Emulsions made easy! Simple actually, oil, water and small amount of wax! The trick is to get them all to hang together without separating into a gooey mess.
To cosmetic scientists, this is not a ‘true’ emulsion, a case in which we need to begin to define words like true! In the kitchen, is mayonnaise an emulsion? Yup, so it follows that our creams are emulsions too. For those of you who purchase your skin care and aren’t interested in getting into the weeds of making it, this is only to reassure you that our creams are made with the best, most wholesome and pure ingredients possible to use on your skin.
You actually tell me this all the time in e-mails and in reviews on the site; thank you for letting me know. It helps me remember that it is your skin that matters, not the definition of ‘true.’ Being more cook than scientist I’m happy in my role as Chief Cosmetic Chef, and I will continue to make the wonderful creams for face and body as we always have; straight from Nature.
The ingredients that offer the superb results in our creams are the choice of oils – of which I’ve made a specialty. The range, properties, and qualities that address nearly every skin condition are pure joy. Mix those with pure plant hydrosols, herbal extracts and beneficial aloe and your skin couldn’t ask for anything more. Except of course, a healthy diet and good night’s sleep.
If creams are too much sometimes, try our Body Crema, an oil based lotion with different percentages of the same wonderful ingredients. You could call it a creamy body oil or an oil based lotion, up to you but, the oils will nourish and protect your skin allowing its true natural health to shine through. We’ve got you covered, with beautiful oils!
