Five Bath Salt RecipesFive Bath Salt Recipes

We are excited to be sharing five new bath salt recipes with you all today! Each of these bath salts use only a few ingredients and they have very simple steps to follow along with. These are a fun way to incorporate natural flowers, herbs, and powders into your handcrafted recipes. The herbal ingredients we chose to use contain a lot of benefits and are sure to soothe you and your skin during bath time. We also use these herbs from Natures Garden to make massage oil, bath melts, and sugar scrubs. Many other recipes use our powders as well, including facial masks, bath bombs, and cold process soap. You can also check out some of our soap making recipes to make your own soaps too. Now we can get started on making these five bath salt recipes!

The Benefits of Using a Bath Salt Recipe

If you have never used a bath salt before in your bath, then we will give you benefits that bath salts can provide to you. There are many natural minerals that are used in bath salts, and one of the benefits that you can get from using these is to draw out impurities from your skin. Also, if you are always working in outdoor environments, there are certain bath salts that you can make that will draw out different toxins, oil, and dirt from your skin. This will leave you with a sense of always feeling squeaky clean after every use. If you also have issues with blood circulation and are always feeling drained, then some bath salts can help circulate blood through your body.

Different Herbs that you Can Use in Your Bath Salt Recipe

Your options aren’t limited when it comes to the number of different herbs that you can use with your bath salts. Each herb contains its own share of benefits, and there are many available for you to use. One of the more popular herbs that you can use in your bath salts is lavender. Lavender, when used in bath salts, has been known to remove nervous tension, and relax the user. Another herb that can be used is rose petals. Rose petals have a natural oil that is secreted in warm water that keeps skin moisturized, soft, and glowing. There are many other herbs you can use and try to experiment with to create your own bath bomb recipe!

This first recipe that will be showing you is meant to keep your skin feeling smooth and silky after taking a bath. The pink salt bubble bath recipe is wonderful.

  3. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate- SLSA
  4. Hyacinth Fragrance Oil

  6. White Straight Smooth Lid 70/400

Himalayan pink salt is known for its purity and for having so many minerals. There are also a lot of medical benefits believed to be associated with this salt. In this industry, it is commonly added to facial scrubs, salt scrubs, and bath bombs, such as with our Sangria Shimmer Bath Bomb. SLSA is a natural surfactant that provides plenty of foam and lather to cosmetic products, which are simply the perfect qualities to have for any bath. This pink salt bubble bath recipe is layered with one portion of Himalayan salt and the other portion a mix of Epsom salt and SLSA, each scented with Hyacinth fragrance oil.

One of the main components of the floral bath salts recipe is roses. Roses are used all of the time in cosmetic products, soap, lotion, potpourri, and even in lip balms. They are so widely used since they are thought to induce relaxation, as well as for having anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties. We mentioned fillable teabags in the ingredients because of the flowers in these bath salts. Some people prefer to use a teabag with recipes like this in order to avoid herbs going down their drain. This is optional and is completely up to your personal preference. Another unique feature about this bath salt recipe is that it also uses whole lavender flowers. As mentioned above, lavender flowers can be used to reduce anxiety and induce a calming sensation for you. So, if you are ever stressed, then this bath salt recipe is perfect for soothing your mind.

Once again, you can use a fillable tea bag to put the chamomile and calendula flowers so they do not go down your drain. An amazing benefit of using chamomile flowers in your bath salt is that it contains many great antioxidants. These antioxidants will help with protecting your skin from any external free radicals.

We hope that you enjoyed following along with us and learning how to make these five bath salt recipes!

As you can see, many of these bath salts contain their own unique colors and traits.

It’s not only as fun making these bath salt recipes, but you will enjoy soaking in them too, and we hope you enjoy these recipes!

Unique Uses for your Everyday Herbs

Since many of these bath salt recipes use herbs, here we are going to talk about many other unique uses for herbs that you can use for yourself. This article called “12 Unusual and Interesting Uses For Herbs” mentions different ways that you can use herbs, and some of them you probably haven’t ever heard of. Oregano is a common household herb that many people always use in their cooking, but little did they know it can be used to combat the common cold. The oil in oregano leaves can aid in the process of clearing your sinuses. Also, this oil has been known to aid in reducing inflammation. Also, if you always have a tendency to suffer from headaches, then peppermint is the right choice for you.

How Do You Make A Bubble Bar?

How Do You Make a Bubble Bar?How Do You Make A Bubble Bar?

If you love to take relaxing bubble baths, this blog is for you! Baths can be the best thing and just what you need after a  long day at work. If you are looking for some new products for your bath routine, we can definitely help you out. We at Natures Garden carry every ingredient you could possibly need to make all of the bath products you could ever want! We also come up with and share our own recipes that can be found on our website page. One of our biggest markets is for bath and body items. Therefore, we have endless recipes which cater specifically to that. There are bath bomb recipes, bath salts recipes, body scrub recipes, lotions, make up, and our topic in today’s blog, bubble bar recipes.

The market is seriously growing out there with people who want to make their own cosmetics and stuff to use in the bath. With the ingredients that we sell, the recipes we have shared, and the classes that we offer, it is entirely possible. In this blog, we are going to be answering a popular question: How Do You Make A Bubble Bar? These are great to use in the bath, they are amazing for the skin, and are simple to make. Even if you are a beginner to this industry or you just want to try something new, you can create bubble bars too!

Wet Ingredients in a Bubble Bar

Similarly to bath bombs, there are quite a bit of ingredients that are needed to make bubble bars. When making this type of recipe, we find it helpful to split the ingredients up. We like to do this by separating everything we need into the wet ingredients and the dry ingredients. The wet portion of most bubble bar recipes will usually include vegetable glycerin, any colorants used, and some fragrance oil. Before adding in fragrance oil, not just to bubble bars, but with any home made body product, one thing is super important to remember. You should always ensure that the fragrance oil you are using is body safe and can be used in your products. There are some that unfortunately can not be used to make products like body scrubs, body lotions, body wash, etc. due to some elements in them. To find out whether or not they are, you should always perform your own testing with something like this. Trusting what some companies advertise and claim about their merchandise may not always be a good idea.

