DIY face cream for normal skin

Hello everyone, my beloved DIY green tea face cream has been over for a while now and I urgently need a new one. In this period, my skin face is not particularly dry so I decided to make a cream for normal skin. If you are curious to know how to formulate a cream click here. This new cream will be formulated using fewer ingredients and choosing the fragrance through an Instagram pool. In the latter, I asked which fragrance to use between vanilla and lavender and with 56% lavender won against vanilla.

The ingredients for 100g are:

Phase A

  • In a glass jar, weigh the Xanthan Gum and add glycerin. Mix the two ingredients with a teaspoon and leave it for a while.
  • Warm up the distilled water and, once it’s hot, pour into the glass jar containing Xanthan gum and glycerin, and mix them.

Phase B

  • In a second glass jar, weigh all the ingredients listed as Phase B such as oils, butters, and emulsifiers. Warm them up in a microwave or in a bain-marie till they are melted.

Phase A+B

  • Pour the phase B into A (both warmed).
  • Mix the two phases using a hand blender and let the cream cool down.

Phase C

Now your cream is ready to be used. I used an old container that I previously washed and labeling with cute adhesive tapes.

I also tried to use it as a night cream given the presence of the lavender fragrance. In fact, lavender has relaxing properties that also help against stress and insomnia.

      Hello, Nadia. Powder extracts should be introduced into the same phase in which they dissolve. If, for example, the extract you want to use dissolves in water, you can easily add it in phase A. If you bought the extract online, you should find this info among the ingredient characteristics. Otherwise, write to me here below which extract you want to use and I’ll give you my help 🙂
