My (Ever Growing) Soap Addiction

I am a soap addict. It’s true. Ever since I tried my first Zum soap bar back in college I’ve been hooked on handmade cold process soaps. In fact, that’s kind of the reason I started making my own. Later down the road, when Etsy first arrived as a marketplace for handmade and vintage items way back in 1995, it was like a whole new world had opened up to me. Not only was I able to purchase handmade soaps from emerging artisans, it also led to me to eventually sell my own handmade soaps.

I no longer sell any of the handmade soaps or skin care products I create. Mostly because I love crafting, formulating, writing, wizardry and magic SO much more than retail sales. That doesn’t stop me from making my own handmade soaps though. It’s just that these days I never have to make the same soap twice. And all of my soapmaking formulations are completely different from the one prior.

Of course, I still shop on Etsy to this day. (Wait? That’s how many years later?) And, as is the way of a self confessed soap addict’s life, I still buy other people’s handmade soap.

Luckily my soap addiction stops at the production, purchase and use of handmade soaps. I’ve read, that apparently, some people are actually addicted to eating soap. That is an entirely other bag of tricks that I (thankfully) know nothing about. (And ew. Gross.)

Anyhow, I’m pretty excited about sharing my latest handmade soap recipe with you. My handmade bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe is made using one of my newest favorite ingredients, bacuri butter. (As the name implies.) However, it also contains a new butter that I’ve recently started experimenting with called murumuru butter.

An Introduction to Murumuru Butter

Like bacuri butter, murumuru butter is a sustainable product from the Brazilian Amazon Forest. It is cold pressed from the reddish-orange fruits of the Astrocaryum murumuru tree, a tall palm tree native to Brazil.

Murumuru butter has a similar melting point when compared to cocoa butter. It melts at 91.4°F, while cocoa butter melts at a slightly higher temperature between 93°F and 101°F. So an easy way to start experimenting with this natural butter, would be by replacing it for the cocoa butter in your existing recipes. In addition, murumuru can also be used in the place of some of the cocoa butter in chocolate recipes to give it a firmer consistency.

Most similar in composition to coconut oil, murumuru butter contains the same amount of lauric acid. However, unlike coconut oil, murumuru butter won’t clog your pores. A highly nourishing emollient and moisturizer, murumuru butter is also rich in vitamins A and C as well as Omega 3 & 6. Additionally, it also contains high percentages of lauric, myristic and oleic acid. These physical properties make murumuru butter particularly suited for skin care recipes that promote skin health or are used to remedy dry skin.

Due to murumuru butter’s unique composition of essential fatty acids and Pro-Vitamin A, it makes a lovely natural option for your anti-aging skin care recipes and products. These components have been shown to help restore elasticity to damaged and aging skin as well as promote healing. As such, murumuru butter makes a wonderful addition to homemade moisturizers meant to soothe eczema, psoriasis or dry and cracked skin as well as anti-aging creams and butters.

Murumuru butter is an incredibly versatile ingredient. Therefore it’s no surprise that it’s found in such a wide range of skin care and beauty products. The most common applications for murumuru butter are as part of the formulations for lotions, soaps, hair conditioners, facial masks, shampoo, oils and emulsions, skin moisturizers, depilatory waxes, lipsticks and deodorants. Also, like bacuri butter, murumuru butter can be an effective remedy against acne due to its antiseptic, anti-allergenic, antibacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory skin care properties.

About My Bacuri Butter & Murumuru Soap Recipe

My bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe creates a hard, long lasting soap bar with a stable lather. It’s formulated to cleanse and balance skin without overdrying, as is the case with many commercial soaps, as well as lend some skin conditioning properties. Left unscented, this natural handmade soap recipe reflects the natural, warm and earthy fragrance of bacuri butter with a milder aroma.

Bacuri Butter & Murumuru Soap Recipe

© Rebecca D. Dillon

Ingredients:

1.6 oz. bacuri butter (10%)
1.6 oz. murumuru butter (10%)
1.6 oz. avocado oil (10%)
1.6 oz. castor oil (10%)
2.4 oz. coconut oil (15%)
7.2 oz. pomace olive oil (45%)

4.8 fl. oz. distilled water (30.5% discount)
2.2 oz. lye/sodium hydroxide (6% superfat)

1 Tablespoon red Rhassoul clay
1 Tablespoon pink Himalayan salt (or sea salt)

Getting Started:

You will need a digital scale and a silicone soap mold for my bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe. As I make a lot of soap, I use this heavy duty Baker’s Math scale. I also used this rectangle silicone soap mold for this particular handmade soap recipe. In addition you’ll also need all other required supplies for making cold process soap from scratch. These materials include a digital thermometer and an immersion blender as well as aluminum free, heat safe containers and utensils.

