    Yes.........simple recipe works great!

    27.5 grams of Cerave Moisturizing Lotion
    6 grams of oil (Apricot, Grapeseed, jojoba, etc whatever works for you)
    12 grams zinc oxide
    3-4 drops of polysorbate 80

    This would be used alone not with any other SS.

    Hey @gymrat
    From your recipe for the sunscreen, I'm looking to try this out with a nivea lotion (without carbomer) that I use for my DIY LA lotion
    Cinnamon or Ylang-ylang EO
    Non nano & uncoated zinc oxide
    But i can't get the last bit, the polysorbate 80

    Am I okay so far?
    Thanks for your help

    The oil needs to be a "carrier" oil not an essential oil. This is where the Poly 80 comes into play....you will need an emulsifier so the oil and cream bind together.
