Solid Sugar Scrubs




This recipe that we devised for a solid sugar scrub will help polish and brighten the skin, and leave it feeling touchable and silky smooth! It contains a high percentage of nourishing and luxurious shea butter, as well as skin loving coconut oil and vitamin E.


Ingredients to make 1 tray of scrubs:


37%   Shea Butter                                     74 grams

5%   Coconut Oil Fractionated                   10 grams

20%   Clear Melt and Pour Soap                40 grams

37%   Sugar                                               74 grams

1%   Vitamin E MTS-50                                2 grams

Fragrance Oil or Essential Oil if desired

Clover Wax Tart Mold

Chromium Hydroxide Green Colourant

Directions:

1. Weigh out the melt and pour soap, shea butter, and coconut oil into a measuring cup.

2. Using a double boiler or the microwave, heat up the mixture until no solids remain, stirring well. The shea butter will sit in suspension in the soap base, so it's ok if the appearance is spotty.

3. Weigh out and add your sugar to the melted mixture, and stir to incorporate. Shea butter cools very slowly so the sugar will have a tendency to sink to the bottom of the cup, just keep stirring until the scrub cools slightly.

4. Add the Chromium Green colourant. We used about 3 x 0.15 cc scoops' worth.

5. Stir the scrub until the colourant is evenly dispersed, then pour the scrub into each cavity of the mold. There should be just enough for one tray of scrubs.

Let the scrubs cool down completely before un-molding. This might take quite a few hours due to the shea butter, but you can put the tray in the fridge to speed up the cooling process.


To Use:

Get the scrub moist during a shower or bath, then gently rub your skin with it in a circular motion.