Vegetable glycerin gets added to bubble bars because it is a humectant, which means it draws moisture to the surfaces of the skin. This is desirable in any bath product. We add different dyes to these as well to give them some color. Natures Garden has a ton of soap colorants, including Neon Pink, Ultramarine Blue, and Yellow Oxide. The last wet ingredient added into bubble bars is the fragrance oil. Out of the more than 800 fragrance oils that we carry, only 29 of them are not safe to be used in body products.

Dry Ingredients in a Bubble Bar

Now, we will talk about the dry ingredients. Most bubble bar recipes use the same common dry powders. Depending on the specific recipe, some of these can be swapped out with another powder, or be completely left out. The dry ingredients include baking soda, cream of tartar, corn starch, xanthum gum, and the surfactant that you choose to use. We will explain more about what surfactants are in a little bit.

Baking soda is a common house held item that is commonly added to cosmetic recipes. This will add a couple of different elements to your bubble bars. It has some properties in it that cleanse and help to make your skin feel very soft. The cream of tartar acts as a stabilizer in bubble bars, which allows for all of the other ingredients to come together and adhere in a formula. It also helps to make them fluffy and airy.

Corn starch is another common ingredient that is added to cosmetic recipes. This is because it can relieve irritations to the skin and makes the skin feel great. When this is put in bubble bars and bath bombs, it helps to give softness and silkiness to the skin. Finally, there is xanthum gum. This is an all natural thickener that is often used in bath gel, bubble bath, and liquid soap. It thickens your cosmetic products and keeps them together. You might want to add some other dry ingredients to your cosmetic recipes as well. Natures Garden sells plenty of fresh herbs that we are always incorporating into different products. You could also add extra powders, such as vanilla or cocoa.

SLSA vs. SCI

The last dry ingredient that you will need to make a bubble bar is a surfactant. At Natures Garden, we carry a couple of surface acting agents, which are commonly known as surfactants. These help bath products like bath bombs and bubble bars to create bubbles and foam when they react with the water in the bath. The ones that we have are Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA) and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI). SLSA is derived naturally, it is gentle, and can be used on all types of skin. This surfactant works nicely for people who have sensitive skin and skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, and chronic acne problems. People with dry skin also really enjoy this in their products because it can help make their skin feel hydrated. SLSA can be added into multiple cosmetic recipes, and when it is, it helps create amazing lather and foam, which softens the skin. SCI is also very gentle and creates great foam too. It helps cleanse the skin and will make your skin feel silky, softened, and smooth.

One of the classes that we have uploaded to our website is called Surfactants in Cosmetics. This is a very helpful tool that can be easily referred to when you need some information. If you are a beginner, you might like to take a look at this since it goes into much more detail about surfactants. It mentions different types, such as anionic, amphoteric, cationic, and nonionic. This class also includes a list of some of the more common surfactants used, offering nearly 20 of them to choose from.

Bubble Bar Safety Gear

If you are learning how to make a bubble bar, there are a few important things to keep in mind. Another thing we want to mention is to wear safety gear when preparing bubble bars. This is mostly only necessary when preparing the dry ingredients. When working with dry powders, especially when it is multiple, a lot of that can get released into the air.

First, we suggest wearing a safety face mask. This will prevent the loose powders that flow into the air from getting in your face. Along with this, safety goggles might be a good option to wear. They can prevent the loose powders, like baking soda, from wafting into your eyes. Putting on gloves is great too because you will be working with your hands to mix the ingredients together. Wearing an apron is also a good idea for recipes like this one.

Benefits of Bubble Bars

There are elements of bubble bars that people tend to really enjoy. The surface acting agents certainly contribute to these benefits. Most people who like to take baths also like them to have a lot of bubbles. Due to ingredients like SLSA, SCI, SLS, etc., your bubble baths will never be the same! These create a ton of lather, they have great foaming qualities, and they are beneficial for the skin. As we mentioned, one reason these are added into bubble bars is to make your skin feel amazing. Soft, silky skin is a feeling that cannot be beat. Another great thing about them is that you can create any shape you want. As long as you have a mold for it, your bubble bars could be shaped like candy, donuts, hearts, four leaf clovers, and more!

How Bubble Bars Are Different Than Bath Bombs

A common question that we receive from customers and beginners is how are bubble bars different than bath bombs? One of the biggest differences between them is how they affect your bath. Traditional bath bombs are made with baking soda and citric acid. When these two are combined, they create a chemical reaction. This is what causes them to fizz up when they hit your bath water. All you have to do with bath bombs are plop them into the water and this will activate the chemical reaction.

Bubble bars on the other hand are created for a different purpose. As opposed to fizzing, they create a lot of lather and foam. This is perfectly ideal for a bubble bath. These cannot just be dropped in the bath water like bath bombs are, however. If they were just thrown in there, nothing would happen. When you are using bubble bars, they are meant to be run underneath the bath water and crumbled up into pieces. Your bath will automatically start bubbling up due to the surfactant that is a part of your recipe. Bath bombs do not create this type of foam that a lot of people are looking for. Therefore, bubble bars can be a great bath product alternative if this is what you have been wanting!

Natures Garden Bubble Bar Recipes

Now, we wanted to share some of the Natures Garden bubble bar recipes with you. These show three different ways that bubble bars can be made to look. They all serve the same purpose, but they have variety to them. The first one is our Pumpkin Roll Bubble Bar Recipe. We got our inspiration for this idea from the delicious dessert that is commonly made around the holidays. It uses a lot of the ingredients we have been talking about, such as SCI, baking soda, vegetable glycerin, soap colorants, and more. The link above lays out all of the steps to this recipe and make it easy to follow along with.

Another type that we created is our Watermelon Bubble Bar Recipe. This was a fun project to make because they look like mini ice cream scoops! These are awesome in a bubble bath. They create so much foam and truly make a difference in how your skin feels. You will love how soft and silky you will be feeling after taking a bath with these scoops! We have several other bath scoop recipes just like these up on our website as well. A third way that you can make bubble bars is shown with our Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bar Recipe. This is actually a brand new recipe that we came up with to resemble the dessert of orange juice cake. We made these using a bundt cake mold and drizzled melted soap on top to look like icing. These were also fun and simple to make!

