To make a homemade argan oil face cream you need the following basic ingredients: distilled water (100g or 3.5 oz), vegetable glycerine (5g or 0.17 oz), shea butter (5g or 0.17 oz), lannete wax (7.5g or 0.26 oz), essential oils (EAA) (1g), cosgard (1g or 0.03 oz) and, of course, Argan oil (7.5g or 0.26 oz). This recipe is very simple and you can do it in just 30 minutes.


Once you have all the ingredients separately weighed, place distilled water and vegetable glycerine in a bowl and heat both aqueous products to about 65 °C (149°F).


Meanwhile, in another saucepan place the vegetable oil, in this case argan oil, essences and fragrances of your choosing (EAA) and lannete wax, which acts as an emulsifier. Heat in bain-marie. Both ingredients should reach 70 ° C or 158 °F.

When that moment arrives, remove the pan from heat and pour in the shea butter. Do not mix until it has cooled, at least to about 5 °C or 41 °F.
