- 1/4 C stearic acid
- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 C hot water
- 1 tsp borax
- 2 Tbsp grated soap (recipe calls for castille, I was going to substitute mine)
Melt stearic acid and oil in double boiler until a clear liquid forms. Mix hot water, Borax, and soap and stir until until the Borax and soap are dissolved. Pour the soap solution into a blender and blend well for about 1 minute. Slowly pour the melted stearic acid mixture into the soap solution. Blend on high until a smooth cream forms.
Pour into a clean container and allow to cool completely. To use, soften your beard (or legs) with warm water and then apply the shaving cream. Use a sharp, clean razor.
Natural Skin Care Based on Science
Your skin is the largest organ in your body. What you put on it can have a profound impact on your overall health over the long term. That's why every ingredient in your skincare product needs to be carefully chosen … to feed your skin with essential nutrients.
Did you know that many skincare products contain only tiny amounts of certain active ingredients, just so they can add them to the label? Or that many popular and expensive skincare products can actually damage your skin?
