How To Make: Hand Series: Sugar Scrub (Grapefruit & Jojoba)

Monday, 21 January 2019

Today’s recipe is for the Grapefruit & Jojoba Sugar Scrub. In this recipe we added sugar to a lotion base to make the scrub. Sugar is a great exfoliator. Exfoliating is extremely important to make the skin softer and smoother. It also helps remove dead skin thats around our nail beds.  For this recipe you can either use course or fine sugar depending on how ‘rough’ scrubbing do you want.

The lotion base that we are using in this recipe is Jojoba Lotion Base by SoapLab. Its made of jojoba oil and it moisturises and hydrates the skin. We also added red ruby grapefruit fragrance oil for a pleasant and fruity aroma. And finally, we added synstar red mica for a dash of color.

Can We Use Rose Hip Oil In The Day (morning)?

Friday, 18 January 2019

After my last post on Rose Hip Oil here; we got many people asking us if rose hip oil can be used in the morning.

One of the reason there might be doubt on that is because of it’s vitamin A content and the similarity to tretinoin (retinol A)

Though; it may contain similar effect as tretinoin; Rose Hip Oil is not as ‘strong’ as tretinoin therefore it shouldn’t be a problem in using Rose Hip Oil in the morning.

How To Recycle SoapLab's Oil Bottles

Hi all.
Many times clients of SoapLab asked us if we were able to take back the containers (plastic) and recycle them.

I know that we were suppose to be all natural and we shouldn't have to 'throw' these plastics away.

Unfortunately we cant take them back and recycle as we are dealing with cosmetic ingredients and we need the bottles to be sanitised before we could reuse them. If we reused them as is without proper cleaning; it will effect the shelf life of the new ingredients added in. Even if it was just oil; it can speed up the rancidity of the new oil and therefore for those reasons; we cant take them back to recycle them.
