Procedure
In secondary vessel combine 1-6, start mixing, add 7 and 8, and heat this oil phase to 90°C. Add 9-13 in order. To the main vessel add 14, start mixing, add 15 and, when dissolved, add 16. Heat to 90°C. In a separate vessel premix 17-19 and add to this water phase just prior to combining phases. When oil and water phases are uniform and at the defined temperatures, add the oil phase to the water phase with strong mixing without aeration. After 10 minutes, start homogenizing and start cooling.  When the batch is at 55°C, stop homogenizing and resume sweep mixing. When the batch is at 50°C add 20. In a separate vessel dilute 22 in 21 and, when uniform, add to batch. When the batch is again uniform add 23. Continue stirring until a smooth, homogeneous lotion.  Perform final quality assurance checks.
