Vegan Face Wash Recipe for Sensitive Skin
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.
Vegan Face Wash Recipe
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
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.)
Note: I recommend adding an additional preservative of your choice as adding ingredients to above the recommended amount to your base as they can make the existing preservative unstable or ineffective.
Then screw on the lids and label your jars of vegan face wash as desired for gifting or personal use. I decorated my jars using washi tape and scrapbooking supplies.
