Bamboo Face Scrub
Formerly The Cacao Brightening Scrub
Sometimes we forget to exfoliate weekly. Set that reminder on your smart phone - Time to Exfoliate Face! 1-2 times a week. Like writing it down? Be my guest.
- Exfoliating is beneficial in removing dead skin build up, brightening/lightening acne spots and removing surface whiteheads and blackheads.
This exfoliant is a blend of white clay, lemon peel and bamboo to exfoliate skin buildup. This mousse-like feel lifts dead skin, with fine bamboo and rose hip powder - leaving skin feeling refreshed, smooth and brighter. It rinses clean and refines pores with salicylic acid - making this a great choice for problem, oily and dry skin.
Few Key Ingredients
- Lemon Peel: a natural alternative to hydroquinone (said to be a natural skin lightener) - potential allergens such as citral and geraniol are removed.
- White Clay: lightly exfoliates and detoxifies
- Bamboo/Rosehip powder: buffs and removes impurities
- Aspen Bark: refines large pores + acne. Also a natural salicylic acid
- Sodium Lauroyl Lactylate: penetrates the layers of the skin to: deliver ingredients + moisturize.

etheric white floral, citrus notes, sweet and herbaceous.
