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

Preparation method:
Add the phase A ingredients to a heat-resistant container. The phase B ingredients are added to another heat-resistant container.
Both phases are placed in a water bath and heated to 70°C, stirring each in the meantime. 

Remove from the water bath and combine as follows: phase B is poured slowly but without interruption over phase A, while mixing continuously. Then mix with the mini mixer for 3 minutes. 
To accelerate the cooling process, place the beaker in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for 3 more minutes. If the mixer can no longer cope due to the thickening of the composition, switch to energetic manual homogenization.

In the composition cooled to body temperature, the rest of the ingredients - phase C - are incorporated one by one, thoroughly mixing after each one.
The cream thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container. The consistency of the cream will be finalized the next day.

The result is a light and gentle cream with a pleasant, invigorating scent. It contains moisturizing, soothing and emollient ingredients, it is easily absorbed and leaves the skin smooth, velvety, well-groomed. It can be used after shaving, but also as a day cream.
