Aromantic’s Base Cream for Oily Skin is light, gentle and easily absorbed. It is nourishing and kind to the skin, leaving the skin feeling soft, supple and hydrated but with no oily residue.
It is rich in Omega 6 & 9 (Oleic Acid & Linoleic Acid) which help to keep skin hydrated.
Antioxidants, helping to fight free radicals that can cause premature aging of the skin, are found in the Vitamin E.
It may be used daily, applied to any area of the face or body that would benefit from some gentle, nourishing skincare.
It is both palm free and vegan.
Although our new Base Cream for Oily Skin is a complete product which does not need anything added to it you may add up to 3% of oil soluble ingredients without compromising the integrity of the preservative system in the product. This can include up to 1% of your chosen essential oil blend or any of our fabulous oil soluble Active Ingredients, Carrier Oils & Botanical CO2 Extracts such as CoEnzyme Q10 plus E, Hazelnut Oil and Rosehip CO2 Extract.
Please see below for information on the CPSR (Cosmetic Product Safety Report) & PET (Preservative Efficacy Test) requirements if you do add anything to the base product.
The pH of this product, without any extra ingredients is pH 5-6, which is the optimum pH for a lotion.
Please check the final pH of your product after you have made any additions. This must fall between pH3-12 in order for the preservative to continue functioning fully.
If you are intending to resell this product without the addition of any extra ingredients please ensure you obtain a revised CPSR in your own name. You will need to contact Oxford BioSciences for this service for which there is a cost of approximately £40.
If you add any oil soluble ingredients to the Base Cream for Oily Skin you will need to obtain a new CPSR that includes your added ingredients. You will not need a new PET.
Please note: This is an arrangement that Aromantic has with Oxford BioSciences so if you choose to go to a different cosmetic assessor that arrangement will not stand and you will need both a new CPSR & PET.
If you choose to add water soluble ingredients (remember only up to 3%) or a combination of both oil soluble and water soluble Active Ingredients, Botanical Extracts or Carrier Oils you will need to obtain both a new CPSR and PET. This will be necessary as adding water soluble ingredients has the potential to upset the balance of the preservative system in this base cream and will apply regardless of which assessor you choose to use. If any water soluble added ingredients are acidic in nature be aware that they may cause separation of this cream and are likely to change the final pH of the product.
