This thickens up a little more overnight. It leaves a beautiful silky feeling and could also be used as a hand or body cream. Truly top to toe!

Stage 1: (above 75°C)
7% Watermelon Seed Oil
3% Mango Butter
5% Emulsifying Wax


Stage 2: (above 75°C)
80% Boiling Spring Water
3% EcoChic Conditioning Agent


Stage 3: (below 40°C)
1% Preservative 12
1% Essential Oils of your choice

Total 100%

Method:

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