You can instantly change your skin's appearance and its overall appearance over time, by using a customized face mask that is designed from the variety of Soaper's Supplies ingredients. If you are designing masks for yourself you can take our dry ingredients and wet them with our aloe juice or floral hydrosols, but you will then need to add a preservative and use within a reasonable amount of time, (for instance -two weeks..).
So Should you include a skin mask in your beauty line? Yes! According to Discover Good Nutrition, " Face masks are the perfect skin care treatment to help you with your skin care concerns. The right face mask can help hydrate skin, remove excess oils and help improve the appearance of your pores. They’re also an excellent way to help pull out impurities. Another advantage of wearing a face mask: the feeling of being pampered like you’re at a spa from the comfort of your own home!
If you are making masks for your customers it is suggested that you stick to dry ingredients and include "wetting" instructions for your customer. They can use water, yogurt, honey, floral waters, aloe juice or any combination. They should take what they need from the dry ingredients for a one-time, single use mask. This allows the ingredients to have a much longer shelf-life and there will be no worries over which preservative to choose!
What are the ingredients necessary for a great face mask? Decide who your customer is and what skin type they have. If you have customers with oily or problematic skin then you may not be able to state "helps acne", but, you can include ingredients renowned for cleaning and detoxifying pores.
Some of the best ingredients for a face mask intended for oily skin are; Soaper's Supplies Bentonite Clay, Soaper's
Supplies Glacial Clay, Multani Mitti (Fuller's Earth) clay, Sea Clay and French Green Clay.
There are also clay choices better for toning skin and giving a firmer appearance, like Soaper's Supplies Rhassoul clay, Soaper's Supplies Glacial Clay and Soaper's Supplies Tan/Yellow Illite... When using these clay types it is good to compliment them with other toning or moisturizing powders. You can make a toning face mask that also absorbs oil if you combine two different types of clay and add gentler ingredients to ensure the mask is not irritating.
The inclusion of oats, honey and other botanical powders will almost always make a mask that actually moisturizes dry skin types. It is amazing what the right combination of botanical powders and clay can do for each individual skin-type.
Masks are generally worn for fifteen minutes or so.. Some people wear them till dry and rinse away. Some are comfortable enough to sleep with on problematic areas. It is highly recommended that user checks for irritation or discomfort upon application and discontinues use if irritation develops. Masks are removed with warm water, usually using a soft wash-cloth.
We have a great formula for a face mask for all customers including those with oily, dry, or mature
skin types. Skin Masks are very easy and adjustable so take these simple steps, and then make them your own.
The ingredients in the masks below can be accessed easily in the Soaper's Supplies Store by simply clicking upon each one.
Face Mask for Customers with an oily skin type
1/4 Cup Soaper's Supplies Oat Powder
2 Tbs Soaper's Supplies Honey Powder
1 Tbs Soaper's Supplies Yogurt Powder
1/2tsp Soaper's Supplies Activated Charcoal (Wear protective mask to avoid inhaling dust).
Mix ingredients and portion into containers. Label according to your local laws and FDA Guidelines. Customers should moisten one-two Tablespoons of product with desired wetting agent of choice, by adding chosen liquid one teaspoon at a time.
Instruct customer to take one-two Tablespoons of product out of container and place in a non-metal bowl. Customer may moisten with wetting agent of choice. The honey and yogurt will "activate" once wet, as will the clay powders.
Note: Do not store or prepare clay in metal containers or with metal utensils as this causes a reaction with the clay's minerals which lessen its benefits. Instruct customers and label accordingly.
Toning Skin Mask for Customers with Normal Skin or Aging Skin
1/4 Cup Soaper's Supplies Oat Powder
2 Tbs Soaper's Supplies Honey Powder
Follow mixing instructions listed above for "Oily Skin-Type Mask".
Moisturizing Mask for Normal-Dry, Sensitive, or Mature Skin
1/2 Cup Soaper's Supplies Oat Powder
3 + Tbs Soaper's Supplies Honey Powder
1 Tbs Soaper's Supplies Yogurt Powder
Follow mixing instructions listed above for previous masks. Wetting this mask with Soaper Supplies Hydrosol (such as Rosewater), or Soaper's Supplies Aloe Juice would increase its moisturizing effects. It is not recommended to sell or give the mask away already wet as it is difficult to preserve botanical ingredients. Instructions on "best" wetting agents can be listed on product.
