INGREDIENTS

PARAFFINUM LIQUIDUM (MINERAL OIL), PEG-30 LANOLIN, CETEARYL ALCOHOL, BIS-DIGLYCERYL POLYACYLADIPATE-2, ALUMINUM STEARATE, THEOBROMA CACAO (COCOA) SEED BUTTER, PEG-75 LANOLIN, PHENOXYETHANOL, EUGENIA CARYOPHYLLUS (CLOVE) LEAF OIL, HUMULUS LUPULUS (HOPS) OIL, CHAMOMILLA RECUTITA (MATRICARIA) FLOWER OIL, EUCALYPTUS GLOBULUS LEAF OIL, BHT.

I know BHT is an anti-oxident, probably included to help retard rancidity of the cream. The other three... wow. Google searches for them turn up info that makes me wonder why in the world these ingredients are included in a face cream. All three of them are classified as skin irritants, especially around the mouth and eyes.

When I googled, it looks like the first is a conditioning ingredient/emollient. The second is probably thickens or thins the cream, and the last is a preservative.

Here are some links to lotion-making suppliers that may carry these ingredients:

http://www.theherbarie.com/
https://www.makingcosmetics.com/
http://www.ingredientstodiefor.com/
http://www.lotioncrafter.com/

Google Egyptian Magic Cream, DIY for a recipe.
ETA: Here's two more. Good recipes/formulas but products + shipping is expensive compared to other suppliers, so you may want to do some comparison shopping for ingredients.