Natural DIY Bubble Bath Bar Recipe

There are plenty of people in our industry who also enjoy making their own homemade bath projects. This article by Debra Maslowski shows how to make a natural DIY bubble bath bar. This is an interesting recipe to take a look at since she is explaining how bubble bars can be made without using a surfactant. Instead, she uses arrowroot powder, baking soda, citric acid, milk powder, cocoa butter, and a few other ingredients. The results from this recipe end up being super cute and they are just as easy to use as any other bubble bar. We hope that you enjoyed our blog today and learning all about how you can make your own bubble bars!

6 grams Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil

Clean and sanitize your workstation along with all of your utensils. There are many dry ingredients involved with this recipe, which can create clouds of powder in the air. Therefore, it is suggested by us that you wear gloves, an apron, a face mask, and a hair net while when preparing this. Also, you will want to prepare your bottle of rubbing alcohol that will be used in one of the last steps.

Mixing the Dry IngredientsMixing the Dry Ingredients

To begin, you are going to need a couple of mixing bowls and a digital scale for weighing. We will be measuring and working with the dry ingredients in the recipe first. Take out a larger mixing bowl for this portion. First, we are going to weigh out 330 grams of the SLSA. This product is very important in this recipe. SLSA is a surfactant that is a great foaming agent for products like bubble bars, shampoo bars, and bath bombs. It helps your skin to feel extra soft after use and creates so many bubbles for the bath. Next, add to the same bowl 460 grams of the baking soda, 224 grams of the cream of tartar, and 72 grams of the corn starch. Mix all of these powder ingredients together well, using your hands.

Break Up the ClumpsBreak Up the Clumps

We use our hands in the mixture to help break up any clumps of powder we might find. Baking soda tends to be very clumpy, and it is important to break all of these up. Otherwise, your bubble bars will not be mixed as thoroughly and there might be bits of powder in the mixture, which you do not want for your finished product.

Combining the Liquid IngredientsCombining the Liquid Ingredients 

Set the dry ingredients bowl to the side. Now, place a separate mixing bowl on the scale. You need to weigh out 200 grams of the vegetable glycerin, 24 grams of the fractionated coconut oil, and 14 grams of the Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. We chose fractionated coconut oil as our carrier oil due to the properties it has. This oil contributes to the hardness, cleansing, and bubbly lather in cosmetic products. Each one of these qualities is desirable in bubble bars, which you want to create a lot of bubbles in the bath and cleanse the skin at the same time. Our Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil is a combination of pound cake, orange zests, vanilla, caramel, and coconut. This scent is original to Natures Garden and one of our best sellers!

Combining the Mixing BowlsCombining the Mixing Bowls

For the next step, we are going to add the bowl with the wet ingredients to the bowl containing all of the powdered ingredients. Then, you can start mixing them together with your hands. We used our hands because using a spoon may cause the powders to get released into the air and we could lose some of our product, which we do not want to happen.

Forming the DoughForming the Dough

Continue to thoroughly mix the ingredients together. You want to keep going until it reaches the consistency of dough. It may take some time working with it before it reaches this point. Remember to lift and fold the mixture continuously to get the powders at the bottom of the bowl fully incorporated into the rest of it.

Creating the Brown ColorantCreating the Brown Colorant

Next, you will need to get out a small bowl. We are going to be hand making the brown colorant portion of this batter. This step is similar to mixing a facial mask. In your small bowl, weigh out 4 grams of cocoa powder organic. To this, add 20 grams of vegetable glycerin. Mix the ingredients together thoroughly, until there are no longer any clumps from the cocoa powder. Spoon this mixture into the dough batter.

Mix in the ColorantMix in the Colorant

After you have added in the cocoa powder mixture, fully incorporate it into the dough. Evenly fold over the batter repeatedly until you no longer see clumps of brown throughout it. This is just one of the colorants we will be adding to these bubble bars!

Add in Additional ColorantsAdd in Additional Colorants

Once the brown colorant has been fully mixed in, we can move onto the other colors we need. Natures Garden carries multiple FUN Soap Colorants that offer vibrant shades to give color to your soap and body products. For this recipe, we used the shades Orange Oxide, Yellow Oxide, and Black Oxide. Add in 15 drops of the orange, 5 drops of the yellow, and 2 drops of the black. We added these one at a time to see what shade we would be getting, and we were satisfied with our result. This combination gives a nice color to the dough that resembles the look of actual orange juice cake.

Incorporate the Colorants TogetherIncorporate the Colorants Together

After each color is added, we are once again going to use our hands to mix everything together. Continue to knead the dough, especially at the bottom, until the color is evenly dispersed throughout it. An important thing to remember is if the bubble bar dough is too crumbly, you can always add a bit more vegetable glycerin to help. We did not end up having to do this for this recipe, but depending on how your ingredients were measured, you may need to. However, make sure not to add too much vegetable glycerin, or your dough will become too wet and the product will not set up properly. 

Pack the Soap MoldPack the Soap Mold

Now we are all finished with the dough! Take out the silicone bundt cake soap mold and pack the bubble bar dough tightly into it. There should be enough batter to fill all four of the bundt cake cavities. You want to pack it in tightly so that your product is cohesive and sets up together. Allow your bubble bars to set up. You will know they are ready once they have hardened. It took ours approximately 24-48 hours to set up completely. However, it can take longer depending on the climate of your environment.

Remove the Bubble Bars Remove the Bubble Bars

Once the bubble bars have had enough time to finish setting up, you can go ahead and pop them out of their molds. Make sure that you have waited enough time before this step. If not, the bubble bars may crack and crumble instead of remaining in one piece. We removed ours onto a silicone mat to prepare for the next few steps, which can get messy.

Cut Up the Melt and Pour SoapCut Up the Melt and Pour Soap

Now, we are going to prepare the icing for our bundt cake bubble bars! You will need to take 5 cubes from a slab of one of our white melt and pour soap bases. We decided to use Shea Butter, but any of the white colored bases will work fine to resemble icing. Slice the cubes up into smaller pieces and place them in a microwave safe bowl. Then, melt them in the microwave in 30 second intervals until the soap is fully melted. 

Fragrance the IcingFragrance the Icing

After it is melted, add to it 6 grams of Orange Juice Cake Fragrance Oil. We also want to match that with 6 grams of Vanilla White Color Stabilizer. This is because some fragrance oils can cause discoloration to soap and we need ours to stay white in order for it to look like icing. Once those two are added, stir to incorporate everything.

