Lumorol K5229 Experiment - Foaming Body Butter Bars

I’ve been thinking of other ways to use Lumorol K5229, and thought that a solid foaming body wash would be pretty cool, so here’s a bit of an experiment.  It likely needs to tweaking to get the ideal feel, but here is a way to make NOT SOAP with Lumorol K229.

Formula and recipe for a 150g Bar

Phase A

35% (70g) Lumorol K5229
32.3% (64.6g) Cocoa Butter
10% (20g) Coconut Oil
10% (20g) Jojoba Oil
10% (20g) Candelilla Wax

Phase B

2% (4g) Fragrance Oil
0.5% (1g) Vitamin E
Up to 0.2% (0.4g) Mica or Pigment


  • Weigh all phase A ingredients into a clean sanitized beaker and heat to melt. Use a Bane Marie (pan of 1-2” of water, place you heat proof beaker in the water).
  • Once melted, remove from the heat and stir to combine.
  • Allow to cool to 40 degrees C
  • Add phase B ingredients and stir until combined.
  • Pour into either bar moulds or push up sticks.
  • Allow to set in the fridge (away from food) for a minimum of 1 hour.


I added the Lumorol in the heated phase as some guides say yes, others say at room temp.  I think if I was making this again, I’d maybe add after the heated phase when the oil phase had cooled slightly, but subject to stability testing, it seems fine.  Its flash point is above 100 degrees C, so will be safe to heat to the temperatures needed to melt the oil phase.

You can add any oil soluble actives in the cool down phase that you like, so long as they are compatible.

No pH test is required, nor a preservative, as this is an anhydrous (waterless) product.
