Emollient shaving gel, Amyris

Formula: 11381

Phase Ingredients for ~ 100 ml Quantity
A hemp oil 74 ml  (69 gr)
A emulsifier Alfa 25 ml (27,5 gr)
B vitamin E 10 drops
B vanilla extract or styrax resinoid 12 drops
B amyris essential oil 15 drops

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

Preparation method:
Combine the hemp oil with the emulsifier, in a similar way as when making a mayonnaise: transfer the emulsifier to a bowl and mix for approximately 20 seconds with a mini whisk. Then add 4-5 drops of hemp oil over the gel and mix vigorously until the gel becomes whitish and begins to harden. Gradually add the rest of the oil in small quantities, meanwhile stirring constantly; the gel hardens and in no case liquefies! The procedure can take 5-7 minutes.

In addition to the gel thus prepared, add the ingredients from phase B, mixing after each one.
The result is a gel that will soon become translucent and have a stable consistency. 

Application: apply a layer of gel to dry skin with dry fingers. Wet your fingers and massage the area with circular movements; the gel will turn into a lotion with a very pleasant, slippery texture, which will facilitate the sliding of the blade. After shaving, rinse the skin with lukewarm water. The gel does not leave a greasy layer on the skin, it remains hydrated and smooth.
