Stage 1: (above 75°C)
8% Apricot Kernel Oil
5% Black Seed Oil
4% Vegetal
3% Avocado Oil

Stage 2: (above 75°C)
70% Boiling Spring Water
2% Glycerine

Stage 3: (below 40°C)
2% Vitamin E
2% Q10 plus E
2% Wu Zhu Extract
1% Eco Marine Algae Extract
1% Preservative 12

Total 100%

Heat Stage 1 (fat stage) in a stainless steel bowl on a double boiler until the temperature is above 75°C. Add Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients into a stainless steel bowl in a double boiler until the temperature is above 75°C.

Pour Stage 1 into Stage 2 and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. This will happen in just a few seconds so keep checking. Ensure the temperature is above 75°C. When you lift the stick blender out of the mixture, the mix running off the blender head should look like a thin cream. If it looks granular or like it is separating, it needs more high shear blending.

When it has emulsified, take it out of the double boiler and use a spatula to stir it whilst it is cooling down. You can use a cold water bath to speed up the cooling. Do not continue to use the stick blender as this will destroy the liquid crystal structure that the emulsification has formed.

When it is under 40°C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.

Cream smells fabulous, absorbs immediately and leaves a bright skin full of nutrients. Modified it a bit with some exotic oils and used 5% appricot instead of 8% (+camelia, sea buckthorn, pomegrenate, geranium.) . Also sumsituted black seed oil for evening primrose oil as i did not have black seed oil. Well done Aromatic…THANK YOU.
