Ditch the store-bought body soaps and washes and make your own instead. This Diy Body Wash is so easy to make and with just a few simple ingredients. It foams up on a loofah or body puff and gently cleans the skin. It’s perfect for kids too.

Have you ever looked at the ingredients list on a store-bought body wash? Here’s what I found in a popular Body Wash that you can find in the store:

Water (Aqua), Sodium Laureth Sulfate, Ammonium Chloride, Cocamide MEA, Fragrance (Parfum), Algae Extract, Glycerin, Citric Acid, PPG-9, Tetrasodium EDTA, Propylene Glycol, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate), Methylchloroisothiazolinone, Methylisothiazolinone, Blue 1 (CI 42090), Red 33 (CI 17200).

Really other than water and algae extract, I couldn’t read most of the ingredients. This is the last thing you want to put on your body, or worse give to your kids. That’s why I wanted to create an easy body wash that’s simple to make and contains all-natural ingredients.

What Ingredients Do You Need to Make a DIY Body Wash

  • Castile soap is a gentle cleanser that helps to remove dirt, grime and make-up without stripping the skin.
  • Jojoba oil helps to moisturize skin and provides essential vitamins to make skin look healthy. You can substitute others like rosehip seed oil, jojoba oil, argan oil, sesame oil or even apricot kernel oil. Just be sure to get organic, cold-pressed oils.
  • Vitamin E oil helps to nourish skin and give it an extra boost of vitamins. You could skip the vitamin E oil in this recipe if you use rosehip seed oil because it naturally contains vitamin E, vitamin A, vitamin C and essential fatty acids (which helps the skin look healthy and plump).
  • Essential oils provide a natural scent and also help to nourish the skin.

How to Make This DIY Body Wash – Step By Step

First, get your ingredients together. You can substitute different essential oils to make your own scent and even replace jojoba and vitamin E oils with you other favorite carrier oils (like almond oil, argan oil, and rosehip seed oil).
