With Nature in mind, we put a spin on the traditional, yet so effective cold cream.
The Koster Keunen formula for Nature’s Cold Cream and Make Up Remover still utilizes Beeswax as its primary water-in-oil (w/o) emulsifier, but is borax-free.
Use daily as a moisturizer, cleanser, or make-up remover.
Beeswax: Natural wax produced by honeybees. Multifunctional; excels at making anhydrous formulas soft and pliable, and making emulsions glossy, thick and with excellent pickup. Structurant, plasticizer, thickener.
Kester Wax K-24: Naturally derived wax ester of plant origin. Low melt point semi-solid, melts on body contact, provides cooling sensation. Adds slip, reduces greasy feel, dimethicone alternative. Usage level up to 50%.
Combine Phase A ingredients and heat at 80°C until melted.
Premix Glycerin and Keltrol, add to water and mix until uniform.
Add remaining Phase A components and heat to 80-85°C.
Add Phase B to Phase A and mix at high speed until emulsion is smooth, then cool at medium speed to 50°C or less.
