What Does A Foaming Bath Whip Consists Of?
Making foaming bath whip at home is actually not that hard. Below you’ll find a list of ingredients you need to make one yourself. However, I understand that it may look a lot but believe me, it’s not. Once you’ve bought all your ingredients the first time, you’ll have most of what you need for the next batches you’ll make in the future, so it’s only the first time that it might be a bit “overwhelming.”
The creamy soap base is the most important and must be followed thoroughly to achieve good results. Some elements are needed to make the fluffy soap, and the manufacturer’s guidelines must be strictly followed in the usage of the product and its quantity.
The main ingredient and the one that probably makes this product so smooth is Glycerin. Without it, you won’t have a foaming bath whip. The glycerine absorbs moisture from the air and replenishes and repairs the skin when used, so it’s the most crucial element. They are perfect for dry and sensitive skin as they hydrate the skin and keep it from getting tugged under the scorching sun.
The ingredients that are needed are:
- Castor Oil
- Sunflower Oil
- Stearic Acid
- Shea Butter
- Coconut Oil
- Potassium Hydroxide
- Sodium Hydroxide
- Distilled Water
- Kaolin Clay
- Germaben II-e
And this is it, once you’ve bought these (or maybe have some of them already at home), you are good to go! It can be used as it is, or you can add various other fragrances you prefer, like vanilla, green tea, rose tea, almond tea, etc. Your favorite essential oils or perfumes can be added to the mixture so it can be more unique. Though it only consists of 5% of fragrance substances, it can still be powerful and quite intense.
