Learn How to Make the Best Foaming Hand Soap

Foaming Hand Soap

This foaming hand soap is simple to make, inexpensive, and it works great! Follow these steps to obtain your foaming soap dispenser and make your own!

I’ve made hard bar soap, liquid soap, glycerin soap and hot process soap, but foaming hand soap always eluded me. Either it was very expensive to buy, or I’d either get it too strong and it would be difficult to rinse off, or too weak and not enough foam.

I finally discovered the secret!

Foaming Hand Soap:  Simple Ingredients

Liquid Soap

Of course, you’ll need soap. You can make your own liquid soap or use one of the many on the market. You can also use a chunk of hard bar soap (grated), but you’ll need to experiment with the amounts if using this.

Oil

A good, moisturizing oil is needed to soften the skin, since soap alone is drying. I use argan oil because of its superior ability to condition the skin. You could also use jojoba oil, sweet almond oil, fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed oil, or any other liquid oil. This is also a good place to use an infused oil, such as calendula infused oil like the one from this recipe.

Water

Water makes up a large part of this soap. I use distilled, reverse osmosis, or filtered water to be sure there is no bacteria present.

Essential Oils

Essential oils are optional. You can use them to make an effective antibacterial soap or you can leave them out. I like grapefruit or lavender.

Secret Ingredient

The last ingredient, and the secret to making great foaming hand soap, is one you would probably never think of – air! Without a cushion of air, the pump can’t make foam and the soap will just come out in a thin stream. So be sure you do not fill your soap container to the top with liquid ingredients.

Foaming Hand Soap: The Best Homemade Recipe

Ingredients

Instructions

Pour all of the liquid ingredients into the soap dispenser and mix well. Top with the pump, and screw it on tightly. Shake to combine ingredients. Because there are no artificial emulsifiers in this recipe, the oils will gather on the top. Shake the container before each use. (It's still a really nice soap if you don't remember to shake it!)

Notes

We don't give specific ingredient amounts because it depends on your container size.

Foaming Soap Dispenser

Don’t forget to pick up some foaming soap dispensers! We recommend this one from Amazon.

Foaming hand soap doesn’t need to be expensive or difficult to make. Follow these simple steps and make your own!
