Amerikan Body Art is a family-run business, so we are still able to operate while respecting social-distancing rules. We will continue to operate so long as Florida is not under a total lockdown.
As I'm sure all of you are aware, the Coronavirus has severely impacted supply chains for certain products that are in high demand at the moment. Due to the nature of being in the cosmetic manufacturing business, we have 99% alcohol and Aloe gel currently in stock. It is not our intention to profit from a difficult situation such as this, but we understand that many of you are in need of these products. We have the alcohol priced at wholesale and we have reduced the price of bulk aloe gel by 25%.
Please read the product description for the 99% alcohol before ordering. There are strict shipping regulations that we must adhere to, so the product is only available for shipping within the continental US.
There are many articles currently on the internet, with regards to making hand sanitizer. The consensus appears to indicate that the best recipe is 2 parts 99% alcohol plus 1 part aloe gel (by volume). Put it in a bottle and shake the bejeezus out of it. It will be a little runnier than the commercially made product, but you want that high alcohol volume, so don't adjust the ratio of alcohol to gel.
Thank you for your continued support and please let us know if there is anything we can do for you.
**Please read this before ordering**
Due to shipping regulations, we can only ship up to (2) bottles in an order, and the package must be shipped via surface mail. Orders containing alcohol will take longer to arrive than usual. We can only ship alcohol to the the 48 continental US states. Please do not order more than 2 bottles, and please do not order this product if you are not within the continental US.
I can't believe I have to say this, but I already have people completely ignoring what I've said. If you order more than (2) bottles, or order for shipment outside of the continental US, we will issue you a gift certificate for the value of the product that we cannot ship. Our payment processor will not refund the fees that we pay when we receive your payment, so if you prefer a refund over a gift certificate, we will deduct paypal fees (3%) from your refund. To avoid this issue altogether, please adhere to the rules stated above. Thank you for understanding.

Most of our glitters are suitable for mixing in a water-based formula EXCEPT: Holographic Glitter Stars or Hearts, Holographic Gold, Holographic Silver, Holographic Blue, Holographic Pink, Holographic Turquoise, Holographic Green, Holographic Rose Gold. These colors of glitter will dissolve in the base. To get a holographic effect, you can mix opaque glitter colors with other holographic glitters. This base can also be used for other cosmetic recipes.

I didn't really want to get into making this, but I realize that many of you don't have what you need to do all the measuring and whatnot. So I'll keep making it, as long as I am still allowed to come into the warehouse and have the supplies available.
I am mixing 99% alcohol (65% of mixture), aloe gel base (34% of mixture), and lavender essential oil (1% of mixture). This mixture is more runny than your store-bought hand sanitizer as I am not adding any additional thickeners, etc... I am keeping the recipe simple so that I know that there's enough of the alcohol in there to do what it needs to do.
The aloe gel ingredients are: Water, Carbomer, Triethanolamine, Jojoba Oil, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E.
