Set up a water bath and place both the water and oil containers into a pan of simmering water. You want to melt and heat them through but do not allow them to boil.
Once the oil has melted and heated, remove both the oil and water containers from the heat.
Pour the colored pigments into the warm oils, then stir until well combined. You will need to be quick with this as you don’t want the waxes to start to harden.
Once the colors have been mixed with the oils it’s time to add the warmed water blend to it. When you first start to mix them they may try to separate. I find it best to whisk briskly with a mini whisk. As the foundation cools it will start to thicken so that it’s a similar texture to a lotion.
Once the foundation has cooled below 40c we can mix in the vitamin E and the preservative.
0.5 grams Vitamin E Oil, 0.5 grams Preservative
Transfer the foundation into a serum or suitable squeezy container using a spatula or syringe.
