Approach making your own cream as you would approach making a wonderful spaghetti sauce. It’s an art (like cooking), not a science (like baking) unless you’re creating products for sale that must remain constant. There’s no one perfect way and you might substitute some ingredients from time to time to play around with the recipe. Look at cream recipes as a guideline and not necessarily as a law.
Makes 2 x 2 oz jars
2/3 cup Cream Starter Base (140 g)
2 tsp sweet almond oil (Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis)(10 g)
2 tbsp rosewater (30 g)
2 tbsp cocoa butter (Theobroma Cacao) (30 g)
2 tbsp mango butter (Mangifera Indica) (30 g)
Cream Starter Base ingredients:
Purified Water, Emulsifying Wax NF, Stearic Acid, Phenoxyethanol, Caprylyl Glycol, Sorbic Acid.
Sure, you can make creams from scratch but starting with a nice healthy cream base is easier for beginners. using a pre-mixed cream base takes care of the step of getting the water into solution with the emulsifying wax.

Guys love the soft natural scent of this one, too so makes great gift for the guys in your life. Better yet, get them on board and in the kitchen helping out and spread the awareness of good health through good ingredients in food and body products.
