Creamy and luxurious, this High Intensity Moisture Lotion not only strengthens the skin's natural moisture barrier, but it nourishes and softens even the driest skin to restore its beauty and radiance. This base is fast absorbing, leaves no sticky feeling and has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts and various raw materials can be added in order to customize each product.
Usage: We recommend that no more than 0.5% of any essential oil be added to a Liter our cosmetic bases. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time this may cause our bases to lose some of their luxurious properties including viscosity, smooth feel and rate of absorption.
Note: One property of the High Intensity Moisture Lotion is that, over time, it becomes pearly and softens. When it is freshly made it is an opaque, hard white cream. Within a month it becomes less hard and starts to pearlize. This is the nature of that product.

Rating: I am so very sad that this product is going to be discontinued. It is such an amazing product. My customers keep coming back for it. It is light, nourishing and very hydrating. I do not know what I am going to do when is all gone from their stock. I guess my search will continue.

Rating: Another BINGO from New Directions for us. We were using the other base for our foot rejuvenation cream but after trying this, the results and comments from happy feet say we made the right move by using New Directions. It is amazing how little peppermint EO is required to obtain a noteworthy signature.

Rating: Nice cream, I like the texture. Not too thick (thinner than the milk).

Rating: All I can say is PERFECT. Our lotion maker quit, so we began the hunt for a new base. We tried umpteen different bases from umpteen different companies, and this one definitely stood out. Rich, thick, pearly, soaks right in with absolutely no greasy feel. Thick enough to be marketed as a "cream" rather than a lotion if not much is added to it. Other than any desired fragrance, it doesn't need anything added at all.
Rating: Honestly, this is great as-is. It absorbs very quickly with no greasy residue and feels like your skin is actually drinking a glass of water - it is that refreshing. I haven't added anything to it yet and am not sure if I will - why mess with this wonderfully made product?

Rating: This is by far the best base lotion I have EVER used. I tried other bases and just wasn't "feeling it" 100 percent. I ordered this one and not only did it look rich and beautiful(creamy and slightly pearlescent), the quality was beyond belief (highly hydrating and NOT STICKY). I have worked in the high-end cosmetics industry for over 15 years, so I do know the difference between quality and just so/so products. I was looking for something that would guarantee a repeat customer and this is definitely it. I have purchased many other products from NDA also and have been five star satisfied every time. Should I do a commercial? :) Thanks!
