Gentle Face Soap Recipe with Rose Clay I Tweak & Tinker
When I was a teenager and in my 20s I used to cleanse it morning and night and the shine never seemed to disappear. This is because my skin was overcompensating for the natural oils that it was losing twice a day. The recipe below creates quite delicate bars of soap that are perfect for cleansing all skin types including sensitive skin. The lather is rich and creamy and the addition of rich shea butter gives the bars a soothing creaminess.
Gentle Shea Butter Face Soap Recipe and Instructions
Charcoal face soap seems to be everywhere right now, along with charcoal face masks and bath bombs. It binds to dirt and oil and pulls it out of pores, leaving skin clean and refreshed. It contains activated charcoal , which gives the bars a rich black color.
I actually put it together at the request of someone who wanted the same or similar oils that I use in my Anti Aging Serum Recipe in a face bar. You can definitely formulate a face bar with a higher superfat value the amount of oils left over after saponification so that your bar is not drying to the skin. You can also formulate the recipe so that you are using oils with high vitamin A ad E values, etc. You can learn more about how to make cold process soap here on my blog: 7 Easy Steps to Homemade Lye Soap for Beginners.
