Cream Conditioners


All of our cream conditioner recipes use Emulsifying Wax as it is a great emulsifier to use in hair products. For all the recipes below, follow the method for making creams using Emulsifying Wax:

Method:
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.
 
When the stage 1 is over 75°C, add the boiling water 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 large bowl (stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Only when everything is over 75°C, stir continually 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 ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.
