Wow this lady has a home made cold cream recipe
Check it out!


110 gm white beeswax
254 gms oil (mineral, rice bran)
132 gms distilled water
4 gms borax (1 tsp)

This is really quick to whip up. I measure the oil and beeswax in a disposable plastic container and pop it in the microwave for no more than 30 seconds at a time, stirring each time until all the beeswax is melted. Mix the borax and water in another container and microwave until the water is hot and the borax is dissolved. Then using a whisk mix the water/borax into the oil/beeswax. It will turn white straight away but keep mixing til it starts to cream up. Some people like to use a hand blender for this to make it light and fluffy…but I find the cream is just fine.

It's like Ponds cold cream.