Essential Oils can be added (a few drops to an entire batch, and then well-mixed) to any face mask formula but it is recommended that you master making these dry formulations prior to attempting the inclusion of Essential Oils as they are very potent.
Some EO's that are good in oily skin-type masks are Tea Tree Oil and Lavender. Other EO's renowned in skin-care, particularly anti-aging products are: Carrot Seed EO, Litsea Cubeba EO, Rose-Geranium EO, and Melissa
EO. Please read our Essential Oil safety disclaimer below before adding these to any face product. Remember, just a few drops of essential oil are the maximum amount suggested for
any face mask, so mixing them uniformly into the clay and powders will be challenging but necessary.
Masks are very easy to make and can be a fun addition to your
line. Their ingredients are very adjustable, for example, if you find a mask too drying you can reduce the amount of its absorbing clay. If you find it too wet you can add less
liquid. If the mask seems too harsh or stings, it can "usually" be remedied by increasing the honey powder or by using aloe juice as the wetting agent. If irritation persists or is
bothersome, the mask should be removed at once.
Remember to instruct your customers to only take the amount needed for that one use from the container as once the powders are wet they are not going to keep. Any moistened mask that is leftover should be thrown away.

Serums are Where it's At! Soaper's Supplies has perfected an easy and noticeably effective Face Serum. I am very happy to announce that I am collaborating with my dear friend and mentor, Debbie Poore on this blog installment. We are very excited to and proud to give you a formula for a face/eye serum that is sure to spice-up your line!
This little bit of Luxury in a bottle is Scientifically formulated with some of the finest, choice ingredients for the age-conscious customer who is looking for a spa-like experience. By combining botanical derivatives with modern discoveries, you will receive the upscale experience and visible results you want! Now you can get the high-end ingredients needed to make this upscale serum for yourself, and also for your customers!
Esthetician Veronica Barton-Schwartz, owner of Veronica Skin and Body Care Center in Malibu, Calif., who counts celebrities Olivia
Newton-John, Suzanne Somers, and Cher among her clients, is also a fan. "I think everyone is doing their skin a disservice if they don't have a great serum."
Soaper's Supplies has put together some simple ingredients that are renowned for their anti-aging benefits in water-based facial and eye serums.
Right now I would like to talk about these key ingredients, what they do, and why they are popular in anti-aging facial serums. The most effective serums are usually water-based as this helps the "active ingredients" absorb easily, and therefore, gives quicker, more noticeable results. You can make your own serum that does not contain these ingredients, but we have put together a version that is a great starter formula, especially if you have not included an anti-aging serum in your beauty line yet.
We will have the entire formula with ingredients and instructions listed below, but first we wanted to give you some background on the ingredients chosen for this serum and how they work.
The first ingredient I would like to discuss is Soaper's Supplies CoQ-10 (Coenzyme q-10), also known as Ubiquinone. This is a fabulous ingredient found on many commercial labels and is sure to give your label more than a second look. It is renowned for its skin-rejuvenating properties.
LiveStrong.com states that, according to the Mayo Clinic, "Coenzyme Q10 helps manage energy production in
cells and may have anti-aging effects on skin... It also may help diminish fine wrinkles around the eyes". This informative article also states that according to the
Mayo Clinic, "An animal study published in 2005 in the journal Biofactors found Q10 intake improves the epidermal (inner) layer of the skin, which may be a precursor to its anti-aging effects
on in skin. The study, involving hairless mice, was led by Yutaka Ashida of Pharmaceutical Research Laboratories, Shiseido Research Center, Yokohama, Japan".
Another fabulous ingredient in this serum is Soaper's Supplies Hyaluronic Acid! If you want to sell a water-based serum that will actually keep its promise, then you need to include HA in your formula. Hyaluronic Acid is an amazing humectant. According to LiveStrong.com, "hyaluronic acid holds moisture well--holding up to 1,000 times its weight in water--it is a commonly used component in moisturizers. In these moisturizers, it functions not only to deliver water to the skin, but also to hold it there".
