Warm weather is here! Is your best, glowing skin? If not, get thyself sugar scrub, STAT! You can search on Pinterest and find a billion super easy sugar scrub recipes that you can make at home. But if you don't feel like DIY-ing it, we've got you!
Our Emulsified Sugar Scrub is a favorite of many, many people. We've been told multiple times "Don't you dare change a thing!" Duly noted. We make this scrub in house and it is the culmination of several tweaks and many failed attempts. But we found it, folks. The perfect balance of creamy and scrubby.
This scrub starts with a creamy, lush base with moisturizing cocoa butter and shea butter as the star ingredients. There is a touch of apricot and almond oils and some beeswax to give it a texture that we loved. We reached for cocoa butter and shea butter because of what they can do for the skin.
Shea butter is loaded with fatty acids and vitamins, making it a great anti-inflammatory for irritated skin. Those fatty acids also stimulate cell growth, helping to keep your skin fresh and glowing. The bit of vitamin K in shea butter adds a bit of UV protection as well, but not enough to excuse the use of sun screen!
Cocoa butter is known to help with elasticity of the skin and to moisturize. Did your mom tell you to use cocoa butter on your belly during pregnancy? You know she did, and she was on to something! The fats in it help retain the moisture level of your skin and make for a great feel as you spread the scrub.
Our Emulsified Sugar Scrub gets it gritty texture from pure white sugar. It's gentle, but absolutely gets the job done. Used regularly, this scrub can bring out the softest skin in even the roughest elbows and cracked heels. It can even be used on your face. Simply scoop out a bit of scrub. Rub gently over wet skin in a circular motion to buff away dead skin cells. The creamy texture leaves a nice bit of moisture behind. It's what is missing from your skin care routine.
With off of the fabulous stuff in this jar, what isn't there? Parabens, phthalates, and artificial colors. You may not have issue with these things, and that's fine. But there is no room for them in our scrubs.
