Preparation method:

Phase A ingredients are added to a heat-resistant beaker. Phase B ingredients are added to another beaker. Both beakers are placed in a water bath, stirring each phase from time to time.
When both phases have reached a temperature of 70°C, remove from the heat.

While already mixing phase B, pour phase A over phase B, slowly but in a single motion (attention, not the other way around in this recipe!). Mix for 3 minutes.
Place the glass in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, and continue to mix for 3 more minutes. If the mixer no longer copes, the homogenization is continued manually.

When the composition has reached body temperature, add the ingredients of phase C, one by one, thoroughly mixing after each one. 
The cream thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. pH: ~ 5.5
