This is a basic Cucumber Cream recipe. It is gentle enough to use on your face, but super nourishing. When finished it does need to be kept in the fridge, or in a very cool dark place. It will spoil if not kept cool because it has fresh cucumber in it.

@Elew Do you have labels for your products? Or just make products just for yourself & family?
I can design your labels for you at no cost, full color, if you wish to market them. I know my way around on the messy FDA website on laws in regards to product labeling requirements. Just sayin'

Thanks Andy :D I used to sell them in the 90s, but now I just make what we need. I think now it is better to share all the recipes and help others learn how to make things themselves...because I know things are going to change. At some point I might make them for trade when we get deeper into the GSM, but hopefully at least 10 others will be doing the same, somewhere.

Plus, I already have shops with my metalwork, and leather and beading...there is just not enough time in the day...and I need to learn to make cheese, and get better at rug hooking...and there are so many new things to learn :)

Update...my girls and I have used this recipe for years...but Nyai tried it this time. He has a thick beard that grows super fast, and he said that while this is great for his skin, it was like dry shaving as far as it really didn't soften the hairs...so to the drawing board for a good men's thick beard shaving cream...updates to come.
