Vegan Face Wash Recipe for Sensitive Skin

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my disclosure policy.

As someone with sensitive skin I understand how challenging it can be to find products that not only work for your skin but also don’t cause irritation. Therefore I developed a simple vegan face wash recipe for sensitive skin. Not only does it gently cleanse skin without stripping it of beneficial oils, but it’s also effective at removing makeup and deterring adult acne.

I crafted my unscented vegan face wash recipe using Stephenson’s mild foaming bath butter for it’s gentle cleansing properties and creamy texture. Rich in natural glycerin, this base is also both paraben and MPG free.

I then added skin soothing colloidal oatmeal, oat butter and French green clay to this base to calm inflammation. In addition, I also used rosehip seed oil to hydrate skin and target aging without clogging pores. Jojoba beads and cranberry seeds are then used to offer gentle exfoliation.

Ingredients:

8 oz. Stephenson Foaming Bath Butter Base
1 oz. medium 40/60 white jojoba beads
.75 oz. oat butter (or another hydrogenated butter)
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.2 oz. French green clay
.2 oz. colloidal oatmeal
.15 oz cranberry seeds

Instructions:

You will need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients for my vegan face wash recipe. In addition you will also need a hand mixer.

Begin by weighing out 8 oz. of foaming bath butter. Cut into chunks and place in a large glass bowl or 8-cup Pyrex measuring cup.

Next, weigh out and add the remaining ingredients to your container.

Starting with the lowest setting, use a hand mixer to mix the ingredients until combined with the foaming bath butter.

Once mixed, increase the speed of your hand mixer to high and beat until light and fluffy or to desired consistency.

Spoon the vegan face wash into your containers of choice. (I used these 2.3 oz. clear glass thick wall cosmetic jars with black lined caps from from SKS Bottle & Packaging here.)

Homemade Moisturizing Facial Toner Recipe

Don’t let your skin dictate your look. Instead, conquer your skin’s unpredictability with this homemade moisturizing facial toner recipe! This homemade facial toner recipe is made with natural ingredients that help to remove excess oil and dead skin cells, while also balancing your skin’s PH levels to help prevent dryness and breakouts.

Homemade Moisturizing Facial Toner

Skin care can be complicated especially when you have no idea what your skin is doing. Combination skin, especially, can be confusing. And, as you age, maturing skin does all kinds of craziness too.

Because I have maturing, combination skin prone to hormonal breakouts, I needed a good toner that would tackle dryness, balance my oily t-zone and help prevent acne. All without drying out my skin in the process. So I came up with this homemade moisturizing facial toner recipe to do just that!

My homemade moisturizing facial toner recipe contains several key ingredients to get the job done and get it done right! It’s made with rooibos tea, unfiltered apple cider vinegar, calendula hydrosol, jojoba oil, a blend of natural essential oils and witch hazel extract. (I specifically used the witch hazel extract from Mountain Rose Herbs as it’s double distilled and only contains 14% alcohol for a more soothing product without the sting of store bought witch hazel.)

Why Rooibos Tea?

It’s been shown in studies that rooibos tea is able to sooth and help diminish a variety of skin conditions including eczema and acne when applied topically. In addition, as it is rich in superoxide dismutase – an enzyme necessary for the production of healthy skin cells – rooibos tea has also been found effective in fighting the appearance of aging.

Rooibos tea is also hypoallergenic, meaning it won’t irritate sensitive skin. And because it has natural antibacterial properties, applying rooibos tea to skin can both help to fight acne as well as aid in alleviating bacterial skin infections.

Homemade Moisturizing Facial Toner Recipe

(with Rooibos Tea & Manuka Essential Oil)

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

2 oz. brewed rooibos tea
1 oz. witch hazel extract
1 oz. Bragg’s unfiltered apple cider vinegar
1 oz. calendula hydrosol
12 mL polysorbate 80
2 mL jojoba oil
1 mL manuka essential oil
1 mL lavender essential oil
1 mL lemongrass essential oil
8 drops tea tree essential oil

Instructions:

You’ll begin by brewing the rooibos tea for this recipe. To do so, place one teaspoon of rooibos tea into a disposable tea filter then pour 4 oz. of boiling filtered (or distilled) water over the tea bag. Allow to steep for five minutes, remove the tea bag, then cool the tea to room temperature.

