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

Preparation method:

In a heat-resistant glass add the ingredients of phase A. In another heat-resistant glass add the ingredients from phase B. Both glasses 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.

Pour phase A slowly, in a single motion, over phase B (attention, not the other way around in this recipe!), while already mixing the phase B composition. Mix for 3 minutes.
Place the glass in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, continuing to mix for 3 more minutes. If the mixer can no longer cope, continue the homogenization manually, vigorously.

Marigold extract must be fluidized beforehand either by placing the bottle in a bowl of warm water or by melting the exact amount in a small bowl in a water bath.
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. The consistency of the cream will be finalized the next day. pH: ~6

Formulated with antioxidant, anti-aging, anti-radical, regenerating and repairing active ingredients, it is a rich cream that feels very pleasant on the skin, non-greasy, with a subtle scent. It is also suitable for sensitive skin, irritated or affected by redness. It absorbs well, leaves the skin velvety, smooth and with a feeling of comfort.

Options and explanations:

  • neroli water can be used instead of rose water, which also contributes to the fragrance of the cream
