seabuckthorn summer facial fluid

Spring is here and my winter facial cream is used. It is warm outside and I am working the whole day outside. Nearly every evening I am coming home with sun glowing cheeks.
In spring / summer I like to use light creams and fluids with a quick absorption in my skin.
This fluid is based on 25% lipids and 75% water.
As base lipids I used jojoba oil, apricot kernel oil and coconut oil.
Jojoba oil is a very diverse oil that suits to every skin type, especialy impure skin.
The benefits of apricot kernel oil are very similiar to jojoba oil. This oil suits also to all skin types. It is fast absorbing on our skin and so perfect for simple and light creams and lotions.
Coconut oil has a quick absorption on the skin and improves the haptic of the cream. It suits to every skin type and is perfect for light summer creams.
Besides I also added shea butter and mango butter. Sheabutter is helps dry and also barrier-damaged skin. It gives, like mango butter, the cream a smoother texture. Mango butter is slightly lipid balacing.
Seabuckthorn makes out of this cream a real summer cream it adds a fresh, fruity scent and beautiful colour. It promotes the cell regeneration in our skin, is an anti-inflammatory and contains a lot of antioxidants. It is perfect for skin damages caused by the sun.

My recipe is made for 100gr. Please make sure to have a super clean working space. I deinfect all my working tools and place them on paper sheets or a fresh towl.
Next to the ingredients you will need a thermometer, spatula, mixing glasses ( you can also use empty jam jars ), cosmetic container and a hand blender.

 lipid phase
  • 7 gr jojoba oil
  • 5 gr apricot kernel oil
  • 4 gr coconut oil
  • 2,5 gr shea butter
  • 2,5 gr mango butter
  • 1 gr 1-hexadecanol, cetyl alcohol ( gives more texture to the cream)
  • 2 gr emulsan- methyl glucose sesquistearate ( emulsifier )
Place the mixing glass in a clean pot filled with water. Give the ingredients for the fat phase in the glass. Stear and let them melt. Heat the oils up to 75 °C.

water phase
  • 71 gr distilled water
  • 0,2 gr xanthan gum ( make sure to get the version that you don't have to dissolve in glycerin ) 
  • seabuckthorn fruit flesh oil ca. 3-5 drops
  • essential oils ( I used bloodorange and litsea)
Place another mixing glass filled with the distilled water in the pot. Heat the water phase up to 75 degrees like the fat phase. Both have to have the same temperature to emulsify.Now give the water phase part by part to the fat phase while mixing with the hand blender. Mix for 1-3 min until you have a white milk alike mixture. Now stear with a wooden spoon until the mixture is hand warm. Fill it in a cosmetic container and let it cool down.
When cooled down mix in the seabuchthorn oil and a few drops of your favourite essential oils ( I used bloodorange and litsea) you can also add 1 gr rokonsal to preserve it longer.


  1. Nice blog!! Eye is a precious wealth of our body. So, take care of it. Sakare products help me to make a statement with eyes that entice.

  2. Great recipe! Where do you get all the different oils and especially the 1-hexadecanol, cetyl alcohol and the emulsan- methyl glucose sesquistearate?
