Olive Oil Cleansing Balm

To use, take some from the pot and warm between your fingertips and work into the face. This will remove even waterproof mascara. The secret is to take time to work the product in well so that all the grease and grime can dissolve. Then take a soft cloth (microfibre or muslin are both good) and gently wipe off. Do not scrub hard or drag the skin, gently wipe until all traces are removed.

Stage 1: (above 75°C)
14% Beeswax
26% Olive Oil
18% Meadowfoam Seed Oil
10% Castor Oil
10% Jojoba Oil

Stage 2: (below 40°C)
20% EcoSilk
1% Vitamin E
1% Essential Oils of your choice (20 drops)


Total 100%

Method:

Heat the stage 1 ingredients in a double boiler until just melted and then take off the heat. Start to cool down and when the temperature is below 40°C add the stage 2 ingredients. You need to work quickly to get everything combined together. Using a spatula to mix adds a little bit of heat friction to keep the mix looser. Jar and label quickly.
