|Many products that combat acne and other blemishes are very drying to the skin, which tends to make the problem worse. I wanted a light and moisturizing cream that would keep the skin soft and from feeling dry or stripped.I love the feel of Jojoba Oil but I learned a few things about it today. Jojoba Oil is actually a liquid wax. Jojoba Oil is really nice because it does not feel greasy like Olive Oil or Sweet Almond Oil. Instead, it feels dry not greasy and oily. Jojoba Oil is very similar to sebum, a wax secreted by the skin. This aids the skin is staying hydrated. Jojoba Oil can even act as a substitute for sebum. Wow! I never knew that. What a great addition to an acne combating moisturizing cream! Come join me in the kitchen for this light and moisturizing cream.

VN:R_U [1.9.22_1171]Tea Tree Moisturizing Cream,
I really would like to try this moisturizing cream but don’t have any wheat protein & not even sure I can get it here in Barbados. What can I use as a sub? thanks
I was thinking at the same :-). Maybe some Cymbidium grandiflorum extract in coconut fractions. this is what I would use for me 🙂
well I’m not altogether sure I can get Cymbidium grandiflorum extract in coconut fractions either. Is there a more regular or simpler substitute? I’m was getting very strange looks when asking for wheat protein I’m not sure I should chance the other!
I would try either Liquid Silk or one of the Extracts (Green Tea, Sea Buckthorn, Pumpkin, Ivy, Comfrey Leaves, Aloe, etc.) If you don’t have one of these items, then I would recommend increasing your water or Hydrovance.
I hope this helps.
I was wondering if I could use liquid germall plus instead of the optiphen, because that is what I have. Would it make any difference in the end cream? And would I just use the same 1 % amount?
thanks so much. I have aloe gel & comfrey leaves so I now start my mixing….
This is a very good recipe, thank you! I have made it 3 times and without fail. I added shea butter and primrose oil in addition to the jojoba and instead of wheat protein, I used silk and added some panthenol. It is fantastic and that hydrovance really does make a difference. Scents beautifully too.
