Learn how to make this easy spring inspired strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub recipe!
I created this foaming salt scrub recipe with real strawberry fruit powder for it’s skin soothing properties. Strawberry fruit powder is rich in polyphenols and Vitamin C and has toning properties when used in skincare products.
In addition, I used dendritic salt in lieu of regular salt. Dendritic salt has a finer grain and larger surface area than other salts which offers greater fragrance retention in cosmetic applications. It also dissolves faster in water.
Strawberry Smoothie Foaming Salt Scrub Recipe
In a large container, weigh out the foaming bath whip base and the fragrance oil. Mix together. (I specifically used Crafter’s Choice foaming bath whip for my strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub recipe.)
In a separate container weigh out the salt and strawberry fruit powder.
Then, using a measuring spoon, measure out the mica powder.
Mix the mica, strawberry powder and salt together then pour into the scented foaming bath whip base, mixing with a spatula as you go.
Once the dry ingredients are incorporated into the scented foaming bath whip base, mix well with a hand mixer on high speed for 3-5 minutes.
Now spoon or pipe the strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub into your containers of choice. I used 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps from from SKS Bottle & Packaging. This product will yield around 22 oz. (624 grams) of product by volume. So I was able to fill two 9 oz. and one 4 oz. glass jars.
To use, simply remove desired amount and massage onto damp skin in the shower to cleanse, tone and exfoliate, then rinse off.
My strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub recipe is best suited for normal to oily skin.
It is important to note that fine salt crystals will dissolve in this base over time. Therefore I recommend using larger salt crystals than the dendritic salt if you aren’t using this product right away. You can also substitute the salt with sugar.
In addition, I advise using a preservative if you’re planning to sell or store your strawberry smoothie foaming salt scrub prior to use. If selling your homemade products, you’ll need to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. Not sure how to label your creations? I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
