Phase A: Combine water, hydrosol, and GSB, mixing high shear, until dissolved. Continue mixing high shear and add Irish Moss.

Phase B: Combine and add to Phase A with high shear mixing. Continue mixing for 10 minutes to ensure dispersion. Begin heating to 170F.

Phase C: Combine and heat to 170, stirring to combine and distribute heat throughout ingredients. Add to Phase A with high shear mixing. Continue mixing until the emulsion forms. Begin cooling to <90F, stirring continuously, if possible, or for at least 5 minutes, every 15 minutes, until cool.

Phase D: Add when cooled to <90F.

Notes: This formula is quite thin during the emulsification step but it gets, much, thicker once cooled.
To make this cream more rich, increase the cetearyl alcohol and increase the oil phase percentage.
To make this cream thinner, increase the water phase, reducing the oil phase / butter.

You may feel free to substitute a portion, or all, of the water phase with botanical extracts, or other water soluble ingredients to make this cream your own.
