2g Essential Oil or Fragrance Oil (optional)


Phase A: Mix water and Phenoxyethanol EHG together in a suitable saucepan add the Durosoft and mix thoroughly.

Phase B: In a separate jug or bowl add the sunflower oil, sprinkle the Xanthan gum on top and leave to sink in for a few minutes. Mix thoroughly until there are no lumps. Then add the second Durosoft and thoroughly mix again.

Add Phase B to Phase A and stir, then heat the lotion to 70°C

Phase C: Heat Cetearyl Alcohol in a separate saucepan to 70°C

Add Phase C to Phase AB

Stir until cool and mixed thoroughly, the cream will thicken as it cools. Add fragrance and mix until dispersed.

Pour into suitable container.

NOTE: This recipe produces a pleasantly light cream. Should you want a more viscous cream a thicker base could be achieved by discounting some of the water.
