Watermelon Sugar Scrub
A fresh, ripe, juicy watermelon fragrance. Top notes of watermelon, strawberry and pineapple. Mid notes of floral and sweet peach.
Smooth and round in shape, Jojoba beads provide a natural exfoliating action that digs deep into pores. Jojoba also imitates the structure and consistency of sebum, a natural oil secreted by the sebaceous gland in the skin that works to lubricate and waterproof skin and hair. Because of it’s similarity to sebum, using jojoba can signal your skin to decrease sebum production, thus decreasing oiliness and protecting against acne breakouts.
Finally, Jojoba beads are environmentally friendly. Unlike the non-biodegradable plastic microbeads found in many everyday beauty & hygiene products such as toothpastes, soaps and scrubs that have contributed to the pollution of our waterways, Jojoba beads are naturally derived and are ultimately biodegradable!
A whipped sugar scrub is perfect for any month when skin dries in harsh conditions. The butter and oils restore moisture, while the sugar exfoliates the skin. Using a whipped body scrub regularly will help keep skin soft and smooth all year long.
Sugar is an excellent ingredient in skincare.
First, sugar is a natural humectant, meaning it draws moisture from the environment into the skin. So when you apply products with sugar or sugar derivatives, they'll actually help hydrate your skin and keep moisture within.
Secondly, 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. Glycolic acid is typically used to treat sun-damaged and aging skin.
Like we mentioned, a sugar scrub is a scrub that’s used for mechanical exfoliation. This type of exfoliation removes the top layer of skin cells, as well as impurities, dirt, and excess oils.
Brighten skin. Not only does exfoliating with a sugar scrub remove buildup from your skin, but it also helps to create a more radiant complexion, as the removal of dead cells leaves the skin looking brighter.
Gentle exfoliation. It’s no secret that certain exfoliation options can be harsh on your skin. Sugar scrubs are a gentler exfoliation option, as the sugar granules melt onto your skin for exfoliation that’s kind to your complexion. Love that!

Sugar scrubs brighten tired, dull-looking skin to promote healthy, smooth, and flawless skin. Sugar scrubs also fight skin aging in a natural way.
Another benefit of a sugar scrub is that it can be used all over the body. Perfect for any skin type. For the softest most moisturized skin.
Available in a plastic, wide-mouth jar with a wooden spoon. Gently scrub until the sugar starts to melt. It will feel slightly oily at first, but don’t worry. Simply rinse off with plain water, pat dry, and your skin will feel amazing. You won’t even need a moisturizer after your shower!
When choosing a sugar scrub, consider the key ingredient: Brown sugar is softer than granulated sugar, so can generally be used on the face and sensitive skin. Raw sugar (also known as turbinado sugar) is more naturally coarse, so is usually reserved for the body. Do a small patch test if you aren't sure how your skin will react.
