Homemade Face Cleanser
Source of Recipe
Don't Wrinkle Your Nose at Cold Cream
This recipe makes enough for about fifteen applications. Apply it to your face with your fingertips and then gently wipe it (and your makeup) away with a soft tissue or a cotton ball. Follow with an astringent and moisturizer. It'll keep unrefrigerated for about 30 days.
List of Ingredients
1/8 cup virgin olive oil
1/2 cup pure vegetable shortening
2 Vitamin E capsules, 400 iu each
Measure the olive oil and pure vegetable shortening into a microwave-safe bowl.
Gently heat the mixture in the microwave, using the defrost setting. Check it every ten seconds, stirring the mixture and rotating the bowl until the shortening is melted.
Prick the Vitamin E capsules with a sterilized pin and squeeze the contents into the mixture. (The Vitamin E acts as a preservative.)
Whip the mixture until it's cooled.
Pour into a sterilized glass jar.
