Why Salt Scrubs
What Is A Salt Scrub
Salt scrub is simply a type of body scrub that is made up of salt which provides the physical exfoliation. Thanks to the unique physical and chemical properties of salt (salt is grainy in texture and is also known to be a natural detoxifier) , this type of scrub helps nourish and detoxify skin, in addition to exfoliating dead and dry skin.
Salt is also rich in many different minerals, which can have certain benefits for the skin. It is worth noting that salt scrubs may not be suitable to all types of skin types, especially due to the fact that they can be a little harsh and drying– which may not be good for dry and sensitive skin.
And with any type of scrub, these boost circulation which can cause temporary redness which may not be ideal for those with sensitive skin.

Why Grapefruit Oil?
We use grapefruit oil in all our salt scrubs. Grapefruit oil is good no matter how you look, and the positive effect on your body is undeniable: it boosts the circulation of the fluid, helps to get rid of cellulite, stimulates the lymphatic system. Besides, a recent study has shown that it also boosts metabolism and thus lose weight. Not to mention that it contains micro elements that protect your body cells.
Why Coconut Oil?
Organic refined coconut oil is great for general moisturizing and serves as a protective layer, helping to retain the moisture in your skin. Coconut oil is without a doubt, the number one lather-producing agent used in soaps. And is the first choice for most people in the cosmetics and soap industry.
Some useful tips:
- Be careful when using the scrub. Since it has oils in it, it’s dangerous to spill it on the floor as you may slip on it easily.
- Some professionals say that grapefruit essential oil is phototoxic, meaning that if your skin is highly sensitive, the scrub microparticles can cause skin irritation on contact with the sun. Though, if the scrub is washed off properly, it shouldn’t be a problem.
