But first the simple scientific principle involved in making skin care creams. All good creams start with what is called the oil phase, or a combination of oils like sunflower oil, wheat germ oil, olive oil, canola oil, etc. Try to stick with oils which are commonly eaten or used in cooking. The skin is tough but at the same time tender, so stick with known useful but harmless oils, preferably cold pressed. The oil phase is usually 25% or even less of the total finished product. Then an aqueous solution is added, like water, herbal extracts, Aloe Vera, etc. The water phase is about 75% or even more of the total finished product. Then a white flaky or granular wax, called an emulsifying wax, is heated gently until it melts to liquid form, and then mixed with the oil phase and the water phase to hold them all together. Once they are all together in a bowl or mixer they are cooled while stirring to form a luxurious cream.

Cooking an omelette would have a greater degree of difficulty.

Perfumes or sweet smelling essential oils like Ylang Ylang, Mimosa, Hibiscus, or any of the beautiful oils now readily on sale, can be added early in the cooling stage to enhance and compliment the luxurious smell and feel of your natural cream. These products, once hard to get, are now quite cheap and readily available courtesy of the internet.