If you have never made cold process soap before, you should read my cold process soapmaking tutorial before you begin. I also recommend starting with a simpler, beginner’s soap recipe with less expensive ingredients for your first try as soapmaking mistakes do happen.

Instructions:

Begin by preparing the lye solution for my natural bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe. To do this, measure out the distilled water into a heat safe container. In a separate container, weigh out the lye called for in the recipe. Now pour the lye into the water – I recommend a well ventilated area – and mix until the lye has completely dissolved. Set the lye-water solution aside in a safe location to cool.

While the lye solution cools, weigh out the carrier oils, bacuri and murumuru butters called for in my bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe. Combine your soapmaking fats in a stainless steel pot. Then gently heat the soapmaking oils on the stove over low heat just until the solids have melted.

Remove the soapmaking oils from heat and allow to cool.

Once the oils and the lye-water have reached 90°-95°F you are ready to make soap.

Left unscented to allow the warm, natural earthy scent of bacuri butter to shine through, this handmade soap recipe is another must for your recipe file!

Check the temperature of both the soapmaking oils and the lye solution before you begin. Both of these ingredients should be within ten degrees of one another.

Using a measuring spoon, measure out one Tablespoon spoon each of both the Rhassoul clay and the salt. (You do NOT want to use Dead Sea salt.) Mix into the melted soapmaking oils and butters using an immersion blender. Once the clay and salt are fully incorporated throughout the soapmaking fats, you can add the lye-water.

Carefully pour the lye-water solution into the soapmaking oils and mix with the immersion blender until you reach trace. You’ll know you’ve reached trace when you drag the blender through the soap batter and it leaves a visible trail behind. It’s a little like pudding.

Now pour the soap evenly into the cavities of your silicone soap mold. Gently cover the soap with plastic wrap or parchment paper and set aside in a safe location where it won’t be disturbed.

You should be able to unmold your natural bacuri butter & murumuru soaps the next day. Simply turn them out of the mold cavities, then allow your soap to cure for four to six weeks in a cool, dry location. After that, your handmade soaps are ready to use.

If you like my natural bacuri butter & murumuru soap recipe, then be sure to try my other bacuri butter skin care recipes. These recipes include my 3-ingredient bacuri butter body butter recipe and my anti-aging bacuri butter body balm recipe. Alternately, you can find a complete listing of all of my cold process soap recipes from over the years here.

12 Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin with Camellia Seed Oil

I may receive compensation from links on this site. See my disclosure policy.

Just because it’s summer doesn’t mean you’re free from dry skin. Summer causes dry skin too – especially after excess sun exposure. Therefore, in order to help you tackle your summer skin care needs, I’ve put together a collection of 12 summer skin care recipes for dry skin. Plus discover six summer skin care beauty tips to help protect your skin from further sun damage.

12 Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin with Camellia Seed Oil. Naturally care for your skin this summer with this collection of natural summer skin care recipes for dry or maturing skin. Plus six summer beauty tips to keep your skin hydrated and ready to fight aging caused by sun damage.

As a kid I loved summer. The heat seemed to never slow me down. I’d spend an insane amount of time outdoors romping through the woods that lined our street. I’d pull up seedling sassafras trees for their roots to make tea. I built tee pees from giant, broken tree branches and the patchwork quilts my grandmother made. I climbed trees and made my way onto low lying roofs. I made grass dolls and clay pots with mud and clay. I drew neighborhoods in sidewalk chalk along the entire cul-de-sac with roads and parking lots for our bikes.

When I was a kid I didn’t care about sunburns or tick bites. I didn’t worry about aging. And I certainly wasn’t worried about dry skin. It’s amazing how things have changed since those carefree summer days.

What hasn’t changed however is my desire for adventure and exploration of the world around me. While I now approach those desires with more caution than I did as a child, I like to think I’m still a kid at heart. Now if only I could coax my skin into that same line of thinking. (Am I right?!)

Unfortunately, as we age, our skin does as well. And likewise our skin’s needs also change. As a woman over forty, I’ve found that the key to youth is moisturizing. (And then moisturizing even more.)

One might think that in the summer you wouldn’t need to moisturize. While you may not need a thick body butter type moisturizer like you do in winter, your skin does still need stay hydrated throughout summer. This is especially true if you spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer months. So before we get into my collection of camellia oil summer skin care recipes for dry skin, I first wanted to share a few summer skin care tips.

