It's finally here! Our prebiotic body scrubbing clay has just arrived and is ready to transform your skin.
This scrubbing clay isn’t your average body scrub. First of all, it features upcycled coffee grounds, which we source from a local coffee manufacturer that would otherwise toss them. These coffee grounds offer physical exfoliation, while their high caffeine content helps firm skin and improve its radiance. Chicory root extract is a prebiotic, meaning it serves as a snack for the good bacteria on skin and ultimately helps them flourish. Since exfoliation can sometimes interfere with or even damage the skin’s microbiome — leading to an overgrowth of bad, inflammation-causing bacteria — it’s important to support the growth of good bacteria and ensure a healthy microbiome. Prebiotics do just that.
Finally, like a detoxifying clay mask for your body, kaolin red clay works to clarify skin, decongest pores, and just deep-clean skin — that’s one of the reasons this formula can help with body breakouts. In this formula, these ingredients work together to soften, smooth, and balance skin in one restorative (and mess-free!) step.
how do I use it?
In the shower after cleansing, rub a quarter-sized amount of clay between your hands. Massage in circular motions all over your body to slough away dead skin, then rinse off residual polish. Use up to 3x a week.
*Optional: leave on for two minutes as a body mask before rinsing! This is particularly helpful on breakout-prone areas.
