Natural Homemade Eye Makeup Remover Recipe

© Rebecca’s Soap Delicatessen

Ingredients:

2 oz. avocado butter
.1 oz. kokum butter
1 teaspoon aloe vera gel
1 Tablespoons grapeseed oil
5 pellets emulsifying wax

Directions:

Using a digital kitchen scale weigh out your butters into a glass pyrex measuring cup. Add the emulsifying wax to the butters, then melt in the microwave. Remove and measure out your aloe vera gel and grape seed oil and stir into the butter and wax mixture. Mix well and allow to cool. Once cool, whisk with a fork then spoon into a jar or container of choice.

To use, simply apply to closed lids and massage lightly, then remove with a wet washcloth. Apply again and repeat for heavy makeup if necessary.

    I am always looking for new additions to my all natural makeup removal routine. Thanks for sharing this recipe. Do you keep it refrigerated?

      No need to refrigerate. Aloe vera gel contains a preservative so it should be fine without it.

      You can sub kokum with a like oil that is solid at room temperature like cocoa butter or illipe butter. You can omit the emulsifying wax. Simply stir well once the product thickens.

    Can I sub shea or mango butter for the avocado butter?

      This has a softer consistency than shea butter to provide easier glide so you may need to add a touch more oil if you sub with shea butter. Mango is significantly harder at room temps so you’d have to adjust your recipe to find the right amount of each to use to get the same lotion like consistency.

    Hi! My eyes are really sensitive to the store-bought removers so I’m anxious to try this.

    Where do I shop for the butters and the wax? Any particular type of aloe gel?

      I linked up to places they can be purchased within the recipe. Hope that helps.

    Could I put thisin a pump bottle?

    1. Rebecca D. Dillon

      It’s thicker, more like a hand cream, so you may want to test it first to see if it will work with your pump. It’d be better suited for a lotion type squeeze bottle or shampoo bottle.

    I already have jojoba oil and FCO, would either of those work as a substitute for the grapeseed oil? thanks so much!

      Yes, you can sub grape seed for another carrier oil with similar properties.
