Method:
  • Melt Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients in a double boiler.
  • Combine the Konjac Glucomannan Powder with the Wu Zhu Extract and Glycerol to make a paste. Then add to the freshly boiled spring water and whisk in a double boiler on the heat until fully dissolved.
  • Then add Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients to Stage 2 (water stage). Stir together with a spoon or spatula until you see they are fully mixed in. Then stick blend briefly until emulsification has occurred (this should only take about 30m seconds). Remove from the heat and stir slowly with a spatula whilst cooling naturally. Do not stick blend or accelerate the cooling during this stage.
  • Combine Stage 3 (heat sensitive) materials and, when the emulsion is below 40°C, add to the cream. Stir thoroughly, jar and label.

The vegetable oils chosen were selected for their light feeling on the skin. You can experiment on changing the oils, but bear in mind that an oil like Macadamia, as an example, will use up more of the emulsifier’s ability to hold the emulsion together, so could be more prone to separation.

Herbal Infusion definitely are a risk to an emulsion splitting, and you need a strong emulsion in the first place. Every different herb used gives a different potential for problems, so we cannot give a list of them.

With herbal infusion, you also need to increase the preservative level to 1.1% and keep the total at 100%.

With so many changes you have planned, it would be impossible to know which change caused the difficulty if is does split. I suggest trying small samples and make only one change at a time to see how it goes. It’s all part of the learning curve!

I’d like to make a palm free face cream using your emulsifier. Can i replace the oils with oils of my choice?
I’d also like to use a herbal water infusion, will that destabilise the cream? What % of the cream should be the 
emulsifier?
