- Foaming bath butter base. You can buy it readymade or make it easily at home.
- Matcha powder
- Coconut oil
- Polysorbate 80, optional
- Mica color powder and oil color powder, both optional
- Essential oil for fragrance, optional. Here, I will use mint with eucalyptus
Note: If you wish to use the DIY Matcha Creamy Soap on your face, then don’t put essential oil.
- Scale to measure quantities
- Glass mixing rod
- Jar or container for storing the creamy soap
Prior to use, ensure that both your utensils and containers are properly cleaned and disinfected. Wash them with warm soapy water, dry with a tissue, and then sanitize by spraying with 70% medical alcohol. Wipe them clean and let them air dry before use.
Steps: DIY Matcha Creamy Soap
1- Start by putting 200 grams (7.05 oz) of the foaming bath butter base in a bowl.
2- Add 20 grams (0.70 oz) of coconut oil.
3- Add 4 grams (0.14 oz) of matcha powder.
4- Using a whisk, mix the ingredients well.
5- At this stage, our DIY Matcha Creamy Soap is ready!
But, have you noticed how dull the color is? There is nothing wrong with the color; it is after all the color of the matcha powder. But to me, it looks boring. So, we are going to liven it and make it more exciting.
Adding color and fragrance – Optional
I will use 2 colors: oil color powder for its vibrant green, and mica color powder to give the creamy soap a shine.
To achieve a proper mix with the creamy soap, we will first add both color powders to an essential oil. Once we dissolve the color powders in the essential oil, we will then add the color solution to the creamy soap.
6- in a separate small cup, put 6 grams (0.21 oz) of an essential oil that you like. Here, I will use an essential oil made of both mint and eucalyptus.
7- Using the tip of a glass mixing rod, add a little of the mica color powder to the essential oil, and mix.
8- Add a little of the oil color powder to the mica powder and essential oil. Mix well to dissolve all the powder.
You can see how rich and vivid the green oil color powder is.
9- Add the color solution to the creamy soap. Mix well.
10- Finally, add 3 grams (0.10 oz) of polysorbate 80. Mix thoroughly.
Including polysorbate 80 in the DIY Matcha Creamy Soap recipe serves two purposes. Firstly, it acts as an emulsifier, ensuring a non-greasy feel on the skin after use. Secondly, it helps prevent any color staining on the skin, especially when using higher amounts of oil color powder.
11- Scoop the creamy soap into a container for storage.
