Pampers Skins of All Types!


Avocado Oil, 3 oz
Castor Oil, 2 oz
Jojoba Oil, 3 oz
Olive Oil, 12 oz
Palm Oil, 6 oz
Palm Kernel Oil, 5 oz
Wheat Germ Oil, 1 oz
Beeswax, 1 oz
Lye, 4.1 oz
Cold Water, 10 oz


Carefully make your lye and water mixture, using standard safety procedures and let cool to about 100-110 degrees F. Gently warm the oils and beeswax, just enough to melt the beeswax and cool to about 100-110 degrees. Slowly and carefully, add the lye/water mixture to the oils and stir well. This recipe traces quickly, so add any fragrance oils and/or essential oils at light trace. Pour into molds (and by the way, it's a great recipe if you want to use fancy molds) and cover lightly for about 24 hours. This recipe as listed is at about a 5% superfatting ratio.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
