We’re excited to introduce our newest, and entirely luxurious, body care product. Packed with natural, hydrating ingredients, our Himalayan Salt Scrubs help soften skin while supporting a healthy glow. If you’re looking for the perfect way to pamper yourself this season, look no further. Incorporating salt scrubs into your regular beauty regimen can help increase circulation and assist in the rejuvenation of your skin cells, helping to leave your skin refreshed and revitalized.
The fine grain Pink Himalayan Salt provides gentle exfoliation that helps remove dead skin cells and other impurities from pores. The combination of Almond, Grapeseed, and Camellia oils, along with Vitamin E, help condition and moisturize your skin, making these scrubs ideal for revitalizing rough areas like feet, elbows, hands, and calluses. These scrubs come in three different scents, each one ideal for creating a spa-like atmosphere.
Unscented, Grapefruit and Lemon, Sweet Orange and Neroli Himalayan Salt Scrubs
Our Unscented Himalayan Salt Scrub is perfect for those that are sensitive to scents or anyone that loves to DIY their own blends. Add your favorite essential oils and create a custom scrub that is uniquely you! Due to the salt to carrier oil ratio, we recommend adding half the recommended amount of essential oils to ensure proper dilution.
The Grapefruit and Lemon Himalayan Salt Scrub is perfect for citrus lovers. This scrub has a lovely light, sweet, and citrus aroma. Pink Grapefruit, Lemon Essence, and Steam Distilled Lemon blend to create this soft citrus scent.
Our Sweet Orange and Neroli Himalayan Salt Scrub is perfect for Neroli fans and anyone who loves fresh floral fragrances. This scrub has a light citrus scent with a lovely floral note from the Neroli. The aroma of this scrub is an excellent spa-like addition to your skincare routine.
How to Use Salt Scrubs
When gently massaged over your skin in a circular motion, salt scrubs will pull off dead skin cells and reveal baby-soft skin. The oils and hydrating ingredients that Plant Therapy adds will leave your freshly exfoliated skin properly moisturized and conditioned so it stays silky soft for longer. To further lock in moisture, make sure to follow up with lotion, cream, or body oil.
These salt scrubs are ideal for use on the body but can be used on the face. However, we recommend testing a small patch of skin on your neck and checking for negative reactions for a day or two before applying to the whole face. Exfoliating the face should always be done gently and know that exfoliation of any kind has the potential to irritate or aggravate acne, blemishes, and abrasions. Also, take care not to use these scrubs on open or irritated skin as it could sting or burn (think jumping into the ocean right after shaving).
To avoid aggravating your skin and/or over-exfoliating, we recommend limiting the use of scrubs to once a week.
How to Choose: Salt Scrubs vs. Sugar Scrubs
One of the main differences between salt scrubs and sugar scrubs is consistency. Salt and sugar scrubs will both provide exfoliation and help support healthy, polished skin. However, due to their consistency, salt scrubs are better suited for tough patches of skin like elbows, knees, heels, and calluses.
As amazing as salt scrubs are, they might not be the right choice for everyone. Salt by nature is a little coarser and might irritate sensitive skin instead of soothing it. Additionally, salt scrubs are naturally more abrasive than sugar scrubs and won’t dissolve like sugar does. (Bonus: sugar is also a natural humectant!)
