Strawberry & Chocolate Fudge Solid Sugar Scrub Bars Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients (fudge bottom):

2.5 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour soap base
.35 oz. dark cocoa butter wafers
3.65 oz. refined shea butter
.5 oz. avocado oil
.7 oz. sweet almond oil
.5 oz. chocolate fragrance oil, or similar
16.5 oz. granulated white sugar

Ingredients: (strawberry icing):

1.25 oz. detergent free baby buttermilk melt & pour base
2 oz. refined shea butter
.6 oz. sweet almond oil
.25 oz. strawberries & champagne fragrance oil, or similar
8.25 oz. granulated white sugar
liquid red soap colorant, to suit

Instructions:

To create my strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars, you’ll begin by making the fudge bottom and using those ingredients first. You’ll need a digital scale to weigh out the ingredients as well as an Ozera 6-Cavity Rectangle Silicone Soap Mold or similar.

Begin by weighing out the dark cocoa butter wafers, shea butter and soap base in the amounts called for in the ingredients for the fudge bottom. Combine in a double boiler and gently heat until melted.

If you do not have a double boiler, you can use a microwave. You’ll need to combine and melt the dark cocoa butter and shea butter first at 40-50% power until mostly melted then melt the soap base with the butters the rest of the way. You do not want to overheat your ingredients so stopping and melting the ingredients as you go is also helpful.

Once melted remove from heat.

Now weigh out the avocado and sweet almonds oils along with the fragrance oil of your choice and stir into the melted butters and soap base.

Next you’ll want to weigh out the sugar into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

Pour the sugar into the liquid mixture of oils, butters, soap and fragrance mixing as you go. Once thoroughly combined use a spatula to pour/spoon the mixture evenly into all six of the mold cavities. Flatten with the spatula. (Hint. Place your mold on a cutting board for easy transfer to another location later.)

The mixture will almost fill each cavity. This is what you want so you can build up an icing top.

While the bottom of your fudge solid sugar scrub bars are setting up, you’ll need to mix up the ingredients for the icing top!

Using a digital scale to weigh out all of the ingredients, heat and melt the shea butter and baby buttermilk soap base. Add the sweet almond oil and fragrance along with 2-4 drops of the liquid soap colorant. Then, just as you did with the fudge bottom, mix in the sugar.

Once the sugar is thoroughly combined you can begin spooning the strawberry “icing” top onto the tops of the fudge bottoms in your mold. Evenly add the mixture to the tops of all the mold cavities and then go back and spread the tops with a spatula or butter knife until the you reach your desired look.

(Hint. For a truer pink avoid using carrier oils that have a deep yellow or green tint to them if making substitutions for the sweet almond oil. You’ll also want to avoid fragrance oils with vanilla in them if you don’t want your tops to turn tan to brown over time.)

Not only do my fudge solid sugar scrub bars make great homemade gifts they're absolutely perfect for dry winter skin!

Sprinkle the tops with fine ground pink Himalayan salt and fine ground sea salt as desired. This is optional but I think it looks nice!

Now place your fudge solid sugar scrub bars in the fridge until they harden completely.

Once your strawberry and chocolate fudge solid sugar scrub bars have set up, carefully unmold them. Using a Chef’s knife, cut each scrub bar in half.

Then wrap each of the two halves in Kabnet wax – or similar grease resistant deli wrap – and tie off them off with baker’s twine. (Hint. Places like Sam’s Club sell Kabnet Wax.)

If you are making my fudge solid sugar scrub bars to sell rather than to gift or for personal use, then you’ll need to be sure to label the bottoms of these to meet state and federal laws. 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.

DIY Rose Sugar Scrub

Ingredients:

27 oz. white granulated sugar
9 oz. safflower oil
.45 oz. rose fragrance oil, of choice or 25 drops of rose absolute
dried red roses or dried whole rosebuds, to suit

Instructions:

To make this DIY rose sugar scrub, begin by using a digital scale to weigh out the sugar.

