How to Make Skin-Firming Gel


If you make your own skin-firming gel, you can be assured that all of the ingredients are fresh and natural. You can use skin-firming gel in the morning or as a night cream, and it works beautifully under makeup.

Things You'll Need

  • 10 oz. distilled water
  • 5 oz. glycerin
  • 1 oz. emulsifying wax
  • 7 oz. CroThix thickener
  • 7 oz. jojoba or tea tree oil
  • 16 oz. phenonip or germaben
  • ½ oz. of essential oils of your choice
  • Sterile container
  • Place the emulsifying wax, CroThix thickener and jojoba or tea tree oil, phenonip or germaben and essential oils in a small saucepan over low heat until the mixture is thoroughly melted.

  • Heat the water and glycerin in a separate saucepan over medium heat until the mixture reaches 170 degrees.

  • Stir the oil mixture into the distilled water and glycerin mixture in a microwave-proof bowl.

  • Put the bowl into the microwave for 30 seconds and immediately pour the mixture into a blender container. Blend briefly until the mixture turns white and creamy.

  • Store the mixture in a sterile container.

Tips & Warnings

  • CroThix is a convenient thickener that can be purchased at craft shops that carry soap making supplies. It is believed to be effective as a skin firmer.
  • If the skin-firming gel seems too thick, increase the amount of distilled water.
  • Try adding a small amount of blue chamomile essential oil to the mixture for a lovely blue color and a calming scent.
