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

Preparation method:
In a heat-resistant glass add and mix the ingredients of phase A. In another heat-resistant glass add the ingredients of phase B: first the water, then the vitamin C and mix well, then sprinkle with xanthan gum, mix vigorously and let the composition rest for approximately ten minutes.

Both glasses are placed in a water bath, stirring each phase from time to time.
When both phases have reached a temperature of 70-75°C, remove from the heat.

Pour phase B over phase A slowly, in a single motion, while mixing continuously. Mix for 3 minutes.
Without interrupting the mixing, place the beaker in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.

When the composition has reached body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C, one at a time, thoroughly mixing after each one. If the royal jelly powder is coarse, grind it in a bowl/saucer with the back of a teaspoon.
The cream thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. The viscosity of the cream will increase slightly the next day and will be finalized in the next 2-3 days. pH: ~ 6

A cream with a very pleasant and light texture, suitable for normal, mixed or oily skin, which contains nourishing, anti-aging and rejuvenating ingredients. With a subtle scent of roses and vanilla, the cream moisturizes, cares for and pampers the skin.
