IMPORTANT: This cream is a concentrate and should never be used without additions. It has been specifically preserved to receive up to 40% additional materials/ingredients without compromising the preservation system, but be careful not to break the emulsion by adding 30% of oils, for example. Work to maintain a standard emulsion in terms of the ratio of ingredients, or add an existing cream or lotion to this in small amounts to test stability.

With that said, preservation should always be properly tested prior to going to market with a new product, and we cannot make guarantees regarding preservation once additions or alterations have been made outside our facility.

Directions for use:

The Basic Concentrate gives you the opportunity to be creative and make your own cream or lotion. The preservative system is formulated to receive up to 40% additional ingredients, therefore this concentrate should never be applied to the skin without additional ingredients. This would be deionized water, oils, butters, fragrances and glycerin or alcohol based extracts, and other additives. Deionized water would include distillates, floral waters, hydrosols and herbal extracts. Aim to keep the formula stable by adding proportionate amounts of ingredients that make a standard emulsion.

For example, if you add 10% of an oil, you also need to add additional emulsifier – probably about 1% -2% to make the cream stable again depending on your oil choice.


For best results, add the water and oil phases (not including essential oils and fragrance oils) hot at 140° F. As the product cools it must be vigorously stirred to prevent separation. For best results use a high shear mixer such as a stick/immersion blender. Add any essential or fragrances oils once product is cooled.

Packaging Tips:

Package true to your brand's aesthetic in appropriate packaging for your end products viscosity.
