Sanitize the dedicated containers and utensils you will work with, details in the general safety guidelines.

Preparation method:
In two separate heat-resistant glass beakers, transfer the ingredients of phases A and B.
Phases A and B are placed in a water bath, heating them to 70°C, after which they are removed from the heat.

Transfer the contents of phase B over phase A and mix for 3 minutes. To accelerate the cooling process, place the composition over a bowl of cold water and continue mixing for another 3 minutes.

Let the composition cool to body temperature and add the ingredients of phase C one at a time, with thorough mixing after each. The cream thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container. 

The result is a light, non-greasy and delicate cream, with a moisturizing effect, supporting the skin's natural barrier, slightly seboregulatory and anti-aging. After application it is quickly absorbed and does not leave a greasy film on the skin.

Options:

  • the perfume can be replaced with another one according to preferences, or an essential oil suitable for the skin type can be used; the fragrance can be removed from the recipe if an unscented cream is desired, supplementing accordingly the amount of a floral water from phase B
  • instead of jojoba oil you can use another vegetable oil, for example: kukui, watermelon, macadamia, rice or caprilis oil
