Ingredients for creams: small vials on top are essential oils; jars from the left are coconut oil, shea butter, and cacao butter; bottom has a jar of jojoba oil, beeswax piece, and capsules of vitamin E.

Skin creams are used to moisturize, soften and protect the skin. They help with dry skin, rashes, sunburns and cold weather.

A simple skin cream is a mixture of oils, water, emulsifiers and a perservatives. With those key ingredients, anyone can make a cream at home. On top of that, there is a number of ingredients that can be used to presonalize these creams. The workshop will cover various ingredients starting with basics and building on that. Each participant will make their own cream and get to take a jar of it home with them. This workshop is donation based. Please donate €15 to help us cover the costs of ingredients and hardware needed in the workshop.
