This exfoliating salt scrub is made with creamy Shealoe Butter, yummy scented Fragrance Oils, and super fine Dendritic Salt.  You can make this scrub in one solid color, or layer multiple colors for super cuteness!  This recipe could be varied easily to create all kinds of delicious ice cream parlor inspired creations, like Orange Cream, Banana Split, or Mint Chocolate!  Just switch out the Fragrance and the Color Additive to create your own unique Ice Cream Scrub.



Neopolatin Ice Cream Scrub

Ingredients
6 ounces Shealoe Butter
1 1/2 cups Dendritic Salt
1/2 teaspoon Milk Chocolate Fragrance Oil
1/2 teaspoon Strawberry Fragrance Oil
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Non-Browning Fragrance Oil
1 .15 cc scoop of FDA Red Mica
2 .15 cc scoops of Umber Oxide

Directions
In a large mixing bowl combine the Shealoe Butter and Dendritic Salt.  Shealoe is naturally soft, so you should be able to mix this without heating the Butter.  However, if it is necessary, you can heat the Butter gently by warming the container in hot water.  (Be careful not to let the water get inside the container though.) After the Butter and Salt are fully mixed, split the mixture into three parts in three seperate mixing bowls.  Add one Fragrance Oil to each bowl, thouroughly mixing each into the mixture.  Next, add two .15 cc scoops of Umber Oxide to the Milk Chocolate scented batch of salt, and mix well to combine.  Add 1 .15 cc scoop of FDA Red Mica to the Strawberry scented batch of salt next.  Leave the Vanilla scented batch uncolored.  Once the batches are fully mixed they can be spooned into jars.

Usage and Packaging
This fine grained salt scrub makes a great body polish, but should not be used on the face or other very delicate areas.  The Neoploatin Ice Cream Scrub looks adorable packaged in 2 oz. or 4 oz. PET Jars.  Like most handmade skin care products, this Scrub should be used up quickly, as it has not been formulated for long term storage.

Shealoe Butter contains a small amount of Preservative, so if the scrub is left in the container, unopened, it should last for around 3 months. However, the Fragrance Oils that you use could turn the scrub's color early.  The Vanilla section would be particularly susceptible to browning.  If you can use a non-browning Vanilla FO, that will help keep the colors staying pretty longer.

Once the scrub is opened it shouldn't be handled directly. Use a clean spoon or popsicle stick to get it out of the jar.  Unless you add an additional preservative, you should use the scrub as quickly as you can once it is open and toss it if you think it might have become contaminated by water, handling, etc.

It's a combo of shea butter and aloe...I'm not sure what proportions or how they make it, but it's lovely stuff! Much softer than shea on its own.

Yes, MareMare is right.  I am a writer and formulator for those guys, so all of the ingredients I use come from them.  To be fair, they are not the only source for such ingredients, but they are certainly MY favorite!

Everyone's skin is different, so to be safe, I would recommend doing a small patch test somewhere inconspicuous before using this scrub all over the place.  You may also want to omit the Fragrance Oil if your skin is super sensitive.

Quote
What is dendrtitic salt? and can sugar be substituted for this salt?.   I 'm new to all this:)
Dendiritic Salt is a standard salt with a very fine grain.  You can also try fine grain sea salt, if the grain is very fine and the salt is very bright white.  I wouldn't substitute sugar, however, as the moisture in the Shealoe could dissolve it too quickly, and could result in some undesirable characters growing in your scrub. (Microbes, fungi, bacteria, etc.)

Thanks for the love, everybody! I'm glad you like the recipe!