Summer Beauty Tips. Learn how to care for your skin this summer to prevent sun damage that can cause aging. Plus 12 summer skin care recipes made with camellia seed oil.

 

Summer Skin Care Beauty Tips

1. Exfoliate.

Hot summer heat means a lot of sweating. This also means a lot of excess oil, dirt and bacteria on skin that may not only lead to breakouts, but can also cause skin to look dull. Exfoliating skin with a natural body scrub is a great way to slough off dead skin cells to brighten skin. It also allows for improved skin hydration. So when you apply a moisturizer, it really sinks in to moisturize and protect your skin.

Be sure to exfoliate in the morning. Then follow with a toner, moisturizer, SPF and then your makeup for the day. Exfoliating will also help keep your makeup in place. However, if your makeup tends to slide off in summer heat, try a makeup setting spray. (You can learn how to make your own setting spray here.)

2. Moisturize.

In addition to moisturizing daily, give skin an extra boost of hydration by using a moisturizing face mask once or twice a week. This better prepares your skin for accidental overexposure to the sun and helps to keep your skin in optimal condition. (This DIY sheet mask for sensitive skin is a great choice.)

I also recommend taking a spray toner with you on the go. In addition to using a toner under your facial moisturizer,  it’s also a great hydration boost while you’re at work or after you hit the gym. (I love this moisturizing facial toner recipe with rooibos tea. Or try a natural hydrosol spray.)

3. Drink a LOT of water.

I know you hear this a lot, but drink lots of water. It’s recommended that you drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water a day. This helps to maintain a healthy moisture balance between your skin and your body. Plus it helps with your body’s natural detoxification process.

You can infuse your water overnight with fresh fruit or vegetables in a large pitcher for flavor if desired. Or try your favorite infused water recipes in an instant pot. (Learn how here.)

Keep in mind, however, that if you drink caffeinated beverages,  you need to triple your daily water intake. (If you’re having trouble ditching the caffeine, give ashwagandha root and a vitamin B complex a try instead.)

4. Go operation overkill where sunscreen is concerned.

Sunscreen doesn’t only help to prevent sunburns, it can also help to prevent skin cancer. Even if you aren’t fair skinned, you should still be applying sunscreen. The UV rays from sun affect all skin tones  – not just those of us who freckle.

So play it safe and apply a broad spectrum sunscreen with a high SPF before and during exposure to the sun. Experts recommend reapplying sunscreen liberally every two hours. What does liberally mean exactly? Basically you should be applying a teaspoon of sunscreen to your face alone.

Save big on natural sun protection when you shop with Thrive Market!

Also keep in mind, that when combining multiple skin care products with an SPF, you aren’t actually increasing skin protection against harmful UV rays. Instead, your SPF averages out to the total of the SPF of all the products combined. So if your day cream has an SPF of 40 and your foundation is SPF 20, you’re actually getting the protection of SPF 30.

Additionally you should also avoid sun exposure between mid-morning and late afternoon whenever possible.

5. Soothe sunburned skin.

If you do get a sunburn, be sure to take measures to soothe sunburned skin. A cooling gel or an organic aloe vera gel can help calm inflammation and soothe skin. (You can even make your own after sun skin moisturizers.)

However, if skin blisters, treat the blisters as a wound to avoid infection and seek medical attention in the case of any 3rd degree burns. Your doctor can prescribe an antibacterial cream for bad burns that are more prone to infection.

6. Treat sun damaged skin.

While a tan may look great in the summer, suntans are actually a sign of sun damage. And sun damage can actually accelerate your skin’s aging process resulting in brown spots, coarse skin and even wrinkles. To counteract this, look for products that offer anti-aging skin care benefits. Anti-aging products can help to undo some of the damage caused by the sun’s UV rays as well as protect skin from further damage. (Learn how to make your own anti-aging products.)

So skip the tanning bed and avoid laying out. If you must have a summer tan, instead opt for a sunless tanner or try one of the many natural bronzing products available on the market today.

Usage & Benefits of Camellia Oil (Tea Seed Oil) in Skin Care for Natural Beauty. 6 Great Summer Beauty Tips Plus 12 Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin with Camellia Seed Oil.

Recently Mountain Rose Herbs, one of my favorite suppliers for natural ingredients, began carrying camellia seed oil. I am pretty excited about this addition to their line. Therefore I wanted to highlight this wonderful carrier oil as well as provide some recipes that utilize this amazing ingredient.

