Rose Glycerine Cream
We have the French chemist Michel Chevrel to thank for glycerine, named for the greek word glukeros meaning sweet. Glycerine came to its popularity in the late 1800’s where it was touted for its “powerful beautifying effect on the old and young, rendering skin supple and soft.” After making this recipe, we agree. A little goes a long way since it is thick and concentrated. This is an 1884 recipe with only the spermaceti (whale wax) being substituted, melted over open flame and hand-whipped. 2 oz jar
It took some testing since we wanted to keep to the tradition of using only hand tools to mix, but in the end, well worth it. Original recipe was used as both a cold cream and skin cream. We would also suggest using as a deep nourishing night treatment perfect for winter skin. This treasure of a recipe is super emollient and rich. Best for areas such as chest, elbows, knees or any areas that may need extra enriching. A little goes very far.
When tested as a wipe-off cold cream, it takes a while to sink into skin, however, did leave face soft and velvety by morning. Unlike body butter which may leave stains on clothing, the glycerine leaves no trace. Taken from a book titled “Glycerine and its uses in 1865, “…glycerin can be removed without unpleasant friction and does not soil and grease the garments and bed clothing.” Under makeup, this cream was additionally used to adhere powder to the face.
