It is so rare for me to write a post about men skincare products.

macadamia vegetal oil for rich skin care cream

My former post about men products was a men cream review: Bulldog skin care for men (click here for this Bulldog review)

In this post I promised I would share a man cream recipe soon…

Here I am… with my tutorial and formulation for a rich, menlish cream…with a masculine natural fragrance…

I have to say, I have been inspired by my last post reviewing the macadamia oil ingredient’s benefits in cosmetic.

The Ingredients needed for this DIY men cream (for 50 ml)

For your oil mix:

-Beeswax: 1 gram

-A mix of Cetearyl Olivate and sorbitan olivate (from olive oil): 1.75 grams each for a total of 3.5 grams (use an electronic scale), if you don’t find these ingredients, replace with 2.75grams of beeswax.

-Macadamia vegetal oil: 5.5 grams

-Apricot kernel vegetal oil: 5.5 grams

For your water mix:

-Orange flower hydrosol: 17 grams

-Filtered water ( I use a PH filter and select the PH 6.5 which is ideal for my cosmetic) if you don’t have that kind of filter, use regular mineral water ( the lowest PH, the best, natural skin’s PH is between 5.5 and 6.5): 17 grams

-xanthane gum: 1.25 grams (mix it with your water mix while stiring energically)

 

For your finishing touch: the frangrance active ingredients:

-15 drops of geranium essential oil

-25 drops of Perou Balm essential oil

-10 drops of vitamin E (natural anti oxidant…great for your skin…and also acting as a natural preservative)

How to proceed: Tutorial for your men skin care face cream

Pour the oil ingredients in a bowl A, and the water ingredients in a bowl B.

Use a double pan heating, setting both bowls in the same pan (so you don’t need to keep track of the equal temperature of your 2 mixtures)

heat bowls in bain marie

As soon as you see the all the beeswax is melted, pour the bowl A in the bowl B while mixing…to emulsifie, exactly as if you where preparing a mayonnaise.

pour 2 mixture oil and water for emulsifyingWhen you have a white liquid, take the bowl out of the “bain marie”, put the bowl’s bottom in a cold water container, go on with stirring…once you notice the liquid is turning to be a little bit more solid, pour the countenance of the bowl C ( the finishing touch) into the bowl B and keep going with stiring for 2 more minutes. Your man cream is ready to pour into your cosmetic container.

It smells veeeery good…I think the essential oil fragrance is well balanced for a man skincare. It can be used as an aftershave skincare…it doesn’t contain alcohol…and will hydrate your skin…

Ladies…it is a very good idea for a gift…

Mission accomplished…hydration, moister, masculine, natural fragrances, fighting age…all in one for men’s skin care

Enjoy…and be handsome by nature 🙂
