This is a cold mix formula and heating is not recommended. Simply add your scent or additives directly to the base at room temp by stirring with a spatula or machine mixing. This product can be warmed to a max of 122F if you choose to add butters, though. A double boiler is recommended to prevent burning. Since the product is really thick, constant stirring would be needed to evenly distribute the heat. The color and consistency will change from white creamy to opaque/hazy thick gel and it could take a from a couple hours to a few days to go back to the creamy white consistency (if at all, depending on what was added). The addition of any ingredients will change the final product and testing in small batches is recommended.

This is a thick, creamy cleanser that is preferably packaged in a jar.

"Absolutely a Classy Facial Wash/Shaving lotion"
COMMENTS:  This 'Botanical Facial Cleanser' is thicker than I would like it to be. The consistency is that of a thick shaving cream, which to some is a plus. I would prefer a thinner option. But I have made this formula work by adding additional fluids to make the consistency I like. This facial cleanser is the best I have used for DIY products! I have customers who have sensitive skin and they have had no issues! I love the way my skin feels even one hour after use, my skin feels even more hydrated! How can that happen?! It is amazing! I love having the option to color it and using the essential oils or FOs of my choice. I have also used the jojoba beads to give it a little scrub feel and it is amazing! Thank you so much for this amazing formula! I highly recommend it!

"Trusted Review..."
COMMENTS:  This base is OUTSTANDING! I was super picky about this base "passing the test", so I tested it on the world's most sensitive skin first... AKA: MY face lol! This applies as smooth & creamy as a lotion, then gently lathers up & rinses off beautifully with warm water (NO "raccoon eyes"!). Skin is left looking bright & feeling thoroughly cleansed, but SOFT! I purposely skipped the moisturizer to see how tight or uncomfortable this cleanser would leave my skin, and it didn't... AT ALL! It really needs nothing more to be an A++ product, but a little green tea extract & a whisper of Elements' "Sparkling Green Tea" FO took this formulation to perfection for me! I hope Elements always always always keeps this base available because I will most definitely be back for more! I love that there's lemon peel in this also... Gives the skin brightening results instantly, and the addition of this base's other lovely botanicals really makes it something special! My sensitive, picky skin LOVES it!

COMMENTS:  This is THE best cleanser I have ever used. I have super sensitive and dry skin but this has been a game changer. It cleans without drying and does not irritate my skin. I used to have redness and dry patches but this has changed my facial skin completely. Please don't ever stop making this.

COMMENTS:  Love LOVE this base. I used green tea powder and Elements' "Sparkling Green Tea" and it is simply spectacular. No moisturizer after washing to see how it left my skin. (I have VERY dry skin.) I was surprised at how soft and supple my face felt afterwards... even an hour later I did not feel the need to apply moisturizer. Finally broke down and got a few testers, everyone loves it. Will most certainly be part of my skin regimen from now on.
