Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe

Activated Charcoal Scrub RecipeAnd so my obsession with activated charcoal continues.  Our next activated charcoal bath and body recipe is an activated charcoal scrub recipe.  This homemade scrub recipe includes Natures Garden’s activated charcoal powder, shea butter, coconut oil and jojoba oil just to name a few ingredients.  Let me tell you this emulsified sugar scrub recipe is fantastic.  It left my skin feeling soft and silky!  I will be making this one again for sure.

Now, if you haven’t made your own emulsified scrub before, no worries, I will walk you through each step!  You might be asking yourself, what is an emulsified scrub?  How is it different from a regular sugar scrub?  Well, an emulsified sugar scrub contains, in this case, Natures Garden’s traditional emulsifying wax.  This ingredient will emulsify, or mix, the oils with the sugar without any separation.  Have you ever made a scrub only to later have the oil separate out and sit at the top of the jar?  This is likely to happen without an emulsifier in the mix.  This tutorial will show you exactly how to avoid that problem.  In addition, it has activated charcoal included.  Activated charcoal is known to be a fabulous detoxifying agent.  It is currently my favorite ingredient to add when creating handmade soap and cosmetic recipes.

Activated Charcoal Scrub Recipe Before You Begin

Before you begin, you will want to prepare your supplies and equipment.  Clean and sanitize your work area, all of your packaging material, and utensils you will be using.  Additionally, you will want to wear an apron, a hairnet, and gloves when preparing this activated charcoal recipe.  Also, go ahead and melt your coconut oil 76.  Coconut oil will be in a solid state at temperatures above 76 degrees but will be liquid below that temperature.  So, it will be pretty easy to melt it.  Place your bottle of coconut oil in a bowl of warm tap water.

First, you will need your scale.  Then, with you scale set to grams, weigh out 128 grams of your macadamia nut oil, 83 grams of shea butter, 70 grams mango butter, 63 grams emulsifying wax traditional, 23 grams jojoba oil, and 14 grams of white beeswax pastilles.  Then, use a double boiler to melt the oils, butters, and waxes.  While you are waiting for them to melt move to the next step.

You will once again need your scale and a large mixing bowl.  Also, you will need the sugar.  Next, weigh out 765 grams of white granulated sugar.  Go ahead and set this aside for the moment.  You will need it in a future step.

Now, we will prepare the activated charcoal.  Before we add the activated charcoal to the scrub, we are going to add vegetable glycerin.  This will help your charcoal powder disperse evenly throughout the scrub without clumping.  So, use your scale to weigh out 6 grams of activated charcoal.  Then, add 16 grams of vegetable glycerin.  Mix the ingredients until you have a smooth paste like consistency.  Also, set this off to the side, we will come back to it.

Next, once the oils have melted, remove them from the heat.  Then, let the temperature drop a bit.  You want the temperature of the oils to come down to between 120 degrees Fahrenheit to 140 degrees Fahrenheit.  Then, add 6 grams of your Optiphen Preservative.  Mix well to incorporate the Optiphen.  I should note, the temperature is extremely important for this step.  If it is above 140 degrees Fahrenheit, you will burn off the preservative. If it is below 120 degrees, the preservative will separate from the scrub.

Then, add 17 grams of arrowroot powder.  Mix the arrowroot powder into the oils thoroughly.  Next, add 6 grams Vitamin E Oil, 20 grams of Black Linen and Amber Fragrance Oil.  Again, stir to incorporate all of the ingredients.

Now, we will put everything together.  You will need the bowl containing the sugar.  Slowly pour the oils into the bowl of sugar.  Use a spatula to mix the sugar and oils.

Once they are mixed together, add the activated charcoal you prepared earlier.  Then, stir the activated charcoal into the mixture.  Finally, allow the scrub to come to room temperature before moving on to the next step.  The activated charcoal scrub will thicken as it cools.

Lastly, we will be adding the scrub to the jars.  You will need four of your 8 ounce black double wall jars.  In addition, you will need four black dome lids 89/400.  Use a spatula or spoon to scoop the scrub into the 8 ounce jars.  Then, place a black dome lid on top of each jar.

 

 

Finally, when using your scrub, scoop a small amount of the activated charcoal scrub out of the jar.  Then, apply it to your face and use your fingers to scrub away.  Then, simply rinse the scrub off with warm water and a washcloth.  We hope that you enjoy Natures Garden’s activated charcoal scrub recipe.  For even more cosmetic, soap, and candle recipes, check out our recipe box.  Also, let us know what you have been up to!  Post pics of your handmade projects on our Facebook page.  You can also tag us on Instagram or Twitter @ngscents.
