MAKING ANTI-AGING FACE SOAP

In this article, we will see how making Anti-Aging Face soap:

VEGAN
MOISTURIZING

START TO FINISH TIME:
1 to 2 hours,
24 hours insulation,
4 to 6 weeks to cure 

SCENT: CARROT, FRANKINCENSE, MYRRH, AND GERANIUM

The apricot kernel oil and carrot seed, frankincense, myrrh, and geranium essential oils were chosen specifically in this recipe to aid the repair of mature skin. The ingredients are known to strengthen skin by providing nutrients like enriching oleic and linoleic acid, vitamin A, and other beneficial properties. These qualities, along with the moisturizing and gentle cleansing ability, make this a great face soap.

SAFETY FIRST! Remember to wear your safety equipment and mix the lye water outside. Tell everyone you live with that where you’re working is off limits. Give yourself enough time to complete the recipe.

EQUIPMENT

  • Kitchen Scale
  • Glass Bowls
  • Large spoon
  • Large stainless steel pot
  • Small zip-topplastic bag
  • Mold
  • Thermometer
  • Parchment Paper
  • Stick Blender (or hand mixer)
  • Rubber Spatula
  • Blanket

INGREDIENTS

  • 300gr (10 ounces) Olive Oil
  • 150gr (5 ounces) Apricot Kernel Oil 
  • 120gr (4 ounces) Cocoa Butter
  • 270gr (9 ounces) Coconut Oil
  • 120gr (4 ounces) Castor Oil
  • 60gr (2 ounces) Shea Butter
  • 120gr (4.1 ounces) Lye
  • 390gr (12.9 ounces) Water
  • 7,5gr (0.25 ounce) Carrot seed Essential Oil
  • 7,5gr (0.25 ounce) Frankincense Essential Oil
  • 4,5gr (0.15 ounce) Myrrh Essential Oil
  • 15gr (0.5 ounce) Geranium Essential Oil

1. HEAT THE FATS/OILS:

In a large pot, combine the olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, apricot kernel oil, cocoa butter and shea butter. Heat over medium-low heat until they are melted and incorporated. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°).

2. MIX THE LYE WATER:

Put on safety gear, including protective eyewear, a mask, gloves, and long sleeves. Outside, carefully add the lye crystals to the water and stir until dissolved. Allow to cool to 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°). If the oils and lye water cool at different rates, you can use a cold- or hot-water bath in the sink.

3. PREPARE THE MOLD:

While the oils and lye water cool, line the mold with parchment paper.

4. COMBINE AND BRING TO TRACE:

When both the oils and lye water are 100°F(38C°) to 110°F(45C°), carefully pour the lye water into the pot of oils. Use a stick blender (or hand mixer) to mix for 1 to 2 minutes and then let the mixture rest for 4 to 5 minutes. Repeat mixing and resting until light trace.

5. MIX IN NATURAL ADDITIVES:

When the soap reaches light trace, add the carrot seed, frankincense, myrrh, and geranium essential oils and blend for 30 seconds.

6. MOLD THE SOAP:

Pour the soap mixture into the mold, cover with a lid or parchment paper and insulate with a blanket for 24 hours.

7. CUT AND CURE:

Remove the soap from the mold. If it seems too soft to remove, wait another 12 to 24 hours before removing. Cut the soap into 12  bars. Allow the bars to cure in a well-ventilated location for 4 to 6 weeks.
