Creamy Suntan Lotion

3/4 cup (180 ml.) water
3 tea bags (do not use instant tea)
1/4 cup (60 ml.) lanolin
1/4 cup (60 ml.) sesame oil
1/2 teaspoon (2.5 ml.) perfume (optional)

Heat the water to boiling, add tea bags. Leave them to brew for 20 minutes and squeeze them occasionally before removing. Put lanolin, sesame oil and 1/4 cup strong tea into blender. Cover and process at low speed. Remove cap immediately and pour in the remaining tea in a steady stream. Use a rubber spatula to keep ingredients around the processing blades. Add perfume and give fragrance to the sun-tan lotion. This recipe makes about 1 cup of a soft, tan-colored cream which spreads smoothly on the skin, and gives a sensation of moistness. It dries without feeling sticky. This cream actually repels water and will stay on though swimming.

Creamy Suntan Lotion will screen out about half of the burning sun rays while allowing a large percentage of the tanning rays to get through. However, if you burn after 5 minutes of exposure, do not rely on this cream to protect you.
