A vegetable based Natural Emulsifier from Stearic and Palmitic Acid (Aromantic's Base Emulsifier) and Cetyl Alcohol. Makes easy light and good creams. Makes great creams. Use 7% in the fat stage or use 7 grams in a recipe of 100 ml of cream.
Kolbjorn at Aromantic has created some very simple recipes that you can easily follow. We have also mixed together our Base Emulsifier and Cetyl Alcohol and thereby created a very natural emulsifying wax for you. You possibly don't know but a lot of the emulsifying waxes on the market are coming from mineral oils and that is very bad for the skin as it can clog the pores etc.
You can make these creams without preservatives, but they will only keep for up to 1 week if kept in the fridge.
These creams can be made without using the antioxidant Vitamin E Oil (100%) and they will keep for 7-8 months at room temperature. Otherwise, they will keep for 1.5-2 years. Beware that diluted Vitamin E Oil is sold in the market; however, these recipes are based on using 100% concentrated Vitamin E Oil Simulated Natural from Aromantic.
The creams can be made without using Essential Oils and this will not affect the shelf life.
You can use your own kitchen equipment like a pyrex jug etc, but it is advisable to get a thermometer.

Method for making simple Creams using Emulsifying Wax:
Heat the Fat Stage ingredients in a double boiler until all of the ingredients have melted and the temperature has risen to 75 - 80°C. There is no need to use a whisk at this stage.
After boiling the Spring Water in a Kettle, measure it according to the Recipe and pour it over the Moisturiser, which you have put into a separate double boiler. Then allow the mixture to heat to 75 - 80°C.
When both Fat and Water Stages are over 75°C, remove both double boilers from the hob, keeping the Water Stage mixture hot by leaving it on the top half of the double boiler.
Now pour the melted Water Stage into the Fat Stage in a thin, steady stream, while continuously whisking the mixture from side to side for 5 minutes.
Allow the mixture to cool, stirring all the time. You can speed up the cooling process by replacing the hot water in the double boiler with very COLD water. In the process of cooling down, the mixture becomes a Cream and will reach its thickest consistency when it is has cooled down to room temperature.
Stir in the Third Stage ingredients when the mixture has cooled to under 40°C.
Continue stirring until the mixture has cooled to under 30°C
Then thoroughly mix in the Essential Oils.
Pour the Cream into one big jar or smaller jars and label.
Pamper yourself, your family and your friends.
If you feel that the cream is too thick then add cold spring water a little bit at a time until you get the right consistency.
You can also make a body lotion out of the creams by adding cold spring water little by little until you get the lotion consistency you like, but then you need to add 1 drop of Preservative 12 for each 10ml of water you add.
