  • Method:
    Put stage 1 ingredients into a small bowl in a bain marie. When they are above 75 °C, weigh boiling rose hydrolat into a larger bowl, add the xanthan gum and stick blend until smooth. Then put into the bain marie.
  • Pour the fat stage into the water stage and stir to combine with a spatula first. Then start to stick blend. After a minute or so, look at the cowl of the stick blender (it covers the blade) and see what the mix looks like. If it is granular and separating, stick blend a little longer. When the cream looks smooth and like a runny single cream, stop stick blending and take it off the heat.
  • Stir with a spatula until it cools. This cannot be accelerated, so do not put it in a pan of cold water. When it is under 40 °C, add the preservative and mix thoroughly. Put into jars, label, and date.

Thank you for your enquiry.

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

“It is possible that the added Vitamin C could cause the formula to separate as you will be adding an extra acidic ingredient, although the total would still be 10%.

We think it should work fine but you will need to check the final pH of the cream as Hyaluronic Acid Gel can lower the pH of a product. Vitamin C needs a pH of 6.5-7 to be most effective but the Hyaluronic Acid Gel may cause the pH to be lower than that.

If you find the pH has dropped below 6.5-7 you can increase it by making a 10% solution of sodium bicarbonate and cooled boiled water and adding a few drops of this then checking the pH again until it reaches a level more suitable for the Vitamin C to work well.

You can mix the Vitamin C powder with the stage 3 ingredients before adding it to the combined stages 1 &2.

Please do let us know how you get on if you try this out."

Hi there,
thank you for this formula. I was wondering if it is possible to add your stabilised vitamin C to this formula? I was hoping to use 5% hyaluronic acid and 5% vit c.
I wondered if this would inhibit the stability of the emulsion. Many thanks

Thank you for your enquiry.

“The answer for that is on the website. Take a look at the details for the Hyaluronic Acid Powder and you will see the formulation for the Hyaluronic Acid Gel. It explains that if you are adding 1% of the finished gel to a product, you are, in effect, adding 0.001% of the powder.
The Plumping Face Cream used 10% of the Gel, so you need to multiply the above by a factor of 10 to get the same result. That would be 0.01% of the powder. You would need to take a little of the Rose Hydrolat out of the Stage 2 first to dissolve the powder, and then use it in Stage 3 as usual. You also need to adjust the numbers on the formulation to balance at 100%, so make up the difference with extra Rose Hydrolat.
Now you know how to make the hyaluronic acid content stronger as well, if you wanted that.”

“Take it out of the rose hydrolat. If the essential oil you want to use does not compliment the rose hydrolat, you can replace that with boiling distilled water altogether.”

“That really depends on how much Titanium Dioxide is added and for what purpose. A little will only give the cream a more white appearance whereas enough to have any sun protection benefits may not combine well and leave the cream feeling a little gritty.”

Would the addition of titanium work in this formula?

“Although we don’t stock Alpha Arbutin or Kojic Acid it would be best to add them in the cool down stage at below 40C. Why not consult the suppliers of these ingredients for further information.

Best before dates will be whatever your preservative gives."

Hi, at what temperature can the mixture be if one wants to add a lightening ingredient like Alpha Arbutin, kojic acid, Vitamin C or B etc?
And for dating, how long would you say it could last for with or without the lighteners?

Thanks
