Essence is the same product base that makes all of our products so amazing, just without any scent or special add ins.
For the Seriously Sensitive:
While our entire product line is formulated specially for even the most sensitive skin, Essence is here for those of you who won't go anywhere near a scented product. You can't get any more gentle than this.
Eczema or Psoriasis?
If you're one of our many customers who suffer from eczema, psoriasis, or another severe dry skin condition, we recommend choosing the emu oil option with your product.
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.
Contains high levels of Vitamin E. Very moisturizing but non-comedogenic.
Cherry Kernel Oil:
Light yet emollient, Cherry Kernel Oil contains high levels of Vitamin A and E and promotes skin elasticity.
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 recently ordered a jar of Essence Body Scrub with Emu Oil, and all I can say is WOW! I have psoriasis, and have been having a hard time getting it cleared up. I heard about your product, and decided it was worth a try, but not feeling particularly optimistic about it. What a pleasant surprise to find my legs 90% clear after just 4 days of use. I am wearing a dress today for the first time in months. Thank you so much for this product! I plan to continue ordering, and telling everyone I know how much it has changed my life!
I first tried the Essence Body and my skin LOVED it. My eczema nearly disappeared within a week of use. My sister recommended your products to me and I can't say enough about how much they have helped.
I have dealt with psoriasis for almost 30 years, beginning at the age of 8. About 3 years ago, I discovered the Essence Body Scrub with Emu Oil. Thanks to the Essence Body Scrub, I save money on prescription medications because I don't have to apply them as much anymore. Not to mention, using the scrub vs. the medication is MUCH better for my skin. The scrub has been a lifesaver and I'm always sure to stock up so that I don't run out. Thank you for creating this wonderful product.
I was so impressed by your pitch, but also aching to try your product, because like you, i have suffered from eczema. The air is so dry in Japan in the winter and i was struggling to find a cream for my hands that stopped them from itching. I looked online and i was very happy to find your company thriving and that you could ship products to me in Japan. I was amazed at how quickly the package arrived - literally within a week. Wow! Now i am using the Essence Body Scrub and frankly, its working wonders. My hands are so much improved after just three days use. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Your product saved my life. I went from red, itchy, flaky, oozy skin (over most my body) to mostly clear skin within days of using your Essence Body. Beyond grateful!
