DIY lanolin cream

Making this cream is simple and playful, apart from the magnificent product, you will learn especially the principle of cream production.

You will need:
50g soft water (filtered or baby)
10g glycerin
20g almond oil
10g shea butter
10g lanolin (available here)
4g emulsifying wax (available here)
15 drops of preservative (available here)

For scenting, I recommend an essence according to your taste and mood, such as Orange, Lavender or Bergamot (10 drops)


We start by disinfecting the work surface, tools and hands. After applying the spray, let everything dry.

Prepare the first five ingredients and divide them into two glasses:
water phase: water and glycerin

oil phase: butter oil, shea butter and lanolin

Place in a water bath and heat carefully. Allow to stand at 65 ° C until the oil base is completely dissolved and combined.

Pour the emulation wax into the oil phase and let it completely dissolve.

Pour the oil phase into the water and whisk. Drip a preservative. And if you want essence.

Ideally whisk for about 1 minute.

Allow to cool to room temperature. The cream gradually thickens. The shelf life of the product is 6 months from production thanks to the preservative used.
