How to make hard hydrophilic oil for washing
We have already told about such an interesting and unusual cosmetic for facial skin purification as hydrophilic oil. This oil removes the remains of cosmetics and dirt thoroughly, but carefully, nourishing and moistening the skin at the same time. If you go for a trip, you can make a more convenient, “trip” variant of this purifying cosmetic – the hard chocolate oil that also frees the skin from dirt, and it won’t take too much room in your toiletry bag and it won’t get spilled.
- Cocoa oil – 2.39 oz (68 g.)
- Crumbled cocoa – 0.35 oz (10 g.)
- Polawax emulsion wax – 0.18 oz (5 g.)
- Polysorbate-80 – 0.35 oz (10 g.)
- Candelilla wax – 0.25 oz (7 g.)
Weigh the cocoa, crumbled cocoa, candelilla wax and Polawax, put the jar on a water bath.
Add the Polysorbate-80 to it, mix all up thoroughly. You must get homogenous liquid mass with pronounced chocolate flavor.
Pour the hot oily mass into cases (for deodorant sticks or just for lipstick and lip balsam cases).
Let the hydrophilic oil harden. At the room temperature the mass will harden in 1-2 hours already and it will transform in quite a hard pencil that perfectly keeps it shape and doesn’t get spilled (unless it is left under direct sun rays).
You should spread the hard hydrophilic oil on the wet facial skin, and spread it with circular motions. When contacting the water, it transforms into purifying milk with a very appetizing chocolate flavor, the milk tenderly washes off the remains of make-up and dirt from the skin. Having rinsed the remains of hydrophilic oil with warm water, you can continue the usual skin care procedures (to spread the tonic, cream, etc.).
- Despite the fact that the composition of the purifying pencil includes quite much candelilla wax, the hard hydrophilic oil can be perfectly washed off even with cool water, without leaving the feeling of stickiness and greasiness.