This homemade moisturizing facial toner recipe is made with natural ingredients that help to remove excess oil and dead skin cells, while also balancing your skin's PH levels to help prevent dryness and breakouts.

Once the rooibos tea has cooled, measure out the rooibos tea, witch hazel extract, apple cider vinegar and calendula hydrosol and pour into a medium glass bowl.

Then, using a fresh graduated transfer pipette for each remaining ingredient, measure out and add the jojoba oil, polysorbate 80, and the essential oils. The polysorbate will cause a gel like mass in the bowl.

Simply mix well with a whisk to dissolve the gel. Keep whisking until your homemade moisturizing facial toner is once again liquid.

Now divide your homemade moisturizing facial toner between two 2 oz. amber PET Boston round bottles with a smooth black fine mist sprayer. Then label as desired for personal use. (You can find the same bottles with sprayers that I used at SKS Bottle & Packaging.)

If desired or for long term storage, I recommend also adding a preservative such as Phenoxyethanol to your homemade moisturizing facial toner once you’ve mixed all of the ingredients together and prior to pouring into your containers.

To use, spritz onto face after cleansing and gently massage into skin. Follow with a facial serum or your favorite moisturizer or day cream.

Make this easy homemade baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe to help shrink pores and conquer blackheads!

Make this easy homemade baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe to help shrink pores and conquer blackheads while cleansing your face at the same time.

Baking soda has long been used as a home remedy to help tackle tough acne and pimples. This baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipe takes that notion and adds naturally cleansing oils to help clean your skin and exfoliate it at the same time.

Keep in mind, though, that there are mixed reviews on using baking soda as a home remedy for acne. I’ve read a lot of both negative and positive information on using baking soda in a scrub or mask as an anti-acne treatment. Some find that baking soda works wonders on their acne. However, there are others who are super sensitive to baking soda. And if this is you, and baking soda causes uncomfortable redness or burning, then ditch the baking soda and opt for trying this coconut oil face scrub recipe using fine sugar or apricot kernel meal in lieu of the baking soda.

Following are a few baking soda and coconut oil face scrub recipes you can try based on your skin type. But feel free to experiment with your ingredients to find the best match for your skin type!

Four simple ingredients are then added to not only help control acne but to also soothe skin and promote healing. These ingredients are some of my favorites.

Sea Buckthorn Oil – This concentrated oil has anti-inflammatory properties that help to calm aggravated skin. Additionally, it not only helps to fight acne but it also possesses healing properties that will help to prevent acne scars from occurring. Sea Buckthorn oil is probably best praised, however, for its restorative and anti-aging properties.

Activated Charcoal – Activated charcoal naturally helps to detoxify skin of impurities, draw out dirt and oil, and, in melt and pour soap it also acts as a mild exfoliant. It’s also suitable for those prone to eczema and psoriasis.

Patchouli Essential Oil – Patchouli offers its own anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties to this soap. It’s commonly used in skin care for its ability to tackle acne prone skin, eczema, inflammation, and cracked or chapped irritated skin. It’s also prized for its cell-rejuvenating properties and its ability to lessen the look of scars. In addition it can also help to balance out oily skin.

Lavender Essential Oil – Lavender is prized for its acne fighting and healing properties as well as its antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It serves to treat acne and soothe skin while also helping to prevent scarring.

Yogurt Melt and Pour Soap Base – This melt and pour soap base is all natural and free of SLS and detergents. Plus its made with real yogurt which when applied topically has been shown to fight acne, moisturize and help to prevent premature aging.

2 ml sea buckthorn oil
1 ml patchouli essential oil
2 ml lavender essential oil

Now measure out the activated charcoal with a measuring spoon and add to the melted soap. Whisk with a fork to incorporate. Pour into your mold of choice.
