Pure Love Body Scrub Ingredients: Comfort, Purification, and Rejuvenation
The ingredients in our Pure Love Body Scrub strike a delicate balance between soothing and energizing, comforting and purifying. They bring tranquility to the mind while detoxifying, softening, and rejuvenating the skin. They also include sweet, indulgent botanicals that together create an irresistible aroma, sure to leave you feeling luxurious and full of self-love. Here are a few of the powerhouses behind the magic:
Himalayan Sea Salt
The ancient Himalayas have long held the key to soft, glowing, and healthy skin. These cleansing sea salts are well-known for their ability to induce calm and tranquility, hence their common use as bath salts or the popularity of Himalayan salt lamps. Furthermore, Himalayan sea salt also has strong antimicrobial properties, making it a fantastic cleansing and purifying agent, capable of combating acne and soothing redness and irritation.
Native to South Africa and cultivated in Europe and Asia, geranium oil is a natural astringent that soothes redness, calms inflammation, and provides deep hydration and toning to the skin. As dermatologist Howard Sobel, MD, notes, “geranium helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles while calming irritated spots and boosting naturally glowing skin.” By naturally tightening the skin, it combats wrinkles and fine lines, and its anti-inflammatory properties enable it to soothe acne and hyperpigmentation. As a result, geranium oil lends the skin a natural evenness and radiance.
Known for its delicate, soothing scent, jasmine is an aromatherapeutic powerhouse: it soothes the mind and boosts one’s mood, producing powerful feelings of well-being and romance. But it’s not only a harbinger of inner tranquility; it also has strong antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, enabling it to rid the skin of toxins and impurities.
Lauded in Ayurvedic tradition for its countless beauty and wellness applications, this essential oil is packed with anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antiseptic properties. As a result, it makes an especially potent ingredient against signs of aging, like wrinkles, inflammation, and age spots. It also minimizes oil production while simultaneously keeping the skin deeply hydrated, making it a powerful ingredient for combatting acne and irritation.
