Product Rating: 4.9/5 (As per 28 Customer Reviews)
Free of Parabens, Mineral Oil, Glycol, And Synthetic Colorants
Fortified with Sweet Almond and Jojoba Oil, our luxurious Cream Base offers long-lasting moisture protection that softens even the driest skin types. This new and improved formulation is pH-optimized and designed to be exceptionally skin-friendly for radiant, glowing skin that stays balanced and nourished all day long. The base has a rich, silky texture and has been specifically formulated to be extremely robust. Essential Oils, fragrant oils, botanical extracts, and various raw materials can be added to create and customize your own premium products.
Usage: We recommend the addition of Essential Oils and Fragrances to a maximum of 1-2% of the total volume. Exceeding this amount may destabilize bonds between the ingredients. Over time, this may cause the base to lose some of its luxurious properties, including its viscosity, smooth feel, and rate of absorption.

Rating: NDA, you always amaze me with your products. I have a very difficult time trying to find a moisturizing cream that works on my 52 year old face...lol and this cream base with patchouli has been the best. Thank you again for wonderful products
Rating: I am loving NDA and all their products, this cream is wonderful and I'll make sure I have it around when the cold weather comes. My family have very dry skin and this cream is what we need. I'll never go back to using store bought cream or lotion again. Thank you NDA

Rating: I am SO impressed with this product. It makes an AMAZING base for my tattoo healing cream and other products made with essential oils. I use it on myself, my kids, and my customers love it! Ill continue to buy this and all my other supplies from NDA, never a bad experience!
Rating: This is my first time ordering such a product. I wanted to try to make my own hand cream as just started working with EO's and FO's. this product is amazing. I added a mix of
EO's, and tried the cream. Went on somewhat greasy in beginning, after apx. 30 seconds dried to a smooth silky feel, much like a baby powder feel. My hands feel awesome, much better than any other product I have purchased. This is my new favorite and will be testing samples on friends and use as gifts. Thanks for the great product.
Rating: This cream base is great, good moisturizing properties, very thick, I add some vit E and a bit more jojoba clear to thin it out a bit. Takes Fo's and EO's very well. Easy to work with.

Rating: This cream is amazing and at an amazing price. It is very thick so it's perfect for adding eso. However I do use it alone and love it as well. Its thick but absorbs easily into the skin, within 30 secs of applying your skin feels hydrated with no sign of greasy residue.

Rating: Excellent base ! Silky and Smooth.Takes essential/carrier oils beautifully. Added NDA collagen for a superior anti wrinkle treatment.
By:Melissa, Ottawa, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I made a fantastic facial moisture "pudding" by adding some cucumber extract pwd & distilled water. It's good for many skin types & has a toning/lift feel on the face. My clients favorite moisturizer!
Rating: This is an Excellent cream! Leaves skin very soft and smooth while absorbing quickly. Takes scent very well and everyone I gave samples to LOVED it! I like the thickness of this cream. With winter coming a lot of people want something a bit more substantial and this fits the bill. I can use this as stand alone or add small amounts of other oils to it and it holds up well.
By:Evelyn, North Olmsted, Ohio Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 18-Aug-2008
Rating: I love this base! I just add eos and other carrier oils and it is perfect!
Works great on its own as well.

Rating: I'm just starting out actually making my creams, but using this base was a breeze. I added Rosemary EO I gave samples to a few of my coworker to get their feedback and one of my coworkers have already put in an order. I love the cream. It absorbs wonderfully and the non-greasy feels is an added bonus. This is an exceptional cream base and their is absolutely nothing that I would change about it. Thanks alot!!!!

Rating: Amazing product! Not greasy at all and leaves skin really soft!
By:Genevieve, Blainville, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This jojoba cream is ultra thick and ultra luxurious...I love it for many reasons..but the most important is the quality of the product..it is very thick but I think that is wonderful because it allows you to add oils, extracts, hydrosols, eo's, etc allowing you to formulate a variety of fabulous creations..in the summer months I add hydrosols for a lighter feel and winter months I add oils for a heavy body butter feel...you won't regret this purchase and your clients will be begging for more! I sell out every time...NDA rocks!

