EQUIPMENT PREP: Disinfect your utensils by dipping them in a 5% bleach water solution and allowing to dry. This includes mixing containers, your stick blender, and any spoons or spatulas that may come in contact with your mask. Your products must be as free of germs, bacteria, and microbes as possible. To be safe, bleach water all your utensils.
CLAY PREP: In a small container, add 6 oz. of kaolin clay and 0.2 oz. of moringa leaf powder. Mix together.
  1. In a heat-safe container, combine 1.3 oz. of avocado oil, 1 oz. of moringa seed oil, 0.8 oz. of BTMS-50, and 1 oz. of Polawax. Heat the container in the microwave using 30-60 second bursts until the waxes fully melt. Be careful when removing the container as it will be hot. Set aside.
  2. In a separate large container, heat 21.4 oz. of distilled water in the microwave until it reaches about 160-170 ° F. Some water may evaporate during this process. If necessary, remeasure and add more distilled water until you have 21.4 oz. of hot water.
  3. Check the temperatures of both containers. Each container should be about 160° F. If the oil and wax has cooled, place back into the microwave until fully melted. Place the stick blender into the water, and burp it to help get rid of bubbles. Pour the oil and wax mixture into the water and use a spatula to make sure every little bit is added. Begin pulsing the stick blender. The mixture will take on a “milky” appearance once the water, oil, and waxes have started to emulsify. Continue to pulse and stir for about a minute.
  4. Begin adding heaping spoonfuls of the kaolin clay and moringa leaf powder and pulsing the stick blender until combined. Continue to add the clay to the mixture and blend in small amounts until all the clay is added.
  5. Continue stick blending for about one to two minutes. Use a spatula to scrape down any clay that may be on the sides of the bowl. Check the temperature of the mixture. Once the mixture is about 130-140°F, add 0.2 oz. of Optiphen, 2 mL of Spa Essential Oil Blend, and 0.5 oz. of green tea extract. Stick blend (don’t forget to burp the stick blender) the ingredients until fully mixed.
  6. Pour the mixture into the bail jars. If there are bubbles on the top, you can spritz with alcohol to help get rid of some of them. Allow the containers to cool for several hours with the lid open to prevent condensation. Once fully cooled, the mixture will be a thick, lotion-like texture. To use, apply a medium layer to dry, clean skin. Avoid the immediate eye area. Allow the mask to sit on the skin for about 10-15 minutes. Use warm water to rinse off. There is no need to wash the skin after, but you can if you prefer.
