Add the phase A ingredients to a heat-resistant glass. Add the phase B ingredients, one by one, to another heat-resistant beaker and mix.
Place the two glasses in a water bath and heat to 75°C, stirring both from time to time. Once they have reached the desired temperature, they are removed from the water bath.

Phase A is slowly poured over phase B, while mixing. Then mix with the mini mixer for 3 minutes.
To speed up the cooling process, place the glass in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.

To the composition cooled to body temperature, add the rest of the ingredients one by one - phase C - with thorough mixing after each one. Leave to rest for 10 minutes, then mix again for about 2 minutes.
The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~ 6,5

The result is a cream with a light and non-greasy texture, pleasant to apply, with an enjoyable scent. Apply a small amount and spread on the face and neck with smoothing movements. It can also be used as a day cream.
