Cream Fresh Summer (with Lamecreme)

It is already second time that I decide to make the cream with Lamecreme. This vegetable emulgator makes the cream stable and creates a good texture. We repeat again what we know about Lamecreme.
INCI: Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate
Origin: Vegetable, extracted from palm oil, palm kernel oil, sunflower oil, glycerin and citric acid.

Lamecreme is a self-emulsifying emulsifier for W/O and O/W. The pellets melt at 55ºC - 65ºC.
Lamecreme is suitable for all type of skin and gives a soft matte feeling, has a moisture-binding properties. Lamecreme is usually used in night creams and bodymilks.

My cream Fresh Summer is created from two phases.

Phase 1: 8g lamecreme, 20g apricot kernel oil, 5g argan oil, 4g of cocoa butter;
Phase 2: 63g orange blossom water;
Finishing touch: vitamin E (2 capsules), 8 drops of Grapefruit Seed Extract, 8 drops of Sweet Orange EO.

- 30 g Stearic Acid to melt:

- add 4g Cocos Butter and 4 g Shea Butter, to melt together:

Cream Stay Young!

Cream Stay Young! made from the best oils for the skin: argan, - jojoba,- wheat germ, - avocado- oils.
Also I used Sodium Hyaluronate and learned more about this salt of hyaluronic acid.
When applied to the skin Sodium Hyaluronate greatly improves the skin’s absorption and retention of water. This leads to an increased elasticity of the skin, and hence a reduction in the appearance of wrinkles. So, we will Stay Young!
Lamecreme helps to keep the cream stable. INCI: Glyceryl Stearate, Glyceryl Stearate Citrate. Origin: Vegetable,  extracted from palm oil, palm kernel oil, sunflower oil, glycerin, and citric acid.
As the antioxidant I used Grapefruit Seed Extract which is a good conservant and protects skin from free radicals. As mentioned on the website Grapefruit seed extract is made from the seeds, pulp and peel of grapefruits, to create a very bitter solution. The solution is concentrated to such a low, acidic pH that it is has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and even anti-viral properties.  This is because acid breaks down the outer membranes of these tiny organisms, dissolving their structure, and killing them quickly and easily.

P.S.: Hmm ... the information from the source creates my doubts about puur natural ingedients of Grapefruit Seed Extract.

Spicy cream for cold feet and "sleeping" hands

my different extracts
The neighbours of my boyfriend are nice old friendly couple. Every Sunday we visit them and together drink morning coffee (without caffeine pffee :( but with tasty apple cake :)). The old man, 85 years  claims that his feet are always cold.
In my head is a spontan question: Is there some "creams" solution for? 

Searching, reading, preparation and finally today I create the Spicy cream for the cold feet.
Two weeks ago I made the special spicy extract: almond oil and ground pepper.
Spicy cream for cold feet
Ingredients for this hot Spicy cream:
5% - beeswax,
20% - cacao butter,
45% - shea butter,
5% - neem oil,
5% - hazelnut oil,
10% - ginger oil,
10%- well done own piquant extract,
es. oil rosemary, geranium, verbena.

First I am going to test on my feet and tommorrow on the feet of my boyfriend sure.

14/03/2013 Report ;):

My boyfriend often complaints that his hands numb while sleeping.
We tried daily before go to the bed use my Spicy cream as the hand cream and as the massage cream for hands. He told that feels better, it seems my cream helps to blood circulation not only for cold feet but also for "sleeping" hands. Good not know.
I made next portion and improve the smell of the cream. This time I added the es. oils:

- Black Pepper,
- Rosemary,
- Frankincense.

Need to say the neem oil has very special smell which I do not like. But the components that give off the offensive sulfurous smell are the ingredients that make neem oil so effective for the skin.
So the new combinations of the es. oils cover the neem oil smell better.

Solid cream

Today I made the solid cream  from the cacao butter, shea butter, apricot oil, stearic acid with es. oil cinnamon and clove. These ingredients guarantee a warm winter smell and pleasant efficient effect for a dry sensitive skin. I decide to use the stearic acid (octadecanoic acid)  instead of the beewax to make the skin softer.
Good to know that the stearic acid is one of many fatty acids that occur naturally in  many animal and vegetable fats and oils.The best application of the solid cream is on the wet warm skin, it means just after the bath. I have to admit that this solid cream melt very easy and gives special feeling of silky skin.
75% - cacao butter
23% - shea butter
2% - stearic acid
10% - apricot oil and es.oils: cinnamon and clove
