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

Preparation method:
Phase A preparation: In a heat-resistant glass add the titanium paste, the pigments and a few drops of jojoba oil and mix until a paste of homogeneous color and texture is obtained. Gradually add the rest of the jojoba oil, stirring constantly. Then add the emulsifier.

Phase B water is placed in another heat-resistant glass.
The two phases - A and B - are placed in a water bath, heated to 70°C, meanwhile phase A is stirred. When the desired temperature is reached, remove from the heat.

Add phase B over phase A, slowly but in a single motion - the mixer is already working in phase A - and mix for about 3 minutes. If the mixer no longer copes, continue stirring manually, vigorously.

To speed up the cooling process, place the glass over a bowl of cold water and continue stirring for approximately 3 more minutes.
To the composition cooled to body temperature, add the ingredients from phase C one at a time, mixing after each.
The foundation thus prepared is transferred to the dedicated container.  pH: ~6

A light cream foundation, suitable for normal, mixed or even slightly oily skin. It has medium coverage.The color is medium with a warm undertone. For a neutral subtone, instead of the red pigment, use brown 23 oxide. For a cold subtone, use 0.4% brown 23 oxide plus 0.8% yellow 09 oxide; pink 10 oxide can also be used. A lighter color can be obtained by the proportionally decreasing the pigments, a darker color by proportionally increasing the pigments.

Options and explanations:

  • geranium essential oil can be replaced with another essential oil, chosen according to preferences and properties, or it can be replaced with a natural cosmetic fragrance oil; if an unscented foundation is desired then it can be removed from the recipe by adjusting the percentage of phase B water accordingly
  • titanium paste facilitates the uniform dispersion of pigments, has coating power and ensures a homogeneous texture to the composition; we do not recommend replacing it with another ingredient in this recipe
  • instead of cosgard, fragard can be used (same amount)
  • instead of jojoba oil, caprilis oil or another skin-type appropriate oil may be used
