Welcome back! In the blog, I talked about how I made a Brown Sugar body scrub, but I wasn’t exactly happy with the final texture of the scrub. Today I am remaking the recipe with a few changes so that it comes out nice and thick as I envisioned.
The recipe from yesterday had quite a bit of Sunflower Oil, so I decided to cut the Sunflower Oil in half and add some Mango Butter to help thicken the finished scrub. This minor change made a world of difference and I love the resulting thicker scrub!
Join me in the kitchen as we make this revised scrub!

This recipe was made the same way as the recipe yesterday. Simply weigh all of your ingredients into a food processor then pulse until it is all combined. Scoop it into the jar of your choice, label, and enjoy.
Today I am much happier with how this recipe turned out. Adding that Mango Butter gave this scrub the perfect creamy texture that I was wanting. I think tonight I will go home and pamper myself with this body scrub. You should pamper yourself too! 🙂
Hi. What is the “Liquapar” and what does it do? I don’t see this item on your supply list? Can you help? TIA.
The Liquapar is a preservative. It is most commonly used in anhydrous mixtures such as sugar scrubs, salt scrubs and other products. Liquapar can be found in our catalog under the Antioxidants and Preservatives section. I hope that answers your question!
And could Poly 80 be used instead of the 20? TIA
Yes you could switch out the Polysorbate 80 for the Polysorbate 20! Good Luck.
