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

Preparation method:

In two separate heat-resistant glasses, add the ingredients of phases A and B. For phase B, first mix the glycerin with the xanthan gum in the glass, and only after that add the rest of the ingredients from phase B.

The two glasses are heated in a water bath, to about 70°C, stirring occasionally. When both phases have reached the desired temperature, they are removed from the heat.

Add the contents of phase B over phase A and mix for about 3 minutes. To speed up the cooling process, place the composition over a bowl of cold water and mix for 3 more minutes.

Let the composition cool to body temperature and add the ingredients from phase C, one at a time, thoroughly mixing after each.
The cream thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. The consistency of the cream will be finalized the next day. pH: ~ 5.5

A complex formula that combines moisturizing, regenerating and emollient ingredients with anti-inflammatory active ingredients and vitamins. Having a non-greasy texture, it is suitable for normal, mixed or oily skin, it can be used for sensitive skin or for delicate hand care.

It is a cream that can be used by men as aftershave, day cream and hand cream, in fact, the recipe was formulated precisely for this reason, to be multi-purpose, pleasant to wear, with sensory benefits, but nourishing nonetheless.

Options and explanations:

  • the formula can also be adapted for dry skin, replacing jojoba oil with argan or almond oil, murumuru butter with a fatter butter such as shea/cocoa, rosemary water with neroli/melissa water, and instead rice powder, hyaluronic acid lmw/hmw will be added; if the skin is dehydrated, the percentage of glycerin can be increased to 5% by adjusting the percentage of water
  • instead of jojoba oil you can use another vegetable oil that is not sensitive to heat, chosen according to your skin type
  • the fragrane oil can be replaced with another one, chosen according to your preferences, you can also use an essential oil or aromatic extract; for an unscented cream it can be removed from the recipe by appropriately supplementing the percentage of flat water, or including a cosmetic active as needed
  • we do not recommend replacing emulsifiers; this formula was not tested with other emulsifiers
  • instead of cosgard you can use fragard, but you can't use grapefruit seed extract or dermosoft
