Why Sugar Scrubs are best

Natural body scrubs are a luxurious healthy experience for the whole body. They provide a deep cleanse, whilst removing dead skin cells and increasing the body’s circulation. They leave the skin glowing, healthy and rejuvenated.

Personally, I love body scrubs, they leave my skin feeling sensational- to me they are like a day spa in a jar.  Many mainstream body scrubs are full of nasty ingredients and may be tested on animals, so a natural, certified cruelty-free product is a must.

There are many types of scrubs including salt, coffee and sugar scrubs. So why did we choose organic sucrose as the base of our natural Waratah & Wattle Seed Sugar Scrub?

Well, we believe that sugar is better for your skin.

Sugar is a natural, gentle abrasive which helps to remove dead skin cells and restore and refresh tired skin. Sugar has rounder granules which are generally gentler than other options such as salt, which can cause microscopic tears in the skin. Sugar scrubs are therefore better for sensitive skin and can be used more often.

When sugar is applied to the skin it helps to hydrate it and keep the moisture within as it is a natural humectant. This makes sugar more hydrating than salt scrubs, which can strip skin of natural oils.

Sugar is a natural source of glycolic acid, an alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that penetrates the skin and breaks down the “glue” that bonds skin cells, encouraging cell turnover and generating fresher, younger-looking skin. This is especially beneficial for sun-damaged and aging skin.

These benefits make sugar a “stand-out’, natural choice for your skin. And its why we have used organic sucrose as the base of our natural, vegan & certified cruelty-free body scrub.

Our waratah & wattle seed sugar scrub also contains a combination of Olive Fruit, Coconut, Avocado and Jojoba Seed Oil, with Wattle Seed, Waratah Leaf Extract with the subtle 100% natural scent of Lemon Myrtle. It is a skin sensation! It retails at $39.95 and you can check it out here.
