diy cleansing oleogel with rose petal powder

cleansing oleogel by Stella Crown
After the last post about oily cleansing gels, I received a lot of e-mails; your interest in this soap-free cleanser product has exceeded my expectations and frankly I am so happy that you have started making your own oleogels! Mostly, I was glad you modified it to your skin type and your age group from 15 to 65 years old.

conditioning shampoo bars by Stella Crown
A few months ago, a friend presented us the shampoos she has been making over the past few years, and they have thrilled me as they had a special feature: they were  solid! So I started looking for this very new product (for me) informations, I actually read everyrthing, I did some experiments until I started creating my own formulas.

a little bit of chemistry: introduction to emulsifiers


Today I will make a simple introduction to emulsification because I think one of the most difficult chapters in lotion making is to decide which is the right emulsifier to use. For so many years, I have understood that choosing an emulsifier or a combination of emulsifiers is a matter that depends on too many factors. It depends on the texture you want to give to your cream, the ingredients you use, the percentage of oils and water ingredients etc.
