Making Your Own Whipped Sugar Scrubs

Now that you’ve tried – and fallen head over heels for – the awesomeness that is the whipped sugar scrub, why not try your hand at making your own?

I’ve found that a lot of the simple recipes that whipped sugar scrubs call for include coconut oil. It’s important to note, that while coconut oil does have some amazing skin care properties, it also rates pretty high on the comedogenic chart. What this means is that it’s likely to clog pores in most people which in turn can lead to acne.

Additionally, I find that straight up coconut oil irritates my dry skin. If this has been your experience as well, you can easily substitute the coconut oil in any of these whipped sugar scrub recipes with babassu oil.

While coconut oil rates a 4 on the comedogenic chart, babassu oil is a low-comedogenic oil with a rating of only 2 – meaning it won’t clog pores for most people. It also works as a mild moisturizer that calms and soothes all skin types, whether you’re acne prone or suffer from skin conditions like eczema or dry skin.

What are the Other Skin Care Benefits Babassu Oil?

Babassu oil has many of the same properties to regular coconut oil. Like coconut oil, babassu oil is semi-solid at room temperature with a melting point around body temperature – slightly higher than coconut oils own 76°F melt point. A great substitute for those with coconut allergies, this mild moisturizer also won’t leave skin feeling oily or greasy and it works great in hair too.

In addition babassu oil contains a high amount of skin beneficial fatty acids including lauric, stearic, myristic, palmitic and oleic acid. It’s also rich in vitamin E, a natural antioxidant, and has anti-inflammatory properties. It’s a wonderful choice for an itchy scalp or dry skin and hair. (Learn more about using babassu oil for hair care here.)

You can learn more about common carrier oils and where they rank on the comedogenic chart at the Holistic Health Herbalist here. Also be sure to check out my other skin care recipes that contain babassu oil here.

Because it's emulsified it doesn't feel oily on skin - making it the perfect option for exfoliating skin this summer! It's so easy to create and makes a great homemade gift too!

Why cucumber seed oil?

Cucumber seed oil is a carrier oil rich in vitamins B and C, essential fatty acid and minerals. As such, it is prized for its properties when used in both skin care and hair care applications. This highly moisturizing oil is beneficial for those with troublesome skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis, and eczema. It is also prized as an anti-inflammatory and for it’s anti-aging properties.

Aloe vera oil, which differs from aloe vera gel and is also a key component in my natural baking soda free palmarosa + lime deodorant recipe, is commonly used to treat skin inflammation as well as chapped skin. It’s also beneficial for burns, including sunburns, and can help to reduce the appearance of scars due to its high vitamin E content.

Cucumber Mint Sugar Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

28.5 oz. white granulated sugar
2 oz. cucumber seed oil
6 oz. aloe vera oil
1 oz. refined shea butter
1 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. cucumber mint fragrance oil
1/2 teaspoon jade green mica powder

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my cucumber mint sugar scrub recipe.

Because it's emulsified it doesn't feel oily on skin - making it the perfect option for exfoliating skin this summer! It's so easy to create and makes a great homemade gift too!

This recipe will yield three 9 oz. jars. I used 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars with silver metal lug caps for this project. You can find these jars at SKS Bottle & Packaging here.

Begin by weighing out the emulsifying wax and shea butter.

Combine in a large 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup and heat at 50% power in the microwave until melted. Alternately, you may use a double boiler.

Remove from heat.

Weigh out the cucumber seed oil and aloe vera oil and stir into the melted wax and shea butter.

Follow with the fragrance oil, weighing it first, then mix in.

Next, in separate container, weigh out the sugar.

Using a measuring spoon, measure out the mica powder.

Add the mica powder to the sugar and mix well with a fork until the mica is evenly distributed throughout the sugar. (If your tub stains easily I recommend using Polysorbate 80 to help prevent staining and/or using a lesser amount of mica powder.)

Now slowly pour the sugar into the wet ingredients, whisking with a fork until all the sugar has been moistened and the ingredients are evenly distributed.

Spoon the scrub mixture evenly into three 9 oz. clear straight sided glass jars and screw on the lids.

Label as desired for personal use or gifting. (I used clip art I purchased from Mellenes Art on Etsy for my labels.)

It is important to note that as this is an oil based product, I did not include a preservative in my cucumber mint sugar scrub recipe. However, as your completed cucumber mint sugar scrub is likely to come into contact with water during usage, I highly recommend that you include a preservative if you are not using it all at once, are gifting this product or are planning to sell this product. There is a wide array of preservatives available on the market.

