Formula: 07003

Phase Ingredients for ~100 ml Quantity
A shea butter 60 ml (56 gr)
A coconut oil 18 ml (16,8 gr)
B avocado oil 20 ml (18,6 gr)
B lemongrass essential oil 45 drops

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

Preparation method:
In a heat-resistant glass, melt the shea butter and coconut oil from phase A in a water bath. Remove from the heat and place in the freezer until it begins to harden.

Add the ingredients from phase B and mix well. If the preparation is still fluid, put it back in the freezer for a short time, then mix it vigorously to obtain a texture that is as light and fine as possible. The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container.

A cream rich in nutritious and emollient ingredients, with a pleasant scent. The citrus notes give way after a while to a subtle milky-powdery scent that sits nicely on the skin. Apply a moderate amount on freshly sanitized and preferably slightly damp skin to promote absorption.
