Almond Soapless Face Wash

Posted on


This is a soap substitute for those that cannot, or do not wish to, use soap. Kaolin draws out dirt and impurities, while almonds cleanse the skin. Borax is well known for its cleansing and water-softening properties. It also acts as a preservative.

You will need:

50ml ground almonds
50ml kaolin
3ml borax
enough almond oil to bind everything together.


Thoroughly mix all the dry ingredients together, then add a small amount of almond oil - just enough to make a thick paste. Spoon the paste into a clean, glass jar.

To use:

Take a small amount of the almond paste and smooth all over the face. Leave it on for five minutes before rinsing off.
