Now we just need to convert the grams to tsp...u can use google or whatever
Alpha Arbutin- 8g = 1.5tsp(probably add add a tincy more)
B3 - 10g =2tsp(probably add a tincy more)
So now that we have our actives measured, we are gonna add them to our cream..the Alpha arbutin and nicinamide are both soluble in water so we can dissolve both these actves preferbslly with distilled water and add to our Shea Butter base
Now that everything is mixed, we have to check the ph, if everthing is at the correct ph, we are good to go but if it need adjusting we can do so
3. Now for the Steriods. so im gonna say that the steriod in this lotion is Clobestasol Proprionate. now this might be the most difficult part...we can attempt this two ways
a. we can purchase liquid topical steriods amd probably use it at .05%...throw this into our batch calcultor and see what it spits out and add it to our cream
b. or we could use a topical steriod cream and mix it with our Shea butter mix cream..now if i remember correctly someone had stated that it might not work like that but ppl have mixed steriods creams with regular lightening creams to boost them...so it can work
an option is to use L'Abidjanaise coco butter cream...lol thats an inside joke btw, you should be snickering if you get it!!!....lol
1. Make/buy shea butter cream(make sure it has coconut oil and vit e in it)
2. add b3 and alpha arbutin to shea butter base...mix well
3. Add steroid agent to cream..mix well
Voila you have made your very own Divine No.3 Lotion
