Preparation method:
In a heat-resistant beaker add and mix the ingredients of phase A.
In another heat-resistant glass, add the water from phase B, sprinkle with xanthan gum, mix vigorously and leave to rest for approximately 10 minutes. The rest of the phase B ingredients are then added to the formed gel.

Both glasses are placed in a water bath, stirring each phase from time to time.
When both have reached a temperature of 70-75°C, remove containers from the heat.

Pour phase B over phase A slowly, in single motion, while mixing. Continue to mix the composition for 3 minutes.
Without interrupting the mixing, place the beaker in a bowl of cold water to accelerate the cooling process, and continue to mix for 3 more minutes.

When the composition has reached body temperature, the ingredients of phase C are added one by one, thoroughly mixing after each one.
The cream thus obtained is transferred to the dedicated container. The viscosity of the cream will increase slightly the next day and will be finalized in the next 2-3 days. pH: ~ 6-6.5
