This new facial scrub is a delicate blend of unrefined sea salt (Soil Association certified), UK sourced soothing kaolin clay and gentle, calming, organic lavender essential oil The fine grain salt gently exfoliates the skin – we use fine grain sea salt for a gentle exfoliant compared to course sea salt which tends to be abrasive. The kaolin clay is soothes and extracts impurities.
Kaolin clay is a mineral rich, light clay and extremely soft in texture. Kaolin gets its name due to the clay first being taken from the hills in Gaoling, China. Kaolin can come in slightly different shades of white – sometimes pink or greenish but the whiter the clay, the purer it is. With its neutral Ph, kaolin does not dry your skin out. However it still has powerful and beneficial properties with its ability to gently extract impurities making it ideal for tackling spots and acne and also removing excess oil from the skin. Not only does this soft clay cleanse the skin without irritation, it also soothes inflammation.
For an incredibly beneficial yet also beautifully scented scrub, we’ve added a few drops of Lavender essential oil. The lavender flower is yet another of nature’s wonders with its healing benefits being seemingly endless. It is a naturally antibacterial, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory oil so works to soothe the skin whilst also helping to rid the skin of acne, spots and blemishes and heal within. This also renders lavender oil excellent for acne, scarring, soothing and calming itchy skin, or indeed skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis. It is excellent on sunburnt skin and equally so for oily skin. It even acts as an insect repellent.
