It’s been a long day. You’ve managed to break a sweat in the hot Jamaican sun and when that finally mixes with your choice of lotion, it can become a pretty sticky mess at the end of the day. What better way to unwind and cleanse after a hectic day than with a moisturising body scrub. Locally made, Irie Rock’s Pure Coconut Sensation Body Scrub is a blend of Sugar, Coconut oil, Cocoa Butter, Vitamin E, and other natural ingredients that help the skin and its cells to thrive.
What can these ingredients do for me?
Sugar body scrubs are always more ideal than salt scrubs, for example, since sugar particles are finer and would less likely leave microscopic scratches on the skin. Moreover, sugar is a natural humectant and does a good job of attracting the moisture in the air and keeping that hydration within the skin.
What are the skin benefits of coconut oil?
Another ingredient, coconut oil, is a natural moisturisers. Coconut oil goes the extra mile with its antibacterial and anti-fungal properties to ensure that once the sugar crystals remove the surface dirt, the skin and its cells can be stripped of any micro-bacteria.
What are some skin benefits of cocoa butter?
Cocoa Butter’s antioxidant property is known to fight free radicals that bring about ageing, dull skin, and dark patches. It goes further to offer deep moisturization since it is high in fatty acids.
All these ingredients combined ensures that the skin will gain and retain all the moisture possible, making it possible to have silky smooth skin even if you shower/ have a bath with hard water (water with a lot of chlorine).
For those of us who are looking for a product to provide both moisture and a cleanse, this product is definitely a must since it does all the aforementioned and has a very neutral and ‘quiet’ scent.
What are you waiting for? ’Tis the season for silky soft skin that’ll pair nicely with your Christmas air chilled blankets.
