About the Ingredients in this Anti Aging Night Cream Recipe

Rosehip seed oil was chosen for this night cream recipe due to its extremely high fatty acid content. It’s praised for it’s ability to fight against dry, weathered, and dehydrated skin. And it also works well at helping to minimize the appearance of scars. It’s commonly used throughout the beauty and skin care industry to help to prevent and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and premature aging.

Evening primrose oil was chosen for its naturally occurring gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) as well as its moisturizing and skin softening effects while cocoa butter lends its moisturizing and healing properties.

Coconut water also acts as a natural moisturizer to rehydrate skin. It is also rich in antioxidants and cytokinins which can help to prevent the skin from premature wrinkles and aging. In addition coconut water also has natural anti-viral, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal properties which can aid in healing as well as soothing damaged skin.

Anti Aging Night Cream Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

.35 oz. emulsifying wax
.1 oz. shea nut oil
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.25 oz. evening primrose oil
.5 oz. cocoa butter
.15 oz. liquid soy lecithin
.1 oz. stearic acid

.65 oz. coconut water (not from concentrate)
2 ml rose water (or rose hydrosol)

2 ml vitamin E
10 drops carrot seed essential oil, optional
.02 oz. Optiphen Plus

Instructions:

I recommend using double boilers for this anti aging night cream recipe. If you don’t have double boilers it’s snap to set canning rings inside your pot of water and then use a glass Pyrex measuring cup inside the pot on top of the canning ring. Just be sure to place the Pyrex in the pot of water BEFORE you turn on the heat. You’ll need a small one cup sized Pyrex measuring cup for the water based ingredients. This only makes about 2 oz. of product but you can easily double the recipe for a larger batch. You’ll also need a kitchen or candy thermometer.

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the emulsifying wax, liquid shea butter, rosehip seed oil, evening primrose oil, cocoa butter, liquid soy lecithin and stearic acid. Place in a double boiler and add heat it begins melting. Once it melts bring the temperature of the oils, wax and butters to 158°F (70°C) and hold for 20 minutes.

While the oils, butters and waxes are melting weigh out the coconut water into a second double boiler. Using a graduated plastic transfer pipette measure out the rosewater and stir into the coconut water. Bring the temperature of the waters to 158°F (70°C) and hold for 20 minutes.

Remove both the wax, butter and oil mixture and the waters from heat. Slowly pour the waters into the oils while mixing with a stick blender. Once all the water has been added mix with a stick blender for three minutes.

Allow the anti aging night cream mixture to cool to 113°F (45°C) then add the vitamin E, carrot seed essential oil and Optiphen Plus Preservative. Mix well for about two minutes with the stick blender then pour into the container(s) of your choice.

You can also wait a day or two for your anti aging night cream to reach its final consistency, whip with a fork then spoon into your jar(s). As my house is rather cold at the moment I found the cream was much creamier and smoother if I whipped it two days after I made it before filling my containers.

To use simply apply a small amount to your face and neck before bed paying extra attention to your eye area or other areas of concern. You can also apply this anti aging night cream during the day as you would an eye cream before applying makeup. It also works really well on dry hands and feet.

    Like it.

  2. Do you sell any of the products you make. Will really be interested in buying.

  3. I have made this wonderful Anti-aging Night Cream about 4 times already and i love it! Thank You So Much for sharing your wonderful recipes with us!! You are really good at this.

  4. Hi! I was wondering if you could explain what stearic acid and soy lecithin do for a cream? Also, I have been using neodefend as my preservative. I’m worried it’s the wrong choice. My goal is to find the most natural, non toxic preservative possible. How do you like optiphen plus?
    I love this recipe-can’t wait to try it!

    What is the difference between emulsifying wax & bees wax pastilles? Thanks!

  6. Hello! I’m often searching for all natural anti aging skin care diy recipes, but that seems to be as far as I get! I’m new to this stuff (meaning the diy part) but for some crazy reason, I haven’t been able to make anything with a cream base because I’m afraid that I’ll mess it up. Anything that has to be heated, I’m afraid that I’ll ruin it so my question is could I make this recipe by adding the ingredients into a whipped body butter base? Body butter is something that I do know how to do, but some of the ingredients that I’m new to, I have a fear of making because I’d be so mad at myself if I botched a batch! This is the reason that some things are better off being bought, LoL! Maybe I should check YouTube for some of these diy recipes? I’m definitely willing to give it a try, and in fact I want to learn to make these all natural anti aging recipes so any suggestions that you can throw my way to get past this fear, I would greatly appreciate! Blessings and peace to you. By the way, I LOVE your blog and recipe ideas <3

    • I’ve also had trouble with lotions and creams in the past. Thus this recipe is designed to be practically fail free as it contains a lower amount of water and includes other emulsifiers in addition to the emulsifying wax. I encourage you to try this one. I do have another recipe here with no water content however it has a lot more ingredients.

  7. Is there an alternative to the soy lecithin?

  8. Hello,where can I get these ingredients.I really liked this cream and wanted to use and get the best effects . Thanks.

  9. Christina de Sa says:

    Pse excuse my ignorance ur measurements… Am I correct in reading it as point 35oz? Thank u

  10. I’m allergic to coconuts. Is there anything I can substitute for the coconut water or could I just leave that out? Thanks!
