This DIY cleansing oil is a game-changer! Not only is it inexpensive and easy to make, but it also rinses off clean, just like those fancy store-bought oil cleansers. And the best part? You can make it yourself at a fraction of the price! Say goodbye to buying makeup removers and hello to this simple emulsifying cleansing oil that washes off with just water.

Why I Fell in Love with DIY Cleansing Oil

Let me tell you a secret. I haven't bought a makeup remover in over 4 years, ever since I discovered this easy DIY cleansing oil recipe. Sure, I've experimented with other DIY recipes, like cleansing balms, micellar water, and makeup remover wipes, but I always come back to this one.

This self-emulsifying DIY cleansing oil has a luxurious oil-to-milk texture that effortlessly dissolves makeup, sunscreen, and even waterproof mascara. And the best part? It rinses off clean, leaving behind no greasy residue.

The Benefits of DIY Cleansing Oil

There are two ways you can make this amazing cleansing oil. The first is a simple 2-ingredient oil cleanser, and the second is a slightly more complex recipe with 3 ingredients. But no matter which one you choose, you'll enjoy these benefits:

  • All-natural: This cleansing oil is made with a polysorbate-free, PEG-free emulsifier, making it safe for your skin.
  • Fragrance-free: It contains no essential oils or fragrances, making it suitable for even the most sensitive skin.
  • PUFA-free: It's made without polyunsaturated oils, so it won't oxidize on your face or in the bottle.
  • Versatile cleanser: Whether you have oily, dry, or combination skin, this cleansing oil is suitable for a wide variety of skin types.

How to Make DIY Cleansing Oil

This recipe took a lot of testing (and money spent on ingredients), but trust me, it was worth it. This easy makeup remover hack has saved me so much time and money over the years, and I hope it does the same for you.

But before we jump into the recipes, let's talk about the ingredients you'll need:

  • Carrier oils: MCT oil (or fractionated coconut oil) or a mixture of MCT oil and castor oil (or any carrier oils of your choice).
  • Natural emulsifier: CreamMaker FLUID or Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate.
  • Thickener + co-emulsifier: Cera Bellina wax (optional).

DIY Cleansing Oil with CreamMaker FLUID

  • 92g MCT oil or fractionated coconut oil
  • 8g CreamMaker FLUID (emulsifier)
  • 1g Cera Bellina wax (optional)

DIY Cleansing Oil with Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate

  • 60g MCT oil or fractionated coconut oil
  • 20g cold-pressed castor oil
  • 20g Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate (emulsifier)
  • 1g Cera Bellina wax (optional)

How to Make Cleansing Oil with CreamMaker FLUID

  1. Weigh MCT oil (or your preferred carrier oil) and Cera Bellina wax into a glass beaker. Pouring MCT oil, fractionated coconut oil and castor oil into glass lab beaker. Weighing Cera Bellina wax pellets into glass beaker on cosmetic scale.

How to Make Cleansing Oil with Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate

  1. Weigh all the ingredients into a glass lab beaker: MCT oil, castor oil, Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate, and Cera Bellina wax (optional). (The Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate may be very thick at room temperature, so you'll need to use a small spatula or another tool to scoop it out of the container depending on your climate.)
  2. Place the beaker into a double boiler on medium heat. Heat until the wax melts and the mixture becomes transparent. Once it liquifies, remove it from heat.
  3. Stir one last time to ensure an even consistency, then pour the oil into your pump bottle and allow it to cool and thicken. Your homemade cleansing oil is now ready to use.

How to Make 2-Ingredient Cleansing Oil with Emulsifier

  1. Simply pour MCT oil and CreamMaker FLUID emulsifier directly into your glass pump bottle.
  2. Replace the bottle's pump top and shake until the mixture becomes milky. That's it! Your emulsifying makeup remover is ready to use. (Note: If you're using Polyglyceryl-10 Laurate instead, follow the instructions above to heat the formula before pouring it into your pump bottle.) 2-ingredient cleansing oil with emulsifier.

How to Use Your Homemade Cleansing Oil

Using your homemade cleansing oil is super simple:

  1. Start with dry skin. Dispense a couple of pumps of cleansing oil into clean hands and massage it into your skin using gentle, circular motions. Avoid getting it into your eyes.
  2. If you're wearing makeup or sunscreen, you'll see it immediately begin to emulsify. Massage your face for a little longer, especially focusing on oily areas like the T-zone, to clear any pore congestion.
  3. Wet your hands and massage your face again. The oil cleanser will change consistency and turn milky as it emulsifies with the water.
  4. To finish, rinse your face with warm water until your makeup rinses away, leaving your skin clean and soft. Unlike the oil cleansing method, there's no need to remove it with a washcloth because this formula rinses right off.

Tips for Best Results:

  • Shake the bottle well before use.
  • This cleansing oil is best used on a full face of makeup during your nighttime skincare routine.
  • To avoid raccoon eyes, use a wet cotton pad to gently wipe away excess eye makeup before rinsing.
  • You may or may not need a second facial cleanser, depending on your skincare and makeup products and how they interact with your chosen emulsifier.
  • Your skin won't feel greasy or oily after using the cleansing oil, but it may leave a light, moisturizing residue that you can choose to remove with a gentle face wash.

And that's it! You're ready to enjoy the benefits of your homemade cleansing oil.
