Intro: Lavender Face Water / Makeup Remover With Quality Oils

It was clear after today's walk in the garden that the season of lavender cosmetics has started for me. And the first will be the face water that you can use as a makeup remover as well as caring face water because of the oils it contains. I chose the jojoba oil because it's an incredibly nourishing oil and the apricot oil is soothing and very mild (that is why it's a very good choice for cosmetics for children).

Step 1: Ingredients

You will need:

- 45 g of lavender water
- I wrote a tutorial on that here
- 3 g of jojoba oil
- 2 g of apricot oil
- 1 g of EmulG emulgator
- 1g of Cosgard preservative
- a bottle

You can prepare this water without the preservative, however, you have to use it within two days.

Step 2: Mixing the Water

First make the flower water. Remember, the tutorial is here.

Let the water cool down, add the oils and the emulgator and mix with a hand whisk or the electrical whisk for frapé. Add the preservative and stir.

Disinfect the bottle and pour the water in.

Step 3: How to Use It

Shake the bottle before use and use the water to remove your makeup or just to take care of your skin. The best way is to pour a little on a cotton pad and softly stroke your face to remove the make-up or gently tap the skin if you want to use it for skin care.

    Looks fun- however, let me point out that lavender oils are not so good for us guys, especially young boys. The reason is the shape of one of the lavender molecules is very close to the shape of the estrogen molecule, and exposure has been linked to little boys developing breasts in puberty. Don't take my hearsay story- read up on it- I read about it in Scientific American a few years back.

    An emulgator is a substance that allows you to blend water and oil. A presevative prevents the mold and fungae forming in your product thus increasing shelf life. You can get both in a shop (online) with cosmetics ingredients, i bought them online at Manske (Germany). You can use other preservatives and emulgators but then watch 2 things:
    1. The emulgator should be one that is suitable for waters, not just creams.
    2. The ratios (how much you add depending on the weight of oil or the weight of the final product) might be different.
