Wrinkle Wrecker Face Cream

Some of my clients have been asking for a cream for mature skin. After doing some research on some of the properties of sea buckthorn, I developed this recipe.

This is an excellent face cream for dry, aging or damaged skin. Be mindful that sea buckthorn has natural oils which could stain clothing.

I gave out samples of this face cream at work yesterday. I will let you know the feedback I receive, as it’s a new recipe.

Wrinkle Wrecker Face Cream

  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Sea buckthorn oil
  • 1/2 cup (120 ml) Poppyseed oil
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) Balm of Gilead-infused almond oil
  • 1/8 cup (30 ml) Shea butter
  • 1/8 cup (30 ml) Coconut oil
  • 1/8 cup (30 g) beeswax
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) commercially prepared organic aloe vera gel
  • 3/4 cup (180 ml) rose hydrosol
  • 10 drops of Vitamin E oil
  • a few drops of geranium essential oil


Combine the oils, butter and beeswax in a saucepan over very low heat until everything is melted together

Pour into a measuring cup or container and let cool until the mixture is somewhat firm, thick and creamy

Scrape the oil mixture into a blender.

In a separate bowl. Combine the hydrosol, gel and essential oil

Turn the blender on full speed and slowly drizzle the the water mixture into the vortex created by the blender

Continue blending until all the water mixture has been absorbed by the oil.

The blender should “choke” as the mixture thickens and becomes creamy

After turning off the blender, scoop the cream into small jars.

Store the cream in a cool dark place.
