Sibu Sea Berry Therapy Exfoliating Face & Body Scrub deep cleans pores, removes dead, surface cells for a radiant shine down the line (try it on your legs for the runway model shin shine). Sustainably sourced Turkestanica Sea Berry is the star ingredient in the SIBU line. Containing over 190 bioactive compounds it thrives in the Himalayan Highlands, and is an unsurpassed source of hard to find Omega 7. I use it as an all over scrub a few times a week. A little goes a long way.
