Sweet and Salty Exfoliants

We choose natural sources of exfoliating agents like sugar and salt in our scrubs.

Just as well, as some skin care companies have got into trouble recently for putting small plastic beads in their exfoliating products that later turn up in shellfish and other sea life - poor old prawns!

 

Sugar:

Sugar has hidden benefits when used on skin - not only does it work to remove old dead or sun damaged cells and encourages the production of new cells - it also increases your circulation and increases collagen production. Team sugar up with a great oil like Sweet Almond or Jojoba and we think you’ll be laughing all the way to a well moisturised glow!

Body, elbows, feet and lips are all target areas but we use a finer grain of sugar in our potted lip scrub Minted, which is very effective at preparing a pout and perking you up with is peppermint fragrance.

 

 

Salts:

We use the following types of salt.

  •  Sea Salt - from that brilliant blue briney sea itself.
  •  Noirmoutier Atlantic Gros Sea Salt - Where they rake it up in the sunshine. We enjoy the natural process,including the ingenious irrigation of sea water beds to use the power of sunshine to make salt. This traditional method of making salt is one of the things that attracted us the most to using it. Anything that involves a rake and a wheelbarrow for cosmetic production is a great idea we reckon!
  •  Himalayan Pink Rock Salt - not only is it a pretty addition but it contains many minerals.

 

You can find our natural exfoliants in Scrub, Sweet Feet Salty Foot Scrub & Minted Lip Buff.
