Introductión: Moringa oleifera is a plant with well-known properties and for that reason has prestige and recognition in the scientific community. The seed oil has as main features have excellent emollient power and high oxidation stability that make it a strong candidate in the cosmetics industry. This work aims to formulate with the M. oleifera oil a nourishing cream for daily use for all skin types. Material and Methods: In order to determine the best formulation were designed four formulations with different concentrations of oil and coded CNM1, CNM2, CNM3 and CNM4. The cosmetic product has two phases, the aqueous phase consisting of distilled water; the oil phase by: isopropyl myristate, ethoxylated alcohol, mineral oil, cetyl alcohol, propyl and methyl paraben, and fragrance. To check the reliability of the formulation were performed accelerated stability studies, where the samples were placed in rack and subjected to six cycles (one cycle every 12days) heating of 45 ± 20°C and cooling to -5 ± 20°C and the organoleptic and physicochemical tests were conducted. Results and Conclusions: The tests were performed only in the CNM3, the CNM2 and CNM4 samples were discarded because total phase separation, CNM1 for being very inconsistent. Shelf-life stability study: It was noted that the formulation vials were stable (in relation to its color, odor, skin and extensibility in appearance) at room temperature (25 °C) for 12 days. Accelerated stability study: It was observed that the formulations had little variation in odor, color. The mixture remained homogeneous. The skin extensibility not changes. With respect to the pH variation it is observed increases as the temperature increases and decreases when temperature decreases, maintaining a stable range 6 to 8.
