Our Lite Sugar Scrub has been formulated with fine grind sugar granules and the following therapeutic active raw ingredients:
Organic sunflower oil for Oleic acids with high amounts of Vitamins A, D, and E, as well as beneficial amounts of lecithin, and unsaturated fatty acids. Deeply nourishing and conditioning for the skin and it is highly recommended for recipes designed to treat dry, weathered, aged, and damaged skin. It is easily absorbed and applied.
Coconut oil for beneficial Lauric Acid in high quantities. Lauric acid is a medium chain fatty acid, which has the additional beneficial function of being translated into monolaurin in the human or animal body. Monolaurin is the antiviral, antibacterial, and antiprotozoal monoglyceride used by the human or animal to destroy lipid coated viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza, various pathogenic bacteria including listeria monocytogenes and heliobacter pylori, and protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
MSM, which is organic sulfur from the Oceans of the world. MSM occurs naturally in the human body. It actually makes up 5% of the human body and is essential for every organ, cell, tissue, hormone, enzyme, antibody, and function found in the body. This whole food is a beautifying mineral, and contributes to hair, skin, nail, and joint renewal and health. Bio-available MSM must be continually replenished for optimal youth, nutrition and health.
Kukui Nut Oil has been shown to be effective in soothing psoriasis and eczema. It does not leave an oily residue, and has a high linoleic and linolenic acid content. Kukui Nut Oil contains vitamins A, C, and E, providing anti-oxidants that help to protect the skin. This unique oil is able to penetrate into the deepest skin layers, while creating a protective shield that locks in moisture.
Macadamia Nut oil is a priceless delight for the skin and has proven itself to be one of the best regenerative oils available. It is high in monounsaturated fatty acids, and closely resembles sebum (the oil naturally produced by ones skin to help protect it). Macadamia oil is a fabulous, protective oil with a high absorption rate and has been successfully used as a healing oil for scars, sunburns, minor wounds and other irritations.
Vitamin E rounds out this wonder-scrub for natural preservation, free radical scavenging, antioxidant activity, and fat soluble skin cell food.
