You will need

  • Distilled water
  • Thickeners (cetyl alcohol, guar gum, Simulgel 600, etc.)

Cream texture
Make homemade cream can be based on the usual cream, cream or gelatin. Such homemade cream will certainly be useful, but it will never be the texture of industrial cream. Therefore, not every modern woman will put aside the easy-to-use cream from the store and begin to prepare the cream according to grandma's recipes.
As a consequence, the manufacture of cosmetic cream, which in no way will be inferior to industrial cosmetic product, you need to make from components similar to those used in the manufacture of industrial cream.Only instead of synthetic ingredients in homemade cream making use of natural and healthy ingredients.
Oil and water
In a simplified version, any cream consists of two phases: oil and water, which are combined into one with the help of an emulsifier. Industrial cream is prepared on the basis of mineral oils and silicones, which form a film on the surface of the skin and thereby smooth it. At the same time, the synthetic components of cosmetics are not able to penetrate deep into the skin, therefore, we should expect only a temporary external effect from them.
Homemade cream also consists of an oil and water phase, but the oil phase is made up of valuable vegetable oils that enrich the skin with essential nutrients. Therefore, with the help of homemade cream, you can solve almost any skin problems, and not “gloss over” them, as happens when using industrial cosmetics. It is enough to choose a cosmetic and essential oil with the necessary properties. Distilled and mineral water or plant hydrolates can be used as the aqueous phase.
Cosmetic oils and purified water is not enough: to make a cream at home, you need an emulsifier that combines fats and water. As an emulsifier, you can use natural beeswax or special emulsifiers for making homemade creams. One of the most popular and easy-to-use emulsifiers is Polawax emulsion wax. This emulsifier is usually recommended for the first experiments in the preparation of homemade creams.
Other ingredients of the cream
The remaining ingredients are added as desired, it all depends on what properties you want to give the cream. So, in addition to one main emulsifier in the formulation of homemade creams, it is desirable to introduce co-emulsifiers or thickeners. For example, cetyl alcohol or guar gum. These supplements are absolutely safe for health, and in addition to stabilizing the texture of the cream also have a moisturizing effect on the skin. In addition, in the manufacture of creams can and even need to use essential oils, liposoluble vitamins, herbal extracts and moisturizing ingredients.
To get all the ingredients for homemade cream is best in specialized online stores, which today are quite a lot. Of course, you can buy something in the pharmacy, for example, fat-soluble vitamins A and E. But cosmetic oils of good quality, both essential and vegetable, are extremely rare in pharmacies.
If you decide to make a cream at home, start by making some simple cream, and then enrich its recipe in accordance with the needs of your skin.
A simple step by step recipe for making homemade cream homemade for normal skin on beeswax:
a. Melt in a water bath 5 grams of cocoa butter and 5 grams of shea butter (shea). Melt 5 grams of beeswax in a separate bowl.
b. While the solid oils and wax are melting, pour 20 ml of jojoba oil and 20 ml of sesame oil into one cup and 40 ml of distilled water into another cup. Heat both cups in a water bath, but not much. Water and liquid oils should become slightly hotter than body temperature.
from. Gradually add a small amount of heated liquid oils to the melted wax and mix everything thoroughly. Then add heated water to the mixture.Continue stirring the mixture until it thickens. At the end, add 10 drops of lavender essential oil to the cream and mix everything thoroughly again.
