Prepare a water bath by bringing 1 inch of water to a simmer on medium-low heat in a sauté pan.
In a heat resistant beaker, weigh out the water phase and add it to the water bath. Repeat this in a different beaker with the heated oil phase.
After 20 minutes in the water bath, your oil phase should be fully melted and you can now remove both beakers from the water bath.
Due to evaporation, your water phase will have lost a few grams, so you will need to add that back by putting your heated oil phase beaker on the scale, taring/clearing the scale, then pouring the water phase into the oil phase. The total amount of the water phase should be 27.25g, if this is not the case, pour hot distilled water into your mixture to bring it to 27.25g. Mix with milk frother or milk forther attachment for 1-2 minutes.
After mixing, slowly stir in rose clay and kaolin clay.
When your mixture is under 140 degrees Fahrenheit add optiphen.
Your mask will begin to thicken as it cools. I typically scoop mine into a small glass jar about 2-4 hours after I have finished making it.
