Preparation method:
Phase A ingredients are added to a heat-resistant glass.
Add the ingredients from phase B to another heat-resistant beaker and mix very well.

Both glasses are placed in a water bath, stirring occasionally.
When both phases have reached a temperature of 75°C, remove from the heat.

Pour phase A over phase B and mix for 3 minutes.
Place the glass in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, continuing to mix for 3 more minutes.

When the composition has reached body temperature, the ingredients of phase C are added one by one, thoroughly mixing after each one. 
It is left to rest for approximately 10 minutes, then mix with the mixer for 1-2 minutes, until the texture of the cream becomes soft and homogeneous.
The deodorant thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~5
