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

Preparation method:
The ingredients from phase A are added to a heat-resistant beaker. Phase B ingredients are added to another heat-resistant beaker. Both beakers are placed in a water bath, stirring occasionally.
When both phases have reached 70°C, remove the containers from the heat.

Phase B is poured over phase A and mixed for 3 minutes. Place the beaker in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, continuing to stir for 3 more minutes.

When the composition has reached body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C, mixing thoroughly after each. 
The cream thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. 

A creamy but not greasy day cream, formulated with ingredients that help repair the skin's natural barrier, improve hydration levels and give a smooth, velvety complexion. It is suitable for normal, dry or dehydrated skin.
