Scrub Ingredient List & Definitions


Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice (Certified Organic): There is research indicating that isolated components of aloe vera, such as glycoprotein, can have some effectiveness for wound healing and as an anti-irritant.

Sodium Methyl Cocoyl Taurate: Excellent foaming properties, lubricity, detergency, and mildness.

Myristamidopropyl PG-Dimonium Chloride Phosphate: Preservative or antimicrobial.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate: Surfactant - Derived from coconut and palm oils; a safe, skin-friendly surfactant (foaming agent) for both skin and hair. This mild plant derived surfactant creates a rich, luxurious lather that effectively removes surface oil, dirt and bacteria, without stripping or drying sensitive skin. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate is also hydrophilic. This means it is attracted to water, which enables it to dissolve more readily in water, thus providing superior rinseablility.

Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate: Derived from coconut oil and lauryl alcohol; very mild cleanser and foaming agent, excellent for sensitive skin.

Hydrogenated Jojoba Wax: Semi-solid portion of Jojoba Oil. Jojoba Oil has been proven to be an effective ingredient for all skin types, even those that are acne prone. Therefore the use of Jojoba beads will not be irritating to the varied skin types.

Oryza Sativa (Rice) Powder: Has gentle exfoliating action. Considered to be non-allergenic.

Camellia Sinensis Leaf Powder (Certified Organic): anti-oxidant & anti-irritant

Avena Sativa (Oat) Kernal Extract: Oat plant. Oat extract can have anti-irritant and anti-inflammatory properties

Glycerin: Also called glycerol; it is present in all natural lipids (fats), whether animal or vegetable. It can be manufactured by the hydrolysis of fats and by the fermentation of sugars. It can also be synthetically manufactured. For some time it was thought that too much glycerin in a moisturizer could pull water out of the skin instead of drawing it into the skin. That theory now seems to be completely unfounded. What appears to be true is that glycerin shores up the skin's natural protection by filling in the area known as the intercellular matrix and by attracting just the right amount of water to maintain the skin's homeostasis. There is also research indicating that the presence of glycerin in the intercellular layer helps other skin lipids do their jobs better.

Allantoin: By-product of uric acid extracted from urea and considered an effective anti-irritant.

Olea Europaea (Olive) Leaf Extract: Remarkable increase in skin hydration and in skin elasticity.

Butylene Glycol: Among other glycols and glycerols, this is a humectant or humidifying and delivery ingredient used in cosmetics.

1,2 Hexanediol: 1,2 Hexanediol and Caprylyl Glycol, are one of the most, if not the most, effective humectant* available today.

Caprylyl Glycol: Humectant

Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer: Acrylates/C10-30 Alkyl Acrylate Crosspolymer is a non-toxic thickener suitable for use in formulations, which demand superior appearance, exceptional clarity, smooth flow (shear-thinning) and suspending or stabilizing properties. This, along with broad compatibility with typically used cosmetic ingredients, makes the polymer ideal for use in hair and skin care applications. The polymer imparts a light, cushiony feel in applications, helping to promote an enhanced tactile experience in use.

Aminomethyl Propanol: Used in cosmetics at levels of 1% or below to adjust pH.

Disodium EDTA: Abbreviation for ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid. It is a stabilizer used in cosmetics to prevent ingredients in a given formula from binding with trace elements (particularly minerals) that can exist in water and other ingredients to cause unwanted product changes such as texture, odor, and consistency problems. The technical term for this function is a chelating agent.
