Facial Cream 2
|Apparently, one face cream formulation wasn’t enough for me. I’ve happily formulated another face cream and I think you will enjoy it! This face cream is actually thicker than the previous face cream, and this would be more of a nightly face cream than a daily cream.
This time I chose Sesame Oil for the smooth and creamy feel that it contributes to lotions and creams. Sesame also is very rich in nutrients that our skin loves.
I chose Avocado Oil because it is the one oil that is loved by all skin types. This choice allows the face cream to be truly versatile and pamper all skin types.
I added just a little bit of High Melt Point Shea Butter to help give the cream body without using too much Stearic Acid that would make the cream waxy.
I also chose the Green Tea and Orchid Extracts because both extracts are well known for their skin soothing and protecting properties. As my goal was to make a night face cream, these extracts are perfect for such a use.
Recipe: 400 grams or 14.11 ounces
Weigh all ingredients except the additives (extracts, Liquid Germall Plus, Vitamin E Natural, and Esme Fragrance) into the microwave safe container. Heat in the microwave using short time bursts until everything is melted. Blend the ingredients to a smooth, creamy consistency using the immersion blender. Add additives once the temperature drops to 120 F in the mixing bucket. Blend until completely mixed. Pour into jars and allow to cool completely before capping.
Yield: This recipe will make 16 ounces.
