Wicked Body Cream

Cooled cream on my finger

Cooled cream on my finger

Wicked is my favorite fragrance! It combines deep and dark with a touch of innocence. Since Halloween is just around the corner and my excitement for the holiday grows I find myself wanting a body cream scented with this fragrance. I already have a perfume in a Glass Roller Ball Bottle that is a mixture of this fragrance and Coconut Oil Fractions, but that isn’t enough for me! My mom always told me to layer my scents so I decided that making a body cream would give the scent another layer and add staying power without being overwhelming. I designed this cream to be fluid and rub in easily without leaving the skin greasy, and to be pampering to the skin. After testing the cream Joy told me that it is a nice transitional weather body cream that would work for either fall or spring. The cream would also be great for anyone who needs help with skin that is just a bit dry! Let’s take a peek at all the ingredients!

I chose Babassu Oil as one of my main oils because it contributes a soft and silky texture without a greasy feel. This oil is a great addition to the cream. I also wanted to use this oil so I could create more recipes using this dreamy oil!

Macadamia Oil is an oil that many of our customers use as a massage oil and it contributes a lovely drag and glide to any lotion or cream. I enjoy using this oil for this delectable combination.

I don’t play with Black Currant Oil as much as I feel I should, but I love using oils that have minimal odor and a high percentage of GLA (Gamma-linolenic acid). Since this fatty acid is known for the skin renewal, I can’t help but use oils with this important fatty acid.

I wanted to ensure that my cream wouldn’t separate, so I used Emulsifying Wax as my emulsifier. I added a little bit of Stearic Acid to give the cream some body without making it waxy.

I decided to go back to my roots on humectants for this cream and I used Liquid Glycerin. I didn’t want to use so much that the cream would be sticky, but I wanted to try to keep the cream simple!

Liquid Germall Plus is one of my go-to preservatives because it has a low required usage rate. (Which means money saved!) It also is compatible with most cosmetic ingredients so I don’t have to worry as much about a failed preservative.
