Couperosis Preventing Cream

by Olesya

I found this cream useful for treating spider veins on the face.

Mango butter 1,5 g
Rosehip oil 1 ml
Avocado oil 2,5 ml
Rice bran oil 11 ml
The above fatty oils are combined to reach a certain fatty acids composition, which mimics the one of healthy skin.

Any "green" emulsifier to prepare oil in water emulsion (I use Montanov L) ~1,5 g

Hamamelis hydrolat 8 ml
Cistus (rock rose) hydrolat 7 ml
Glycerin extract of fucus 1 ml

Co2 extract of Rosemary 0,5 ml
Co2 extract of Horse chestnut 0,5 ml
Rosemary essential oil 2 drops
Cypress essential oil 2 drops
Helichrysum essential oil 2 drops
Lemon essential oil 1 drop

Butter and fatty oils are to be heated with emulsifier to reach 160-165 degrees Fahrenheit. Hydrolats with Glycerin extract are to be heated to the same temperature in a separate vessel. Once both mixtures have the same temperature we can pour the aqueous phase into the fatty one and blend it using a cappuccino mixer. Once emulsion is ready we can add active ingredients: CO2 extracts and essential oils.

This cream is to be kept in a fridge for not more than 3 weeks (as it is preservative-free).
