Liquid & Cream Soap Scrubs

Rhassoul Body Polish

This creamy cleanser has added Moroccan rhassoul clay for exfoliation.  This whipped cream soap recipe is mild and gentle enough to use every day.

Oils Phase (by weight)

2 oz. stearic acid
6 oz. coconut oil
4 oz. palm oil
3.7 oz. shea butter
.3 oz. castor oil

Water Phase (fluid measure)

1/4 teaspoon rhassoul clay
1 oz. silk powder
1 oz. glycerin USP
18 oz. distilled water

Lye by weight:

.6 oz. sodium hydroxide (NAOH)
2.4 oz. potassium hydroxide (KOH)

Essential Oils Blend

12 drops myrrh essential oil
8 drops frankincense essential oil
20 drops sandalwood essential oil
20 drops rosewood essential oil
3 drops rose absolute essential oil (optional)

Hydrate rhassoul clay in water overnight. The next day, agitate with a stick blender until you have a slurry. Weigh oils and prepare lye-water mix. Add silk protein and glycerin to lye-water mix.

Melt hard oils and butters til fluid. Add to lye-water. It is not unusual to see a curdled mass at this point. This is due to the stearic acid becoming neutralized by the lye.

Using a stick blender, blend for 1-2 minutes at a time, allowing the blender to rest for 2-3 minutes before whipping again. The mix may take 5-10 minutes to become homogeneous. About halfway through the mixing, add your  essential oils mix, if using.

There is a danger of separation if you do not mix long enough. You will eventually develop an instinctual feel for “trace” with these materials. In the meantime, the best way to describe trace in a whipped cream soap in that it is  much thicker than regular cold process soap when it traces. You will also note a shift in creaminess when the soap is at trace.

When your soap has traced, pour into waiting sterile wide-mouth jars or tubes. Cover tightly. Allow to stand for approximately 7-10 days before using. Test pH. It should be around pH 8-9 range.
