Method:
  • Put Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients into a small bowl in a bain marie / double boiler to heat to above 75°C.
  • Meanwhile, combine the Stage 2 (water stage) Glycerin and Konjac Glucomannan Powder together to make a paste, then pour the heated water over the paste. Use a stick blender to make a smooth, thin gel. Do not pump the stick blender up and down.
  • Add the Stage 1 oils to the Stage 2 gel and stir thoroughly with a spatula.
  • Stick blend briefly, then look at the cowl of the stick blender. If you can see particles, you need to stick blend more. Check again and you will see a smooth thin cream on the cowl. Ignore small bubbles or foam. The whole emulsification process takes about 30 seconds so do not over blend or aerate this.
  • As soon as it is emulsified, allow it to cool down whilst stirring with a spatula continuously. Do not accelerate the cooling and avoid beating air into the cream.
  • When it is under 40°C, add the Stage 3 (heat sensitive) ingredients and mix thoroughly. Put into jars and label.

CAN I ADD SQUALENE IN IT TO MAKE it even more spreadable and offer more flexibility to the skin. Thinking of using 9% Camellia, 4 % Argan oil and add 5% squalene in stage one. What is your advice?

“You can substitute Konjac Glucomannan Powder with Xanthan Gum but you will need to use it at a different percentage. Try 0.5% and subtract 0.25% from the water to compensate and keep the total to 100%.

Rice Starch needs to be made into a gel before it could be added to a cream for any thickening properties so in this case it is not appropriate."

Hi!
Can the kunjac glucomannan powder be substituted by xantham gum or rice starch?
Kind regards