The preservative you use is your choice. I recommend choosing a preservative that is best suited for the makeup of this product and that fits your personal lifestyle choices. (One popular preservative is Optiphen Plus which is both paraben and formaldehyde-free.) The usage rate of your preservative will be recommended by the manufacturer at a percentage. Simply total the weight of all the ingredients in your cucumber mint sugar scrub then multiply by that percentage to determine the amount of preservative your product will need. Add at or below recommended temperature. You will want to use a food thermometer for this.

If you are selling your finished cucumber mint sugar scrub, then you will need to label your product according to FDA guidelines. If you are unsure about labeling laws then I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.

Foaming Ginger & Turmeric Face Polish Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

2 oz. (57 grams) Crafter’s Choice foaming bath whip (or similar)
.1 oz. (3 grams) hemp seed oil
.1 oz. (3 grams) rosehip seed oil
.05 oz. (1.5 grams) sea buckthorn oil
.1 oz. (3 grams) kaolin (white cosmetic) clay
9 oz. (255 grams) white sugar
14 drops turmeric essential oil
16 drops fresh ginger essential oil

Instructions:

Begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the foaming bath whip base.

This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe is wonderful for maturing skin and is crafted with a blend of natural carrier & essential oils prized for their antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

Now weigh out the hemp, rosehip seed and sea buckthorn oils and mix into the foaming bath whip with a spatula.

Add the essential oils then mix again. (If desired, you can also add an antioxidant like vitamin E oil or a rosemary antioxidant (extract) to help extend the shelf life of the carrier oils used.)

In a separate container weigh out the sugar and kaolin clay. Mix to combine. (If your skin tends to be particularly acne prone, you can substitute the kaolin clay with bentonite clay. Alternately Rhassoul clay and French green clay are also wonderful substitutions for maturing skin.)

Now slowly pour the sugar and clay mixture into the foaming bath whip base and oils. Mix with a hand blender adding more sugar/clay as the foaming ginger & turmeric face polish comes together.

This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe is wonderful for maturing skin and is crafted with a blend of natural carrier & essential oils prized for their antioxidant and anti-aging properties.

Once you’ve added all the sugar and clay to the product, mix on high for several minutes.

Now spoon your face polish into a container (or containers) of your choice. This foaming ginger & turmeric face polish recipe will fill one 8 oz. container.

The containers pictured are an 8 oz. amber PET heavy wall plastic jar with a lined aluminum cap and a 2 oz. straight sided amber glass jar with black phenolic lined cap. I got both from SKS Bottle & Packaging.

Now simply label your foaming ginger & turmeric face polish as desired for personal use or gifting.

If you like my labels, you can download the PDF for these labels here and print your own onto full size white label sheets! (I got my labels from WorldLabel.)

To use, remove desired amount from jar then gently massage onto damp skin. Rinse, then follow with a toner and moisturizer.

Crafted using the exact same recipe as my rainbow colored moldable sugar scrub, both my bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs can be made using the same batch of my moldable semi-solid sugar scrub “dough.” Simply make a batch, then divide it as needed for the number of colors you want.

In my case, I used a combo of colors for a purple-gray for my bunny butts and yellow for my Easter chicks. The simple details are then painted on using micas and isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol.

You can pre-make the “dough” base for these spring sugar scrubs then create the shapes and paint on the details with your kids or grandkids for a craft afternoon filled with fun!

DIY Spring Sugar Scrubs

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

.75 oz. refined cocoa butter
6 oz. ultra refined shea butter
1 oz. extra virgin chia seed oil
.75 oz. emulsifying wax
.5 oz. xanthan gum powder
.15 oz. castor oil
.35 oz. vegetable glycerin
.75 oz. Stephenson’s Natural SLS Free Melt and Pour Soap Base
.05 oz. kaolin clay (white cosmetic clay)
16 oz. granulated white sugar
.25 oz. essential oil or .4 oz. fragrance oil, of choice
liquid melt & pour soap colors and/or skin safe mica powders, to suit

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh the ingredients for my DIY spring sugar scrubs. I recommend this Baker’s Math Scale if you plan to make a lot of bath, body or soap recipes.

Begin by weighing out the cocoa butter, shea butter and emulsifying wax into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup or similar. Heat at 50% power in a microwave until melted. (Alternately you may also use a double boiler.)