Apply the Soap IcingApply the Soap Icing

Carefully, drizzle the melted soap over your bundt cake bubble bars. Pour it gently and in a back and forth motion, as you would ice cinnamon rolls. Then, grab your bottle of rubbing alcohol that you prepared at the beginning of this recipe. Spray the bubble bars with the melted soap on them with the rubbing alcohol. This will help out for the last step.

Top the Bubble Bars OffTop the Bubble Bars Off

The final step in the recipe is to top our bubble bars off with “nuts”. We needed to spray the icing with rubbing alcohol in order to get these to stick. Take orange peel, cut and sifted, and sprinkle it on top of the bubble bars. This step helps complete the look of authentic orange juice cake. Allow some time for everything to dry before moving them. Once they are finished drying, you have completed this fun project!

Your Orange Juice Cake Bubble Bars are now ready to be used! When you want to put the bubble bars to use, all you have to do is simply crumble up some pieces from one of them. Place these under your warm running bath water and see the wonderful bubbly lather these create! We hope you enjoyed following along with us to make these!

Sweet Rolls Dessert Recipe

Since these orange juice cake bubble bars look like real cinnamon rolls, we thought we would share a delicious dessert with all of you! These Homemade Orange Sweet Rolls by Sally’s Baking Addiction are a perfect representation of our bubble bars. This is a blog full of all different kinds of recipes that are simple to make and delicious to eat. All of the orange lovers out there will really like this take on traditional cinnamon rolls. The orange flavored glaze adds a really nice touch to these as well. Give them a try and enjoy!

Before we begin making this recipe, it is important to clean and sanitize your work area and all of your packaging materials that will be used. We also always want to make the suggestion that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while preparing these homemade cosmetic recipes. 

Ingredient Spotlight: Whipped Soap BaseIngredient Spotlight: Whipped Soap Base

To get started, we need to get our ingredients together and ready to be used. The main ingredient this recipe requires us to use is a whipped soap base. Our whipped soap base at Natures Garden is made from glycerin, sorbitol, stearic acid, and Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate. SCI is a type of surfactant that is commonly added to skin care products because it leaves the skin feeling soft, hydrated, and moisturized. Our whipped soap base is a creamy, luscious product that can be very useful when making homemade projects in this industry. It is versatile and most often used to make body butters, shaving soap, bath frosting, and foaming sugar scrubs.

If you want to brighten up your whipped soap, adding soap coloring and/or Natures Garden body safe fragrance oils offer you that. There are some fragrance oils that may discolor your products, including whipped soap. Discoloration can usually be corrected by using vanilla white color stabilizer. Before choosing the fragrance oils you want to use, you will probably want to know whether or not your product will discolor, and by how much. We tested all of our fragrance oils in cold process soap and made a chart for the results, which you can check out.

Weighing Out the Whipped Soap BaseWeighing Out the Whipped Soap Base

Now that you know more about how our whipped soap base works, we can get started on our project of the day. First, you will need to get out some mixing bowls and a scale to accurately measure your ingredients. We always choose to use a digital scale when making recipes because we believe that it is the most accurate at weighing out the ingredients. With which ever type of scale that you prefer to use, weigh out 454 grams of the whipped soap base. Set it aside for now while we prepare the other three ingredients we are going to need.

Weigh Out the Powdered SugarWeigh Out the Powdered Sugar

Next, take out another mixing bowl. You are going to need to weigh out 250 grams of your powdered sugar. Any brand of powdered sugar will be fine to use in our recipes. Once you have measured out this ingredient, you can set it aside for the time being just as with the whipped soap base. We are going to be returning to it in a later step. 

Add in the Pomegranate Fragrance OilAdd in the Pomegranate Fragrance Oil

For the next step, you will need to take out a small bowl. Place the bowl on your scale and measure out 35 grams of the Natures Garden Pomegranate Fragrance Oil. Then, add it into your whipped soap base. The pomegranate fragrance oil is one of our single note fragrances and it smells of delicious fresh, fruity pomegranate slices. This is one of the best selling fragrance oils that we carry at our company. Some of our other best sellers are Black Raspberry and Vanilla, Fresh Brewed Coffee – WORLDS BEST, and NG Aqua di Gio Type. On our website we have a complete list of our best sellers that you can check out.

FUN Soap Colorant Collection at Natures GardenFUN Soap Colorant Collection at Natures Garden

Natures Garden carries a multitude of colorants for soap. We use these in the majority of our recipes to make them bright, colorful, and beautiful. There are 20 shades of these listed on our website. Some of the ones we have are Jailhouse Red, Ultramarine Blue, and Neon Yellow. They are all made using glycerine, vegetable glycerin, and different pigments. No chemical preservatives have been added to our colorants, and they are also completely vegan. They are non-bleeding and do not morph during the saponification process in soap. The FUN Soap Colorants page goes into detail with each of the colorants that we carry. Each section gives the ingredients of the colorants, what each of them are typically used in. 

Adding the Colorants InAdding the Colorants In

Now, it is time to add in the colorants! For this recipe, we need both the Tomato Red FUN Soap Colorant and the Neon Pink FUN Soap Colorant. Give the bottles a shake before opening them up because sometimes the pigment can separate from the vegetable glycerin.  Taking the bowl containing the whipped soap base, add 15 drops of the tomato red colorant. Stir your mixture. Then, add 2 drops of the neon pink colorant to the same bowl. Incorporate the colors thoroughly. The amount for the color suggestions we gave for this recipe were based on the color we wanted our product to be. We were looking for more of a medium pink color as opposed to a deep red for this. If you prefer your whipped soap to be a darker red or a light pink, however, simply manipulate the colors until it reaches the look that you want it to be.

Mixing All of It TogetherMixing All of It Together

At this time, you are going to need to get out your hand mixer. We just use a typical kitchen hand mixer when making recipes. Do not use a mixer that you need for cooking food. Make sure that you are only using a mixer that is specifically for cosmetic projects and will never again be used for cooking. Turn on your mixer and begin whipping the whipped soap base. Continue to mix the combination of the whipped soap base, pomegranate fragrance oil, and the FUN Soap Colorants until it reaches a point where it starts looking like whipped frosting. 

