If you’ve seen our banana foaming sugar scrub recipe, then you’ll already have heard about Lumorol. If not, go watch that, it’s available here https://youtu.be/GSlkecmTRJY
Today though, I’m making use of it for a simple oil facial cleanser. Nice and moisturising like body oil, but equally cleansing. An oil body wash is a must-try recipe for beginners.
Oil-based body washes cleanse like a normal body wash, but produce the softest silkiest bubbles and leave your skin feeling amazing.
20% Fractionated Coconut Oil
10% Sweet Almond Oil
5% Jojoba Oil
3.5% Camellia Oil
1% Essential Oil
0.5% Vitamin E
Recipe for a 50g Batch
10g Fractionated Coconut Oil
5g Sweet Almond Oil
2.5g Jojoba Oil
1.75g Camellia Oil
0.5g Essential Oil
0.25g Vitamin E
- Measure out Lumorol into a beaker and put aside
- Mix the oils from phase B in a beaker.
- Add to the Lumorol and stir. This should result in a reasonably stable product if you do not have access to the right equipment. If you have an overhead stirrer however, please use that to get the best results, as although the suppliers don’t tend to state this, I have found the manufacturer specifically reccomends it.
- Add the fragrance and vitamin e and stir gently
- Pour into bottles.
There is no need to add a preservative as this is an anhydrous formulation. However, it will be coming into contact with water and that means some may get inside the bottle. So if you want to add a preservative, then replace it from the oil phase.
There are no anhydrous alternatives for Lumorol that I know of, but you can customise by changing up the oils that you use if you want. I’ve chosen fractionated coconut oil as it’s lightweight and easily absorbed, and sweet almond as it absorbs well and penetrates deep into the skin as does Jojoba and Camellia Oil provides intensive nourishment to the skin and helps to reduce inflammation and maintain skin elasticity.
Make sure that if you use coconut oil, it is the fractionated kind and not the kind that can solidify, as you don’t want to clog your drains.
Change up the fragrance for a different scent.