Weigh out the melt and pour soap base and cut into small chunks. Stir into the melted butters and wax until melted. You can reheat if necessary to continue melting the soap base.

While these ingredients are still hot, weigh out the xanthan gum powder and whisk into the melted ingredients until it has dissolved.

Next, you’ll weigh out the remaining oils and glycerin. Combine the chia seed oil, castor oil, essential or fragrance oil and vegetable glycerin in the bowl with the previously melted ingredients and stir well.

In a separate container, weigh out the kaolin clay and sugar. Mix to combine.

Now pour the clay and sugar mixture into the liquid ingredients and mix well.

Set the mixture aside until it starts to thicken then remix with a spoon or spatula.

Now mix the sugar scrub mixture using a KitchenAid stand mixer as it continues to thicken.

You can place the sugar scrub mixture in the refrigerator to speed up the cooling process if desired.

Once the mixture begins to look white and a little fluffy – kind of like marshmallow fluff – remove the mixing bowl from the stand mixer base and place it briefly in the fridge.

When sugar scrub starts to feel as if it’s hardening, remove it from the refrigerator.

Remix the sugar scrub mixture with your hands. Your body heat will make the sugar scrub pliable sort of like Play-doh.

You’re now ready to create your bunny and chick spring sugar scrubs!

You’ll start by dividing the sugar scrub “dough” into the number of colors you’d like to use. Working with one ball of sugar scrub “dough” at a time, add the colorant(s) to the first sugar scrub “dough” a little at a time. Knead well to incorporate the color in between adding the colorant. Once you’ve reached the color you want, repeat with any additional sugar scrub “dough” and colorants.

In this instance I colored half of my sugar scrub “dough” yellow for the little chick spring sugar scrubs and a combination of colors for the bunny butts to create a purplish-gray.

Now divide the yellow colored sugar scrub “dough” into palm sized or smaller chunks and roll them into balls.

Do the same for the bunny butts, but leave some left over scrub off to the side. Once you’ve rolled out the balls for the bunny butts, roll out several smaller balls for the bunny tails and two more small balls for each of the bunny butts.

Roll the balls for the bunny feet on a flat surface until they are slightly oblong, then gently press flat.

Press the bunny feet onto the bottom of the large balls you created as your bunny butts. If you’re worried about the feet sticking during transport or if you’re gifting your spring sugar scrubs, simply dip the bottoms of the bunny feet into a small amount of melted natural melt and pour soap base and use it to adhere the components of your bunny together.

Now dip each sphere you created for the bunny tails into skin safe glitter or mica. I used Super Sparkles mica powder for my bunny tails. Then adhere the tails to your bunny butts as photographed above the bunny feet.

Set both the chick and the bunny spring sugar scrubs aside to harden back up. You can of course speed up this process by placing them in the fridge.

Once your bunny and chick sugar scrubs are nice and firm you’re ready to paint on the designs! This is done in basically the same way I painted on the micas for my DIY mermaid soaps!

You will use micas to paint the details your spring sugar scrubs. Grab a small container for each color you want to use to paint your scrubs.

Add a small amount of mica to each container followed by a small amount of isopropyl alcohol. As you want bold colors, use as little alcohol as possible to dampen the mica just enough that you can smoothly spread it with a small paintbrush.

To paint on the bunny feet simply paint one large circle in a contrasting color to your bunny’s color at the top of the bottoms of all the bunny feet. Then also paint three small circles on the bottoms of all the feet. Let them dry and your spring bunny sugar scrubs are done!

To make your chick sugar scrubs it’s pretty much the same deal and also super easy. Paint two small circles for eyes – or use candy eyes like I did for my DIY poop emoji bubble bars – and then paint on triangles for each of their beaks! Let them dry and now your spring chick sugar scrubs are complete!

Now all you need to do is package your spring sugar scrubs in large 16 oz. clear PET (BPA free) jars or wrap tightly in food service film and label as desired.

To use simply scoop or tear off desired amount from a chick or bunny and massage onto wet skin as you would a solid sugar scrub cube.

If you’d like to sell these chick and bunny spring sugar scrubs for Easter, be sure to follow FDA guidelines for labeling your product. If you’re unsure about the rules and regulations regarding labeling cosmetics, I highly recommend the book, Soap and Cosmetic Labeling: How to Follow the Rules and Regs Explained in Plain English, by Marie Gale.
