Right Out of the Shower Emollient Cream

Many of us enjoy keeping our skin soft and hydrated. This cream has a light waxy feeling after rubbing it in, but it truly helps skin retain moisture. I think this cream would be perfect after a shower. What do you think?

The objective of this cream was to use beeswax from the local beekeeper to make a nice cream. I’m sending samples in orders. Send in your comments and we will revisit to tweak this recipe to your liking.

Collect needed supplies:
Coconut Oil Fractions
Conditioning Emulsifying Wax
Fragrance Oil of your choice (I’m using Freesia Fragrance Oil)
Germaben II
Transfer Pipettes
Microwave Safe Container
Immersion Blender
Containers for the finished lotion

Recipe in grams:
1 gram Beeswax
1 gram Allantoin
3 gram Hydrovance
2 gram Dimethicone
10 gram Coconut Oil Fractions
4 gram Conditioning Emulsifying Wax
77 gram Water
1 gram Freesia Fragrance Oil
1 gram Germaben II

Weigh all ingredients except Germaben II and Freesia Fragrance Oil into the microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend using the immersion blender. Add Germaben II and Freesia Fragrance Oil once the temperature drops below 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Blend until completely mixed. I like to add the color at this point to help me determine if I have mixed all of the ingredients together. Pour the mixed cream into the containers.

  1. This looks to be another winner, Andee! My dry heels are perking up in anticipation. LOL Can I sub honey for the Hydrovance?

    1. Zany,
      You could, but the results will be a bit different. I would suspect the honey may attract bees and wasps. It doesn’t take much to get their attention. I would prefer the honey in a wash off product at this time of year.

  2. I’d really like to see more recipes using your Conditioning Emulsifying Wax, instead of ewax and stearic acid ;o)

    I’ve been working on a hair conditioner formula for over a year now – just can’t get it right for some reason…

    I’m going to try this recipe and let you know my thoughts!
