Method
Give phase A into a disinfected, heat-resistant glass beaker and heat it to 175oF/75oC, until the ascorbyl palmitate and creammaker is melted. Heat phase B in another disinfected glass beaker to the same temperature. Add phase A to phase B and stir well. Remove from the heat. Add phase C and mix very well so that it will be lump free. Add phase D to phase A/B/C and stir well. The viscosity can further be adjusted with GelMaker EMU.

Properties
Soothing and fresh lotion-gel with the harmonizing anti-oxidant combination ascorbyl palmitate and vitamin E. Cucumber extract has moisturizing and soothing properties. Non-greasy lotion-gel for under makeup or whole body.
