A few words about unusual cosmetics
Popular in our time, solid hydrophilictiles at the initial stage of their manufacture is a mixture consisting of different types of natural oils: liquid, solid and soft, connected together by means of an emulsifier. Thanks to the last component, all the constituent parts of the mixture do not exfoliate, but are closely connected one to the other. To the oils, various dry additives are mixed depending on the formulation. The most common among them are coffee or milk powder, fruit powder and cosmetic clay. All the components that make up the mixture are heated in a water bath, and then stirring it without stopping until it is cooled. Then the cooled mixture is poured into molds and placed in a refrigerator until it hardens even more. After a few hours, the molds are removed and released from the mixture, which has turned into small solid pieces - tiles. These pieces can be stored at room temperature, and their shape will not be tolerated at all.

Tips for the quality production of tiles
Sometimes, throwing out the finished tiles from the curlyforms on the table, girls and women notice that it turned out with defects. For example, it began to melt too quickly at room temperature, or its components did not mix properly, but break down into 2 layers: frozen oils and a mushy mass of dry additives. It is impossible to eliminate these problems, but next time it will be possible to prevent them. Knowing why these problems arise, you can avoid them in the future. The most common melting of tiles without water is due to the fact that they have cocoa butter in their composition. It is this component that causes the most problems in the production of tiles. The thing is that the cocoa butter, overheating more than 40-45 ° C, begins to melt at lower temperatures. To prevent this from happening, in the production of hydrophilic tiles, not all cocoa butter is added to the mass at once, but only 2 parts. They are heated to dissolve all components and emulsifier, then removed from the water bath and cooled to 27-30 ° C, constantly mixing, then the mixture is injected with cold or slightly warmed-up residual oil, stir again and only then poured into molds. To ensure that the oils mix well with dry additives, do not go grains and do not melt immediately after they are removed from the refrigerator, you can do the following. After dissolving the components in a water bath, they must be poured into a mixing glass and placed on the refrigerator for 4-6 minutes, then removed and beat for 1 minute. After that, the mass should again be cooled in the refrigerator and after 5 minutes repeat the process of its whipping. Each time the mass will appear more homogeneous and dense. The cooling and whipping procedures are repeated 2-3 times, then the essential oils are added to the mass by prescription and poured into molds. After the mixture has solidified, it will have a solid, homogeneous structure and will not melt at room temperature. Hydrophilic tiles - cosmetics of modern times. Thanks to the gentle melting structure, pleasant aroma and an abundance of useful substances, they are fond of many girls and women. And the tremendous effect from their application leads to the fact that more and more representatives of the beautiful half of mankind are dreaming of acquiring such a product or making it with their own hands, especially since making tiles is easy and pleasant.
