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

Add the phase A ingredients to a heat-resistant container and place it in a water bath until completely melted, stirring in the meantime.

The composition is removed from the heat source and immediately mixed for about 2 minutes. When the mixer can no longer cope, mix manually with a mini whisk or teaspoon. To accelerate the cooling process, place the composition over a bowl with cold water and continue the homogenization by hand for 3 more minutes. The composition will whiten and harden.

Over the phase A thus prepared, add the gentle washing base and surfactant from phase B and mix vigorously manually. The composition will liquefy. Now the xanthan is gradually sprinkled, while continuously stirring. After a few minutes the composition hardens and becomes creamy.

Then incorporate the ingredients of phase C, mixing after each one (allantoin is gradually sprinkled and mixed vigorously for uniform dispersion). The resulting cream is transferred to the dedicated container.

The cream does not contain oils therefore it is non-greasy. Varisoft, although used mainly for hair conditioning, is an emollient and softening ingredient for the skin, with which you can also obtain creamy compositions without an oily phase.

The cream is applied in circular movements of comfortable duration and intensity, after which the skin is rinsed abundantly with lukewarm water. It can also be used as a mask, and after 10-15 minutes it is washed off the skin with circular scrubbing movements. The skin will be free of dead cells and impurities, the skin will be hydrated and invigorated.