Next, add rose petals to suit, mixing them in with the sugar until they evenly distributed.

In a separate container, weigh out the safflower oil.

If using a fragrance oil, weigh out the fragrance and mix it into the safflower oil. (You can also any other skin safe fragrance oil that you’d like.) If you’re using rose absolute, add 25 drops instead. Rose absolute is pretty potent, so a little will go a long way.

Now pour the sugar and rose mixture into the scented oil and mix thoroughly.

Evenly fill three 8 oz. jars with your rose sugar scrub. I used the 8 oz.Black PET PCR Jars with Black Smooth Lined Caps from SKS Bottle & Packaging specifically for this project. You can find them here.

Feather Clipart from Huckleberry Hearts

All that’s left is to label for jars for gifting! For my labels I purchased feather clipart from Huckleberry Hearts on Etsy, then used a Word program to create my labels. (Learn how to create your own custom labels with my step-by-step tutorial here.) Then simply print your newly created labels onto label sheets – I get mine from World Label – and apply to your jars.

If you’re making your DIY rose sugar scrub to sell (for small commercial use) and want to use the same clipart as I have but without credit, you would need to purchase a commercial license from the creator.

You’ll also want to make sure you label your rose sugar scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. 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.

Cardamom & Pumpkin Spice Solid Coffee Scrub Recipe

Ingredients:

1.5 oz. pumpkin spice ground coffee
.25 oz. allspice powder
2.5 oz. fine sea salt
2 oz. fine ground pink Himalayan salt
2 oz. white granulated sugar
.75 oz. cupuacu butter
1.75 oz. cocoa butter
2 oz. refined shea butter (or sal butter)
.1 oz. Cardamom True Sugar fragrance oil

Instructions:

You’ll need a six-cavity silicone gingerbread mold for my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe. This recipe will yield four solid gingerbread shaped coffee scrubs.

Using a digital scale, weigh out the butters into a large glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat in the microwave at 50% power until melted. (Alternately you may use a double boiler.) Set aside.

In a separate glass container weigh out the spices, coffee, salt and sugar. Use a fork to mix the dry ingredients until they are thoroughly combined.

Now weigh out the fragrance oil and stir into the melted butter mixture. Mix to combine.

Slowly pour the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix.

Once the ingredients are evenly distributed throughout, pour the mixture into four of the gingerbread shaped cavities of your silicone mold.

Allow your solid coffee scrub to fully solidify and harden before removing them from the mold’s cavities. (You can put your mold in the refrigerator to speed up this part of the process. Placing your mold onto a cutting board before pouring the coffee scrub mixture into the mold will make it easier to transport.)

Once you’ve unmolded your solid coffee scrubs, wrap them tightly in foodservice film or place them individually into cello bags for gifting.

If you are making my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe to sell, you’ll need to label your solid coffee scrubs appropriately to meet state and federal laws. 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.

To use your solid coffee scrubs, simply massage the bar – or a piece of the bar – onto wet skin in a warm-hot shower. Then rinse and pat dry. Be sure to store your solid coffee scrubs in a cool, dry location when not in use to extend the life of the product.

Live in a warmer climate? Make these solid coffee scrubs so they have a slightly higher melt point by making the following changes to my cardamom & pumpkin spice solid coffee scrub recipe: 1.5 oz. of shea butter (instead of 2 oz.) and 1 oz. cupuacu butter (instead of .75 oz.) This will also make them more shelf stable for shipping purposes.

This homemade coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil is inspired by the Frank Body Original Coffee Scrub. Scented with a fresh blend of orange, coconut and cardamom, my coffee scrub recipe contains naturally emollient sweet almond oil, mineral rich pink Himalayan salt, anti-inflammatory blood orange essential oil, brown sugar, and ground coffee to exfoliate, smooth and brighten dull, aging or acne prone skin. Plus there are free printable labels for gifting!

