Aloe Daily Moisturiser

Aloe Daily Moisturiser

 

This is a classic daily moisturiser that is just the perfect amount of hydration for the skin. It is non-greasy, absorbs fast, and leaves the skin feeling great for hours afterwards.

The Montanov 68 is a specialised emulsifier that acts as a moisturiser and provides moisture to the skin for hours after application. It prevents trans epidermal water loss in the skin, which is a great property to have in a face cream, especially in the drier winter months.

Avocado butter adds some deep moisturising and consitioning properties.

And actives of aloe vera, D panthenol, Vitamin E and niacinamide really boost the formula.

Give it a try!

Water phase

23.55%  aloe vera

50% heated water 

2%  glycerin

3% niacinamide

0.25%  xanthan gum

Yes i will let you know how it turned out. I will use mango butter, as i don’t have avo butter yet. Thanks a lot!!

Hi Ruanda, you can try substituting the xanthan gum for guar gum and you can try Emulsifier HP 30 or Olive M as a substitute for the Montanov. I haven’t tried these substitutions before so let us know how it goes!

I want to make your recipe for the moisturiser, but the montanov 68 MB are out of stock at the moment and also the eco wax. Any alternatives that i can use?

Ruanda

Hi. Can i use guar gum in this moisuriser?

Ruanda

Hi Vee, yes you probably could. It may change the final absorbancy a little as shea butter is much more greasy than avocado butter. But give it a give and let us know!
