Method:
  • Weigh all Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small stainless steel bowl and place into a saucepan of boiling water (double boiler/bain marie). Bring up to a temperature above 75°C.
  • When the Stage 1 is above 75°C, weigh and add the Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients together in a separate larger stainless steel bowl. Swap the bowls over so that the larger bowl is in the double boiler.
  • Pour the Stage 1 ingredients into the larger bowl (Stage 2) and stir gently without creating air bubbles. Make sure the temperature stays above 75°C and continue to stir for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, remove the bowl from the double boiler and put it into a pan of cold water to cool down quickly. Keep stirring all the time.
  • When the cream or lotion is under 40°C, add the remaining Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label. This cream can appear quite runny when it's just made, but it will thicken up overnight.
