Description

Leave your skin feeling smooth with this Charcoal and Clay Face Scrub. Made with a liquid soap base, it has a gentle lather. Additional tamanu oil and avocado oil are added because of their amazing skin benefits. In particular, they are great for oily skin. If you prefer different oil, feel free to swap them out. Just keep in mind it may change the consistency a bit!

The Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base is made exclusively from olive oil. It has a light lather and gentle cleansing properties, so it’s suitable for delicate facial skin. If you have extremely dry skin, this recipe may not be the best as it contains kaolin clay and activated charcoal. They can be drying.

Jojoba beads give this scrub a gentle amount of exfoliation. They're great for the face because they are round and won’t scratch delicate face skin.

Cleansing Charcoal Facial Scrub Project
Leave your skin feeling smooth with this Charcoal and Clay Face Scrub. It has a light lather and gentle cleansing properties, so it’s suitable for delicate facial skin.

Ingredients

Six 4 oz. Jars
10 oz. Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base
6 oz. Avocado Oil
0.5 oz. Tamanu Oil
11 oz. Kaolin Clay
4 oz. White Jojoba Beads – Medium
0.3 oz. Activated Charcoal
3 mL Tea Tree Essential Oil
0.1 oz. Optiphen
Dropper

Instructions

1

In a large mixing bowl, add 10 ounces of Natural Castile Liquid Soap Base, 6 ounces of avocado oil, and 0.5 ounces of tamanu oil. Stir until completely combined. The liquids will take on a milky appearance.

 

2

Add  mL of tea tree essential oil and 0.1 ounces of Optiphen. Stir in completely. Note about preservatives: Although this scrub doesn’t contain water, it will likely get water splashed in it during use. The extra water may cause bacteria and mold to grow. We added a preservative to be extra careful, but it is optional.

add essential oil

 

3

In a separate container, whisk together 11 ounces of kaolin clay, 0.3 ounces of activated charcoal, and 4 ounces of jojoba beads until completely combined.

add clay to a different bowl

4

Add the clay mixture into the liquid mixture in about 3-4 batches. Use a whisk to completely mix in. Adding the dry ingredients in batches helps prevent the dry ingredients from poofing up. Pour the scrub into jars and seal with the lid.

5

When you’re ready to use, apply a small amount of the scrub to wet skin. Use gentle circular motions to scrub and wash the face. Avoid the immediate eye area. Rinse off. Follow with moisturizer or other skin care. Enjoy!
