Emulsified Lip Scrub

Emulsified Lip Scrub

Strawberry Aroma Flavour gives this lovely sugar lip scrub a wonderful fruity scent. Not only will it keep your lips soft but it can also be used as an exfoliating hand scrub too. When rinsed off with warm water it becomes lotion-like.

 

Stage 1 (Heat until melted)

49% Apricot Kernel Oil (or any carrier oil of your choice)

10% Cocoa Butter

10% Emulsifying Wax (BTMS 25)

 

Stage 2 (Cool down)

30% Golden Caster Sugar

1% Strawberry Aroma Flavour

100% Total

 

Method:

  • Heat the Stage 1 (fat stage) ingredients in a stainless steel or borosilicate glass beaker in a double boiler (bain marie) until they are just melted. There is no need to use a thermometer.
  • Remove from the heat and place in a pan of cold water. Keep stirring with a spatula until it looks custard like and is beginning to set up around the side of the beaker, but is still pourable.

  • Add the Stage 2 ingredients and stir in thoroughly to combine all the ingredients.
  • Continue to cool either in a pan of cold water or the ‘fridge. You may notice the sugar settling to the bottom but don’t worry. As the Lip Scrub sets firmer simply stir it all together again and the sugar should stay suspended in the mixture.
  • Scoop into pots and label.
  • As there is no water in this product, no preservative is needed.

 

How to use:

Scoop out a small amount of Emulsified Lip Scrub and rub gently over the lips for a minute or so. Rinse off with warm water and pat dry. Your lips will feel so much smoother and kissable.
