foaming sugar scrubFoaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Natures Garden recently started carrying a new product; whipped soap base.  Needless to say, everyone has been super busy testing away with this new and fun ingredient.  We have created several foaming recipes using this new base, and every single one has been a success.  This new base is everything that we had hoped for and more.

When it came to the category of exfoliation with the whipped soap base, we of course thought of granulated white sugar first.  We wanted to make a foaming sugar scrub that would leave your skin silky smooth.  The gentle exfoliation that sugar would provide was perfect.  The rich creamy lather that the whipped base provides was also a sure fire winner too.  Our goal was that with a little work in creating this foaming sugar scrub recipe, we would be able to provide a great finished product that gently exfoliates and leaves your skin feeling moisturized and velvety smooth.

Here is how to make your very own scented foaming sugar scrub!

Ingredients & Equipment You’ll Need:
Whipped Soap Base
Any Body Safe Fragrance Oil (We selected Yeah for Yummy Fragrance Oil)
Any Fun Soap Colorant (Coloring is optional, but we felt coloring our foaming sugar scrub added an extra element of fun to the mix!)
Sugar
Scale
Bowl
Spoon
Spatula
Hand Held Mixer
Deep Mixing Bowl

Total Recipe Weights
454 grams of Whipped Soap Base
456 grams of Sugar
46 grams Yeah for YUMMY Fragrance Oil
2 drops Fun Soap Colorant -Tomato Red

The Steps

Clean & Sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing this recipe.

Step 1:  Using a scale, weigh out your whipped soap base and place into a bowl.  Set aside. 

Step 2:  In a separate bowl, weigh out your sugar. Then, add 46 grams of fragrance oil and 2 drops Fun Soap Colorant Tomato Red.  Using your spatula, fold the fragrance oil and soap colorant into the sugar until all of the fragrance oil and colorant has been incorporated into the sugar.  Set aside.

Step 3:
Next, using your hand held mixer, start to whip the whipped soap base.  You will notice the batter will start to appear like whipped frosting;  when you have reached this point, turn off the mixer and add the sugar mixture to the whipped soap base.

Step 4:  Once again with the spatula, begin to fold the sugar into the whipped soap base.  You want to thoroughly mix this to incorporate it well.

Step 5:
  Then, turn the mixer on and whip again.  Using your spatula, clean the sides of the bowl to ensure all of the mixture has colorant showing in it.  Continue to mix.

Step 6: When the mixture again looks like whipped frosting stop beating.  Set the bowl aside and allow it to set up for at least 5 minutes.

Step 7: Finally, using a spoon scoop the foaming bath scrub into your 4 oz clear PET jars and lid.

Your foaming sugar scrub is now ready to use!  Enjoy!

You will totally love how great your skin feels after using this foaming sugar scrub recipe.  Not only is this recipe super easy to make, but it takes very little time, and is a great gift to give loved ones this holiday season.  You can scent the foaming sugar scrub in any one of Natures Garden’s fragrance oils that are body safe.  Also, feel free to add the extra element of cuteness by sprinkling your foaming sugar scrub with decorative sprinkles, or layering different colors of the foaming sugar scrub in your jars.  With this recipe, where the fun stops is up to you!