Rating: That's a wonderful product.It leaves the skin smooth and not oily.I added : rosewood EO , myrtle EO and rose floral water.....I really love it!!!I am also making some for my friends now!
By:Sabine, Winnipeg, Manitoba Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I absolutely love this cream base. I am brand new to this and making my own cream with this base and some essential oils was a breeze. It is very rich and I used aloe vera juice to water it down a bit. I highly recomend it especially to all of you out there like me who don't quite know a lot about making creams!
By:Gordana, Nanaimo, British Columbia Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is the third type of body-moisturizing product that I have tried from ND. My problem so far is that the body butter and lotion have been thicker than I have wanted and I found them hard to blend. I was surpised when this came in a tub instead of a bottle, but that prompted me to put it in the boston plastic jar instead of a bottle. I found this very easy to blend with. Then I was delighted by using it. It goes on light, absorbs quickly, and leaves my skin silky for a full day, which is practically a miracle in the Arizona summer. I happened to use a FO instead of an EO with it, so I don't know if it affected the lingering effects of the scent, but the scent lasts all day too! May be my favorite ND discovery, yet!
By:Gretchen, Phoenix, Arizona Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 05-Jul-2008
Rating: I have always been very limited in my use of this cream base. Only recently did I branch out beyond therapeutic use. I used the base with fragrant oil and some silk powder. My clients raved for weeks. The silk powder is a perfect addition to the base- gives a rich luxurious feel. I give it five stars.
Rating: At first, I put few drops of rosewood and cedarwood and I wasn\'t satisfied with the scent and I just need to put some more to make it my own. But when I added few amount of Rose Geranium Floral Water and strawberry fruit extract, I can\'t beleive that I made my very own cream.. I love it!!
I also been using this on my face and the result is amazing especially this winter season. I have to see how it will go on my face on summer. Love this product so much.
By:Ester, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: It is cold here this winter in New York and the lotions I used before are just enough. It is good lotion to use in cold and dry weather. It feels thick but left skin feel smooth. All said and done, it is a good protective body and facial lotion.
By:Shaoli, Stony Point, New York
Date: Loyal Customer Since: 19-Dec-2008
Rating: Very thick but this allows you to add a lot of E.O's which I love. And I recommend adding a floral water to it if you like it a bit thinner. For really dry skin I just use it straight up. Anyway you look at it this is a wonderful lotion is far superior to any other I have tried. Great price too!
By:Cherie, Toronto, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: I have been purchasing bases from many different companies and experimenting. When tested by family, friends and co-workers, this base won every time as the favorite. Most of the time it has been a landslide victory. In my recent blind test, it even beat the Ultra Premium Cream. (The Ultra Premium won every time though, when the testers were given the ingredient listing with each product.) I will be back again and again for more - because I keep running out! Keep up the good work!!
Rating: I love the cream because it is thick and when E.O's are added it becomes even better!!
My clients love it and are addicted.
By:Marianne, Winona, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This is a wonderful base at a perfect price. You can add you extracts or EO's and it works perfectly! My customers love this product and are always complimenting me on its feel. My unscented customers also love it!

Rating: I use to work with the formula without almond oil and just loved it. I feel it is too bad NDA is not carrying it anymore, since I have clients allergic to nuts. Also, I work with small children and use this wonderful cream to introduce them to aroma. Too bad I will have to find another product without the almond oil.
By:Brigitte, Québec, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 09-Nov-2005
Rating: This base is AMAZING ... I made hand and body creams with New Directions Essential Oils for all my friends and family for Christmas and people have not stopped talking about this AMAZING lotion!
Of course adding the right essential oils does help but everyone thinks this is the creamiest and most moisturizing lotion they have used ever!
I especially love adding rosemary and mint essential oils for rough elbows and feet or try tea tree and carrot essential oil for especially dry skin!
Used alone this cream base healed broken skin on both my elbows and my husbands! His were rough and dry from working in the garage and mine looked red and sore like carpet burns. After ONE APPLICATION within a few hours BOTH of us had soft supple skin on our elbows!
I will continue to keep a supply of this cream base!
Also works great for facial scrubs and exfoilants as well when soap product is added!
By:Joely, Topeka, Kansas Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 15-Nov-2006
Rating: Great Cream if you're looking for something very thick. I use this one when I need something that isn't going to absorb as quickly, but will also leave a nice soft feeling as it does absorb. A little thicker than I was expecting though, this one requires a pump or an upside down bottle as it is very viscous.
