Scrub a dub dub

Yep. They're here. Sugar scrubs are by FAR the most requested product, and I've finally done it. I'm waiting on labels, and as soon as they arrive, I'll be listing these in the shop. More likely than not, that will be Tuesday the 2nd.

The scrub pictured is Maximo -A complex and beautiful blend of sweet cocoa, spicy black pepper, earthy patchouli with a heart of vanilla and wood - This scrub is loaded with good for you oils, raw and white sugar, and a pinch of organic ground coffee to aid in exfoliation. 

I formulated these scrubs to not be *completely* clean rinsing (if they were, that would kind of defeat the purpose, IMO). Instead, they leave a very slight layer of nourishing oil on the skin. A sheen , if you will. But you won't be greasy. They're emulsifying, so they turn into a nourishing lotion as soon as they come into contact with water.

I am considering a completely clean rinsing scrub - I've done a prototype I'm very pleased with. It's emulsified, rather than emulsifYING, meaning it goes on like a scrubby lotion, has a hint of bubbles, and rinses clean away. It would be offered in addition to the emulsifying scrub. What do you think?

Keep an eye out for these babies. They will be here soon!

Oh I am so excited! I like the idea of having a little moisturizing 'sheen' left behind.
