How to Make Glutathione Lotion

Making your own glutathione lotion at home can save you money. Glutathione powder can be ordered in bulk online from many sources and many bottles of glutathione lotion can be made for a fraction of the cost of buying the lotion itself. Use a high quality carrier oil, like avocado, almond or hemp, to enhance the skin rejuvenating effects of homemade glutathione lotion. You can also enhance the smell as well as the therapeutic quality of your lotion by adding one or several essential oils like geranium, lavender or tea tree. Use this recipe to make one 473ml bottle of homemade glutathione lotion.

  1. Fill the small saucepan with water and put in on the stove on high heat until it boils and then reduce heat and let simmer.

  2. Combine 1/2 cup of emulsifying wax with 1/2 cup of oil in the 1 cup measuring cup and place the cup in the hot water so that the two ingredients melt together.

  3. Boil water in the large saucepan and then fill the 2-cup measuring cup halfway, to the 1 cup mark.

  4. Pour the melted wax and oil into the blender and then add the hot water. Blend on medium speed until it has a smooth and even consistency.

  5. Add 2 tablespoons of glutathione powder to the lotion in the blender and set to low or "mix" for several minutes. Essential oils can also be added at this point; 4 to 10 drops should be enough.

  6. Pour the glutathione lotion into the lotion bottle and put the cap on. Shake vigorously and store in a cool dry place away from light.

  7. Tip

    If glutathione powder is too expensive for your budget, you can use N-acetylcysteine (NAC), which is also available in bulk or at health food stores and is converted into glutathione by the body.
