Organic Base Cream
We are pleased to introduce an organic base cream formulated in the UK and certified by COSMOS.
It is light base that leaves the skin smooth and silky.
It is suitable to all skin types. However the cream will allow you to use your creative streak and customise it to your own personal needs or those of your clients by adding active ingredients of your choice. As such 0.5 to 1% Essential oils can be added to fragrance your cream or benefit from the therapeutic nature of the oils. Equally the cream will hold up to 5% of extra base oils. This allows you to add nourishing oils that will enable to target a specific condition more efficiently.. Think of rosehip and pomegranate for mature skin, calendula for dry and sensitive skin, borage or evening primrose, St John's wort or arnica etc… 5% is typically the limit as adding too much will cause the cream to separate,
It has a 6 months shelf life once the jar has been open. As the cream has a high water component, it requires the use of preservatives in order to control the growth of bacteria and mould. The preservatives used in this base cream are not as powerful and strong as in a standard high street product. It is advisable to buy the cream when you need it and used it as soon as you receive it therefore buy a small quantity often rather than a large pot with a view to kieep using it for weeks or months.
if you decide to buy a larger pot, it is advisable to decant a small quantity into a smaller container and place the original pot in the fridge to be used when required. It is the repeated opening and closing of the pot and and the exposure of the cream to oxygen in the air that contributes to the product wasting more quickly..
