What you need

1/4 cup of steraic acid powder
1 tsp of borax
2 tbs of grated soap
1 cup of hot water


Melt the stearic acid down into a clear liquid using a double boiler method.

Add all the remainder ingredients together and keep stirring until it is well mixed.

Place the soap ingredients into a blender and mix well for a few minutes, then carefully and slowly add the stearic acid to the mix and blend until it is a thick creamy consistency.

Pour into a large container and its ready for use.

This cream settles slightly when not being used so give it a stir or store it in a jar that can be shaken prior to use.

Use it like normal shaving cream!
