Looks like chocolate, smells like rose, feels like silk, and cleanses and nourishes skin like a dream.
Today, we're going to combine powdered rose, rhassoul and red clay for this no-soap, skin-loving cleanser. If you haven't tried making or using a soap-free face cleanser yet, maybe this how-to will inspire you to give it a try.
Don't worry if you don't have these exact ingredients at hand, I've listed possible substitutes.
Here's how I put this product together.
The FormulaThis amount will fill a 100 ml jar
- 10 gr cocoa butter (or other hard butter)
- 30 gr palm oil (or coconut oil)
- 38 gr castor oil (or almond oil)
- 30 gr rhassoul (or clay)
- 20 gr red clay (or other clay)
- 0,8% preservative
- 5 gr powdered rose (or chamomille, green tea, or other herb)
Always measure your ingredients by weight. If they are liquid, place a container on a scale, and pour until the scale measures the desired weight. Easy peasy!
Melt the fats and oil slowly over low heat - monitoring the mixture at all times. You don't want to overheat!
I've been doing 2 different formulas simultaneously as of late, so what you see above is the basis for 2 cleansers.
When the fats are just about to be fully melted, remove from heat and stir until thoroughly melted.
Add remaining ingredients, stir, and pour into a jar.
Let set until cool. (15 minutes in the refrigerator should do it if you want to speed the process up).

Adding a label is optional, but it's a real good idea to note the production date and place it on the bottom of the jar.
