Method:
  • Heat Stage 1 (fat stage) in a stainless steel bowl on a double boiler until the temperature is above 75°C.
  • Add Stage 2 (water stage) ingredients into another stainless steel bowl in a double boiler until the temperature is above 75°C.
  • Pour Stage 1 into Stage 2 and use a stick blender (high shear) to emulsify the two stages. This will happen in about 20 seconds so keep checking. Ensure the temperature is above 75°C. When you lift the stick blender out of the mixture, the mix running off the blender head should look like a thin cream. If it looks granular or like it is separating, it needs more high shear blending.
  • When it has emulsified, take it out of the double boiler and use a spatula to stir it whilst it is cooling down. You can use a cold water bath to speed up the cooling. Do not continue to use the stick blender as this will destroy the liquid crystal structure that the emulsification has formed.
  • When it is under 40°C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients. Combine thoroughly, jar and label.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Please see the below response from our Research and Development Team;

“Yes, that would be fine but do be aware that Preservative Eco has an odour that can show through in a cream. To overcome this we find that adding the preservative before the other Stage 3 ingredients masks the odour of the preservative.”

Hi, I was just wondering if I could use Preservative Eco with this and would it be the same percentage? Thanks, Becca :)
