Today’s formulation sets out to dupe the rich, luxurious lather and decadent, lingering scent of the very popular Bath & Body Works foaming hand soaps, but using ingredients we can get relatively easy. I had a ton of fun with this formulation, and documented the entire process in the partner video—I highly recommend watching it to learn more about the development process. Let’s get lathery!

This silky, shimmery Candlelight Creamy Hand Wash is like a cozy hug for your hands every time you use it. As soon as I had decided on this year’s holiday themes, I knew I needed to include a Candlelight themed creamy, shimmery, gentle hand wash as I positively power through handwash and cooler days always send me towards creamier, richer formulations. I had a lot of fun developing this formulation, honing the method and getting the surfactant blend just right. The finished formulation is all kinds of silky, shimmery, and sudsy—and it makes a great body wash, too!

Today we’re mixing up a sudsy and fresh Aloe Mint Hand Wash, made with peppermint essential oil and a lovely gentle surfactant blend. I’m loving the combination of crisp & cool peppermint essential oil, soothing aloe vera, and moisturizing vegetable glycerin as warmer weather sets in! It’s easy to make, easy to make in big batches, and you can switch up the essential oil for different versions. Let’s get sudsy!

Today I’m sharing a formulation for a Super Simple Natural Foaming Hand Wash. You’ll need just five ingredients, and I’ve tried to be really conscientious of global ingredient availability so hopefully you can make this hand wash no matter where in the world you live. I’ve also kept things all-natural, and have worked to make sure all the ingredients interplay perfectly so the making part is really simple. I’m pretty proud of this—let’s dive in!

Today we’re getting sudsy and clean with a seasonably pink Conditioning Valentine’s Hand Wash! I went through a lot of handwash in the beforetimes, and that has easily doubled or tripled in the last year. Lots of handwashing + dry weather is pretty hard on my hands, so I’ve designed this hand wash formulation to get your hands clean without leaving them feeling tight or dry—like a bubbly Valentine for your hands 😄

We’re getting all kinds of sudsy today with a pearlescent and bubbly Ice Palace Body Wash! If you’re generally a fan of creamy body washes, this one is just the thing—it kicks off heaps of fluffy bubbles, smells wonderfully refreshing, and looks a bit like a liquid ice palace. I’m also a bit extra in love with the opaque, lustrous appearance of this body wash and I now want to pearl-ize all the things 😂
