Stocking up on them will ensure you have everything it takes to cover all of your diy needs.

When shopping for diy beauty ingredients, keep in mind that your skin is your largest organ.

What you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. 

Choosing the highest quality ingredients will always yield the best results!

Happy Body Organic Sulfur

You can’t make MSM infused products without MSM!!

MSM, also known as Organic Sulfur, is a genius addition to all of your DIY health and beauty products. 

It has such a long list of benefits, but just to give you a brief over view, Organic Sulfur is excellent for beauty to: 

  • Improve Skin Health

Sulfur is a keratolytic; when applied topically to the skin, sulfur causes the top layer of the epidermis to dry and peel off.

This can help slough away dead skin cells to keep pores unblocked, allowing a fresh new layer of smooth skin to grow in its place. Sulfur also has antibacterial properties, helping to combat the presence of P. acnes bacterium that can cause infections within the dermis.

  • Increase Collagen Production

MSM plays a major part in the body’s ability to produce collagen. As an essential ingredient in tissue to hold the human body together, collagen provides structural support and impacts the flexibility and resilience of skin.

  • Maintain Keratin

MSM is vital for the maintenance of normal keratin levels in the hair, skin, and nails.

The amount of cysteine disulfide keratin determines the strength of the bonds to make hard cells like nails, or softer to make flexible tissue like hair and skin.

  • Reduce Redness and Inflammation

MSM also helps reduce inflammation, which can damage skin cells and cause signs of premature aging like wrinkles.

It may even reduce symptoms of problematic skin conditions such as rosacea, which can cause redness, irritation and inflammation of the skin.

One study showed that, when applied to the skin, MSM significantly improved redness, itching, inflammation, hydration and skin color in people with rosacea.

Obviously our Top Pick for MSM is Happy Body Premium Organic Sulfur Crystals!! 

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is linked to many benefits for skin, including reducing inflammation, keeping skin moisturized and helping heal wounds.

The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil also possess antimicrobial properties that can help treat acne and protect the skin from harmful bacteria.

What is the difference between regular and fractionated Coconut Oil?

We use both regular and fractionated coconut oil in some of these recipes.

Fractionated coconut oil is virgin coconut oil that has been distilled, allowing the long-chain fatty acids that solidify at room temperature to separate and they are then removed. What remains is an ultralight, odorless coconut oil that stays liquid in form at cooler temps.


  • Virgin coconut oil is solid at lower room temperatures, making it too heavy to use as a facial oil.
  • Virgin coconut oil is less processed so it maintains lauric acid and other long-chain fatty acids.
  • Fractionated coconut oil stays liquid in form, even in lower temperatures.
  • Fractionated coconut oil is less likely to clog pores or cause breakouts.
  • Fractionated coconut oil is more easily absorbed by the skin.


  • Both are deeply moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.
  • Both are naturally processed (extracted without the use of chemicals) so they still contain plenty of nutrients and antioxidants.

Shea Butter

High concentrations of fatty acids and vitamins make shea butter an ideal cosmetic ingredient for softening skin. Shea butter also has anti-inflammatory and healing properties.

Using shea butter on your body, especially your face, can condition, tone, and soothe your skin.

The best shea butter is unrefined.

  • Yellow shea butter is raw and can have a strong odor. There may be impurities present if the butter has not been filtered. 
  • Unrefined shea butter is usually whiter in appearance and has been run through a filter to remove impurities.
  • Heavily refined, pure white shea butter still contains is moisturizing abilities, but its vitamin content has been lost.

Aloe Vera Gel

Aloe vera is a cactus-like plant known for its healing and medicinal properties.

Its stems store water, creating a clear, gel-like substance in the leaves, which contains vitamins, antioxidants, minerals, and amino acids.

The gel from aloe has been used throughout history to treat a variety of skin conditions, such as burns, frostbite, psoriasis and cold sores.

Aloe Butter

Aloe butter is an extract of aloe vera (aloe barbadensis) in a coconut fatty fraction.

It is semi solid at room temperature, melting when applied to the skin. Aloe Butter aids in rapid hydration of dry skin caused by eczema, psoriasis, rosacea, sun burn, wind burn, and general chapping.

Aloe butter contains all the key properties of Aloe Vera, skin soothing and restorative with natural anti-inflammatory properties and naturally containing lignin which aids its ability to draw in other ingredients to the skin.

This makes Aloe Butter the perfect butter to blend with essential oils intended for the skin.

Since castile soap is made from safe, simple plant oils, it is considered safe for even the most sensitive skin types.

It can help oily, acne-prone skin. The oils found in castile soap penetrate pores with their antibacterial agents, helping clean your skin without drying it out.

Dr. Bronner’s, one of the most popular brands of Castile soap, is primarily made of coconut, olive, and hemp oils, but other oils like avocado, almond, and walnut can also be used.

Apple Cider Vinegar

ACV has antibacterial and antifungal properties and can help kill bacteria and yeast on the skin related to conditions like acne, eczema, and dandruff.

ACV’s high acidity level may also help some skin conditions (but note well: Its high acidity makes it necessary to dilute with water).

Healthy skin lies on the acidic end of the pH spectrum. However, people with eczema can have an elevated skin pH, which can compromise the skin barrier and make it more prone to infections.

Since ACV is acidic, it may help restore some of the skin’s natural pH.
