Plantamulse Pastilles Naturally Silky Cream (Recipe)

Plantamulse Pastilles Naturally Silky Cream conditions and soothes dry skin. Plantamulse Pastilles is the natural emulsifier for this lovely cream. As demonstrated in this formula, Plantamulse Pastilles has the ability to emulsify a very high percentage oil phase with no “whitening/soaping” effect or greasiness. Behenyl Alcohol provides stability and viscosity.

We have combined Shea Butter, Abyssinian Oil, and Botanical Complex LHC to replenish, nourish and condition skin. Avena Oat Extract WS and Botanical Complex HC offer excellent skin hydration and moisturization. Together, these ingredients provide the optimum in skin softening, conditioning and moisturization in a silky soft botanical cream.

This easy, but elegant recipe will make 500 grams or approximately 16 oz. of cream.

This formula was created by using percentages and weight measurements in grams. For the convenience of those who are just beginning to make toiletries, we have provided the approximate fluid/dry measurements as listed.

Notes

  • Overhead propeller mixer or high shear homogenizer or stickblender will work. Once cream thickens, switch to handheld wire whisk or other stir tool and stir until completely cool.
  • Viscosity and particle size may vary depending on mixer.
  • Batch can be scooped into gallon size freezer bag, sealed tightly. Allow 24 hours before dispensing into bottles or jars.
  • Emulsion will be thick enough for jars, but can be packaged in airless containers or bottles with pumps.
  • This formula is based on The Herbarie ingredients.
