A creamy and granular scrub.
Shea Butter: Butyrospermum parkii is also known as shea butter. This plant lipid, extracted from the karite tree is used as an emollient in cosmetics and has smoothing properties for dry skin. Shea butter doesn't just have a rich texture; it’s also a rich source of antioxidants, including quercetin, epicatechin gallate, gallocatechin, epigallocatechin, as well as skin-replenishing fatty acids (stearic and linoleic). It is an excellent ingredient to improve dry skin
Bamboo Powder: Extract from the common bamboo plant, source of natural antioxidants and can have skin-soothing properties. This crystalline powder is very rich in mineral salt and is an excellent source of silica. Bamboo powder makes a mild exfoliant suitable for sensitive skin and for use on the face because of it’s fine texture is great for facial scrubs.
Vitamin B5: Vitamin B5 is also known as panthenol, which attracts and holds moisture. Panthenol mixes readily with many different types of ingredients, making it a versatile ingredient to be used in formulas because it improves the look and feel of skin. Fantastic in supporting wound healing, improving the regrowth of cells, essential for maintaining a healthy barrier function in the skin.
Lactic Acid: Lactic acid (AHA) is used to rejuvenate the skin by encouraging the shedding of old surface skin cells. It can reduce the appearance of fine lines, irregular pigmentation, age spots & decreases enlarged pores.
Salicylic Acid: Also called beta hydroxy acid (BHA), this multifunctional ingredient addresses many of the systemic causes of acne. Its primary benefit is as an exfoliant, helping shed dead skin in a way similar to how skin acts when we are younger. Because it has the ability to penetrate into the pore lining and exfoliate inside the pore as well as on the surface of skin, it is especially effective for reducing breakouts, including blackheads and whiteheads. In addition to these benefits, salicylic acid also has soothing properties to calm aggravated skin, can help minimise the appearance of an uneven skin tone, and has hydrating abilities that can result in smoother skin.
Natural Vitamin E: One of the most well known antioxidants for the body and for skin. It occurs naturally in human skin, but can become depleted due to constant environmental exposure in the absence of sun protection.
Vitamin A Palmitate: Combination of retinol (pure vitamin A) and the fatty acid palmitic acid. Research has shown it to be an effective antioxidant when applied to skin. Retinyl palmitate is found naturally in skin, where it works as an antioxidant, particularly in regard to helping protect skin from UV light exposure, to some extent.
