Creams & Lotions

A cream is an emulsion (a suspension of one liquid in another) of oil and water. In order to mix oil and water you will need an emulsifier - a medium that enables normally non-mixable ingredients to mix together. We have organised these recipes by the type of emulsifier it uses, as all those recipes will follow the same method. You can also click below to jump directly to the recipe.
 


Recipes using Vegetal & Emulsifier L

Method

Stage 1
Add the Vegetal to the stage 1 ingredients and heat in a double boiler until the temperature is over 75°C.

Stage 2
Add the boiling water to the glycerine in a large stainless steel bowl, place on the double boiler, and make sure the temperature stays over 75°C.

Pour the stage 1 mix into the stage 2 mix and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. The stick blender should be used at the bottom of the bowl only and should not be pumped up and down as this will introduce air into the emulsion. 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 requires 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.
 
Stage 3
When it is under 40°C, add any heat sensitive ingredients. The cream will thicken up as it cools down. Combine all ingredients thoroughly, jar and label.

Recipes using VE & MF emulsifiers

Method

Stage 1
Add the VE to the stage 1 ingredients and heat in a double boiler until the temperature is over 75°C.

Stage 2
Put the stage 2 ingredients in a large stainless steel bowl, place on the double boiler, and make sure the temperature stays over 75°C.

Pour the stage 1 mix into the stage 2 mix and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. The stick blender should be used at the bottom of the bowl only and should not be pumped up and down as this will introduce air into the emulsion. When you lift the stick blender out of the mixture, the mix running off the blender head should look like a thin cream.

Stage 3

Recipes using Emulsifying Wax

Method

Stage 1
Weigh all stage 1 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.

Stage 2
When the stage 1 is over 75°C, add the boiling spring water to a larger stainless steel bowl along with the glycerine/glycerol extract.

Swap the bowls over so the larger bowl is in the double boiler. Pour the stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into the large bowl (stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles.  Only when everything is over 75°C, stir continually for a further 5 minutes.

After 5 minutes of stirring, remove bowl from the double boiler and put into a pan of cold water to cool it down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.

Stage 3
When the cream is under 40°C add the remaining stage 3 ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.
