Homemade recipe for hand cream with sesame oil and mango butter
Noting the tidal wave caused by all these workshops DIY (Do It Yourself “do it yourself“) that are popping up everywhere, writing Women in Plural wanted, too, test it for you (but curiosity as much), one of them. So we enrolled in a workshop held by Naturi cosmetic–Ebony, and dedicated to making a hand cream to oil-based Sesame and mango butter for all skin types. In 1:30, we carefully weighed, mixed, heated in a water bath, whipped the different ingredients, while listening to the trainers instructions carefully. We therefore report the grail you, our personal to strictly follow recipe !
Ingredients 100g cream
Preparation time: about 30 minutes.
- 48.3 g of water
- 6g glycerin
- 20g aloe vera
- 0.2 g guar gum (helps thicken the cream)
- 7g sesame oil
- 4g mango butter
- 6g cetearyl glucoside (emulsifier that helps blend the first 2 phases)
- 3g of cetyl alcohol (emulsifier)
3 th stage
- 3g bamboo extract
- 1 g of essential oil (ET) Small Seville orange
- 1g HE palmarosa
- 0.3 g of potassium sorbate (preservative)
- 0.2g benzoate (preservative)
Start by mixing all components of the aqueous phase in a bowl, and so in a second bowl, to the oil phase. Melt them in a double boiler. Stir gently with a spoon the aqueous phase after heating, then add the oil solution. Beat about 10 minutes the mixture with a whisk by performing 8 to reach all sides. Once the cream begins to thicken, add bamboo extract, the two essential oils, and potassium sorbate and benzoate. Whisk a little longer. Your cream is ready!
Store it in a dry pot and cleansed. For clean, do not hesitate to bring a small spatula when you want to use the cream, or else clean your hand before use. This avoids the risk of contact between the microbes and cream.
If you want to use on the face, test it first in the crook of your elbow for 48 hours to avoid any risk of allergy. If after 48 hours, there is no change, the cream can go on your face.
