Dr. Sivak's Notes:

Canvas Base Cream is a rich moisturizer with hyaluronic acid and jojoba, avocado, sweet almond, and sesame oils.

This outstanding moisturizer, though rich, is not heavy and is suitable for acne sufferers.

Customize this cream with our world class cream and water soluble actives to create a skin care product to suit your specific needs.

Product Style Ready to Use     Do It Yourself    

Apply the desired amount of cream to the affected areas as needed to moisturize the skin. You can add select actives to create your own custom cream.


Canvas Base Cream is great for most skin types, but can be thinned using our Sea Kelp Coral if you have very oily skin or active acne lesions. If you have dry skin, we recommend our European Cream. If you are formulating for the first time, you might try our Formulation for Beginners Kit.

    My Holy Grail cream! In all it's basic glory. This cream has been with me for over 6 years in many different formulations, and in a pinch has been used plain.I have eczema-prone skin and I now have mature skin as well (early 40s) and it had not been easy to find anything that created a non-oily lipid barrier to the elements especially as I live in the Northeast U.S. and the weather is polluted and can be humid or blustery cold. Now I make a batch adapted semi-yearly for cold and hot. I like knowing what is in my cream, and this product is going to be with me forever. I've told many of my friends about this to pass the good news along, and hear reports that they love this cream too. Of course, they all have different kinds of skin and this cream still works for them!

    I really like all of the Canvas creams available from SAS. I especially like that they don't have any of the sea kelp bioferment in them because I think my skin does not react well to that in many of SAS other products. The price for this cream is great too and it can be used "as is" if you don't feel like buying all the extras (of course, you also don't get all the benefits of the 'extras' but it still moisturizes well!!) Great product!!

    This cream is amazing. Fantastic at any price really. It's non-irritating, blends easily with other ingredients such as Vit E, or Vit A, and has a nice, soothing quality I really love. Two thumbs from me about this item.

    This cream is VERY LIGHT with a nice fresh scent, it smells very clean. I would say this is best for oily skin, as my normal skin just sucks it up instantly.

    This is a very nice cream that does feel good on oily skin. I mixed some Coleus Forskohlii Oil into it and liked the consistency even better.

    A good basic cream, it's got substance but not rich or greasy. I like using it in the morning and at night layered over the ELS serum. No scent noticed.

    I bought canvas cream to share w/ my oldest son. This is a good basic formulation. I also found that canvas cream makes a great non-greasy makeup primer & is far cheaper than teh "chafing" gel available, w/ canvas cream breaking down to $1.75 an oz.

    Love love love! This cream is so light, perfect for my oily/acne prone skin. Not greasy at all, and doesn't break me out. And such a great bargain! I loved it so much I bought one for my boyfriend too (he has dry/normal skin).
