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

The ingredients of phases A and B are added to two separate heat-resistant containers.
Both containers are placed in a water bath, stirring from time to time.
When both phases have reached 70-75°C, remove from the water bath.

The two phases are combined as follows: phase B is poured slowly but in a single movement over phase A, while stirring with a mixer. Mix for 3 minutes, avoiding excessive aeration.
To accelerate the cooling process, place the composition in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.

The rest of the ingredients - phase C - are incorporated when the composition cooled to body temperature, with thorough mixing after each one. The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~ 6

A delicate and light cream, with a pleasant texture and a fresh, floral scent. It is a day cream formulated for mixed/oily skin, especially recommended for the cold season.


  • instead of jojoba oil, another oil suitable for mixed/oily skin can be used, such as: rice, watermelon, macadamia or kukui oil
  • cucumber extract can be used instead of glycerin
  • instead of tuberose wax, jasmine wax can be used; UPDATE: based on recent tests we can recommend cetearyl alcohol instead of tuberose wax (same amount)
  • instead of fragonia essential oil, which is suitable for acne-prone skin, you can use bergamot, lavender, rosemary, laurel essential oil; it can also be removed from the recipe
