New Tool for Liquid Soapmaking: Foamer Pumps

by Andrea on December 12, 2010

Foamer pumps for liquid soapThis summer I bought some bottles and foamer pumps for liquid soap  from SKS Bottles.

I added organic Castile soap, organic aloe vera gel, organic jojoba and some essential oils to the container, and to my complete delight, I had foam soap!

I know these containers are not new, but this is the first time I have used them. SKS says, “The white plastic foamer pumps create foam without the use of gas propellants and allow for precise mixing of liquid and air, producing a dose of high quality foam with each stroke.” Just air? Now that is remarkable!

I am now making soap, shower gel, and shaving cream. The recipes below can be adjusted based on personal preference. All the recipes use the same three ingredients in slightly different proportions. When I first made these products, I measured the ingredients. Now I just estimate!

Only fill your bottle 3/4 of the way, as the foam top needs room to expand.

SKS only sells in bulk. If you want to buy them individually, Aromatics International has them.

2 oz Foam Soap
1 oz Castile soap
.25 oz aloe vera gel
.25 oz jojoba
20 drops of essential oil (I like Peppermint — Mentha piperita)

2 oz Foam Shower Gel
1 oz Castile soap
.25 oz aloe vera gel
.50 oz jojoba or a bit less, so you don’t fill the bottle too high
20 drops of essential oil (I like Rosemary – Rosmarinus officinalis ct. camphor)

2 oz Foam Shaving Cream
1 oz Castile soap
.50 oz aloe vera gel or a bit less, so you don’t fill the bottle too high
.25 oz jojoba
20 drops of essential oil (I like Black Spruce — Picea mariana)
