The 90% Organic Vanilla Coffee Body Scrub is luxuriously revitalising with finely ground vanilla-infused Arabica coffee beans, anti-inflammatory organic soapnut extract and organic fine raw sugar in a base of avocado, safflower, sunflower, castor & rice bran organic oils with pure essential oils of grapefruit & juniper. This exfoliating scrub, naturally rich in anti-oxidants, removes dead skin cells leaving the skin healthier, nourished and instantly smoothed.
ARABICA COFFEE BEANS Coffee is rich in antioxidants, making it a great anti-inflammatory ingredient. It contains caffeine, which draws out excess moisture from your skin, causing it to look and feel smoother and firmer. In this scrub, coffee acts as a mild exfoliant, removing dead skin cells and exposing fresh, soft skin.
RAW BROWN SUGAR is a natural humectant, which means it draws moisture from the environment to the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they'll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within. Raw sugar also contains natural glycolic acids which is an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin helps remove dead skin cells and encourages newer, younger-looking skin.
ORGANIC WILDCRAFTED SOAPNUTS EXTRACT has a stimulating effect to skin cells and helps the skin to produce it's own hyaluronic acid, which creates better hydrated, softer and smoother skin. Inside the fruit there are also natural sugars which attract moisture and lock it in, making the skin more resistant and elastic - therefore helping in the battle against dry and ageing skin.
ORGANIC AVOCADO OIL It's rich in healing vitamins B, C, D, E, K and, especially, A. It has a high amount of vitamin E in it, which is an antioxidant, and it does hydrate deeper and better than coconut oil, due to its monounsaturated fat content. It has a high sterolin content, which are compounds that are anti-inflammatory and immune modulating. In the case of avocado oil, they can help heal sun damage and age spots, as well as inflammatory skin conditions like blemishes and eczema.
ORGANIC CASTOR OIL is naturally astringent, so it helps pull impurities from the skin. Castor oil, when applied to the skin, penetrates deep and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The high concentrated fatty acids penetrate the skin easily, which helps remove dry patches and restores hydration of the skin. Castor oil is rich in Ricinoleic acid, which fights off the acne-causing bacteria. It effectively penetrates the skin layers, making it an excellent remedy for acne.
