How to Make an Oil Facial Cleanser


Following on from my Oil body wash, Oil body scrub and the Collab video with Tara Lee, I’ve created this new facial cleanser formula.
Lots of you were asking about a substitute for Lumorol K5229.

Sebumol S 1000 can be used as an alternative to Lumorol K5229 to make shower oils. It is a different product so NOT a substitute, but a different way to make shower oils if Lumorol is not available to you.

It's INCI is Polyglyceryl-3 Polyricinoleate, Polyglyceryl-3 Diisostearate, Sulfated Castor Oil, Polyglyceryl-3 Caprate

It is ECOCERT and miscible with high amounts of vegetable and synthetic oils to allow you to create PEG-free clear shower oils.

It is an emulsifier that will create a lather when used in the shower. Note this only produces a slight foam, it I not bubbly like Lumorol K5229.
It is especially good for use in oil facial cleansers as it is fantastic for dry skin and will emulsify on water contact to thoroughly cleanse the skin.

The Manufacturer suggests a usage rate of 30% - 40%

Formula and recipe for a 100g Batch
Phase A
30% (30g) Sebumol S 1000
30% (30g) Sunflower Seed Oil
20% (20g) Jojoba Oil
19% (19g) Rosehip Seed Oil
0.5% (0.5g) Essential Oil of choice (or leave out)
0.5% (0.5g) Vitamin E

· Weigh all phase A ingredients into a clean sanitized beaker and combine with a stick blender to homogenize. This will take some time. Stir inbetween blending to ensure the sebumol hasn’t collected on the bottom of the beaker.
· Pour into bottle of choice and label. Bubbles will settle over time.

Another really simple recipe. You can change the oils to suit you. Sebumol also suits esters, but choose these carefully as some can be comedogenic (clog pores).
The trick to this is blending to homogenize for a long time.
You can add actives so long as they are oil soluble. You can change the essential oil for a fragrance oil if suitable, just alter the percentage of one of the other oils to compensate.
This leaves your skin feeling incredibly soft and not at all oily.