Orange & Chamomile Exfoliating Foaming Cleanser Recipe

Inspired by Suki's Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

Inspired by Suki’s Exfoliate Foaming Cleanser, my orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe gently exfoliates your face with natural sugar while also helping to purify pores, remove dry skin, even skin tone and smooth and soften your complexion.

This all natural foaming facial cleanser lathers as you massage it onto damp or wet skin to wash away excess dirt and makeup, while sweet almond oil – a mild, hypoallergenic oil – helps to protect skin against UV radiation damage as well as aid in keeping skin soft and supple.

Sweet almond oil is especially suited for sensitive skin and is easily absorbed by skin. Due to its high vitamin A content, it can also help to prevent acne. In addition it aids in relieving inflammation, itchiness and redness that may be caused by eczema or psoriasis. (If you suffer from eczema or psoriasis, be sure to also check out my homemade pine tar soap recipe.)

Blood orange essential oil is also wonderful for helping to reduce skin inflammation as well as flushing out toxins, while chamomile has also long been praised for its anti-inflammatory properties in skin care.

Ingredients:

7 oz. white granulated sugar
.8 oz. Dr. Bronner’s Baby Mild Unscented Hemp Liquid Castile Soap
.25 oz. sweet almond oil
.05 oz. castor oil
1 Tablespoon chamomile flowers, ground or chamomile flower powder
1 mL blood orange essential oil

Using a digital scale, begin by weighing out the liquid Castile soap, sweet almond oil and castor oil into a glass container.

Using a graduated transfer pipette, measure out the blood orange essential oil and add to the soap and oil mixture.

How to make an exfoliating foaming cleanser recipe for your face!

Whisk well to combine thoroughly. The mixture will kind of resemble scrambled eggs with a bit of butter. (Weird, right?)

Weigh out the sugar into a separate container.

Then measure out the ground chamomile flowers using a measuring spoon and whisk into the sugar.

Slowly pour the sugar and chamomile flower mixture into the container with the liquid mixture, stirring as you go.

Continue mixing until all of the ingredients for your exfoliating foaming cleanser are thoroughly combined.

You may also want to consider a natural preservative.

To use your orange & chamomile exfoliating foaming cleanser, simply scoop out the desired amount then massage onto your wet face in circular motion. Rinse, then pat dry and follow with your favorite toner and moisturizer.

Moisturizing Coffee Scrub Recipe with Non-Comedogenic Ingredients

Disclosure: Blog posts may contain affiliate links for which I receive a small commission when you make a purchase. Full disclosure can be found here.



Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won't clog pores! Plus alternative ingredients you can use that have a low comedogenic rating.

Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won’t clog pores as well as about alternative non-comedogenic ingredients you can substitute. In addition to this moisturizing coffee scrub recipe, I’ve also provided two versions of printable labels you can use for your finished coffee scrubs so can give them as homemade gifts!

You may recall my previous recipe for making an orange and coconut scented coffee scrub recipe without coconut oil. Within the content of that blog post, I explained why you don’t want to use coconut oil in your body scrubs. Coconut oil has a fairly high comedogenic rating of 4. This means that it can clog pores and cause acne when used. So I crafted a moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that used sweet almond oil in lieu of coconut oil. Sweet almond oil has a comedogenic rating of 2, which is moderately low, and contains essential fatty acids as well as vitamins A and E. It’s also an effective emollient for moisturizing and is easily absorbed by the skin as well.

However, there are many many other oils and butters you can use in place of both coconut oil and sweet almond oil as well that have a comedogenic rating of 0 or 1. Ideally you want your coffee scrub ingredients to have a comedogenic rating of 0, meaning it won’t clog pores at all. This is especially true if you have acne prone skin. Both mango butter and shea butter have a comedogenic rating of 0. Therefore I chose to use mango butter in my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe. (Alternately, you can substitute the mango butter with shea butter.)

In addition to the mango butter in my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe, I also used unscented liquid Castile soap to help aid in washing everything off at the end of your shower, while still leaving your skin moisturized and soft.

