Our Shea Sugar Scrub is formulated using a short list of carefully chosen ingredients that work cohesively to achieve beautiful, smooth skin. Exfoliate and moisturize with one simple step!
Adding exfoliation to one's daily skincare routine aids in the natural process of shedding dead skin cells and reveals the healthy, more even-toned skin hiding beneath. Exfoliation with a scrub prior to shaving improves razor glide by lifting hairs and removing dead skin cells. The combination of super-fine and regular grain sugar used as the exfoliation medium in our Shea Sugar Scrub elevates body polishing to a new level!
The Secret is Sugar; the glycolic form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) is abundant in cane sugar. AHA's break down the protein bonds acting as "glue" that holds skin cells together. This allows the dead skins cells to more easily fall away to expose healthier, more radiant skin beneath. A compounds effectiveness to penetrate the skin is largely dependent on bioavailability. Bioavailability is influenced primarily by molecular size and the glycolic form of AHA has the smallest molecular size of all, making it the most effective for exfoliation.
Great for faces and lips, but please get the unscented version.
