This DIY vegan soap recipe is all you need today

Vegan AND eco-friendly, perfect, right?

If you really want to take care of your skin you need to be careful with the products you use, knowing exactly what is on your ingredients list, with no hidden chemicals or allergens inside will give you inner peace. 

 

Plus, by opting to use your own containers, you are actively reducing your dependence upon plastic and helping reuse some of those mason jars and empty tubs of peanut butter.

Soaps are not only a great gift but also can give you the best fragrance after a long relaxing bath, but what can be even better is creating your own with the essence you want, here’s how to make your own eco-friendly soap:
 

Lye/sodium hydroxide
 

This is an essential ingredient in soaps, which is only required in very small quantities in order to form a neutral pH when paired with the acids in the various oils used to create the soap.
 

Oils
 

Pick oils that will suit your skin type, such as cocoa butter for sensitive and dry skin, and coconut oil for oily skin, just a little online research will tell you which one you should use according to your skin type. Combine this oil with an equal amount of soybean oil, which provides a very conditioning soap that will lather easily in your hands.
 

Grapefruit seed extract
 

The grapefruit seed extract acts as a natural antioxidant to help prevent your oil emulsion from going rancid while you use it.
 

Essential oils and fragrances
 

For a moisturizing body soap, opt for lighter fragrances, such as geranium and citrus oils, including lemon and neroli oils.
 

Natural colors
 

You can opt for blitzed rose petals or fresh botanicals such as lavender but you have lots and lots of options to choose from.
 

The best recipes for natural vegan soaps can all be found online with a little research, it is a perfect way to explore the fascinating world of soap-making alchemy.
