Solid Sugar Scrub
I am wondering if I can use sunflower seed oil instead of palm oil. And clay for the colors instead of mica.
Yes to the clay, no to the sunflower seed oil. The palm oil is actually palm shortening and that is a very important aspect to this recipe. If you substitute any soft oils at all you will not get the solid texture and it will turn into something more like a blob. If you want to make it this way it will certainly be a sugar scrub, but it won't ever stay solid in the way you see in the example. It will be something else. This is one of the few recipes that can't tolerate any substitutions.
@thermalmermaid - Thank you! I now have the palm shortening! Making this baby this week!