The inclusion of Hyaluronic Acid to your serum may help it reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the users skin with water. It pulls water from the air and into the skin where the collagen has broken down beneath.
A more in depth article well worth checking out is.... https://www.alwayshealthyliving.com/benefits-of-hyaluronic-acid-for-skin Thanks to owner of Always Healthy Living Sandra Dean for sharing her knowledge
In addition to these great actives, this serum contains the luxurious oil of the Rose Hip Seed. Soaper's Supplies Rose Hip Seed oil will help boost the emollient
quality of this face/eye serum. LiveStrong.com states that "for facial skin care, rose hip oil offers
several benefits when applied externally due to its primary constituents: essential fatty acids, vitamin E, vitamin C and B-carotene, a form of vitamin
Rose Hip Seed Oil is found in the most upscale face and eye products due to its nourishing qualities and extensive vitamin and fatty acid content. This was an ingredient we knew would boost the serum's efficiency and also its label-appeal.
When you read the entire ingredient list you will see some other delightful goodies, like Allantoin, which is renowned for its skin-softening effects as well as cyclomethicone and silk amino acids, which will give your serum "slip" and glide in its application. These are all key factors that the high-end companies consider when designing their anti-aging products. Now you can offer the same quality product as the department stores while increasing your profits and market share because your product will keep its promise!
All these great ingredients will be combined with Soaper's Supplies Aloe Gel. This gel offers the soothing, herbal goodness of the aloe plant with a gelling ingredient that actually helps bind all these other anti-aging ingredients together! We have an easy-to-follow formula here on the Soaper's Supplies website. All necessary serum ingredients have been linked directly to the website for your convenience, so, just click and create and sell!
Don't forget the containers! Do you think we would give you the formula for this delightful serum without the proper
Soaper's Supplies containers? We recommend filling -or even injecting, this pro-style serum into our squeezable tubes
which will help reduce customer contamination and also give a fun, stylish appearance to your packaging. If you have any problem finding the proper container, please contact Rae Jean or
myself, Angela D'Amico, and we will be glad to lead you in the right direction.
The full formula including preservative is listed in the following recipe. Each ingredient listed above is linked directly to the store for easy access.

Recipe For Serum
Percentages Grams Ounces
46% Aloe Vera Gel 52.5 1.86
2% Rosehip Seed Oil 2.26 .08
1% CoQ-10 1.13 .04
1% Cyclomethicone 1.13 .04

0.5% Allantoin 0.57 0.02
0.5% Hyaluronic Acid 0.57 0.02
1% Silk Amino Acid 1.13 0.04
1% Germaben II 1.13 0.04
This recipe will yield, 4 ounces or 113 grams of serum
Sanitize all utensils and equipment. You can do this by spraying all clean utensils and equipment with isopropyl alcohol. It is impossible to sterilize in a home or lab setting, but sanitizing is necessary.
Weigh all ingredients in Phase B. Heat the water to 158 Fahrenheit and add the allantoin. Stir until the allantoin is completely dissolved.
Once the water is cool enough to touch, sprinkle the Hyaluronic Acid into the water while stirring. It will start to congeal. Continue stirring until it is dissolved. I use a milk frother to do this. The Hyaluronic Acid will thicken the water. After it is dissolved, add the silk amino acids and stir well.
Add the Germaben II (Phase C) to your water mixture and blend well. Set aside.
Weigh the ingredients in Phase A.
Add the rosehip seed oil to the aloe vera gel. Mix thoroughly. To this add the CoQ-10, mix well. Add the Cyclomethicone to the gel mixture mixing well. It will appear that the cyclomethicone doesn't want to incorporate, keep mixing, it will come together.
Blend both mixtures together VERY well.
Package and label according to the laws in your area.

