The unique cream texture will reshape itself after use, always offering the consumer a smooth surface.

  1. Homogenize Phase A in the main vessel and start to heat to 75-80°C
  2. At 50°C, sprinkle in Phase B (premixed at RT) and mix while heating until viscosity slightly increases
  3. In a side beaker prepare Phase D, heat to 75-80°C until homogeneous
  4. At 75°C, add Phase C in the main vessel and mix until homogeneous
  5. At 75°C, add Phase D while homogenizing. The emulsion should be homogeneous.
