Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe
There are a lot of benefits you can get from our chocolate face mask recipe that will really bring out the beauty in your skin! While we knew that cocoa power could be wonderful for skin, we still didn’t have a cocoa recipe that would care for your face. So, we decided to create a real chocolate face mask with cocoa powder! This recipe will leave your skin feeling clean, vibrant, and so soft. So, check out our fabulous Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe from Natures Garden!
This facial recipe uses all natural ingredients to create a perfect recipe that will care for your face and leave you with a healthy glow! Further, we added vegetable glycerin and Vitamin E Oil to make sure that your skin remains nourished and gorgeous. Since removing toxins in your pores could pull out moisture, we need something to replenish and soften the skin. Plus, we included bentonite clay, which is perfect for creating homemade facials. Whether you are looking for a bentonite clay mask for blackheads, chocolate face mask for acne, or are interested in the other wonderful skin benefits, this is the perfect face mask recipe for you!

Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing to Create Your Face Mask
Since you are creating a product for your face, it is very important that you make some preparations to ensure there are no contaminates. Otherwise, you could end up with dirt or debris in your recipe. So, we want to prevent this as best we can. First, clean and sanitize your bowl and mixing spoon. This is most important as these utensils will have direct contact to your facial. Next, sanitize your work space. While this won’t touch your facial, anything on the counter could indirectly reach the recipe as you set down the mixing spoon between uses. Thus, cleaning both the equipment and your work space will keep your homemade facial safe enough for your to use without worry!
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Bentonite Clay Powder
First, we are going to prepare the Bentonite Clay Powder for your facial. So, retrieve your medium sized mixing bowl and the scale. Also, you should set your scale to grams. Then, you will tare the weight of the bowl and weigh out 224 grams of your Bentonite Clay Powder. After, you will be ready to add the next ingredient.
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Weighing the Organic Cocoa Powder
Next, we are going to be preparing the Organic Cocoa Powder for your facial recipe. This ingredient will be added to the same mixing bowl that now contains your bentonite clay powder. So, you are going to have to tare the weight of this filled bowl and add in 96 grams of the organic cocoa powder to the bowl. Be sure to mix these two ingredients together enough that everything is evenly dispersed.
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Adding the Vitamin E Oil
Now, we are going to add the pure vitamin E oil to your powdered mixture. Retrieve your bowl containing the bentonite clay and organic cocoa powder. Also, you will need a disposable pipette to add this ingredient. Now, you will use the disposable pipette to add the 24 drops of the Vitamin E Oil to the bowl of your powder mixture.
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Mixing Together the Ingredients
After your three ingredients have been added to the mixing bowl, it is time to blend it all together. You will need to mix everything well enough that each ingredient is dispersed evenly throughout the mixture. You are going to want the beneficial qualities of each ingredient in every facial, so be sure to mix well! This is the final time you will mix these ingredients before packaging, so make it count!
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Packaging the Facial Powder
Next, the powdered portion of this facial recipe is complete. You should make sure that everything is mixed fully! Now, you can scoop your completed mixture into the 4 oz jars. So, carefully transfer this fluffy powder to fill each of the jars. Then, put the lid on each of these filled jars. When you are finished, each of your four 4 oz Clear PET Jars should be completely filled.
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Preparing the Vegetable Glycerin Portion
After, you will be packaging the other portion of your facial mask. So, take your 1 oz Clear Bullet Bottles and fill each one with about 24 grams of the Vegetable Glycerin. Then, place one 20/410 White Disc Top Lids on each of the filled 1 oz bottles. Now, you can pair up each jar with one bottle. Each pair should be proportioned well enough to have the correct amount of ingredients to make about eight facials!
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Creating the Finished Homemade Facial
Later, you will need to mix the powder and the Vegetable Glycerin together to use your facial. So, when you are ready to use one of your homemade facials retrieve a small sized mixing bowl. Now, you are going to combine your ingredients. Take a tablespoon of the powdered mixture, two tablespoons of water, and about a half teaspoon of the Vegetable Glycerin. After, you will mix this all together well until it is all the same consistency.
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Using the Homemade Facial Recipe
Finally, your facial is ready to use! Apply a thin layer of the chocolate facial to your face and let the magic begin! Now, just sit back and relax as this recipe takes care of your skin. Maybe even grab some real chocolate, which we would recommend the scrumptious Lindt chocolates, to pair with your chocolate facial as you wait. The moment is yours, so make it worth every second!
As the mask sits on your face it will begin to harden and tighten a bit. After the facial has entirely hardened you will find no more wet spots on your facial, so it is ready to come off. Now, you can wash off this chocolate facial recipe with some warm water. Finally, your face should feel refreshed and look rejuvenated!
Chocolate Facial Mask Recipe Why We Wait to Mix in the Vegetable Glycerin
Now, you may be thinking to yourself, “Why would I wait to add the Vegetable Glycerin?”. I mean it seems like it would be so much easier to just mix everything now, as you already have all your crafting equipment out and ready. Then, you’d have it all ready to go when you need it. However, there are a few factors that make the nature of mixing the facial ingredients more complicated.
After you mix your ingredients, the shelf life will be short. Without a preservative, you will only have a shelf life of one week. Further, this is only the shelf life of a week if it is kept in the refrigerator. So, unless you intend on making a ton of facials immediately, this is not going to end well. If you make all of your facials now, then you will have to use all thirty two individual facials within a single week! Otherwise, the facial will begin to host bacteria and other undesirable organisms that you will not want anywhere near your face.
If you didn’t want to use it all right away, then you could add a preservative to your recipe. Now, adding a preservative is fine and will make the mixed facials last longer, but this is not your only option. There is an easier and more realistic method that will keep this facial all natural where you won’t lose most of the product. There is no need to heat your ingredients and wait for the proper temperature to add the Optiphen. Just wait to mix in the vegetable glycerin and the water until it is time to use the facial. We promise it is an easy way to make your recipe last so much longer!
Plus, all natural cosmetic businesses can sell the mixed powder and vegetable glycerin in a small kit with instructions. Each kit would contain one jar and one bottle, which would produce eight individual facial masks. In addition, this is a project you can put together in minutes! Plus, all you need to do is explain the proportion of mixing the powder, water, and vegetable glycerin! Not only will this be easier to produce, but your facial will be entirely all natural! So, your customers will feel safe using this preservative free recipe on their face. Everybody wins!