(Did you know that the PH of both cold process and melt and pour soap prohibits the growth of mold and bacteria growth in your soaps? Liquid soap doesn’t need a preservative either, however, if you’re introducing water into the soap during storage – such as in a scrub situation – a preservative won’t hurt. You can learn more about preservatives within this article at Soap Queen blog here.)

Learn how to make your own homemade moisturizing coffee scrub recipe that won't clog pores! Plus alternative ingredients you can use that have a low comedogenic rating. Plus how to make your own "foaming" coffee scrub recipe and printable labels for your finished coffee scrubs!

If you find the mango (or shea butter) makes this scrub difficult to wash off you or your tub – FYI you can get rid of stains in a snap with a smidge of Dawn dish detergent – then you can substitute the mango butter with liquid Castile soap. Or, to keep the extra moisturizing properties of this coffee scrub recipe, you can simply substitute the mango butter with another carrier oil.

Carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 0 – meaning they are non-comedogenic and won’t clog pores at all – are argan oil, hemp seed oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil.  Aloe vera gel also has a 0 comedogenic rating, though if you’re using it in your coffee scrub, then you’ll definitely need to add a preservative.

Carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 1, which is considered low, include emu oil, neem oil, pomegranate seed oil, rosehip seed oil, and sea buckthorn oil.

Neem oil, while a fabulous carrier oil, has a strong nutty, garlic like odor. So if you choose to use neem oil in your coffee scrub, then use it as only a small portion of the recipe with another carrier oil making up the bulk. Your fragrance would then be able cover up the smell of the neem oil.

The same would go for sea buckthorn oil. While sea buckthorn oil doesn’t have an offensive odor, it’s likely to dye your skin orange when used in high concentrations. It’s also a lot more expensive, so you’ll want to use this one sparingly in conjunction with another carrier oil making up the bulk of the recipe.

And finally, carrier oils with a comedogenic rating of 2, or a moderately low chance of clogging pores, include sweet almond oil (previously mentioned), apricot kernel oil, avocado oil, borage oil, baobab oil, evening primrose oil, grapeseed oil, hazelnut oil, jojoba oil, peach kernel oil, pumpkin seed oil, sesame oil and tamanu oil.

Following you’ll find my moisturizing coffee scrub recipe with mango butter. But feel free to make substitutions as desired with your carrier oil(s) of choice for the mango butter and liquid Castile soap.

Moisturizing Coffee Scrub Recipe with Mango Butter

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

4.5 oz. coffee beans, ground
1.25 oz. Epsom salt
1 oz. pink Himalayan salt, fine ground
2 oz. white sugar
.75 oz. mango butter
2.25 oz. unscented liquid Castile soap
.35 oz. cardamon mocha fragrance oil, or similar
.25 oz. blood orange essential oil

Instructions:

Using a digital scale, weigh out the ground coffee, salt and sugar. Combine in a glass bowl or large glass Pyrex measuring cup.

Mix the dry ingredients together with a fork to ensure even distribution.

Now weigh out the mango butter and place in a glass Pyrex measuring cup. Heat at 50% power in the microwave until melted. Alternately, you can also melt the mango butter in a double boiler.

Next, weigh out the Castile soap, fragrance oil and essential oil. Stir into the melted mango butter and mix well to combine all the ingredients.

Spoon the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and mix well, using a fork to whisk all of the ingredients – wet and dry – together until they are combined thoroughly.

Now spoon your moisturizing coffee scrub into two clear plastic 8 oz. low profile jars. Alternately, you can also use two 8 oz. High Barrier Kraft Paper Stand up Zipper Pouch Bags. You can also use traditional pantry jars, which are classic wide-mouth, clear glass jars with a rubber gasket seal and easy-to-use clamp down lid.

If you’d like to add my moisturizing mango butter coffee scrub labels (pictured) you can download the PDF for these printable labels here. Print the PDF file onto a full size white label sheet. (I got my labels from WorldLabel.) Cut out the labels, remove the backing and adhere to the front of your containers.

The resulting coffee scrub will have a cleansing effect and a low lather in addition to exfoliating skin.
