Candlelight Creamy Hand Wash

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!

This soft, silky powder transforms into a creamy, sudsy cleanser when you work it up with a bit of warm water between your palms. It stars soft and velvety kaolin clay and skin-soothing oats, and you can blend up a batch in just a few moments from just six ingredients. You can customize the exfoliation level and easily make it nut free if you want to. Let’s get started!

Gentle Oatmeal Almond Body Wash Bar

Today we’re smooshing up a Gentle Oatmeal Almond Body Wash Bar, featuring a generous amount of colloidal oatmeal and a beautiful, gentle surfactant blend. While I did design this with a body wash in mind, you can also use it as a facial cleansing bar and shampoo. It’s really easy to make, and really lovely ❤️