Hello Friends of RJ's Soaper's Supplies Skincare Blog! We have quite a treat for you today! Many of you have received
the surprise kit containing some wonderful Soaper's Supplies products, especially those very professional-looking under-eye pads for use with your serums, eye gels, and moisture
masks. Green tea, caffeine, and ingredients that pull moisture from the air are very good in under-eye formulas. Formulas containing these ingredients are perfect in which to soak
your new Soaper's Supplies Under-eye pads!
Caroline Thompson of LiveStrong.com suggests using "Green tea (to) reduce swelling and tighten the skin around the eyes. The caffeine reduces puffiness by shrinking the blood vessels. Green tea works on dark circles by decreasing the dilation of the blood vessels under the eyes. The astringent nature of the tannins constricts the blood vessels and capillaries under the eyes". Click this link and read more on the benefits of green tea, caffeine, sleep, water- intake and proper diet to keep your eyes bright and youthful in this interesting article. http://www.livestrong.com/article/93147-green-tea-bags-dark-circles/
Some of you already have these great pads soaking in a fantastic formula that is sure to get your customer's attention and increase your page
interest. These are a very high-end looking tool when combined with the right ingredients. For those of you who are not quite sure how to use them or with which ingredients, I would
like to share an "Under-Eye" Formula you can create yourself with just a few Soaper's Supplies ingredients, a sanitized heating receptacle, a pair of gloves, and some coffee
filters or cheesecloth. You will also need a package of the Soaper's Supplies under-eye pads, and a choice of container. Rae Jean recommends using her six oz clear containers
she sold with her surprise kit. This formula is sure to rid the tired appearance of eyes, and give a more refreshed, youthful look with a noticeable lessening of dark circles and
You will fold each pad in half wearing gloves and fill the container half way with the folded pads. After we cover these pads with solution, we will fold the rest of the pads in half, continue to fill each container with Eye Brightening Solution, and then place the lid on the container.
For the Eye Brightening, tightening and smoothing formula, you will need a few ingredients easily found here at Soaper's Supplies.
Soaper's Supplies Bright Eyes Treatment Pads to help reduce the appearance of dark circles, puffiness and fine wrinkles can be made easily with this simple formula:
(Most of these items can be clicked upon to bring you directly to the ingredient in our Soaper's Supplies ingredient directory. If you need assistance,
please comment, email, or message Rae Jean, and she or her staff will gladly help you find your item.)
Favorite Soaper's Supply Hydrosol (we recommend Rose water) up to 10% of total batch.
Soaper's Supplies Aloe Juice up to 10% of total batch.
Soaper's Supplies Sodium Lactate 2%
Soaper's Supplies Propylene Glycol (Dipropylene or any "glycol" can be used here) at 2%
Soaper's Supplies Green Tea Powder up to 5% or according to usage suggestions.
Soaper's Supplies Cucumber Extract powder at usage suggestions.
Soaper's Supplies Caffeine 1% maximum of total batch.
Broad Spectrum Preservative. Soaper's Supplies recommends Germaben as it is known to be the least irritating on face or near eye area. Follow usage instructions exactly.
Sanitize working environment and tools with alcohol and wear gloves. Get containers open and ready with pads counted out and folded in half. Fill half of jar with folded pads. Six ounce jar is recommended for this formula but you can adjust the percentages using simple multiplication to change your batch size.
Since Green Tea Powder and Cucumber extract are being heated and discarded, I suggest making your "tea" with more than 1% of each. I think the concentration should depend on your total batch size but not exceed 5% of your liquids on first trial. If you feel comfortable with the results then you may be able to increase the amount of tea to the water but I would not go past FDA usage guidelines.
Heat distilled water, green tea powder and cucumber extract -heating and holding for twenty minutes. Allow your tea mixture
maximum brewing for most concentrated results. Strain into sanitized container. Discard wet tea/cucumber powder. Weigh and note your liquid "tea" prior to adding rosewater and
aloe at proper percentages. Add Rose water and Aloe juice to your brewed liquid. Aloe juice and Rosewater should only total ten percent EACH of total liquid ingredients (twenty
percent combined), as they do not preserve well. Heat this mixture slowly till it reaches 70 degrees Celsius holding for twenty minutes. Weigh and note batch of combined liquids
again. Into this new weight you will be adding your caffeine, humectants and preservative.
