Cranberry & Olive Anti-Oxidant Cream Recipe

Review: Be the first to review Cranberry & Olive Cream Formula


This thick, rich cream is the perfect solution to dry, thristy skin. Made with OliveWax, to illustrate the wonderful skin conditioning attributes of this ingredient, combined with Cranberry Seed Oil, to deliver additional nutrients, your skin will love this treatment.

We've chosen to make this cream 100% natural, using Gluconolactone & Sodium Benzoate, for our preservative, along with Aloe Vera, as a skin healing carrier, and natural, thickeners, and rheology modifiers.

This is an anti-oxidant cream, with a unisex fragrance, making it suitable for everyone. Especially great for your Metro Male product line.

FORMULATION SPECIFICS :: In this formula we are using the active level of 0.5% (to water) Aloe 200x to reconstitute the entire portion of water to 100% Aloe Vera Juice. If you'd like to simplify this formula, and reduce your investment in materials, you can substitute our Aloe Vera Extract for the Purified Water, GSB, and Aloe, using the extract at 77.12%. We are using Xanthan Gum to modify the texture, with enhanced glide, which will also improve emulsion stability.