Folding in the Powdered SugarFolding in the Powdered Sugar

After your mixture is combined completely, we can move on to our next step. You will need to grab the bowl that you have the powdered sugar in from step two. Pour and add the powdered sugar into the mixture. Using a rubber spatula, fully fold this dry powder portion into the wet whipped soap base.

Incorporating the MixtureIncorporating the Mixture

Keep folding in the powdered sugar until it is no longer visible. After you have done so, you will need to grab the hand mixer once again. We now need to repeat whipping the base as we did before, very thoroughly. In between mixing, use the spatula to clean the sides of the bowl as you feel it is necessary. Make sure all of your ingredients have been fully incorporated before you move on to the next step.

Get Your Mixture to a Frosting ConsistencyGet Your Mixture to a Frosting Consistency

Continue to mix everything with the hand mixer until it reaches a certain point. The texture is the most important part in this step. You can stop mixing your whipped soap once its appearance has reached a frosting like consistency. Allow your whipped soap mixture about five minutes, left alone, to fully set up.

Scoop the Whipped Soap into the JarsScoop the Whipped Soap into the Jars

After the whipped soap frosting has had enough time to set up, we have reached the final step! With your 4 oz. clear PET jars at the ready with their matching lids, we can finish our whipped soap off. Take out a mixing spoon and use it to scoop the foaming bath icing evenly into all seven of your jars. Then, finish your product off by screwing the white dome lids on each one of them. If you would like to use jars other than these clear PET ones, we also carry a 4 oz white double wall jar and a 4 oz black double wall jar

Your Pomegranate Whipped Soap is now ready to use, yay! We hope that you had fun creating this recipe with us today! If you want to share your results, thoughts, or questions with us, we can be reach on Facebook as the Natures Garden Company, on Twitter with the handle ngscents, and on Instagram with the handle ngscents as well. We are excited to see what you share!

Whipped Cupcake Soap RecipeWhipped Cupcake Soap Recipe

Another recipe of ours that uses our whipped soap base is the Whipped Cupcake Soap. This shows a different type of soap you can make with a whipped soap base. With this recipe, you can make up to four pounds of soap. The ingredients we used to make it include luscious cocoa butter, Daisy Type Fragrance Oil, whipped soap base, vegetable glycerin, and the Neon Pink FUN soap colorant. We made this soap using our square loaf mold, which gives it its shape. If you want to make your whipped cupcake soap even cuter, try adding some colorful sprinkles on top like you can see in our picture! This recipe is another super simple one to follow along with, and it shows what else you can do with the Natures Garden whipped soap base.

Sandalwood Bath Bombs Ingredient Spotlight

Prior to preparing the sandalwood bath bomb recipe, let’s look at a few of the ingredients that we will be using today. Below, we will look at the scent, citric acid, pink salt, and a couple of the natural colorants that we will be using.

Sandalwood Fragrance OilSandalwood Fragrance Oil

This Nature’s Garden fragrance oil is a fan favorite. It is a strong and natural scent. Sandalwood fragrance oil will make some of the best soaps and lotions, but it goes so well in candles as well. Our customers love the distinct scent. Its robust earthy smell will leave an impression! The base notes are a wonderful blend of woody cedar and sandalwood. The simple mix of rose and jasmine for the top notes balance the fragrance oil perfectly.  This simple earthy fragrance says it all once the sandalwood bath bomb hits your tub!

Jojoba OilJojoba Oil

Did you know that Jojoba oil is actually a liquid wax? It’s used in a lot of lipsticks, lip glosses, lotions, and other bath products. This luxurious oil will produce a substantial lather in handmade soap making recipes and has amazing moisturizing qualities. Additionally, jojoba oil stays shelf stable longer than most other moisturizing oils.  We also have a blog about the tremendous benefits of jojoba oil.

Rose Clay PowderRose Clay powder

Rose clay powder is a gentle, natural clay that is amazing for almost any skin type! Most people refer to it by “pink clay”. Rose clay exfoliates and removes toxins from the skin. It can reduce irritation and inflammation! Rose clay is used for all kinds of cosmetics and other body products. It provides critical minerals for your skin, while also naturally coloring your products! This is a perfect way to change up your next project or even make your favorite recipe without other colorants.

Citric AcidCitric Acid

Citric acid is found naturally in citrus fruits of all kinds including lemons, oranges, grapefruits, and especially limes! It is a weak, natural acid that is used in cosmetics to lower the pH balance in certain formulas. It’s also really common in the bath product industry for bath bombs. This is one of the base ingredients that make it fizz once it comes in contact with the water! A lot of other industries use this as an ingredient as well. Food, beverage, and cleaning companies use this in all types of products. Citric acid is also found in a lot of foods that we consume every day. It has so many uses, can you name one?

Himalayan Pink Salt CoarseHimalayan Pink Salt Coarse

Did you know that Himalayan Pink Salt is one of the earth’s purest salts due to the location where it is mined? It’s found in seabeds that were once surrounded by lava! Many people know this product for its use in food. However, the cosmetic industry uses pink Himalayan salt for many types of products as well. Some products include scrubs, bath bombs, bath salts and cosmetics! This natural salt has many therapeutic qualities. It can help ease sore muscles, relax the body, ease arthritis, and help many other skin conditions. It has tremendous amounts of important minerals for your body.

Cocoa PowderCocoa Powder

Cocoa powder is a product of the cocoa tree that is native to Central and South America. The fruits only grow for a third of the year and get picked when they are a yellow-orange color.  The cocoa pods are harvested to make all kinds of products. Common products for cocoa powder are skin products, shampoos, conditioners, and many more beauty products! Cocoa powder helps hair become smoother and moisturizes your dead ends. Some believe it may even help with hair loss due to stress. This ingredient will help your skin to repair damaged areas. Did you know that the Aztecs and Mayans thought that the cocoa tree would bring them immortality?

