This lip scrub effectively removes dead skin cells with a blend of top-quality and fairly traded organic black sugar and muscovado sugar packed with amino acids and minerals. A nutrient-rich sugar blend is suspended in nourishing oils, such as jojoba, carrot seed, coconut, and olive to help with gentle exfoliation while adding hydration. Chemical exfoliants, such as capryloyl salicylic acid (BHA), and gluconolactone (PHA), helps further exfoliation. A sulfate-free foaming agent derived from a fatty acid from coconut is moisturizing, and safe for sensitive skin. It activates an oil-based scrub, turning into a foaming wash to complete the exfoliating process with a clean yet hydrating finish.
How to use
Massage a small amount onto wet lips with very gentle pressure. Rinse or wipe off with a damp cloth. Follow with a hydrating lip balm like Organic Seeds Lip Moisture or Organic Fruits Lip Moisture. For best results, use it in the morning after an overnight sleeping mask to fully soften the dead skin cells before exfoliating.
What else you need to know
Lips are naturally dry because they don’t have oil glands. Thus, it can be challenging for the lips to retain moisture, and it is important to hydrate the lips properly. For soft, plump, and moisturized lips, regular exfoliation comes before applying lip balms because dead skin cells can prevent the lip balms from reaching the skin underneath the build-up of flaky areas, which causes further dryness. Exfoliation helps reveal the healthier skin underneath that needs proper moisturization to prevent further dryness.
