Soothing + Protecting Face Cream Recipe
Author: Wholesale Supplies Plus
Thursday, February 16, 2017

This face cream has been designed with camelina oil, which is found in many high-end products. Camelina oil has been called "Gold of Pleasure" due to its valuable use in cosmetics. Bamboo Extract is thought to be soothing and possess anti-inflammatory qualities, while the Silk Amino Acid helps provide a protective barrier to skin!

Recipe Directions

NOTE: If you are making these products for sale, good manufacturing practices recommend you wear a hairnet, gloves and a mask. We also recommend a clean apron.
  1. Weigh the camelina oil and place in glass pyrex cup (preferably 64 oz.). Add 2 oz. emulsifying wax and heat in microwave until the wax has completely melted (about 60 seconds).
  2. Remove and stir to dissolve any small wax pieces.
  3. Fill the empty measuring cup with 25 oz. of distilled water. 
  4. To water, add 2 oz. bamboo extract and 0.5 oz. silk amino acids and stir. 
  5. Carefully pour the water into the warmed oil and wax. Gently stir.
  6. For mixing, you can either use a stick blender or a hand mixer. We prefer a stick blender as it will emulsify your lotion quicker.    
  7. Taking the stick blender on low, begin to blend the lotion. You will see it quickly thicken up. Turn off stick blender.
  8. Add 0.5 oz. vitamin E, 0.5 oz. fragrance and 5 ml of optiphen plus. 
  9. Continue to stick blend. The optiphen can thin out the lotion, but it will thicken back up as you continue to stick blend and the lotion cools.
  10. Once the lotion reaches a nice consistency, you can begin filling jars. Place empty jar on scale and tare to zero. Fill to about 1.75 oz., repeat until all jars have been filled.
  11. Let product cool completely and then place lids on.
  12. Label product accordingly.
  13. Directions: Gently rub a small amount of lotion on your face and neck. This is light enough to wear under makeup, if desired.

"Shorter question. The INCI ingredient listing for this recipe from below is different from the INCI listing for each individual ingredient. For instance, the silk amino acid is listed here as just that but on it's own, it is listed as Hydrolyzed Silk. Water is not listed below as an ingredient is that required? I just want to make sure I am listing correctly. I made this and love the feel. Thanks. "
