Benefits of a Scrub 

Cleaning and exfoliating 

The natural abrasive ingredients in body scrubs slough away old skin, dirt and oil from the outer skin layers. This unclogs blocked pores to expose the skin’s deeper, healthier layers and reveal cleaner, fresher and younger looking skin.



Moisturizing 

Some of the harsh ingredients in commercial skin-care products can strip the body of natural oils, leaving it dry and itchy. Body scrubs made with oil, on the other hand, moisturize and nurture dry, flaky or parched skin. There are numerous beneficial oils to choose from, a selection of which can be found in the section on oils starting on page 78.