Before You Begin Preparing the Sandalwood Bath Bombs

The best place to start with the sandalwood bath bomb recipe is gathering all of your ingredients and equipment. Also, clean and sanitize your work area, equipment, molds, and your packaging supplies. It is suggested that you wear gloves, protective clothing, and a hair net while making this recipe. Before you start, fill one of the bullet bottles with witch hazel and place a fine mist sprayer on top. Finally, you do not want to prepare this recipe in a humid area. Bath bombs can pull moisture from the air. This can cause a bath bomb to react and start to fizz.

Preparing The Dry IngredientsPreparing the Dry Ingredients

In a large, clean, and dry mixing bowl, weigh out your citric acid and baking soda. Then, mix the two ingredients thoroughly. Make sure there are no clumps! Clumps in the dry ingredients will leave this mixture unevenly distributed. A sifter or a fine mesh strainer can help this process, which is optional. When you are sure that it is evenly combined, set this bowl of ingredients off to the side.

Preparing the Wet ingredientsPreparing the Wet ingredients

Use a separate small mixing bowl. Weigh out the wet ingredients, then add the jojoba oil and the fragrance to this bowl. Stir together until they are completely combined.  

 

Adding The Wet Ingredients To The DryAdding the Wet Ingredients to the Dry

Next, you will be adding the oils to your dry ingredients. The trick is adding them slowly, mixing with your hands as you go.  You want the wet ingredients to evenly be mixed into the dry.  Do your best to work out the clumps as much as possible. Once you have finished mixing everything together, divide the bath bomb mixture in half into two separate mixing bowls. Then you will be ready to start the coloring process!

Creating the Pink Bath Bomb MixtureCreating the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture

With one of the portions of the mixture in the mixing bowl, add the rose clay and the three drops of Tomato Red FUN soap colorant from Natures Garden. Now that the colorant is in the mixing bowl, thoroughly combine by using your hands to incorporate the coloring. You want to have an even color all the way through the mixture.

Spraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Pink Bath Bomb Mixture with Witch Hazel

Once you are confident that it’s well incorporated, you will need the spray bottle of witch hazel. As you mix with your hands, begin to spray the mixture slowly. You are looking for a dough-like consistency. Be careful not to add too much at a time! You do not want to over activate the bath bomb. If it becomes too wet, it will not fizz in the bathtub.

Creating the Brown Bath Fizzy MixtureCreating the Brown Bath Fizzy Mixture

With the pink bath bomb mixture done, it’s time to create the brown bath fizzy mixture. Start by adding your cocoa powder and both colorants. Once those are in the mixture, make sure you spread the colorant throughout the entire bowl using your hands. You want to make sure you do not have any dark and light spots!

Spraying the Brown Mixture with Witch HazelSpraying the Brown Mixture with Witch Hazel

Again, now that it is combined completely, start spraying the ingredients with the witch hazel. Make sure that you do not soak the mixture. Lightly spray until it is at the desired consistency. A good way to test it is when you squeeze it with your hands, it will have a crumbly dough consistency. Now that you are done with this part of the recipe, you will want to move on to molding them fairly quickly.

Filling the Bath Bomb Molds

It is finally time to begin filling the bath bomb molds. We will be adding pink salt to one half of the mold. We will add the brown mixture to the same half and the pink bath fizzy mixture to the other half.

Adding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb MoldsAdding the Himalayan Pink Salt to the Bath Bomb Molds

Start by placing about a gram of Himalayan coarse pink salt into the half of the mold that you will add the brown bath bomb mixture to. This recipe will create 6 handmade bath bombs.  So, you will need to prepare six bath bomb molds, filling one half of each set.

 

Filling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb MoldFilling Brown Half of the Bath Bomb Mold

On the same side that you added the pink salt, you will want to put the brown mix in. Fill it to the top and pack it down. By making sure the mixture is tight in the mold, it helps keep the bath fizzy together.

 

 

Packing The Pink Side Of The Sandalwood Bath BombsFilling the Pink Side of the Bath Fizzy Mold

Next, begin filling the pink side of the bath fizzy mold. Make sure that the mold is completely filled and packed down. Pack the mixture tightly and evenly.

 

Putting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs TogetherPutting the Sandalwood Bath Bombs Together

Now that both sides are filled, spray each half lightly with witch hazel. Then, press both halves together. The molds will lock together which keeps them in place. Once all of your molds are filled, allow the bath bombs to setup and harden. It helps to let them sit overnight.

 

Finishing And Packaging the Bath BombsFinishing And Packaging the Bath Bombs

Now that your bath bombs are hardened, you are ready to use them! Simply place one bath bomb into a relaxing bath and let them fizz as you soak your worries away.  These sandalwood bath bombs will have you smelling  and feeling fantastic!

 

If you are using these as a gift, you can package them in the mold. You can even add a bow and a name card! They make the perfect gift for a special occasion! If you want to reuse the mold, you can simply place the finished product into bags or wrap them. The options are endless! While storing these, make sure that they are in an airtight container. Remember, any moisture will cause these to react.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Sanitize and Make Preparations

Before you start on this cold process soap recipe, you will want to make a few preparations. First, you will want to gather and wash any equipment you are going to need for this bath and body recipe. Also, you will want to gather any of the soap making supplies that are needed for the spin soap. Next, you are going to want to clean up a space for you to use as a work area. You will want to make sure you have enough space to work comfortably. This will make the soap making process easier and more fun!

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare a Bottle of Vinegar

Also, you will want to prepare a bottle of vinegar before making this homemade cold process soap. Since the vinegar will be used to deactivate any lye that may come into contact with your skin, this bottle of vinegar will be important for practicing cold process soap safety. Furthermore, you can use the vinegar to clean up your work station after making cp soap to make sure that there isn’t any active lye left behind that could be hazardous. So, you will want to fill the 8 ounce spray bottle with vinegar and set it nearby until it is needed.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Lye SolutionSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Lye Solution

First, you are going to create the lye solution for this cp soap recipe. You will want to prepare this homemade soap recipe in a well ventilated room to avoid breathing it in. Further, you will need to wear a face mask and protective clothing during the soap making process to protect yourself from fumes and potential splashing. You are going to measure out 107 grams of the lye for soap making and add it to 277 grams of the distilled water. You will need to be sure to stir as you add the lye to your water. After everything is mixed, you will need to place the container in a safe place to wait for your solution to cool to room temperature.

