Herbarie Botanical Cream with Rose Geranium and Ylang Ylang

The Herbarie's Botanical Cream offers the best in moisturizing botanicals and skin conditioning emollients that leave skin silky soft. Plantago Extract is one of the best of the skin care botanicals. It brings skin smoothing and soothing nutrients, as well as humectant characteristics, to this formulation. Our Herbarie Rose and Melissa Hydrosols are excellent additions to any skin care regimen. For the ultimate in skin care benefits, these lovely distillates can be used as the entire water phase of the formulation. BTMS-Conditioning Emulsifier forms the emulsification system and is responsible for much of the conditioning and the silky soft feel of this formula. A perfect blend of rich oils and butters bring emolliency and conditioning to skin while leaving skin satiny smooth.

This is one of my favorite cream formulas. For those who do not own a scale, see our PDF for recipe using kitchen measurements.
