How to: Rose and Soapnut Slow Beauty Cleansing Milk

Pictured: One of the latest batches of my Rose and Soapnut Slow Beauty Cleansing Milk. This is partly experimenting with a few ingredients combos, and partly testing the limits and capabilities of this particular emulsifier. I've been using this particular ingredient combo for most of this year and it has been performing beautifully. The best part? It's relatively easy to make.

If you've been following me on Instagram, you've probably already seen a few batches underway. As a matter of fact, I'm sharing this how-to with you due to numerous requests from lovely Insta-folks.

This formula utilizes a COSMOS certified and organic emulsifier (and oil thickening agent) that can be used either hot or cold (which is kind of cool if you ask me).

Today I'm going to show you how I made this as a simple cold process emulsion.
Spoiler alert: there's a reason the title includes 'Slow Beauty'.
