Three letters describe the delectable scent of this anti-oxidant packed scrub: Y.U.M. (and yes, the caps are intentional!) And lest you think we're just trying to ride the coattails of one of our best-selling AND best-smelling body products, think again! Strawberries have a righteous place in the facial scrub lineup for lots of reasons, not the least of which include:
Strawberries are BURSTING WITH VITAMIN C! Vitamin C is an essential component in the body’s production of collagen and a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged and photodamaged skin. Results from clinical trials show that when applied topically, vitamin C promotes collagen formation and mitigates the effects of free radicals, helping to maintain firm and youthful skin.
Strawberries contain salicylic acid. Simply put, salicylic acid aids in the process of exfoliation by eliminating surface skin cells and opening up pores which reduces breakouts and helps eliminate acne.
Strawberries contain high levels of ellagic acid. Ellagic acid is a powerful antioxidant, so it protects against the signs of aging. According to Science Daily, a 2009 study by Korean scientists showed that ellagic acid used topically helped to protect the skin against the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays.
This scrumptious facial is great for normal to oily skin types.
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. To use, simply stir your product, apply to wet skin in the shower, scrub until the sugar dissolves, rinse off, and towel dry!
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.
