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

Preparation method:
Phase A and B ingredients are added to two separate heat-resistant containers.
Place both phases (A and B) in a water bath and heat to about 70°C, stirring occasionally. Once they have reached the right temperature, they are removed from the heat source.

The two phases are combined as follows: phase B is poured over phase A and mixed for 3 minutes. To accelerate cooling, place the composition over a bowl of cold water and continue mixing for another 3 minutes.

The rest of the ingredients - phase C - are incorporated in the composition cooled to body temperature, with thorough mixing after each one. The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~6.5

The result is a creamy, not too greasy cream with a beautiful texture and a soft floral scent. The yellowish color is given by jasmine wax. The cream is especially suitable for dry or normal skin. Contains moisturizing, nourishing and protective ingredients.

Options:

  • instead of squalane it is possible to add a vegetable oil, chosen according to preferences and its properties; some recommendations: avocado, almond, opuntia or argan oil
  • instead of coconut oil you can choose a vegetable butter, the resulting cream will be a little thicker and slightly greasier
  • tuberose wax can be used instead of jasmine wax
  • plain water can be totally or partially replaced with floral water
