Home made hand cream?
Posted: Thu Sep 20, 2007 11:51 am
Does anyone make their own hand creams or moisturisers? I fancy giving it a go, have found a few recipes on the internet but wondered if anyone's got a good tried and tested version. The easier the better!

Here's a recipe from www.fresholi.co.uk
its apparently a good one, i'm going to try it this weekend:
This is a lovely cream that has a slight greenish tinge from the natural hemp.
Phase 1: (75 degrees)
14ml Apricot kernel oil
10ml Natural Hemp oil
6g Mango butter
5g Emulsifying powder
2g Cetyl alcohol
Phase 2: (at least 75 degrees)
70ml Spring water (boiling)
Phase 3: (35 degrees)
3ml Vitamin E
Preservative (according to manufacturers instructions)
Phase 4: (25 degrees or below)
10 drops Rosemary
14 drops Lavender
Lactic or citric acid to balance pH
The lecithin is not vital (which is good because i have no idea where to get some...)
