As you may already know, Argan Oil works perfectly well, by itself, for the eye area. But if you like to use creams, know that nothing is more effective or safe than an organic homemade one, that has not been diluted with water, or processed by chemicals.
There are several reasons that choosing to invest in homemade skin products is the right choice :
Over the counter store products contain several severe chemicals that clog pores and can potentially damage skin. They all claim to have the elixir of youth in their eye treatment creams, gels or serums which came at a price both financially and possibly with harmful side effects.
And, the main ingredient inside store bought skin cream is water. In order to stop any mold growth in by the water base, paraben preservatives are added to the product. The paraben helps to preserve the cream and lengthen its shelf life. These parabens are known to cause both cancer and reproductive harm!
I chose Argan Oil, Plum Oil and Jojoba Oil. These ingredients are power houses in terms of skin benefits, they’re loaded with vitamin E which contains a multitude of antioxidants that protect and repair the skin.
I also added an emulsifying wax, that will act as a stabilizer and thickener. We all know the frustration to be found when the water and oil in our creations separate, emulsifying wax helps rid us of this persistent problem.
This eye cream is a fantastic natural product that is 100% chemical, toxin and synthetic fragrance free. What you’ll need:
- 1 Table spoon Argan Oil
- 1 Table spoon Jojoba Oil
- 1 Table spoon Plum Oil
- 1/2 Table spoon emulsifying wax
Fill in a pot with couple inches of water, and heat until the water boils. Combine Argan Oil, Plum Oil, Jojoba Oil and the emulsifying wax in a small bowl, put the bowl in the pot (Bain-marie).
Mix together until they’re blended (About 3min), set aside and let it cool.
When firm, dap the mixture into a jar and you’re ready for application
Say bye to store bought creams altogether!
