foaming bath butter, that pasty surfactant mix that we can whip into a lovely frothy mixture to which we can add various exfoliants, like sugar, colours, oils, and fragrances to make a great foamy and lathery body scrub. Let's take a look at making one now.
I decided to keep my first one pretty basic.
WHITE CHOCOLATE FOAMING BATH BUTTER SUGAR SCRUB
90% foaming bath butter
7% evening primrose oil
3% white chocolate fragrance oil (From Voyageur Soap & Candle)
I whipped the foaming bath butter with my mixer with the whisk attachment. When it seemed like it had grown in size, I added the evening primrose oil and white chocolate fragrance oil. I then added 50% sugar - meaning I added 50 grams to this mixture - and whipped it further. But note this!!! Your sugar will dissolve over time, so you'll want to add more than you think you need. I added another 50 grams of sugar to the product two days later to make sure it was scrubby enough.
I was happy with this mixture. I thought it felt really nice and moisturized. If you have dry skin, you might want to consider going as high as the 12.5% oil in this product. I have oily skin, and I found it was a good level for me.
Could you use another exfoliant for this product? Sure, why not? Join me later this week when we make a few things with other exfoliants!
As an update on this recipe: I found that some of the sugar dissolved in the scrub, which made it a bit sticky. I still like it, but I'm trying it with another physical exfoliant to see what happens!
