Carrot Soap Is A Skin Healing Soap That Works Wonders On Aging Or Sun Damaged Skin

Add this Garden Vegetable to Your Soap for Younger Looking Skin!

Carrot Soap is a skin healing soap that works wonders on aging or sun-damaged skinThe original post that was published here for Handmade Carrot Soap was submitted as a guest post from an author and the publisher of a handmade soap book. I’m disappointed to say that the reviews of the book have been poor both online and for this recipe in particular. I have decided to remove the original post and recreate a recipe that can be successfully made by beginners and experienced soap-makers alike.

In the meantime, please visit this post on How to Make Cold-Process Soap or visit the Natural Skincare Series of posts.

    As a skincare fanatic as well as a lover of pure and natural ingredients, I am definitely going to have to try this recipe out! I’ve dabbled in a little in homemade cosmetics, but have never tried my hand at soap before. Love love love it!

    Hi, I am wondering what those spots are that you can see on the soap. I also make a carrot soap and actually cook my carrots and then puree them. When using any kind of food item ie banana, carrot, tomato, in your soap, the food should be completely pureed and have no pieces left in the soap as you will eventually have mold growing.

    Hi Dorothy, I’m not sure what the spots are but I have forwarded your question along to the author. I like your idea of cooking the carrots, but does this reduce the beneficial properties?

    Thanks!

    I’ve been making soap about 5 years. If you put plant material into a lye soap, it will turn black, so those spots on the soap are very likely the pieces of carrot. They’ve oxidized. The way you can prevent this (and keep your carrot or lavender or rosemary bits) their natural color, is to soak them in vit. E oil before you put them into the liquid soap. When protected by the oil, they will retain a better color.

    I also do a organic carrot soap! I juice the organic carrot and use it as the liquid I mix with the lye :) Never had any problem with sports, darkening or molding and I also use carrot seed essential oil.

    Could you use coconut oil instead?

      Hi cloyola, you can try it, although the rule with soap recipes is to stick to them exactly or they risk not turning out.

        Coconut oil and olive oil have different SAP values therefore you cannot just “try” using one instead of the other without recalculating amount of lye. If you don’t, you can end up with very soft soap or – and that is dangerous – with heavy lye soap. You are not a soap maker, Stephanie, are you?

    The recipe says 1.5 lbs of olive oil. Since olive oil is a liquid, it is generally measured by volume, i.e. fluid ounces, liters, cups, quarts, etc., as opposed to being measured by weight such as pounds or solid ounces. Could you please provide the amount of olive oil by volume. Is it 24 fluid ounces (3 cups) since 1.5 lbs of something equals 24 solid ounces?

      Carole, you place a container on a kitchen scale and zero it out. Then pour in the olive oil and measure by weight.

      Carole K., when making soap all ingredients are measured by weight not by volume.
