  • In Part A, heat *Herbarie Hydrosols to 175F.
  • In Part B, weigh and set aside VenaSilk. Combine remainder Part B ingredients and heat to 175F. Remove from heat and disperse VenaSilk into the melted, hot oil phase.
  • Add Part A to Part B and begin mixing. Overhead mixer or hand-held stick blender works well. As emulsion forms and begins to thicken and cool, switch to paddle attachment or hand-held whip or other stir tool. Continue to stir until cooldown.
  • Cool to 100F. In Part D premix Avena Oat Extract WS, Leucidal Liquid SF and MicroGuard. Add to the emulsion with mixing. Add Sensique Asian Lily and continue to mix well.
  • When emulsion is cool, scoop into quart or gallon size freezer bag, remove air from bag and close. After 24 hours, snip end of bag and transfer into containers.

Formulating Tips

  • Direct heat - electric hotplates or stovetops are recommended. We do not recommend using a water bath or microwave. Monitor constantly while heating.
  • Our Stainless steel beakers are perfect for small lab size batches as well as batches up to 1000grams. (see Equipment and Accessories)
  • VenaSilk is not oil soluble, but by dispersing into the hot oil phase, the particles will separate and will be incorporated into the emulsion more easily. VenaSilk will provide an emollient silkiness to this formula.
  • Overhead mixer or hand held stick blender can be used. When emulsion begins to thicken, switch to a paddle attachment or hand held stir tool such as our stainless steel whips.
  • Allow emulsion to stabilize for 24 hours before packaging in containers. Very often problems such as condensation will occur when emulsions are packaged while warm. For best results, be sure emulsion has cooled down completely which generally takes about 24 hours.
  • Airless Containers are recommended (see Packaging and Containers)
  • Distilled or purified water can be used in place of hydrosols.
