What is a Foaming Sugar Scrub Used For?

A foaming sugar scrub is a versatile bath and body product used primarily for exfoliating and cleansing the skin. The combination of a foaming agent and sugar makes it effective at removing dead skin cells while also providing a rich, luxurious lather that cleanses the skin. This dual action helps to leave the skin feeling soft, smooth, and refreshed. Foaming scrubs are often used in spa treatments and can be customized with various fragrances and colors to enhance the sensory experience, making them a popular choice for both personal use and gifting.

Materials List for Foaming Sugar Scrub Recipe

Directions for How to Make Foaming Sugar Scrub

Step 1: Take 2 lbs of Foaming Bath Butter base and place in your mixing bowl. Cut up the base using a butter knife. It will feel like cutting into butter. The smaller pieces make it easier to begin whipping.

Step 2: If you’re using a stand mixer, begin slowly beating the base using a Flat Beater for about 30 seconds. This helps to prevent the clumping up of the Foaming Bath Butter Base inside the wire whip beaters when you get ready to whip the base.

Step 3: Add your favorite carrier oil or butter to the base to make it more moisturizing. You can use up to 2 ounces of oil or butter to 1 pound of foaming bath butter base. I am adding one of my favorite oils, Apricot Kernel Oil. Weigh out 4 ounces. Heat up the oil in the microwave before adding to the base to help soften up the base and help with the whipping. You want it warm, but not too hot. Take the temperature of your carrier oil and make sure to keep it to around 118 – 120 degrees before adding it. Do not make the oil hotter than 122 degrees Fahrenheit because doing so will break down the properties of the preservative.

Step 4: Add the Fragrance Oil: For a 2 lb base add 3% fragrance oil (1 ounce). I used Little Black Dress Fragrance Oil because of the delicate femininity of the scent.

Step 5: If working with a stand mixer, switch to your whip beater and start timing yourself. Begin whipping the Foaming Bath Butter Base on low – as it becomes smoother gradually increase to high (about 30 seconds). At the 2-minute mark, stop the mixer and scrape off the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula, then continue to whip on high for a total of 5-10 minutes. You will notice that it begins to increase in volume. Stop when the base doubles in volume. If you whip it to 3 or 4 times its volume the foaming Bath Butter will collapse on you.

Adding Sugar

For this tutorial I used your basic grocery store sugar. You can later experiment with Brown Sugar, Organic Sugar, larger crystals, smaller crystals and so on.

Step 6: Now this is where we left off from the original tutorial – next steps are easy peasy! Take the whipped Foaming Bath Butter and slowly add the sugar. Begin by adding 1 lb of sugar and slowly mix in with your spatula – do not use your mixer at this stage. You are folding the sugar into your whipped base.

Step 7: Test the mix and decide if you would like more sugar. Make sure you add enough sugar to the base – adding too little will cause the sugar to dissolve, so your goal is to over-saturate. It’s important the whip become over-saturated to prevent dissolving sugar. I decided to add 8 more ounces to the mixture to ensure super-saturation and a perfect scrubby feeling. That’s it!

Step 8: I like to dispense the scrub into jars by using a spoon. You can also use a pastry bag or even a Ziploc bag to do this. Begin filling the Low Profile Frosted 2.9 oz jars. These are perfect for a sugar scrub!

Step 9: Smooth the tops and wipe off the rims. Make sure the jars are nice and clean before sealing them. Allow the product to set for 24 hours before use.

Option 1: You can color the sugar scrub very easily – simply add a few drops of a Gel Soap Color of your choice in Step 3.

Option 2: If you planning on selling your product, it’s a good idea to add a bit more preservative to the scrub. Add the preservative to the Foaming Bath Butter Base before whipping (following instructions according to the preservative of your choice).

How Do You Use Foaming Sugar Scrubs?

To use a foaming sugar scrub, take a small amount and apply it to damp skin, massaging it in circular motions. This helps to exfoliate and cleanse the skin effectively. The foaming action will create a rich lather that can be rinsed off with warm water, leaving the skin feeling clean and rejuvenated. You can use the scrub all over your body, paying extra attention to rough areas like elbows, knees, and feet. For best results, use the scrub two to three times a week. Creating your own DIY foaming sugar scrub is simple and allows you to tailor the ingredients to your skin’s needs and preferences?.
