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

Preparation method:
In a Berzelius beaker, mix the water and glycerin from phase A, sprinkle with xanthan gum and mix well. Leave to rest for about 10 minutes until the gel forms. The gentle washing base is then added to the gel.
Add the ingredients of phase B to another Berzelius beaker.

Place the glasses in a water bath and heat until both reach a temperature of 70°C, stirring occasionally. Once they have reached the right temperature, they are removed from the water bath.

Phase A is added slowly over phase B, stirring the composition vigorously. Stir for 3 minutes, avoiding excessive aeration and foaming along the way. To speed up the cooling process, place the beaker in a bowl of cold water and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.

To the composition cooled to body temperature, add the Cocamidopropyl betaine powder, mix slowly, thoroughly and let it rest for about 10 minutes (if there are small lumps of surfactant left, they will dissolve after the next step). Add the fragrance oil and preservative, mixing after each. The preparation is transferred to the dedicated container, the consistency will be finalized in the following days.

The result is a slightly frothy cream, rich in moisturizing, emollient and soothing ingredients, suitable for hair removal with a blade. Apply an appropriate amount on damp skin and distribute in circular motions. After shaving, rinse the skin with lukewarm water. The skin will be velvety, smooth and hydrated.