Then, add all of these cosmetic ingredients to a medium mixing bowl that is microwave safe. You will need to use short intervals in the microwave to melt these ingredients. After, you will set your bowl aside to wait for the soaping oils to cool to the right temperature.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Cosmetic ColorantsSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Cosmetic Colorants

While you are waiting for your lye solution and cosmetic oil mixtures to both cool down to room temperature, you can begin to prepare the four soap colorants that you will need for this bath and body recipe. So, you are going to need to get four separate mixing bowls that are about medium sized. In each of these medium mixing bowls you are going to add one of the colorant mixtures for the different potions of the soap batter.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the White Colorant

First, you are going to need one of the medium mixing bowls to hold the white colorant for this soap. In this bowl you will need to add 7 grams of the Titanium Dioxide. Additionally, you will want to mix in a small amount of soaping oils. You will want to mix these two cosmetic ingredients together well to get rid of any clumps. Once everything is mixed together, you can set this colorant aside for a later step.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Yellow/Orange Colorant

Next, you are going to another medium mixing bowl. This bowl is going to contain the yellow/orange colorant. So, you are going to need to add 6 grams of the Yelp Yellow FUN Soap Colorant, 2 grams of the Jailhouse Red FUN Soap Colorant, and 3 drops of the Yellow Oxide FUN Soap Colorant. Then, you can set this bowl aside for the moment.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Prepare the Red/Orange Colorant

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Combing the Lye and Cosmetic OilsSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Combing the Lye and Cosmetic Oils

Once the lye solution and the cosmetic oils have reached room temperature, you are ready to combine them. So, you are going to add the lye solution to your cosmetic oils and use a stick blender to emulsify everything together.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Adding the Fragrance OilSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Adding the Fragrance Oil

Now that your cosmetic ingredients have been emulsified, you are ready to add the fragrance oil. So, you are going to weigh out 55 grams of the Star Fruit and Mango Fragrance Oil. Once this scented oil is added to your soap batter, you are going to need to use a stick blender to thoroughly incorporate the scent into your mixture.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Dividing the Soap BatterSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Dividing the Soap Batter

Now you are going to need to divide the scented soap batter into four equal portions. Also, you are going to need to retrieve the four mixing bowls with your prepared colorants. You will need to use all of the soap batter and try to use about the same amount of soap in each of the four bowls. Then, mix one of the prepared soap colorants into each of the four soap batter mixtures and stick blend to incorporate the color.

Spin Swirl Soap Recipe: Filling the Soap MoldSpin Swirl Soap Recipe: Filling the Soap Mold

Next, you are going to be filling the soap mold with your portioned soap batter. So, you will need to retrieve the large rectangle tray mold. You will be filling up your wholesale soap mold by pouring only into only two of the corners. These corners will need to be diagonal from one another. Then, you will need to choose two of your colors to start with to pour into the corners. You will need to pour one into each of the corners at the same time. Then, switch the bowls between your hands and pour these colors at the same time. Next, you will grab the two remaining colors, pour one into each corner, switch hands, and pour again. You will need to repeat this process until the mold is filled.

Spinning Your CP SoapSpinning Your CP Soap

As soon as you have your soap mold filled, you are going to spin the soap to create the design for this cp soap recipe. So, you will need to gently transfer the soap mold from the table and onto the lazy Susan. Then, you can begin to slowly spin the lazy Susan in a single direction. This spinning will begin to move your soap batter and create wavy lines. You will want to continue to swirl the soap until you feel that your design has enough swirl. Once you are satisfied with the design of your swirl soap, you can stop spinning the lazy Susan.

Finishing Your Spin Swirl Soap

Now, your cold process soap is nearly ready to use! All you have left to do is allow your soap the time to set up and cure. After 24-43 hours you can remove the soap from the cosmetic mold. Now you can slice your soap along the lines that were created from the soap mold. Then, you will need to let your soap rest for 4-6 weeks before using. After this cure time, you can finally use your beautiful cold process soap!

Prepare Your Water for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe Prepare Your Water for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe 

Before you work to create this diy conditioner recipe, you will need to sanitize the water for your homemade conditioner recipe. In order to do this you are going to boil the water to destroy any bacteria that may have be present. Since you are going to need at least 425 grams of the sanitized water to create your conditioner. Since some water will boil away during this process, you will want to have some extra water to your pot to ensure that you have enough water for your diy conditioner recipe. You will need to heat the water to at least 180 degrees Fahrenheit. Once you have the water at this temperature, you will need to keep the water there for at least twenty minutes. Now that your water has been completely sanitized, you are ready to create your scented bath and body recipe!

Create the Double Boiler for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Next, you are going to want to create the double boiler for this homemade conditioner recipe. While you will still want to stir periodically as your cosmetic ingredients are melting, the double boiler will be useful for preventing your oils and butters from scorching. To create your own double boiler you will need two pots that will fit into each other. In the larger pot, you will add a bit of water. This will be heated to a boil and used to control how fast the cosmetic ingredients will be heated. Also, you will need to add more water if too much evaporates away. Next, place your smaller pot into your pot with water. You will want to make sure that you add enough water to touch the small pot but not too much water where it could boil over into your conditioner making ingredients. Now, you are ready to add you cosmetic ingredients to melt in your double boiler.

Prepare Your Cosmetic Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipePrepare Your Cosmetic Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Now, you are going to need to prepare your cosmetic making ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe. So, you are going to need to use your double boiler to melt these ingredients. You will need to weigh out and add 25 grams of Vegetable Glycerin, 25 grams of BTMS 25, and 20 grams of Argan Oil to the inner pot of your double boiler. While the double boiler will help to prevent scorching, you will still want to stir periodically as the ingredients are melting. After all your cosmetic oils and butters have melted, you can remove them from the heat. Then, you will want to wait for these ingredients to cool until they reach about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Customizing the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

While we have provided a hair conditioner recipe that you can follow, you can customize the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe with a few changes without needing to reformulate the entire recipe. Depending on your hair type, different cosmetic oils may be better for your hair than others. So, you may want to change out some of the cosmetic oils in this wholesale conditioner recipe. Since we used a total of 20 grams of cosmetic oil in this recipe, you can switch out the type of oil used for one that would work better using the same amount. For instance, you could change the 20 grams of the Argan Oil that is already in the recipe to 20 grams of Coconut Oil. So, you wouldn’t add the Argan Oil and would add the Coconut Oil to the cosmetic recipe instead. If you are interested in picking a new cosmetic oil for your hair care recipe, then you can read about different oils for various hair types in our Best Oils for Your Hair Type blog.

