Once both phases have reached the right temperature, remove the containers from the water bath.

The contents of phase A are added slowly over phase B, stirring in the meantime. Continue to mix for 3 minutes, avoiding aeration of the emulsion as much as possible. 
Sprinkle the xanthan gum over the composition and mix for about 1 minute. Place the glass in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for another 3 minutes.

Let the composition cool to body temperature, and incorporate the ingredients from phase D, one at a time, thoroughly mixing after each one.
