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.

Homemade Gift Idea for Guys - Handmade DIY Face Cream for Men

Despite many common stereotypes, a lot of men actually use skin care products on a regular basis – including face creams and lotions. A common issue I’ve heard from the men I know however, is that facial care for them are often scented too strong if they’re created specifically for men or they smell super girly if they’re not. Also that sometimes finding suitable unscented products can be a chore.

So here’s a homemade face lotion recipe just for your favorite man. It’s ever so lightly scented with a masculine fragrance, can easily be crafted in under five minutes, and is formulated to be gentle enough for faces and sensitive skin. Gift it this year as a homemade Valentine’s Day gift, a Father’s Day gift or even a Christmas stocking stuffer.

4 oz. Unscented Gentle Face Cream Cosmetic Base
1 ml Happy (Type) For Men Type Premium Grade Fragrance Oil (or other skin safe masculine scented fragrance oil)

Instructions:

Using a digital kitchen scale, weigh out the lotion base into a small glass measuring cup or glass beaker. Then, using a graduated plastic transfer pipette, measure out 1 ml of the fragrance oil – or 2ml for a stronger scent – and mix well until fragrance is fully incorporated into the lotion base.

Now simply spoon the lotion into a 4 oz. plastic container or a glass jar with lid and cap. You can label your jar with a hand drawn label for a more intimate look using a blank label sticker sheet to create your message or product label or simply dress it up a pretty strip of washi tape around the jar.
