Ingredients:

  1. 1/4 cup distilled water
  2. 1/4 cup aloe vera gel
  3. 1 tablespoon vegetable glycerin
  4. 1 tablespoon niacinamide powder

Instructions for Face Cream with Niacinamide & Emulsifying Wax

  1. Prepare your workspace: Sterilize all equipment, containers, and utensils that you’ll be using for this recipe. This ensures that your face cream remains clean and free from contamination.

  2. Heat the water phase: In a heat-resistant container or double boiler, combine the distilled water, aloe vera gel, and vegetable glycerin. Heat the mixture gently until it reaches around 70-75°C (158-167°F). Use a thermometer to monitor the temperature.

  3. Combine the oil phase: In another heat-resistant container or double boiler, combine the emulsifying wax, shea butter, and jojoba oil. Heat this mixture gently until the wax and butter have completely melted and the mixture is homogeneous.

  4. Combine the phases: Once both the water phase and oil phase have reached the desired temperature, slowly pour the oil phase into the water phase while stirring continuously. This step is crucial for creating an emulsion. Continue stirring until the mixture starts to thicken and emulsify.

  5. Add niacinamide: Once the mixture has cooled down slightly but is still warm, add the niacinamide powder. Stir well to ensure that the niacinamide is evenly distributed throughout the cream.

  6. Add essential oil (optional): If you’re using any essential oils for fragrance, add them to the mixture at this stage and stir well to incorporate.

  7. Cool and store: Allow the cream to cool down completely before transferring it to sterilized jars or containers. Store the face cream in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.

  8. Usage: Apply a small amount of the cream to your face and neck after cleansing and toning, preferably in the morning and evening.

This recipe yields a nourishing face cream that combines the moisturizing properties of shea butter and jojoba oil with the skin-brightening effects of niacinamide. Adjust the recipe according to your preferences and skin type, and perform a patch test before using the cream regularly, especially if you have sensitive skin. Enjoy your homemade face cream!
