Dream cream

This is beautifully thick and creamy thanks to the cocoa butter. A gentle rose scent makes it dreamy to apply while hydrolyzed wheat protein help moisturise and protect skin.

Water Phase
105.5g | 52.75% Rose hydrosol
8g | 4% Glycerin, certified organic

Oil Phase
32g | 16% Camellia oil, certified organic
26g | 13% Emulsifier NF
20g | 10% Cocoa butter, deodorised, certified organic

Last Phase
4g | 2% Hydrolysed wheat protein

2g | 1% Calendula extract
0.5g | 0.25% Rose fragrance oil (optional)

  • In separate pots heat both Water Phase and Oil Phase to 65°C. (Make sure the emulsifier in the Oil Phase is completely melted, Oil Phase may heat faster and need to be taken off the heat to cool to 65°C while Water Phase catches up.)
  • When both are at 65°C pour Oil Phase into Water Phase and blend with stick blender until thick.
  • Let cool to 40°C then add Last Phase and blend again.
  • Tare an empty jug or pot on scales and put your finished cream into it. It will have lost water weigh, add more water to bring it up to final weigh. In this case 200g. Then blend again.
  • Spoon into jar/jars.
Tip: Pre-measure your Last Phase ingredients into a beaker or dish so that it's ready to go.

To use
  • Apply to skin as the final part of your skincare routine (though before sunscreen for daytime use)
  • Massage in and allow a minute or two to absorb
  • Rose hydrosol can be replaced by water or another hydrosol of your choice
  • Camellia oil can be replaced with another carrier oil, or multiple oils, as long as it stays at 16% of the whole formula.
