In the last article, we told you about the list INCI cosmetic products. To give you a more specific example, today we would like to talk to you about creams . What is a cream typically made of? How do you recognize a good cream? And how BeautyMix offers you to switch from industrial creams to homemade creams , obviously keeping the guideline that makes up a list of ingredients!
With this article, we want to reassure you about making your own cream, by proving to you that with the same ingredient base as beauty professionals, you can make creams that are just as effective, in less time !
So, let's do a little comparison!
What is a cream made of?
To start, know that a cream is an emulsion . It is more precisely the dispersion of a liquid in another mutually immiscible liquid, in the form of fine droplets. These two liquids are in two phases: an aqueous phase and an oily phase .
Commercially and traditionally, an emulsion is made in this way. Let's start with the aqueous phase:
|Aqueous solvent (also known as dispersant phase)||Excipient |
|Gelling agent or thickener||Viscosity|
|Polyols ||Humectant (also known as hygroscopic moisturizer)|
In the oily phase, you will find:
|Solid or liquid fat (also known as dispersed phase)||Viscosity, spreading and emollient|
|Asset||Efficacy and action of the product|
|Additive||Odor, color, PH, viscosity|
Make your homemade cream?
As we have just seen, a list of ingredients follows a classic guideline. Afterwards, brands are free to add more or less of these ingredients to their formula.
So how do you find your way around and be sure that you are offered creams like in the trade but better? Home cosmetics with BeautyMix means finding the basis of these lists of ingredients and incorporating them with ease thanks to our receipts.
In the recipe for normal skin cream, here is what each of our ingredients corresponds to!
|G el of linen||Moisturizing active|
|Hydrosol of rose, orange blossom, peppermint...||Additive|
|Sweet almond oil||Fat body|
If you hesitated to take the plunge, you now know that home cosmetics with BeautyMix leaves no detail untouched and offers you an alternative to the complex and overly long lists of certain creams!
Making your own cream with BeautyMix is also a better alternative in terms of time than classic homemade cosmetics. Indeed, you do not need to worry about buying additional accessories like the whisk and the bain marie, nor worry about mixing the two phases (aqueous and oily).