Important! While mixture is still hot (you may want to put back on low heat), add Caffeine at 1% maximum, stirring till dissolved into your green tea/ cucumber/ rosewater/ aloe solution.
Weigh your total amount of liquid and next, add your humectants:
Add and mix 2% Sodium lactate, 2% Oat Protein, and 2% Propylene Glycol (or any glycol you
have on hand.)
Allow liquid to COOL before adding broad spectrum preservative at manufacturer's suggested usage rate (usually .5% -1%).
Once cooled and preserved add mixed formula to half of your folded pads inside your jars. Then
add second half of folded eye pads (wearing gloves) to the jar. Next, continue to fill jars with solution, covering the top of all the pads. Saturate
Try chilling pads prior to use for maximum results.
Leave on under-eye area for a minimum of fifteen to twenty minutes or till dry, depending on
preference. Some people sleep with Eye Brightening Pads under eyes.
(Like with any cosmetic, if product causes discomfort or irritation, discontinue and rinse with water. If irritation persists seek medical advice from a medical professional.)
Once again, I would like to thank you all for reading RJ's Skincare Blog and hope you enjoy this formula that is sure to give you
the refreshed appearance under your eyes that you are craving. I have personally been using caffeine under my own eyes and am hooked on its effects.
Please try this formula for yourself and if you have any comments, questions or would like to discuss any topic related to RJ's Skincare Blog, we welcome your input.
Thank you again for shopping at Soaper's Supplies and for reading our blog. We are grateful for your support and hope you have fun with our beauty recipes. We believe if a product works it will sell.. So we put a lot of time, research and love into our formulas and look forward to your feedback. Thank you all for reading and for your continued support!
Summer sand and open shoes have been punishing our feet for months. We started the season with soft, silky feet. We proudly paraded our pedicured toes, all painted with the trendiest colors of the season! Now, as the summer's end draws closer, we look at those same feet and wonder "WHAT HAPPENED"? Could these rough and callused hooves be the same tantalizing "tootsies" from which we so delicately dangled our sexy, summer, "one of a kind"-sandals? How could these hang-nail covered, rough and raggedy feet be the same ones we just spent the summer dipping in pools and frolicking in the sand?
Patricia Nicholson from Women's Health Matters, cites that "Your feet don’t just take you
from place to place. In addition to making you mobile, your feet help you balance, support your body, and act as your body’s shock absorbers, enduring enormous amounts of pressure every day. With
that much going on below your knees, it’s no surprise that feet may need some care and attention". Read more about our feet and their special needs in this interesting and
informative article. http://www.womenshealthmatters.ca/feature-articles/feature-articles/feet-first-proper-foot-care-will-keep-you-on-your-toes.
Let's face it... Our feet need HELP! And if our feet are suffering, then I bet our customer's feet could use some help too! So let's get formulating! And the best part, is that this is a reasonably priced, easy to make "Sole-Lution" to the Summer Feet Blues!
So what should you use? Luckily Soaper's Supplies has it all figured out for you! Soaper's Supplies "Foot Fetish" kit has everything you need. A good foot soak to soften the rough, dead skin and calluses to start. Rae Jean's Salt blend will soothe, soften and prep the feet for step two which will be a relaxing exfoliating scrub to rid the rough spots we just softened in the luxury salt soak. The final step is Soaper's Supplies foot cream which will bring those newly polished feet back to life again. It will soothe, soften and really condition the thick skin of the feet.
Your customers will love this, -and you will love how easy it is to make. Plus the ingredients will attract a lot of label appeal. There are exotic, nourishing butters and upscale, humectants, not to mention Rae Jean's top of the line exfoliating ingredients! This is a unisex item with a fresh fragrance that both men and women will find invigorating and delightful! You could probably make an adorable gift-box style package with each of the three products sitting on some raffia or wrapped in pretty tissue. It is also a great way to add some flare to your inventory as summer ends, -but before the Holiday stress begins.
If anyone has any unique packaging ideas for the "Foot Fetish Kit", please, share here in comments and tell us how you have given
this kit your own style!
