Homemade Cream Cleanser Recipe

by Sharon
(South Africa)

Q: Hi, I love your facial cleanser recipe using rosewater and glycerin, however my young daughter prefers a creamier texture. Is there any way to thicken this recipe?

A: Yep, just add half a tablespoon more emulsifying wax. I've actually updated the facial cleanser cream recipe to include stearic acid, which is a stabilizer that comes from vegetable oil. I find it makes the cleanser cream's texture much nicer. You might try adding that before increasing the amount of emulsifying wax.

I hope that helps - good luck!
