Breakdown of ingredients:
Sugar- A natural humectant, sugar draws moisture from the environment into the skin to help hydrate the skin and keep moisture within. It is also a natural source of glycolic acid that penetrates skin to break down the bond between dead skin cells, encouraging cell regeneration for fresher, younger looking skin. This is why sugar makes such a great exfoliate, to remove dead skin cells and reveal the glowing, healthy skin cells underneath. Also, great for the winter as exfoliating the top layer of skin helps moisturizers penetrate more deeply and hydrate longer.
Coconut oil: The high moisture retaining capacity helps to prevent the skin from drying out while it’s nutrient content nourishes the skin deep down. On top of that, it has antioxidant properties and the lauric acid found in coconut oil helps to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi. Coconut oil is essential to keep your skin healthy, moisturized, and blemish free!
Peppermint oil: Creates a cooling sensation on the skin which can help to sooth tired and sore muscles. The aroma relieves stress and tension and is uplifting and invigorating.
Bergamot oil*: An anti-inflammatory that can help treat skin problems such as acne, eczema, and psoriasis. It is a very calming oil that is helpful with anxiety and depression.
*Bergamot is photosensitive so if used topically on the skin the area should not be overexposed to sunlight or ultraviolet light for 12 hours to avoid severe burning.
