What is a sugar scrub bar?
Before learning how to make sugar scrub bars you might want to know what a sugar scrub bar is.
Sugar scrubs are made from sugar granules which are then used to help exfoliate dead skin cell build up. By exfoliating with a sugar scrub you can help to create smoother, glowing skin – what’s not to love?
A sugar scrub bar is more solid than a normal sugar scrub, meaning you don’t need to keep it in a jar or the original packaging.
They look great as gifts and can be shaped into almost anything, meaning you can theme them for different seasons, gifts and more.

What you need to make these pear scented sugar scrub bars
To make two bars using the same mold you will need:
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1/16 pound (1 cube) clear glycerin melt & pour soap base
- 1/4 cup pure cane sugar
- Molds (I like these flower ones)
- 5 drops pear scented fragrance oil
- 1 drop Chartreuse soap colourant https://amzn.to/2YaBz58
- Glass measuring cup
Melt your soap base in the microwave on high for about 15 seconds.
Mix in the olive oil, sugar, fragrance oil and soap colourant. Stir well. If it is starting to thicken then you can put it back in the microwave for 5-10 seconds.
Pour into your mold and let set for about 1 hour.
Pop bars out of mold and store in an airtight container.
These would look great given as a gift in a presentation box or glass jar.