Emulsifying the Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeEmulsifying the Ingredients for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Once your cosmetic ingredients have reached the proper temperature, you can move on to emulsifying the water and cosmetic oils together for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe. First of all, you are going to weigh out the 425 grams of the sanitized water. You will want to have both the water and melted oils to be about 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Once your ingredients reach this temperature, you will be able to add your melted cosmetic oils to the mixing bowl of water. Now, you will want to use your stick blender to fully emulsify these wholesale cosmetic ingredients.

Adding Cosmetic Ingredients to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeAdding Cosmetic Ingredients to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Before adding the next cosmetic ingredients to this conditioner recipe, you will need to wait for your emulsified mixture to cool down. Your mixture will need to be around 120 degrees Fahrenheit before you can continue with the process. After reaching this temperature, you can add in 5 grams of the Optiphen Preservative and 5 grams of the Vitamin E Oil. After adding these cosmetic ingredients to the mixture, you can use your stick blender to fully incorporate all of these cosmetic ingredients.

Scenting the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeScenting the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Now you are ready to add the scent to your hair conditioner recipe. You will need to weigh and add 26 grams of the Cancan Type Fragrance Oil. This gorgeous scented oil has a fresh mandarin aroma that is balanced with hints of apple peel. Further, this feminine fragrance continues with a floral accord of jasmine, violet and lily. These scents blend to balance with notes of woodland fern and the hints of berry at the heart of this scent. Finally, a sensual blend of cashmere musk, golden amber and vanilla bean creates a romantic sweetness that surrounds the floralcy. After adding this scented oil to your mixture, you will want to stick blend everything together.

At this point, your conditioner will be still be thin. So, you will need to wait to let this mixture cool to room temperature. As your lotion cools it will thicken to the right consistency. Then, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Preparing the Lotion Pumps for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipePreparing the Lotion Pumps for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

While you are waiting for your conditioner to cool down to room temperature, you can resize your lotion pumps. In total, you are going to need two of these pumps. To determine how much you need to cut you can stand the pump up next to your 8 ounce plastic lotion bottles wholesale. You will want to trim the pump so that it is long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle and short enough to allow you to screw on the cap. Once your lotion pump has been trimmed, you can move on to the next step in the process.

Filling Cosmetic Plastic Bottles for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner RecipeFilling Cosmetic Plastic Bottles for the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

As the mixture cools down, you will find that the homemade conditioner will begin to thicken up. Once the hair care mixture reaches room temperature, you can begin filling your lotion bottles wholesale. You can use a funnel to more easily transfer the conditioner into the 8 oz plastic bottles with pump. You will be able to fill up two of these bullet bottles with this bath and body recipe. Once both of your wholesale conditioner bottles are filled up, you are ready to add the lotion pump lids.

Decorating the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Bottles

Now, you are going to be decorating the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner bottles for this cosmetic recipe. Each bottle will have a bling ribbon and an acrylic jewel added. So, you are going to need to warm up your hot glue gun to adhere these decorations to the wholesale packaging supplies.

Adding the Bling Ribbon to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

First you are going to be adding the bling ribbon to your wholesale plastic bottle. So, you will want to wrap the ribbon around the circumference of the bottle. Then, cut enough ribbon for it to reach all the way around the middle of the bottle. After cutting this ribbon, you will use your glue gun to adhere both ends of the ribbon to the bottle. Once the glue dries, you will need to repeat this step with your other cosmetic bottle. Then, you can move on to the next step.

Adding the Acrylic Jewels to the Argan Oil Hair Conditioner Recipe

Next, you will be adding the acrylic jewels to your cosmetic bottles. You will want to line up the purple acrylic jewel on the bling ribbon. Then, you will need to glue the bling gem into place. Be sure to secure one of the bling jewels to each of the cosmetic bottles.

Then, you are going to divide your bubble bar dough mixture into three separate portions. Each of these three portions of the dough will be made into a different color for this cosmetic recipe. You will want to make sure that these three portions each have about the same amount of the dough mixture. Then, you need to roll each portion into a ball. After, you will want to place each balled up portion into its own bowl.

Bubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White PortionBubble Bar Scoops Recipe: Prepare the White Portion

First, you are going to prepare the white portion of this bath recipe. This portion of the bath scoop is going to be white and uncolored. So, you can leave this portion of the dough without any of the cosmetic colorant. All you need to do for this portion is roll it into a ball. Then, you can place this ball of dough in a medium mixing bowl and set the bowl aside for you to use in a later step.

You will want to start on one side of the bowl and move your way across the bowl through the other colors. Your goal should be to get a little bit of all three colors in a single scoop. While you are scooping the dough, you will need to pack the dough into the ice cream scoop a bit to make sure that the dough will hold its form. Once you have the dough packed, you are ready to release it from the ice cream scoop. As you create the bubble bar scoops, you will need to place each of them into a piece of parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. You will need to repeat scooping and placing on either your paper or mat until all of the bubble bar dough has been used up.

How to Make Lotion: Skin Care PreservativesHow to Make Lotion: Skincare Preservatives

Also, it is important to create any cosmetic recipe with some kind of a preservative. This makes sure that your finished product will last longer and can be stored without the worry of bacteria and various germs taking over. So, adding Optiphen preservative to your homemade lotion recipes will kill germs and keep your products safe. However, you need to make sure that you add this cosmetic ingredient when your recipe is between 120 degrees and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. This ensures that the Optiphen doesn’t burn off at a high temperature but the lotion is still warm enough to incorporate without separating. Also, the Optiphen has a usage rate of 0.75 to 1.5%. So, you can create quality bath and body recipes that are well preserved.

How to Make Lotion: Cosmetic Emulsifiers

Another important cosmetic ingredient for making lotion from scratch is the emulsifier. This wholesale ingredient allows the water and the cosmetic oils to bind together. Otherwise, your homemade recipe would separate into two layers. Not only would your recipe look wrong, but it wouldn’t be as effective without the emulsifying wax either.
