Demarah’s Butter Cream Foaming Scrubs

Thanks to Demarah for generously sharing her process of formulating these phenomenal recipes for foaming scrubs.

Demarah was after a thicker, whipped-cream-y, foaming scrub – so the experiments began.  The V2 and V2a refers to her cataloguing of the number of trial batches, I have left these on her formulas, as this is part of her process of perfecting her scrubs.

We have suggested a weight of 400g, therefore the sugar portion is also 400g.  This can of course be adjusted to suit your personal taste and requirements.

 

Buttercream v2
(A fluffier, scrubbier, and more conditioning Cream!)

 

Method:

 

  1. Melt E Wax NF, Conditioning Emulsifier, Stearic Acid and Cocoa Butter

  2. Stir in Shea Butter and Coconut Oil until melted

  3. GENTLY fold in SLSA (wear a mask; as SLSA is dusty and tastes AWFUL)

  4. Let cool until it looks very thick

  5. Stir in Olive Oil, Phenoserve and Fragrance or Essential Oils

  6. Whip until fluffy – using electric beaters

  7. Stir in sugar

  8. Whip again until you get desired texture

 
Buttercream v2a (made with a liquid surfactant instead of SLSa)
 
 
Method

  1. Melt E Wax NF, Stearic Acid and Cocoa Butter

  2. Stir in Shea and Virgin Coconut Oil until melted

  3. Let cool until it looks very thick

  4. Stir in liquid surfactant (PBS or Polyglucose)

  5. Blend together well

  6. Stir in Phenoserve and Fragrance or Essential Oils

  7. Whip until fluffy

  8. Stir in sugar; the texture is more gelatinous than whipped cream; much more suited to a malibu tube than a jar


    This is less creamy, more gentle on the skin, and makes more bubbles. Without the sugar, it would be nice as a foaming body butter (without the sugar added it's much more butter-y!)

     


    There are incompatibilities between Non ionic surfactants such as the Polysorbates and PEG groups and Paraben preservatives. This means they may de-activate the protection these preservatives give.  Alternatively, use Optiphen Plus or Liquid Germall Plus

    Polyglucose
    PBS Blend – one out of the three components is a Non Ionic
    Sodium Lauryl Sarcosinate
    Glyceryl Cocoate
    Oliv-Esters