What is Camellia Seed Oil?

Camellia seed oil, also known as tea seed oil, comes from the seeds of the tea plant. The same tea plants that are used to make the tea we drink. As such, camellia seed oil has some of the same benefits as say green tea. This includes its antioxidant properties. Additionally, camellia seed oil is also rich in unsaturated fats, minerals and other nutrients including vitamins, A, B, and E.

Comprised of 80% oelic acid, camellia oil also contains linoleic acid, alpha-linolenic acid, stearic acid, vitamin E, calcium, potassium, triterpenes, saponins and squalane. These properties make camellia seed oil well suited for both natural skin car and hair care remedies and formulations.

Similar in nature to fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is the perfect luxurious alternative. Like fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is liquid at room temperature. Similarly it also has a long two year shelf life, and like fractionated coconut oil, camellia seed oil is quickly and easily absorbed by the skin.  As such, camellia seed oil won’t leave your skin feeling greasy after application.

12 Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin with Camellia Seed Oil. Naturally care for your skin this summer with this collection of natural summer skin care recipes for dry or maturing skin. Plus six summer beauty tips to keep your skin hydrated and ready to fight aging caused by sun damage.

What are the Benefits of Camellia Seed Oil for Skin?

One of the best kept secrets in the cosmetic and hair care industry, camellia seed oil is an extremely hydrating carrier oil. Studies have shown that camellia seed oil can improve the tone and texture of skin. It also can help to reduce the appearance of aging as well as strengthen brittle nails.

Additionally, camellia seed oil is also a wonderful choice for hair care. Traditionally used as a hair conditioner, this natural carrier oil also helps to eliminate dandruff as well as strengthen hair to prevent split ends and breakage.

Unlike coconut oil however, camellia oil won’t clog pores. And it’s suitable for all skin types and skin conditions, including eczema and acne prone skin. This lush carrier oil has the ability to calm inflammation and therefore can be especially beneficial at soothing irritated skin. For dry, flaky skin, using camellia seed oil results in softer, smoother skin with an overall healthier appearance. This makes camellia seed oil the perfect ingredient for your own summer skin care recipes.

12 Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin with Camellia Seed Oil. Naturally care for your skin this summer with this collection of natural summer skin care recipes for dry or maturing skin. Plus six summer beauty tips to keep your skin hydrated and ready to fight aging caused by sun damage.

Summer Skin Care Recipes for Dry Skin

Using camellia seed oil as part of your  summer skin care formulations helps to speed absorption rates of those products. I’ve found that camellia seed oil makes a nice addition to facial serums and hair care products. Other similar carrier oils – like grapeseed, safflower, marula, and macadamia nut oil – make great substitutions for camellia seed oil in a pinch.

An easy way to use camellia seed oil is to simply apply several drops of oil to the palm of your hand. Then rub your palms together and smooth over your hair to instantly add shine and smooth flyaways.

Following is my collection of summer skin care recipes. Each of these skin care recipes contain camellia oil and create wonderful products suited for dry skin and hair. Don’t just reserve these recipes for summer though. They are also beneficial to use throughout the year to tackle other seasonal dry skin issues.

.75 oz. oat butter (or another hydrogenated butter)
.25 oz. rosehip seed oil
.2 oz. French green clay

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.)

Calendula & Goat Milk Facial Scrub Recipe for Sensitive Skin

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2.5 oz. goat milk powder
2.5 oz. colloidal oatmeal
2.5 oz. baking soda
1 oz. apricot kernel meal
.2 oz. calendula petals, finely ground

Directions:

You can typically find powdered goat milk in the baking section of your grocery store. Colloidal oatmeal is typically in the pharmacy section.

To create this natural facial scrub recipe for sensitive skin you’ll need to begin by weighing out the calendula petals using a digital scale. Next, grind the calendula petals in a coffee grinder or food processor.

Now weigh out all of the remaining ingredients using a scale and combine with the ground calendula petals in a large bowl. Mix well. Then spoon into air tight containers for storage.

To use your homemade facial scrub, simply remove a small amount of the scrub from the container and mix with just enough water, honey or favorite carrier oil (up to one Tablespoon) to form a paste. (For extra dry or mature skin, try mixing this scrub with shea nut oil or rosehip seed oil.) Then apply to facial skin in a circular motion for up to one minute. Alternately, you can use this scrub as a mask by applying and letting set for 5-10 minutes. Rinse with water to remove and pat dry. Store your scrub in a cool dry location.
