Thick and Luscious Cream........

I have just made a batch of my Goats Milk & Oatmeal Cream....and remembered to take pictures this time, yay!  I love making lotions and creams.  It is quite magical to watch them thicken and become something smooth and creamy or thick and luscious ~

Here are my melted oils, butters and emulsifing wax:



Once combined with the water-based ingredients everything turns milky white:



After time and cooling, the mixture becomes gorgeously thick!

Here is some in a jar, almost ready to be labelled:


This gorgeous, thick cream spreads well and sinks in fast with a lovely velvety after-feel. Made with a generous amount of soothing aloe vera juice; teamed with skin-loving oils and butters chosen for their anti-oxidant properties; and including colloidal oatmeal - for its soothing relief of dry, itchy or sensitive skin; and powdered goats milk - for its soothing, smoothing and moisturising properties.  This is best used unscented if you have a sensitive skin or certain skin conditions such as eczema or psoriasis.  If you would like to try some you can find it on my Facebook page and also in my Ethikl store.


Have a wonderful day!

Lovely! I have recently discovered lotion making and it's as addicting as soaping, I'm afraid! Yours sounds delicious!:-)

Lovely cream. I just recently made some myself and was so happy with the outcome. It's something I've not given a lot of time to but now I have I love making it...but not the cleaning up bit.

Thanks Tiggy. I love making it too. If you organise it so you have a batch of soap to clean up at the same time it makes it easier ;)

What a beautiful looking creme - it is thick thick thick and if you've added colloidal oatmeal to it, it must be one intensely soothing cream as well.

Thanks Kellie :)

Anne-Marie, I first made this for my daughter to use on her hands as she had a severe reaction to something in the kitchen where she works and they looked scalded. After 2 days of using it her hands were almost back to normal!
