This cream is formulated as a ‘skin friendly’ alternative to the common Sorbolene and ‘aqueous’ creams. Those products are based on petrochemicals – mineral oil, paraffin and petroleum jelly – along with strong synthetic emulsifiers and preservatives. They are a poor base for preparations, being neither skin-compatible nor offering any regenerative benefits for the skin.
Instead of mineral oil and other synthetic ingredients, Essential Base Cream is based on the pure vegetable oils of Sweet Almond, Macadamia and Coconut. The full ingredient list includes pure Cocoa Butter, vegetable oil derived emulsifying wax, distilled water, vegetable oil derived glycerine, Rosemary antioxidant and grapefruit seed extract as a natural preservative – nothing more and nothing less!
Essential Base Cream is our ‘general purpose’ base cream and is an excellent carrier base for all types of topical applications. Essential Base Cream is very versatile. You can add up to an additional 10% of essential oils, our Therapeutic Massage Concentrates, Skin Synergy Blends or other oily ingredients. All you need to do is to stir in any additional ingredients until fully mixed. In summary, Essential Base Cream is the perfect base cream for all types of skin care applications, including ‘non-oily’ massage, reflexology treatments and more.
