To make a DIY LAVENDER SUGAR SCRUB

We’ll be needing

Phase 1

75g of oil ( lavender oil and sunflower oil mix)

20g of wax ( E-wax and cetyl alcohol 10g each)

The remaining 5 grams of excipients will be added later.

Add wax into the oil and double on low heat till it melts totally.

Measure 50g of lavender buds into a porcelain mortal (you can substitute with a stainless plate) and mash slightly. This will help the goodness within the buds to come out.

Get a mixing bowl, pour your melted oil into it

Measure 300g of white sugar into it and mix well.

From mashed lavender buds, add half of it into the sugar and mix.

 

Next phase

2g of liquid Germall plus or optiphen plus

2g of polysorbate 80

1g of lavender fragrance 

10-15 drops of lavender essential oil 

A dash of lavender mica pigment.

Mix all into the mix and mix very well. This will give a emulsified like consistency.


Whip some more before transferring into your jar. Place the remaining mashed buds on top of your scrub for beauty purpose

Your lavender sugar scrub is ready to be used. The polysorbate 80 is a surfactant that will form a slight foam with water meets with the sugar scrub and will help the waxes and oils to wash away from the skin easily.
