Curious about why I use the ingredients I do? You’ve come to the right place!
Yogurt: Cow’s milk is rich in vitamin A, B-vitamins, amino acids, and other skin loving minerals and vitamins. Milk has been historically used for beauty products since ancient Egypt!
Sodium Hydroxide: Commonly known as lye, sodium hydroxide is essential for soap. During the soap making process, it reacts with the oils to make soap and is neutralized.
Bath Bomb Ingredients:
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate: This is the bubble maker in bath bombs! From my supplier’s website “[sodium lauryl sulfoacetate] is derived from coconut and palm oils, and conforms to Ecocert’s natural and organic cosmetic standard and is 100% of natural origin.”
Clay Mask Ingredients:
Behentrimonium Methosulfate, Cetyl Alcohol, and Butylene Glycol make up an ingredient called BTMS-50, which is a conditioning emulsifier. This binds together the water and skin loving oils so that the mask is a lovely spreadable, lotion-like texture.
Next, Phenoxyethanol is the main ingredient in a preservative called Optiphen, which is needed to make sure that no mold or nasty bacteria grows in your mask! Caprylyl Glycol is a carrier for the Phenoxyethanol. Optiphen is the most natural preservative I could find and is paraben and formaldehyde-free.
Mica: Have you ever picked up a rock with sparkly veins? That’s mica! The mica I use is all lab produced for quality control, but it’s still natural color.
Iron Oxides: This is another natural pigment.
I’ll be adding more information soon. If there’s an ingredient you’re wondering about, let me know!
