Face Scrub With Liquid Soap - Day 1

I wanted to make a face scrub that would be perfect for cleansing and exfoliating the face. I could have used one of our bases but I wanted to dip my toes into the world of Liquid Soap. I have seen a lot of people make their soap using the Hot Process method but I wasn’t feeling ready for a complete revamping of my soaping style. Today we will be making a liquid soap using the cold process method so we can prepare for this scrub. Come join me!

I chose some oils to create some lather. I wanted the base to have some lather when you rub it into the skin. These are some of my favorite types of face scrubs. One of the first oils I chose for this soap base was coconut oil. Coconut oil is a wonderful oil to have in your soaping cupboard and mine in the blog kitchen is no exception! It adds lather to your soaps and great tactile properties to lip balms, scrubs and lotions.

I also used Olive Oil. Olive Oil also contributes a smoother moisturizing feel to the soap. When making a product for the face, it is important to be gentle to the delicate skin of the face. It is also important to moisturize to keep the skin soft, supple and healthy.

We will make this liquid soap paste today and then tomorrow we will use this base to create a nice scrub for the face.
