This time, my creativity has been boosted by the famous almond milk powder that I received from home AZ for test.
This milk is in fact composed of granules which are transformed into milk in contact with water. The size of the granules is
interesting for a face scrub. So I thought to myself: Why not do a body scrub oily, which decays into cream in contact with water? And the balls of
almond milk would the exfoliation and then dissoleveraient. Hop, it is party!
I have done several tests of balm containing 50% emulsifier with Glycerol Sorbitan monostearate and
olivem. The cream obtained was better with the olivem, but the emulsifier plant gave a better touch the balm. Hop, majority ofOlivem, But a little bit of Glycerol Sorbitan monostearate Also. And of the
Cocosilicone To improve the sliding of the
balm that should be sufficient to take a massage "dry".
I have chosen to the sesame oil, simply because it is suitable for most of the skins (and
particularly to my skin mixed), is not greasy and is not too expensive. However, the mine has a smell of walnuts, which can disturb. I avoided to add a butter in order to do not thicken
even more texture.
Of course, the star of the balm is the almond milk powder, that I added to the judge during the
The synergy of essential oils that I have used comes from the synergy Rainbow Meadow, you can
still be found among Irene. The mixture of lavender
, benzoin and lemon is divine, it looks like a pastry in the lemon! And not to spoil, i took advantage of virtues & and sedated from the lavender and the benzoin as well as
those purifying and illuminating of the lemon. Perfect for a mixed skin, fat or even acne-like.
Recipe (The percentages do not fall
fair because i otc readjust with the almond milk mit to the judge! ):
Olivem 31.8 %
4.5 % Glycerol sorbitan monostearate (mine came from among MacosmetoPerso, but they do sell more, I do
not know too much or it can be found now, if someone has a runway? I think that we can replace it by the VE (Glyceryl stearate)
40.4 % Sesame Oil
9.1 % Cocosilicone
13.6 % Milk almond powder
0.5 % Vitamin E
HEY: lavender (3 gt), absolute of benzoin (1), lemon (4)
Pazapas: It is sufficient to melt the olivem, the glycerol
sorbitan monostearate, sesame oil, the cocosilicone and vitamin E sets. Once the all homogeneous good, remove from the fire, incorporate the almond milk powder and the HEB (if possible to below
40 °C if the texture allows) and put in pot!
Texture after you have added to the water: the balls of almond milk have melted and the everything was emulsifies immiscible to give a
Use: that of happiness! We applied on dry skin (but clean), it is ground. The balls of almond milk are doing their
job well. Once the body scrub finished, it is moistened and we ground to transform the balm in cream. It is exhilarating, fun! We have to deal with a real cream on the face, the granules of
almond milk have completely melted! We can then leave install as a mask. It flushed 10 minutes later, ca hand very easily! And it leaves the skin soft hyper ...
Verdict: I love the concept! Ca allows you to formulate without
adding a conservative, perfect for those with allergies.
The secret is to make without a yota of water. Not even a surfactant, which contain almost all a remarkably beautiful water (except
the solid, but for the melt in the bold, must cling), in order not to melt the balls of milk.
The body scrub is a bit punchier, to avoid for sensitive skin, and the texture is a little basis which
would facilitate the spread and the massage. The smell is nice, but a remarkably beautiful too discreet to my taste.
