Almond is the first Simple Sugars product Lani created- and is still her favorite!
Almonds nourish, smooth, and firm skin. Note: this products contains nuts!

Extra hydrating with healing properties - choose emu oil if you have very dry skin, very sensitive skin, or a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis.
Why Simple Sugars?
Simple Sugars products cleanse, exfoliate, and moisturize in one step, so you NEVER need lotion or moisturizer (we call this Going No-Lo*!) . All products are formulated for daily use, and are safe for even the most sensitive skin.
How To Use
Simply stir your product, apply to wet skin in the shower, scrub until the sugar dissolves, rinse off, and towel dry!
What Is Emu Oil?
Emu oil adds an extra boost of moisturization to our products and is recommended for anyone with very dry skin, sensitive skin, or a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis.
Emu oil is incredibly moisturizing, but rapidly absorbs, leaving your skin super hydrated without any greasy feeling. Emu oil has a very similar chemical composition to the sebum (aka oil) naturally produced by our bodies so it is completely non-irritating. It has anti-inflammatory, pain-relieving, and healing properties making it an excellent choice for anyone suffering from a skin condition like eczema or psoriasis, and also has purported benefits for burns and scarring. It does not change the scent of the products, so your Simple Sugars product will smell just as amazing with the emu oil added as it does without it.
Emu oil is an animal product, and is derived from the back fat of the emu bird. The birds are not killed for their oil - emus are raised for their meat, and the oil is a byproduct. We use only the finest, highest quality, refined emu oil, and it is produced in the US. Simple Sugars products with emu oil are not vegan, but the products with emu oil added are the ONLY products in the Simple Sugars line that contain any animal ingredients.
I've been using the Almond body and it's wonderful. I've struggled with eczema for over 10 years and am just now stopping all topical steroid medications and your Almond Body has been a godsend getting me through topical steroid withdrawals - I'll forever be a customer!
For the last 3 winters, I have had pop-up eczema on my shins and ankles. Nothing super bad, but just annoying, itchy, and rough. This year, however, it seemed like my body was on a mission to ruin me. At first my forearms broke out with tiny red bumps and I thought it was a quick ""chicken skin"" break out that commonly happens� and then it got worse.
I nearly broke down one day from the sheer misery and near-pain I was dealing with. I did more reading and I soaked in a coconut oil and sea salt bath for 3-4 days and rubbed every lotion and oil on my skin afterward � sure it helped, but I couldn't stop itching and my bath was now lined with oil that is now taking twice as long to clean.
So, one day my boyfriend and I were watching Shark Tank and we saw the episode with your product. After your self-testimonial about your eczema, I perked up and immediately I said (out loud), "Omg! Where was she a month ago!!!"
My boyfriend gives me a box for my birthday, He's super excited and tells me it will be a great gift for my comic con trip. I open it.
It's Simple Sugar's Almond Body w/ Emu oil. I shrieked with joy!
I crossed my fingers and hoped that this might be the thing to finally save me, my skin, and my sanity. I was a little skeptical but I was ready to use it with an open mind.
I can honestly say, without a doubt, that you have saved my skin. I can (finally!) enjoy a shower, and using the almond with emu oil scrub, I feel refreshed, WAY less itchy, and my redness and irritation is nearly non-existent. Plus, I smell like a delicious cookie! ^_^ I cannot thank you enough for having figured out how to make this product � you are doing something AMAZING with your scrubs and I hope you know just how GRATEFUL I am that you have this on the market. After just ONE use, I already felt the difference. I am so happy I could cry. My eczema is finally under control and I'm not miserable anymore!
I will finally have a skin-saving arsenal to battle my seasonal war with eczema.
