Emulsion, The Magic Trick of Creams and Lotions. Water and Oil don't mix on their own. When it comes to creating a cream or a lotion, something must be done to water and oil based ingredients in order for them to combine. Emulsion occurs when water is allowed to encapsulate oil molecules with the help of a stretchy ingredient called an emulsifier. Lecithin is a common emulsifier found in nature. In cooking, the lecithin contained in egg yolk allows chefs to create luscious emulsified sauces such as mayonnaise or hollandaise.

Creams and lotions are created in a very similar way. Only when it comes to lotions and creams, other ingredients must be used to maintain a stable, long term emulsion. Emulsifying Wax is an ingredient that has been especially formulated for this purpose. You can also create an emulsion with the help of natural ingredients. To create a basic emulsion formula, try working with this simple formula: 1 part Emulsifier3 parts Oil / Vegetable Butter6 parts Water or Hydrosol. 3 Tips for Moisturizing Skin in Winter | Winter weather can leave our skin dehydrated from cold temperatures, wind and the effects of indoor heat.
