Today was fun, created my first really good moisturiser. Technically, it’s an emulsion but I’m not having my ‘baby’ likened to a product only good enough to slap on your walls. Just ‘no’.
Made with 100% natural items including the preservative to stop it developing ‘friends with no benefits’.
What’s in it?
Sweet almond oil
Distilled water (what the cosmetics companies refer to as ‘aqua’, sounds much more sexy that doesn’t it…)
Emulsifier – you need this (this is how the oil and water mix together)
Glycerine – a humectant (a moisture attracting ingredient)
A Gum – you need this (to make it thicken)
Essential oil – to give it a great scent etc
Preservative – to stop it going nasty
A good day all round.
