Olivia Cream For Dry & Sensitive Skin
Olivia Cream For Dry & Sensitive Skin is chock full of ingredients to help soothe and heal dry skin. It contains no aromatic additives though you can certainly add those of your choice. Use this cream as a soothing night cream or in the morning to nourish your skin at the start of the day.
14 grams extra virgin olive oil
10 grams avocado oil
2 grams evening primrose oil
2 grams rose hips seed oil
8 grams emulsifying wax
2 grams stearic acid
30 grams distilled water
3 grams aloe vera gel
1 teaspoon borax
1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum
1. Combine the olive oil, avocado oil, emulsifying wax and stearic acid in a large heat proof (I use Pyrex) glass measuring cup with a pour spout. Place the mixture in a hot water bath until the waxes are completely melted. Remove from heat. Add the evening primrose oil and rose hips seed oil and stir well to incorporate.
2. Place the water, aloe vera gel, borax and xanthan gum in a separate Pyrex cup and warm for about 15 minutes in a hot water bath.
3. After stirring the oils/waxes together to make sure they are evenly combined, begin stirring the oil/wax mixture with an electric mixer on medium speed and add the water mixture as you stir. You will see the mixture begin to thicken as you blend it. Continue mixing until until Olivia Cream For Dry & Sensitive Skin is thick and rich. This should take about 5 minutes at most.
4. Pour warm Olivia Cream For Dry & Sensitive into clean jars and allow to cool before capping. (As always, you can include the preservative of your choice in this recipe.)
