Skinformation: Sugar Sweet
This time of year is great for baking. With the holidays near and the cold, winter days upon us, we like to cozy up with a cup of Cocoa and get to work on our favorite family cookie recipes. Peanut Butter Blossoms, Shortbread, Chocolate Chip…the list goes on in our family! We each have a different favorite, so naturally, we make them all!
What’s the secret to a good cookie? Well, butter and sugar, of course!
The winter months are not only a great time for baking, but also for taking great care of our skin. One of our favorite winter products features the same secret ingredients as a warm batch of homemade cookies! In our case, it’s Cocoa Butter and Brazilian Brown Sugar. Now doesn’t that sound delicious?
Like BUTTA. Our Brazilian Brown Sugar and Cocoa Butter Body Polish, great for even the most sensitive skin types, is the perfect gift for anyone who enjoys taking long baths, or pampering themselves. Brown Sugar gently removes rough surface cells while nourishing Cocoa and Shea Butters deeply condition. A euphoric blend of plant essences uplift your spirit and leave your skin deliciously soft and alluring.
Brown sugar is a mineral-rich natural resource that contains calcium, potassium, phosphor and iron. These minerals help soften and condition the skin. Molasses, found in brown sugar, contains beneficial amounts of B vitamins, potent antioxidants that help stimulate cell rejuvenation.
Cocoa butter, also known as theobroma (“food of the gods”) oil, is the solid, edible natural fat of the cacao bean, extracted during the making of chocolate and cocoa powder. It is one of the most stable fats known, containing natural antioxidants that prevent rancidity. It is used for its smooth texture in various foods, as well as in skin care products. Cocoa butter softens and lubricates the skin, and melts at body temperature making it good for massage creams.
To use the Body Polish, we recommend stirring gently with your finger (the oils and sugar separate when they settle). Apply to the skin with a gentle massaging motion to exfoliate and hydrate. Rinse and enjoy the fresh, velvety-smooth skin newly revealed. Just a reminder this product is not for use on the face. For that, we recommend our Egyptian Geranium with Adzuki Bean and Cranberry Facial Scrub.
Here’s to healthy, glowing, radiant skin!
