Artemisia Moon Cream

Artemisia Moon Cream is based on our natural emulsification and conditioning system that includes Sodium Behenyl Lactylate (SBL), Behenyl Alcohol, Stearic Acid and VenaSilk. We have combined our natural emulsification system with Shea Butter, Meadowfoam Oil, Abyssinian Oil and our Botanical Complex LSC for optimum skin softening, conditioning and moisturization. Artemisia Hydrosol is utilized as the entire water phase in this formulation and lends its aromatic and spiritual qualities to this lovely cream. Clary Sage essential oil and Artemisia Hydrosol combine well in this balancing and rejuvenating cream.

  • Other Hydrosols and Essential Oils can be used if desired.
  • Other Vegetable Oils if desired. Shea Butter can be replaced with other butters, such as NatraButter, if desired.
  • Optiphen can be added to the water phase, but may disrupt the formulation. We have better success when adding it to the cool-down phase.
  • High shear mixers such as a stick-blender can be used to create a thicker cream. Our Mini-mixer can be used for tiny batches of 250g or less. Propeller mixers or beaters or a hand-held whisk can be used to created a thinner cream.
