Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature over 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is over 75°C, weigh and add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients together in a separate larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so that the larger bowl is in the double boiler. Pour the Stage 1 ingredients into the larger bowl (Stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles.
  • Make sure the temperature is over 75°C and continue to stir for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, remove the bowl from the double boiler and put it into a pan of cold water to cool down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the cream is under 40°C, add the remaining Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“I’m sorry, but I can’t actually remember the finished pH of the cream cleanser, and the person with those notes in on annual leave at the moment. I do remember, though, when we created it, we did test the pH to ensure it was safe for the skin.
We always test things just that bit further, so you ask whether you can leave it on or is it quick rinse off. I remember putting it on my face whilst in the bathroom one day, cleaning my teeth, then got distracted by something else downstairs before getting in the shower to rinse it off 15 minutes later. My colleague, who has much more sensitive skin than me, worked it in for a couple of minutes and then rinsed it off. She had no adverse reaction at all.
You certainly don’t need to scrub it in, it works gently on its own. For yourself, try a small patch test first to see how well you react.”

Hello dear Aromantic Team,

I like how this formulation sounds and I am tempted to make it.

However, I need your help, please. I have two questions about this cleanser:
1. What is the pH of this cleanser?
2. How does one use it? Does one have to leave it on the skin a few minutes
or just gently rub it into the skin then rinse it off?

Sorry, I’m not a professional, making skin care is just a hobby I really, really like so
as this is not my first question to you, most probably isn’t going to be the last one :)

All my appreciation for your work.
Ileana
