Suave used to have one called Suave water rinsable cold cream. But like most perfect cosmetic products it's been discontinued./sigh

So, I'm going to see if I can make something resembling it. If anyone has a recipe for an oil free cold cream that I can also use on my eyes please let me know.

I have found some recipes but they all call for jojoba or almond oil. Anywho, any tips would be much appreciated.

Beru, I am puzzled. By definition, a "cream", implies that the product is an emulsion, which is very simply the combination of an aqueous solution and oil, combined by an emulsifier. How could they have labelled the product a "cream" and still claimed that it was "oil-free"?

What were the specific ingredients of that "oil-free" cream to support the "oil-free" claim?

And in relation to your skin, are you absolutely intolerant of or allergic to any kind of oil at all?

Thanks for the reply! :)Well, I think I'm assuming it was oil free as I didn't read the word "oil" on the ingredients. The consistency wasn't thick like ponds it was more whipped...it reminded me of Alpha Hydrox's 12% souffle, maybe a wee bit thicker.

As for being allergic, I'm not but I have a problem with blackheads and oily skin. Thus, I'm very paranoid about putting oil based(even non clogging)products on my face.

I guess I'm looking for an "emulsion" that is oil free, if one even exist. OR an emulsion that rinses clean with water with out leaving a film.

I did find this ingredient Propylene Glycol in a few "oil free" type facial creams which is an emulsion, but I'm still reading up on it.

It's not clear to me whether you are seeking a leave-on moisturiser, or a creamy facial cleanser.

If comedogenicity is a concern for you, there is a website called zerozits dot com, or you can do a google search on "acne detective" to get there. They have a list of typical skincare ingredients with comedogenicity and irritancy ratings.

PLEASE NOTE I do not use any of the products plugged on this website. I am proud to say I make all of my own skincare.

In the main, I tend to agree with the "acne detective" listing and categorisation of raw materials, except for the "botanicals" identified as algae extract, red algae and carageenan. Having tried these personally, I don't believe they are comedogenic at all.

Thanks so much for the link. I'm looking to make a cream type cleanser for removing face makeup and eye makeup.

Hi Beru,

The ability to be "rinseable" has nothing to do with any oils that might be in the cream ... but rather the emulsifiers that are in it.

If you have an oil mixed with an emulsifier [say, lecithin] ... then the oil has the ability to rinse off because the emulsifier mixes oil and water.

So ... you could use any oil ... which is the very best thing to clean off makeup ... and put an emulsifier in it ... and providing you have enough emulsifier in there, it should rinse away cleanly, and it shouldn't leave any "film".

HTH

Mary

What Mary said.

You can try Polysorbate 80, which is a very inexpensive emulsifier. I have made a massage oil for my mother which is 15% Polysorbate 80 and 85% miscellaneous oils - washes off with water and leaves her skin soft and smooth.

Jojoba oil and squalane are the least comedogenic emollients that I know of. For a DIY makeup remover, you can try mixing the oil(s) of your choice with Polysorbate 80, tweaking the PS80 from between 10% to 20% until you achieve the level of wash-off that you desire.
